Am I the only one that thought it was beyond obvious that the Bucs FAILED to convert the two-point conversion try yesterday? His entire elbow (the carrying the BALL) hit the grass in front of the white chalk line of the endzone. Troy Aikman mentioned at the end that he thought he was stopped short but never made a big deal about it after the ref came back and upheld the call.

I think this was a horrible blown call that cost the Redskins a win. Horrible.

I also think that the ball did not break the plane BUT I also did not see a reply that showed this conclusively ...

I hadn't gotten to see any highlights yet this weekend, hopefully they'll show it on Monday Night Countdown, but frequently they don't replay badly missed calls, like Carr's "fumble" at Cincy.

I thought Alstott got it by about an inch. I was upset they went for 2, because I have a couple of Redskins on my FF team.

That said, I was happy for Chris Simms. He has been unjustly vilified by many of my Longhorn constituents. His stats were comparable to those of Applewhite, yet he has been cast as the jester to King Applewhite's court. Don't get me wrong, I liked them both. I'm just disappointed that people don't seem to remember Applewhite's horrible games (both K-State starts, the 2000 blowout loss to OU and the 1999 Big 12 Championship come to mind off the top of my head).

here is the point. EVERYONE in that stadium knew mike was getting the ball, and your defense couldnt stop him? suck it up and take the loss

That was a great game....I enjoyed the heck out of it. I'm with Chuckm on this one...not conclusive. TD Bucs.
Sums up what I think quite nicely. :)

Excellent game and ending. It appeared that Alstott got in, but the way the players were piled up on the goal line, it would have difficult to reverse the decision. IF the Redskins had not committed the senseless penalties, the outcome could have been quite different. I usually don't like the Bucs, but they were my second favorite team yesterday.:tv:

Re-play showed pretty clearly that his elbow was on the ground well befor the goal line. Not sure how the review missed it. Probably thought there wasn't enough evidence to overturn, but looked pretty solid to me and I don't even like the Skins.

But how about that chris sims he looks years ahead of some other Qb's in the league he has to have the prettiest deep ball in the league.

Remember the refs dont get super slow motion replays. They get real time and you honestly couldnt see it on regular speed. Right call.

The refs do get slow motion on the fully digital system they use.

Not conclusive.

The ref had no choice but to call it a TD, so it could be reviewed. It looked like a TD from his point of view.

Maybe I missed it but were does it say they get slow motion? As long as Ive been watching FB they have had to view it in real time.

From the 2nd part of the article describing the system:

The video operator can control the speed of the playback on this monitor by the turn of a dial. This is the monitor on which the replay assistant will view all replays. The video on this monitor is what the referee on the field will see.
