The Sports Illustrated article on the game showed LaValliere making the tag; Bream's foot was not yet touching the plate. That's my basis.

Top 5 worst calls I've ever seen, in any sport, but mostly football:

2000 NFC title game, Bucs-Rams. The Bert Emanuel catch that got overturned and called incomplete because God forbid Tony Dungy's boring offense get into the Super Bowl over "the Greatest Show on Turf". One of only two sports conspiracy theories that I believe in to this day. (The other involves why the Patriots are the dynasty that they are, but that's another post.)

The Denzel Ward targeting/ejection call.

1992 NLCS, Pirates-Braves. Game 7. Sid Bream was out at the plate. I'll believe that until the day I die.

Chris Gamble's catch-that-wasn't against the Canes that would have put the game on ice.

That travesty no-call in the Superdome on Sunday.

Yeah, Tate's woofing has gotten a bit hard to hear. It's not like he can't win the job, I just think he thinks he's owed something, and that's not how it works at this level.

Of course, Fields responding to Tate's Tweet-storm by not responding and instead liking Tate's sister's bikini pics... savage.

Good luck, young man, in whatever you do. Except if it's against us. Until then...

Maybe this is what we need to shake up our offense. "Oh snap, Coach Matty knows this offense too well after defending against it every practice for 4 years. I guess we'll have to pass on first down every once in a while!"

Anyway, I'll wait until I see the results on the field to form an opinion.

I'll reserve judgment until I see the results on the field. The staff isn't even rounded out yet. If we get both Mattison and Washington, perhaps there's a DC-in-waiting arrangement or some such. But again, until we see how everything comes out on the field in September, I'm going to wait to throw Day under the proverbial bus.

The last RB that TTUN had that even resembles a Bama RB now was Tim Biakabutuka. Maybe you could put Chris Perry in as 2nd string. Give them multiple years of top-3 recruiting classes and maybe they get closer, but Harbaugh will need to undergo a massive philosophy change, and I don't think he's capable of doing that, not to any significant extent.

We're assuming the Giants get Haskins (which would be a damn good landing spot), but there's a possibility that whoever takes over down here in Tampa Bay (Koetter has been gone for weeks now without actually being gone) will want to start over with his own guy over Jameis Winston and take Haskins before the Giants can get him. That assumes, as suggested earlier in the thread, the Giants or the Jags don't bombard the 49ers with draft picks.

If Haskins is the pick for the Bucs, expect them to try to bring FitzMagic back for one more year to let Haskins get acclimated and then take over in 2020.
