    If you want to be sure your "catch" counts, it's best to hold on to the ball.  If you don't hold on to the ball, you're at the mercy of the refs.  You can argue all you want that the refs should have called it one way or the other . . . but the ball came out, and if you let the ball come out, you subject yourself to the refs judgment.  

    If Evans wanted to make sure that "catch" counted, he needed to hold on to the ball.  He didn't do that (thanks to a great play by Sterling Moore) and so he and all his sympathizers really can't complain about the result.  If you want your "catch" to count, hold on to the ball.

    Are some trollish idiots still arguing about this play?

    Clearly an incomplete pass. Not even close, in fact, by today's rules.

    If you really slow it down--and I'm talking frame-by-frame--it's obvious that the ball is starting to "move" before Evans' foot even makes minimal contact with the ground. By the time the toes are down, the ball is already coming out and not just moving.

    The rule is clear about this: if the tapping of the feet and the loss of possession are simultaneous, it's an incomplete pass. In this case, it's not even simultaneous. The frame-by-frame advance clearly shows the ball beginning to move--thus indicating no possession--before the toes even touch the ground.

    Incomplete pass. Great play by Moore. Endless irritation for the trolls, no doubt.

    it wasnt a touchdown in real time or when you slow it down.....the ball was coming out before he had the second foot down, doesnt matter if the ball is fully out, if you dont have full possession with two feet down, it isnt a catch

    Yes, this is not the same as needing to just break the plane of the endzone. In the case of running it in, possession is already established. A receiver must show possession with both feet down in bounds for a TD to be called.


    Correct me if I'm wrong, but since it was not called a score, a review does not take place. Only a challenge could have caused a review on a non-scoring play.

    Exactly. Any "movement" of the ball while the receiver has it in his hands indicates no possession, or at least indicates that he hadn't secured the ball yet.

    It wasn't even close, which is why the replay official decided not to buzz down to the Referree on the field for a formal review. He could see on his replay screen that it clearly was an incomplete pass. I know people like to rip these guys (the officials) all the time, but they do know and understand the rules better than any of us do.
