NFL Huddle: About those replacement refs

My recent call for restraint in ripping the NFL's replacement officials took a hit when the San Francisco 49ers' Jim Harbaugh all but mocked officials during a recent preseason game.

OK, so the replacements aren't exactly inspiring confidence these days. It would help, I contend, if they would sound a little more sure of themselves while announcing their calls. Another suggestion: limiting the time spent deliberating among themselves during the pre-announcement phase. The league could suffer from a confidence crisis more than an officiating crisis at the current rate.

This was among the subjects Dan Graziano, Ashley Fox and I discussed during the latest NFL Huddle episode, available in the video above. We also discussed coaches potentially on the hot seat (one NFC West mention), the quarterback situation in Seattle and T-shirts like the one visible in the video thumbnail.
