New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady went at the referees of the Thursday night game between the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is joining Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars fans in their disdain for the awful officiating during the Thursday Night Football game.
During the opening game of Week 3, referees are calling holding and roughing the passer penalties that don’t exist, and missing pass interferences that should be called.
Well, even Brady is fed up with this garbage.
Couldn’t agree more, Tom. If I wasn’t writing for a Titans site, I would have shut this game off already. It’s really that bad because the flow of the game has been slowed to a snail’s pace.
Since 2018, the Titans are the least penalized team in the NFL under head coach Mike Vrabel. Coming into Week 3, the Titans were also tied for the least amount of penalties in the NFL.
That’s why the amount of penalties up until this point are stunning. This simply isn’t a team that commits penalties at this rate.
Titans linebacker Kamalei Correa was called for a roughing the passer on quarterback Gardner Minshew when it was clear the hit by Correa on the Jags quarterback was a clean one and not late at all.
Rookie receiver A.J. Brown had a pass thrown his way, but clearly had his arm held down by Jags corner, A.J. Bouye. Fellow receiver Tajae Sharpe was called for a holding penalty that was a joke of a call if I’ve ever seen one.
The list goes on and on, and even referee expert Mike Pereira and Hall of Fame quarterback and announcer Troy Aikman disagreed with some of the calls on the broadcast.
The refs need to tighten this up, and hopefully Brady’s tweets help the league see the kind of trash calls that some of these referees are making.
