6 or a kind-of 5.5. Assume he's a half decent jumper?

Given anyway.
One of those times where access to many angles of slow-mo replays really just complicates things more than anything.

Yeah. He had "control" the moment he caught it imo. The tackler arrives on his back and causes him to starts falling so he has to move his arms not to faceplant.

Anyway, if you catch it and hold it after it's on the ground then who cares. Just a weird rule coming from a rugby background.

Super bowl is about as much NFL as I can stomach each year.

Drags on a bit though.
Does it what. 2+ hours so far, of which only 30 minutes has been actual game time. x(
Isn’t the ball in actual play for on average 11mins?
That's abysmal.

Last two drives have been practically uncontested. If the Eagles stop scoring they might be in real trouble.

Eagles need to score again. And again and again. their defense isn't gonna win them this game on current form. Wonder how Does responds to this pressure.

Really? It’s the style of game it is. Go and time from a league play of the ball to the effected tackle. Or from the cricket bowler release to the end of the play. It is what it is.

Gronkowski is 1.98m and 120kg, bloody hard to defend against.
