They count that Melvin Gordon touchdown run and his rating looks different.

Although the line will be fine, I'm still hoping for a great Fluker recovery.

I think Ladarius Green deserves green also.

A lot of guys' ratings look a lot different if they let them keep running after they're down.

I know this will be perceived as just crapping on Gordon, but really it isn't. I didn't have a problem with him. But he was down all the way.

No I understand. But do you think if not ruled down that they would have over turned it? Even looking at replay you can make an argument it was the back on his hand only like the announcers were saying. It may have been inconclusive.

Although from my eyes I am pretty sure his forearm was down. I just think that the ref may not have overturned the ruling had they not whistled him down. Then they'd have had to count it into their ratings.

I tend to think the video evidence was clear. I don't think that would have been a TD either way.

Watt and Franklin allowed a combined 11 QB hurries. Need to clean that up.

I didn't think it was clear. The shadows combined with the skin color of Gordon's arm made it hard to see on TV if it was his arm or shadows imo.

Franklin is supposed to be a known commodity up there. He wasn't impressive in preseason, and yesterday wasn't a great game. It's beginning to be a concern.

Ok. I watched it a few times and it's obvious to me that the forearm is down.

I lean more towards he was down also, but you have to admit it is hard to tell with the shadows.

I didn't think it was hard to tell. I'm not saying it can't be for anyone else. But my opinion is that it was obvious what happened.
