Chuck Pagano said today that the NFL admitted to him that the officials were wrong to reverse a call that the Colts recovered a fumble. That wasn't the only call the officials blew on Sunday night that hurt the Colts, either.

Almost anybody with a TV and half-decent eye-sight could see that a fumble call in the Colts vs. Texans game that was ruled to be recovered by the Colts was inconclusive at best. The NFL agreed, leaving just referee Bill Vinovich as the only person to have thought otherwise. After video review, Vinovich inexplicably reversed the call, giving the ball back to the Texans.

Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said today that the NFL admitted to him that it was the wrong call. It doesn't do much now, other than confirm what our eyes already told us: that it was inconclusive, at best.

Here's the situation: the Colts were kicking off after just scoring a field goal, still down 14-3 with just a few minutes left in the first half. Houston's Keshawn Martin took the kickoff 30 yards to the Texans' 29 yard line, where he was hit by LaVon Brazill. Brazill forced a fumble, and with the ball on the ground Brazill made an absolutely brilliant play. Seeing the ball headed towards the sidelines, Brazill dove and hit the ball back away from the sidelines. According to rules, if any part of Brazill was touching the sidelines while at the same time touching the ball, it meant the ball was dead there. That wasn't what was called, though, and David Reed recovered the fumble for the Colts, giving them the ball at the 31 yard line. It was a great play and simply incredible effort from Brazill - and of course, the play was under review, as all turnovers are. It was clear to all of us, however, that the replay was not clear. For a call to be overturned, there has to be conclusive evidence that the original call was wrong. There was no such thing in this instance. Not at all. There was no way to tell, and everybody was stunned when Vinovich reversed the call.
