Cortland Finnegan likes replacements: “They let you play football”

St. Louis Rams Finnegan intercepts a pass intended for Washington Redskins Davis during their NFL football game in St. Loui Reuters

The biggest controversy in Week Two of the regular season came when Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan bumped Redskins receiver Josh Morgan, Morgan retaliated by throwing the ball at Finnegan, and the officials reacted by flagging Morgan but not Finnegan. So it’s not surprising that Finnegan thinks the replacement officials are doing a fine job.

Finnegan told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the replacements working in the NFL while the regular officials are locked out have received his seal of approval.

They just let you play football,” Finnegan said. “They let you play football out there, and that’s one of those things you enjoy.”

Although NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is leading the lockout, Finnegan said he actually sees the replacement officials as a counterweight to the rules changes that Goodell has tried to make.

“I admire the old-school players,” Finnegan said. “The [Jack] Tatums, you know, the Mean Joe Greenes. Those guys played football. . . . That was football. It’s been watered down since, with the commissioner and the rules.”

A guy who has said he aspires to be the dirtiest player in the NFL saying he likes the replacement officials because they don’t enforce the rules as stringently as the regular officials isn’t exactly a ringing endorsement of the quality of the replacements’ work. But thinking the replacements are doing a fine job is one issue on which Finnegan and Goodell can find common ground.

    Translation from Courtney Finnegan – “They don’t flag me for being the dirtball player I am!”

    What else do you need to know? Bring back the regular refs, please.

  3. f00sballfan says: Sep 19, 2012 4:41 PM

    Translation: “they let you get away with a bunch of crap you wouldn’t normally get away with.”

  4. crisper57 says: Sep 19, 2012 4:42 PM

    Cortland Finnegan is the scum of the Earth. Of course he would like getting away with dirty plays.

  5. weissmandylan says: Sep 19, 2012 4:44 PM

    Football isn’t fighting after every play like in the Redskins-Rams game

  6. fofofotey says: Sep 19, 2012 4:45 PM

    Finnegan needs another stomping. Andre Johnson doesn’t play him this year, someone else needs to step up.

  7. deljzc says: Sep 19, 2012 4:46 PM

    I agree with him 100%. I enjoy watching the battled between WR and DB now without every ticky-tack or incidental contact called.

    I know I’m in the minority, but I think the replacement refs are doing okay. They definitely take too long with all the huddles, but I think they are getting just as many calls right as the old guys.

    If we hyper-analyzed the old refs like we are doing with these new refs, the stories would all be the same.

    Don’t let the liberal, pro-union biases of the media sway you. It’s not as bad as they want you to believe. The sky is not falling.

    Cortland = my hero!

  9. kingpel says: Sep 19, 2012 4:47 PM

    I’ve noticed this as well. These guys arent throwing flags for defensive lineman grazing a Quarterback’s helmet with their hand or for a bit of contact between the receivers and cornerbacks. They let them play and I for one enjoy it. This is how the NFL officiates playoff games anyway so why not do it in the regular season.

    But the missed touchdowns and poor management of downs, distance and time is another matter altogether.

  10. geniusfan says: Sep 19, 2012 4:48 PM

    I think any person who admires Jack Tatum should be ashamed. Here’s a man who paralyzed Daryl Stingley with a cheap hit in the preseason no less and the guy never apologized or showed any remorse for the hit.

    Cortland Finnegan has always been a punk and is the biggest goon in the NFL right now.

  11. droop says: Sep 19, 2012 4:48 PM

    At the end of the day, everybody needs to stop criticizing how well or how poorly the referees are doing out there. Each week they are willingly refereeing a sport in which players are receiving millions of dollars to play. There’s more than enough pressure for any human being to handle. If fans don’t like the officiating, they need to stop complaining, go on http://www.nflra.org and apply themselves.

  12. blacknole08 says: Sep 19, 2012 4:49 PM

    I actually agree a bit with Finnegan. These refs actually let the players play. They are terrible, yes, but they let the players decide who wins. The real refs always cater to certain players.

  13. vanmorrissey says: Sep 19, 2012 4:49 PM

    While I do like the fact they allow the looser style of play, I wonder if the NFL coached them on this to let the defense somewhat catch up with all the rules favoring the offense. Allows more old school minus the safety issues. Enjoying not having prima donna receivers waving for a flag after every time they get touched or bumped into down field. Flopping is for the NBA.

