Lions got robbed man!! That was a clear catch IMO. It costs the Lions the game and it costs me some key points in Fantasy Football too! But Megatron shoulda never let hit the ball hit the ground once he came down that way there woulda been no doubt! Oh well who cares!

horrible call. at this rate, "the catch" would have been ruled an incompletion because of the spike.

thats the point by definition of the rule book he never maintained possession through the action of the catch...........he made the catch but he let the ball touch the ground
Yes, the ball touched the ground. AFTER he clearly caught it and maintained possession and let go of it as he was getting up. The catch was completed.

I don't see how anyone can possibly argue that those refs don't deserve to have to catch an arrow in the neck, Robin Hood style.

well if u go by the exact rules "the player must have complete control of the ball after hitting/falling to the ground" so really he needed to hold on to it to be a catch.
Not if it's in the endzone..

Once you get possession with 2 feet down, it's a TD... Dude fell afterwards.. the ball got knocked out.. AFTER THAT..

s**t's not even debatable IMO.

yes and no to an extent, when they fall down/go down in the endzone, u still have to show that u have possession after going to the ground. in which case it was a jump ball and he had to come down with the ball with complete control of the ball

This was the worst call ever...If that's the case, that catch that Santonio Holmes made to beat the Cardinals in the Super Bowl should have been called incomplete...

the point is he didn't have control of the ball by rule so even if he is in the endzone per the rule he did not have full control because he went to the ground and in that action the ball touched the ground. if it were me I would have given him the score but you people clearly have no idea of what the rule states. had he never went to the ground then it would have been a TD but he went to the ground continuing the action of the catch and thus allowing the ball to touch the ground

chicago fans like you are the only idiots saying this. Reguardless it was horrible, bears dont deserve s**t, but i guess the league rewards teams for nothing.

Of course the head honcho of NFL slappies Mike Pereira is gonna ride or die with WHATEVER the refs do and he'll NEVER question a rule. Some men are gutless cowards and he's one of them along with any analyst/commentator that agrees with that call in fear or NFL backlash, namely Joe Buck.

Only an idiot or a Bears fan can try and rationalize that nonsense. What part about catching a ball, getting two feet, an a.ss, a knee and an elbow down isn't maintaining possession? He let go of the ball GETTING UP. What WR have you ever seen that catches the ball, goes to the ground and continues to cradle the ball until the refs takes it from his hands?
Rules are rules,his act of catching the ball which consists of many motions wasn't completed even though he had the ball in his hands.Stupid rule but it is what it is, this ain't the first time it's happened and aint the last time it will.....unless the rule is changed.
