audit2 Posted October 22, 2007 Share Posted October 22, 2007 white's lost td not open to reviewby steve wychethe atlanta journal-constitutionpublished on: 10/22/07 new orleans it was a play teeming with potential controversy that denied the falcons a touchdown that could have proven pivotal in their 22-16 loss to host new orleans sunday.wide receiver roddy white tightroped down the left sideline after catching a deep pass from joey harrington early in the fourth quarter and raced into the end zone for what would have given atlanta a 20-14 lead.however, white was ruled out of bounds at the 7-yard line for a 32-yard gain. he begged coach bobby petrino to challenge the call and petrino seemed inclined to, until he was informed the play could not be reviewed."i thought roddy was in on that catch," petrino explained. "they didn't call it that way. it was not a reviewable play. once they call him out of bounds, you can't review it."atlanta settled for a 21-yard morten andersen field goal and a 16-14 lead.
