Remember the Catch That Wasn't a Catch? Well, Next Year it Might Be a Catch Again

We heard all of the belly-aching come from the Lions fans when the game-winning catch by Calvin Johnson was ruled incomplete in Week 1, and heard all of the "Well, rules are rules" comments coming from Bears fans.

As it turns out (and not surprisingly), the NFL is going to take a look at that rule this offseason and determine whether changes need to be made.

We've said from the beginning, you can't criticize the official for making the call... their role is to enforce the rules as they are wrtten, without discretion. If the rule needs to be changed, then change it. Perhaps it just might be changed next season.
