He had that ball in his palm all the way to the ground.

By rule, it is incomplete as he did not control the ball all the way to through the catch.

I'm not a big fan of the rule, though.

This isn't the best example, but there are some truly remarkable catches that are ruled incomplete because they aren't controlled "through the catch." I think it's applied way too strictly sometimes...

According to the new rule it's incomplete which contradicts the rushing rule that the ground can't cause a fumble. I think they need to make the rules reflect each other.

Control. He had it.

The ball was on his chest when he landed and was contacted in the endzone.

It's a catch IMHO
