    It can be reviewd, but the play was whistled dead. Pretty stupid call....but whatever.
    Because I'm a Vikings fan, they are that much sexier.

    By now an NFL ref should be conditioned to NOT blow the whistle on close plays like that so that at least a team doesn't get f'd over.
    How many times have you seen a play go on when it should obviously be dead and then the refs huddle up and get the call right?
    What a novel idea!
    The zebras that ref Vikings game are actually DONKEYS!

    Re: Why cant an incomplete pass be reviewed?

    No, an incomplete pass can never be reviewed in that scenario. Catch vs. no catch can be reviewed. No catch vs fumble cannot be reveiwed if the initial call is an incomplete pass.

    Why?
    Think about it. If they call the play incomplete, then the play is over. Everything that happens after that is chaos. Greenway didn't even make it into the endzone, and half the players on the field stopped. So, if you challenge that, and rule it was a fumble, the rest is guesswork. Who gets the ball? Where do they get the ball? etc.

    The only way around this is to always make the initial ruling of fumble. Then Greenway returns that for a TD, and it is up to GB to decide whether they want to challenge it.

    the rule has been changed and the person only hs to have two feet on th ground.
    Let the play continue and place the responsibility on GB.
    It should have been a recovery for Greenway.

    shouldve been the call...

    but i think they should be able to review a catch fumble if it was called incomplete, and give the team that recovers the ball where they picked it up

    Thanks josdin00
