Blandino, Pereira both say Zach Miller scored

Two former heads of the NFLís officiating department say Bears tight end Zach Miller was robbed of a touchdown on what turned out to be the last play of his season on Sunday.

Miller, who suffered a serious knee injury as he fell to the ground after catching a pass in the end zone, was initially ruled to have caught the pass. But on replay, V.P. of Officiating Al Riveron ruled that Miller hadnít maintained control of the ball as he went to the ground.

Riveronís predecessors Mike Pereira and Dean Blandino, who now work as FOX analysts, both said on their weekly online show that Riveron got it wrong.

ďAt some point the process of the catch ends, and it ends when he rolls over on the ground with control,Ē Blandino said. ďIt was ruled a catch on the field. I didnít see anything definitive to overturn it and quite frankly, if it had been ruled incomplete on the field, if it had been me in the command center, I would have reversed it to a catch.Ē

Is it me, or are these two much better at making obvious calls than they were when they were employed by the NFL?

Re: Blandino, Pereira both say Zach Miller scored

If it was it was. We're usually the ones getting screwed. We can't control officiating and there's been plenty of times where the Saints got the **** at the end of the stick.

I'd rather not have something like that contested. It doesn't change the outcome because the game is already over.

I thought it was a catch, but regardless they wouldn't have won. Instead of running the ball at the end of the game we would have opened the offense up, thus no Mark Ingram fumbles.

Can second guess everything and play the what if game all day. What I do know is the announcer for the game was slobbering on the bears jock strap, was embarrassing to listen to their bias.

I was at the Detroit game where we got royally screwed on the interception and partially on the fumble. Usually the call on the field stands, which is BS (and surprising in this case)

Re: Blandino, Pereira both say Zach Miller scored

I was laughing my a$$ off when Blandino stated it must have been when the TE let go of the ball after the play was over.

What a tool.

They clearly though he didn't have full control of the ball and that it hit the ground when the TE came down. Now, I'm not saying they were right, but that's how they saw it.

Re: Blandino, Pereira both say Zach Miller scored

Ever notice how these MFers come out of the woodwork when it works to the Saints favor???


Where was all the outcry in not one, but two missed calls last year against Denver???
