NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders is the latest personality to weigh in on the controversial call that decided Sunday’s Dallas-Green Bay NFC playoff match-up.

Referees overturned a 31-yard Dez Bryant reception late in the fourth quarter, forcing Dallas to turn the ball over on downs to the Packers with just seconds left on the clock. (RELATED: The “Dez Bryant Call” Put These Drunk Cowboys Fans In A Fightin’ Mood)

The former Cowboy stated that while the refs technically made the right call, the NFL needs to seriously consider changing the “Calivin Johnson” rule. Head over to TMZ to check out his comments.

The best part of his answer comes after the reporter asks why the refs never overturned any of Sanders’ questionable catches: “Well, it wasn’t no question… cuz I made them do what they did.” I’m not exactly sure what that means, but it’s definitely classic “Prime Time.”
