The big fumble return by Mario Williams was ruled an incomplete pass by the league during the week, meaning that Williams never should have had a TD against the Chiefs and that the officiating crew messed up.

That sucks and is business as usual. However, we were not winning that game anyway.

Too bad that the NFL doesn't allow the teams replaying from that incident.

Although I doubt the outcome would make any difference anyways.

I recalled seeing the thread, but can't seem to find it for the life of me. I know it wasn't me, becuase I knew for sure that it had to be an incomplete pass becuase of the fact that Kris Wilson didn't make a "football" move.

FYI, I just made a football-size move and then flushed it away.

my real problem wasnt with the refs.. . its how no one on our offense even seemed to attempt to run down that fat **** Mario. . seemed as though we stopped playing. .

i actually thought it was a fumble. .he caught it turned to make a football move was hit and like the big slow pusssy he is, he fumbled and just layed there

It's not the fact that they blew the call. It's that it was challenged and STILL BLOWN. What a ****ing joke.

the refs are supposed to let that play go because its a fumble. . u always lean to fumble if its close so it can play out instead of blowing the play dead. .but the ****king heartless Chiefs decided to let that fat **** run it all the way bnack

I clicked on the link, but couldn't find the information that the NFL said that the call was a blown call.

It's in the Texans/Panthers write up towards the bottom.



Other Games:

Houston at Carolina: Counting two wins at the end of last season, the Texans enter with their first ever three-game winning streak. The Panthers unleashed a pretty balanced offense in their opener, and Houston could be vulnerable deep with two new safeties in the lineup. Ex-Seahawk Michael Boulware will start. The Panthers moved DE Julius Peppers all over the place vs. the Rams, and Matt Schaub should expect to see more of the same. With Dan Morgan and Kris Jenkins healthy, the Panthers can experiment with Peppers, who is a true athletic freak. He even dropped into coverage last week against the Rams. The big fumble return by Mario Williams was ruled an incomplete pass by the league during the week, meaning that Williams never should have had a TD against the Chiefs and that the officiating crew messed up.

To me someone brought up the ultimate answer. If that "catch" was made in the endzone would it have been a TD. We all know that answer would be "NO".

If we had put up points on that drive we might have won this game. I think it's really lame that a football game can be affected like this. It was pretty obvious to me that it was an incompletion. If it were close I would give the zebra the benefit of the doubt... but it wasnt. What can you do?

KC should start cheating! :D

Well, maybe not for us, but I'm pretty sure you don't need to make a "football move" for a TD. You only need possession in the end zone. The rule isn't consistent.

Thats twice this year, I can think of that a Challenged call was not overturned... even though it whould have (Preseason vs Miami, and week one vs Houston...)

Remember when we had replay the first time and even with it they let Elway throw for a TD when he was 3 yards over the line of scrimage?

You know the NFL can spot some 18 yr old kid Taking videos in a crowd of 70 thousand but the NFL cant see if its a Fumble or not in slow motion from 70 thousand angles.

I mean WTF people??

Chief Faithful
09-16-2007, 01:53 PM
Fixed it again...

The Chiefs were down 10 and driving early in the 3rd. Instead, they are 17 down and go one dimensional on offense to catch up. That bad call made a big difference in the nature of the game.

But, 3 turnovers still make it hard to win on the road.

I think part of the problem with the replay is the slow motion. If they had replayed that at real speed, no way is that a complete pass.
