Agreed. Monk's foot was clearly out of bounds.

It isn't a question of "inadvertent or not." If Monk would have come
down with both feet inbounds, he should get the catch. This isn't an
interference penalty. Considering that only an inch of one foot came
down out of bounds, I'd say the push might well have forced his foot
out. Monk is an expert at keeping his feet inbounds; I find it hard
to believe that he'd miss like that.
My question relates to the field official's call. His call was
"inbounds, good catch." There was no need to determine whether or not
the receiver was pushed. Now the replay official says that Monk
*wasn't* in. Shouldn't the field official get to decide whether Monk
was pushed? If he's inbounds, pushing doesn't matter. If not, the
push is important. Why can't the on-field official state that Monk
