Week 10…Bears – Lions game has been “flexed” from NOON to 3:15 at Soldier Field in Chicago…media reports

Reply

Shane Spencer November 1, 2011 at 6:46 pm

I hope Jeff Triplette has the DET @ CHI game…he has yet to officiate a game involving either Chicago or Detroit this season.

Reply

Mark November 3, 2011 at 7:34 pm

Walt Anderson will be in Philadelphia this week.

Reply

buzzard November 7, 2011 at 9:30 am

McAulay is in Atlanta this week

Reply

Joe Platania November 7, 2011 at 11:44 am

They’re happy in BAL about the win over PIT, but it’s time to turn the page… who’s eligible for BAL-SEA?

Reply

Preth November 7, 2011 at 12:09 pm

Blakeman, Leavy, Green, Anderson, Winter, Riveron, Morelli, Boger, Parry, and Hochuli.

Hochuli’s the longshot.

Reply

david November 7, 2011 at 12:53 pm

My guess is Ron Winter for the BAL- SEA game. I think they will hold out Hochuli or Morelli for the San Fran.game on Thanksgiving night

Reply

AC November 7, 2011 at 2:48 pm

Pencil in Winter. Can’t let the Ravens get too far ahead in the division.

Reply

Joe Platania November 7, 2011 at 3:03 pm

Winter did the Ravens’ fourth preseason game, but if I recall, that doesn’t really count, right?

Reply

Gerry November 7, 2011 at 4:59 pm

Would like to see Leavy get it because he has not worked at Seattle since 2003. He did Seattle at Pittsburgh game week 2.

Reply

Avi November 14, 2011 at 1:34 am

I think Leavy purposely isn’t assigned to games in Seattle after Super Bowl XL.

Reply

Brian Ravens Fan November 7, 2011 at 4:04 pm

Parry had a west coast game (DEN-OAK) this past weekend. Would think they might try to avoid giving him 2 long trips out west in a row

Reply

James November 7, 2011 at 1:13 pm

Eligibles and guesses for Oakland @ San Diego?

Reply

Nita November 7, 2011 at 3:09 pm

Ed Hochuli has the San Diego game on Thursday.

Reply

Gerry November 7, 2011 at 4:54 pm

This would be Hochuli’s first regular game in San Diego since 2006

Reply

James November 7, 2011 at 8:05 pm

And only his second SD game since Whistlegate in Denver correct?

Reply

Preth November 7, 2011 at 9:15 pm

Thanks, Nita.

Reply

Joe Platania November 8, 2011 at 12:40 am

Preth, glad to hear you’re helping out Mickey… best of luck!

Reply

SportingBecky November 10, 2011 at 3:48 pm

I heard that Umpire Rich Hall is with Blakeman this weekend.. is Umpire Garth Defelice(who lives in San Diego) on Ed Hochuli’s crew Thursday night NFLN(tonight)?

Reply

Jerry November 7, 2011 at 4:05 pm

I hope Winter has the Ravens-Seahawks game. Better that game as opposed to one that will be tougher to overcome his inevitable bad calls.

Reply

James November 7, 2011 at 7:57 pm

So true. Get him out of the way on a bad game.

Reply

Gerry November 7, 2011 at 4:47 pm

Mike Carey has yet to do a west coast game. The furthest west that he has worked is yesterday in Indianapolis

Reply

Gerry November 7, 2011 at 4:56 pm

After further review the furthest west that Carey has worked is Chicago (GB-CHI week 3) not indianapolis

Reply

Gerry November 7, 2011 at 5:02 pm

It seems like the NFL has done a better job this year in have refs work at sites that they have not worked at in a long time.

Reply

david November 7, 2011 at 7:08 pm

Walt Coleman has the call for Titans- Panthers.
Per/ Titans press release

Ron Winter sucks at life. just hoping he doesn’t get a Green Bay game this year.

Reply

Tony November 8, 2011 at 3:31 pm

I love Ron Winter. Haters leave.

Reply

Jeff November 9, 2011 at 12:00 pm

Tony, have you actually ever watched him ref a game? he is by far the worst official!

Reply

Tony November 9, 2011 at 4:52 pm

I’ve watched every official. Alberto Riveron is the worst by a mile!

Reply

Preth November 8, 2011 at 3:38 pm

In New York: Gene Steratore

Reply

bill November 9, 2011 at 12:45 am

Would they give him 2 SNF games in 3 weeks?

Reply

Preth November 9, 2011 at 1:16 am

It’s not unprecedented.

Reply

david November 9, 2011 at 7:53 pm

Big East basketball time again !!! Gene in New York !!!

Reply

Brian November 8, 2011 at 6:24 pm

Hold your laughter, Preth, but the flip card says Bill Leavy has Steelers at Bengals this week.

Reply

Preth November 8, 2011 at 9:36 pm

I tried. It didn’t go so well… :)

He is eligible this time, though. If you notice it change later in the week, let me know. Thanks!

Reply

Ryan November 8, 2011 at 9:48 pm

whose eligible for the chiefs game?

Reply

Preth November 8, 2011 at 9:53 pm

As of right now:

Green, Carey, Corrente, Winter, Morelli.

Reply

David November 9, 2011 at 3:39 pm

Well, remove Green and Morelli from the list.

Reply

matt November 8, 2011 at 10:05 pm

Whose working the Minnesota vs green bay game this mon night?

Reply

Preth November 8, 2011 at 10:10 pm

We might not know that one until Monday morning. Be patient.

Reply

Kenneth November 9, 2011 at 11:21 am

this is MNF? why have 75% of the SNF and MNF games been 1 or 2 dreadful teams? So tired of GB games too. We get it, they won the super bowl

Reply

Jeff November 9, 2011 at 12:01 pm

Kenneth, you sound a bit bitter. per NFL rules you are only allowed 3 games on NBC which GB has only played 2 and this is their first MNF game and only one.

Reply

Kenneth November 9, 2011 at 1:57 pm

not talking only prime time games, my regional games have given me GB 3 times in the first 9 weeks as well as their two SNF. Five times in 9 weeks, and 6 in 10 is a lot, especially considering I live no where near GB territory.

Reply

Avi November 14, 2011 at 1:39 am

One of those Sunday Night games was actually a Thursday Night-the opener-but I know what you meant.

david November 9, 2011 at 5:06 pm

On another note, How the hell did Jacksonville get 2 home MNF Games this year !!! ??? So next year should we expect to see Cincinnati on 2 times when they go back to their 4-12 season ??? Do you ever think the Ravens will ever have a HOME MNF GAME !!!

Reply

Preth November 9, 2011 at 5:31 pm

A MNF game is a MNF game. Does it really make a difference, whether or not it’s at home?

Reply

david November 9, 2011 at 7:41 pm

Yes it does matter if it’s home or not !!! When your team gets home at 5am and has a short week to prepare for the next game, i think that is a big deal !!! As a season ticket holder I would also like to attend it at the sametime !!! We don’t put black covers over our upper deck seats either to have sellouts !!!

Preth November 9, 2011 at 7:53 pm

Everybody who plays TNF has an even shorter week, regardless of whether they play it home or away.

david November 9, 2011 at 8:21 pm

That is so true about TNF games. In a couple of weeks ask the 49ers how they are going to be feeling after flying across country 3000 miles to play on Thanksgiving night. The NFL did them no favors this season !!! They have been to the east coast more than they have been on the west coast !!! The NFL couldn’t have had them play in Washington the Sunday before Thanksgiving and have them stay 40 miles away instead of crossing the country again before this game ? How fair is that ?

Gerry November 10, 2011 at 5:00 pm

The NFL should give the 3 Thanksgiving road teams their bye the sunday before Thanksgiving and give the fourth bye on that sunday to whomever.

Gerry November 10, 2011 at 5:02 pm

It would be interesting to see if the NFL gives Indy any primetime appearances next year assuming that Manning comes back. I bet they will.

Reply

Gerry November 10, 2011 at 5:11 pm

Adding on to my comment about thankgiving byes, why not give all six teams the week off before thanksgiving

david November 10, 2011 at 9:25 pm

I would think they would get at least a Thursday night game. I don’t think you could give the Thursday teams a bye the week before, but you can give them all home games. They are off 10 days after they play on Thursdays which amounts to an extra bye anyway.

Avi November 14, 2011 at 1:41 am

They’ve had 5 at home but not since ’07

Reply

Avi November 18, 2011 at 2:01 am

That comment was in response to david saying the Ravens haven’t had a MNF game. I hit reply under the comment but for some reason it’s further down on the page.

