Yes - we are playing San Diego this week. Thats what we are talking about.
Maybe the worst call ever in a football game. The first time ever I'd even heard of the "tuck rule."
Yes, that was a fumble.
The entire stadium thought the game was over at the time.
He means Romo will get his butt handed to him in his only Super Bowl appearance like Gannon.
Gannon really is a bad choice, really bad. His name brings up interceptions and fumbles aplenty in the big game.
Vinatieri is from South Dakota. Compared to the conditions he kicked in in high school and college, that night was just a brisk evening with a light misting of snow.
nors... your kid is logged in as you.
I was rooting for the Raiders all the way in that game. I had never heard of the "tuck rule" either and I thought they got robbed. But I heard a reading of the rule today and it clearly states that if the QB's arm starts forward, on his own accord and FOR ANY REASON the play shall be ruled an incomplete pass. His arm absolutely started forward before he was touched. Ergo, to my dismay, it was a proper call.
On an aside, Lincoln Kennedy said that what he thought was the most pivotal moment of that game was Gruden's refusal to go for it on 4th and inches when, if they made it, they could have just run out the clock.
Well, I'm not too into conpiracies. But isn't anyone, besides myself, just a little bit suspicious that the first time that they heard the "tuck rule" being called in an NFL game occurs in such a pivotal moment during a championship game? You would think that such a rule would be called many times. It just makes me wonder.
I am well aware that he is from South Dakota.
There was 3 inches of snow on the ground.
And he kicked it into a driving snowstorm. I was in the opposite end zone and you could not even see the football in the air. And not to mention the "thud" sound at contact.
