    How in the heck did they blow that whistle?

    Antonio was off to the races.

    That would have been awesome to see him do his Ninja dance in the endzone.

    Antonio Smith played extremely well yesterday. I know most of you love his game & think he's doing enough. I don't. He needs to bring it like he did yesterday & he needs to finish.

    He was also robbed of a sack.

    Just like a QB has to beat the blitz before they "scare" defenses, A DL needs to finish before he can affect the QB with his hurries & hits. Or bat balls down, he has to create negative plays. A hurry that results in a 3rd & 15 conversion does not help us at all.

    I bet the ref who blew the whistle was thinking of the Forsett touchdown.

    the league reviews weekly performance & you can bet the Forsett down on contact play was a hot topic that probably influenced a quick whistle on Texans following week costing Ninja his highlight & Texans a six spot. inadvertent whistle cannot be overturned or challenged :overreact:

    I think we had one blown dead against Jaguars also, on the Daniel Manning sack fumble on Blaine Gabbert.

    It might have been a hot topic, but nothing should have changed...the league has stated that the refs are to let the play continue knowing that every turnover will be reviewed. Had this not gone for a TD, it still would have been reviewed. This tool decides to blow it dead when the ball carrier wasn't down and Smith is still upright....not even close to being down. The only problem with the call against Detroit was that thier coach got caught up in being an asshat and threw the red flag. The "system" would have worked. As blatent it was that Forsett was down, it would have been overturned. There was no reason to blow Smith's play down.

    Exactly. Delayed make-up call if I ever saw one.

    I almost expect the delayed makeup call to come on Monday night against one of the NFL's darlings .... Brady and the Pats. :gun:

    The announcer (I'm drawing a blank on his name) had the call of the week on smith's sack, after not getting the first one. "There you go, now you can pull that thing out and whip it around!" :fingergun:

    Yep, this is what I thought after the play.

    :ninja: We need a better Ninja emoticon in honor of Antonio.

    I think we can all agree on this.

    And I also like what corrosion said; it's better that it happens this game instead of next week.

    I just don't even see how you blow a whistle when nobody is on the ground. No excuse that bad of a call.

    Oh well, gift TD last week - Texans win, TD taken away - Texans still win. Suck it Detroit!

    I watched the lions game with some family that came down from up north. They were crushed when that Forsett play happened. I could tell they expected to lose after that.

    I love this team instead of getting down and blaming the refs, the defense went and got that ball back for the offense in the redzone. I had faith the whole time that it wouldn't matter in the end.

    Were they crushed on the blatant PI that wasn't called on the play before too? Just sucks that their cocky/hotheaded coach blew it for them. That definitly would have come back.
