    Yes but this is not the issue of concern. The only issue of concern is who gained "control" of the football first. The completer act of catching the ball and obtaining control of the ball are two different things. Please see my response to EddieBlue above.

    Catch: the full act of catching the ball meaning from the moment you gain control (see below for definition) to when you get 2 feet in and go to the ground etc. THIS IS NOT AN INSTANTANEOUS MOMENT.

    Gaining control IS an instantaneous moment in time. Control is gained the moment you have the ball in your hand or hands without it moving around or wiggling. Control can be gained on a weakly grasped one handed finger catch away from the body just as much as it can on a strong 2-handed near the body. There are no degrees of control. You cannot have "more control" than another player.

    I hope this is helpful.

    It's not like this hasn't happened to the Giants before...see Greg Jennings' "touchdown" last December...

    We were screwed like this by the refs in our regular season GB game last year.......photographic evidence clearly showed Ballard's knee was in for a TD.

    We are morphing into total powerhouse, so the Eagles are not a huge concern, to be honest. We'll be seeing you guys on 11/25 in the Meadowlands.
    I do not think you will be laughing too much afterwards. We'll see.......you guys appear to have severe Oline problems
