I think you mean "touchdown" since it wasn't actually counted. :smile:
The ball did clearly touch the ground, so the question was whether he had complete control with his hands & facemask before it did so. The replay official obviously either did not think he did or it was too close to call, I would like to think that the play would have been upheld either way the official on the field called it.
The call should have stood as it was called on the field after they reviewed it. Whichever way they determined it. (Obviously they called it incomplete)
If it would have been ruled a TD on the field, it would have stood.
There just wasn't enough to overturn the call, either way.
luckily white scored 2 plays later so it didnt matter
It looked to me like a catch.
If we had lost and not scored a TD on that drive, we would be talking about that call more. Good thing we don't have to!
The play was definitely too close to call. If that had not been a home game, I don't believe the play would have even been reviewed. The crowd earned that review for sure. I still think it was a TD but it's so hard to tell when possession starts that I am not too upset about the call. I think if the ball wasn't ripped out of his hands at the end of the play then the play would have been called a TD.
I think it was a catch, and had it been called as such, would have stood.
