Bah, stop missing the point. I think it was Dexter who said you are sometimes deliberately obtuse. You are being obtuse here again. The question isn't, "Must the receiver hold onto the football?" but rather "How long must he hold onto the football?" To answer "Until the whistle blows" is, as Dexter pointed out, purely a case of circular reasoning. There should be some solid definition so that neither officials, nor players, nor spectators have a shadow of a doubt that a catch was made and completed.

blah blah blah... I'm tired of the whining, complaining and excuses...

hold onto the ball in the end zone and it's a TD... it's simple as that...

OK, how long?

How can you have incontrovertible evidence that the ball was held onto long enough if you don't know how long enough is?

I accept the rule about controlling the ball to the ground, but that variation on it doesn't make sense to me. If the receiver is already in the end zone, it's not a catch, but apparently if the receiver is falling into the end zone, it is a catch. I don't get it at all.


I miss Greg's posts.

Nonstopdrivel (15-Nov) : It's crazy to think that RGIII might get a start this week.
TheKanataThrilla (14-Nov) : It is hard to compare the TD:INT ratio of Aaron to Tom Brady with all the intentional throw aways this year.
Porforis (14-Nov) : Sometimes there's a fine line between a simple exchange and a good topic and by the time I realize I cross that line I'm done with the conversation anyways lol

Nonstopdrivel (14-Nov) : 9.77 yards per attempt is stellar.
Nonstopdrivel (14-Nov) : His completion percentage is 67.1 but his TD:INT ratio is pretty abysmal. What bumps his passer rating is his phenomenal average per attempt.
Porforis (14-Nov) : I'm shocked his passer rating is that high. He's #29 in the leauge with a 61.1% completion percentage
Nonstopdrivel (14-Nov) : On that scale, Ryan Fitzpatrick is the best QB in the league this season and Brock Osweiler is the worst.
Nonstopdrivel (14-Nov) : I compiled all the NextGen stats and normalized them, and the final ratings ranged from 64.8 to 34.4 on a 100-pt scale. That's not helpful at all.
Nonstopdrivel (14-Nov) : NextGen stats really suck for ranking QBs. The standard deviations are just too tiny. There's no spread.
