IIJM: NFL’s Worst Team

Is it just me or is the NFL’s worst team NOT the Detroit Lions?

I submit for your consideration the team of NFL referees as the NFL’s worst team this season.

Usually I don’t complain too much about the referees because I think it’s a crutch to use them as an excuse for why you lost the game.  If you want to win the game, you play the way you need to to win the game.

But it just seems that there are few weeks this season that haven’t involved some kind of discussion about how a game or multiple games were called poorly.

Mike Pereira has been the head of officiating for the NFL since 2001, but his actual officiating experience is only 2 years.  In any case, when the post season comes and team owners are considering whether to keep their head coach, I suggest that Roger Goodell take a good look at his home office coaching staff.

  1. Yeah, I’ve noticed more cases of the ref just not knowing the rule. Blown judgment calls are part of the game, but getting the rules wrong isn’t .
