  • If they call it like that all season I will lose my mind.  If that wasn't a catch and fumble I don't know what one is.  He caught the ball, hurdled a defender, then fumble when h got hit.

    Before long the rule will state "the player must control and possess the ball for 5 yards or more."

    Rediculous interpretation of the rules.

    Rant over

    It's pretty much 5 yards as it is now. The "football move" that they look for usually takes about 5 yards to make.

    Wish they had a better way to determine a catch.

  • Referees have to get in season form as well. I don't see how it wasn't a catch, but I think they get more right than wrong. Clearly missed it though.

  • The refs make big misses every preseason,  getting a lot more of the calls right this year than last.  That's a tough job and it takes a while for them to get up to speed just like it does the players.

    Was it reviewed?

  • Have a hard time watching the NFL for the past few years for this very reason. I focus only on college.  It has been said that election killed football last year ratings wise. I think the downward trend will continue with kneeling, nobody knowing what a catch is anymore, concussions and parents not wanting their kids to play, there fore not allowing them to watch. 

    That and my disdain for ESPN ... well, there are too many reasons not to watch especially when college ball is oh so dandy

    Yes.  It was called a catch/fumble then the review overturned it.  That made it worse

  • Can you imagine hogville if a call like that cost us a game?

  • Why do you even waste your time one the 3.4 hour review extravaganza called the NFL? I cut down two years ago and quit last year. Screw 32 billionaires.

    Yet at 3.4 hours it is still shorter than the 4.5+ hour bubble screen/review fest that college has become. And I am no fan of the NFL, but if time is your gripe, it has college beat hands down.

    Yeah I can imagine it.  I see Hogville's reaction EVERY time a call goes against us, whether it was correct or not...

    Just imagine how bad it would be if we had TWO calls get incorrectly overturned in the same game, and it cost us the game which cost us an SEC West title and at least an outside shot at a BCS Championship?

    Oh, wait.
