My bf is a hard-core Vikings fan, and he was irritated by that call. He knows his football, but unfortunately, he's not one to go to for explanations. He explains things on the most basic level and never gets beyond explaining to me what it means when they review a play (like I didn't know that).

I would like an explanation. Is there a new rule this year that I don't know about or is that just a pile of non-sense?

Still fuming.

Basically there are different rules for catching the ball in the endzone than the rest of the field of play. The rule was created for different situations, one where it wasn't so damn obvious the player caught the ball.

If a player goes to the ground in the act of catching a pass (with or without contact by an opponent), he must maintain control of the ball after he touches the ground.

I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y

Even fans from most other teams acknowledge the bulls*** level on that one is sky high.

I'm not a Lions fan, but when I saw the highlights of that game and that CJ catch was called incomplete, I almost lost it. He caught it, came down with both feet and then hit the ground. Play over. Then the ball came loose. It didn't come loose in the process of making the catch, the catch had already been made. How much longer is he supposed to hold onto the ball until its considered a catch?

There was a similar play to this last year with Hines Ward. He caught it in the corner of the end zone running, fell down and rolled with the ball out of bounds and when he got up to his feet, he dropped it and they said incomplete pass. Nobody made a big deal about it because it was a blowout game against the Browns and it didn't matter. This crap call affected the outcome of the game.

I still can't believe it. Were they using NHL officials?

Gonna get beat up over this, but i hope vick throws for 500 yards and runs for another 200 this sunday. What the guy did is digusting and inexcusable, but he did his time so let the guy play football. (yes I was and still am a big Vick fan) sucks he gets chance to shine against the lions, but I hope he dominates.

So because the guy did something disgusting you hope he does something good? Not following that logic. Hope Suh anal rapes him on the 50 yard line and takes legal custody of his children.

meh second chances and all that, what he did has nothing to do with his ability as a football player. getting anal raped might not be too bad on him since he did spend 18 months in prison. ;)

Hey, here's hoping the Lions don't get raped by the officials today.

The only explanation from last week is that the Lions have apparently offended the football gods, and when they almost manage a clutch victory, the gods intervened to crush that hope.

I'm not sure what they did to offend them. Maybe hiring Millen? Made a deal with the devil for Barry Sanders that they're still paying for?

Don't worry, Shaun Hill is going to be the next Kurt Warner.

Good game. I didn't like the playcall on 4th and short, but hind-site is 20/20. The future looks good though.
I make 1 or 2 posts a week tops. Sometimes they're gold, sometimes they're crap, but the end weight is the same.

It would be nice if the defense could make some stops every now and then. Putting up 32 points usually equals a win.

We're making plays but we're still the Lions. Can't get out of our own damn way.
