The replay after the commercial clearly showed his foot barely touched the white line.

I hate it, but it was the right call.

Was a TD. Heel touched down. Well before any notional toe touch of a blade of grass.

Some will also argue the other knee touched down before all that too.

A part of the foot isn't the entire foot.

The entire foot has to touch inbounds, not simply part of it.

It was the right call.

What about when you touch your toes on a catch? That's part of the foot isn't it?

what about the toe drag? that's acceptable, and even less than a heel

Yes it is, and if any other part of the foot land out of bounds its an incomplete pass

If your 2nd foot lands OB, its an incomplete pass. This was a no-brainer. It was the right call no question.
