Wasn’t James’ hand under the ball? Very surprised that was reversed. His right hand looked like it was under the ball the whole time.

That's clearly what it looked like on every replay they showed on TV. Not sure if they had another angle in the replay center, or if I'm just missing something.

Steelers just got freaking robbed bad.  Caught, went on one knee and extended (your football move) then broke the plane and plays dead doesnt matter if it bobbled on the ground.

 

 

The NFL doesn't regard its own rules whenever they feel like it...

that's not a catch under the current rules. that's stupid.

 

Any other situation the play is over the moment the ball crosses the line. Here the ball crosses the line and he has control and the catch yet somehow what he does after that affects the play. 

 

stupid. ********. rule. 

 

It is absolutely ridiculous. That was a catch. And this comes from someone who was facing James in the semifinals. The rules of what is or isn't a catch in the NFL are atrocious.

100% correct. Yet if he broke the plane and the ball got knocked out by a defender while the ball was in his hands after crossing the plane, they would rule it a TD. No consistency whatsoever. It makes it really tough to enjoy the NFL. That should have been ruled a TD. That call just completely changed the landscape of the AFC race.

exactly. the problem is these players are so athletic and graceful, it doesn't appear to be 2 moves (look at the Dez Bryant play).

 

then you have a fat old referee who couldn't fathom making that play at the height of his athletic prime, and his brain can't accept that someone could effortlessly make 2 moves in seemingly 1 motion like that

The rules do suck, but as a Dallas fan that’s was told to “suck it up” when Dez’s TD In the playoffs was overruled I’ve gotta return the favor.

 

Suck it up.

 

Exactly. You patriots haters are pretending that’s the first time we’ve seen play like that. It’s a bad rule but it was the correct interpretation of a bad rule. Incomplete was the correct call.
