  • All turnovers now subject to review

    Just like the touchdown rule implemented last year now all turnovers will be subject for an officials' review. Will slow down the game immensely. Adam Schefter ? @AdamSchefter Reply Retweet Favorite Open
    All turnovers now will be subject to review like scoring plays. No coaching challenged will be needed.

    This will make the game faster... no long stupid coach challenges on turnovers that are obvious.

      They will still be reviewed? Are you trying to say that there was no cases this year where a touchdown was quite clearly a touchdown and was still reviewed?

        Turnover takes place... all changes in possession usually go straight to commercial break... booth official will now confirm the play soon after the turnover, or during the commercial break now. If it needs to be reviewed, the review will begin while commercial break is still taking place.

        This is what was happening:
        A questionable turnover would take place on the field. The game goes to a commercial break because the play stands as a turnover at the moment. We get back from commercial break and THEN the coach throws the challenge flag before the snap of the next play. We would then have to wait for that review to take place, and potentially go right back to another commercial break.

            Just like the TD rule it first has to be declared a TO.......won't include plays that should be turnovers but weren't ruled as such on the field.....so an obvious fumble that wasn't called a fumble won't get a review unless challenged......blows.....

              +1. I love the college football system, and am glad the NFL is adopting it.

              EDIT: Is it just all turnovers, or all plays? I thought I got an ESPN update earlier that said all plays are now going to be reviewed?

                It could slow the game down but in the end I think it will speed it up. The coaches won't have to wait until someone sees a replay and then throw the flag.

                  Awful decision. Let's just review all plays by instant replay. So dumb, I don't believe in replay and never have. Human error is part of sports. Why have on field officials at all. The league office can just replay every play and call penalties and assess fines.

                    If the review happens during the commercial break this will be awful for the TV viewer. If this is how its going to be I hate this rule.

                      Why? It won't be in commercials for full review, most likely due to timing ref will be close to coming out of the booth when the break end.

                        At first blush I didn't like it because I hate reviews, but if it does take place during downtime it will be great. As it is today, the coaches use that 2 minutes to review the film, then throw the challenge when we come back from break (causing another 2 minute delay).

                        Now if the NFL would only move the replay review to somebody upstairs rather than having the ref walk over to the peep show booth....

                          Ummm...who cares if it slows the game down? I am a bit more concerned with get it right not get it over quick.

                            thank goodness for that ... that crazy call vs. us in the GB games still baffles me




                            only problem is the refs still have those pesky whistles and can still jack things up if they blow them too soon or too late ... still a step in the right direction

                              I have mixed feelings on this... Kind of dilutes the value of coach's challenges a bit on one hand but on the other makes for a more fairly called game when the refs are being ridiculous and you have to blow all your challenges just to get the obvious calls.

                              I'll have to wait to see it in action, at least they brought the OT rules into reg season though, still could use tweaking IMO
