4. Ike Taylor gets called for pass interference without physically contacting receiver
We write “physically” since there is no way to determine whether the referees assumed that Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor used some sort of mental ability to interfere with Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes on this play. Like they’ve done countless times so far, the replacement referees seem to ignore the more physical part of an ensuing play (safety Ryan Clark unloaded on Holmes, in what was a legal hit), in order to acknowledge the most ticky-tack of interactions. Except in this case, Taylor literally didn’t lay a finger on Holmes, which proves that according to the replacements refs, Taylor is a mutant wielding mind powers none of us can even fathom, and that he must be stopped.
