Sure did.

I was at the game last night and the showed the play about 6 times on the "big screen" before the call and another 3 times after the call.

I've never heard boos that loud even back in the Rich Kotite (sp?) days.

I still don't see how they came to the conclusion. Coles had control of the ball in the air, landed on one foot, dragged the other (while still maintaining control) and didn't bobble it until after his elbow hit the ground. Once you have control of the ball with both feet on the ground in the endzone it is a touchdown regardless of what happens afterwards.

Like a RB who reaches for and breaks the plane of the goal line with the ball and then has the ball knocked away...it's a TD since once the plane is broken, the play is over.

No doubt in my mind...they were hosed on the call.

In the long run though, it may be Houston, Green Bay, San Francisco, Baltimore, or most ironically New Orleans that gets hosed if the Jets end up with the #1 pick come April because of this call.
