Boger gets the call

First-year NFL referee Jerome Boger is the lead official assigned to the Seahawks-Bucs game Sunday, according to the official flip card found here. Boger has never worked a Seattle game. Boger was off last week. His crew has assessed 13.3 penalties per game (11.9 is league average). His instant-replay numbers are very much in line with league averages. And he is the only NFL official whose crews have assessed the same number of penalties against home and road teams. Not much controversial about his rulings, it appears.
