I heard an explanation of the rule from the former head of officiating in the NFL, and from that explanation, it was the right call.

But it's like the Tom Brady and the Tuck Rule -- they got the call right according to the rule, but the rule is absolutely terrible.

Default Re: the lions got jobbed.

the rule:

Quote:
"If a player goes to the ground in the act of catching a pass (with or without contact by an opponent), he must maintain control of the ball after he touches the ground, whether in the field of play or the end zone. If he loses control of the ball, and the ball touches the ground before he regains control, the pass is incomplete. If he regains control prior to the ball touching the ground, the pass is complete."
he had complete control the whole time, i thought.

The question was whether or not he had the ball when it hit the ground and het let it go (very quickly) or if it popped loose.

The officials apparently ruled the latter, and based on that judgment, the rule says it's incomplete. I guess this rule is designed to eliminate judgment calls in terms of whether someone had the ball long enough, but that also eliminates situations like this one where CJ had the ball in clear control for a *long* time before the ball hit the ground.

BS rule and an equally BS call. IMO, Megatron clearly had possession and the only time he didn't was when he let go of the ball to celebrate.

Nothing new. See Raiders Murphy last year. They say you must end up with the ball basically until you hand it to the ref when you catch a TD pass and are untouched.

Stupid, I know, but thats the way they call it.

There was a point where Johnson had both hands on the ball which should have been enough for the touchdown.

The halftime of the Skins and Cowboys just said the rule was interpreted correctly, and its the rule's fault.

Either way, it STINKS. That should be a TD.
