The replacement refs made a staggering number of pass interference calls in Week 1 -- 29 to be exact. But is it their fault, or are defensive backs and wide receivers trying to take advantage of their less-than-expert eyes?

Either way, it's a judgement call, and former Patriots wide receiver (and future Patriots Hall of Famer -- Saturday) Troy Brown was in studio to discuss.

"When you more than double the number of calls in Week 1 of this year than you did the previous two years, then you have to start throwing your hands in the air and start creating the NFL version of the flop. Start flopping around a little bit and flailing your arms in the air and get a few calls. That's what I'd be doing."

Lou Merloni was surprised by the number, because he felt the referees still missed a lot.

Brown, Gary Tanguay, and Merloni go into much more detail, so check out the video.
