Challenging a Non-Reviewable Play
I think I found a way to cheat the system. On thanksgiving Houston was awarded a touchdown on a play where (I think) #28 ran after being down by contact. The play would have been reviewed. Except coach Schwartz threw the challenge flag. During the off season a rule was put in place to penalize a team from using the flag in inappropriate situations as part of the automatic review system. A 15 yard penalty and the review which should have been automatic on a score is not allowed.
I know some will say this is dumb but this could happen. If during a close loss Anquan Boldin is ruled to have caught a touchdown and the call was iffy couldn't Harbaugh throw the flag and halt the review process. This could be the case for any turn over or score. Any coach could do this the rest of the season. Any one have any thoughts about this?
