Mike Carey Had Confusing, Wrong Explanation of Tom Brady Pylon Play

On this Tom Brady running play, which was ruled on the field not to be a touchdown and was challenged by Bill Belichick, Mike Carey initially said that a body part would need to be down in the end zone for it to count as a score. As Mike Pereira, who is a much better explainer for these sorts of things, tweeted:

(Carey did kind of say those things as well, but the body part thing was, um, not correct.)

After the ruling on the field stood, Carey said he would have reversed it. What do we reckon his batting average is on these explanations?
