Default The play

Announcers were calling it "the most punitive penalty in NFL history".

That very play is what the national talking heads will be talking about all week. What a weird way for Justin Forsett to get into the limelight.

Yes, we benefited from it, but it was still an abomination that defied common sense.

Yeah, blame that hothead Schwartz. Same thing happened just last week to Fox. He should have known.

Pretty bad when your HC don't know the rules.

He had plenty of time to wait but he was so sure of the call he threw the flag early.

That TD is on him, not the Texans.

Default Re: The play

I have nothing bad to say about the Texans. They did everything they were supposed to on that play. Keep playing till you hear the whistle? Check. The refs blew the call which is fine. That's what the replay guy is supposed to take care of. The Lions head coach is the one who found a way (a way most of us probably didn't even know existed) to short-circuit the rather impressive net the NFL has strung up underneath their game to catch things like this.

Refs screwed up. Lions HC topped it. Sorry Lions, I admit it wasn't a TD but damn your HC is an idiot!

I think the refs should be commended for not blowing the whistle. Too often they blow the whistle and nothing can come of it. By not blowing it you allowed either a TD to happen or a challenge to overturn it. Schwartz not knowing this rule is ridiculous and nobody is to blame but him.

Yeah, it was a rule apparently, but it does seem silly to be given a 15 yard penalty, but not preserve the integrity of the game by reviewing the play, which would have most likely showed that Forsett was down.

I mean, in the end, the integrity of the game is what is important here, right?

Just ridiculous.

No the integrity of the head coach is important, and it couldn't have happened to a more deserving characterLESS coach than Schwartz.

Integrity of the game?????? Observe and obey the RULES of the game would be preserving the integrity of the game.

Hey, it was a boneheaded move that cost his own team. His team is as undisciplined as HE is.

I felt it rather fitting.

The good guys win again.

Why does the rule exist in the first place? I've been trying to think of a reason and can't.


Also good job by Forsett playing to the whistle!

Well, you're right! 100%. But tit for tat. It's not in keeping with the integrity of the game for Suh to kick Matt in the dick and then on another play drag...DRAG Matt down by the front of his shoulder pads long after he released the ball.

What are you going to do? Hopefully throw this rule out for next year. On the other hand, coaches have a responsibility to follow the rules,too, no matter the rule. Too bad, so sad on November 22nd, 2012.

Last year, Jim Harbaugh challenged a scoring play and was penalized. Jim Schwartz was seen laughing on the sidelines. After the game (a Niner win), Harbaugh gave Schwartz "the handshake" that led to a near brawl.

Who's laughing now, Jim?
