he fell b/c he got hurt and was down before throwing the ball up. The play should have been whistled dead. It wasn't as soon as he hit the ground, he was down already making no attempt to get up when he flipped it up.
They blew that replay review as well as the Epps fumble on the Tebow pass. That's not why we lost but they were horrific calls.
Players that get injured and fall to the ground are not immediately declared down. Holmes never declared himself down. He went down because of an injury not because he was giving himself up. He gave the ball up in less than 1 second after he hit the ground. You are being so biased. You say the Holmes play should have been whistled dead, but you argue that the Cruz play against the Cardinals last year should have been ruled a fumble.
