Two potential PI calls missed.
I honestly prefer football played this way... just means they better officiate like that both ways. No bullshit PI call vs David Long this next drive.

Those PIs were obvious. I prefer they be called.

They won't officiate it that way both ways. I guarantee you we'll get totally fucked like we always do. They won't call holding on the Maryland OL either.

I didn't have a huge issue with the no-call on Grant Perry but the missed one on DPJ was awful. TBF it was a horrible throw too though. Can't miss that one.

Onwenu out again today.

Can't tackle the receiver before he touches the ball when they are that far open.

I wonder why Khalid Hill has almost completely disappeared as the goal line/short yardage guy this year. Dude was money last year.

Nice plunge by Poggi for the TD there though.

Till you call it, the defensive backs will keep doing it. Holding works the same way, call it early and offensive lineman are less likely to keep doing it.

Very good, means Maryland might not pass the 20 passing yards mark... excluding a screen play.

Just call it both ways, refs. Be fair.

Going into this game, I thought that the spread was probably too low. It will take some major shenanigans to lose this one.

Poggi from Maryland is why he got that goal line carry.

Agree Hannibal, if you've seen Maryland recently tough to see this being even close. Point spread was reasonable.

Peters with another pass yards away from any receiver.

Good pass protection today but another terrible throw by Peters.

I don't understand why we can't get a guy who can just make basic throws. I know that we can't abandon the pass but I'm cringing with every dropback now.

Huge break there on the dropped double pass. That was probably 6.

That would've been a TD for Maryland.

LOL The crowd reminds me of when the Red Wings play a game at Phoenix.

Nice PBU by Metellus.

Nice throw by their QB too. Why can't we get a guy who can do that?

Lucky on that punt too.

And a lovely run by Higdon. Peters looks more comfortable on the run than in the pocket.

Peters has been good enough when his receivers aren't being tackled with the ball in the air. Someone (Wheatley or Peters) was on the wrong page with his one incompletion, that's to be expected with so much inexperience.

Is Durkin high? You’d get laughed at that call if you tried it in Madden.

Fake punt on your own 30? The fuck?
