    What in the world were Aikman, Buck and Pereria talking about on that play? There was nothing even close to sufficient evidence to overturn the call on the field, yet all three of them were absolutely sure it was getting called back. I just don't get that one at all. :confused:

    The ball very clearly was over his forearm the entire time. Any time either of them can go against the Cowboys though...

    The ball moved when it touched the ground. I thought the call could've gone either way

    The ball was moving, but no way to say for sure it hit the ground.

    They were focused on the ball movement.

    It never hit the ground though. It hit his forearm and moved while still on his arm.

    They are all idiots. Bryant caught and it didn't even touch the ground. Thus he may have rolled but it didn't show it touched the ground.

    It clearly wasn't a catch. But it was a make up for that earlier Eagles non-TD.

    I thought it was good, even after the replay. I was surprised the announcers and Pereira all thought it would get overturned.

    The ball moved, but that doesn't decide if the ball was caught or not. That's where I was just shaking my head. Especially Perriera. Sorry, the real refs suck. The only difference was that the replacement refs couldn't spot the ball and couldn't stop player fights.

    That was clearly inc. unlike the catch vs the Giants, which was more questionable. Take off your homer glasses.

    This is what I saw, he had his arm under the ball the whole time. Just because the ball moves doesn't make it incomplete. It's no different from when the ball hits the ground even though the ball is in the receivers hands. The ground wasn't used to trap the ball so its a catch

    The replay they were showing right before the ref came back was from the other endzone and the ball never hit the ground.

    Exactly! Sure, the ball moved while on his forearm. But, there was never any indisputable visual evidence that the ball actually touched the ground.

    This is the point at which the ball is rolling between Bryant's body and the ground. Of course it's touching the ground. How can anyone say it didn't touch the ground? Hell the ball is on the ground and Bryant doesn't even have a hand on it.

    Whatever it was, it couldn't have been all that clearly a non-catch, because it stood up on the field, and it stood up under review.
