(SportsNetwork.com) - At the end of the day, the call was right and the rule is wrong, but the only process that really mattered on Sunday was the one where Mike Pereira became a bigger story line than Aaron Rodgers or Dez Bryant. Rodgers was nearly perfect on two late scoring drives and his 316 yards passing on a partially torn left calf helped the Green Bay Packers rally from their first Lambeau Field deficit since Week 2 to top the Dallas Cowboys, 26-21, and reach the NFC title game. Those facts bury the lead, though, as Bryant hauled in a catch for the ages late in the game on a 4th-and-2 play from the Green Bay 32, climbing over Sam Shields in circus-like fashion to seemingly put the Cowboys at the 1-yard line, inches away from taking the lead. After review, however, referee Gene Steratore, with help from New York and noted Jerry Jones party bus inhabitant Dean Blandino, ruled that Bryant did not complete the process of the catch, a nod to the so-called Calvin Johnson Rule because Bryant did indeed bobble the football after slamming it on the ground while reaching for the end zone. Sorry @dallascowboys, the Lions organization wrote on Twitter after the play. We know the feeling: #CompletingTheProcess. The irony was strong on all sides because the Cowboys were the recipient of an advantageous non-call on a potential pass interference call last week against the Lions, a development that helped Dallas earn the trip to Lambeau in the first place. This time, by the letter of NFL law at least, the Zebras got it right. Bryant going to the ground. By rule he must hold onto it throughout entire process of contacting the ground, Blandino, the NFLs vice president of officiating, wrote on Twitter. He didnt so it is incomplete. Of course Bryants effort for the ages was a catch in the minds of everyone except those wearing Green and Gold glasses and the NFL, a league hamstrung by over-legislation in which common sense is replaced by five people on the face of the planet who have the ability to explain this nonsense while keeping a straight face. The rest of us learned at a very young age that what Bryant accomplished on Sunday in Green Bay was one hell of a catch -- one that would make Jerry Rice, Randy Moss or Odell Beckham Jr. proud. I by no means cheer for Dallas but I have no idea what or how thts (sic) not called a catch, OBJ tweeted. Thts (sic) a joke. Enter Pereira, the former VP of officiating for the league that now makes his living as a rules analyst. FOX was forced to lead its post-game coverage of the contest with Pereira instead of the brilliance of the injured A-Rod or Dez. And thats a shame as another playoff game is going to be remembered for a good man (Steratore) properly officiating a dumb rule which defies common sense. Ive long argued that the very existence of people like Pereira should highlight the problem. Think about it, are there rules analysts dotting the telecasts of NBA or MLB games? Of course not because there is no need for them. You might argue so and so made a bad call in a particular game but the rules in those sports are straight forward and dont need tortured explanations from people with a PhD in contradiction. In football we have Pereira or Mike Carey to tell us that DeMarco Murray can perform the exact same action as a runner and its Cowboys ball at the one. On the other hand, a receiver like Bryant has to turn from acrobat to running back in one fell swoop before completing the play by holding tightly on the football because the ground can indeed cause a fumble for a pass catcher. A technicality not only ruined a great play, it stained the legacy of a tremendous football game. To his credit Cowboys coach Jason Garrett took the high road after the game, saying he thought it was a catch but This game wasnt about officiating we had 60 minutes to win. Bryant was predictably upset. What am I supposed to do? Im just reaching for the goal line. I dont understand, he said. Im begging them: Please, please, please take that rule out. Dez may get his wish. A trip to the NFC Championship Game or a permanent position on NFL Films greatest plays list might be preferable but this controversy could serve as the impetus for change. After all the only rule worse than this one in the NFL may be the leagues self-imposed degree that ignores proactive measures in favor of reactive ones. Keenan Allen Jersey .J. -- The New Jersey Devils are so bad in shootouts, coach Pete DeBoer doesnt mind seeing his team take chances in the five-minute overtime. Kellen Winslow Jersey . Last year, Matt Kuchar closed with a 4-under 68 to beat Kevin Chappell by two strokes for his second win of the 2013 season and sixth of his career. http://www.chargersauthenticshop.com/Ch ... ft-Jersey/. The deals were announced on Friday. Beckham will receive $4.175 million in base salary, while De Aza will receive $4.25 million. Beckham hit .267 with five home runs and 24 RBIs over 103 games last season, his fifth with the White Sox. Jatavis Brown Jersey . On Wednesday, Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas hit back. In a passionate defence of himself and the London clubs medical staff, the Portuguese coach rebuked the "incompetent people" who have attacked Tottenham for allowing Lloris to continue playing after being briefly knocked unconscious against Everton on Sunday. Joey Bosa Jersey . Thats how the Ravens won when Ryan was their defensive co-ordinator from 2005-08, and that is precisely the formula Baltimore used to beat Ryans New York Jets on Sunday.TORONTO -- Jermain Defoes anguish at being snubbed by England is still keenly felt. It doesnt help that reporters keep asking him about it, each question ripping off another part of the scab. "Every day I wake up, its still frustrating and its still baffling (as) to why I wasnt selected," he said Saturday. "But youve got to move on." The 31-year-old striker wrapped up a week that started with his relegation to Englands World