Mike Pereira says ‘Philly Special’ should not have counted

Philly Special was an ingenious play call, but former NFL director of officiating Mike Pereira believes Nick Foles’ touchdown catch on the play in Super Bowl 52 should have been called back for an illegal formation.

Game Ron Brooks Jersey The down judge . . . felt that it was his judgment, and he (receiver Alshon Jeffery) was close enough, Pereira, now an analyst for Fox Sports, told the Talk Fame Sports Network. Well, he wasn’t. They lined up wrong.

The rule got in trouble because they differentiated between a receiver who is upright and on his feet and a receiver who is going to the ground. Two different rules. And I think that is the mistake, Pereira added,

Pereira went on to outline his proposed catch rule, one where officials stay clear of overly judicious analysis by replay.

To me, you treat them the same way. It’s control, two feet and time, Pereira said. Time is described in the (rule) book as turning upfield, taking extra steps, tucking the ball in 锟斤拷 and where the rule really started to have problems is when replay started to make decisions as to what is the element of time.

Replay can decide control. Replay can decide two feet like the Clement play. But element of time is subjective.

Pereira was referring to the TD catch by Eagles running back Corey Clement in the Super Bowl. There was debate over whether Clement caught the ball inbounds.

Earlier, we heard that there would be 25 bars along the parade route serving Bud Light, which would give you a decent selection of places. But all the Anheuser-Busch rep would confirm on Monday afternoon is that there will be free Bud Light at multiple bars.

There are no details on how they’re going to enforce the one-beer limit. So maybe if you’re in Philadelphia shoot your shot on another at the bar you go to, or just go to the next one that has free beer.

It seems very uncool that Bud Light is pulling the hesitation move on the Eagles just to sponsor their parade, but some free beers are better that none.

Perhaps this is the last stand for Dilly Dilly.

You can’t beat the Patriots by going completely conservative with Jamison Crowder Authentic Jersey a lead. Just ask the Jacksonville Jaguars, who lost the AFC Championship to New England by doing exactly that. Doug Pederson apparently gets it.
