Fumble on the 2

Did anyone else wonder why they were not challenging the fact that Hall was clearly on his a$$ when he coughed up the ball on the 2 yard line with just over 2 minutes to go before the half? The announcers never even mentioned it, and then when the challenge flag was finally thrown, it was to see if the helmet popped off first. Add what evr happened to another player cannot advance a fumble?

If you look at the replay, there is clearly a better chance of overturning the ruling Hall being down, than by his helmet being off. His butt was clearly on the ground when the ball came out - no doubt.

I thought that too. But I also thought thats what Payton was challenging.

You know, 30 years in the future someone is going to pick up a box score of this game and is going to be scratching their head.

hahahahaha...

Look at it this way. THIS is what it takes to beat us.

You have to score 3 TD's on DEFENSE.
You need the best QB in football to have a wife nearing labor.
You need us to have a boat load of injuries to major players, including both our starting RB's.
You need our FG kickers to flake out and miss kicks my daughter could make. .
You need Sean Payton to eat a bad breakfast, so his brain doesnt work properly, and he loses his sense of time.
You need the ball to bounce wildly away from us TWICE (a potential 14 point swing.) If the ball bounces correctly on the goal line, we're sitting here now talking about how awesome Greg W's defense is, and how we skunked their O on the way to win #4.
