If you think this was actually a good call by the refs, then you don't know football. If you ate up the chit the NFL shoveled with their good-call-bad-rule spin, you are the perfect mindless customer in their eyes.
Nice try, but the ball was coming forward way more than the call Kubiak challenged and lost yesterday.
