To Dez Bryant, Cowboys Fans, and any others who don’t understand why it wasn’t a catch yesterday, the above photograph explains why he didn’t have control. Put another way, don’t let it be a question, it won’t be.
Even before the review, I didn’t think he had the ball where he had it. I thought he didn’t actually get control of it until he rolled into the end zone but had no way of knowing whether the ball touched the ground in the meantime, which the refs must have decided it did. It was a risky flag to throw on McCarthy’s side because it very well could have turned into a Touch Down. Then again, that would have saved Green Bay some time as they would have needed to score a TD to win.
