Am I Wrong

I was looking at it during the game. The Fisrt TD Colt Mcoy threw, he was on the run and I could swear he was over the line. I forget the exaact rule on this regarding what part of your body needs to be behind the line. I was supprised no one even took a second look.

Im probably wrong.

On a second note. Aside from not scoring touchdowns I thought the Colts looked sharp in the first half. I saw strong running and Mr. Collins took care of the ball.

At first, I thought he might be as well. The rule is the ENTIRE body has to be over the line for this rule to come in play, even if his pinkie finger was behind the line it'd still be a legal play. I have not looked at the play again, but I'm assuming his whole body wasn't in front of the line.

Yeah as he was leaping his back shoulder and arm were behind, as well as his back foot.

I watched the highlights on espn and it looked suspect. The officiating was not in our favor that's for sure, but I think the sports 'experts' would have caught it and said something.

We did play better than the first game. :applause: Collins is a good player. He looked much more at ease. We just need to punch a few more in to the end zone. :td:

Have a good one!

I thought the same thing at first. I didn't bother to rewind because I figured surely it was close enough that they'd at least mention it ans show a replay but they didn't. Fortunately I record the games so I rewound for myself. It was close but his back foot was just behind the line. It was pretty close though.

Here is a quote I found, supposedly from the NFL Rule Book

Any other forward pass by either team is illegal and is a foul by the passing team, including the following:

© A forward pass thrown after the ball has crossed the line of scrimmage and has returned behind it

Penalty: Loss of five yards.

So according to that, in your scenario if the ball crossed the LOS then it should have been called, if the ball did not then it should not have been called. But please a defender tried to tackle Wayne, then hook his arm then facemasked him all while the ball was in the air and they didn't call that. The refs weren't going to worry about a little thing like an illegal forward pass.

For what it's worth Polian was asked about it tonight and he said that by looking at the replay it was too close to call which is why it was not challenged. Sorry but for a TD that's worth losing a timeout over even if it would have left us wthout a challenge for the rest of the game.

You can't challenge TD's this year. That'd be a fifteen yard unsportsmanlike penalty.

This is what I thought too. I didn't think it had anything to do with the body just as long as the ball crossed the line of scrimmage.

Terrible coverage everyone was looking the guy who was running toward the endzone instead of the guy in the endzone. The DBs should've stuck on the receivers when they saw McCoy rolling out like that. Not only should they covered the receivers but should've been looking for a pick.

