Based on a critical non-call of pass interference in the final minute of the 49ers-Buccaneers game https://www.49ersfanshop.com/Alfred-Morris-Jersey , it appears that the standard for throwing a flag via replay review is higher than it was believed to be.“It was determined that both the offensive player and defensive player were contacting each other as they were going down the field,” senior V.P. of officiating Al Riveron said in a video explaining the decision to uphold the ruling on the field. “Neither player significantly hindered the other’s opportunity to make a play on the ball. Therefore the ruling on the field stood.”The video suggests otherwise. Although review of the full play shows a subtle shove by Evans while the two are jostling for position Weston Richburg Jersey , Sherman clearly and obvious hinders Evans as the ball is arriving. While it’s not the same kind of blatant hit that marred the outcome of the NFC Championship game, it’s much more obvious than the examples of non-calls from 2018 that Riveron had said would have resulted in a reversal via replay review. Indeed Cassius Marsh Color Rush Jersey , former NFL V.P. of officiating Dean Blandino said during the FOX broadcast that replay review should have resulted in a ruling of pass interference.Given the messages sent by Riveron before the regular season began, the situation continues to be confusing. Based on Riveron’s doubling-down video https://www.49ersfanshop.com/Brock-Coyle-Jersey , it appears that the bar for a reversal is higher than he had previously led the media to believe it would be. As the remaining 240 regular-season games unfold, it will be interesting to see whether this same high bar will apply in future cases https://www.49ersfanshop.com , requiring something even more than the “what the hell!?!” standard we’ve previously suggested for these reviews.Based on the decision not to drop the flag via replay review in 49ers-Bucs, the standard for a reversal actually may be “what the f–k!?!” The 49ers got a huge win in New Orleans last weekend San Francisco 49ers Customized Jerseys , but their return to the top of the NFC playoff picture was a brief one.Julio Jones caught a pass from Matt Ryan on the goalline on what appeared to be the final play of regulation and was ruled down short of the end zone on the field. Replays showed that the ball broke the plane as he went down to the ground and was therefore ruled to be a touchdown.The score put the Falcons up 23-22 and the replay review showed two seconds left on the clock. The 49ers tried to lateral their way to a miracle score, but Atlanta wound up scooping up a fumble for a touchdown that made the final score 29-22 in Santa Clara.It’s a big loss for the 49ers San Francisco 49ers T-Shirts , who are now back into second place in the NFC West with the Seahawks winning earlier in the day. They still clinched a playoff berth as a result of the Rams’ loss to the Cowboys, but that’s likely small balm after losing a game that they led by nine points in the fourth quarter.The Falcons were able to rally after Kenjon Barner‘s fumble on a punt return helped gift the 49ers a touchdown that put them up 19-10. Jones played a big part in that effort and ended the day with 13 catches for 134 yards and his first two touchdowns since the third week of the regular season.Atlanta won’t have any more chances to impact the playoff race as they finish with the Jaguars and Buccaneers. That means the biggest thing to watch is whether their improved play down the stretch is enough to keep head coach Dan Quinn from losing his job.
