It wasn't even close to a catch and I am not a fan of either team.I hope both never win another super bowl but I would root for either over any nfc north team or the cowboys.. not a fan of seattle either . Amazing game though .. Wish the lions were as good as Pittsburgh and New England.

He didn't control that ball to the ground . That part of the rule is good. He bobbled it and needs to hold on to the ball through the stretch .

The ground caused the bobble, ball never left contact with either of his arms/hands

The rule needs tweaking

The rule is complete BS. So a guy can barely nick the "plane" of the end zone, and that's a TD.

But a guy grabs the ball, falls down, and it wiggles slightly at the end and it's not a TD.

Exactly. Ball clearly breaks the invisible plane of the end zone before he has come to the ground with it. Thank god all my friends watch football. I canít imagine watching the game with kids and them asking me to explain what is a catch.

Jason Garret, knowing his season is done with a loss, calls a fake punt, gets the 1st down, and scores a TD on the drive. If Caldwell had the balls to do similar things we would have a playoff win or at least a home playoff game by now.

My oldest kid asked why that wasn't a TD, I said simply "fuck if I know." Parenting 101.
