Cowboys Fans Makes Diagram Showing That According To Fitzgerald Catch, Dez Caught It

Just about exactly a year ago, the most controversial play went down since the tuck rule, a play that is still referenced regularly today.

With the Cowboys trailing the Packers late in the 4th, Romo fired it deep to Dez Bryant who to everyone’s apparentness, came down with the ball. But upon review, Cowboys fans everywhere were crushed and fans left perplexed at what in the world is a considered a catch in the NFL. As everyone knows, the Cowboys ended up losing that game primarily because of the overturned play.

Last night was full of controversy from the coin toss, to the hail mary, and on Larry Fitzgerald catch in particular. In the 4th quarter, Fitzgerald appeared to come down with the ball, turn up field, and then stumble and lose the ball following the run after the catch. But once again, with the NFL’s ridiculous catch rule in mind, review proved that by rule, he didn’t complete the catch. The call ended up standing to the astonishment of many, Cowboys fans making up a large majority.

Dallas fans actually made a graphic comparing the two catches and well, it’s hard to argue the point.

  1. Doesn’t matter, Patriots would have cheated them out of a win if they advanced anyway. Besides, what’s crying about it going to do now. Cowboys got a lot of other things to worry about… like medical bills…

  2. Waaaaaaa….the Cowboys wouldnt have even been in that game if the officials don’t bone the Lions the week before. I find it extremely humorous and ironic that Dallas fans can even THINK about whining about officiating.

    • From the NFL rules:

      Note 1: A player who goes to the ground in the process of attempting to secure possession (with or without contact by an opponent) must maintain control of the ball until after his contact with the ground, whether in the field of play or the end zone. If he loses control of the ball, and the ball touches the ground before he regains control, there is no possession. If he regains control prior to the ball touching the ground, it is a catch, interception, or recovery. A player is considered to be going to the ground if he does not remain upright long enough to demonstrate that he is clearly a runner.

      Dez & Fitz both failed to do this. Both were not a catch if u go by this rule. Doesn’t matter if they were contacted by a defender or not

      • If u are falling out of bounds (like Larry Fitzgerald)

        Note 2: If a player goes to the ground out of bounds (with or without contact by an opponent) in the process of attempting to secure possession at the sideline, he must maintain complete and continuous control of the ball until after his initial contact with the ground, or there is no possession.

  3. They should clearly define what a catch & a “football move” is. The way the rule is written is too vague and allows each officiating crew to apply their own judgement. Rule should be black & white to eliminate confusion.
