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.

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.
