    I don't like the route combination at all. So much real estate to work with in the middle of the field.

    That was a clear PI, hadn't seen that angle. There was no way Miles could make a play on that ball with that push off at the last second.

    That's what I was saying. Miles didn't run a great route, but there is no way those blaming him because he didn't make a play on the ball could have seen this angle.

    I don't know what I'm missing, but I don't see PI, and I still think this just looks like bad ball placement by Tony.

    I get the read and the decision to throw it to Miles there, but he sure didn't put him in a good position to make a play on that ball.

    I don't understand why there is not more separation between Miles and Dez.

    Austin allowed Webster to keep him away from the sideline. Knowing how notorious Romo is for slightly underthrowing deep balls, Austin should've stopped for a second to let Webster go by. OK pass. Sloppy,lazy route. I don't think it was PI. Just a hand on the back. Austin fell down twisting around to look for the ball.

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :)

    I don't see it either. Looks like Miles just got turned around and made a poor attempt on the ball. That whole play was just "off"

    Funny how so many people can look at the exact same thing, yet see it differently.

    Some people see obvious pass interference, others don't see it at all.

    Here's the Austin visible portion of the endzone view, to the point of the INT:

    That angle isn’t great. If you watch the video from Romo’s perspective (saw it somewhere) it clearly is defensive PI. It’s the Giants so they don’t call it.

    Zero pass interference there.

    That's the one int that I put on Romo that day. The punt/pas was no big deal, the JPP pick was freakish, and the one to dez was on Dez. But this one, I tned to put on Tony.

    The ball looked like it drifted and it also looked like Miles had to slow down for it.

    It was a jump ball, so I think Romo intended for Austin to have to slow down and outjump the defender for it. But I agree that Romo let the ball drift too far toward the sideline, forcing Austin to have to play through Webster to get it. Austin was unable to even try, though, because of Webster's contact, which is pretty clear on a big screen.

    I put this one on Romo, too, because if you are going to throw a jump ball, you need to throw it where the defender has to go through your receiver to have any shot at it and not vice versa. If he was too concerned about the safety to do that, then he shouldn't have thrown it.

    I thought Austin started outside on his break and then turned inside. You can see his position to the hash marks where he turns into the field from the sidelines a bit.

    By the letter of the rule, that IS pass interference. He puts 2 hands on the Austin and pushes off to create separation.


    It wasn't BLATANT, but PI nonetheless.
