    This guy has no business reffing NFL games. Worst official ever.
    Had a terrible game Monday night as he usually does on national games.


    He was not even aware that The Bears had scored a TD as he was marking off
    a Roughing the Passer penalty. The other officials had to tell him

    No comment about Monday's game, but there is something really fishy about Boger and his relationship with the league office.

    When he was chosen to ref the Super Bowl a few years ago, some of the other officials implied (anonymously, so you don't know what axe they have to grind) that he has naked photos of someone on Park Ave., or something. Or if you read between the lines that for some reason the league office wants HIM in charge of the big games. Supposedly he was downgraded 8 times for bad calls that year, and all 8 were overturned on appeal. From what reports were saying, there was a perception that the league office plays favorites, and it doesn't treat the evaluations of all of the officials the same each week. Boger is supposedly a favorite.

    Something is odd. Half the time the guy does not even know how to
    turn on his mic.

    Inevitably when you see that he is doing a game you know that something
    will be screwed up.

    I'll need to hear Bill Simmons' take before passing judgment.

    A perception about playing favorites? Say it ain't so!

    The Cutler fumble and whistle was a back breaker for the Jets.

    Domestic violence is not the league's biggest problem. Its these horrible officials. Its deciding games.

    Speaking of favoritism, has Dean Blandino, NFL's director of officiating, gotten out of the Cowboy's party bus yet?
