Doesn't matter, you're allowed to do that on kick offs, just can't be the first to touch it.

49er fan. Your team played great but here's football 101. Yes he was out of bounds, BUT he was NOT THE FIRST to touch the ball because the 49er returner touched it with his knee.

It was already touched by another player, no foul. He can't be the first player to touch the ball. Don't be a sore loser

I mean everyone explained it already, but to explain it again:

You can touch the ball after running out of bounds, you can not be the FIRST. Thomas was back in bounds when the ball hit Williams' knee, therefore, Thomas could touch it.

It touched the SF player AFTER he established himself back in play. He wasn't the first to touch the ball so the play is legal.</P>

First off I am neither a Giants fan or SF fan. I had to google it today to see if anyone else saw the out of bounds thing either and this page came up. Did Devin Thomas cheat? Nah not really. Did he and the Giants get away with one, ABSOLUTLEY!

RULE 9 Scrimmage Kick Section 1 Article 4 states : " During a punt that crosses the line of scrimmage, and prior to a change of possession, it is a foul if a kicking team player goes out of bounds voluntarily (with out being contacted) prior to the end of the kick" Penalty loss of 5 yards

With that being the rule it should have been a 5 yard penalty on Thomas for running out of bounds re-punt Giants. "Gunners" are taught to run along "out of bounds" because if they are "HIT" "out of bounds" it is a 15 yard personal foul penalty on the receiving team. It allows the gunner to use speed to get by the blocker without being touched. When the gunner comes back into the field of play and both feet are established in bounds or he is contacted by another player he is then established again. The player by rule "has to try to get back in bounds as soon as possible". Thomas did not do that either.

It is a call you rarely see but it is in the rule book. I have only seen it called a handful of times, but...End result, refs missed it didn't call it, Giants got away with it. It's only illegal if you get caught.

RULE 9 Scrimmage kick Section 2 Article 3 states: "A player of the kicking team, who has been out of bounds, may not touch or recover a scrimmage kick beyond the line of scrimmage until it has been touched by a kicking team player who has not been out of bounds, or until it has been touched by a player of the receiving team beyond the line." (NOTE: If a player touches or recovers the ball before he has re-established himself in bounds, the ball is out of bounds at the spot of the touch, and there is no foul.)

I believe he re-established himself in the field of play so the recovery ruling was upheld and valid.

Hey SF had plenty of chances to win this game they just didn't take advantage of them.

thats interesting but thomas was BLOCKED out of bounds. that happens all the time and is not a personal foul on the return team for doing so. also he re-established himself in bounds. and he didnt purposely run out of bounds AT ALL, he was sprinting down, got blocked out of bounds, re-established himself in bounds, then recovered. that was a legal play.

know what isnt legal, that BS multiple player motion the 9ers like to do to draw a team offsides. now that needs to be addressed this offseason or u'll see teams doing all sorts of "motion" formation shifts. and the way in which the 9er players do it is a dramatic, blatant motion to mimick a snap.

I could care less who won the game. I am a Steelers fan and were out anyway. I am just saying the refs missed a call on a big play. Like they miss holding calls and interferance calls etc.. It looks like someone else saw it too even if he is a SF fan or whatever.
I watched the replay and Thomas used his speed to run toward the sidelines and around the defender voluntarily and continued to run out of bounds for 20 yards when clear of the defender. In those 20 yards he had pleanty of opportunity to get back in the field of play but didn't. Because if someone hit him while running out of bounds it is a personal foul for hitting a player out of bounds.(rarely called but saw it in a Eagles Cowboys game once) and the Giants would have gotten the ball back because it was before a possession change.Thomas was smart to do what he did and got away with it, good for him it worked out. Thomas got down there the fastest way he could and recoverd the ball after it hit a 49er. end of story. I am objective to ref calls good or bad when watching the NFL and call it like I see it. Just wanted to see if anyone saw it that way.

Had this same argument with my father-in-law.. he is a 9ers fan. Tried to explain to him that he wasn't the first to touch the ball because it bounced it touched a 9er first. He didn't want to hear it, but just like you, he was wrong.

I watched the replay and Thomas used his speed to run toward the sidelines and around the defender voluntarily and continued to run out of bounds for 20 yards when clear of the defender. In those 20 yards he had pleanty of opportunity to get back in the field of play but didn't. Because if someone hit him while running out of bounds it is a personal foul for hitting a player out of bounds.(rarely called but saw it in a Eagles Cowboys game once) and the Giants would have gotten the ball back because it was before a possession change.Thomas was smart to do what he did and got away with it, good for him it worked out. Thomas got down there the fastest way he could and recoverd the ball after it hit a 49er. end of story. I am objective to ref calls good or bad when watching the NFL and call it like I see it. Just wanted to see if anyone saw it that way.

Just think if they didn't have instant replay and challenges.



What are the results of your analysis for the rest of the game?

You did check every play, right? All the un-called holding penalties on the 49 O-line? The defensive holding calls on the 49 defensive backfield? The facemasking (not called) on the 49 defensive back on that incomplete pass (was actually DPI) in the 3rd quarter?

Don't tell me you only looked at one play.

Please post the results of your analysis of all the other plays, I"m interested to see how it all balances out because I saw a lot of holding in that 49 secondary.

I could care less who won the game. I am a Steelers fan and were out anyway. I am just saying the refs missed a call on a big play. Like they miss holding calls and interferance calls etc.. It looks like someone else saw it too even if he is a SF fan or whatever.

Also saw 49er defenders driving Eli into the ground after he threw the ball a couple of times, but no roughing the passer penalties called...

Let's be patient. We only asked for his full game analysis a few minutes ago. I'm sure he will be providing it shortly. I doubt he'd try to cherrypick one play to make his case, I mean that would be embarrassing.

Am I the only one in the country that noticed that Devin Thomas ran for 20+ yards out of bounds before taking possession of the ball that bounced of of the SF players knee???

YOU are VERY DUMB. Learn the rules. He CANNOT TOUCH THE BALL FIRST.

Maybe if Candlehit had more than 2 cameras they could of reviewed it.

Nothing illegal about what he did.
