:confused: I thought if your knee is down your down by contact,when the pack pulled this play and the holders knee is down already should he not be ruled down and can not toss a forward pass or is there a different rule for punts/kickoffs?

well if he's ruled down with a knee down then the ball would be dead before the kicker could kick it

I realize that I just wasn't sure if he could toss a fwd pass.If a QB was on a knee and it was hiked for whatever reason would he not be ruled down?

An opposing player has to touch him while his knee is down. Elbows and forearms and pretty much anything besides your hands and feet count the same as your knees as well.

You're thinking of the college rule, where there's an exception for holders on a kick. Otherwise he would be down in college.
