Default Saint's Bouncing Snap Illegal

Not that it affected the final outcome or anything, but I think if they were going to call that ticky-tacky, sock-pulling, Roughing the Passer, they should be consistent.

Per ESPN, halfway down the page, next to the picture of the Asian hottie in the black dress.

Quote:
Facing second-and-goal on the Pittsburgh 4, the Saints appeared to execute a bouncing direct-snap to tailback Deuce McAllister, who ran for the touchdown. Announcers debated whether it was a trick play or a botched snap. It was the latter, and the official Game Book lists the play as a fumble by center Jeff Faine. Overlooked -- there should have been a penalty! Direct-snapping to a running back is legal only if the quarterback never places his hands under center; once someone places his hands under center, only that person can receive the snap. Drew Brees was under center when this happened. Rule 7-3-4 states, "Any extension of hands by a player under center as if to receive the snap is a false start unless, while under center, he receives the snap.

So would Troy's interception they screwed up in the Indy game last year. I'm more than tired of hearing how the refs won our SuperBowl for us.

I am too...but I take an evil joy in reminding these lombardi-impaired teams that we overcome bad calls like in the Indy game....and in truth overcame bad calls in the SB...The WORST call in that game was when Stevens caught a pass..tucked it in...turned...and the ball was knocked loose and recovered by our defense and then was ruled an incomplete pass....BUT WE OVERCAME!!!

Good teams overcome..bad teams whine for a year.
