    • For the fun of it, I’ll jump in and play too. With the games in the same order as you:

    • Jeff Triplette cant not have this game he done GreenBay and Seattle just last week 🙂

    • For fun here are my predictions

      PIT@TEN – Mike Carey
      OAK@ATL – Ron Winter
      CIN@CLE – Carl Cheffers
      STL@MIA – Jeff Triplette
      IND@NYJ – Walt Coleman

      NYG@SF – Ed Hochuli
      MIN@WAS – Gene Steratore
      GB@HOU – Clete Blakeman
      DEN@SD – Terry McAulay

      OFF – Tony Corrente, Scott Green, Pete Morelli

  2. and Scott Green done Az/Mia so cant be there either

  3. Joe Platania says

    Two votes for Riveron here in BAL and one for Coleman… for what it’s worth, Riveron did the AFC title game (BAL-NE) last year and Coleman did BAL-PIT in midseason and CLE-BAL in Wk 16… seen a lot of these two lately…

  4. Hochuli is in Tennessee thurs. evening.

  5. I guess we were all wrong about our predictions for DAL@BAL as the Referee is Mike Carey

    • Joe Platania says

      Yep, Mike, we can confirm that here. Nice work!… Carey had the NYJ-BAL Sunday-nighter last year and the BAL-KC playoff game in 2010. He also threw Suggs out of a 21-penalty loss in Detroit in 2005…

  6. Walt Coleman in Tampa

  7. since I usually start doing this around week 5/6 when it gets narrowed down to only a few officials eligible per game, I wasn’t going to list who can work what game, but I am bored at work, so here is who cannot work each game.

    Pitt-Tenn –> confirmed Hochuli
    Oak-Atl –> NOT PM, BL, EH, MC or WC
    Cin-Cle –> NOT GS, CB, EH, MC or WC
    StL-Mia –> NOT SG, JP, EH, MC or WC
    Indy-NYJ –> NOT TC, WA, SG, EH, MC or WC
    Det-Phil –> NOT CB, RW, TC, EH, MC or WC
    Dal-Balt –> confirmed Mike Carey
    KC-TB –> confirmed Walt Coleman
    NE-Sea –> NOT JP, TM, GS, EH, MC or WC
    Buf-AZ –> NOT JP, SG, JB, EH, MC or WC
    NYG-SF –> NOT CB, JB, RW, TC, EH, MC or WC
    Min-Was –> NOT CB, AR, JT, BL, EH, MC or WC
    GB-Hou –> NOT CC, JT, WA, SG, EH, MC or WC
    Den-SD –> NOT CC, BL, PM, GS, EH, MC or WC

    not likely to have the week off: JB, TM, AR
    won’t have week off: EH, WC, MC

    my picks:
    Pitt-Tenn: CONFIRMED ed hochuli
    Oak-Atl: Jerome Boger
    Cin-Cle: Carl Cheffers
    StL-Mia: Al Riveron
    Indy-NYJ: John Parry
    Det-Phil: Terry McAalay
    Dal-Balt: CONFIRMED mike carey
    KC-TB: CONFIRMED walt coleman
    NE-Sea: Tony Corrente
    Buf-AZ: Bill Leavy
    NYG-SF: Pete Morelli
    Min-Was: Scott Green
    GB-Hou: Ron Winter
    Den-SD: Clete Blakeman

    • also, as I was rereading this I noticed a geographical trend; by pure coincidence, I have nearly every white hat near his home (except for Winter and Cheffers)

      my picks:
      Pitt-Tenn: CONFIRMED ed hochuli
      Oak-Atl: Jerome Boger (from Atlanta)
      Cin-Cle: Carl Cheffers (from Cali)
      StL-Mia: Al Riveron (from Miami)
      Indy-NYJ: John Parry (from Ohio)
      Det-Phil: Terry McAalay (from Baltimore?)
      Dal-Balt: CONFIRMED mike carey
      KC-TB: CONFIRMED walt coleman
      NE-Sea: Tony Corrente (from Cali)
      Buf-AZ: Bill Leavy (from Cali)
      NYG-SF: Pete Morelli (from Cali)
      Min-Was: Scott Green (from Northern VA)
      GB-Hou: Ron Winter (from Michigan)
      Den-SD: Clete Blakeman (from Nebraska)

  8. When was the last time Pete Morelli worked a Bengals game? I see him doing that this season.

  9. Confirmed for Lions-Eagles: Bill Vinovich.



  10. Wow so great to see Bill Vinovich back. Great news. I wish he would take over fulltime for Carl Cheffers who in my opinion is the worse ref.

  11. Alberto Riveron for Bills-Cardinals.

    Bryon Boston is subbing also in Vinovich’s game at LJ for the retired Barnes. That means Walt Anderson’s crew likely has the week off.

  12. Is Bill Vinovich filling in for another ref? I apologize if I missed a prior thread

  13. NFL Officiating Schedule
    Atlanta == McAulay
    Cleveland= Morelli
    Miami= Steratore
    Phi= Vinovich
    Bal= Carey
    TB= Coleman
    Sea= Blakeman
    Ari= Riveron
    SF= Parry
    Was= Corrente
    Hou= Boger
    SD= Triplette

    Anderson, Cheffers, Winter (OFF)

  14. Tari Warren says

    How come Mike Carey never gets to be a ref for Redskins game in Washington?

  15. I can now officially confirm (according to his HL) that Walt Anderson is off this week. Sorry I didn’t get this on here sooner. Good job guys.

  16. Does anyone know if Mr Green is hurt again?

  17. Just wondering if Bill Leavy never works games at Seattle because of Super Bowl XL.

  18. If it was already poseted I apologize for the question – when was the last time that Bill Vinovich worked? Assuming it has been a while (at least a couple of years) and that he, like all of the others, did not get reps in pre-season, how rusty will he be?

    • Last worked on the field in the playoffs after the 2006 season. However, he has served as a Replay Assistant and Observer/Supervisor in the intervening years so it is not like he has been totally out of the game

  19. Shane Spencer says

    Mickey, those dates listed on this page should be in bold, OK?

  20. Hello there! This post couldn’t be written much better!
    Looking at this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He continually kept talking about this. I am going to forward this post to him.
    Fairly certain he’s going to have a very good read. I appreciate you for sharing!
