    My buddy in Northport is trying to tell me that the Jets got screwed on the Evans catch, claiming that the second foot never got down. When I watched it, it looked to me like some of the rubber gravel kicked up when he dragged the second foot.

    Do any of you guys feel like this was a screw-job?

    In bounds. He dragged his other foot. But still, you gotta save the timeouts just in case it was a legitimate challenge.

    No way of knowing. It looked awfully close to a drag, but the replay they showed wasn't close enough to be conclusive.

    I did think it was a bad call to have Roderick Bryant covering him..

    the only thing screwy about that play was why #39 Roderick Bryant was in man to man with Evans...

    I thought it was too risky of a call by Mularkey but it worked so who am I to judge. it was very tough to see on the replay so veen if we had a T.O., I don't think it would be overturned.

    From what I saw, it was a clean catch. Definitely not enough to overturn anything.

    why knock Gameday???

    he had perfect coverage on Evans and Drew put that ball exactly where only he could catch it, the coverage wasn't bad, just like with the Td it was a perfect throw

    The "screw job" was that b.s. "chop block" call on #65 Brandon Moore and #68 Kevin Mawae. <_<

    I was in the car so I missed the play. I can&#39;t comment on it.

    Then you missed the best one, an "illegal shift" called on the whole O-line.

    #66 Pete Kendall&#39;s false start and #25 Reggie Tongue&#39;s illegal contact were good calls, but the other screw job was on #94 Johnny Abe, two consecutive "offsides" in the 2nd. No wonder he tried to beat the life out of #65 G Ross Tucker. That was a classic, Johnny Abe was stradling him, had his face mask in one hand and was trying to punch him in the helmet like he was street brawling with the other hand.

    That&#39;s my boy. B)

    It was a catch. Great footwork by the rookie.

    At first I thought it was incomplete. But after seeing it oh 3-4 times, it was in.

    Though I question whether the catch was legit, there are two reasons why it is moot:

    1) We did not have a timeout at the time, leaving us with the inability to challenge
    2) Even if we could challenge, there didn&#39;t appear to be any indisputable evidence that he was out of bounds.

    I think he dragged his foot, but it was close one way or another.

    Couldn&#39;t agree more. Perfect throw, great catch, feet were in.

    Believe it or not, sometimes the other teams just make big plays.

    if the perfect ball is thrown, there isnt a cb in the nfl that can stop it
