Re: "It's always been a fumble"
After the way they did the Luck call (the ball clearly goes away from the LOS when it leaves his hand) not at least calling it a live ball as a backwards pass they had to change the rule. Otherwise the sack would be virtually eliminated. QBs would be taught this offseason that if they are being sacked to start the tuck motion and spike the ball at their feet. At least 80% of sacks would turn into incompletions. I was sort of looking forward to this gross abuse of a stupid rule, in a sick sort of way.
