Please be true.

A proposal from the NFL's competition committee suggests the NFL abandon the infamous "tuck rule," which gained popularity during a New England Patriots playoff win over the Oakland Raiders in January 2002.

Under the proposed rule change, a quarterback who loses control of the football when bringing it back to his body after a pump fake will be deemed to have fumbled. Under the current rule, such a play would result in an incompletion.

It's a proposal, might pass, might not. I hope it does, it helps defenses, which is something this league really needs right now.

"Gained popularity"?!?
:toropalm:
WTH are they talking about??
Gained infamy is more like it. I guess when your office is down the street from Patriot-ville that's the only viewpoint you can see.

Or as in Brady's case, a QB that brings the ball back to his body, puts both hands on it, is then stripped of the ball, will be deemed a fumble also. Oh wait, that's always been a fumble. I guess this will just close the loop hole that allowed Arkansas dairy farmer and KC Chief fan Walt Coleman to throw that game.

Brady is about to retire in a few tears so this will gain traction

Could've beaten Indy if this rule was removed before the season.
