I don't know how he did it, but Harbaugh was able to challenge that last play against us, but only if.... and the ref gave some qualifiers. It's pretty weird how the league operates on a week-to-week basis. Maybe he thought that they had made their decision on the call and had to stick and the review could change it. Stupid yes... but after what happened last week, I guess nobody really understands the rules on challenges.
I am wondering if anybody has clarified why Stafford wasn't called for grounding with 24 seconds left. It's too bad grounding isn't reviewable, because that one should have been reviewed in the booth... but it's a "judgement call". BS on that. That was a game changer and should have been called.
I thought it should have been grounding too, and haven't heard much about that one.
As for the challenge. Brock and Salk told Pete that he should have just said that he used the challenge instead of a timeout to give the defense a rest......Pete said that he didn't want to do that, and that he honestly just got overexcited and made a mistake. I'm glad he owned up to it, but it's something that really should have never happened and hopefully it won't happen again.
