Default Replay - needs fixed

Another bad week for officiating and replay.
I realize we lost because of inept QB play and turnovers, but it would have been nice to try one more shot from inside Browns territory with over 2 minutes to go. But because of a faulty replay system, we don't get that chance. Isn't replay to ultimately get the call right. Then why don't the rules allow that. With the game on the line, the refs are still in a position to cost a team the game.

They are reconsidering the rule that cost the Lions the game on Thanksgiving.
I've heard people argue that the Lions coach knew the rule and messed up by throwing the challenge flag, but that's kind of like saying it's OK for the refs to f*** up but not the coaches. I mean, his elbow was down, his knee was down. It really wasn't even close. So they can blatantly blow a call forcing a spontaneous over reaction from the coach.

The Ravens are gifted a 4th and 29 when they picked up 28 yards. Inside 2 minutes, game would have been over. A bad spot and then even a bad respot after review extends the game and the Ravens tie it and win it in OT.

All of these calls were game deciding bad calls this week.

Why did you burn all of your timeouts? Second week in a row. Poor game management .

What did Tomlin say? "Excuses are tools of the incompetent."

Rice made the yardage needed.

What do you propose? At least in the Ravens-Chargers contest, replay worked exactly as it was designed.

U might want to watch that replay. If you mean he made the yardage the refs required you're right. If you say he made it to the 34 yard line, which is where the 1st down marker was, you're wrong.

I honestly think they should get rid of instant replay. All it's done is invite people to argue about every play. They've never gotten everything right, and they never will.

I'd propose common sense by the replay official. If his knee was short of the 35 and his knee to the top of his thigh is straight up, then is it logical that from his belt to his chest is more than 4 feet long. Since the final mark was inside the 34, it's impossible that the spot was correct.

If you watch the slow mo, the defenders knee is right beside the ball as the knee is down and the ball is barely over the 35. No where near being inside the 34.