  14. jtdapit50 says: Sep 19, 2012 4:49 PM

    Agreed. it’s crazy enough these players get paid millions. Let them play rough and earn that money. I understand the long lasting head conditions from playing the game, but you walk away with a place in history and millions of dollars. Things that normal people would give anything to attain….

  15. steelers4385 says: Sep 19, 2012 4:50 PM

    Says one of the more well known dirty players in NFL

  16. thereisalwaysnextyear says: Sep 19, 2012 4:51 PM

    Well this is about the surest statement yet that the real officials need to come back. He means they let you play dirty and cheat.

  17. fjackiemarlo says: Sep 19, 2012 4:53 PM

    The officiating in this game was crazy.! I think the replacement refs from this game came right out of the WWE.

    I almost can’t blame Morgan for what he did as the Rams were taking cheap shots like that all game and getting away with it.

  18. electionconfidential says: Sep 19, 2012 4:54 PM

    I have nothing to say to Cortland Finnegan that Andre Johnson hasn’t already said better.

  19. waxthat says: Sep 19, 2012 5:00 PM

    Letting the players play is one thing…missing obvious calls is another. Bottom line is, these officials don’t know the NFL rules and cannot control the pace/emotions of the game.

    Bring back Popeye, please.

  20. droop says: Sep 19, 2012 5:00 PM

    as long as i’ve watched the game, the 2nd person to act gets penalized. refs did right.

  21. duck99 says: Sep 19, 2012 5:01 PM

    Will enjoy watching him and Brandon Marshall/Alshon Jeffrey mix it up Sunday. Jeffrey ripped off the helmet of Deangelo Hall in the preseason so you know Finnegan will try to entice him to do the same. If the Bears get a nice lead I hope they give him the Andre Johnson treatment.

  22. yousuxxors says: Sep 19, 2012 5:02 PM

    i love that they let defenses actually play but i cant the dirty play like this that they let go on

  23. pjamdragon says: Sep 19, 2012 5:03 PM

    Tell that to Jacoby Jones. Hand fighting and gets a flag.
    It’s the inconsistency of the replacement refs that is the problem. & swallowing their whistles when a play is obviously dead leading to some players still playing and some not which results in injuries (Locker).
    Why do we have to wait for a game’s outcome to be tarnished or something worse like a guy’s career being jeopardized?

    Don’t we live in a post 9-11 world?
    What’s that? the oil well needs a new blow out protector?
    Lets just wait and see what happens…

  24. 4drams says: Sep 19, 2012 5:05 PM

    When Finnegan is on your team, he’s quite an asset. If he’s not, he’s just an ….

  25. peytonsneck18 says: Sep 19, 2012 5:07 PM

    if finnegan says this, then the league is in real trouble, hurry back real officials!!!

  26. cowboyhater says: Sep 19, 2012 5:07 PM

    The Rams are coached to play dirty, and that was evident last Sunday against the Skins. Coach Fisher did nothing to stop the dirty play throughout the game. The extra elbows, and dragging players after they were tackled was ridiculous. That took place throughout the entire game. Fisher has no class, and I was hoping Shanahan was going to clock his a** after the game. Courtland will be targeted by the refs in the coming weeks, and if he keeps that crap up, you will see him either fined or ejected.

  27. mikespimpin says: Sep 19, 2012 5:10 PM

    Agreed… Less ticky-tack fouls and more FOOTBALL. I like the replacement refs!

  28. dirtybird28 says: Sep 19, 2012 5:12 PM

    I would not have expected anything else from Cortland Finnegan.

    Spoken like someone who was at the lake this Sunday instead of watching football. This isn’t “maybe he bumped him, maybe he didn’t” this is a real-life reenactment of “The Longest Yard”.

    This is “maybe he bumped him, maybe he didn’t, but he sure as heck shoved the opposing coach on the sideline after the play was over.” This is “maybe he grabbed his jersey a little bit, I didn’t really notice, I was too busy watching someone stomp on Brian Orakpo’s injured shoulder while he was going for a loose ball on the ground.”

