This deserves its own thread.

In the moment, I was conflicted-- I thought Ben had called a poor play and thrown into coverage AND I thought at first glance that the DB had interfered with Rogers. But the video evidence says otherwise. The play called left Rogers open, and when the throw left the hand, that sure looked like dozens of other TDs that 7 has thrown.

Guy was wide open when Ben let it go, and if the defender hadn't used a big grab of jersey to create leverage, that's a TD as long as Rogers doesn't drop it.

I was thinking the same...but hadn’t seen a replay to know for sure.
I knew ER had slipped or stumbled or was grabbed.
Sure as hell wasnt a bad play, a bad decision, or a bad throw.
Shit happens...in this particular game, a lot of shit happened. It sucks, but there it is...

And there it is. For the whole world to see. Ball in the air. Handful of jersey using the wr's right shoulder as leverage to hold the wr back and propel himself forward to get to the ball. Textbook. Pass. Interference.

Martavis caught his td with one damn hand while being mugged. No penalty called on that one either.

I saw the grab, leverage play by the CB live and lost my shit at the refs but also more than half expected no call on the pats..i meant its the pats so there you go. Nobody but nobody benefits more from replay reviews, ref calls or non calls than the pats.

Was still an ill-advised throw to the middle of the EZ with players around so if something went wrong, an interception might result.

You want a better pass to the middle of the EZ as an option, throw one low where Rogers slides to the ground as he's making it.

That way, if he misses it, the ball is likely batted down, not up.

So it was indeed an ill-advised throw.

Any pass there...ANY pass...has to be one that is either caught, or incomplete...period.

Can't see it because Photobucket no longer allows third-party hosting/viewing for free (fuckers).

If you make a tiny pic out of it at tiny pic.com, then we can all see it.

What's the only thing that could happen to prevent us from kicking a game-tying FG, forty-three? (Well- there's two things, but one was not likely to happen).

Do I have to have years and years as an actual quarterback to know that?
