    Wait. I don’t get it. Can someone please explain to me what happened. I thought Dallas blocked the punt so why are we celebrating?

    what was our lucky break?

        As it always is when PR team touches, but does not field the ball.

          After seeing the replay on YouTube, I understand why they ruled it the way they did.

          Had that ball bounced behind the line of scrimmage, I would say it’s a bad rule.

          No part of that play felt like the Broncos should have benefited from it. But again, I’ll take it.

            Right. Muffs can't be advanced which is why Denver got the ball at -19 instead of -28 where Griffith advanced it.

              This is a joke.
              Fix call? Not even. Proper application of the rules which is astounding, since it's Vinovich.

                No. It doesn't.

                Find me one example in the last 25 years.
                See posts #644, #648 and #650. It's the rules which govern change of possession via punts which have been around more than 25 years.

                  Thank you.

                    Invest in a rule book.

                      When the ball gets past the line of scrimmage on a punt it becomes a free ball as soon as the receiving team touches it. Any touch (block) behind the line of scrimmage does not count. Once the ball gets past the line of scrimmage and the receiving team touches the ball if they lose possession it is essentially a considered a turnover situation. The kicking team does not even need to get the ball past the first down.

                      Think it was more than 25 years ago but Leon Lett on Thanksgiving did this.
                      It's a muff which is why Denver got the ball at the -19 instead of the -27.

                        • Truly torn. On the one hand I want L’s and better draft position and a guarantee Vic and Shumur get canned….

                          But on the other hand, curb stomping the Cowboys is always a thing of beauty.

                          Ideally even with more wins (probably against the Eagles and Lions and I think we can catch the Chiefs slipping this year) Paton still moves on from the staff at the end of the year.

                          Will savor this week living amongst the Dallas faithful 


                          I'm becoming a big Cooper fan. Hopefully he can keeps building on his performances in Cleveland and this game.

                            I guess is depends on how well we perform. 8-9, 9-8 probably won't be enough to save Vic and Shurmur. However, 10-7,11-6; and a place in the playoffs may well be.

                            Personally, as long as the coaches have us consistently playing to our potential, I don't care who they are.

                              Let us get to 10-7 and give Dabol the hope that once he becomes headcoach, he can take us the rest of the way.
