I have seen the front angle on that. Jennings caught the ball with one of Tate's hand on it and pulled everything to his chest like he should. Then he falls with his feet hitting the ground.

he should have knocked the freaking ball away

That's what I'm thinking too. But the Lions proved that don't always work either

you play the percentages, how many times have you seen someone catch the ball in that situation compared to how many times the ball is knocked away harmlessly. it's like poker, you dont always win when you have pocket aces like you should

Mike Sando, ESPN.com ‏@espn_nfcwest NFL: "The aspects of the play that were reviewable included if the ball hit the ground and who had possession of the ball."

useless statement
The fact that they could review possession and still got it wrong is a f**kin joke

Some thoughts....
1) Clearly an interception and anyone thinking that this was a simultaneous catch is nuts. Pictures don't lie
2) The ref who called the TD clearly did not have the best look. The back judge who really had the only good look called it an interception.

3) and most important... the real failure was by the NFL replay officials who could have easily overturned the call and done the right thing. Anyone could see
that the official making the TD call was out of position and that the proper call was an interception. Still can't believe this call was not overturned.

Possession isn't reveiwable believe it or not on a scoring play. Idiotic, but true.

EDIT: Apparently I was misinformed, how do you not overturn that?

Replay Official Howard Slavin stopped the game for an instant replay review. The aspects of the play that were reviewable included if the ball hit the ground and who had possession of the ball. In the end zone, a ruling of a simultaneous catch is reviewable. That is not the case in the field of play, only in the end zone.

So the review judge fck up too. Wow. I was giving that dude a pass because I thought he can't review possession nor the simultaneous catch is reviewable. They are right... it always takes more than one fck ups to equal a disaster.

jennings never had his feet on the ground as tate grabbed the ball and also got possession. how can you call that an interception 10 feet in the air? 2 feet on the ground guys.

Tate did not maintain possession going to the ground, he took one hand off...... even before that, one hand was one jennings hand.

forget simultaneous catch, Tate NEVER had full control of the ball. Jennings had both hands on the ball, went to the ground, and brought the ball to his chest.

you guys gotta put the call into perspective. real time and in person, its tough to tell who came down with it and who had possession or if he had 1 hand or 2 hands on, but it wasn't an interception when Jennings caught the ball initially at the top of his jump. we're all making this call based on the multiple slow-mo replay we have seen of the game. The ruling on the field was made and it was tough to over-turn with that evidence.

The play went to review.



and yes. there was enough evidence to overturn.

I actually agree with this. Remember Calvin Johnson's TD that was called back? If that same play had happened in this game, on this stage. People would be making a massive deal about it just like they are with this play. That being said, it wasn't the only glaring miss the refs made on this night. While our regular guys are pretty terrible, these knuckleheads are s**t stains on the regular ref's trousers.

Also interesting to note. My cousin was at this game and he claims that not one replay of the touchdown was played on the jumbotron. It sounds like even the guys running the show there knew it was b******t.

Actually the Calvin Johnson play was not an error by the official. It was a horrible rule.
