Rules Question - Doyle incompletion

Recommended Posts

So on the failed 3rd down conversion which sparked the disastrous kick that totally changed the game, I have a question.

 

Doyle did drop the ball but he was clearly interfered with. When Tenn challenged that it was incomplete, could the refs have ruled that it was P.I.? If not, could we have countered-challenged for P.I. when it was ruled incomplete?

That blown call really shows how a ref screw-up can totally change the game. Instead of us driving for a TD, we're demoralized by a blocked kick return for a TD.

IMO, it WAS pass interference.  At the same time, I'd bet if we challenged the refs would refuse to admit it.  And, yeah, what's with all the thread locking?

Maybe I'm wrong here, but this is my understanding.  When you challenge a play (eg. challenging what was ruled a catch as being an incompletion), that's all the refs can review.  If there was holding on the pass during that play, that can't be reviewed.  The only thing they can review is if there's a completion or not.  So even if there are other aspects to the play that weren't called correctly, those can't be reviewed during a challenge.

Not sure why this post was locked. Game was effectively over but anyways.

 

There needs to be better consistency on these calls.

Forum policy is to lock any threads that are created during a game because it's usually just posts about what happens during the game, which should be done in the game day thread.  If it isn't like that, they'll be re-opened after the game to allow the discussion to take place, as is what happened here

May I request that the policy be revised? This post was tantamount to having a sidebar conversation in a very crowded room. It didn’t detract from the Gameday thread and participants could willingly post there during the game or take part after the game has concluded. Just a suggestion

I could be wrong but I think once you challenge something you can review all aspects of the play pertaining to challenges.  Since PI is reviewable I think that would be covered by that.

I understand what you're saying, but the post was re-opened for discussion after the game was over to allow the discussion to take place.

But wouldn't you have to state that when challenging?  The refs ask the coach what they want to challenge.  So, if I understand correctly, the order would have to be Tennessee challenges that there was no catch, then Indy would challenge that there was PI?  Not sure how it all works

If it wasn’t so much of a joke challenging PIs this year we prolly would’ve had a chance.

Yeah but it’s like when you challenge being short of a first down.  Say they spotted the ball wrong respotted it but you were still short you would win the challenge because the ball moved but you didn’t get the first down which is what you challenged.  I’ve seen that happen in Colts games before.  

 

In theory then Frank would have had as much right to turn around and challenge the PI call.  I don’t think the NFL wants two reviews on the same call.  Again I could be wrong.  I am no expert on the NFL replay rules but I think I’ve heard the former officials say all aspects subject to review are reviewed on reviews before.

That does make sense; I do still wonder if we could have then challenged that it was P.I.

there was no pass attempt on the 3rd down prior to the FGA that was blocked and returned for a TD

 

JB stood in a nice pocket and wasted 3 seconds then scrambled to his left and lost 2 yards.

    • Yeah, said the same thing in the Dakich interview thread. I think you’re 100 percent correct about Most of that. I don’t see is taking a 3/4 round QB, I honesty think we won’t take one at all.
    • JB has lots of clean pockets and couldn’t find anyone “open”. 
    • This is the ideal approach...replace the QB room...wash the stink off from last season...move on the from Luck era entirely...and try to win in the short and long-term. I am not sure what Rivers has left...but he has the Reich connection and is only a year removed from a very good season. The Colts have the resources to afford this strategy. 
    • So I was reading  that Fromm had a better season in 2018 then this year so I went back and watched a video. He does look really good. He clearly goes through progressions and has a very quick release. There is some deep balls in this video too. He has a few things like toughness and leadership including smarts down pat. I believe I read he finished at Georgia as the most accurate in school history. Plus he competed against very good competition. Looks like he processes things really quick.     
    • Man, you won’t believe this. Picks No.74 and picks No.86 have produced 8 hall of famers with 4 each at those draft spots. Read this:   https://m.herosports.com/nfl-draft/74-86-draft-pick-historically-productive-curtis-martin-andre-reed-byby   Hall of Famers Andre Reed, Jackie Slater, Joe Schmidt and Morton Andersen, as well as notable stars Marshal Yanda, Tedy Bruschi were drafted at No.86   Take your pick on who’s the best No.86
