The call this week made me think about the force out rule, and how they got rid of it for this year. Here is a scenario for you to think about:

I'm waiting for the first time that the corner catches the wide receiver, and carries him off of the field on the sideline play, not allowing his feet to touch the ground. Can't you just see a small guy like Welker, jump up to catch the ball, and Dawkins fielding him, and running 10 steps to the sideline to put him down??? As the Denver fans would say IN.........COM......PLETE!!!! ;)

I might be wrong, but I think this was addressed, and the conclusion was that "carrying" a WR in this fashion would be considered as if their forward progress was stopped in bounds, so it would count as a catch...

:confused: Carrying is a judgement call by the official so you're going to be waiting a long time ...

because they all use great judgement! :lmao:
 
WOW...talk about over-analyzing.

The one or two times a year when this may actually happen will be easily recognized.

I mean....how easy do you think it would be for a 220# man to catch in mid-air, while presumably MOVING (running), to CATCH another 200 pound man and CARRY him some distance?

OK...they left the room for a judgement call...but a call that will be made once or twice league-wide for the season, instead of once or twice a game.
