That’s a catch.

Mention the names Calvin Johnson Kentavius Street Color Rush Jersey , Dez Bryant, Zach Miller and Jesse James , and what looked, sounded and felt like a catch wasn’t one. If NFL owners pass a proposal from the powerful competition committee, those will be receptions in the future.

According to committee chairman Rich McKay and league officiating director Al Riveron, it’s time.

”We want to take these great catches and make them into catches,” Riveron said Monday at the NFL meetings, where the owners likely will vote Tuesday on the adjustments to the catch rule.

Such phrases as ”slight movement of the ball” and ”surviving the ground” will disappear, and fans, players and coaches will get the fulfilment of knowing what they were sure was a reception actually is.

The committee looked at dozens of plays dozens of times. They discovered that the previous attempts to clarify what is a catch only confused the issue. So much so that the language of the rules was getting in the way of making the proper call.

”Every time, we tried to add language to cure a situation,” said McKay, president of the Atlanta Falcons ”and that did not serve us well.

”We felt like the word slight was getting people caught up. It’s really loss of control. If you lose control of the ball, then you haven’t satisfied (the process). If you have movement of the ball but haven’t lost control of it, then you still have it.”

Added Riveron: ”If we see total loss of control, that’s the way we’re going to rule it. But we understand there are situations where the ball is going to move. We have to see loss of control.”

McKay pointed to touchdown receptions by Alshon Jeffery and Corey Clement in the Super Bowl. In both cases, the ball moved a bit in the receiver’s hands. In both cases, though, on-field officials, then Riveron handling the video review, determined there was possession throughout.

”Those are catches,” he said, noting that under current language in the rules, ”the ground trumped everything. It didn’t make a lot of sense.”

The committee examined plays back to the 1990s and early 2000s, including a pass to the Jets’ Wayne Chrebet in which McKay said the film was ”so grainy you could barely make it out.” He mentioned Bert Emanuel’s non-reception in the 1999 NFC title game when the tip of the ball touched the ground even though Emanuel had it in his clutches.

The major emphasis on re-examining the rule stems from Bryant’s non-catch in a playoff game at Green Bay. Reconstructing that play through video, Riveron explained how the proposed change will seize logic – in other words Eric Weddle Jersey , make what should have been a catch into a real catch.

”I think the Dez Bryant was the start of us realizing something needs to change,” McKay said.

Each year, there have been similar examples that made everyone from the guys throwing the ball to the coaches on the sideline to the fans in the stands and on their mobile devices wondering what was going on. When James’ apparent winning touchdown reception against New England was overturned even though the Steelers tight end made a football move to extend the ball over the goal line, it prompted Commissioner Roger Goodell to forcefully endorse seeking adjustments to the rule.

The competition committee heeded such instructions.

So, a receiver must:

-have control of the ball;

-get two feet down or another body part;

-make a football move: taking a third step or extending the ball or something similar.

Gone, Riveron emphatically said, is surviving the ground.

”That’s out,” he said. ”No mas.”

There will, however, be more emphasis on the on-field officiating calls. McKay reminded that game officials overwhelmingly get the calls correct at full speed.

”The rule is a lot cleaner, so the answer is yes,” Riveron said, adding that game officials were consulted as the committee worked on the language of the proposal.

Of course, with more catches, there could be more fumbles as receivers try to extend plays and get extra yardage. Riveron has no problem with that.

”If we end up with 10 more fumbles but five of the most exciting plays of the year,” McKay said, ”it’s a trade we’d make any day.”

Notes: No proposals were made nor votes taken regarding the national anthem before games. The owners did focus on implementing the social justice platform with the players and unanimously approved a local matching funds program. Each of the teams will match fundraising proceeds of the players and teams and its players will work together to determine where to allocate the funds in a local market. The anthem discussions will resume and be a main focus of May’s meeting in Atlanta.




ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — A day after their first win of the season, the change in the mood of the previously winless Detroit Lions was evident.

In one corner of the locker room, linebacker Marquis Flowers and running back LeGarrette Blount engaged in a heated debate over whether Kobe Bryant or LeBron James was the greater basketball player.

“Just coming in today, it was a little bit different,” Lions wide receiver Golden Tate said. “It’s kind of a sigh of relief.”

Winning has a way of lifting the tension. Especially considering the quality of the opponent that the Lions beat.

Sunday’s decisive 26-10 victory over the New England Patriots was fashioned by a smothering performance from the Lions defense.

The Lions held the Patriots to 209 yards, the fewest they’ve allowed since holding the New York Giants to 197 yards on Sept. 8, 2014.

“To finally get our first win, against a team like that, that’s a yearly contender for the Super Bowl James Hurst Jersey , it’s a pretty big deal,” Tate said.

It was only the third time since 2007 that the Patriots produced fewer than 210 yards.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who led the NFL with 4,577 yards passing last season, was limited to 133 yards.

“That is amazing,” Lions cornerback Darius Slay said. “That is really amazing.”

In the first quarter, Detroit held a 126-5 edge in yards and a 12:30-2:30 advantage in time of possession. The first three drives of the game saw Detroit outgain the Patriots 196-13 and hold a 14-0 edge in first downs. The Lions outgained the Patriots 231-70 in the first half.

“We couldn’t execute anything,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick said.

Lions running back Kerryon Johnson, who finished with 16 carries for 101 yards and became the first Lions running back to record a 100-yard rushing game since Reggie Bush against Green Bay on Nov. 28, 2013, felt the defensive performance was what keyed the win.

“I think the defense was a lot more impressive than we were,” Johnson said. “They had to shut down Tom Brady.”

Slay preferred to view their success story as a team effort.

“This was really all about the offense controlling the ball and keeping us rested,” Slay said. “The best game plan against Tom Brady is keeping him off the field, and the offense kept putting up long drives.”

The Lions also handed much of the credit to coach Matt Patricia, the former Patriots defensive coordinator who earned his first win as an NFL head coach.

“He made everything smooth this week,” Slay said. “He knows everything about that team and he made sure we knew it as well.”

Patricia wasn’t about to take the pat on the back without returning it to his players.

“A week ago, the story was completely different as I stood here,” Patricia said. “It was a good collective team effort. I think everybody that had a significant role, I thought they did a good job.”

Improving to 1-2 on the season while handing the defending AFC champion Patriots (1-2) their second straight loss, the Lions said it won’t matter if they don’t carry the momentum into Sunday’s game at Dallas against the Cowboys.

“Now that we have this win, it means nothing if we don’t come back this week and have a great week of practice and go out there and handle business on the road against another good opponent,” Tate said.

“We’re happy we got that first win, but now we’ve got to put that game to bed. Now we’ve got to prepare like we did last week for the Dallas Cowboys on the road. Try to hit restart and go do it again.”
