4th and 26

Postby tnathan » Mon Jan 12, 2004 5:01 pm

why aren't more people questioning whether the 4th and 26 throw really made the first down? the announcers noted that the spot was maybe 3 or 4 yards too far. why was there no booth review? i thought at least we'd see an on air reply. what do you guys think?

There was a on air replay (not challeged from booth) no need for review Mitchell got the first down..no question. Yea he might have gotten a good spot but he had the first easily. Upon further review...the Packers should have blitz!!

Yeah, I saw it on TV and I didn't have any doubt he got a good yard past the marker. For one thing, they had the computer generated red first down marker on the field, and he caught it one yard past, and then his forward progress was stopped.
