Could NFL challenge rule be used to uphold a bad call?(Posted by MarcusQuinn on 12/2/12 at 11:02 pm)
My son asked me an interesting question tonight. If Gary Kubiak knew that Justin Forsett was down on his touchdown run, could Kubiak have thrown a challenge flag, thereby making the play non-reviewable? Can a coach who is going to benefit from a bad call on a TD or turnover throw the challenge flag to prevent the booth review from overturning the call? I guess you would still get the 15 yard penalty, but who wouldn't take that trade?

Throw it quick, challenge too many men on the field.
