Tony Dungy is one of the best people in the NFL Brotherhood and it takes a lot to kindle him. But enough is enough when it comes to the new Pass Interference Challenge rules of the NFL.
Like most people who see the NFL, Dungy was unhappy with the handling of pass interference calls (or non-calls) that were questioned in the fourth quarter of the 37-18 victory of the Cowboys over the Giants.
Here's the breakdown from a snippet of DallasNews.com.
The first moment occurred with the Giants, who were between 23 and 1
The following cowboys returned with the failed challenge to track Shurmur and the Giants when DeAndre Baker was called in for a questionable interference in the defensive against Amari Cooper. Repetitions showed that Baker had a finger on Cooper's biceps, but the ball was probably not catchable.
There is a sense in the league that officials personally take on the new challenge rule and do not discard some of the most obvious missed calls in defiance.

Please do us a favor and let coaches challenge pass interference calls no more. They cause teams to lose time, their acting department looks inappropriate and we fans feel stupid – as if we do not know the meaning of clear, obvious and significant!

Although Dungy pleads with the NFL, the officers should be brought to justice because they openly disregard the NFL procedure that is required of them, the best for their ability. But they would rather trigger hissing seizures.
There are many coaches who support the new rule that allows them to challenge pass interference calls (or non-calls) during the game. But it slows down the games. And when coaches lose challenges, they lose time-outs that affect the results of the games.
In a way, Dungy asks the NFL to save their coaches from themselves and to save the fans from these long failures. lengthy interruptions during the game.
He argues that it is the job of the officers to make those calls, while the challenge rule gives others a voice over each call, which aggravates the problem.
Dungy does not waste words When he speaks, people listen. And I tend to agree that pass interference challenges (or non-call challenges) can hinder a game.
Unless my team needs to challenge a call.
