In my opinion the rule is bad and that should be a complete pass. However, with the rule that is in place, the refs got it right after reviewing it. Can't blame the refs for Dallas losing. It was a close game and they just got edged out at the end by a very strong GB team. Rodgers was clearly not 100% and I can only assume he will be the same or worse next week in Seattle. I will be rooting HARD for the packers but think they really only have about a 25% chance of winning with Rodgers hobbling around in Seattle.

So, watching the replay again of the Dez catch non-catch, there really isn't a definitive view or the ball touching the ground. I think the refs sometimes have a quick trigger finger to reverse calls. Remember the original ruling was complete, but IMO, there was just assumption that the ball hit the ground.

I think the play of the game wasn't that one, but the caused fumble by Peppers as that saved a TD and prevented the Cowboys from going up by 14.

Here's what Texas Governor elect, Greg Abbott, had to say (tweeted) about the Dallas loss.

"Robbery reported in Green Bay. Perpetrators last seen wearing black & white stripped shirts & black hats"

Their previous crime scene was in Arlington the week before, where they were seen picking up flags.

You cant be serious. Its clear as day that the ball hit the ground. Nobody even disputed whether or not it hit the ground. The argument was what the rule was.

And interpretations with respect to what constitutes a "football move".

Meanwhile, Denver continues to sleepwalk.

Wow! Denver played those final two minutes like they didn't care anymore and just wanted to go home. Where was that Manning magic displayed vs. Seattle in the final minutes of that game earlier this season?

Unless you're a Cowboy fan I don't see how you say Bryant made a football move. He never had his feet under him.

The fumble by the punt returner in the Denver/Indy game was a horrible call. That guy couldn't tell you what state he was in let alone make a football move. I have no idea how he was ruled to have possession.

Yep. That play.

But the bad reversal probably didn't change to outcome of the game anyhow.

The Colts dominated most of the game. It was my lock for the week.

Manning looks old and tired. He cant throw more than 15 yards with any accuracy. Every deep ball wobbles. Hes looked bad for 6 weeks now.

Yes Denver got beat. Bad call really made no difference.

I've always been a Manning fan but maybe it's time for him to quit tossing passes on the football field and stick to tossing pizza's at his Papa John Pizza franchises.

We may have just seen him in his last pro game... Then again, maybe not

If you didn't make a "football move" since your original prediction, it might be overturned.

Maybe, after Seattle's nice performance last night, he just realized he didn't want to face the LOB a third time.

Okay. I saw a view of the ball hitting the ground. I wouldn't say 100% though that it wasn't a catch. The one thing which is almost unanimous is that's a dumb rule about having to make a football move.
