NFL official: Spot on McNabb sneak should have been moved

New, comments

You all remember the play... Last week, at around midfield Donovan McNabb ran a QB sneak on 4th down that the officials spotted short of a first down. Replays showed that McNabb was well ahead of where the ball was spotted, but officials instead upheld the ruling on the field.

Mike Pereira. Vice President of NFL Officiating, disagreed with the ruling.

"I think I'd move it," Pereira said. "There was a camera angle that showed exactly where the ball was when McNabb's elbow hit the ground. The Eagles logo at midfield provided a reference point. The spot where the ball was when McNabb's elbow touched the ground did not match the placement of the ball by the referees."

Well thanks... NOW you realize it!
