Competition Committee: 2014 Dez Bryant Play Should Be A Catch 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Feb 28, 2018 12:57 pm

The NFL's competition committee has reached a "unanimous" agreement that plays such as the controversial one involving Dez Bryant in the 2014 playoffs should be considered a catch going forward.

Another play referenced involved Calvin Johnson back in 2010.

"I think where we are unanimous," New York Giants owner John Mara said, "[are] plays like the Dez Bryant play in Green Bay, going to the ground, [and] the Calvin Johnson play from a couple of years ago. I think all of us agree that those should be completions. So let's write the language to make them completions."

The discussions are geared toward a rewriting of the catch rule for the 2018 season.