Avi November 18, 2011 at 2:01 am

Eh-I meant to say HOME MNF game as far as the Ravens.

Camps in Chicago November 8, 2011 at 10:09 pm

This is the 3rd time in 5 years that Pete Morelli will officiate the DET @ CHI game in the Windy City.

Reply

Joe Platania November 8, 2011 at 11:46 pm

Wow, it’s filling up quick this week! Based on all your comments, it’s down to Parry and Winter for Seattle… I’ll find out Wed. morning if no one else does before then…

Reply

Joe Platania November 9, 2011 at 10:34 am

Preth, Mickey and crew…
Another Baltimore drum roll, for, according to the team, Sunday’s ref in Seattle is … SCOTT GREEN! Don’t know why I went caps lock on that, guess I’m surprised it wasn’t Winter… you may begin unloading…. NOW!

Reply

Preth November 9, 2011 at 10:53 am

Well, I did say that of the eligible crews, only Hochuli was a longshot… :)

Thanks, Joe.

Reply

david November 9, 2011 at 10:54 am

Joe, I think we will see Winter next week !!!
Anderson
McAulay
Morelli

Reply

david November 9, 2011 at 10:56 am

Take Anderson off the list.

Reply

Russ November 9, 2011 at 11:18 am

Second time Green will work a Ravens game at an NFC West site this year. He also worked Ravens@Rams in week 3.

Reply

AC November 9, 2011 at 1:35 pm

Wow…clearly saving Winter for one of the Bengals games…or maybe the road prime time game in SD? He gets juiced up to screw the Ravens in road prime timers, so there’s my guess.

Reply

david November 9, 2011 at 2:18 pm

That is a very good guess !!!

SportingBecky November 9, 2011 at 1:07 pm

Clete Blakeman

Rams VS Browns

Jake November 13, 2011 at 5:43 pm

@Bill Please leave this off of this website. As for negative remarks to other people posting on this site. I hope Mickey responds and will not allow this to happen.

Reply

Preth November 13, 2011 at 6:01 pm

I have been actively moderating comments since I started assisting Mickey at the beginning of the week. I’m letting people express their opinions, including negatives, but only so long as they meet certain guidelines. Most importantly, that they stay civil, as EDOGG did this afternoon.

Reply

Josh November 9, 2011 at 2:41 pm

any guesses and/or refs eligible for giants@niners?

Reply

Kenneth November 9, 2011 at 4:42 pm

corrente, riveron and parry. i’m hoping parry, as i’ll get to see my 49ers back to back weeks for the first time ever (not counting when i go to bars, or primetime games)…

Reply

Preth November 9, 2011 at 5:35 pm

Triplette, too.

Reply

Kenneth November 9, 2011 at 6:23 pm

is there no rule for having the same team twice at home anymore? Triplette had Sea@SF week 1…

Reply

Preth November 9, 2011 at 7:37 pm

There was no such rule last season, at least.

Preth November 9, 2011 at 7:50 pm

In Kansas City: Ron Winter

Reply

James November 10, 2011 at 12:36 am

It’s a shame he can’t have Kansas City games every week.

Reply

Shane Spencer November 9, 2011 at 10:15 pm

So that leaves Mike Carey, Tony Corrente, John Parry, Alberto Riveron and Jeff Triplette.

Reply

James November 10, 2011 at 12:35 am

Triplette has been better this year. Winter has surpassed him as the worst referee in the NFL. Only a matter of time before Baltimore gets Wintered.

Reply

michael November 10, 2011 at 1:42 am

Who is the ref for the 49ers game?

Reply

Jack November 10, 2011 at 2:39 am

oh no. hochuli in san diego. guess i will watch the game from inside of a hole and hope he does not repeat “whistlegate”

Reply

FRANK November 10, 2011 at 3:45 am

BILL LEAVY BEST REF

Reply

Gerry November 10, 2011 at 5:12 pm

Does anyone know why all the teams play this week and then there is a bye the following week. I guess you can call this a bye for the bye week lol

Reply

Preth November 10, 2011 at 7:01 pm

It’s a unique scheduling situation that was caused by the lockout. A recent article on it:

Reply

Gerry November 10, 2011 at 7:30 pm

interesting article thanks Preth

Reply

Jeff November 11, 2011 at 12:24 pm

lol James. I love that it’s a verb now getting Wintered. he is definitely awful and I’m glad he hasn’t done a GB game since Buffalo last year. that’s over 27 consecutive weeks actually.

