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.

    • That article was fascinating and inspiring. Thanks for sharing it and thanks to all the people involved in training service dogs.  I had no idea about any of this
    • I think the players being on the field for the anthem started in 2009. He could change that but it probably would not set well with the players and the media could jump "racist" in a heartbeat. This protest looks silly with only a couple players out of the whole team taking a knee.
    • The Indianapolis Colts today elevated tackle Jeremy Vujnovich to the 53-man roster from the practice squad.  Vujnovich, 6-5, 300 pounds, has spent the entire season on the Colts practice squad. He participated in Indianapolis’ 2016 offseason program and training camp before being waived during final cuts on September 3. Vujnovich spent the last two seasons on the Green Bay Packers practice squad. He originally signed with the Packers as an undrafted free agent on January 7, 2014.   Collegiately, Vujnovich started 28-of-29 career games at Louisiana College from 2009-2012. As a senior in 2012, he earned First Team American Southwest Conference honors, Second Team All-Louisiana recognition by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association and Second Team All-South Region accolades by D3football.com after starting 10 games at left tackle. In 2011, Vujnovich started nine games at left tackle and earned First Team ASC honors. As a sophomore in 2010, he earned All-ASC honorable mention honors after starting nine games at left tackle. Vujnovich saw action in one game as a true freshman in 2009. View the full article
    • Clearly the Jags have not lived up to the preseason hype and the Colts are not living up to their expectations. On paper the Jags aren't missing the players the Colts are but the Colts are showing a refusal to die and I see them coming out on top. Both teams need to get desperate to win with the now wounded duck Texans and this an AFC South game. It is impossible to ignore the potential of Lucks talent in a match up like this.
    • I became a Colts fan in 1984 when they came to Indy & took up residence in the Hoosier Dome later renamed The RCA Dome .   We had many up & down seasons eventually we had our first really good season that year Jim Harbaugh became our starting QB  we called him Captain Comeback & our Colts that season the Cardiac Colts it was a thrill ride till the very last play of the AFC Championship Game in 3 Rivers Stadium that year Indiana became a Football State for real it was awesome .   this is a link that you may enjoy ..   http://www.colts.com/news/article-1/COLTS-SEASON-IN-REVIEW--1995/03f1e9a8-74d7-48cd-9023-dce191257e68   Peyton Manning drafted in 1998 was seen as our next great hope & he did'nt disappoint but he did get off to a slow start .   Now with Andrew Luck I feel we are once again in great hands as in 98 our future looks bright ..
  • Welcome New Members

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
