Week 2 Winner: Officials of the SD/Denver Game
Norv Turner and Chargers fans are irate over the botched call made by the
official at the end of yesterday's game with the Broncos. Jay Cutler had
fumbled the football in an attempt to make a pass near the Charger's 10 yard
line. The football was recovered by the San Diego Chargers but the official had
blown the play dead and the Broncos maintained possession. The Broncos then
proceeded to score the game winning touchdown followed by a 2 point conversion
to steal a victory away from the Chargers. It was the second straight week
the Chargers lost a game right at the end of regulation.
Video and Analysis of Cutler's fumble from NFL Network:
The Chargers were also a victim of the instant replay system failing in the 1st
quarter of this game. The Broncos had recovered a Chris Chamber's fumble
in Chargers territory. However, replay on TV showed that Chamber's elbow was down before
the football had come out. Most likely this play would have been
overturned but due to a malfunction with the instant replay system the play
stood as called. This led to the Broncos scoring the 1st touchdown of the
game. Could this have been a conspiracy by Broncos technicians working at
the game? I'm sure Chargers fans think so!
New Instant Replay Backup Plan: When the instant replay system is not working,
have official run up to the television booths and take a look at the play.
