Completely agree! He had possession, tucked in to his body, and both feet in bounds and only lost it when he hit the ground. I'm no ref, but doesn't that constitute a catch? Kinda like "ground can't cause a fumble"? I;m surprised it didn't get overturned in review and that the announcers didn't see it that way and make a comment to that effect. Seemed pretty straightforward to me, and I'm not one of those fans that thinks every call should go our way either.
I thought it was a catch also. Until I saw the replay umpteen times. His knee hit out of bounds just slightly before his second foot came down.
it was a great catch and one that shows we need to continue to direct alot of passes to this kid.
however it was not a catch, i'm sorry i wish it was but it wasn't.
A completetion is only complete when you have COMPLETE control, losing the ball at any point does not constitue complete control therefor no catch.
