Titans coach Mike Munchak says the NFL has admitted that three officiating mistakes went against his team in Sunday’s loss to the Colts.
According to the Associated Press, the mistakes were an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on Shonn Greene that shouldn’t have been called, a 15-yard unneccessary roughness penalty on Moise Fokou that should have just been a five-yard illegal contact and a catch by tight end Delanie Walker that was ruled incomplete but should have been ruled complete.
“Mistakes are going to happen,” Munchak said. “It’s upsetting when you feel they could affect a game one way or another. But you just want consistency when things aren’t going your way. But yeah, I don’t think there’s usually that many. But you know there’s going to be some mistakes. And it’s more learning from them as a staff and me as a head coach. That’s a fine line you walk every Sunday. This game is getting very hard to play because of a lot of the ways that it’s being called.”
Everyone knows the officials can’t be perfect and sometimes they’re going to miss things. But it sure feels like the officials are making more high-profile mistakes recently. Add the Titans to the list of teams that have been on the wrong end of some of those mistakes.
