And this is the hit..? Really? Not even helmet to helmet.. when can you hit a receiver then?! when he's celebrating in the endzone? Thats a GREAT football play.. thats what you get teached to do as a defensive player, to time it just right.. even with the NFL's ridicolous rules, that play is legal.. he hit him in the chest for crying out loud.. not the back.. not the side.. not the head or helmet.. not the knees.. in the chest with his shoulder.. that has to be a noncall
i dont understand that ****ing rule.. if ogletree catches it then it's a legal hit no? if he catches it and gets the ball dislodged from the hit it's also legal.. but because the guy doesn't catch it.. the defender is supposed to stop in mid air in half a second and not hit him?!
Quit your belly-aching and move on. If you're going to complain about a call, complain about the non-fumble. It was the most questionable one and had probably the biggest impact.
Do you not realize how often this play is called a personal foul? He went for the big hit and got his forearm around the helmet. It's not reviewable and the refs made a judgment call. It resulted in a 15 yard penalty... putting the ball on the 39 from the 24. Not as big of a deal as the PI two plays later.
The worst part was how the cowbpoys dragged out those fluffy penalties by laying on the floor for 5 minutes.
Im not worried if dallas needs all that help to defeat the browns they will crumble for the rest of the schedule.
it's funny though cause the ref that made the call for 'forearm to the helmet' was the one directly behind the browns player.. so in other words there's no way he could have seen where the forearm hit because the browns player was blocking him.. in other words he just saw a big hit and ogletree crying like a *****, and threw the flag about 2-3 seconds after the hit.. the referee closest to the action that actually saw the play in front of him didn't call ****..
I do agree the NFL needs to change the defenseless receiver rule a little though. But that was a hard fought game by both teams and the cowboys were the better team in the end
dude look at the video! their helmets never hit.. ever?! am i not seeing a different video or what, because in the one i posted about that specific play, their helmets NEVER touch..
anyways, it's stupid to go on about it.. they got the win handed to them and the nfl got what it wants.. to keep the cowboys on top and to make the nfc east more interesting even if the cowboys don't deserve the record they have..
