Poor Devin Thomas

Poor Devin Thomas, he gets his first NFL touchdown overturned by a flagrant foul call that had nothing to do with the play. If i was him, i would have started to cry even though Heyer was just retaliating for the way #90 took down Portis two plays earlier.

I dont think that this touchdown should have been overturned and it should have been assessed on the kickoff ala Reggie Bush last week. Thoughts on the call????

Re: Poor Devin Thomas

I think it was a piss poor call, plain and simple.

Re: Poor Devin Thomas

Well it was a cheap shot no doubt, but it shouldnt have negated the touchdown..

Re: Poor Devin Thomas

I think we all agree it was a bad call, but luckily it didn't have any major influence on the game. Bad calls are bad calls and as soon as that flag is thrown there is really nothing we can do about it other than deal with it and move on. Let's just be glad we arn't SD who should have won the game over a blown call.

Re: Poor Devin Thomas

Bonehead play by Heyer...

Thomas will still get his TD next week when we light up Dallas.

Re: Poor Devin Thomas

Yes but why was it assessed on the play? Shouldnt it have been added to the kickoff. I just thought that it had no effect on the play and shouldnt have cancelled the 6 points. Did the refs call this wrong?

Re: Poor Devin Thomas

I think that it was a clear cheap shot by Heyer. Like 4thGen said if it had happened after the play then it would've been assessed on the kickoff, but unfortunately that's not the way it went down. I immediately felt bad for Thomas, he hasn't had a great start and I think if that touchdown was upheld his confidence would be skyhigh right now and he would be a lot happier person.

Re: Poor Devin Thomas

But if it happened during the play, why was it a foul? I thought you are allowed to block during a play, right? He shoved the guy in the chest didn't he?

Heyer's wallet will be a little light this week after the league takes action.

Re: Poor Devin Thomas

Speaking of Devin, you probaboly couldnt see it on TV, but there was one play (this was in the first half), where he was WIDE open in the endzone and Campbell missed it to dump the pass off to Cooley or Sellers...so he potentially could have had two yesterday.

Head shot, to the side of the head.

He was also wide open on a corner route when Campbell decided to sling it in between 3 defenders to ARE.

Not true because Reggie Bush did his little mocking thing before the TD and his was assed on the kick off. It is BS!

The defender pulled off of Thomas when the ball was in the air. Read Campbell's eyes.
