10:35 PM ET 12.28 | As I sat watching the Giants and Ravens game, one play brings back awful memories for me. The Ravens were denied a touchdown catch by Jacoby Jones because he did not "complete the catch," as the receiver dived for the end zone soon after making a catch, and was deemed to have "performed no second act common to the game." Even FOX officiating guru Mike Pereria thought the play should have been considered a catch and score, but the officials on the field overturned the call and it cost the Ravens a touchdown. So to all of you trying to enjoy NFL football, and wondering why the heck your player isn't being rewarded for making a great catch, you can thank the Bucs and Bert Emanuel. Because without his memorable play, the history of the completed catch rule could have been completely different. Instead, the Buccaneers helped to further muddy the waters of the NFL's most complicated and confusing rule.
