    I dunno... After looking at it again, I would make the case that Brown never completely tucked the ball away and was fumbling with it up until the time he got hit.

    I was at the game and saw the replay on the big screen.

    Definitely a fumble and we lucked out on that play. Miami got screwed.

    Houston, again.
    IMO, one obvious bad call that went our way. Haven't been many that have. Seems like a boatload have went the other way though.

    Nope. I'm looking thru my Battle Red sunglasses and I can say, without hesitation or bias:homer:
    that it was definitely an incomplete pass. :fib

    Oh well.

    There'll be plenty of times for Chris Brown to actually fumble the ball in a less controversial way than this latest episode. Just give him a snap or two on Sunday.

    That was just the NFL being nice to us since they figured we weren't going to do anything to screw up their playoff plans. This week - Tom Brady- New England playing for a higher seed - the NFL will be back and ready to throw (flags).

    Bad call. Chris Brown seemed to have possesion IMO. But thats the rule. The ref has to make the call as he sees it on the field. Too bad for the Dolphins incomplete passes are not reviewable, except in three specific cases, and this was not one of them.

    How is that any different from the other times Chris Brown has run the ball this year?

    Not reviewable just like the phantom pass interferance call that advanced the colts 43 yards earlier this year.

    I would've liked an explanation as to why we were called for defensive offsides when the man clearly got back before the ball was snapped?

    He also said that Miami should have been gotten a 15 yard personal foul penalty (instead of 10) for a leg whip instead of tripping.

    This is one reason that I generally don't criticize and/or blame officiating. It tends to even out in the end.
