why wasnt that a fumble?

I was under the impression the ruling on the field was an interception.

That's what the commentators said at first but then they corrected themselves.

You are correct it was ruled a fumble originally:

From ESPNs play by play:

2nd and 9 at CAR 36 (1:28) (Shotgun) D.Brees pass deep left to M.Colston to CAR 15 for 21 yards (R.Marshall). FUMBLES (R.Marshall), RECOVERED by CAR-R.Marshall at CAR 16. R.Marshall to CAR 16 for no gain (M.Colston).

The Replay Assistant challenged the fumble ruling, and the play was REVERSED

So yeah I see your point, but I am not suprised it was overturned. Tough call either way IMO.

Yeah, one of those bullshit, "I'm sorry" letters this week in the mail from the NFL Officials. Of course, it could be worse, ask the Chargers.... I'm glad they are beating the Broncos so it will not keep them from the playoffs........ hopefully.

I'm still pissed about this call. My roommate left the house because I was throwing such a fit. There was no way that was indisputable, mainly because I'm disputing it. Way to go refs, hand the Saints 7 points. God I wanna break more poo.

If you look at the replay, he catches it with 2 hands and pulls it in as he places his feet on the ground... then as he's getting tripped up and tackled, he moves to catch himself and cradles the ball in one arm against his body and puts his other arm out to brace his fall (to maybe stay up).

The Ball was then stripped as a defender stuck his hand in on the way by and popped the ball up. Marshall then caught the ball and the ball was secured by Marshall on the ground along with the WR's foot.

The Ball was caught, and stripped and recovered.

It was a blown call... But what do I know. I've been wrong before. LOL

I didn't get a clear look at the play at wwork but it looked like an obvious fumble to me.

I noticed the refs took a long time reviewing it what was their excuse?

They got it wrong and they also missed a clear helmet-to-helmet hit on Jake toward the end of the game.

They Hoculied it. I like that verb. Nice. Reminds me of Munson.

We were jobbed on that one...

And how many times after refs get a call wrong and give the ball back to the other team, that other team marches right down and scored....

Sickening
