Gresh & Zo kicked things off with talks about the NFL playing extra games now on Thursday every week, but the bigger topic is the performances of the replacement officials. These replacement refs are just missing calls and even making ridiculous ones that don’t make sense.

In Monday night’s matchup between the Broncos and Falcons the officials missed a call on Denver’s first touchdown, ruling that Demaryius Thomas was pushed out of bounds. Upon review it was later ruled a touchdown as he did get both feet down.

This is just one of the many bad calls that helped the game drag on for nearly 3½ hours.

It’s about time to get the real refs back, don’t you think?
