Re: Did we get lucky not to be called for PI?

How about the horseshit call on the D. Thomas touchdown, Or the pi that got them downfield for a score. I don't get this question. Is it like are we cheaters? should we have lost?

whew... I guess we can't whine about officiating for a while.
Jesus who do you root for the Cards? We have plenty to whine about, We got jerkedoff on a terrible pi call that led to the giants only td, And how about Aaron glenn throwing Moss down by his head. And it goes on and on and on.

Re: Did we get lucky not to be called for PI?

Honestly, that was a call that could have gone either way. I guess that makes us lucky in a sense but you will always be up and down on PI calls. We'll get our share of bad ones this year. For the most severe penalty in football, it is a shame that PI is so subjectively and so inconsistently called. Personally, I would prefer a 15 yard penalty like in college over a spot foul but that is a topic for another thread I suppose.

Re: Did we get lucky not to be called for PI?

I'm watching Inside the NFL right now, and Jacksonville's game winning drive against Indy on Sunday was kept alive for an illegal contact penalty on a Colts LB against a Jax receiver inside 5 yards that was pretty damn similar to what London did.

Looking at that, I'd say we got lucky.

Re: Did we get lucky not to be called for PI?

^^^ yeah after my post i got to thinking "are you allowed contact within 5 yards after the ball is thrown" (answer is no) but GM scud i am pretty sure an illegal contact penalty (by nature = contact before ball is thrown or else it would be PI) has to be past 5 yards from the line of scrimage. i follow the rules pretty closely but this year it has been hard to figure out whats been called and why because of the lack of consistency.

go skins!!
