  1. As the former NFL head of officiating said on Fox, the ‘mistaken red flag’ rule called on the Lions’ Coach that negated an automatic review, which would have negated a Texans’ touchdown because the runner was clearly down…IS A TERRIBLE RULE! A 15-yard penalty is excessive enough for wrongly dropping a hankie in the heat of the moment; gifting the opponent a touchdown is beyond ridiculous!

  2. The real penalty isn’t the 15 yards as we saw, the real penalty is it takes away the review.
    Jim Schwartz is too emotional. This isn’t his first screw up from the sidelines. He would make an ok assistant coach somewhere but not a head coach.
    With all the number ones this guy has and they are already out of the playoffs this year, not to mention the salaries on this team and they are already out of the playoffs. You have to lay that on the coach.
    There’s a saying I always believed: ‘a team with a lot of penalties is a poorly coached team’.
    The Vikes have always been a team with very few penalties and mistakes. The Vikes like players from Stanford, Harvard, etc. Players that can think and learn the rules.
