After the Ravens PI the announcer said something along the lines of,"Putting your arm on his shoulder, even though he didn't move him, is asking for the refs to throw the flag. You just can't do that."
Then the PI against Denver he said,"I just don't see that. That shouldn't have been called. He put his arm on his shoulder, which isn't illegal, but that's the only contact I see."
I couldn't believe it.
The penalty aganst the Ravens was a defensive hold, the DB got his hand on the shoulder pads.
The non PI against the Donks, the DB put his hand on the back, and Deirdorf did say "back", not shoulder.
The fact is both calls were good calls.
