    Why did we not challenge the TERRIBLE spot that robbed us of a 1st down?

    I was yelling for Philbin to throw the challenge flag but I guess he was saving it for today...
    Why not at least make them lie again after looking at the film?

    Because we had 1 TO left for the game
    Also, i didn't see anything definitive that said we would have gotten a better spot. You never saw the ball!

    Those types of challenges are rarely overturned.

    The kicker missed a FG and tanne threw a pick in OT. That 1st down didn't cost us the game

    Any play can influence the outcome of the game. We DID get that first down. We got a HORRIBLE spot. That could have been the drive that put it away. You never know.

    Did he? I mean sure I have seen refs spot that ball better but it wasn't a god awful spot and I rewinded the play several times. He needed to be on the 32 and I don't think he got all the way there . . . though I think he was a few inches further than the spot.

    Point is, the Fins had one timeout left and Philbin knows that wasn't getting overturned. For all we know, Philbin challenges that call, loses and then with those change of events the whole game is changed and the Fins end up wishing they had that timeout and we are crucifying him for wasting it on a play he should of known that wasn't getting overturned.

    Whether we made the spot or not . . . . that wasn't getting overturned.

    Real time I thought we had it too, wanted a challenge. After seeing the replay, I wasn't sure, and there certainly wasn't enough to overturn it. Philbin felt the same.

    Your nickel and diming Philbin when he made the right call.
