Originally posted by shortcircuitI'm not surprised they didn't call the push off; even the regular refs generally let those "Hail Marys" play out.
Green Bay got jobbed by the referees.
They fail to call the push off on the receiver.
They failed to correctly call the interception.
What a bunch of boneheads. The NFL is a laughingstock now.

I think the OPI should have been called but I'm also not surprised it was not. I think the call in the endzone is the correct one based on the rules.
I can't find anything in the rules that show tate didn't have possesion of the ball since he clearly had one hand on it in the air and both hands as they come down to the ground. Thus, the rule on mutual p ...[text shortened]... rule change on this because even though it helped my team today it might kill them tomorrow.

And Item 5 of the same rule that states, "If a pass is caught simultaneously by two eligible opponents, and both players retain it, the ball belongs to the passers"
However, Item 5 also includes a sentence that would seem damning to the argument it was a touchdown and support the case for an interception: [b]"It is n ...[text shortened]... ultaneous possession.
Tate admitted as much. The refs blew the call.[/b]

skip to 1:15 for the best angle. They both clearly catch the ball.
And whats more, it appears that tate barely even touches the guy on the apparent "push off" but it is in slow mo so its hard to tell.

Originally posted by no1marauderNo you are a sheep that would agree with them whatever they say. If it was GB that made that play everybody would be touting it as a MNF miracle and a top play.
I've watched the play over and over again. Like 99.9% of commentators, I saw a clear interception and a blown call.
Originally posted by tomtom232You're full of crap. Jennings out-leaps Tate and has the ball in his hands well before Tate. Then he chests it.
You didn't even watch it. I can tell.
Edit: The dispute here is that everybody believes that jennings caught the ball before tate even touches it... if you watch you will see that they catch it at the same time... simple.
If this had been the other way around this play would be in the news just as much... as the #1 top play in week 3.
