- Oh really? With so many close games, is it wise to sit down one of the league's most respected (and best) officials? I don't think so. I don't recall the league suspending a certain coach who was caught cheating last fall. But some people think Hochuli should be suspended for making a human error. Transparency? Give me a break.
Norv Turner rips Hochuli. Turner, who appears so mad he could cry, said, "(Hochuli) said he blew it. And that is not, to me, acceptable. This is a high-level performance game, and that is not acceptable to have a game decided on that play."
And was I the only one who was impressed how Hochuli openly admitted the call was bad. Question: How many refs, let alone anyone, admit to a mistake so publicly? Answer: Not many.
By the way, the Chargers are not that good. They will finish at 8-8 at best. They blew the game with Carolina. The ref made a bad call or two, but the Chargers had their chances to rise up and stop the Denver Broncos on that last drive. The Chargers could have stopped the two-point conversion and did not. They may be without Tomlinson this week against the New York Jets. And as a non-Brett Favre lover, I can see Favre topping the Chargers on Monday Night Football.
