Yes that's why the TO was chargedtrekfan55 said:Not a fumble.
Edit: Wait what?? Aren't all turnovers reviewed automatically?
Delay of game penalty, I believe.trekfan55 said:So the Latin guys say that because Kelly threw the flag when it's an automatic review then they took away his timeout. Not sure that makes sense.

Rule is dumb. Throwing a chalenge flag when the review will take place anyways results in a penalty (loss of a timeout) why exactly?

That's my point. Review is happening anyways.Jnai said:I understand the general point of the rule. The ref is supposed to react to that signal by the coach and immediately stop play. I assume the idea is to not have coaches throwing them left and right and then picking them up saying "my bad".
This situation is really dumb though. The play is already stopped by the booth. Just pick up the red flag and move on with life.
This part of your post has merit. I can't, off the top of my head, recall the exact offseason - it was either '10 or '11 - where it was reported Belichick and a few assistants had visited Kelly during spring workouts with the intention of incorporating variations of what he was doing into New England's offense.terrynever said:The Patriots' no-huddle offense is somewhat similar to what Chip Kelly has brought to Philly. The method for signaling play calls is different. Eagles have better skill position players, except for Brady, of course.
Colts? Cards?maufman said:Eagles are rivaling the Pats for most impressive Week 16 performance.
The Bears defense is showing new levels of suck. And their offense has done nothing vs a defense that surrendered 40+ points to the Vikings last week (who had Matt Cassell at QB and no AP at RB).maufman said:Eagles are rivaling the Pats for most impressive Week 16 performance.

No doubt this is the wave of the future, until some smart defensive coach finds a way to slow things down.

There has to be a penalty of some sort, otherwise, throwing the flag can have an effect on the game. And just allowing coaches to pick it up and say "my bad" doesn't work. Yes, in the case of a turnover, there is an automatic review, however, the same rule applies to the last two minutes of the half where the booth is the only place that can call for a review. For example, when Chicago got the good spot at the end of the first half, Kelly couldn't throw the challenge flag because it was at the end of the half. The result was that Chicago got up to the line quickly, snapped it and spiked the clock. Had Kelly thrown the flag, it would have automatically stopped play and the clock, and likely given the booth time to call for a review. Kelly probably should have done it anyway, and given up a timeout so the booth would have taken a look, but that's the point of there being a penalty. In the case of a turnover or a scoring play where the clock is stopped, it's much less of a big deal, but there are instances where the play can't be reviewed (obviously, including a number of subjective calls that can't be reviewed anyway) and coaches could find ways to use the red flag in those situations to their advantage, so the rule has to be applied across the board.

Kelly's offense would be grossly oversimplified to just be called a hurry up offense.crystalline said:
It's the wave of the now. Just off of the top of my head, I've seen the Bills, Jets, Saints, Eagles, Pats, and Broncos run the hurry-up. And a quick search gives articles about the Colts and Steelers running it.
