I totally agree. I can see that being ruled and called in several ways in which case I don't thing the Cards deserve to lose the game as much as the Packers deserved to win the game. So call it a wash and next time GB don't allow that to happen next time. Come out ready to play and not stink up the first quarter.

Re: The "Non Call"

LoL... Im not try'n to be an ass or nothing, but i have NO idea were some folks get the rules of football from...

To sum it all up for u all... YES, the ball was knocked loose before he grabbed his facemask, but unless the Cards had recovered & had complete control of the ball prior to it, it would've been 15yd penalty & Packer's ball.

The only way the Card's could've gotten the ball, like i said wuz if they had complete posession of it BEFORE the facemask was grabbed!!!

I can promise u all this much... Had there not been a fumble, the official would've called!!!

That sum's it up... Either way though... Ref's obviously did'nt see it & was focused more on the fumble than anything else. I would hate to be the Packer's & lose that way, but its to NO surprise that official's dictate a team winning or losing!!!

Re: The "Non Call"

I called Bob Papa and Randy Cross this morning on Sirius to discuss this - unfortunately my cell phone got cut off before I could finish my point.

There cannot be a roughing the passer penalty on a fumble (so I've read anyway on Schefter's twitter). However, the call SHOULD have been an interception which means RTP is in force.

I guarantee you if that ball had hit the ground before Dansby grabbed it and headed towards the end zone, it would have been overturned as an incomplete pass. Terrible job of officiating.

Re: The "Non Call"

I blame making a bunch of sissy rules up that are difficult to enforce, and determine game outcomes. This wouldn't be an issue 10-20 years ago.

Also notice how everytime a receiver misses a catch he looks for a flag? This is going to get worse than soccer or the NBA.

He got smacked,lost the ball, play football.

I could care less who one that game.

Rant done

With you there completely. I hate it, hate it, hate it. Keep your lip shut and get on with it. O/T - It makes "soccer" games stupid. And the NBA already allow drawing the foul so play to the flag / whistle.

Not true... if defensive play puts his hand in the face of the QB or blow to the head while he is in the pocket, I don't care what happens its 'roughing the passer'. If its an INT or fumble by the QB then that team/QB maintains possession 15 yards and a first down.

The ball didn't hit the ground so its really not up for debate weather it applies to the tuck rule or not.

By the letter of the rule the Ref judges the intent of the QB weather he is passing or tucking. If the Ref feels he is neither passing or tucking and the Cardnial player simply knocked the ball out of his hand then its a fumble. Its really another judgment call and based on my viewing of the play even in slow-mo I'd call it a fumble because the intent of thowing the ball isn't there at that moment. The QB's intent was to dodge being hit by evidence of the play.

What some people tend to forget this is a game that leaves a lot to be inturpret. Even some of the rules or left up for the refs judgement. some of the rules aren't so hard fast, black and white.
