I should just stop posting because you have schooled me so bad I can never recover.
Now that we have THAT out of the way....
Kaep ran into the endzone because he was trying to get out of the tackle box to throw the ball away. He succeeded. The refs screwed up. Why are people so determined to blame him for a mistake by the ref? I don't get it.
Marvin, I agree with you on the technicality, but perhaps Kaep could have done a better job or maybe taken a sack in that situation?
In a league where judgment calls are routinely screwed up, you never want to let the refs take charge. Any penalty in the end zone is an automatic safety.
I gotta rewatch it, but I can't recall the last time I've seen a QB get a grounding call that looked remotely like that....maybe Brees last week against us, but then again he was nowhere near the end zone.
