Replay losing support by the day

Brian Billick's desire to do away with replay, at least in its current form, isn't an unpopular opinion lately.

The Ravens-Broncos game didn't offer much in the way of excitement on the field, but after the game there were fireworks provided by Baltimore coach Brian Billick. The vocal Billick was livid that replay played a part in two "catches" by tight end Todd Heap, including one touchdown grab, being ruled incompletions.

The first disputed catch was originally called a touchdown, but after coach Mike Shanahan challenged whether Heap had possession of the ball, replay took away the six points. Billick further fumed when a long first-down reception was ruled incomplete and his challenge failed to overturn the initial call.

The sting wasn't taken out of his run-in with replay after his team triumphed, and he told reporters: "Get rid of the whole damn thing because it doesn't work. Move on."
