From the look on Mora's face after the incident it wouldn't surprise me if he incited Mathis.No way to prove it though.If he did it was a classless move on his part.The football gods will even it out,I truly believe that if these teams meet again,we'll see it happen.So much for the replay system.Between NFL Network and ESPN I must have seen 25 replays and still haven't seen Trotter throw a punch.Anyone else out there see him throw one?

I sure saw DeAngelo Hall throw a punch and slam his helmet on the field in a rage. Aren't they both grounds for ejection? I'm calling shenanigans on the whole incident. The NFL needs to be better than that.

Yes, Trotter knows now, thank god it wasn't the playoffs. Because if anyone out there doesn't think that the Falcons didn't do that on purpose, you are gravely mistaken. I'm not in the media, so I can make accusations like that. The Falcons team under Mora, from watching the first half plays extremely dirty football, and the referees let it happen. Shame on them. I mean did anyone see Owens get pushed back down after he made a good catch by a member of their defense? No calls were made, for any misconduct until the Eagles tapped Michael Vick on his first leg out of bounds. Home town refs. Don't worry, the playoffs will all be in Philly, so it won't be an issue again..
