I have been upset with our challenges for years. I love everything about our staff, except for the obvious lack of someone upstairs only focused on that. Gabe Davis got 2 feet down and made a football move before having the ball knocked loose. It’s 100% worth a challenge. Why is this never talked about by the Bills media or McDermott? He has enough on his plate, we need someone upstairs. 
 

GO BILLS!

 

 

 

As long as you don't mind losing a TO as the likelihood of the call being over turned is low.  If you take your rose colored Bills fan glasses off you'd realize there isn't clear evidence to over turn the call.  If it had been called a catch to start with likely that too would not have been over turned.  IMO watching it live I didn't think it was a catch at all.

It's a tough decision, especially in the 2nd half.  As we all surely saw, the Bills could have really used one more time out, but the ones they did manage to save turned out to be vitally important in the final minutes.   Had they challenged the Davis TD and lost (which is probably more likely than not), they might not even have had the chance that they did to win the game at the end.

Well, I guess it’s not that easy, is it? 

 

I thought live it was a drop/knocked out. I thought on the replay it met the elements of a catch. Two hands, two feet, turned his body (football move), catch in the end zone. That’s a TD. BUT, a number of people I respect disagree.

 

Tossing that red challenge flag is not an easy decision.

on the first question, you are absolutely right. If you throw a red flag there on a play that cannot be challenged, it is supposed to be a flag. McDaniel threw it to challenge a non-call on an intentional grounding. Should have been a penalty. 
 

 

Or at least charged for a TO