Reply

David November 11, 2011 at 1:33 pm

HOU@TB: You can scratch off Tony Corrente – he did the CHI/TB game in London in Week 8; NYG@SF: Scratch off Mike Carey – he did the SF/DET game in Week 6.

Reply

David November 11, 2011 at 1:40 pm

JAC@IND: Once again, Mike Carey can be ruled out of this game, since he did the ATL/IND game last week. Also scratch off Alberto Riveron and John Parry, since the former did the CIN/JAC game in Week 5, and the latter did the IND/CIN game the following week.

Reply

David November 11, 2011 at 1:44 pm

So, by the process of elimination, I guess this means Tony Corrente will be in Indianapolis for the Jaguars-Colts game.

Reply

Preth November 11, 2011 at 1:48 pm

Jeff Triplette is the other possibility.

Reply

John 2 November 11, 2011 at 7:01 pm

Here’s are the unofficial possibilities

JAX @ IND – Corrente or Triplette

HOU @ TB – Carey, Parry or Triplette

NYG @ SF – Corrente, Parry, Riveron or Triplette

MIN @ GB – Carey, Corrente, Parry or Riveron

OFF – Carey, Riveron or Triplette

Reply

Texans_00 November 13, 2011 at 12:31 am

1130pm CST No further news I guess on 3 remaining games I guess

Reply

Bronson November 11, 2011 at 11:48 pm

Its only guessing on my part but Riveron will not have the Monday Night game he worked just 2 weeks ago with Kc/SD So my idea is The Ref for Indy is gonna be Tripplete The Ref in Tb is gonna be Carey The Ref in Sf will be Parry and the Monday Night ref is Corrente which lead me to say Riveron has the Off week Folks this is only a GUESS i have NO NO NO facts :)

Reply

Gerry November 12, 2011 at 12:32 am

my prediction:
Houston@Tampa Bay – Triplette
Jacksonville @Indy – Corrente
Giants@ SF – Riveron
Minnesota@GB – Parry
Carey having off

Reply

Sandra November 13, 2011 at 10:55 am

New York Giants@San Francisco 49′ers will be Corrente

Rich Kalahiki November 13, 2011 at 1:40 pm

So Corrente looks goods for a Niners win ?

Reply

Preth November 13, 2011 at 4:44 pm

Thank you for this. If there’s any chance you could assist us with Corrente assignments going forward, we’d really appreciate it.

Reply

Avi November 13, 2011 at 2:39 am

My apologies if anyone’s commented on this already and I know it doesn’t have anything to do with referees but does anyone know why there are no teams having byes this week yet next week there are again?, and then they end. That’s never happened before. My only guess is that the league wanted everyone to play on Veterans Day weekend, or the night before.

Reply

Zebra Blog November 13, 2011 at 12:59 pm

The schedule was tweaked quite a bit so that a lockout extending into the season could allow the season to be rejiggered while staying competitively balanced. Teams that played in Week 3 all share the same bye week, so they would play their Week 3 game in the scheduled bye if needed. Probably the only way to work that, logistically, was to have a no-bye week when it wasn’t normally placed.

Reply

Avi November 13, 2011 at 1:12 pm

Oh I see that others have commented on it but thanks for answering that. Now it makes more sense.

John parry in Tampa so it leaves Mike Carey by default in Green Bay.

Reply

Preth November 13, 2011 at 1:43 pm

Al Riveron is eligible for the MIN-GB game. However, it should be safe to put Carey there – Riveron’s umpire is working with Walt Anderson, thus implying he has the off week.

Reply

Andrew November 13, 2011 at 1:23 pm

Is Carey in Tb??

Corrente in SF

Reply

EDOGG November 13, 2011 at 4:29 pm

Why does Terry McAulay always have to be the center of attention? I understand he is always rated as one of the better NFL referees each year; however, he doesn’t come into the spotlight until there is a huge call and he has to overturn it. Awful instant replay call by McAulay in overtime. No way that is indisputable evidence. Look up the definition. No way.

Reply

Preth November 13, 2011 at 4:35 pm

Mike Pereira, via his Twitter feed, agrees with the call. I did not see the play personally, but Pereira – the former VP of NFL officiating – knows his stuff.

Reply

James November 14, 2011 at 12:34 am

I was rooting for Atlanta and agreed with the call.
