To sum it up easily, Calvin Johnson caught the ball, which would normally indicate a touchdown. Since the rules were invoked so as to inflict harm to the Lions the Bears would not have won the game without the officials’ meddling and they needed a special call to have the game given to them as a pity-gift. I normally say all the rules should be enforced equally and then re-wrote if the rules are stupid. In this case the rule needs to be ignored and should have been ignored considering the immense technicalities raised to call catch something that was not a catch. This rule should not have been invoked; the rulebook needs to be rewritten, preferably before the next game (fat chance); the game should retroactively granted to the Lions.

No true Bears fan should be proud of this game. He or she should be ashamed.
