The idiot never even attempted to turn his head, so he deserved them both based on that alone. He was playing stupid football.That blown call doesn't bother me as bad as the 2 horrible PI calls on Josh Wilson. All 3 of their TD's was aided by BS calls from the refs imo.

You're both crazy!!!
-The 1st one he was well within the 5 yds to bump. There is absolutely no reason that flag should have been thrown at all
-The 2nd one the ball wasn't catchable #1, #2 he didn't contact Smith until after Smith pushed him first and he then Wilson put his hand out. The bit about him turning his head around was just some BS from the announcers trying to justify the call.
Steve Smith got both them calls because he complained and he's Steve Smith!
Well, i'm not sure the ball was in the air. If i remember correctly he was bumping before the ball was even thrown.( i would have to see it again) I know even Shanahan was raising hell about it telling the ref to look at the replay.If i remember correctly, the one you refer to as the first one, the ball was in the air... and the ball being in the air negates the 5 yard bump being legal. Once the ball is in the air, you cannot make any contact with the receiver.
Now if you had thrown Steve Smith's TD out as a bad NO-CALL i would agree with you because he pushed off and elevated...
On the second one, i do remember the ball being a long way from catchable, and that call i agree with you on, but none the less, he shouldnt have left it up to the official. If he gets his head around he see's that the ball isnt catchable, and he not longer engages Smith, and were not having this conversation today.
