The NFL has tried to explain one of referee Bill Leavy’s questionable decisions in Sunday’s Packers-Giants game, but Tom Coughlin doesn’t sound satisfied.
The Giants coach said he “doubts” he’ll hear from the league about why Leavy didn’t overturn a call where Greg Jennings was ruled down by contact before an apparent fumble. Coughlin was asked if he saw anything on film that would make the call even clearer.
“There is, but I won’t get into it,” Coughlin said via Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger.
Coughlin was also still upset about the roughing the passer penalty called against Osi Umenyiora, saying he had “no idea” why the penalty was called.
“Aggressive football play,” Coughlin called it. “The quarterback is following through as he releases the ball. The hit is from the side, there’s not helmet involved, it’s from shoulders to waist. We’ll coach that one forever.”
That blown call seemed to be even less debatable than the Jennings play. Perhaps that why we didn’t hear anything from the league about it.
