I've added a couple of twists to our usual weekly update on officiating. The chart below ranks every referee by highest overall replay reversal rate. The numbers along the left edge of the chart show how many times each referee has worked a Seahawks game this season. The big shock is that the league has not assigned Super Bowl XL referee Bill Leavy to a Seahawks game this season. We see from the chart that Larry Nemmers has already doubled up on Seattle (it's routine for teams to see a referee more than once in a season). If the league doesn't get around to assigning Leavy to one of the Seahawks' final three games, perhaps they'll send him to Qwest Field for a first-round playoff game. Note: The numbers in the column at far right show how many more penalties each referee's crew has assessed against road teams.
The chart at right shows our updated list of coach-initiated challenge records. I've switched it around to show the least-successful head coaches.
