Stafford is very inaccurate.

He seems a bit like he's forcing it - national audience and a good D, coupled with possibly overcompensating due to the state of their season?

Mixed bag -

Megatrons not been himself

I don't think the other options are 100% reliable to be where they need to be

I think he's forcing it after a big year last year a little

Everything's just been a step out of sync it seems for them since last november

Detroit ball, if they get a good angle

I won't get too crazy over that one but it looked like he might've swung his leg a bit extra. Looked like the lower leg moved seperate from the natural momentum but maybe just trying to get balanced or something.

Couple nice throws by stafford. Big arm, good touch when he's on-- edit: real nice throw to CJ while I hit send.

He just is throwing it all over. Whipping it around from all kinds of release points and body positions with great zip and the accuracy has shown up generally

I didn't see the play in question as I'm cooking/baking but the halftime crew was pretty severe in their remarks.

Well, I did think it looked like a kick, intentionally. I just don't know how well he could've targeted or intended the result without seeing again. The last replay I saw I watched his leg more then his head. While the halftime crew was scathing, the live crew quickly said unintentional. He definitely, deliberately, extended the lower leg though.

That new angle showed his face looking up towards schaub when he kicked it looked like. If that's confirmed, especially given its two years in a row on turkey day with families watching, and the halftime crew nailing him on it.... The nfl might feel pressure to fine him here

Funny how it's always Suh.

With all the stuff from both on and off the field, it's become pretty much impossible to give the guy any benefit of the doubt.

Huh? Play is not reviewable?  Aren't scoring plays automatically reviewed?

Freaking Lil' Wally:

"The play cannot be reviewed"

It's a scoring play why wouldn't it be reviewed?

That's what I thought.

Meanwhile the announcers are out to lunch.

This could turn into a big mess.

That is just baffling. I can't wait for the explanation on this one.

That kind of thing is a disgrace to the NFL. How can they possibly have a rule like that? That they can't review it if the coach throws a flag. That is just terrible, and terribly unfair.

It's a bad rule.

Apparently if the coach throws a challenge flag, the play as a result cannot be reviewed.

What moron thought of that rule?

Isn't 15 yards enough of a penalty?

They gotta change that one.

Throwing a red flag can't benefit a team!? Then why throw it?

Illegal flag, that's a new one...

Has something to do with Schwartz throwing the red flag. Since it was illegal, it means they can't review the play? I still don't get it.
