People are really upset about the lack of holding calls in our favor. And some of the radio personalities are making it a point that this needs to be a key factor to watch in the playoffs.

So maybe we will finally get some calls in our favor for once come superbowl time.

Frunk,

Was it national radio or local? If it's national radio we may get attention, if it's local we are just going to be overlooked as bitter.

Sirius radio, Nfl morning drive, and the one after morning drive. I heard something about it on mike and mike also.

The show after morning drive they talked about it for around 10 minutes and said the refs need to make it a focal point.

Awesome news (re: national, not local, media)!!

This may very well be a factor of national radio hosts actually WATCHING the entire games (versus only the highlights). To anyone that watches the games and has a bit of football knowlege....

The guys on Sirius Radio are pretty knowledgeable unlike the ESPN talking heads.

The holding is getting so bad that my 9yr old daughter says to me during a game, "Dad they were holding James again."

Don't be so glum chum! They actually called ONE holding play in the AFCC...only when it was so obvious that a blind person could've called it - but they did call it.

Don't expect any changes.

This is the Superbowl. They want scoring. They don't want to see almost $150M in QBs taken off the field on stretchers.

To be honest, it works as much in our favor with our OL situation. Do you really believe our OL has gotten THAT much better in the last 3 weeks in not allowing Ben to be pummeled? They are not calling holding on either side. We are going to have to get sacks to get them in 2nd or 3rd and long.

That may be a valid point. I was hoping that they were improving. Maybe Larry Z told them that if the refs don't call what happens to Harrison then it must be OK to do! So, they included it in their practices!
