When you consider the final score, it's hard to make the case that any one play undid the Ravens in Thursday night's ugly NFL opener against the Denver Broncos. But it isn't very difficult to determine the moment when that intangible pendulum called momentum swung back so hard it knocked the defending Super Bowl champions all the way into next week. Maybe Peyton Manning still would have picked the Ravens secondary apart if John Harbaugh had thrown his replay flag and ended Denver's first drive of the second half.

When Orioles left fielder Nelson Cruz ran through first base on a close play April 19 at Fenway Park and was called out by first base umpire Ted Barrett, it sparked a chain of events that has become common in the major leagues this season. After almost one month of the new instant replay system, there have been plenty of praises and criticisms as teams, umpires and Major League Baseball continue to search for the best ways to reach accurate calls using replay. "I think when it's all said and done, people will like having it in the game," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

Major League Baseball reportedly is preparing to experiment with video replay to affirm or overturn disputed home run calls, which got me to thinking. What if a system like that had been in effect Oct. 9, 1996? If that date doesn't ring a bell, it should. That was the infamous night when young New York Yankees fan Jeffrey Maier reached over the fence in right field to deflect Derek Jeter's long fly ball into the stands at Yankee Stadium. Umpire Rich Garcia ruled it a home run - which cost the Orioles an eighth-inning lead in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series - though replays and still photos seemed to prove the ball would have been caught by O's outfielder Tony Tarasco and, therefore, the play should have been ruled fan interference.

It took five games, but the new video replay system finally debuted at Oriole Park on Saturday night when Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons challenged a ruling by umpire Chris Conroy that Edwin Encarnacion was pulled off the bag on a close play at first base. Orioles second baseman Steve Lombardozzi dropped a bunt toward third base and Blue Jays pitcher Drew Hutchison pounced on the ball and hurried his throw to first base. The ball sailed high and Encarnacion appeared to lose contact with the bag when he extended to catch it, but it appeared he might have recontacted the bag before Lombardozzi got there.

Major League Baseball made official new rules to protect catchers from flagrant home-plate collisions. Starting this season, a runner who deviates from a direct path to the plate to initiate contact with a catcher will be called out even if the catcher loses the ball, and runners will be declared safe if the catcher blocks the plate without the ball. Orioles manager Buck Showalter and a small contingent of Orioles personnel attended a meeting on Sunday in Port Charlotte, Fla., where MLB officials briefed them on both the collision policy and the new expanded replay system.

It's not crystal clear why the NFL's instant replay system has worked so poorly the past few years. It's not even clear what specifically isn't working. But there's no doubt that it doesn't work. At the very least, it should be completely overhauled in the offseason - and if it weren't so disruptive, it ought to be done sooner. At most, it should be discarded for something else. Anything else. Except that "human element," because that wasn't good enough, either. The human element is what's making a disaster of things now. Humans are either making bad rules, enforcing them poorly, interpreting them poorly or some combination of them all. Viewers can believe what they want to believe about Santonio Holmes' catch Sunday, but referee Walt Coleman was responsible for knowing the rules, reviewing the replay and explaining his decision to the crowd, both coaches and, later, a pool reporter - and he did none of that well.

PHOENIX -- The NFL owners wrapped up their annual March meetings yesterday by approving a new version of instant replay and giving the Howard Milstein group another month to get its financing in order in its bid to buy the Washington Redskins.The version of instant replay passed by a 28-3 vote might be called "Replay Lite" because it is designed not to correct most bad calls, but only the calls that can turn around a game.Only three teams -- the Cincinnati Bengals and Arizona Cardinals, who have traditionally opposed any form of replay, and the New York Jets -- opposed it. Jets coach Bill Parcells didn't like the coach's-challenge part of the plan or the fact it's tied to timeouts.

First of all, there is no "instant" in instant replay. Secondly, all replay seems to do is invite more replay. The firestorm Ravens coach Brian Billick created last week after two replay calls went against him has flickered at several other venues this season. He isn't the only coach hopping mad about the ineffectiveness of a replay system that has been tweaked into silliness. After the Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost a Week 5 Monday night affair to the Indianapolis Colts, in part because the officials made a critical mistake allowing an illegal onside kick and because of an obscure "leaping rule" call, coach Jon Gruden was left scratching his head.

Can the Broncos get quality quarterback play from Bubby Brister or Brian Griese? Do the Jaguars have enough defense to get to the Super Bowl? Will the Vikings' dominating offense pick up where it left off last season?Those are several of the major questions on the NFL's table as another season kicks off this weekend. But every question pales next to the gigantic one everyone was asking during the exhibition season:What, exactly, are the referees watching in those instant replay booths on the sideline?

It's a good bet that some form of instant replay will return to the NFL, which saw one of its worst nightmares -- a couple of poor calls from officials -- played out on national television during Sunday's AFC playoff game.Simply put, the No-Fun League can't afford to have its officials look as bad as they did in the fiasco in San Diego, with the whole world watching through the eyes of its accomplice, television.To recap, in the third quarter of the San Diego-Miami game, Chargers running back Natrone Means scored on a 24-yard run, but replays showed that he clearly stepped out at the 2-yard line.

The Ravens may have lost the statistical battle, but they won the ones that counted. It didn't matter if Jacksonville had a sizable edge in total offense because the Ravens maintained control of their 15-10 victory over the Jaguars on Sunday by going 2-for-2 on instant-replay challenges in the third quarter. One ruling allowed the Ravens to keep a lead and the other helped them expand it. The first challenge occurred midway through the third quarter when quarterback Tony Banks threw out of his end zone and was intercepted by Jaguars end Tony Brackens.
