Cowboys fans were upset about the most amazing catch of Dez Bryant’s NFL career, and I too was upset. I felt the NFL dropped the ball on the call, but today Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones admitted it was the right call according to the rules in an interview with ESPN on Tuesday.

“As it turns out, according to the rule, I think the call was correct,” Jones said.

Jones still would like the rule changed, and hopes the NFL looks into it. 

“Now, going forward is there a better way that some of these plays that are made by great players like a Dez Bryant or a Calvin Johnson, is there a way to tweak a rule to where you can say, ‘Hey those guys really caught those footballs and they should be catches even under the NFL rules?’ Well, that’s the job of the Competition Committee and for us to continue to look at ways to get better,” Jones said.

Cowboys fans how does this make you feel?
