Bull-fucking-shit it wasn't.

That's what some yahoos are claiming based on this picture:



Obviously, that's a split second snapshot that follows the catch and both feet touching.  It's not too hard to post a picture where his feet are beginning to come off the ground.

This one shows his toes being much closer to (if not touching) the ground:



And, FWIW, here a video of the catch.  You can see he has to elevate slightly to make the catch.  After he does, you can see his feet come down and "bump" the ground.  If you watch very closely, his right foot (the foot in question) appears to turn slightly when that happens.



I'm just putting these up here for reference because I'm sure as time passes, other pictures further confirming that it was a TD will surface.  Feel free to add them here.

Oh, and if somebody runs their mouth complainin' that it wasn't a catch, this serves as a good place to find proof to the contrary.

Rabbit punching and dong dangling Holmes news.  Win the SB MVP and stuff starts popping up, so to speak.  I'm not even posting those pictures.

From the angle of the legs in the top pic, he was already well on his way to falling down. At that point, yeah, the toes came up because he was falling and going out of bounds at that point. Aw hell, why the fuck am I even bothering? Refs called it, so it counts.

Yeah, yeah, I know.

But, it's still fuckin' nice to have visual proof to jam down their gullet.

A guy I was talking to brought up the Holmes catch, and I honestly could not even believe it. How on Earth can you possibly say that he didn't get both feet down? Ridiculous. Needless to say, I ended the conversation pretty quick.

Do you need any more proof than this?

You know what? I'm actually kind of enjoying this. It's like the look on Madden's face every time the Immaculate Reception is brought up. Every time we see Whiz talk about this Super Bowl for the next fifty years, he'll cringe and his left eye will twitch.
