The rule isn't stupid, Calvin Johnson is stupid. He should go to the DeSean Jackson remedial school of celebration for dumbass receivers. We can all see that you caught a pass, it's on national tv with 30 HD cameras focussed on the endzone. There's no hurry to shove it in our faces, act like you've been there before.

Absolutely! You'll have no disagreement from me there. ;-D

To win their first road game in almost three years with less than a minute to go on an excellent mid air adjustment catch? I'd probably be pretty excited too, especially knowing I caught the ball.

Me too man. But you have to be more aware, secure the football, get the touchdown, there's plenty of time to celebrate with hookers and blow after the game.

i had the Bears in my Survivor Pool so i was rooting against the Lions anyway
regardless, even if it was ruled a TD i have no doubt Devin Hester would have run back the ensuing kickoff for a TD

Agreed. And I'm a Bears fan. That was a catch, the rule is stupid, and I hope they change it next season because of this play.
