When the NFL get's their rules figured out, Dez Bryant wants to know first.
The Dallas Cowboys' wide receiver was the subject of controversy last season as a result of a catch that the NFL determined was incomplete. It has been the standard for the NFL's explanation of incomplete passes this year.
After watching the divisional round of the playoffs this last week, Bryant is still convinced the NFL has no idea what is a catch and what isn't. He let them know on Tuesday how he felt on the subject.
“The NFL is still trying to figure out what a catch is,” Bryant said in regards to Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald's catch in that game, via Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “Whenever they figure that out, hopefully they’ll let me know.”
Fitzgerald made a great catch and had two feet in-bounds, but bobbled the ball on the way to the ground, much like Bryant's catch last season. However, Fitzgerald's play counted and Bryant's didn't.
NFL V.P. of Officiating Dean Blandino took to Twitter in a video to explain both calls, but honestly, we remain confused after the explanation.
So we ask, what is a catch in today's NFL?
