Hard to compare it to the Calvin Johnson play as they seem to be doing on most post game shows.
I think the reason why it's being compared to the Calvin Johnson play is because both plays seem to be counter intuitive. Watching the plays it's obvious they both had control of the ball until the ground caused them to lose control. Yes I realize that's how the rule is written, but it doesn't change the fact that common sense tells you they made the play. There's something wrong with a rule that seems to defy common sense.

Falling to the ground is not a football move.

 It's always good when the cowgirls lose no matter the circumstances but losing this way couldn't be more perfect.

Is reaching for the endzone with the ball in your hand a football move?

Agreed.  Just seems to take away from the game.  The past two weeks have really been about the bad calls, reverse calls etc.  Today's even worse than lasts weeks.  Imagine this happening in the Super Bowl?

Not while you're falling to the ground, it isn't...

Think they'll look at that rule in the offseason.  Possession should be two feet down with control..NO?

Not sure if the NFL considers that a football move or not but Its a moot point as that's not what happened.

If he had come down with the ball, taken a step and then lunged for the end zone, then sure...football move completed, first and goal Dallas.

Catching the ball, losing control of it as you hit the ground and ball touches the ground while you don't have full control...incomplete pass.

But if it did happen it sure would make an interesting topic of conversation.  Evil
