A good day in the NFL

I've watched bits of two morning games: New Orleans/Baltimore and Seattle/Kansas City.

Dick Enberg and Randy Cross witnessed an overrule of a Steve McNair fumble due to the tuck rule. They actually anticipated the replay reversal and understood the rule. When Jerome Boger made his ruling, they complimented the ruling while criticizing the rule. I'm okay with that--it's good to see that a rule is being enforced properly and give props for that even if one dislikes the rule. (And Randy Cross ifs often a bad ref-basher.)

In the KC/Seattle game, sideline reporter Jay Glazer called NFL head of officiating Mike Pereira to clarify an upheld replay that a Garo Yepremian-style play by Chiefs holder Dustin Colquitt was ruled a fumble and not a pass. Made the play much clearer for Matt Vasgersian and JC Pearson to analyze.

I'm telling you, NFL...more information is always better. Talk to an expert ref. Always.