    This has nothing to do with politics, it has nothing to do with the media, it has to do with keeping control over 22 enormous, aggressive, freakishly strong men out on the field. If only the union guys can do that, so be it, but it’s better than watching our favorite players risk their seasons and their careers every Sunday due to gross incompetence.

    “Although NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is leading the lockout, Finnegan said he actually sees the replacement officials as a counterweight to the rules changes that Goodell has tried to make.

    “I admire the old-school players,” Finnegan said. “The [Jack] Tatums, you know, the Mean Joe Greenes. Those guys played football. . . . That was football. It’s been watered down since, with the commissioner and the rules. ” ”

    ——–

    This is absolutely what I’ve been thinking this season.

    Listen, the media had this storyline in its sights before the first kickoff of the first preseason game. The reality is, considering the overwhelming, over-the-top scrutiny of every call — which the regulars don’t have to deal with — I think these replacements are actually having LESS of an impact on the game than the regulars because they aren’t necessarily calling all the ticky-tack phantom stuff we’ve seen the regulars start calling in the last 3 or 4 years.

    The replacements are not perfect. They are a little slower and less polished at some of the finer points of officiating than the regulars, but I like that the game has been taken back to be a little more like what it was a few years ago, before making a tackle became akin to the precision and delicacy required when performing surgery.

    It’s refreshing.

  32. skinsfaninnebraska says: Sep 19, 2012 5:18 PM

    The head shot on Fred Davis was NOT a ticky-tack foul. The illegal hit on Alex Smith while he was sliding was NOT a ticky-tack foul. RGIII getting his head slammed to the turf after the play was over was NOT a ticky-tack foul. The list goes on and on from all the dirty stuff that was not called last weekend.

    These replacements are missing some serious stuff that is going to get someone seriously hurt. It’s just a matter of time until one or more games explode into bench-clearing brawls.

    I’ve never been a huge supporter of NFLRA officials over the years, but at least they do keep games under control for the most part. It is time to get them back on the field.

  33. 2ndaryinsanity says: Sep 19, 2012 5:18 PM

    All of you talking about how you like the replacement ref’s “letting them play football” are missing the bigger picture. Along with allowing more physical play, they are allowing punks like Finnigan to take cheap/dirty shots… including after the whistle blows (like putting his hands on Josh Morgan’s face and shoving him down). If the replacement ref’s don’t call those fouls…if they continue to allow coaches/players bully them…if they don’t grow a pair and take control of the games, it’s only a matter of time before someone gets injured.

  34. staffordsyear says: Sep 19, 2012 5:21 PM

    I agree…can we just keep these guys,this is how football should be played,its like i forgot that this is how its been played for decades!

  35. jamesmcv72 says: Sep 19, 2012 5:22 PM

    As much as I can’t stand this D-Bag, I do think the pendulum has swung too much in favor of the offense with the rules changes of the last 10 years. I’m not talking about the head-hunting crap, but the general physical nature of secondary play has been blunted.

    One side effect of scab refs, WRs & TEs getting a taste of football from the 70s/80s (ok, a very small taste).

    That being said, Larry Fitzgerald needs pick up Andre Johnson’s torch since Finnegan moved to the NFC West.

  36. sschmiggles says: Sep 19, 2012 5:24 PM

    I know there’s been some really bad calls, but I sort of agree with him. It’s been nice to see NFL teams actually play defense for a change.

  37. fmwarner says: Sep 19, 2012 5:24 PM

    You don’t have to be pro-union to see that these guys suck. This has ZERO to do with unions and EVERYTHING to do with the competence that is borne of experience.

    The “real” refs are better because they’ve been doing it for years, as opposed to doing it in high schools and pickup games at the park. That’s a fact, and your particular view on unions can’t change it.

  38. riftur says: Sep 19, 2012 5:26 PM

    I love these new refs. They have a few things to work on but I feel like I am watching 90’s football again! Its Great

  39. tdk24 says: Sep 19, 2012 5:26 PM

    About 75% or more of the rules are about interpretation. The locked out refs have been interpreting them awful for years. I could not agree more with Finnegan. The new refs have a few things to work on of course, but I like their interpretation of the passing game rules. This is a brand of football the NFL has been needing for a long long time. Now, if they can just fix the WR down field blocking (holding) on running plays, i would be a happy camper.

