Is This a Touchdown ?

Talk about the AFC, NFC, the NFL Draft, College Football... anything football that has no Washington Redskin relevance.

Is This a Touchdown ?

Yes. Dude caught it cleanly, got a knee down before being touched, broke the plane.

No. None of the above matters. Going to the ground was unavoidable the moment the catching process began and he simply did not maintain control throughout contact with the ground.

An interesting exchange ending with perhaps the most ignorant post in the history of this site since being down BY CONTACT on the NFL requires, ahem, CONTACT.

Just to clarify:

Are you saying it is not a TD because he is down by contact before the ball crosses the goal line?

Digging ancient threads out of the relics archive isn't going to change the narrative that in the end, the NFL sunk anything you've got to say on their behalf

Ball was trapped by James. He never maintained control. Dez Bobbled it the entire time he was trying to catch it. He might have actually caught it. Had he kept both hands on it. But, he didn't maintain control of it. Which means it was not a catch. Both plays were ruled IN-Com-PLETE. Time to get over it.

Trapped? yet the issue is securing not how he secures the pass that is in question here

Simple fact is you think if an NFL runner falls down on his own that he's down by contact and you cite rule 7a which clearly states that is not the case.

Simple fact is you think the NFL and NCAA rules ares the same and every other person on this board knows that is flat out wrong.

Rule 7a mandates contact by a defender before anything else.

Jesse James simply cannot be down by contact at the one yard line since no defender has touched him yet and he is in the NFL not the NCAA.

You lose.

Correct 99.9% of the plays generally end in some form of contact whether out of bounds, In the end zone even attempts at going out of bounds but to say "runners" don't lose footing is absurd players loose footing quite often due to poor field conditions like weather or poor maintenance

not going to buy that carry on

Who said that ??? :hmm:

YOU said Jesse James was down by contact before the ball crossed the goal line even though he had not yet been touched. He wan't down by contact at the one.

YOU said the same rule applies in the NFL and the NCAA. The same rule does not apply.

Yep I said it down once again rule 7 (E) a player can ground himself 7 (A) a player is down when a body part other than a hand or foot strikes the turf, the continuation of the set "rule" makes it clear a player is only
allowed to advance the ball only when? a hand or foot touches first, James already secured the catch, his
leg is clearly on the turf and YES even manages to get "touched" by a defender

all within the requirements of the leagues very own "rules" for maintaining "possession" through out the
process

Yet you want to argue that this is not true because the league claims that a ball that touches the turf
after a player is already down, automatically makes the process void, Good luck getting any current or
even former head coach or player to buy that line

it won't happen not even the media buys it and if that doesn't convince you nothing will
