Porter believed he caused Texans quarterback Matt Schaub to fumble the ball. Hochuli ruled that it was an incomplete pass, and the booth didn’t call for a review of the play.

“I’m looking for an apology or something on Tuesday or Wednesday on NFL Network,” Porter said, “but it will be too late by then. The game’s over. That point in time, I know for sure that I had both his arms when the ball came out. I mean, it wasn’t by accident.”

Loser of the Sore variety. :)

He's probably telling the truth, but I don't care.

I'm pretty sure it was clearly a forward pass. Can't find a video yet...but there was no objections from even the announcers. Sounds like he's just crying.

Huh? What? When?

He did school Brown today though.

It doesn't matter now. Game over.

His arm was moving forward. Clearly an incomplete pass.

Slightly O/T: The "tuck" by Romo screams for the need to change that rule. That was clearly a fumble, no matter what the rules say!

Sorry about not being clear. It was near the end of the game when Porter hit Schaub's hand as he was throwing. Porter is demnading an apology from the league, stating that it was most definitely a fumble.

They replayed it on the big screen at Reliant..........the call was undeniably correct.

If the rule says "Forward motion" thats what Schaub had when the ball popped loose. It almost looked like he got the pass off too, but it hit Chris Meyers in the butt.

Uh, Joey, if anyone deserves an apology from the league it's the Texans. The ref on the sideline made some atrocious calls (i.e. the spot on that third down play) against Houston, but fortunately Hochuli came in to overrule him with the correct call.

Unfortunately for Joey:

1) It was an incomplete pass by rule
2) He is gunna get fined for opening his trap

couldn't believe the refs didn't rule Romo's gaffe a fumble. it's justice that they ended up losing anyways.

I could have still used that 2 point loss in fantasy football :( (Opponent has Romo)

The call was good, the rule is horse****.

Like someone said previously, the tuck rule is an absolute abomination. You can basically have no outlet receiver in mind when you're about to get sacked but just make sure your arm is moving forward when you get hit and it's incomplete every time. No worries about intentional grounding, just "tuck it". Terrible.

I'm also demanding an apolofy from the league; for letting a loud mouth bafoon like Joey Porter to get any amount of air time. They should let him play but then duct tape him mouth as soon as the game ends.

Hey Joey - Weren't saying much last year when you were getting owned every week huh?

That's true, but you don't see it too often in most cases. I don't think it's prone to abuse just due to the infrequency of occurrence.

Yeah probably should have reviewed it...but it was a obvious call.

No one will talk about the call this week because it wasn't controversial at all though.
