There was also the obvious hold/PI by Rams a little earlier on 3rd down.  Refs didnít seem to want to call it, and it cost the Saints.

But that last no call was about as egregious as it gets.  Itís the easiest and most obvious call in the world, and the game is likely over if itís made.  Refs were an embarrassment in this one.

Thatís just the way it goes sometimes.

Should have been an int. Brees made poor throws late.

As a Rams fan I am happy but that was a terrible no call.  Brees has no arm strength anymore.  he really struggles throwing the long ball.  And Goff needs to man up and run that ball in the end zone on the play before they kicked the gamy tying FG.  Good game and looking forward to the Super Bowl even if it's in a dome stadium in Atlanta!

Congrats and enjoy it. Saints had plenty of opportunities to win. One bad no call didnít cost them the game.

I do wish penalties like that were challengable though.

Sure Saints had blown opportunities.
There are usually plenty that can be pointed to in every close game that's played.

But refs CAN NOT miss that call, at that time in a Championship game.
It wasn't close, it wasn't bang, bang. And the defender was not looking at the ball, he was looking to take out the receiver.
NFL should be embarrassed. That crew should never sniff another championship game.


Game over if that call is made.

So I am bias and pretty sick about it all right now.

Iím a Cowboyís fan, and I knew it wasnít a catch by rule live.  Knew it would be overturned in a review.  This seasons, thatís a catch.  Unfortunately.

Yep, this is correct.  Total ineptness at the most critical stage of the game. 

Happened to Steelers late in the season too, but I was ok with that one, because, weíll, I hate the Steelers.

If you go back and watch it, it was obvious he was going to the ground in process of making the catch.  Thatís the issue on that play.  The ďfootball moveĒ really doesnít apply, because he wasnít able to keep himself from going to the ground as thatís where the momentum was automatically taking him.  He couldnít avoid going to the ground.  In that case, he had to maintain possession all the way through impact with ground.  He didnít.  The fact that as he was falling he was able to take a step or 2 and lunge as he was falling isnít relevant.

Had he caught the ball, then maintained control of his body by landing on his feet without his momentum taking him to the ground, then lunged forward on under his own power, then itís a catch.

Dez didnít catch it by the rule that was in place at that time. Terrible rule... but was the rule nevertheless.

And one bad call CAN ABSOLUTELY cost you a game. Happened to NO tonight. Proper PI call... game over.

Twice tonight that youíre incorrect tonight Dr Starcs.

One call does not cost you the game. Do you know that the saints wouldíve made the kick?  No. Most likely he makes it. But you donít know that.

So, today's paper says that the NFL has fined Roby-Coleman $26,739 for the no-call, helmet to helmet, pass interference play. He pays it. So, NFL says it was a bad call, R-C agrees and the Saints remain screwed. That makes everything right. <sigh>

I wish they would do away with refs in all sports. We live in a technology world now. There is no reason to continue to have games decided by refs.

In short, he was falling in style.  ;)

Saints had an absolutely terrible call against them that is inexcusable and should never have happened. High probability though no certainty that it cost them the game and a super bowl appearance.

Saints had plenty of self inflicted wounds that put them in a position to have the gave possibly determined by the refs in the first place.

Rams had a plethora of not that egregious but pretty awful calls/no calls that helped give the saints the lead in the first place.

Those refs shouldn't be allowed to be part of that important of a game in the future, but there's a lot more to the outcome of that game that the one blown play.
