It wasn't catchable because he was hugged all the way through the end zone.

so the ball wasnt thrown low and the defender didnt shortcut the route before the hold took place?

even if gronk wasnt held, he would have had to stop all momentum, come back a few yards, and make the defender disappear. if the ball was thrown higher, i could see an arguement, but it wasnt, and the defender made a great break on an underthrown ball

btw, even gronk felt it was the right call

I have to disagree on you saying gronk felt it was the right call. He didn't say it was or wasn't.

I just saw another angle. It was a hold but I doubt he could have made it back in time.

maybe i read this wrong, its hard to understand which way he is going. dame athletes and their goofy interviews

"It just wasn't completed, and there was no flag," Gronkowski said of the play. "There was a flag, but it got called back. I don't even know why they threw it, and there's just no excuse. I'm not trying to be here to make excuses; [the Panthers are] a good football team, they scored more points than us and they beat us straight up."

Ha. All he is thinking is what can I say that will keep Bill off my back.

Gronk's body language suggested that (a) he didn't think he was interfered with and/or (b) that he knew he couldn't catch it anyway. It's not until the flag comes in late that he perks up a little and starts clapping. Seriously, just about every WR and TE in the league would be making the flag gesture if they were breathed on wrong while running their route, especially on a game-winning attempt. Gronk didn't even do that, he just let his shoulders slump and accepted the loss until the penalty was called.

There's no way in hell he could have caught it anyway. His momentum was going to the goal post and his hips were turned the wrong way. Short of breaking the universal laws of physics and assuming the DB who caught it was nowhere in coverage, it still wouldn't have been complete.

I agree and it would be an interesting topic for the Sport Science segment on Sportscenter.

Sportscenter talks about other things besides LeBron James?

Stephen A Smith would determine that lebron would have caught that ball while being hugged in the back of the endzone. just his presence on the field would have made the db pop the ball up and the gravitational pull of Lebrons ego would suck the ball in
