What makes Tony Corrente even more of a moron is that he screwed it up even after seeing the replay, and he should be disciplined by the league. But, the bigger issue here is that Michael Clayton can't catch a cold. He should have caught that ball, and, like so many others, he couldn't hang on. And the most frustrating thing is that the coaching staff and front office don't seem to understand how BAD this Guy is!! He's GARBAGE!! [banghead]

I know it's not politically correct but I'd have been all for giving Morris a lifetime contract if he had punched Back Judge 119 right in the face for throwing that flag.

tony's understanding of the rule is correct...his eyesight however must be lacking. i mean he had the ball and got hit then made contact with the ground then the ball popped out.

The officiating crews seem to go out of their way not to overturn bad calls made by their own. I'm calling for an independent replay ref appointed by the NFL at every game. Take these decisions out of the hands of the guys who eat breakfast together. Let the on field officials make their call and if there is a replay, don't let them have anything to do with it.

The problem with that thought is that he catches it, gets the feet down, is contacted and falls on his butt. That's it, play over this isn't a case where the man is trying to maintain control without contact. This is classic ground causing a fumble stuff.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

(On why was the play not ruled a completion upon review) – “Because the player in question, the player who was possessing the ball in the air, as he started to come down, was hit. As he is coming down, he is now going to the ground to complete a catch and by rule, if he’s going to the ground to complete a catch, he has to maintain possession of the ball completely through the entire process of hitting the ground and thereafter showing control. As he went to the ground, basically right when he went to the ground, the ball popped out, and went right into the arms of the Miami player. The ball had never touched the ground.”

THIS is where the ref is wrong. The replay clearly shows Clayton coming to the ground on both feet with control of the ball. That completes the catch. Then contact knocks him the ground. As dalbuc just said, he is not coming from the air to the ground, trying to maintain control.

I should be used to the Bucs getting screwed like this, but it sucks every time.

Falling = a football move.

Falling - after contact - which is the important part of the play.

Isn't it two steps and a "football move?"
