Because apparently catching the ball, landing and diving into the end zone isn’t a “football move”. The ruling cost the Lions a touchdown and a bunch of people some fantasy points.
One of these years, you think this rule would be properly explained to him. Poor guy.
Are you fucking kidding me? And I don’t even HAVE Calvin Johnson.
In what alternate universe is that not a TD? Lance Moore got a 2 point conversion in the Super Bowl on a lot less possession than that.
His knee isn’t down and forward progress has the ball past the goal line. What else does he need?
I, too, do not understand the ruling. I will by the end of the season; at which time they will change the rule again.
Regardless of the justification of the rule, shouldn’t he know where the fuck he is on the field and just squeeze that ball into his chest? Is there a reason he needed to to stretch to two and a half yards deep into the endzone? Does he think you get more points for getting deeper? This isn’t sex Megatron, just the tip is plenty.
Obviously the NFL hates Megatron. I’m sure the feeling is mutual.
