    Defensive tackle Spencer Johnson said it was a mistake on his part.

    Coach Brad Childress called it "a fiasco."..........

    You have to give it to the Chiller.
    I'm serious.
    What a putz.
    Throw the fricken challenge flag.

    Seriously though.
    Even I know you don't try to substitute on a play were the team is gonna try to snap it quick.
    What the hell was the D-coord and players thinking.

    Damn.

    My question is:
    Since when is a penalty challengeable?
    Evidently this is a legal challenge but why is that penalty okay when no other is?

    You know I blame the coaches for this debacle more than the players but how can you blame this on him?
    Was he the idiot that tried to sub out and wasn't aware of what was going on?

    Sure he is the head coach and ultimately responsible but damn, he has a D-coord and DL coaches and assistants to make sure that kindof crap doesn't happen.


    Comeon my friend give me something better than this to work with. Elaborate on what his role was in that whole snaffu.

    Certain penalties that are clearly seen on tape that are not judgement calls (such as 12 men on the field) were always challengeable.

    Does anyone know if the Redskins substituded before the fumble?
    If so, Childress is correct that the Skins need to give the Vikings and opportunity to substitute.

    Certain penalties that are clearly seen on tape that are not judgement calls (such as 12 men on the field) were always challengeable. - Any penalty can be clearly seen on tape.
    Again, a penalty is a penalty.
    If none are challengeable than none are challengeable.

    Does anyone know if the Redskins substituded before the fumble?
    If so, Childress is correct that the Skins need to give the Vikings and opportunity to substitute.
    - I doubt it since they were trying a hurry-snap.
    However I wonder if Santana Moss was on the field.
    He would be the only one.

    The announcers said they didn't, but Childress claims to have film that they did.

    Did we have 12 on? We did. But they changed personnel. The video is going to show that, and it's irritating as hell."
