Default No more Tuck Rule!?

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"?!?

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.

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