So everyone on Thanksgiving saw the Jim Schwartz GOOF that cost the Texans a TD. If you didn'd see it what happened was the texans did a running play the RB gets hit in full speed doesnt look like he goes down no whistle is blown and he scores a TD. Replay showed his knee was clearly down Jim Schwartz threw his challenge flag but the play was a scoring play which is automatically reviewed. But the rule is if a challenge flag is thrown on a play thats automatically a challengable play (SCORING PLAY OR TURNOVER) The team that threw the flag gets a 15 yd. penalty and the play is no longer reviewable. So the Texans TD stood and the Lions got screwed. Now heres the loophole and I'll use the skins as an example. Santana Moss catches a TD but clearly doesnt get both feet in but the Refs call it a TD. If Shanny throws the red flag he gets a 15 yd penalty but the play wont be reviewable meaning the Moss TD will count. We will be penalized on the kickoff 15 yds. but who cares the TD still counts....THOUGHTS.
MODS If this need to be moved to Around the NFL please do.....THANKS
EDIT: It was confirmed on post #32 in this thread that there is no loophole. If Shanny were to throw the flag the Skins and only the Skins would get penalized for it.
