    I didn't like Dwayne Harris being tackled 4 yards out of bounds. Somebody get Shanahan a tissue box.

    I can't say I've seen that ruling before on similar plays, but who knows.

    And those personal fouls along the sideline? Ugh. Those seemed so ticky-tack at the time.

    If I was a ref, no way I could make that call with a straight face. But, if it's going to happen to someone, why not Shanahan?

    one of the worst calls I have ever seen.

    had they called that on us I would have flipped and thrown my seat onto the field.

    officials were awful for the game last night. that crew was just awful.

    I wish they were here last week though, we would have got the horse collar on romo and probably gone down and won the game.

    but that call was bad and it was about as bad as it gets, but I cant complain about a break for our team after the crap that doesn't get called that happens to our qb week in and week out.

    I have never seen something like that called, but from the way the announcers described the rule, it seemed like technically it was the right call.

    Terrible call.

    The player is supposed to be standing around making no effort and then get pushed into the ball for the rule to actually apply.


    I'll take it though. The NFL owes us about 15 more of those.

    It's fair to say that the penalty was ticky-tack, but it's clear on the replay that the player was PUSHED back into the ball. There was a clear push and that's what they saw and that's what they called.

    The unfortunate (teehee) thing for the Redskins is that BW Webb was in such a bad place that if he had not been pushed, the ball would have likely STILL touched his back or leg(s). But, he was pushed backward, ball hits him, it is within the rules.

    Bingo it was the right call the if blocker is pushed into the ball it is not a touch and the ball is down at the spot. I saw it a couple years ago in a game and i was like that is lame and the announcers explained the rule. I guess it go to show that you can learn something new every day. I had been watching football for 30+ years and played and coached PW football and never heard of it.

    Oh well. It helps blank out the two stupid *** personal foul penalties on us for RGIII.

    If you want to talk about ticky tack that's about as ticky tack as penalties can get.

    Exactly. I mean it went in our favor but you have to be honest with yourself and know that what a ridiculous call and how mad it would have made us if it happened to us.

    I didn't like the call but technically I think it was correct. The reason I didn't really like it was because it looked to me that the ball would have hit him anyway. He had his back turned to the ball and could not have gotten out of the way of it anyway. It happens and Dallas has been on the other end of questionable calls so I'll get over it.

    That is the gray area of the rule doesn't say its a judgement call if the ref if thinks it will hit him anyway (does not say anything) only if he is blocked into the ball. I think we should all be happy and not worry about it its only the second time i have seen it in 30+ years watching football i think we wont see it again for a long time and odds are it wont be with our team involved.

    It was a turning point.

    Those coaches penalties were nonsense.


    Coach yells, "hey that is the wrong call"
    Ref - "yep, you right... But here is a penalty for you to negate our error"

    Did Shanahan complain when it happened ti our coach? No, Like Harbaugh doesnt care if your QB gets creamed, just dont smash his. Whiney babies dont consider other people.
