It was definitely a catch and he was definitely in bounds.
Shouldn't have gotten that far downfield, however.
The 49ers had a TD lead, basically, 4 pts, with Favre pinned at his own 20, no TOs, ninety seconds on the clock. And Singletary said - okay, I'll give you a practice field to work with. See if you can beat us. A backup QB could have done the same, AND beat Roman who was beat on the play and couldn't push the receiver out.
Singletary sez - I want WINNERS! But he didn't want to win.
Singletary sez - FINISH! But they didn't, today. And he said in his remarks after the game - WE . . didn't finish! And he was right.
I'm sick of that catch not because it wasn't dramatic - but because it needn't have been. He should never have been that far downfield able to make that pass!
It was a fluke, and had we gotten a 1st down with the O then they would have never got the ball back, it's the same thing that happened in Arizona, except this time it bit us in the ass...
