This I thought was a terrible call. Levens was going backwards or at the very least had been stopped, and an O-lineman pushed him in. I thought that wasn't legal anyways (or was that carrying someone in?).
It's illegal to push or carry anyone forward.
However, the O-lineman actually did a "block" on a Falcon player which happened to push him into the direction of the goal line. Not exactly illegal, but not exactly a block either.
Regardless, the forward momentum was stopped and it should have been blown dead.
BTW, is anyone else bothered by the "play selection" stats they're showing? Just because Vick ends up running the ball doesn't make it a run play selection. Stupid.
