Just a couple quick question.


1. Does anybody know why atl wasn't flag for either unsportsmanlike or delay of game on our first attempt at a hail mary pass(not like it mattered but really confused on why the play was blown dead)

2.On the cam fumble, why was the ball shift from 4th and inches to 4th and a yard.......even better question if he picked up the first down then fumbled shouldn't it have remained a first down,if the ball can't be advanced i can only assume that works the other way around

officiating was very biased of the home team but i expected that just wanted to know why these certain plays were called the way they were

You should just leave now... You just asked two very simple and basic questions about the game of football. This shows that you don't have an understanding for the game, and I could be wrong... But I don't think anybody's in the mood to "break it down for you"

lmao i actually play ball but thanks for your ignorance, if you don't wanna answer the question or find them stupid gtfo of the thread, cause clearly you didn't see when mike smith ran on the field and the play was blown dead when they were out of timeouts and you clearly didn't see the refs first measurement of that cam/fumble run or hear the confusion john lynch had on the play so do yourself a favor and quit trolling

I don't know what happened before the hailmary. Mike Smith was mad and shoved and assistant and they did seem to delay the play. They certainly didn't have any timeouts. Not sure what was going on and don't remember the commentators addressing anything other than the shove.

If you fumble backwards you lose progress, iirc. It's basically the same as going past first down and then doing a juke move putting you behind it. The commentators seemed to be spreading misinformation on the play and saying what you were implying.

Yea, I noticed the Mike Smith shoving his assistant. Heaven help him if that was Cam that had done that, or Rivera or some other leader. Expected a bit more to be made of a coach shoving an assistant on camera...

This is a great example of why this place has gone to hell.


Dude asks a football question in a football forum and gets this? Yeah someone needs to leave alright but its not the OP.
