ALLEN PARK – If you watch any NFL game, the number of available camera angles and slow-motion technology truly show how many calls are blown each week.
Ask many Detroit Lions fans and they’ll tell you nobody is on the wrong end of bad calls more than their team.
Tight end Eric Ebron dumped gas on that fire following Detroit’s 21-14 loss to the St. Louis Rams when he railed against the officials for not flagging what he believed to be pass interference in the closing minutes of the game.
“Man, we didn’t get our feet tangled. He ran up behind me,” Ebron said.
The Lions have been on the wrong side of some unquestionably bad calls this season.
Against the Rams, running back Theo Riddick was hit with a chop block, despite replays showing the defender was not engaged with another blocker when the running back went low.
“I wasn’t for the past thousands of years with this team,” Ebron said.
