Default Fitzgerald's 1st TD

I know I'm reaching here, but did anyone else think maybe we should have challenged that catch? Sure looked like the front 1/3 of the ball was on the ground when Ike landed on him. And it was hard to say he had control of it too.

YES YES. I was yelling to challenge. The tip of the ball hit the ground.

Not that I can put on here but I do have the game and the CG DVRed.

I thought it should have been challenged too.

Totally agree, but the h8rz will deny all of it as usual.

No, I think it was a touchdown. It looked like he had it with 2 feet down.

Yes but you have to maintain control until you come down to the ground...in other words if ball hits ground and comes looses = no catch.

Let him have it - least we could do considering the huge advantage we were given by the refs throughout the rest of the game.

Yep - seems to me Holmes had a TD catch overturned in the AFCCG due to the exact same circumstances.
