Officials really blew it on the Justin Forsett touchdown.

No they didn't.
Schwartz not knowing the rule did.

Schwartz not knowing the rule doesn't change the fact that the officials blew the call on the field.

It also doesn't change the fact that the rule *****. PFT and 99% of fans agree with me. The league will be changing that rule, trust me.

Yeah the rule *****, but that's the way it goes.

Also, really got a good feeling about the Lions. They play the Colts in a couple of weeks and could help us out a lot with a win against them.

Yes it does. Schwartz not knowing the rule negates the use of instant replay.
He is an idiot. Plain and simple.

No where did I argue the rule should stand. But the REFS got it right. Schwartz didnt.
It was a close play so the refs let it go, which is the right thing to do. The Lions quit before the whistle and then Schwartz screwed up.
Not the refs fault.

Sorry, it was not close. His knee and elbow were firmly on the turf. The refs are blind and it's a stupid rule either way. What it all boils down to is that Forsett's knee and elbow were clearly on the turf and the refs missed it. The wrong team won today because of it.

why is the rule there? What is benefit or the disadvantage of throwing a red flag on a play that will be reviewed anyways ? What is the NFL trying to prevent or discourage with a rule like that?

Jim Nantz and Phil Simms said technically by throwing the flag he was delaying the game, which made it a penalty.

Forsett's whole body touched the ground.

I just heard they will revise that rule for next year.....a mandatory review will be just that...... mandatory.

Yup. In the NFL.com story on the call, they reported that a league source said they will get rid of the rule next year. Too late for the Lions though.

Some of you are so overreactionary. Jesus.
In live time it could easily have seemed as if his body never fully went down.
And FYI, for those of you who absolutely LOVE hyperbole apparently, a knee grazing and forearm touching is not the "whole body."

The refs did the right thing in letting anything close go. The whistle never blew. You don't stop playing until the whistle blows. The refs did nothing wrong. This is all on the Lions players and coaches.

Good job Forsett for playing until the whistle blows.

Apparently you love to understate things so that it fits your argument. You are probably the only person on the planet that thinks his knee "grazed" the turf. Maybe you should watch it again? Knee firmly on the turf and elbow clearly on the turf as well.

Even watching it in real time (as I did several times) it still seems like an easy call. The refs messed that part up. They got the stupid rule correct though.

Btw, it now looks like they'll possibly ditch the rule THIS year. If that doesn't tell you the Lions got f'd, I don't know what will.
