The Next Catch

It happened again. Lions involved.

3-3-PHI 48(3:12) (Shotgun) M.Vick pass deep left to D.Jackson to DET 17 for 35 yards (J.Wade). Detroit challenged the incomplete pass ruling, and the play was REVERSED. (Shotgun) M.Vick pass incomplete deep left to D.Jackson (J.Wade).

Eagles fans are unhappy, surely. Someone just got beat up.

This was even less of a catch than Megatron's, I think. Lion's fans, the few that remain, would've wept. The bottom line on this call is DeSean Jackson just had to hold onto the ball. Simple enough.

It makes me think that the umpire judgment for catch is similar to pass interference and you know what, the subjective nature of pass interference has determined the outcome of many more games than this catch rule ever will.
