The stars aligned for that playoff win.

The guy sucks as a QB. Sanchez sucks too, he has some playoff wins under his belt as well.

The Jets are screwed either way.

Screwed right into the playoffs if Tebow gets his hands on the QB job.

Lol. No way. The Jets issues go way beyond QB at this point.

Like their top cornerback being out for the rest of the year for instance.

Am I the only one that doesn't have a problem with what happened to the Lions yesterday? First, glad it happened to Schwartz, he seems like a scumbag. Second, I think the rule is fine, it's made to prevent coaches from delaying the game, it's a pretty straight forward rule and the only one in the wrong here is Schwartz.

Well the refs were wrong too, since they made the wrong call in the first place.

Penalizing the Lions and not reviewing the play took less time than the review process usually takes and it caused a painfully obvious incorrect call to play a factor in determining the outcome of the game, which is exactly what instant replay is supposed to prevent. Schwartz's is an idiot for not knowing the rule, but the rule is stupid.

With the benefit of replay, it was clear that they made the wrong call, but I prefer if there's any hesitation amongst the refs to let the play go and allow replay to correct any mistake. It would be more frustrating if the refs blew the play dead when the guy wasn't down, and in that case there's no chace to fix a wrong call. I think the refs did the right thing letting the play go.

I'm fine with the unsportsmanlike 15 yarder, but why would they rule out an automatic review? What if the Texans challenged? Would that negate a review that they knew would be overturned? I'd kick off from my own 20 to keep 7 points I didn't really deserve.

I'm pretty sure the ruling is worded so that this would only apply if the Lions appealed. The Texans have to challenge something, and I don't think they'd be allowed to challenge against their benefit.

Ideally, they would have let Foster run in, huddled, then ruled him down.

Yeah , canceling the review was stupid and I guarantee that rule will be changed after the season. The penalty is fine, however.

I'm not bitter that Houston won. In fact, I'm glad theybwon because it makes it less likely that the Ravens or Pats can sneak into the 1 seed. But it was bogus.

But it's a black and white rule....it's sort of like if you're on the sideline and the opponent is running along and you trip him to prevent the TD and take the 15 yarder. It was a scoring play that was going to be reviewed, STFU, stop putting on a display and let the play get reviewed. Schwartz needs to keep a level head, the fans are allowed to throw whiny fits, but he's in charge and has to be able to maintain composure in order to be at head coaching.

Agreed that Schwartz is an idiot, but that doesn't really change the fact that the rule is over the top.

It's easy to say that replay would fix a call, but everyone assumed replay would reverse the play in the Giants/Steelers game where BRoeth's arm was going forward and they called it a fumble anyway, or in PSU/Nebraska where the PSU player clearly broke the plane before losing the ball. Replay isn't perfect, and there is a presumption towards the ruling on the field. If the refs would actually make the calls they see instead of letting it go to replay to hopefully clean up they'd actually do their jobs.
