AP source: NFL moves Morelli crew off night game (The Associated Press) ( today ) Courtesy of
The NFL has moved referee Pete Morelli's crew off the upcoming Sunday night game between Indianapolis and Pittsburgh, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press. Instead, Morelli's crew will work an afternoon game between the Eagles and Patriots, the person said on condition of anonymity because the NFL does not publicly announce such changes. Earlier this season, side judge Rob Vernatchi from Morelli's crew was suspended for one game for not properly keeping track of the game clock in a Pittsburgh-San Diego game. Yahoo! Tue, Dec 01
NFL pulls Pete Morelli crew from Sunday night game after Week 12 errors (Shutdown Corner) ( today ) Courtesy of
The NFL once again has yanked officials from a key game after mistakes they made the week before. Head referee Pete Morelli and his crew originally had been assigned to Sunday night's Indianapolis Colts-Pittsburgh Steelers game but were pulled from that assignment following a poorly called game by them between the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers this past Sunday. One of the more egregiously bad calls in the game was a roughing the passer call against the 49ers' Qunton Dial on Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer on what looked to be a routine sack. Two other big errors in the game included a missed delay of game call that should have hurt the Cardinals, plus some real confusion in the first quarter over what down it was in the game. As reported by PFT , Morelli's crew will be assigned to a non-primetime game elsewhere on the Week 13 slate. What does this tell us?  Well, first of all the league is admitting yet again that some officials had a bad day at the office. But we also must take the timing of the game into consideration. What's significant is that the NBC game between the Colts and Steelers should earn some of the biggest ratings of the weekend and that the most heavily bet NFL games tend to happen at night. The league wants to sweep this bad-officiating issue under the rug as much as possible. A week ago, we made our list of the five worst calls of the NFL season — and could have had an addendum or two after Week 12, to be honest — and two of those five calls later resulted in the league yanking officials from future games. The side judge responsible for the clock issue in the Steelers-Chargers game was suspended, and the back judge from the Lions-Seahawks game (with a missed illegal batting call) was moved off Colts-New England Patriots the following week. Morelli's crew also was involved in the controversy-marred playoff game last year between the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys that featured a few dubious calls. Even if you believe that too much is being made of bad officiating this season, the fact that the league is taking direct action in response to controversial calls is pretty good evidence that things aren't being handled properly. - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.

NFL Power Rankings: Carolina Panthers finally climb to the top (Shutdown Corner) ( yesterday ) Courtesy of
The Carolina Panthers still have a perception problem. It's hard to imagine that in a little more than a month, we could have three teams finish an NFL regular season undefeated and untied: 1972 Miami Dolphins, 2007 New England Patriots and ... 2015 Carolina Panthers? It's possible. With just five games left, the Panthers' chase for perfection is close enough that we can start to talk about it seriously. And the remaining schedule isn't tough. They play at New Orleans, vs. Atlanta, at the Giants, at Atlanta and at home against Tampa Bay to finish it. The toughest team Carolina has left is the Falcons, and they haven't played well in almost two months. However, does this seem like a historically great team? Does Carolina even seem like a Super Bowl favorite this year? Be honest, would you pick the Panthers right now to win it all (people in the Carolinas aren't allowed to answer)? Again, this might just be a perception problem. Listen to Yahoo Sports' Grandstanding podcast for more: Grandstanding: A Yahoo Sports podcast Subscribe via iTunes or via RSS feed The Panthers weren't favored by oddsmakers last week against the Dallas Cowboys, who were 3-7. Nate Silver's FiveThirtyEight site declared the Panthers the worst 11-0 team ever , and even the Panthers' Twitter feed had to take notice. k https://t.co/9NdnO8qesz — Carolina Panthers (@Panthers) November 30, 2015 Being the worst 11-0 team ever is kind of like being the worst movie to ever win "Best Picture," in that it's still not a bad list to be on no matter what spot you occupy. But still, it's a strange story. Carolina is 11-0 and completely under-appreciated. The Panthers deserve to be the No. 1-ranked NFL team. They have won all 11 games (ask New England how tough that can be) and have won eight of them by at least a touchdown. They have won their last three games by an average of 21.3 points, and that's not supposed to happen in the NFL. It's a team with an MVP candidate quarterback in Cam Newton and a defense that doesn't have many holes and superstars like cornerback Josh Norman and linebacker Luke Kuechly. Whatever we thought about the Panthers before this season or over the first few weeks doesn't matter anymore. They're legit. The beauty of the NFL is there's no committee that decides which teams deserve to play for a championship. If the Panthers keep winning, their place in history will be undeniable. Perception won't matter much then. Here are Shutdown Corner's power rankings after Week 12: 32. Cleveland Browns (2-9, LW: 31) Let's be honest: Losing that game, ultimately, is better for the Browns. They'll likely get a better draft pick as a result. But wow, that's just brutal. 31. Tennessee Titans (2-9, LW: 29) The Titans have lost 11 straight home games. That's an amazing streak of futility. 30. San Francisco 49ers (3-8, Last week: 32) Yahoo! Mon, Nov 30
