Default Hasselback illegal block/tackle...

Someone explain to me what happened here again... Is the flag technically correct or did the officials blow it?

TIA.

They blew it, just like they blew the call against Darrell Jackson, the call against Sean Locklear, and the call for Big Ben's so-called "touchdown". Basically, consider the refs your "12th Man". I can't wait until the day when the Steelers visit Qwest Field. Paybacks are a b*&%$!

To answer the question, yes, they blew the call. The penalty is when you hit low on a blocker, which Matt didn't do, he hit the ball carrier, going for a tackle, which should be legal.

Personally, the rule is dumb to begin with. On an interception return, you're going to bring down the returner however you can, and if that means tripping up his blockers, it should be legal. It's not a "cut block", you're going for a tackle.

Yeah they blew the call. Much like they did when Stevens fumbled the ball and it was called an imcomplete pass. But we will ignore that f-up because it did not effect the Seachickens. We will just swipe that one under the carpet.

Ok. That's all I need. Someone asked me the question and I wanted to respond intelligently about it.

So the refs didn't call a perfect game... I can't remember a game when they did.

Thanks.

Heh.. yep, one of the few balls that dude actually caught, and then dropped after taking a few steps and getting a nice hit. But yeah, let's not review that one, nope.

Yeah, like in our game against the Colts in the playoffs. Strange though, we over came the bad calls and still won. I wonder why? Maybe it has something to do with great teams being able to over come those bad calls? Hell, it's not like we gave them the first half of the game in order to blow us away like we did for the Seachickens in the Super Bowl.

But hey, another fact that we can put under the carpet.
