It was a legal hit! He led with his shoulder.

Unfortunately not the rule.

Refs are going to call that every time bc they will hear from goodell if they don't. The "catch" was just a terrible call. Even Mike Perreira agreed.

Still illegal to lead with your shoulder into the head.

The problem with that rule is that the receiver ducked his head into TD's shoulder and there was little he could do about it.

That is the problem.

I get the feeling however that even if the refs had ruled it a no-catch, we still would have managed somehow to lose the damn game.

Honestly if he would've just wrap him up instead of going for the kill shot there may have been a different outcome. The clock would have continued and they would have got an additional 15 yards. Flame away if you like, but that has as much to do with today's lost as coaching and a missed FG.

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
