  1. This.
    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/09/23/alex-smiths-249-throw-streak-without-an-interception-ends-with-a-thud/

    Vikings running back Toby Gerhart was tackled, the ball came out, the Niners recovered, and the ruling on the field was that Gerhart did not fumble. San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh challenged the play, but he apparently didn’t have a time out to lose if the challenge failed.

    Which means he shouldn’t have been able to challenge.

    But challenge he did, and the ruling on the field was overturned, and the ball was given to the 49ers, and a time out went back on the clock.

  2. Anthony Fasano’s (MIA tight end) controversial catch today. He caught the ball but when he fell out of bounds the ball came loose… the play was challenged and they left it as a catch? has anyone seen the video? i haven’t heard anything about it since. I think it was actually the worst call of the year considering they reviewed it and still got it wrong. Not a call that can just be “swept under the rug” it was a blatant incomplete pass.

  3. jets/dolphins… there is no more 5 yard running into the kicker penalty. its either roughing or nothing. dont worry…. becky hochuli doesnt know that rule either.

  4. I won’t worry, because I do know the rule. Roughing the kicker is a 15-yard penalty. Running into the kicker is Rule 6-2-2:

    A player on the receiving team is not permitted to run into the kicker before he recovers his balance … Penalty: For running into the kicker: Loss of five yards.

    You must have confused with the incidental facemask (5 yd) penalty that was abolished. Only the 15-yard variety exists.

  5. Bengals/Redskins: there was an earlier ten-second runoff never enforced: at the 1:07 mark, 4th qtr, the referee asks for a proper runoff for a Washington injury, with no time-outs. He stands there for a while, and the timekeeper never changes the clock, and the referee just gives up and walks away. The later incidents at :07 should have never occurred.

  6. Bengals-Redskins – at 2:58, Green-Ellis fumbles, recovered by Morgan. Officials blow the play dead for no apparent reason.

  7. Lions at Titans. Titans punter knocked down during kick . No flag. Pass interference call on titans when DB simply touches receivers back with one Hand as they both go for ball. In readily bad officiating.
