Jimmy Graham Pass Interference Call on Hail Mary Screws Saints, Saves 49ers (Videos)
The best game of NFL Week 10 was undoubtedly 49ers-Saints. Unless, of course, you are a Saints fan. In which case it was the biggest f#%$ing bull$&!t game of NFL Week 10 because of that motherf#%$ing bull$&!t Jimmy Graham pass interference call.
Of course, if you missed it, then right now you’re probably thinking, what motherf#%$ing bull$&!t Jimmy Graham pass interference call? So let me set it up for you.
San Francisco, desperately needing a win to keep their postseason hopes alive, got out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter, and they took a 21-10 lead into halftime. However, the Saints, winners of 11 straight at home in the Superdome, made it 21-17 in the third quarter, then took a 24-21 lead with just 1:52 left in the game. But the Niners weren’t done. After the kickoff, New Orleans had San Francisco down to their final down, a 4th and 10 from their own 22, when Colin Kaepernick came up with a huge 51 yard pass up the middle to Michael Crabtree, setting up a field goal that made it 24-24 with 44 seconds left.
Here’s where an exciting game got bonkers. Drew Brees being Drew Brees, in three plays following the Niners field goal, he moved the ball from his own 20 to the San Francisco 47. Then, with four seconds left on the clock, Brews threw a bomb into the endzone that was caught by Jimmy Graham.
The only problem? Refs ruled it offensive pass interference after a gentle push somehow sent cornerback Perrish Cox to the turf.
It was controversial to say the least. Take a look:
From there the game went into overtime, where the 49ers prevailed 27-24.
Afterward, Graham, who played four years of basketball at Miami, was NOT happy.
“It was definitely not a push-off,” he insisted. “I’m running down the field telling myself, ‘Whatever you do, don’t push off.’ It’s interesting how guys grab me everywhere on the field and I put literally two fingers on somebody and they make that kind of call. That’s why I left basketball.”
So what do you think: good call or bad call?