Secondary was caught standing around

    • continued...   2023 NFL Draft   Round 1– LCB Devon Witherspoon – makings of Sauce Gardner and Jalen Ramsey taken with the 4th and 5th picks, respectively in their draft classes in Round 1   Round 2 – QB Hendon Hooker – Hooker is one of my top 3 QBs in this class and the steal of the draft imho   Round 3 via WSH – WR Rashee Rice 4.36 40-yd, 74% blocking solid all around WR not a burner outside but very dangerous inside   Round 4 – TE Brevyn Spann-Ford (Minnesota) – sticking with players who can run-block the Colts add another weapon with both Rice and Spann-Ford.  Brevyn is the best run-blocking TE in the class.  He earned an 82.8 run-blocking. grade which was ranked 3rd in FBS this season.   Round 5 – RCB Riley Moss (Iowa) - last season has a zone defense coverage grade of 81.5.  Gilmore’s future replacement at RCB.   Round 6 – QB Jaren Hall (BYU) – like Hooker had a very productive college career   Round 7– SS Kaevon Merriweather (Iowa) - 88.1 PFF grade. Versus Ohio State he had a 79 PFF grade.  Good measurements all around except hand and a 4.50s 40-time.   Offensive outlook ’23 Roster: QB:  Hooker, Ehlinger, Hall RB: Taylor, Moss, Jackson WR: Pittman Jr, Pierce, Campbell, Dulin, Rice, Strachan, Smith TE: Woods, Granson, Ogletree, Spann-Ford LT: Raimann, Edoga, Murray LG: Nelson, Haynes OC: Kelly, French, Pinter RG: Davis, Fries, Haynes RT: Smith, Edoga   Defense outlook ’23 Roster: Edge:  Paye, Lewis, Kareem IDL: Buckner, Williams, Agim IDL:  Stewart, Hill, Johnson Edge: Odeyingbo, Winovich, Berry   WLB: Okereke, Stuard MLB: Leonard, Speed, Rhyne SLB:  Franklin, Domann   CB: Witherspoon, Rodgers, Flowers SS: Cross, Merriweather, Denbow FS: Bates III, Thomas II, Watts, Dabo CB: Gilmore, Moss, Brown
    • Continuing in the direction of @John Hammonds and the rest of us forum arm-chair GMs   Coaching Staff   HC –Shane Steichen – no stranger to young rookie QBs and the Colts will need that help along with the proven productions as an OC Steichen has had over the years.  Adding Super Bowl Champion to his resume is soon coming.   OC – Pete Carmichael (Saints) – Carmichael remains very close to Drew Brees and with Brees ties to his alma mater in West Lafayette just makes sense to renew his growth along with Steichen at the helm.     DC – Gus Bradley – continue to build on our defense and not keep changing it every year or two   Restructure OC Ryan Kelly’s base 2023 (9.125m) and 2024 (11.375m) to 4.75m and 5.75m, respectively   2023 Roster Cuts: QB Matt Ryan QB Nick Foles TE Mo Alie-Cox DB Kenny Moore FS Julian Blackmon   FA Additions: RG Nate Davis (Titans) 44m contract 16m G, 9.5m SB, 18m/4-year plus 500k game bonuses OG Phil Haynes (Seahawks) 9m SB, 5m G, 9.5m base/3-year FS Jessie Bates III (Cincy) – family still in Ft Wayne wishes to stay close to home, 6m SB, 18m G, 26m/4-year base DT Trysten Hill (Cardinals) 3m SB, 2m G, 1.5m/2-year base Edge Chase Winovich (Browns) 3m SB, 2m G, 1.75m/2-year base OT Chuma Edoga (Falcons) 3m SB, 1m G, 4.5m/2-year base   Own FA Resigned: DB Armani Watts 1-year 1.35m K Chase McLaughlin 1-year 2.1m P Matt Haack 1-year 1.2m Edge Khalid Kareem 1-year 950k CB Tony Brown 1-year 1.25m WR Ashton Dulin 1-year 2.5m Edge Tyquan Lewis 1-year 2.5m LB E.J. Speed  4m/2-year base, 2m G WR Parris Campbell 9m SB, 9m G, base 24m/3-year base LB Bobby Okereke 9m SB, 9m G, base, 22m/3-year base       Rumors have it that the Panthers intend to jump ahead of the Colts and trade with Arizona.  Trading away RB Christian McCaffrey gave them additional draft capital.  The hiring of Reich just adds insult to injury, and he now has a change to stick it to the man who cut ties with him mid-year and take the QB the Colts coveted the most...or was it just draft smoke screen?  Maybe the real reason why the Colts had representation at the Kentucky-Tennessee game to watch both quarterbacks in action.  Hooker and the Vols dominated the Wildcats that day and left a very strong impression with the Colts brass.  Hooker is an older quarterback prospect but has excelled facing tough SEC competition showcasing his resume the past two seasons.  McKee from Stanford might have lightning-quick processing but has a bad history of throwing interceptions and hasn’t improved his reads.  We already had too many recent QBs throw too many INTs and its never a good formula for NFL success.   Denver just hired Payton as their HC and now the Saints have P29.  Its possible they take McKee but more likely they take Edge Will McDonald IV (Iowa St) to replace Marcus Davenport. Knowing we still don't have a QB on our roster besides Ehlinger expect the Saints to move ahead of the Colts in Round 2 to draft McKee.    
    • Callahan is Peyton's guy more than Jeff Saturday is Peyton's guy?  Peyton would get involved and recommend Callahan over Jeff?
    • Seems like they are not getting publicity but here are some measurements: https://www.the33rdteam.com/category/nfl-draft/2023-senior-bowl-weigh-in-measurement-results-for-nfl-prospects/      
    • Is it just me, it have measurements NOT been done yet?!?    I thought they were typically done Monday of the week,  but they’re not up on the website yet.     Seems strange to me…..
