The announcers think that it's all about whether he had control for 2 steps.

IT'S NOT. The question is whether the receiver was going to the ground as he was catching the ball. He was. He lost control upon contact with the ground. Ergo, no catch.

Wait, the announcers are saying you don't have to keep possession to the ground if you're falling out of bounds?

What kind of asinine rule would that be?

He was mistaken lol.

Does the receiver need to maintain even tho he stepped out?

If he's going to the ground as he's making the catch, he need to maintain possession through the ground. He got 2 feet down in bounds, but he was falling to the ground. So, it's irrelevant that the 3rd foot was out, the issue is that he was falling as he was making the catch, and has to retain possession when he hits the ground. Same reason that a guy who taps his toes on a catch and falls out of bounds doesn't catch the ball if he loses it when he hits the ground.

When you're a wide receiver and you hear that you have to do a slant, you get really happy.

It's great to run slants!
