OK i agree
And in all actuality, it SHOULD have been a catch and fumble out of bounds at the 3. But then we have that pesky Calvin Johnson rule LOL
There are only two possible outcomes in this play. If the refs ruled that Crabtree made a football move with the ball, he is no longer defenseless and the result is a fumble out of bounds at the three. If the refs rule that Crabtree was defenseless because there was no football move it's an incomplete pass and a helmet to helmet penalty. There exists no gray area for the ruling to be an incomplete pass without a penalty.
