Not that it would have mattered, the game was over at that point anyway. But why was the call a safety? Can one of you rules guys pleae explain this? As I see it. Brady fumbled. The ball was illegally batted into the end zone by Polamalu(sp?). It passed through the end zone without being recovered. The "impetus" for the ball being knocked through the end zone was provided by Polamalu. Shouldn't that be a touchback?
