It's been eight days since Zach Miller's-touchdown-that-wasn't and it's still a buzzworthy topic in the NFL world.
Miller is set to be released from a New Orleans hospital Monday morning after needing emergency surgery on his knee during that controversial endzone catch/non-catch.
In the week-plus since that incident, the NFL has not walked back its bizarre decision to overturn Miller's TD against the Saints in Week 8. In fact, the league has actually doubled down, releasing a video last week where head of officiating Alberto Riveron claimed the evidence was definitive.
Mike Pereira feels differently.
The former NFL VP of officiating currently can be seen on FOX broadcasts breaking down the rules and judgements during games.
Pereira joined the "Pardon My Take" podcast released Monday morning and admitted some officials around the NFL know the Miller TD call was a mistake, but won't say that publicly.
PFT Commenter and Big Cat asked Pereira if the NFL has officially apologized for the Miller TD reversal.
"No, they've done the opposite," Pereira said. "They have officially tried to sell the fact that they were correct with their ruling on the field, which I'm sorry to say — I don't want to call it laughable, but close to laughable.
"I get the fact that they want to try to defend what they're going to do, but there's no part of the Jet play against New England that was clear and obvious to overturn. It's a dangerous trend that we have seen.
"At least I'm happy to say this Sunday's games, they didn't pull any of those. They stayed with the calls that were made on the field. But they're trying to really try to justify their mistake when we're hearing even internally from some people in New York that they do agree it should'nt've been reversed."
Pereira said there are three plays in his mind this season that should never have been reversed — including the Miller TD and the aforementioned Week 6 Jets-Patriots call — that 50 drunk dudes in a bar could clearly see.
Pereira hopes that NFL has gotten beyond that after a Week 9 with no such issues.
