Was the Music City Miracle lateral legal? No bias, please answer honestly

Recommended Posts

I bet you people insisting that the ball APPEARED to go forward failed those "which of these lines is longer" things as kids and call M.C. Escher pictures witchcraft.  Your eyes can easily be fooled, especially when you want to believe it.

Never knew this story...apparently in the offseason after this occurred they sent officials to every team to review rule changes and updates and one of the first clips they showed was this play and said it was an example of how they were good because they got the call right...Phillips said he and the other coaches were fuming and then they kicked them out of the facility.

Wychek's foot was on the 25. The ball was not released anywhere near the 25. Where the ball was released is the important part.

 

The only logical reason that people can think it was a forwards pass is if they simply don't know what the rule is.

Adam Schefter has said he had the best view of the play than anyone else from up in his spot in the press box at the game directly above where it happened and he said he immediately thought it was a forward pass and that nothing he has seen since then has changed his mind.

An irrational and emotional response to a subject they had biases about.  Just like most on this forum.

This wouldn't be a topic if the Special Teams just stayed in their damn lanes, but instead they looked like a bunch of elementary school kids chasing a soccer ball around

Nah just the truth.

 

Or are you one of these numnuts who believes all of these blatant pass interference non calls that get reviewed and not overturned aren't really PI?

Then he probably doesn't know the rule or just doesn't know what he saw. I doubt his view was any better than the one video that someone else posted where it's pretty much perfectly angled.

The Ball is thrown right over top the 25 yard line, and is caught on the 25 yard line. So unless it went forward, and wind blew it backwards, it was the most perpendicular of lateral passes. It may have been an inch forward, or an inch backwards. There is no indisputable evidence to over turn the call, so the Titan win. The Bills beat themselves on that play.

Honestly i hve no idea why they just didnt kick the ball out of bounds and let them take it at the 40...McNair couldnt throw it 60 yards.

The NFL was desperate to turn Nashville into an NFL town after it left Houston. The Titans team, while solid, received many favorable calls as the NFL was trying to establish a new fan base. It was 100% a forward lateral and we were a victim for the NFL influencing a game to fit their narrative and what they felt was good for business.

I still think the ‘Homerun Throwback’ was final payback for my making fun of the Houston Oilers fight song.  Oh, yeah...and ‘The Comeback’.  🤔

Maybe if Wade was smart he burns all the damn clock down. We kicked on first down!  I'm aware we had no timeouts, but come on. Qb sneaks and get to the line to spike if u have to. If u can get it to 3-5 seconds it may run out and you can just kick out of bounds.

 

Then we'd be talking about the refs calling PI on a hail Mary
