Anquan Boldin paced the Ravens in catches (five) and yards (81), but the wide receiver spent more time after the teams 23-20 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday blasting officials for a pass interference assessed to him.
On the offenses first series of the second half, quarterback Joe Flacco appeared to hit Boldin for a 15-yard gain on third down-and-11 from the teams 38-yard line. But an official flagged Boldin for pushing a Steelers defender, negating the play.
Before the ensuing snap, Boldin moved early to earn a false start call and on third-and-26 from the Ravens 23, Flacco couldnt complete a long pass to wide receiver Jacoby Jones.
Asked about the pass interference call, Boldin smirked before venting about the officials.
They were making bad calls all night, he said. I know they dont want me to say it, but its what it was. You cant allow a guy to hold and then when a receiver breaks free, call a pass interference. You cant have it both ways. If youre going to allow us to play football, let us play football. Guys want to hold, I know how to get a guy off of me. But you cant just let the guy hold somebody and then complain about a guy throwing somebody off when hes trying to get out on a route. Source: Baltimore Sun Attached Thumbnails
