    Schwartz should know that all scoring plays are reviewed. I think he'lll have a lot of time - and I mean a lot of time - to think about it after the season is over.

    I was watching NFLN and they had a league official explaining the rule because it happened in the Falcons Cards game when Mike Smith threw the flag in a similar situation.

    Basically what the league official said was the rule is in place to not disrupt the flow of the game. The rule makes sense, but the punishment hardly seems to fit the crime.

    Just make the penalty 15 yards after the review. If its not a td bring the ball back and give them 15 yards.

    Isn't the 15 yards enough? They got a td and 15 yards

    That or take away a timeout from them.

    If team doesn't have a time out left then assess a 15 yd penalty.

    But to just dismiss a review? Ridiculous.

    And how does it slip by the competition committee.

    Don't worry, it'll change when it happens to New England.
