Then we have been hosed may times in the past when Zorn has asked for a review and they say down by contact so it's not reviewable. The only thing they can review is the spot of the ball. To see if it was a first down or not.

I can't say I fully understood what happened on that play quite honestly. Seemed like they were saying he was fumbled before he was down by contact. Why not just say before he was down?

Re: Redskins vs. Saints Official Game Day Thread

yes think they changed that rule 2 yrs ago . although it seemed like his forarm was down as was that interception before half. his legs was on shockey when he was down. look at that run near the goal line from the saints where he thought he rolled into the endzone untouched, but on his way down he touched a redskins player so he was down at the half yard line

That FG def should've been made no doubt. However you don't let up 2 long FG passes and NO might have to kick field goals or just take longer to get their TD, which would have eaten up some clock, not giving them enough time to come back.

I just hope we don't tank it on purpose out here for draft position. We already know what positions we need, and moving up from where we'd shake out without tanking won't make much of a difference. Play with pride from here on out and I no longer care about the loss column.

The cleansing fire that will be our offseason is warming me already.
IIRC it was like 3 quick whistles.. normally at a whistle you stop play, so one person can still react and get the ball because of that

I believe that that's a flaw in the rules

I'm also not big on continuing the review after a TO is called, that's the same as having a challenge. Either give them a challenge or don't review it anymore once the TO is called.

Re: Redskins vs. Saints Official Game Day Thread

Did anyone else think that OT review should never have even happened?

The Saints' coach called a TO to "give the booth time to think about reviewing that play" according to the announcers. In OT, all reviews are done by the booth and can not be challenged by the request of the coaches. However, it seemed like that is EXACTLY what Payton was allowed to do...request a review.

We were about to run the next play and it wasn't initially going to be reviewed...until the Saints took a TO to encourage a second look.

Of course, they blew yet another game-changing review against us...but I do not think it should have even been reviewed. If a review is to occur, it should be decided by the booth or officials immediately after the play, not during a TO that was called to give them time to look at something they would not have otherwise reviewed.

I see two things wrong there:

1. The Saints and coach Payton used the review rules to their advantage in a way that was not fair to both teams. He basically was granted a challenge when in OT, rules state that the coaches do not get challenges.

2. The officials apparently had a bias or favored New Orleans not only in this instance, but on several major calls.

Re: Redskins vs. Saints Official Game Day Thread

Well in the long debate in the cowboys game we sorta had the same situation, we delayed the game so that the review would happen, and then we got the penalty overturned because the review was upheld.

However, I don't think the Saints should have been given their timeout back. It was not a challenge flag but instead they called the timeout. Then the review happened.

I think the NFL ought to clarify that if the next play doesn't occur in the normal play clock period then the option to review is or is not still available, instead of just saying the next snap.

That's good coaching by Sean Payton. Nothing wrong with what he did by calling time out there.

I agree, he used the rules to his team's advantage. If Zorn did it, I'd praise him, but the point remains that the rules were exploited unfairly...a loophole may need to be closed up.

Aside from that, the refs/review booth blew two obvious and HUGE calls against us...even if the review process had been done correctly, the wrong calls were still made. Seriously, was Stevie Wonder in the review booth?

you know how i know the refs made the right decision, because they didn't show one replay at fedex, they only show replays when they are in our favor and even then they only do it once. yesterday they didn't show either and when i watched the replays on sportcenter it looks like they did make the right call on sellars, but that rule needs to be amended, and it appeared that moore didn't ever hit the ground from any contact.

what if the calls would have been in our favor it would have been a different story

bottom line we had that game won but couldn't finish yet again and it leaves us all looking for some one to blame. it really sucked being there i thought i was witnessing one of the greatest redskins games at fedex in a while only to be let down like the past two weeks.

the real sad part is how not pissed off i was after losing since i kinda expected going in
