I think it's a stupid rule even with two feet down.....the ground can't cause a fumble inbounds....I don't care for some stupid Chris Carter rule.
God bless our troops and Joe Gibbs.

Thank you. I beleive even if Coles had 7 steps the refs would say it would be incomplete. Coles took 3 steps. That was a catch nonetheless. The refs are trying to find a way for us to lose. We showed those zebras.
Hail to the Redskins!!!!

I was at the game this sunday and I was almost certain it was a catch. It was hard to tell though from my seats because I was sitting in some nose bleeders. After seeing the replay on ESPN it was definitly a catch I think, but I guess according to the new rule that boss hog stated if the ground knocks it loose it's not a catch and that's what happen.

I'm jsut glad that it didn't cost us the game. There's nothing like driving 400 miles to watch the skins play in nosebleeder seats and have them lose because of a blown call.

Great game overall and I had a great time and I'm going to definitly make it to another this season.

GO SKINS!

I wish I could have gotten to the game myself...

If the rule states 2 feet in and control... he had 3 - just reviewed it... shouldn't matter whether the ball came out or not.

From what they were saying is, you must have 3 steps, they said he had two steps and then bubbled the ball while hitting the ground (which is bs) but they said the refs could call it incomplete, it is up to them to determine that, at least that is what the annoucers where saying yesterday, about the out of bounch rule. He had 3 steps and a great catch, in my head. But like it was stated before, we can't let teams back in it, they need to go for the jugular when we have them. Good Win, but we need to start out hot next week at Philthadelphia, no more fieldgoals, we need TD's

The call was so ridiculously wrong and incompetent, that even the most conservative judge on the Supreme Court would have ruled it a reception! BTW: The High Court is writing their opinion as we speak. Look out Ref. White.......the SC just may subpoena you in the NFL doesn't first! heheh

For what it's worth, I thought there were 3 steps, too.

Oh there were 3 steps alright... I hope nobody thinks I was justifying the call, I was just saying what it was supposed to be based on.

What a freakin awesome catch regardless.

Not a bad throw either.

Water under the bridge... we're 3-1.

Whooooooooooooooo!!!!!

From what I can tell, the refs made the right call as far as the rules go--it's just that it's a completely moronic rule in the first place (like the "tuck rule" of a couple of years ago).

But speaking of falling with the ball--what do y'all think of doing away with the "the ground can't cause a fumble" rule? In other words--if you can't hang on to the ball when you hit the ground, you don't deserve to call it a catch.

Depends newshog.

If Trung or Betts is carrying the ball, I am all in favor of keeping the rules as is - if not we can negotiate.

There have been plenty of times over the years that I have jumped from the couch screaming "the ground can't cause a fumble" and it has saved the skins. Works for and against us.

I can live with it the way it is.
