I'm not 100% sure. I'm guessing it still is because if that rule was changed, then we most likely would have heard about it by now throughout various sports media.

Yes and in 2008, my Cards were robbed of a TD against Dallas for the same thing. Romo was in the act of throwing but he pulled the ball in, turned his back to the defender, got hit, the ball popped out, and it was recovered. Romo argued it was the "tuck rule" and the officials agreed. The problem I had with it was when Romo was pulling the ball down, he was facing the back of his endzone so even if it were an incomplete pass, as it were, it was a backward pass hence a lateral hence still a fumble. However, if that was allowed to stand, we wouldn't have had this:

I'm tired of the NFL's stupidity when it comes to some types of plays. all turn overs should be subject to instant replay and no ball should be called dead until the play comes to a stop, it's frustrating as a fan to watch games end on stupid calls or the outcome be affected by stupid calls.

San Deigo-Denver game last year
Green Bay-Cards playoff game
All Tuck rule games

What's the issue here? It was a clean fumble. In fact, the ball never hit the ground. It came out of Roger's hand, hit his foot, and went right to Dansby. Here is the play:

Now if you're going to cry about a phantom facemask, then you don't know the rules of the game. No one on the Packers complained, not even Rogers because it was incidental contact. Don't whine because your team lost.

That wasn't my point. My point was that all such plays should be reviewed. even it is upheld. i don't care if it's a play like that, a tuck rule or w/e. It should be reviewed, especially a playoff game. there were a lot of bad calls in that game, as there are all season.

the '98 Packers-49er's playoff game is a prime example of that, and it's the game that pushed instant replay back into the NFL.

Can't believe it's finally here. Anyone picking New Orleans over Minnesota?

I am, and most people actually are. MN has 3, THREE Cornerbacks. Brad Childress is a moron and horrible Football coach, his personel and playcalling prove that. the only reason they had the season they did last year was due to Favre.

I'm not too thrilled with my team's prospects this season with Derek Anderson as QB.

The Cards situation reminds me of the Vikings one with Rosenfeld and Jackson, the personally feelings from the HC got in the way of what is best for the Team.
