    There's a risk of injury when you land on your hand too.

    Ask Chad Pennington.

    How quickly we forget the TD catch in the NE playoff game.

    Holmes has great hand and superb body control.
    You're forgetting how he landed that catch with both hands on the ball and his upper body (shoulder) hitting the turf.

    Basically, you and DD are saying that Holmes is used to making that grab and nobody disagrees; it's a patented Holmes TD catch. Thank you.

    That's why it's obvious on Sunday he didn't pull it off precisely the way he'd like to.

    He mucked up the finish.

    Go watch the SB TD and you'll see how he waited for his feet to hit and put his forearm down only at the last moment.

    Tough catch. No knock on Tone, just sayin'.

    I don't think it's survival. Just reflex. I think his foot took longer to come down than he thought it would. You see the replay, and it looks like it takes unnaturally long to get down. Kind of like when you try to move just two fingers. It's not natural and you have to concentrate to do it. He does have great body control, and I'm looking forward to a great year with all the receivers happy, and Shotty free. Should lead to many more opportunities to prove himself.

    The replacement refs were not good yesterday. They make a lot more mistakes than regular refs.

    As his left foot touched down he switched the ball to his right hand completely so he could reach down and break the fall with his left.

    His left hand touched ground just before the right foot touched the EZ.

    Had he kept both hands on the ball and let his upper body fall freely it would've been 6.

    Of course, Tone did what he felt was necessary but it didn't work.

    Calm down Wet Nuts.

    It's a little early to be swigging Popov for MNF, even for you.

    E-a-s-y now.
    Calm down? No need. The only one who needs to calm down are those who obviously don't get it.

    The idea that you expect that catch to be made or not making is a muck up, is silly.

    What ticked me off even more about that is it was CLEAR AS DAY that it was the DEFENDER who hit the pylon. Hill wasn't even close to it yet they continue to insist that he must've hit the pylon and when the replay showed, not one peep came out of them.


    I guess they didn't want to acknowledge that they made a mistake....

    What's your point?

    I'm not a $50M pro WR that rehearses that catch every week, nor am I ripping Holmes for muffing it.

    But I'll keep your offer in mind.

    I'm sure Tone would admit that it wasn't his best execution yesterday.

    He almost pulled it off and it would've been a beauty.

    It was clear as day that his hand was down first. What is all the debating about???

    Er, okay. That's like saying when an olympic gymnast screws up a landing it's not really a screw-up because that stuff is difficult and you and I couldn't do any better.

    Sanchez needs to make that an easy catch. He was great but definitely needed to hit that one.

    By rule no catch. Easy call.
    Come on, that was almost a blind 50/50 guess to call correctly in live speed. Give the refs credit.
