I understand why the refs called the penalty on Burfict, but I don't get all the trash talking about him being a selfish thug. It's unfortunate really. He lost control but it didn't look like he made the hit on purpose. His momentum carried him through. Still, the refs have to call it. I get it.

Punishing the team for the Jones shove the way they did was BS however.

Jones is part of the team. This logic is absolutely moronic.

Still a defenseless receiver if he does not make a football move or have time to protect himself.

So how is one suppose to hit receiver in mid air? I've seen plenty of shoulder hits on receivers to the head not called.

I'm guessing since he launched himself that's what should have cause the flag but I don't think that's why it was thrown.

did you watch the whole game? he was out of control more than once. Karma came back to bite them there at the end. imagine an interception with less than 2 minutes, and then fumbling it back and ending the drive with 30 yards of penalties (half by a guy the coach should have set down already) that put the other team in FG range.

poetic justice if ever there was such a thing

Because this isn't Burfict's first time doing something like this. He's got a long history of it dating back to his days at Arizona State. It's the reason he went undrafted, that and his weed problem.

Jones has made a lot of dirty plays too. He deserved the call after jawing all game. You need to shut your flipping mouth and get back to the game when the game is dependant on smart football.

For Burfict, you gotta go out of your way to avoid a dirty hit in that situation. Brown clearly had no shot at that ball and Burfict had plenty of time to avoid hitting him in the head.

Brown was not in midair. Burfict took two steps after it was clear Brown didn't catch it. And he hit him in the head. That's a flag period
