  1. On the Vick fumble, I thought I saw the LJ signal the ball dead while it was on the ground. Wouldn’t that have been an inadvertent whistle and no chance to review into Steelers ball?

  2. Seahawks just before half.
    Not sure why clock was reset but instead of resetting to 55 seconds as the clock was set for the previous play (2nd down?), the officials reset the NEXT play (3rd down?) to 59 seconds, handing New York an extra 4 seconds.
    The final play if the half? Three seconds to go, 41 yard FG – which should NOT have happened. At best the final play would have been from further away as Giants would have had to try earlier.
    This three points was a guft from the officials on a major mistake.

  3. It was ruled incomplete pass, but the clock ran down to 55 seconds. The reset was correctly to 59.

  4. My apologies. I thought it was two different plays. Thank you for your answer, and for the accuracy of the site.

  5. I really need some clarity on that Vick fumble.

    The official waves to stop the clock…can’t find the ball…looks down and sees a Steeler ON the ball and waves to keep the clock moving?

    No one who touched the ball was out of bounds.

    It was a fumble and a clear recovery.

    The ref did a poor job (IMHO) of explaining WHY it wasn’t overturned.

  6. STL @ ARI. 3Q 4:13. Kendricks is flagged for a blindside block. http://imgur.com/6tHl2Co Jefferson’s hips are facing Kendricks. I don’t see how one could say Kendricks “approaches the opponent from behind or from the side.” Just a missed call? Incorrect interpretation of the rule? or is the plain wording of the rule not how it is applied?

    “A player who receives a “blindside” block when the path of the offensive blocker is toward or parallel to his own end
    line, and he approaches the opponent from behind or from the side,”
