    we had a winnable challenge, Cook did not have both feet down and did not do any "football move", at worst Gary we lose challenge and timeout, BUT if we win (and I believe we would have) retain possesion with 5 minutes to go and a chance to win....I hope he has a really good explanation for tanking a winnable game.:brickwall

    Obvious fumble. He even had enough time to juke to the right.

    The good reason may be he wants a new QB and the more games we lose the better draft pick we get, so in theory we get the better QBs. Umm I don't know if it would have been a winable challenge though, it looked like he had time to make the cut back and take a step. I only watched it in regular speed. Stoped watching after that.

    did you watch the game at all, he was in arms of defender. I am not sure which game you were watching, but Cook made no move after catching the ball. or maybe you need to look at rules for incomplete pass

    Cook caught the ball in the air, came down on both fee, took a step to the right, then got hit.

    It was a fumble.

    But so was the play with the Giants' kicker...

    Er? Are you serious?

    He made a juke move after he caught it and was then tackled.

    Quinn & Brohm will be no better behind our line than Carr is.

    The fumble by Cook was obvious. He caught the ball, juked, and then lost the ball when he got hit.

    I would have been pissed if he would have challenged.

    It's amazing to me how people will view the same footage of a play, and see two totally different things. This is the reason why I am against instant replay.

    But what about Troy Smith?

    Seriously though the line has been playing better. Giving up only 1 sack that really wasn't caused by the D at all. It's just a matter of throwing the deep ball more. I wish Davis was here to have a great two back threat. One that's much better than the Lundy/Dayne one we had today.

    Actually, the first challenge was pretty stupid. We had the ball anyway and would have gained only a few yards. The play was blown dead so we couldn't have advanced it.

    Definite fumble. No question in my mind.

    It was Carr's fault. If he had thrown it to someone else we would have won the game.

    Do you honestly think that Quinn & Brohm would play better on our team than Carr next year?

    Unfortunately, the Cook fumble was the correct call, but can someone explain to me what happened on the Giants' kicker fumble? That looked like an obvious catch and then fumble after the hit! And the Mario penality looked like a bad call too. The announcers even said Manning was still on the field when Mario pushed him out. :brickwall Did anyone see anything different on those plays?

    No. They were blown calls.

    No. The fumble call on Cook was correct. It was clearly obvious.

    Read the whole thread.

    I said the Cook call was correct.

    The kicker fumble & the Mario roughing call were blown.

    Maybe it has something to do with the Giants having one of the top defenses in the league.

    I dont know. Thats just a guess.
