Packers star cornerback says Dez Bryant did make the catch over him

dez bryantWhile everyone is worried about DeflateGate, I am still sort of upset about the Dez Bryant catch that was overturned.  If it helps Cowboys fans out, the person covering Bryant on the play Sam Shields told ESPN.com, that it was in fact a catch.

“It was a catch,” Shields said, “But the new rule and at the last minute what happened, that’s what the refs came up with. I never said he didn’t catch it. He made a helluva catch I was in great coverage. Like I said, it was good on good and he came up with the catch.”

Shields seems surprised that Bryant reaching for the goal line didn’t constitute a “football move” that would make it a catch.

“I did look back and I seen him reaching and I guess that’s when he didn’t control the ball as he was doing that,” Shields said.
