Quinn stated that NFL officials have way too much control over the game.
“Some of these calls are starting to get a little crazy,” Quinn said, via ESPN. “These refs seem like they’re controlling the game a little too much. So, when a play is clean, and they’re throwing a flag for something that they thought they could change a game [with] just by one flag … let guys play ball.
“If this was a couple years ago, half of this stuff wouldn’t even be called. But now, they got so many of these stupid rules, they dang near in a ref’s hands [and] could change the game in any given moment.”
“I think they need to go check the refs they hire and not our coach.”
Against the Vikings, the Chicago Bears were hit with five personal fouls. Bears head coach Matt Nagy found himself being penalized after the team flagged Bears safety Deon Bush for a hit to Vikings tight end Tyler Conklin’s head on an incomplete pass.
“I saw what happened,” Nagy said. “Our guys are fighting their asses off to get off the field, and I saw what happened. So, I explained my opinion on it. And I don’t regret it.”
The Bears dropped to 4-10 on the year and were officially eliminated from playoff contention.
