Poorly officiated game. Mike Clary's group called a much cleaner game. And it did look like the only calls on Pittsburgh didn't hurt them much except for the safety which was a gutsy call.

 

They had to make up for the NON safety call. His forward progress was clearly stopped in the endzone.

The ball crossed the plane. His knee doesn't matter. It's just like a touchdown ruling; the spot of the ball matters, not the player. If a player got turned around going into the end zone for a TD and the ball was out of the end zone but his knee was down inside, it'd be placed outside the end zone where the ball was, and not be ruled a TD.

When his forward progress was stopped (no longer moving forward) the ball wasn't even close to being over the line. The entire ball has to be over the line..not just the tip.

i think they made the right call there. And the hold was no make up call-it was righteous.

If we are talking about the first quarter call that was clearly well short of the end zone. When his left knee hit the ground the ball was a good half a yard short, which is a LOT in those kind of scenarios.
