    when you call certain calls, you expect them on both sides if the ball.

    while we got some calls that were obvious, they neglected to call a lot of holding by the redskins offensive line.

    I can go on and about the lack of calls on the redskins sides yet they call our side tight as shit..

    the NFL refs just kill me.

    they tipped the game in the redskins favor today.

    I agree, how do they call offside onthe onside kick? How do theynot throw merriwether out of the game? How do they onot call the blatanthholdingand call back that resu,ting touchdown?

    but i blame our lack of performance more. Specifically mel tucker. Andthe injuries.

    refs were really bad, for us, we need to acknowledge that, maybe the diff. makers

    injuries hurt but we overcame them.. We didn't get any holding calls when there was clearly holding against a defender close by.

    With as terribly as the defense played the entire game and as poorly as the offense played the first half, you can't blame the refs. We should have won this game easily.

    That being said, the offsides on the onside kick was just a horrendous call. On the completion before the 2-min warning where Shea missed a sack, one of our lineman was getting absolutely mauled in plain sight, and nothing was thrown. Scumbag Donte Hall got away with holding a bunch of times, too. Still, this team sucks and there's no excuse for not beating them.

    499 yards is hard to overcome. The refs certainly altered the outcome of the game, but this team didn't deserve to win, either.

    The refs did play a part, but even then the Bears still had a chance to win.

    Sure, the refs sucked at times but that's the 'home field' advantage.

    We didn't lose this game because of the refs, they just didn't bail us out from doing it ourselves...
