    It does work both ways though, but I get your frustration.

    Horrible call! Refs have been terrible this year but it's a every year thing.

    The penalty on Chubb was a bad call. The officials also made the same bad call earlier in the game against the Bears. Both teams benefited from bad calls, the Broncos happened to be on the wrong side of a bad call on the last drive.

    Again the point isnít whether calls evened out or not.

    Itís about being sick and tired of defenders no longer being allowed to go after a QB while he is still holding the football. Itís absurd and nauseating to watch.

    I donít think the call against Chubb is as bad as people are making it out to be.

    He was called for roughing the passer, not a late hit.

    He landed on top of Trubisky. Itís debatable as to whether or not he landed with his full weight on Trubisky, but he didnít get off quickly enough or make an effort to not land on Trubisky.

    Opening night 2016 with a rematch against the Panthers. Gano hooks it wide left, and Broncos win by 1. I hear ya, though.

    The roughing the TE call against whoever tackled fant early in the game was pretty gross too. The rules are bad for the game, and worse they are enforced incredibly inconsistently.

    I remember thinking I have no clue what happened but Iíll take the first down. Just as Iím sure bears fans said the same on the final drive.

    Bad calls with 30 seconds left in the game vs otherwise makes a huge difference

    I hear you, but you wanna know what I'm more sick of? I'm sick of our defense letting teams convert 4th and longs with the game on the line. We stop them on that and the game is over, regardless of the bad calls.

    For now, we're stuck with Elway as our GM. It is what it is.
    Yup... been saying it for a while now. KC is the elite of the AFC West and will continue to be so until/unless free agency or injury really start to affect. Brncos organization seems to be on life support right now. I'm not so sure that without Pat B around and active in decisions... that we're not gonna become one of the jokes of the league for years to come. The era of the NFL feels like it's in jeopardy... because of several factors. And the same may be said for the era of the Broncos. Might be a very long, dark winter before the team regains its glory days. Not trolling, not being negative... just looking at a true possibility.
