What makes a truly great catch?
Is it a receiver who paws the ball with one hand?
Is it out-jumping a defender for the pigskin in the corner of end zone?
Is it holding onto the rock after getting smacked in the face by a linebacker you never saw coming?
Is it a player tapping his toes just inside the boundary as he falls down with the ball secured?
The truth is that a great catch could be defined by any of these scenarios or many others.
The one thing in common is that a top catch should make you go, "wow."
So what are the top catches so far this season? I don't know for sure, but the 18 grabs on the followings slides made me say "wow." So for now these are my top catches of the 2011 regular season.
