I've always thought I know a catch when I see it. Especially with freeze frame slow motion - if at that point you have any doubt then it's clearly not a catch.

This all really went askew when they apparently dispensed with the standard of "indisputable" evidence.

The Survive the Ground rule was easily the worst rule ever created and stands as a monument to owners Lack of football understanding. It's a shame that the Steelers and Jesse James had to be the last straw.

In my opinion, the original Catch rule from the 70's and 80's is the best. You establish control of the football and you get 2 feet on the ground and it's a catch. They never should have changed it in the first place. The first egregious change was "make a football move".

The reason why they changed it was because sometimes a guy would catch the ball and get 2 feet down and then get it knocked out and it would be called a Fumble. That rubbed some Owner wrong and they started to make a fuss. But according to the original rules, if you establish control of the football and get 2 feet down, and then Lose the football, it's a fumble, as it should be, Deal with it.

Get rid of "make a football move". Go back to Old school football.

'70's, 80's, 90's, somehow we knew what a catch was then. Can't we just go back to that?

In the endzone, both feet, knee, elbow, fucking dick down for goodness sake, on the ground for a split second...play dead Fucking touchdown. the exact same way if a runner reaches the ball over the goal line for a split second...touchdown.

Start there...

I've always wanted to see them implement the 15 yards and 1st down instead of the spot foul and 1st down. Manning, Brady, Dalton, Flacco would all have worse QB rankings.... :lol:

They have always ruled this way (except against the Pats ;) ) There are lots of plays where the WR catches the ball and get 2 feet down in the EZ then has the ball slapped away and it is called a TD.

You know which QB led the NFL in DPI yards last year?
