The NFL needs to refine the catch rule.


I’m kind of tired of saying this, but the NFL needs to overhaul its rule books once and for all.

“The rulebook benefitted a receiver, in this case, but typically it’s the defense that gets good news when the replay command center takes over. Devonta Freeman had a touchdown wiped away in Week 5; in Week 3 it was Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert’s turn to lose a score. The Cowboys might have been playing for a trip to the Super Bowl last January if Dez Bryant’s fourth-quarter reception in the divisional playoffs at Lambeau Field wasn’t overturned. And then there’s the Patient Zero of the NFL’s catch rule, Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson.” – Reported by Dan Hanzus
