Man in the box! | by Jay

Instant Replay makes it way to Heinz Field. Here's the rules:

  • Reviews are triggered by an observer in the press box. The plays are reviewed on video tape directly from the television network broadcasting the game (in this case, ABC).
  • A play can be reviewed only if the observer in the box decides to take a look at it before the ball is snapped again.
  • Pass interference calls are not subject to review under the Big East's instant replay setup. Among the other non-reviewable calls are holding, offside, personal fouls, illegal blocks, face mask, taunting or roughing the passer or kicker.
No word if Joey Mack and the rest of the Z-105 Morning Crew get to weigh in on the call.
