I like it all except for the "normally overmatched" part

Some ref love from ESPN's Bill Simmons this week:
Most underrated performance: the officials from the Pats-Jets game
We're always complaining about refs, especially during the playoffs, but give them credit for not blowing a whistle as Pennington's backward pass was rolling around. That wasn't an easy call for a group that's normally overmatched.

I was waiting for somebody to notice, and somebody did. Thanks, Bill.

Bill makes me laugh a lot of the time. I especially love the fact that the Sports Gal beat him at making his NFL picks this year. Bill is not usually very gracious to officials, however. He knows a lot about the NBA and therefore considers himself an expert on their officials as well.

The Pats/Jets game was well-played and well-officiated. Yesterday's Pats/Chargers game nearly killed me, though! On to Indy!!
