Default Re: Two for Tomlin

I put the refs answer in another thread. Maybe it should have gone here... but his answer made a lot of sense.

It isn't just having to feet down that makes it a catch, it is two feet down, and a football move. Two feet down is ONLY when going out of bounds. He was not able to make a football move. He got hit and flipped over. At that point, the question is, did he keep possession when he hit the ground, or did he lose possession and thus the ball was incomplete.

We all know the answer to that one... and that is why it was called an incomplete pass.
