"It was a complete pass but was incomplete"

Recommended Posts



That was a bad call, but not as bad as the backwards pass call... by it's measure just about any ball batted by a lineman could be considered a lateral then. The original pass was moving forward (slightly, but still forward) before it was deflected. It should have just been incomplete with a pass-defensed tick for the lineman.

What is the rule on that?

pass was definitely moving forward before it was tipped

Who knows? It's probably buried on page 421 of the rulebook. Maybe one of our resident football scholars would know.

"In American football and Canadian football, a lateral pass or lateral (officially backward pass in American football and onside pass in Canadian football) occurs when the ball carrier throws the football to a teammate in a direction parallel to or away from the opponents' goal line. "

 

The problem with challenging these things is you need clear, undisputed evidence to overrule the call on the field.  Couple of things that stand out:

 

The play is out of shotgun, and the ref on the sideline is at the line of scrimmage.  Terrible angle to make the call.  The ref in the end zone did see it was a tipped ball but he's not making the call on if it's a lateral pass. 

 

In the screenshot, I circled the ball.  Maybe you will see something different but it seems impossible to tell for me from this angle.  In that case, the ruling on the field stands.

There were  plenty of chances to win that game 

blame the coaches and blame cam for not executing when needed 

that’s the fact 

big  time players  in make big time games make big plays 

no true down field passing

on the few times they tried they did have some completions   Newton standing there with no rolling in the picket didn’t help 

maybe they will improve this year and maybe they won’t 

if they beat the hapless Bucs, good for them  but the better teams, nope  outcoached  out played

the lateral and the fumble was bullshit, the lateral was tipped so early its impossible to say it was backward and the fumble was clearly a catch and fumble and recovery. if you said it was incomplete i would have understood that better than this.

We challenged that the pass was complete.  That was the challenge.  They ruled that it was complete.

If it was a completion, ok, shouldn't the Rams then have the ball at the spot the receiver was tackled at?  That didn't happen.  You can't rule that it was complete, and spot the ball the way they did.  There were a ludicrous number of inconsistencies with the way that played out.

This was just a mess.
