Quote:
NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations Troy Vincent said Tuesday that the league is closing in on clarifying its controversial catch rule.

According to Mark Maske of the Washington Post, Vincent said the NFL plans to eliminate two factors that can cause incompletions.

"Slight movement of the ball, it looks like we'll reverse that," he said. "Going to the ground, it looks like that's going to be eliminated. And we'll go back to the old replay standard of reverse the call on the field only when it's indisputable."


How did they get off of this!!

Quote:
Vincent explained the process of determining what should be ruled a catch: "We worked backward. We looked at plays and said: Do you want that to be a catch? And then we applied that to the rule."

He added that only indisputable video evidence will change the call on the field rather than the previous "clear and obvious" requirement.

Quote:
Vincent mentioned two infamous non-catches in recent years and said they would be catches under the new rule: "The Dez Bryant play, that'd be a catch. The Jesse James play, that'd be a catch."
