That last play should have not been a TD. What a load of BS. It's not a catch until he comes down with the ball is my understanding. He was in the air and when he came down the ball was obviously outside of the end zone.
It's called forward progress. It is where he caught the ball before being driven backwards. He doesn't have to have 2 feet down in the end zone.
But it's not a catch until his feet come down. I don't agree with counting forward progress until he actually makes the catch. They improved the ruling on this when they allowed the defender to push the receiver OB before he came down with the pass. I think the same rule should apply here.

I thought he didn’t have complete control until well after he touched the ground. Wouldn’t forward progress happen when he has possession?
agreed.

Maybe you should research your teams QB before speaking and telling other people what to do......

And stop there.... I dont need some stat you manipulated and cherry picked saying how PFF is wrong and you're right. I literally dont care. You're wrong, move on.
LOL, what? You said he had better stats when pressured than not and I proved you wrong. As for the article you posted, it is through week 10, and after week 10 things must have gotten dicey for Cousins because he dropped to 12th from #1 in grade, the stat you posted in an attempt to prove me wrong, not a cherry picked one, the one YOU chose says he isn't regressing against pressure. Although if you just look at grade he isn't regressing, he just has always been bad.

And believe me I know you don't care what the facts say if they prove you wrong.

Classic Stump. You leave out the part where I said "especially the boots" and then try to lay a stat down to prove me wrong. Okay? Every time I've addressed the lack of play action, I've referred specifically to the lack of PA boots. Trust me, I dont need you of all people telling me what to do. Thanks though
I am not debating the boots, I don't have numbers on those. I am telling you you are dead wrong about the play-action part of your post that I quoted.

Sounds like you are blaming a lack of boots now to excuse your QB failing, something I can't disprove but based on your play-action take, is probably wrong too.

I will keep an eye out on how often we run boots versus not though, and when you are proven wrong yet again I look forward to you moving the goal posts yet again.
According to every analyst Cousins is having his best season EVER despite having many very good seasons before this one. Somehow you turn that into bad play. It's amazing your ability to spin things.

I'm guessing if it wasn't the last play of the game or if it affected who won the game, it would have been reviewed further and possibly changed. But in this case they just wanted the game to be over and didn't want to go through a lengthy review since it didn't matter anyway.
Many people have bets on the games and it is a big part of the games popularity. They need to get it right whether it changes who wins or not.
