Ed Hochuli: Even the Best Blow It Sometimes!

Last Sunday during the Denver Broncos / San Diego Chargers game, veteran NFL official Ed Hochuli made a very bad call at a very crucial time in the game. Jay Cutler set up to pass, and the ball came out. Hochuli blew his whistle, killing the play, and ruled it an incomplete pass. The replay showed that the play should have been ruled a fumble, but the call could not be reversed because the whistle prohibited continuation of the play. Hochuli admitted he made the incorrect call, but the damage was done. The Broncos went on to score and won the game with a two-point conversion.
