I'd say it's up there.

As a gravitationally-enhanced person, I'm impressed when anyone goes parallel to the ground for any reason.

Impressive for an American catch, but I live in a country where footballers can fly, so it hardly rates by AFL standards:

@Ian - Though these are fun to watch, they are in no way as impressive (to me). First, they are all catching with two hands and facing the ball. Second, they are climbing other players to attain the height. Of course, they also have a lot less padding to protect them when they fall.

@Ben - Fair comment, but how many people do you know who can jump and land with their knees on the shoulder of a 7+ foot tall man?

@Ian - That is certainly true. Whether they are the most amazing catches or not, they are certainly very impressive feats of athleticism and skill.
