  1. Redskins Rams Post Game Assessments

    You are confusing two different things. If the receiving team commits a foul while the ball is in the air then the penalty is marked off from where the ball is fielded, not where the penalty occurred. In that case the penalty is described as post possession change, even if the returning team hasn't fielded the ball yet. So, if the Redskins had no committed a face mask then the penalty would have been half the distance to the goal from the 2 where the ball was fielded. Since the Redskins committed their penalty after possession then they offset and the ball goes to where the change of possession occurred. Yes, if you are 100% certain that during live action the hold/block in the back occurred in front of where the ball was fielded and after the returner caught the ball then it would be a good idea to go ahead and commit a foul to have them offset. Even then you have to be sure that simply tackling the player and marching them back = less yards then just making the tackle without a penalty.

    Crowd source the speech to the RTT. Let us each write a line. I'll start. A Toast! To my sister and her new husband. I hope their wedding is as blissful as that one time in high school when we.......

    But that happens all the time on kickoffs. Team fields the kick at the 10, commits a hold or block in the back, and they start at the 5.

    What if he had fielded it at the 30 and they got it there? The only part that's making it unfair in your eyes is the location they fielded it at.

    Why is it unfair?
  6. Redskins Rams Post Game Assessments

    Yes. It's how it's written since both fouls happened AFTER the rams fielded the kick. That's the key part. If the rams declined the penalty on the Redskins then their foul is enforced from where they fielded the ball (ie half the distance to the goal) Example: Team K punts from midfield. R10 fields the punt at his 10-yard line and advances to his 25. During the kick, R14 holds K32 who is covering the kick at R’s 20. So the foul is half the distance to the goal from the 10 where the ball was fielded. Yesterday the K team had a foul also after the ball was fielded. So the penalties offset and the ball is placed where possession changed.

    Eastern NC has a crap ton of talent. Now getting them qualified is another story.

    Music is changing, it's been happening for a few years. Beck is ahead of the curve and has done wonders here.