Cup taxi squad with a rocket of a goal to help Toronto FC to a 2-0 win over the New York Red Bulls before 22,591 on a sunny afternoon at BMO Field. In truth, Defoe could have had even more on the day. But his 12th-minute blast into the top of the Red Bulls goal spoke volumes. "Thats exactly how I thought he would react," said Toronto manager Ryan Nelsen, "A brilliant goal, wasnt it? "Thats Jermain Defoe. And thats why England will miss him dearly, I think, come World Cup time." Red Bulls star Thierry Henry was also full of praise. "Jermain Defoe has been doing this since he was 14 years old and as long as he plays he will do that," said the French forward. Defoe downplayed the significance of his strike, "because Ive been doing that for my whole career. And people know that." "Thats what Ive done since Ive been over here," added Defoe, who now has four goals in five MLS games. "Its not my first goal Ive just continued to do what I do. Work hard and stay positive and get my goals." But prompted again, Defoe acknowledged the goal was a littler sweet. "Its only normal, when you get disappointment, to try and prove people wrong. And just to remind people that, at the end of the day, this is what Im doing. And I think I did that today." Defoe, who has 19 goals and 55 caps for his country, could still be called up to the 23-man main England squad in event of injury. Defoe didnt even see his goal go in. He hit it and went flying as a defender clattered into him. "It was funny because I was on the floor," he said. "I looked at the crowd and everyone was celebrating it so I thought OK, it went in." Englands loss is clearly Torontos gain. "Hes a massive part of whats going on here. Our talisman, so to speak. He gets the goals that win us games," midfielder Bradley Orr said of Defoe. Luke Moore scored late in stoppage-time as Toronto snapped its three-game losing streak. On a day where Arsenal won the FA Cup at Wembley, former Gunners star Henry -- while showing flashes of his brilliance -- was relegated to a supporting role as the Red Bulls saw their 10-game unbeaten streak against Toronto snapped. Both Defoe and Henry made their names scoring goals for north London clubs in the English Premier League. Defoe collected 153 goals for Tottenham while the 36-year-old Henry potted 228 for Arsenal. The New York attack also featured English forward Bradley Wright-Phillips, who came into the game leading MLS with nine goals this season. Toronto (4-4-0) had lost four out of its last five games after opening the MLS campaign with two consecutive wins. New York (3-4-5) was coming off an ugly 5-4 loss to the previously winless Chicago Fire, which snapped its four-game undefeated streak. And the Red Bulls looked slopppy Saturday, turning the ball over in the early going.dddddddddddd A poor pass from fullback Kosuke Kimura led to Torontos first goal when Orr beat Dax McCarty to the ball in midfield and drove forward. He spotted Defoe and slotted a perfect pass, with the striker hammering a right-footed rocket into the top of the net in the 12th minute. Orr, a defender, moved into midfield to help fill the void left by Michael Bradley (with the U.S. World Cup team), Brazilian winger Jackson (concussion) and newly acquired Collen Warner (suspended). He gave all the credit to Defoe on the goal, saying he made the move that created the opening for the pass. "He makes your mind up. His movements that good. World-class. He makes your mind up," said Orr, who had a fine game. Moore, in his home debut, scored his first goal for Toronto with a tap-in after a defensive miscommunication. A long goal kick by Torontos Joe Bendik turned into disaster for New York when goalie Luis Robles collided with defender Chris Duval, leaving Moore to dribble the ball in. Still it was far from a complete performance from an undermanned Toronto squad. At times, the Red Bulls sliced through the home side but could not finish. Toronto wobbled early in the second half and New York missed a glorious opportunity to tie it in the 62nd minute when Wright-Phillips, facing an empty goal, shockingly skied the ball after Bendik palmed away a dangerous cross. Both teams have lost stars to the World Cup: fullback Roy Miller (Costa Rica) and midfielder Tim Cahill (Australia) for New York and Bradley (U.S.) for Toronto. Goalie Julio Cesar, who had been slated to play for Toronto on Saturday before joining Brazil, was out with the flu. The game may cost Toronto. Midfielder Jonathan Osorio played the whole game despite having his hand stepped on in the opening minutes. He was due for an X-ray later, amid fears of a fracture. Toronto started rookie Nick Hagglund at centre back, shifting Doneil Henry to the bench. In his last three games, the 21-year-old Canadian international has given up two penalties and a giveaway that led to a goal. Nelsen offered a different explanation, saying Henry had played 120 minutes during the midweek Amway Canadian Championship semifinal in Vancouver and had a sore quad and head knock. "I just felt like he needed a rest and Nick had kind of deserved his chance," Nelsen said. Faced with one of the games greats in Henry, Hagglund acquitted himself well on the day. Henry introduced himself to Hagglund by racing past the rookie and then felling him with a late tackle that earned a yellow card in the sixth minute. On the plus side, Hagglund got to shake hands with a repentant Henry. A laughing Hagglund said his thought at the time was "Foul me again, Ill shake your hand again." The Red Bulls had not lost to Toronto since June 24, 2009, a 7-0-3 stretch that saw them outscore TFC 25-5. "Obviously, the first half we werent good enough," said New York coach Mike Petke, who took solace in an improved second-half showing. "The pitch was a bit bobbly but that was no excuse for how bad on the ball we were. We had too many giveaways, too many loose passes and too many instances where we gave them the ball back too easily."
