    O'Connell fumble recovery near goal line

    It looks like to me, if they refs wouldn't have blown the play dead when Helu fumbled near the goal line that O'Connell would have taken it 100 yards for a touchdown. There was nobody in front of him.

    Thought the same thing. Can't really blame them though.

    He may have, but it sure looks like the runner was down.

    Re: O'Connell fumble recovery near goal line

    No way was the runner down...

    I am just happy they were man enough to overrule their original call and I'll take the touchback in that situation.

    No kidding, they replayed in slow mo 1000 times. It was clear that it was our ball.

    Did you see the replay? I'm guessing O'connel doesn't score though either.

    Re: O'Connell fumble recovery near goal line

    Ya, definately a fumble, a shame we didn't get the return but at that point I was just happy with the fumble. A couple years ago that wouldn't have been reviewable. That was a very tough call to make on the field, I couldn't blame them for calling him down.

    runner was certainly not down. that is why we have replay to confirm or dis confirm such suspicion.

    Re: O'Connell fumble recovery near goal line

    They discussed on the radio a bit too, don't even debate whether it was a fumble, of course it was. But I think he could have gone a long way if not 100 for a TD if the whistle hadn't blown. That being said the refs called a great game and the booth got EVERY review right, although the Jake Williams TD review was kind of a head scratcher.

    Re: O'Connell fumble recovery near goal line

    I'll take the ball and a touchback any day, and I was just happy that the whistle hadn't blown prior to that.

    As far as the Jake Williams touchdown, you can see the ball loose as he was going down, but he got his arm under it and secured it as he hit the ground.
