And he was right. More than a few calls were beyond questionable
The fumble by AR was very questionable.

The INT by King was an interception. He caught it, had two feet down in the end zone, and was tackled. Then the ball came out after he hit the ground in the end zone. No question there.

Did he do C ??

A player who makes a catch may advance the ball. A forward pass is complete (by the offense) or intercepted (by the defense) in the field of play, at the sideline, or in the end zone if a player, who is inbounds:

a. secures control of the ball in his hands or arms prior to the ball touching the ground; and

b. touches the ground inbounds with both feet or with any part of his body other than his hands; and

c. after (a) and (b) have been fulfilled, performs any act common to the game (e.g., tuck the ball away, extend it forward, take an additional step, turn upfield, or avoid or ward off an opponent), or he maintains control of the ball long enough to do so.

Your point is valid but the rule makes no sense.

I agree with cheese. Get rid of the rule and say it is a catch as long as two feet are down in the end zone or not. If he gets hit and the ground causes the fumble, still a catch. If he gets hit and ball comes out before he hits the ground then no catch. JMO.

And I think he did C. :)

Packers place LB Whitney Mercilus on injured reserve, sign LB Tipa Galeai to the active roster & signed LB La'Darius Hamilton and RB Kerrith Whyte to the practice squad and released DL Auzoyah Alufohai (Ah-ZOY-ah Ah-LOOF-oh-hai) from the practice squad. General Manager Brian Gutekunst announced the transactions Tuesday.
Tipa can be a decent situational pass rusher, but he's too small to set/hold the edge in the run game. He's 6-5, but only 229 lbs.
He'll be used pretty much strictly on obvious passing downs.

I found this blip about Whyte.
In short, Whyte possesses a ton of stamina. Once his motor gets going, he’s not an easy man to take down. His secondary burst of speed is elite. This is tough to find in any player, much less in the 2019 NFL Draft. Matching this with his stout 5’10” frame, and this is a beast of a running back. Whyte’s explosion is just ridiculously quick. At his Pro Day, he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.36 seconds. Adding a 42-inch vertical jump may also help his draft status.

Keeping all of this mind, he also is one of the more elusive running backs in the NFL Draft. He makes defenders look silly at times with just a simple change in direction. He may not have been the Owls’ feature back, but Florida Atlantic did benefit from his services along with Devin Singletary.

You can complete C, which is a tuck, then get pummeled to the ground after possesion. TD
Well that’s not the way it’s been called all year. He was not even plummeted. I’ll stand by bad call

Every time I see Tipa Galeai I think of Tilapia LOL
