Default Re: Replays

I can't seem to turn up any records online of the success rates of each team/coach with the coach's challenge but I remember hearing last year that Kubiak had one of the lowest success rates in challenging calls with replay.

I can't figure out why it's so damned difficult. I can tell you from my living room couch whether the call is going to be overturned or not.

Kubiak is constantly wasting timeouts throwing the red flag on plays that obviously won't be reversed.

That's something I think is easily fixed. Wish the Texans would figure it out.

Default Re: Replays

One more thing to add after listening to Gary's press conference today: We can't keep challenging plays based on how big a play it could wind up being if reversed. It has to be based on evidence. Just because it is a critical play doesn't mean we should use a challenge/burn a timeout if we have a minuscule percentage of it getting overturned. I believe this is one of the roots of Gary's problem with the red flag.

There is no doubt that Kevin Walter's play, if reversed, would have been a tremendous boost for us but that should not weigh so heavily in Gary's mind. Priority by a large margin needs to be "Do we have a good to great chance of getting this overturned," not "boy this would really be a huge swing if overturned." Gary consistently mentions this line of thinking when the media tries to get some insight into his method and I cringe every time.

I just get the feeling that we pay lip service to this aspect of the game which is really weird for a coach who is always stressing the little things we need to do and the attention to detail we need to maintain in order to, for instance, have success in the running game. This same focus needs to be paid to challenges.

Good grief, if that's true it's just asinine. So a call that's obviously not going to be overturned is challenged because if by some bizarre chance the replay official gets it wrong then that would mean a big gain in yardage or a swing in momentum?

The epic failure in that logic would certainly explain some of the stupid challenges. Geez.

Just my two cents.
There is a replay official in the booth who reviews all scoring plays as well as plays in the last two minutes. They should have that guy make all the replay decisions rather than one of the field officials.

Both replays they showed in the stadium looked like they could be overturned. The thing is no one really knows what angle the official looks at when he goes to the monitor. He could be looking at porn on the monitor for all we know.

The Walter call was very close , as I said before , only one of the several angles shownshowed his toe to be out of bounds. I dont think it was a bad challenge at all.


As for Tates fumble , I think that was more Kubiak trying to help Tate out by showing some confidence in him after two recent fumbles. He knew that call wasnt going to be overturned but being ahead he had the luxury of wasting a time out for the benifit of his player.

Default Re: Replays

Its funny, they have given the coaches part of the ref's responsibility. I hate that part of the game. There should be a two step process. One guy watching every game. He should determine if any play needs to be reviewed. If he flags it for review a random, off site official should review the play without prejudice for the call on the field. His call should be final.

Its not perfect but it does three things. First, I don't like the idea that a coach risks a timeout to find out if a ruling on the field on a close play was correct. That is asinine. Second, it has someone review the play without a prejudice for the outcome. He cannot be expected to know the call and if you have say 8 officials looking at plays, his number comes up. Nobody has to know who did it.

If things can be booth reviews in the last two minutes, I don't see why every play can't be reviewed in this fashion. I hate the comment "it slows the games down too much". I would rather a game run an extra 10 minutes and have the correct calls first of all, and second, if you are having that many calls overturned then maybe you need to add officials on the field?

Default Re: Replays

I completely disagree with taking away the challenges... We already have to trust the refs with calling a good game and all the terrible calls or "no calls" they make... It's nice having some way to have the crucial calls overturned when they screw it up... Instead of hoping they review everything THEY consider a "close" call. Just like on Sunday night Reid had made 2 challenges... both calls were overturned and he received a 3rd challenge because of it.

my point was that the replay, camera information he has available to him & his staff showed indisputable evidence.

Obviously he doesn't have the "angles" you had at home or what the referee looked at.

Default Re: Replays

There were 3 challenges I saw in the game last night. I didn't watch every play so I am not sure if there were more than this. The first half there were 2 and even the guys in the booth were saying they would be overturned. They didn't reverse them. One was the fumble by McCluster.

The 3 one was the fumble/incomplete pass by Cassel. It was overturned.

I still think the refs are protecting their crews by not reversing these calls.

They just need to have a team rule. If it means it wipes out a score, or if it takes us out of scoring range, or if it wipes out a turnover we forced...it should be considered.

Someone in the booth has those angles I have at home. Hell, people on the concourse in the club level have those angles. If we really don't have anyone looking at all the replay angles from the broadcast I can't even tell you how unacceptable that is.

Also, how can he be shown indisputable evidence when there is no indisputable evidence? Gary has never needed indisputable evidence to throw the flag and that, like I explained earlier, is his major flaw when it comes to challenges.

I'm just telling you.

Before he threw the flag, on both replays it looked close. He threw the flag.

Both times the booth came up with another angle (maybe they altered it) & it showed what appeared to be inconclusive evidence. Maybe the big screen is too far away for this kind of work, I don't know. But we were all saying, "there's no way he loses this one" both times.

Then when I got home & watched the game again, they showed completely different angles & shots, & didn't show the ones we saw at all.

There's definitely something funny going on, I don't know what exactly.

Again, both times it looked like there was indisputable evidence that Walter's toe tapped in-bounds (close, but in-bounds) & Tate's Knee on the ground with the ball firmly in his grips (that one didn't even look close).

Who knows what the Texans' replay guy gets to see or how he gets to select it but I will corroborate TK in this ... on the Walter catch the first clip shown in the stadium looked like his toe clearly touched in bounds. The flag was thrown and then they showed a replay from the opposite angle and it looked clearly out of bounds. I still think Tate should have been ruled down, but on both plays I think if the refs had ruled either way it would have been upheld on review.

Replay needs to stay. I would rather them take a 2nd look than just get a blatanly obvious call wrong.

Are we really worried about a 4 minute pause to get a call right when we have all the 5 minute commercial breaks we do?

TOUCHDOWN! Extra point. Commercial Break. Kickoff. Commercial Break. 4 plays. End of the 1st quarter. Commercial Break.

The "flow" that Gruden referred to being interrupted is just as interrupted by commercial breaks as anything.

I'm saying you do both. Don't tell the replay official anything. Let them watch it in slow motion and make the call. That way the replay official has no prejudice/politics/anything. Their only job is to look at the play and decide if it is a fumble or not (or whatever).

I would like an official in a booth in the stadium to be able to call for a replay too. I hate that coaches are given the responsibility of getting a call right for 56 minutes of the game and then we put it on the booth the other 4. Why? I think its because the booth is probably in a better position. I mean think about this for a second. One of the things that makes you successful as a coach is how well you are able to process and dispute whether or not to question the calls the refs make? Really? That is asinine. Why not make the coaches call off sides too? Why not give them random responsibilities? The officials and the rules of the game should be set up so that the coaches must worry as little as possible about the quality of the officiating in a game. I am fine with giving the team ONE challenge/half or something if they absolutely believe that they must challenge something but I don't like that the person who has the best ability to view every play (the replay official) can only make a change on 4 minutes of game film (ok and scores too. That equals what? another 5 or 6 plays a game? They need to be able to make a change on every play.