  40. natelan69 says: Sep 19, 2012 5:32 PM

    Finnegan’s endorsement is the last straw. Replacement refs must go.

  41. bengalskuta82 says: Sep 19, 2012 5:37 PM

    Yeah, well from a defensive standpoint, I think hes got a point.Also people or fans that miss that old style of football would tend to to agree with him.. I dont think the offensive guys are gonna agree with him.

    It isn’t just about concussions and unfortunate medical conditions years after players step away from football. Yes those are tragic, and yes players get an amazing opportunity to be a celebrity and make more money in a ten year career than most people make in a lifetime.

    But just because they have an unbelievable shot at fame, glory, and wealth doesn’t mean it’s okay for another player to take that away from them with an illegal cheap shot.

    By that logic, if I won the lottery, it would be fair for you to break into my house at night and steal my winning ticket.

  43. commonsensedude says: Sep 19, 2012 5:44 PM

    Plantiffs attorneys for the many upcoming injury lawsuits against the NFL – who will use the fact that the league has locked out the most experienced officials and compromised on player safety by having the replacements in – also think that the replacements are doing a great job.

  44. ahostiletakeover says: Sep 19, 2012 5:45 PM

    Cortland Finnegan: I like these refs, they think illegal contact means that you violated a restraining order and pass interference means someone cut you off on the freeway.

    ========================

    Tatum is a Hall of Fame player, and a collegiate one at Ohio State as well. One of the greatest players to ever play the game – of course he apologized, nimrod.

    Ashamed? Have you seen the blasts Butkus, Deacon Jones, Donnie Shell, and other players made? People always bring that up – those were all throwback players.

    You dont know what a goon is – Finnegan is average compared to Night Train Lane , Pat Fischer and some of the other old school players. Mike Curtis…Mean Joe Greene. They(d body slam players throw them out of bounds – they hit and hit hard for less money and definitely with less protection as now.

    Pull up your skirt, already.

  49. infectorman says: Sep 19, 2012 5:50 PM

    In last year’s NFL (and several years prior) when a QB was in doubt he’d chuck a jump-ball up to the go-route receiver and he’d get the PI call WAY too much IMHO.
    Now it’s far less a sure thing to draw that call, which brings us back to the days of yore, when men were men, receivers were tough and Florio had journalist stones…

    Sure, he likes the current enforcement climate, as long as it allows him to get away with illegal actions. It’ll be interesting to see whether he changes his tune the first time he finds himself looking for a “facemask” flag through the earhole of his helmet, and it isn’t there.

  54. randallflagg52 says: Sep 19, 2012 6:41 PM

    i understand the love of the oldsk00l style of defense as i grew up watching ronnie lott. and i loved that style of defense .. so i get it. i totally get it.

    but nowadays .. with fantasy football being as popular as it is .. and me being a participant in many fantasy football leagues .. i do NOT need oldsk00l defenses knocking my players out for weeks at a time. that will completely screw up my team and my chances of making the playoffs.

    i am still upset that dunta robinson knocked my desean jackson out a few weeks .. that severely jeopardized my season!

  57. farty5 says: Sep 19, 2012 6:51 PM

    This is the most convincing argument I’ve heard yet for getting the regular officials back

  58. macker1283 says: Sep 19, 2012 7:05 PM

    My god, I’m so sick of the revisionist history going on with this replacement ref situation. Were the regular refs much better at the administration of the game than the replacements? Absolutely. But to make like the regular refs never made mistakes, bad calls, game etc, is complete bull. I keep hearing this argument, “just wait until the replacements blow a game.” Regular refs blow games all the time. How many times has a game been decided on a suspect pass interference call? I remember once, in a game between the Patriots and Steelers in 2005 had a clock error in it that gave the Patriots an extra 52 seconds to drive down the field and win the game. Seriously, google Patriots Steelers Clock Error. One time the refs screwed up a coin flip in a Thanksgiving Day game. Anyone remember the Steelers Seahawks Superbowl? The list goes on and on. Heck, Ed Hocculi has a whole section on his wikipedia page focusing on his game blowing calls. I totally agree with people who want the old refs back because of lack of control or flow of the games. But the bad calls have been no different than the crappy calls the regular refs make.

