We can disagree on where the line was...but on a review looking at that film it is inconclusive, and therefore shouldn't have been overturned. I called it the 15 because that's what the newsguy called it in that clip, but obviously he's not necessarily right either. Thanks btw to whomever moved these posts to their own thread...they belonged here.



Many sources state the LOS was the 14.
Quote:

Instant replay official Bill Parkinson's long-awaited ruling gave back to the Packers a game-tying, Don Majkowski-to-Sterling Sharpe touchdown pass. That 14-yard pass had seemingly tied the score at 13-13 with 32 seconds left. Or had it?

Quote:
With an apparent 14-yard touchdown strike from Don Majkowski to Sterling Sharpe, the Packers were about to win the game 14-13 against the stronger Bears, led by coach Mike Ditka. The referee ruled it no touchdown because Majkowski had crossed the line of scrimmage before passing to Sharpe.


bleacher report


Quote:
The winning drive was no waltz down Lambeau Field. Majkowski had two passes tipped at the line and four others fell incomplete. But he did connect on six attempts, saving the best, the 14-yarder to Sharpe, for last.


even the Chicago Tribune


Quote:
4th Packers Sterling Sharpe 14 yard pass from Don Majkowski (Chris Jacke kick) 13 14

best source is the box score

Ergo no penalty.

Watching the replay, i think he wasn't past the LOS.

The game where the Packers "got away with one" was the game against the Baltimore Colts back in the early 1960's.
Don Chandler (i'm pretty sure it was him) clearly shanked a field goal, which the refs called "good".
It tied the game, and allowed the Packers to win in overtime.
That game was the one that made the NFL lenghten the goal posts by i believe 10 feet, to make it easier to tell if a FG was good or bad.

The LOS is like the endzone in reverse. All of the ball and the player throwing the ball have to be beyond it in order for it to be illegal.

If the tape from Majkowski's shoe is still just touching the plane of the LOS, he technically isn't beyond it.

According to the rule, he was still not beyond the lOS.
