FWIW....John Lynch was on Dan Patrick this morning and said a couple of things relating to this topic.

1. When he was with the Bucs, Herm Edwards taught the DBs to push the receivers out of bounds if they had the opportunity. He said that they way they determined if he was leaving the pocket, was by the length of time of the play as they knew the QB wouldn't be able to remain in the pocket all that long and once he was on the move he'd be considered out of the pocket.

2. He thought the play was called correctly by the officials.

3. He thought the rules were appropriate and did not need to be changed.

Happy and Peppy and Bursting with love.

If you're the Saints, you did the right thing cos it worked. As for pocket time, it's theory. In this case he was in the pocket and the rule was incorrectly called. John Lynch is no dummy. He knows how to play "the Game."

No doubt a tough way to lose. It would have been nice if the official at least explained his call instead of just running off the field. A lot fans where left thinking what the heck just happened.

I believe the final call was illegal touching but the full explanation of why no PI and why he can't re-establish himself would have been nice. They ruled Freeman was out of the pocket and considered a runner which makes illegal contact down the field impossible and also make Mike Williams a blocker instead of receiver which essentially makes it like a punt coverage meaning he just cannot be the first to touch the ball.
