I hate Pass Interference in the NFL. It's such a subjective call in the first place, left to people who already miss the most obvious calls, and it can be for 40, 50, 60, 70 yards. Stupid, especially when officials are calling them the way they're calling them today in the Saints game. College does it better: 15 yards and a first down. 

That call against Haden in the end zone was SHAMEFUL, and it gave New Orleans an easy TD they didn't deserve. At the very least, they need to make P.I. review-able.
And I just watched Antonio Brown have to go for a high pass with one hand because the defender had hold of his other arm. No call.

WTF?

Saw the exact same thing.  If they make our DB's any more tentative, Brees is going to throw for 500 yards
Good lord, 19 was mugged.   Good they called it
Tied up 14-14
Our edge defense has been dubious. Sean Davis is a bust
Shit PI call. AGAIN.
14 points for New Orleans off bogus PI calls on Haden.
The PI in the end-zone was pathetic. yes, we'll get an apology frm the league on Wednesday. To add salt in the wound it was on 4th down.

here's how I see it (correct me if I'm wrong):

1.) In order for P.I. the ball has to be catch-able. That ball was not catch-able. I don't think it was.

2.) Joe Haden - You have to know it's 4th down and not even make a play on the ball. Not your fault, not P.I., but alittle football smarts would have possibly prevented the horrible call.

I just watched the game, the last P.I. on Haden sure look like the ball was tipped at the D.L. Won't matter now but it sure looked tipped.
