    I'm aware but was trying to illustrate a point but I missed. On the second point - well that's just like, your opinion man.

    • I think the original intent way back in the day was so that you couldn't "oops, I fumbled the ball into the end zone" and have your teammate fall on it, but didn't they amend the rule years ago that you couldn't advance a fumble, if the offensive team recovers, its at the spot of the fumble?

      So the reasoning is now moot, so it should be treated like any other fumble that goes out of bounds.
      What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

        That was the fumble rule, because of a famous forward fumble by... I wanna say the Chargers.*

        But as you said, that is taken care of by the rule that you cannot gain yardage via fumble. If the offensive team recovers it's back at the spot of the fumble.

        AFAIC a fumble through the end zone should be treated the same as an incompletion. Spot back at the prior line of scrimmage. There's no risk because a team cannot score a TD trying one. And the chance they take is the D recover in the EZ in which case touch back.

        * Edit: Raiders vs Chargers, 1978. I should have guessed it was Oakland cheating.

            That fumble rule is only for fourth downs or fumbles in the last two minutes. Any other time during the game if it's fumbled, it can be recovered and advanced by anyone on the offense.

                  Remember when the Lions could have traded down and drafted Justin Herbert? Pepperidge Farms does, though I'm sure it slipped Bob Quinn's mind. 9 games with one interception from an already injured cornerback worked just as well, though.

                    Hopefully he'll be traded to a team that actually has potential to win a SB. Not sure who that will be- although maybe New Orleans now that they have a gaping hole behind the center.

                      I'd like to see NE take a flier on him.

                      • Dumb question, who cares if you advance a fumble? That’s such a high risk play. I’m sure there was a once in a billion freak play that resulted in a darling team losing in the playoffs to flyover country. But ffs, you put the ball on the ground, that’s your choice.


                        Hell, football would be way, way more enjoyably insane if every ball were live, by air or by land. No more subjective tuck, “football move”, intent, whatever.

                          That's another way to do it, certainly.

                          The best way to make football more enjoyable is no clock stoppages. Play the entire game within one 60 minute interval with no quarters or halftime.
