    Bradshaw's Fumble

    http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-playof...al-near-fumble

    Just saying, the whistle was blown after the fumble. He broke one tackle, and then as two people came in and one forcing the fumble (Bowman) the refs decided it was dead and blew the whistle after. This all happened over the course of about 1 second. No way was this a dead ball, he had just barely started to get pushed by Bowman and Brock and he fumbled.

    The refs blew the call when the Giants played the 49ers in the 02 WC round, but if that's a blown call then what's this? Just sayin, that's on the 17 yard line too with only just over 2:00 left.

    I'm sure this thread will go over big.

    Re: Bradshaw's Fumble

    it wasn't. Learn the rules. Every one agrees it was not a fumble. BTW do you have eyes? Did you not see the replay of how forward motion was stopped?

    To bad so sad. But glad to see you guys paid the refs off.

    Here is the rule in case you didn't know it.

    "Rule 7, Section 2 (b) of the NFL Rule Book (page 35) covers "dead balls." The rule states: "An official shall declare the ball dead and the down ended: (b) when a runner is held or otherwise restrained so that his forward progress ends." That was the immediate ruling yesterday, which is not subject to a replay review."

    The refs made the correct call according to the rule but I'll be the first to admit that I'm not exactly a fan of that rule personally.

    Does it surprise you that the whistle blew after forward progress had stopped because honestly I would be surprised if it hadn't.

    Re: Bradshaw's Fumble

    How much longer do you plan on complaining about this...on the GIANTS message boards?

    If we agree with you will it change the game? If we disagree with you does it make you feel better?

    Let it go man it's over, time to move on.

    Wow, now that you pointed it out I can clearly see that those dumb ol' refs blew it.

    Ouch, that really sucks for you.
