A team like New England wouldn't make that mistake. It starts at the top.
If this Freeney guy played for a coach and team with BALLS, he would have his ass CUT tomorrow.
I guess if you're a homer you see this stuff a little differently.
I thought his second step was easily out of bounds.
It was a bad challenge and if the guys upstairs told him to challenge it, they screwed up.
Now I am become coach, the destroyer of teams.
Thigpen muffed it but I think he was down.
We should challenge!!
meanwhile.... the yets are 6-7 and getting help from the other teams in the wildcard hunt... funnnnn5
My question is since when are you allowed to advance a downed punt? Once possession is established, the play is dead, right? If he has possession at the 2 then walks into the endzone, it should be dead where he established possession... at the 2.
