Differing views on pass interference call

Did Cleveland Browns wide receiver Brian Robiskie push off on Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb on a potentially game-altering play in the third quarter of the Ravens' 20-10 victory Sunday?

Robiskie, whose 42-yard catch was waived off after getting flagged for offensive pass interference, said he did no such thing.

"I am not going to agree with the official who [made the call] against me," he said. "I was trying to tell him that sometimes your hands are out there and it might look like it, but that isn't always what it is. Unfortunately, that's the way the official ruled it, so you have to go with it."

Naturally, Webb begged to differ."When the ball went up in the air, I thought I was going to get an interception," he said. "He pushed me and gave me enough that I couldn't jump. So when I did hit the ground, I had to get up and tell the ref that he pushed me. I was lucky I got it. I've just got to get better. If a guy is going to push off on me, they're not going to call it every time. It'll get me ready for the next time."

Webb did grab his second interception of the season, picking off rookie quarterback Colt McCoy on Cleveland's opening drive of the game. Webb credited the pass rush with forcing McCoy to throw early.

"With the play called, I knew there was going to be a big rush, and with the D-line getting to the rookie quarterback all game, I knew he was going to get it off as quick as possible," Webb said. "And he made some hand signals that kind of gave me an idea of what he might run. All that was, was good ball skills. I made a good play, but I couldn't have done it without them boys getting to him all game. They played a great game up front."
