The NFL is usually pretty good about fessin' up to bad calls and I hope they do on that one. But it does not change anything. That call cost the Bengals a win and it hurts.
Hey, I totally agree. Justin Smith not only sacked the QB legitimately and cleanly, he forced a fumble. Game over. Did you hear Marvin? He said, "I guess you're supposed to cuddle the quarterback to the ground."
It truly was one of the more ridiculous roughing calls I've ever seen.
