JJ caught it then broke the plane before losing control.

Dez caught the ball and when he went to the gound (inside the 2 or 1 yard line, I believe) he kind of trapped the ball and it moved.

When you catch a ball short of the goal line, but in mid-air cross the plane before you lose control it should be a TD.

The people comparing the two as if they are the same are completely wrong. JJ should have scored the game winner.

There is not one fan or person whose ever watched a football game anywhere in this country in the entire history of the game who would not say... rules aside... that James did not catch the ball and score...

....except the NFL rulebook.

The game sucks

The people running the game suck.

Watched with my friend from Boston, who is a Pats fan. No lie, his words:

We knew what a catch was before we had replay to get it right! Thank God I lived before replay ruined the sport. Lynn Swann's Super Bowl X highlight reel, overturned upon further review, Immaculate Reception? Just an overturned TD in a 7-6 loss. It's not because of this loss, I've hated review since it started and it only gets more invasive every year.

I know, I know James wasn't considered a RB yet right? He didn't secure the fucking ball then take 2 steps right?

Fuck that!

I'm with Kodiak...I'm of the opinion that if you can try and reach out to stretch the ball across the goal line, you've secured it.

I know the stupid rulebook sees it differently.

...more apt comparison is to Santonio Holmes early in '08 AFCCG vs. Baltimore...almost exactly the same.
