  1. Wow what a bunch of crap in Chicago I can’t even understand how that could ever be possibly benifical for the NFL wow Detroit was robbed and chicago got handed a victory that wasn’t theirs that whole thing needs to be reversed first a umpire steal a perfect game from a tigers pitcher and now a retarded call is made on the lions they worked way to hard for you people to take this Way from them I haven’t heard a single person say that it wasn’t a catch eventhe Chicago broadcasters leave it to the zebras

  2. Gene Steratore better stay the hell our of Detroit. I despise that mothereffer with my entire being. That was a catch, and anyone with eyes can see it. He debased the game of football with that call today. May he rot in hell.

  3. Perhaps the blame lies with those who wrote the rules, and not the mothereffer who made the call (or in this case, upheld the call via replay).

    Johnson knows the “process of the catch” rule, and if he just tucked it in to his body to maintain control, we would instead be talking about the Lions having their first opening day victory since 2005.
