the nfl apologizes for the refs gifting the saints a win.

Recommended Posts

while the redskins were pathetic already for even getting in the situation they did, the refs certainly never helped.

that intentional grounding call should never have been, according to the NFL.

oh well.

NFL will give an actual report, and it won't be from "sources". It was grounding. Miscommunication or not, he threw the ball in the area of no one from inside the pocket. Both receivers looked like they were blocking for a screen.

It was the right call, and didn't end regulation anyway lol. He was sacked on the next play. Give me a break with the "gift".

Nope

 There is no violation when the passer is not about to be tackled but the receiver simply fails to run the route the quarterback expects.

Saints had Ill gotten a free win because of Washington getting a false penalty thrown on them and no that call was not right either. The 2009 SB win was a sympathy win for Saints to.

no pressure at all. if there was pressure, then it would be intentional grounding.

but that was clearly a designed quick pass that was miscommunicated.
