Friday on 2 Pros and Cup of Joe, Jonas Knox, Brady Quinn and LaVar Arrington address the inconsistencies that have become common-place in NFL officiating.

Brady Quinn: "Where do we draw the line. For starters, we have one less official than we do at the college level. Stop being cheap NFL owners. Bring on another official, have another set of eyes to converse and see what is a fast game. Or at a minimum, just give coaches the opportunity to challenge any call specifically throughout the course of a game. "
Jonas Knox: "Bingo."
Brady Quinn: "It doesn't have to be five challenges. It can be one each half. You can literally say, 'I want to go back and look at the play. I think you missed pass interference. I think you missed a hold.' ... There's nothing wrong with doing that and the NFL is so slow to move in making some of these changes that would in my opinion make the game better."
LaVar Arrington: "I think there needs to be more egregious fouls versus tick-tack, touchy-feely, questionable fouls. I'd rather a coach have to complain about letting them playing too physical than a referee just throwing their flag all the time."
