The TEN: 1/21/2019

(“The TEN” is not a top ten but ten items worth being included in “The TEN”) LATE EDITION

1. Super Bowl LIII is set: Los Angeles Rams vs. New England Patriots.

2. New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton said he contacted the league office and they confirmed that the refs missed a pass interference penalty in the fourth quarter of the 26-23 overtime loss to the Rams Sunday.

3. For the Patriots, it’s their third consecutive Super Bowl appearance and fifth in eight years.

4. The NFL will discuss in the off season whether to make pass interference penalties reviewable in the wake of the no-call that proved to be key in the NFC Championship game Sunday.

5. The Houston Rockets have agreed to trade Carmelo Anthony and cash to the Chicago Bulls. However Anthony is expected to be sent to another team by the trade deadline.

6. Rams HC Sean McVay, 32, will be the youngest coach in Super Bowl history. The previous youngest was Mike Tomlin of Pittsburgh who was 36 when he led the Steelers to the championship in 2009.

7. Kansas City linebacker Dee Ford took the blame for lining up offside on a play late in the fourth quarter that nullified an interception of Tom Brady and may have cost the Chiefs a berth in the Super Bowl.

8. Former Cathedral quarterback/current Mater Dei QB Bryce Young received a scholarship offer from UCLA. Young is verbally committed to USC.

9. Former Houston Rockets star center Hakeem Olajuwon turns 56 today.

10. “If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

    How about NO pass interference on any plays? Let them battle for the ball, prison style. This will make up for the loss of the kick off.

    Why are plays in the last 2 minutes reviewed and not the first two minutes. Why are touchdowns and receptions subject to review but not holding and PI? Does a missed call in the first quarter mean less than in the 4th? If yes then just start the game in the last 2 minutes. That way you can look at everything and then still get it wrong. BTW Whittier was robbed in the La Serna game but nobody was crying for a do over.

    #4 Since there was no PI called how do you review it? Are you going to review every play just in case there might have been a penalty that the on fields refs missed? Are you going to let the coaches throw the red flag when THEY think there was a penalty? I feel for New Orleans but there is a human factor to the game that creates moments like these.

    A Rams win in this Super Bowl will carry no definitive sense of supremacy, all because the league has no remedy for what happened in the conference championship. What might be done? How about playing the game over this Sunday, when there’s nothing else going on? I don’t want to hear New Orleans cry forever over their misfortune.
