Why the Edwards catch should not have been over turned

    Yep. Braylon doesn't catch either of these.


    The question with Tate's catch in Miami - yes he's on the ground and he's been touched by the player... but before he's caught the ball. From the moment that he has possession of the ball I don't think anyone touches him whilst he's on the ground.

    If a player was blocked and fell to the ground, caught the ball on the ground somehow and got up and ran it in... is he down by contact?

  • I don't even know how Pereira is employed in his current position. Seriously, he's supposed to be the "expert" on all the close calls around the league, but I haven't heard him once say a call should be over turned, or that there is EVER a bad call.

    All he does is stick up for the refs. No drama and no entertainment there. Fire his ass.

    yeah, there is something sacred about a field you can actually get dirty on

    He has his arms under the ball and is touched by the player. The full control of the ball may come as he is off the guy but as I see it the ball makes impact with tate when he is touched by the other player.
