If Favre Takes A Beating, Will The Refs Notice It?

QB Brett Favre's agent, Bus Cook, provided photos of Favre's black-and-blue ankle and hamstring after the NFC Championship game. The Saints went hard after his legs, and the refs admit they missed the call. The rule should have been fresh in their mind since the Brady Rule was just adopted last March. I think the NFL refs are the best officials for any major league sport, but this has been a lousy post-season (season?) for them. Meanwhile the league selected Scott Green to referee in the Super Bowl despite missing the helmet-to-helmet hit and the facemask against QB Aaron Rodgers on the last two plays of the playoff loss in Arizona.
