The Luck Pick 6

177 posts in this topic

Please post where the league said the refs made the incorrect call. The league is saying that the replay assistant didn't send a certain view down to the ref. Every view showed in the stadium showed his knee being down. We see exactly what the ref is seeing. Every angle showed his knee as being down but the refs were rewinding and zooming in on arm movement and no the knee which tells me they were trying to figure out arm movement or whether the ball left his fingertips before the knee went down.

There is nothing here from the NFL that says the refs got the call wrong. This is nothing more than the someone saying that the refs didn't get a certain replay view sent to them.

The NFL has not issued anything saying the refs got the call wrong and why would they? They even issued a statement about the Packers/Seahawks game saying the refs got the call right but they missed a passer interference call.

What part of "According to the Indianapolis Star the NFL has informed the team that the call should have been reversed" wasn't sufficient?

Also I linked the exact article the other website is mentioning.

That link is a twitter feed from someone picking up something from the biased Indianapolis Star. The Indianpolis Star can write and spin whatever it wants. There is no official word from the NFL admitting anything was done wrong.

Somewhere on this site someone posted a link about how that part of the play was not part of the 60 sec allowed reviewing time. CBS messed up their broadcasting cameras or something and that camera view or something was not able to be seen by the refs so thats why it did not get overturned.

Good God man, give it up. You are wrong and that is all there is to it. Everybody has reported the call was wrong and the reason why the Packers/Seahawks game got more publicity is because it actually cost the Packers the game. The Colts still won despite the refs best effort to do otherwise.

Wow, just wow! Now the Star is resorting to lying and spin doctoring??? The Star is far from the only media outlet that reported the call was wrong. Not to mention every NFL analyst, Mike Pereira, and the officials that actually made the call. I've known people that were hardheaded and stubborn and hated being wrong, but you're taking this to whole new level. Nah though, you're right and every single other person is wrong, even in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

Every NFL analyst and Mike Pereira also said that the refs got the Packers/Seahawks call wrong but the NFL said they got the call right. There has been no NFL spokesperson or official as of yet who has said that they got the call wrong.

Well, I'm done with this topic, the Colts still won and you're still wrong. Nothing can ever change either one of those right now.

i heard on the radio that the nfl admitted it was a bad call, but that may have just been passed on mis-information

Pay attention to this quote from the second link most notable the bolded part.

"Unfortunately, we didn’t get this angle down to the referee,” Blandino said on NFL Network. “The replay official did not send it down to the referee. And that is a mistake, and that’s something that we have to make sure doesn’t happen again. You can see that the knee is down, you can see that Luck clearly has control of the football, but the referee never got a look at this angle because the replay official didn’t send it down to the field, and that’s something that we’re going to work on and we have been working on to make sure it doesn’t happen again.”

Here is a picture of it

There you can see his knee clearly down with the ball still in his hand. He was down. You can cling to whatever opinion you would like but it's becoming more and more clear no one is agreeing with you.

The bad call would never have taken place had Luck not thrown the ball in such a desperate disposition.....directly into the chest of a defender.

Yeah....it was a bad call but we were looking for a bailout and we didn't get one that time....tough cookies.

This is at least the third INT he's thrown while refusing to take the sack. Very typical rookie mistake.

All that said; It was a sack and when the knee is down, the play is dead, period.

La BINGO

grunch:  Regardless of the call Luck shouldn't have attempted that throw.  It was a rookie mistake.  You eat it in that situation - the risk doesn't outweigh the reward.  I hope Arians and Christiensen are making more efforts to reign him in.

    • Defensive expectation for Indy in 2016
      I guess Denver and Carolina had some pretty crappy offenses with a couple of crappy QBs.
    • Position Depth Comfort Level
      I love our QB, I think he stays healthy, love our SPTeams with Vinny/Pat, and like our WR core with TY/Moncrief/Dorsett. Everything else is still shaky. Hopefully our Draft will solidify the O.Line, I am high on Kelly. Our Defense as a whole is shaky period but we can still win 9 or 10 games if they play just Average if Andrew stays healthy.
    • Position Depth Comfort Level
      As far as depth goes and ONLY depth NOT starters   QB-D RB-C WR-D TE-C OL-D ILB-C CB-D OLB-D S-C P-A K-A   Our depth is not unlike a lot of teams, A lot of unproven players or players that really have shown they have no business seeing meaningful snaps
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      Its easy to say Clark did not go a round to high knowing we drafted him in the 3rd. For all you or I know however he very well could have went in the 4th however had the Colts not picked him up. Again however I would have waited till the 4th. I think he would have still been around in the 4th. If only drafting an O Lineman based on raw tools meant he was a good O Lineman but alas it don't and it doesn't make it a good idea to pick O Lineman based on raw tools either...Ill take intelligence and fundamentals in the 1st 3 rounds over raw tools (At least as raw as Clark). Now in the 4th or later Ill take O Lineman with raw tools but lacks the basic fundamentals (example lining up in a 3 point stance, Proper hand placement. All correctable things of course).   He wasn't who I would have drafted in the 3rd. I had him as a 4th rounder simply because he was/is so raw. He does have good raw tools to work with of course but O lineman have went later than him that have had BETTER raw tools than him. Khaled Holmes is just the first name that comes to mind who went in the 4th round. Hugh Thornton is another name. Christian Westerman went in the 5th and he has better raw tools that Clark. The truth is we don't know how many of the 32 draft boards made by NFL teams had him as a top 100 pick, Its entirely possible (even likely) that 1 team did not have him in their top 100.  Just because you did and some analysts did don't mean 32 NFL teams did   Do I dislike the pick? Not really. We could have had a better prospect than him however in the 3rd. Hell Ridgeway was a better prospect at another position that WE DID GET than Clark  was at his but fell do to conditioning and injury concerns, I had him as a 2nd rounder who had a shot to go in the 1st minus those concerns
    • Position Depth Comfort Level
      It speaks volumes that you only got down to position 5 before my initial reaction was 'oh my God'.   4 position groups where I'm generally happy - including Special Teams and a O-Line that was an apparent weak point last year and has only had a rookie center brought into the starting group. Eek!

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London 
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
