It's an interesting conversation Mitch. I can't recall if the rules have changed and what exactly the rules are. That's all. We did win, but interesting controversy...

I don't get this. I've seen guys win TDs by dragging the toe, but dragging the heel is not considered a TD?? These rules get stupider every year.

Becky, I'm with you. It definitely needs clarification. I agree with both sides of the argument overall but I'm still confused with the logic behind it NOT being a catch.

Exactly what I thought. His butt hit before inbounds 1st then foot hit the ground. I still call BS it was a TD. Doesnt matter now...Saints still got the win in the end.

I dont get how you can just pass the ball over the orange pylon and get a TD (Titans QB) without getting your feet in the endzone but if you catch the ball in the endzone with your A$$ on the turf then roll or slide out of bounds, Its not a TD.
Im sorry Guys n Gals but that call was BS and the rules need to be adjusted or Fixed...however you want to phrase it.

Like I said...controversial or not, they still came away with a win!
SO....WHO DAT!!!!!
