END ZONE

PLAY OF THE WEEK:

New this week

Play: Team A, 3rd and 8 at the A-42. The Quarterback takes the snap and drops straight back in the pocket. Linemen A70 and A73 initially block their defenders and then head downfield to block. Running B A20 slips out of the backfield for a called screen play. He is behind the Line of Scrimmageand the pass sails over his head and lands incomplete at the A-46. A70 and A73 are blocking at the A-48 at the time of the pass. These blocks did not impede any Team B player from making an attempt to catch the pass.


Ruling?

Last week

Play: Team A kickoff from the A-35. The kicker drives the ball into the ground and it bounces twice and goes high into the air. At the A-48, kick receiver B89 goes up with both hands and bats the ball forward to keep the kicking team from recovering the kick. The ball goes out of bounds at the  A-43.


Ruling: Team A should re-kick from  the A-45.  B89 illegally bats the ball forward (9-4-1-c).  This foul carries a 10 yard penalty and will be enforced from the previous spot (10-2-2-d-4-a) and Team A will re-kick.  If Team A decides to decline the foul, it would be Team B’s Ball 1st and 10 at the A-43.

MECHANICS:

New this week

Game Situation: 3rd and 5 at the B-25. Quarterback A6 is in position to receive a shotgun snap. The snap hits A6 in the hands and he fails to catch it. The ball is recovered by B98 at the B-30 where is is tackled. What spots should be marked with a bean-bag on this play?


Answer next issue…

Last week

Game Situation: Should the Umpire should give a tipped ball signal (S11) when a ball kicked from a punt is partially blocked at the line of scrimmage?


Answer: No, the Umpire should not give a signal in this situation.  The Umpire should give the ball tipped (S11) signal only if the kick is touched (but not forced touched) by Team B BEYOND the neutral zone  (M10.8.d.2).
