I don't get that. if they can review the contact relative to the tip of the pass, they should reverse it....it CLEARLY was not PI until after the tip (though it was holding earlier on)

If they can say "it was a hold anyway" prior to the tip, then it is not reviewable.

WTF?

WTF because they didn’t call holding. That whole line of discussion from the broadcasting crew was lazy.

Yeah that was a poorly officiated sequence. Essentially made the review a subjective call which I didn't think they allowed for.

Yeah, to be clear, not really a complaint about fairness because he was clearly being held.

But bizarre to review anything there, and if you do I don't see how you can uphold "pass interference" as the flag.

It's a shame KC couldn't down it closer to the one. They just kind of watched the ball roll from the 3 to the 9.

One is a live-ball foul and one is a post-play foul. I'll gladly stand corrected if @CFB_Rules can say that it was enforced properly. I knew both fouls were called and he was suspended, but I was under the impression they should have both been enforced.

As for the other stuff, seriously, imagine if Burfict tweeted a death threat at a Steeler. The world might literally end, but when Vince Williams does it it's just good ol' Steeler football.
Can only take one foul in the NFL “per play”. (With some exceptions, such as contacting an official).

You could take both in college

McCauley was trying to argue that it would be a penalty anyway because of defensive holding, but the refs didn’t call defensive holding. They called PI.
McAuley inadvertently pulled the curtain back on an unofficial NFL process. He said he would have told the coach that the play was unchallengeable since he knew it was a sure loss. That sort of thing happens all the time but isn’t super public.

I don't know why some of the WRs run with the ball like it's a loaf of bread. Call it the Odell Beckhem Jr. He always does that and it's stupid.

It is so easy to punch it out and cause a turnover, which just happened.

I feel like Mahomes is what Flutie would have been had he been given the chance.
