    I thought the tackling was terrific, especially in the open field. House did whiff once on Pettigrew, but I don't recall too many other missed tackles. Lacy's running combined with our sound defense kept the Lions off the field. I think they only ran about 15 plays in the first half.

    The difference is between being a receiver and a runner. If Jones had caught the ball, clearly put both feet down before the EZ while maintaining possession, then it would have been a TD. If he had "dotted" the EZ with his second foot (as Nelson has become brilliant at) and maintained possession, it would have been a TD. I did think it was close regarding Jones having possession when his foot came down just outside the EZ - then the foot that clearly landed in the EZ would have been a TD

    Another example of the difference is Calvin Johnson getting TDs erased even after he catches the ball and gets two feet down in the EZ - he has to control the ball throughout the process. OTOH as you say, a runner who stretches the ball out and touches the pylon with it, scores. Like it or not, there are different rules regarding catching the ball vs. running the ball and scoring TDs.

    One of Johnson's TDs that wasn't:

    Eddie Lacy
    Jordy Nelson
    James Jones

    Mason Crosby hasn't missed this year?


    MM makes me angry with his dumb play calling. He called a pass play on 3rd and 1 twice versus just trying to pick up the 1 yd running the ball at least once.

    Trainers. Another hamstring injury? Wow guy's.

    House. We need Casey Heyward back asap. Dumb penalties irk me
