  • cant advance a fumble? thats stupid rule

    The play that hit the returners leg makes it a fumble why would they make a rule that you cannot advance the ball when every other fumble you can seems inconsistent to me!!!

          The returner never had the ball and the ball touched him that is why the defender can't run with it since he can down the ball at the spot on returns.

            Assumably the rule is there to keep the kicking team from squibbing it at their opponents.

            Bad rule imo.

                Why is that a stupid rule? The player is stopped and being pushed back. So them they should down him where they tackle him?

                  [quote user="MikeIsaGiant"][quote user="slipknottin"]its not a fumble, its a muffed punt, thats why.[/quote] hmmmm, but he was progressing no? Wouldn't that count as a fumble? If he was standing still and dropped it, wouldn't that be a muffed punt?[/quote]




                  I learned this one the hard way while coaching pee wee football and one of our guys picked up a muff and went all the way only to get the ball at the spot of the muff, another stupid rule.

                      Yes the rule is you cant advance a muff... but the real question is why?




                      For all those so quick to say "its the rule", yeah ok no one's doubting that but what's the spirit of the rule?

                        Giants also got lucky at the end of the game when they didn't call a fumble on whoever it was. Guy clearly fumbled it but idiot ref blew his whistle way early. Ref clearly cost the 49ers the game but giants played well.

                          His foward progress was stopped and he was actually moveing backwards when he was stripped. and not to mention the whistle.

                            Are you going to post this in every thread? You're embarrassing us. Starting to sound like the Nawlins fans last week. Let it go and just admit we were outplayed on a couple of key plays and made too many mistakes.

                              Forget the whistle, his forward progress was stopped an he was being pushed back. It's just like when a guy make s catch for a 1st down and gets pushed back. They give him the ball where his forward progress was stopped. They did not get lucky there. It is a rule and not a new one. Very easy call for the ref to make.
