Friday, September 19, 2008's Matt Mosley backs Ed Hochuli

In his post titled "Should Hochuli have been suspended?"'s Matt Mosley defends Ed Hochuli. Mosley writes that some are saying the NFL should suspend Hochuli. Here is a brief take on Mosley's response:
    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.
