If you thought the controversy about the brutal missed pass interference call that arguably cost the New Orleans Saints a chance at the Super Bowl was over, think again. Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman, who admitted after the game he was blatantly trying to interfere with Saints receiver TommyLee Lewis on the play so as to not give up a touchdown, now says that the ball was tipped -- or at least, that somebody else on the field said the ball was tipped.

Here's the exact phrasing, per The Athletic's Vincent Bonsignore:

The supporting evidence for the theory that the ball was tipped appears to come from the following video: 

That video does not really show a clear view of the ball actually being tipped -- just a freeze-frame of the ball being above Michael Brockers' left hand. Other angles, of course, contradict the idea the ball was tipped. 

Here's the thing, though: Even if the ball had been tipped, it doesn't matter! Robey-Coleman blasted Lewis with a helmet-to-helmet hit. So even though a pass interference penalty would be negated by a tipped pass, the personal foul would not have. And we know the NFL agrees the hit was helmet-to-helmet because the league fined Robey-Coleman nearly $27K earlier this week. 

Neither the fine nor the apparent admission several NFL figures made to Saints coach Sean Payton that the call(s) were missed really rectifies anything, of course, but they do render Robey-Coleman's contention that the ball was tipped irrelevant.
