The Baffling: Eric Fisher’s False Start

Until coaches film is released, I’ll withhold judgment on Fasano’s pass interference call. The broadcast only showed one replay, and it was in slow motion.

However, during Kansas City’s final drive of the afternoon, Eric Fisher, who arguably authored his best outing of the season,  also might’ve gotten the short end of the stick.

On 2nd-and-10 with 19 seconds remaining, last year’s No. 1 overall pick was flagged for a false start.

Looking back at the tape, the flinch of No. 93, Calais Campbell, definitely provokes Fisher’s movement. But in order for the defense to be penalized, Campbell would’ve had to have breached the neutral zone (the length between both ends of the football). In this case, without a view from the sideline, that’s impossible to determine.

It’s ridiculous. It’s biased. It’s football.
