Game-Changing Play of the Week:*

The NFL rule book is a deep and confusing tome at times, but we all know Rule 88.d -- all controversial game-ending touchdown calls must go against the Detroit Lions.

Scott already said plenty about this play and the drive in*Clutch Encounters, but there are a couple other points to make with a play like this:

I'm glad I'm not a referee. I do believe the call was the right one -- it looks like Golden Tate's knee brushes the grass. But man, is it close.Running a pass route short of the end zone when a stop ends the game may not, in fact, be ideal. A slant is the best route to run short of the yard to gain, but it still leaves you open for getting tackled in the field of play.You need a clock runoff rule of some kind in these situations. It's unfair for a team to get a free timeout because of referee error.A*ten-second runoff*is somewhat arbitrary. It was a standard*set in the 1950s, and the game has changed since then. It's worth looking into the offseason, to see if adjusting the amount of time taken off the clock makes sense. Could the Lions have gotten to the line of scrimmage if the refs had made the correct call? I doubt it; the confusion about whether it was a touchdown or not would have eaten a second or two, and then you've got to get lined up properly and everything. But it's not a definite no, and the fact that they didn't get to try feels unfair.

By PFR's win probability metric, the Lions lost 49.4 percent of win probability on the play. By our numbers, the Lions lost 10.4 percent in their odds to win the North. You could argue, then, that this one play cost them more than five percentage points towards the division title. That's not good.

It also cost Bryan his Lock of the Week, so therefore, it must have been the wrong call.

In layman's terms.....

It was a bunch of bullshit.

So since this call could be even more crucial with the Carolina having a tie breaker against the Lions and a 1 game lead (potentially).

As we know the Ref's called it TD, review came in and said it was a catch but no TD. By rule there has to be a 10 second run off. As crappy as that is ok it is the rule.

So yesterday I was watching the Patriots vs The Steelers, the overturned TD pass; I am thinking more about it today.

They called it a TD and stopped the clock, but after review it wasn't a catch thus an incomplete pass so the they can't do the 10 second run off because the clock would have been stopped anyway on an incomplete pass.

So basically the Lions got royally rogered in the keester for Tate catching the damn ball.

What a load of crap, again. Sorry to bring it up and haunt all those who might read this, but now I am more pissed about that rule.

If Quinn is indeed our GM, and not martha, and Caldwell gets replaced, as I expect he Will if Quinn is really in charge, then that overturned TD will be a blessing.
