To me it looked like it probably wasn't a catch but I'm not sure why it was overturned because it didn't seem like there was a angle that showed the ball actually touching the ground.

There wasn't enough to overturn in IMO.

You have to remember, he gets a magnified view in that booth that we don't see. I thought he had control much more than Sanders did in Cincy.

It looked good to me and appeared that there wasn't enough to overturn the call on the field.

I agree. I didn't see enough to overturn. I thought it was BS.

I thought the call was correct....the rule just sucks.

No visual evidence that the ball touched the ground. Magnification would not have changed that fact. Completion should not have been overturned.

The ball looked like it never touched the ground. His hand seemed to be underneath the ball the whole way. How they overturned the call is beyond me. Catching the ball is one of the most fundenmental elements of the game and it seems nobody can clearly define what constitutes a catch. The NFL really needs to look at this in the offseason.

I agree. Ben made a lot of clutch plays yesterday, but he was definitely off. That throw was one of several. Not complaining though, without Ben we are not in the SB...AGAIN!!!!

He was sooo wide open that Ben just pushed it funny. That stuff happens alot to NFL QBs not used to seeing a guy so open.

I think throwing touch passes w a glove on is tricky.
When you let it fly it comes out much better, but on touch passes, i think it's hard to make them throws

At first I thought it was a good catch but on the reverse angle it looks like the ball bounced off the ground. I wish he would have thrown the ball like that in the second half when Sanders or Brown was wide open.

I just got home from Pittsburgh and rewatched the first half.
I dont see where the ball ever touched the ball.
Call on the field was a catch and it has to be indisputable evidence to overrule.
I didnt see it.

It looked similar to one of the Packer interceptions earlier in the day. DB hit the ground, ball moved around. They upheld it on review.

Similar situations, two different outcomes.

the ball hit the ground and heath had his hand under it the whole time, but the ball readjusted after he rolled over and that lead me to believe that was the reason it wasn't a catch. i assume they thought he didn't have control after the roll over.

As soon as that jerk Nantz started rooting for it to be overturned, as he of course saw it differently than Simms, I knew we were screwed. :evil:
