So we are all worried that Marion Barber is going to rack up 3 or 4 facemask penalties per game, but did you see how many times Brian Westbrook Grasped our defenders facemasks?!
When Patrick Watkins got flagged look at the shot of Westbrook, fingers tipped into the helmet in a death grip pushing on Watkins...but he wasn't called, nor was he called at all during the game. I saw at least 4 times, two of which his fingers gripped the mask...still no penalty! So what's up with this new call that is going uncalled?
And how bad a night did the Ref.s have missing or messing up calls! By my count there were 6 to 8 missed or blown calls. For 3 quarters of the game I thought they couldn't throw the flag on the eagles....and just what constitutes a hold? Jersey pull, miss directing a body? --Like oh say Jenkins at the goal line when Westbrook scored on the out pass! COME On Refs, play fair!!!
And one final point. Sure McNabb got free a lot on his own but go back and re-watch, their line blocked to the ground! Hudson H. teach our guys to stay with the block as long as they do and then to also push the pile!!! Man does it make a difference! Oh and Defense take some karate in the off season so you can bat away their hands Before they grab you cause DeMarcus looked like a kid grabbed by his dad when their much bigger tackle got his hands on him (remember DeMarc your legs where built for speed, you don't have the big butt of Reggie White to jack people and bull rush them back into the Qb, so hit him, bounce, rip and redirect...and see if he can catch up with you then!).
