This thread is really about the two challenges yesterday that weren't. The first being the sack of Geno Smith that was ruled an incomplete pass. It appeared to me that the ball was released after his knee touched down, and this would have resulted in about a ten yard loss. The second being a play in the third quarter where Mike Tolbert was ruled down by contact for a one-yard loss, but the replay clearly showed his knees didn't touch and he rambled for several positive yards.
Rivera hasn't had that much success with the challenge flag, and I wonder if he is keeping it in his pocket against his better judgement only to preserve precious time outs.
At the time of the two plays I mentioned above, the game was still up for grabs, and I honestly couldn't believe we didn't challenge one or both of those plays.
Did anyone else notice these and feel we should have challenged? I know the announcers even mentioned that it looked like Geno was down before releasing the ball, but there was no mention of the Tolbert play, where even the replay showed that his knees didn't touch.
Have you guys heard about this new "trend" sweeping the nation's big cities, giving the bored punks and thugs something to do for kicks? People have died or been seriously injured, and I would love to see some lead pipe justice served to some of this scumbags.
