Complaining about the officiating crew after a loss is generally bad form by a head coach. But we can’t blame Redskins coach Mike Shanahan on Sunday.
It’s not the officiating was one sided. Jeff Triplette’s crew made shaky calls that hurt both teams, with two particularly bad roughing calls. (On London Fletcher and Vince Wilfork.)
Shanahan didn’t try to hide his feelings about Triplette’s call when the officials flagged Fletcher for unnecessary roughness against Tom Brady. (We agree. It was horrible.)This video is no longer available. Click here to watch more NBC Sports videos!