  59. grandpoopah says: Sep 19, 2012 7:15 PM

    I have to say it is a refreshing change from last year when defenders were flagged for so much as sneezing at a receiver. Hopefully when the “real” refs return, they’ll follow suit and let the players play a little bit more.

    I’m sorry…

    But as a Dolphins fan, for whom it’s only been a year or three – since seeing the regular “good” ref’s absolutely outright ASSIGN a win to the Pittsburgh Steelers, and ASSIGN a loss to the Miami Dolphins – that neither team earned…

    I think your statement is BS.

    With all the (media predetermined narrative of the replacement ref’s affecting the game)… I’ve yet to see anything as egregious and season altering.

  61. dabears7190 says: Sep 19, 2012 7:44 PM

    The replacement officials have made their fair share of blunders, but that is to be expected from , well, replacement refs.

    All in all, I have liked the overall feel of the games. They have allowed a little more contact, but I think the players are also trying to get away with a little more contact as well.

    It will work itself out. I think the locked out refs might want to look for a more comfortable chair to watch Sunday football in. They might just need it.

  64. ytsejamer1 says: Sep 19, 2012 8:23 PM

    I thought things were going to be okay after week 1. I thought the replacement refs did a good enough job…other than a couple big gaffes in the SF/GB and SEA/ARI games.

    I will say that I like the fact that there are fewer flags for ticky-tack hands fighting or jostling for position down the field when the ball is being thrown to a receiver. Bill Polian is probably having kittens about it, but I like that…let the players play and the plays develop.

    That’s about as far as I’ll go…the games are longer, and the replacement refs are losing control of the games quicker and quicker. How can a ref for six weeks who is a substitute teacher during the week, tell Bill Belichick that he is wrong on something on the field. It’s not a good or fair position to be put in.

    I blame the owners and the league on this…not as much the inexperienced refs. They’re doing their best but are simply over their heads. I’m hoping this gets resolved sooner than later.

  66. jcampol says: Sep 19, 2012 8:38 PM

    All you people who are bashing these replacement refs for missing calls are acting like it doesn’t happen on a regular basis with the union refs. The only reason each and every missed call or hesitation on a call is being put under the microscope is because these guys aren’t the union. I cant’ count the amount of horrible, missed and down right stupid calls I’ve watched over the past few years, and now all the sudden its threatening the players livelihood? Give me a break.

  67. Matt says: Sep 19, 2012 8:45 PM

    If Al Davis were alive the Raiders would be rockin’ this year with the lack of defensive pass interference / defensive holding calls. It would be like the 70s all over again.

    Where is everybody getting this “let the players play” because of “less ticky tack calls are being made” information from? There have been more pass interference calls made through the first 2 weeks of football this season than the last 5 seasons. They are calling MORE penalties.

    The real issue isn’t the flags thrown. It’s the after the whistle stuff. This weekend in all the games I watched I saw:

    A player push an opposing coach.
    Two different players grab an official.
    At least 15 different scrums between entire teams and coaches.
    At least 6 after the whistle blatant cheap shots in front of an official that didn’t call it.

    The last one is what gets me. Missing a holding call or a ticky tack PI call is one thing. But when a player is taking a shot at another player after the whistle and getting away with it… just unsportsmanlike and dirty. I saw this happen multiple times in the 49ers, Eagles, Redskins, Broncos and Giants games. Enough is enough.

    Finnegan is a football player. Plain and Simple. He’s a little guy with a big mouth on the field, but he’s also a model citizen off the field, spends time with sick kids, gives money and time to charity..

    I don’t see 90% of NFL players spending the time he spends in the community every year.

    Hate his play, but don’t talk smack about the person.

    alonestartexan….

    John Wayne Gacy was a model citizen in the community too. Volunteered at hospitals, threw community block parties for the families, kids parties complete with a Pogo the Clown appearance…

    Just because a person is a good Samaritan in certain situations doesn’t mean they are above reprisal when they are an awful person in other situations…

    Pat Fischer, Andre Waters, Blaine Bishop, Courtland Finnegan…all are the same guy. Short and not the fastest DBs using EVERY edge/advantage possible to level playing field. Tremendous heart and more will than skill.

    Hate the game not the players or the replacement refs. He is right!
