Said it in his presser, "Hakeem usually gets the 1st down, I thought he was past the marker" and mentioned that by the playcall (which came in from Gilbride, obviously), everyone thought they had the first down, otherwise they would've run a short yardage play.

So... I'm not saying they're free of blame, but it does explain wtf happened.

Why coudn't they challenge that spot? B/c it was in the last 2 min of the half?</P>

He also said he though we got the first bc of the call from the sidelines....which means they thought we had the first as well.

that's right.

but they could have called a time out and asked for a measurement.
problem is no-one on the coaching staff noticed that 1st down was never indicated by the zebras, nor that yardage/down marker said 3 not 1.

We ran a quick play due thinking it was a first down and were in hurry up offense. That makes more sense. Had he known it was marked short, could of called timeout to give booth time to review it.
