Officiating has been the talk of the NFL season thus far and for good reason. It was a referee who hasn't officiated above the junior college level who called what many believe to be a M.D. Jennings interception, a Golden Tate game-winning touchdown. And for that reason, Mike Sando's MVP Watch includes a man who hasn't stepped foot on the field this season -- locked-out referee (crew chief) Ed Hochuli. Does the loss of Hochuli's 20-plus years of NFL officiating experience rank more valuable than what Matt Ryan, Matt Schaub or Eli Manning has done in 2012?
