Brees’ Costly Mistake / The Missed Calls

We all know there were several terrible calls & non-calls throughout the game. The Saints were penalized 7 times for 56 yards. However, the biggest blunder of it all that proved to be the worst was when Drew Brees saw the play clock run all the way down to zero, and signaled for a timeout. There should have been a delay of game, and the refs failed to notice Brees signaling for the timeout. The result? Brees scrambles around, and tosses a jump pass for Jimmy Graham that Manute Bol wouldn’t even have a chance at. Graham was injured on the play, and the Patriots took over to convert a field goal.

As for the other calls? I’m not touching that.
