>>63298408 fumble no doubt. even my homer friend thought the refs tossed them a bone with that one. He fucking took 3 steps and turned his body. he just goofed up when he tried to switch hands with it. fumble no doubt.
>>63299064 They're trying to make it as objective as possible. We can debate until hell freezes over whether he had clear possession or not, but two steps/football move and then a fumble is pretty solid and works in most scenarios
Football move or not I feel this sets a pretty dangerous precedent to be allowed to be ruled incomplete. You can see McFadden turn his head and look straight at Avril coming at him. Being that he's still a few yards behind the LoS it would be in a player's interest to just drop the ball (3rd and 10 vs 3rd and 13) if they know in future it'll be ruled as incomplete
>>63303813 >attempted a football move but failed He brought the ball into his chest and took two strides though.
1. Pulls ball against chest, standing on right foot. 2. Steps onto left foot. 3. Steps onto right foot. 4. Lands on left foot as the ball is flying out.
It gets muddy on the possession part. If the ball was secure from time it touched his chest to about the time he lost it, then it's easily a catch. But then the slightest movement of the ball at all during that process can be reason to say it's not secure. It shouldn't take super slow-mo to determine a catch, the rules need to change.
Everyone in this thread is a fucking idiot...even though this gif has the resolution of a potato it is very clear that the ball is moving as he is making his second step, he only makes one full step with full possession. Everyone here needs to learn the fucking rules.
>>63299304 Hope you don't mean da bears game, because that game is perfectly explained, its a TD in the same way a QB gets a TD when the run the ball just over the pylon as they run out. He was an established runner, the fail mary was a joke though.
>>63321405 >If all of these "incomplete passes" were called fumbles, you'd have tons of turnovers and a generally more difficult passing game On the other hand, you'd have a lot of incomplete passes that would be completions.
That was an incomplete pass. He lands on his right foot when possession is starting to begin. He takes a step with his left foot, then when he goes to make a football move on his right foot, it comes out. He never made a football move with possession. He literally has the ball in his hands for 2 seconds
