  1. Also questioning fumble touchback. Clearly had possession before going into endzone. Momentum exception would put it at the 1, not a touchback.

  2. Darin of course you are correct. Ben and company only parrot what joe and troy tell them or dean tells them to say . Maybe a safety there or ball at 1 but certainty not a touchback.

    T bone

  3. “Gained possession with left leg touching the goal line so it is a touchback.”

    What rule number says you can have a touchback with the ball outside the endzone on a fumble? The exception “it is a touchback…touches a player of the kicking team who is touching the ground on or behind the receiver’s goal line” only applies to scrimmage kicks.

  4. This crew sucks Vinovich sucks. Clearly a facemask on Rodgers and the no slide against Rodgers. Pitiful and embarrasing. No wonder fans think its rigged
