The ball clearly struck the upright then hit the extension bar beyond the cross bar and bounced back into the playing field. I must have seen the replay about 55 times from 53 different angles in the press box.
Like it or not, it was the right call.
Now the debate will be whether the official actually went under the hood to review the call or not (and he says he did not) but remember he never used the word "review." He said, "discussion."
That “leader” would, of course, be No. 52 Ray Lewis.
Ray has had a tendency of doing this on a regular basis lately, and it is growing old to everyone in the media (and players, etc).
Someone said to me “it is hard for Ray to say anything after a loss like this.” Well, it wasn’t too hard for Kyle Boller, Brian Billick, Matt Stover, Chris McAlister, Devard Darling, Jarrett Johnson, Haloti Ngata, Dwan Edwards, Derrick Mason, Justin Bannan, Mark Clayton, Adam Terry, Jason Brown, Gary Stills, and other players who last I checked were in the same game as Ray.
I will say that Terrell Suggs and Bart Scott also walked out without talking to the media after watching Ray do it.
So I do blame them to a degree, but it was pointed out that certain players feel like they are being left to the wolves to talk when others are allowed to just walk out.
I just feel that if you want to pound your chest and talk about how great you are when you are winning (or stopping Willie Parker), then be available to do it when the team suffers a devastating loss.
