They have to change that rule to recognize that James stretching out is a move.

Bryant got robbed...then us.

Call on the field was a touchdown. How do you overturn that outside of cheating.

As soon as it took more than 10 seconds on the review it was clear they were going to find a way to overturn. This is just pure horse shit. This kind of stuff has already made me go from someone that watched anything NFL on Sundays and Mondays to watching Steelers only.

I love the Steelers but I have seen too much of this. I am getting pretty close to being done. Not saying I am gone. Not saying I am not. But its definitely close.

No.

I just believe the NFL rules on what is a catch and what isn't are completely moronic.

James made a turn, pulled the ball into his body, then extended over the line. That was a catch and a TD. Completely despicable that they overturned that call.

The ball did hit the ground. His left hand also twisted up and lost control as it hit.

By the NFL’s bullshit catch rules, I believe it was the right call. The more I watched the replays, the more I knew I wouldn’t like the result.

Only argument you might be able to make is that he caught it outside he end zone and thus, didn’t need to keep control all the way through, but I don’t believe he did the Irish jig that is necessary to establish possession in that scenario.

The rules are a disaster and need overhauled, but I think they got it right.

It’s so funny. When we were the champion dynasty in the 70’s - people would question the refs and blame everybody but themselves. Now we’ve become the pussy victims.

We have left rings on the table for years. We don’t work hard enough to be champions. On and off the field. We left a win on the field today. This year isn’t over, we will see but we left a win on the field today.

I blame the Steelers- nobody else.

When did the ball hit the ground? James's fingers were under the ball. And, even giving you that one, the receiver was tackled (right hand pulling him backwards) before the ball got there.

I understand where you are going. But James kept one hand on and under the ball ... he never lost possession. Even if you go with the rule is the rule.

Also, if you have to look at something that long to make a decision, you don't have indisputable evidence. It means you are thinking your way to the result you want to reach.

Doesn't matter..listen to the ref: receiver didn't survive the ground and jj DID NOT

Its dumb...there's zero common sense being applied but thats the rule, like it or lump it

James made a turn, extended the ball upfield past the goaline ... to me the rules say that's a catch because he satisfies both tucking away and turning upfield. If the arms as he was catching it lead into the end zone, then he must complete the catch, but since he caught the ball, and turned upfield with an extension to try and score - I don't see how he's not a runner at that point.

Yep. But like I said — call on field was touchdown. If you had a question as to whether the ball hit the ground or whether it was incomplete, then well how can you overturn. It’s like the league doesn’t understand the standard of review.

This. Its ridiculous we have to litigate these goddamn athletic plays down to the thousandth of a frame. Unless its clear he fumbles it into the EZ this should have no business overturning the call.

Fuck off. If the ball never hits the ground, then it’s impossinle to be incomplete.
