Another week in the NFL and another week of some very questionable calls. Everyone is frustrated by the replacement officials, but are some coaches going too far?Coaches and officials in any game have been known to go at it. What keeps both sides in check is that there is a mutual respect, but that’s not the case in the NFL right now. The coaches cannot see eye to eye with these replacement officials.

During the Sunday night game between the Patriots and Ravens,the refs could have quite possibly blown a game-winning call that gave the victory to the Ravens by one point, as time expired. Obviously, that sort of thing might make someone a bit angry, especially after a game were 24 total penalties were called.

New England head coach Bill Belichick ran up to a referee after the game and grabbed him, but the ref wouldn’t hear it. Would Belichick have done this in a normal situation? Broncos head coach John Fox found out that criticizing the officiating will result in a hit on his wallet after he blasted the zebras during last Monday night’s game. Are these coaches out of line?
