    NFL Fans and Former Players Erupt After Tom Brady Is Gifted a Game-Changing Call That’s Being Labelled ‘The Worst of the Season’

    Published on

    On Sunday at Raymond James Stadium, Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Atlanta Falcons thanks to what many NFL fans believed to be a shoddy decision.

    The play in question occurred late in the fourth quarter when Tampa Bay faced a 3rd-and-5 scenario with a 21-15 advantage.

    Grady Jarrett of the Atlanta defensive line sacked quarterback Tom Brady, preventing a fourth-down punt that would have given the Falcons a chance to win the game.

    Any hopes Atlanta had of recovering the ball were dashed, however, by the flutter of a flag.

    Brady, 45, was thrown by Jarrett, who was penalized for roughing the passer. NFL fans watching from home expressed their displeasure on Twitter.

    The call was referred to as either the “worst of the season” or the “worst roughing the passer call in NFL history,” according to some.

    Many cited a play in the Baltimore-Cincinnati game on Sunday night where Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was thrown in a manner remarkably similar to that of Brady but roughing was not penalized.

    Referee Jerome Boger was questioned following the Bucs-Falcons game about whether Brady was being protected or if there had been an overreaction to Miami’s Tua Tagovailoa’s recent concussion after being sacked in a similarly similar manner.

    “What I had was the defender grabbed the quarterback while he was still in the pocket, and unnecessarily throwing him to the ground,” Boger said, according to WXIA-TV in Atlanta. “That is what I was making my decision based upon.”

    If the call was related to Tagovailoa’s injury, Boger was questioned.

    “No, not necessarily,” he answered.

    Todd Bowles, the head coach of the Buccaneers, felt that the call was more of a response to the hit on Tagovailoa than it was a gift to Brady.

    “I saw that one being called. I saw it against Tua. I saw it in the London game this morning,” Bowles said. “I think they are starting to crack down on some of the things like slinging quarterbacks. Right now, the way they are calling it, I think a lot of people would have gotten that call.”

    “League safety is at an all-time high, as it should be,” he said. “Anything close, which we understand going into the ball game, they’re going to call it.” CONTINUE READING…
