    He took 3 steps with the ball and dove for the endzone. Had the ball when he rolled over let it go and caught it again. That was 100% no doubt a catch. Only you and that idiot Collingsworth think it wasnt.

    Don’t get me wrong, I think it was definitely a catch. I’m just saying according to that stupid rule it shouldn’t have been, he caught the ball and when he turned he started going towards the ground which would mean he would need to complete the process. I’ve seen that call go the other way a lot.

    But he took 3 steps bruh. 3! No way that wasn't a catch and the guy for Pitt got hosed cause that was a catch too

    Collingsworth had to have a pile of money on NE the way he was carrying on about it

    It wasn’t just that Jessie James catch there have been a plethora of others throughout the last 4 or 5 seasons. I applaud the refs for making that call because to me, if you catch the ball and make a football move you turn into a runner and once the ball breaks the plane it’s over, but the NFL has been very, very inconsistent on what a catch is or isn’t.

    Yeah I know. I just don't see how they overturn that one. The "process" was complete when he turned, took 3 steps and a dive.

    I don’t disagree but if the rule says the process isn’t complete unless the ball is controlled to the ground and he was going towards the ground before the 3 steps, it wouldn’t have surprised me if that would have been overturned. I’m glad it wasn’t because it was a fucking catch as far as I’m concerned.
