View Full Version : I Thought They Said That The Tuck Rule Was A Goner?

It's only a fumble now if the QB loses the ball....and is deemed to be bringing the ball back in..............but will still be an incomplete forward pass if he loses it with his arm going forward????

Did i understand that correctly, and if so, wasn't it the arm going forward for an incomplete pass business what made the rule so dumb in the first place?

Or did they change that and just get rid of it completely?
I'm confused

they got rid of the tuck rule completely.

if the passer is throwing the ball but it gets knocked down before it completely leaves his hand, its an incomplete.

I wish they'd bring back this tuck rule:
