Ok all of you NFL fans… I have a question for you. This question centers around two rules: the first being that in the NFL, for a catch in the end zone to be a touchdown the player must have both feet inbounds when he comes down; and the second being that as long as the ball has crossed the plane of the endzone it is a touchdown. Here’s my hypothetical… What is the result when a player jumps into the air over the endzone line and catches a ball (while technically in the endzone), however, before both of his feet touch in the endzone, the top half of his body leans forward (this includes the ball) over the endzone line (back out of the endzone towards the one yard line). It is this way when he touches the ground. Is it a touchdown, since the ball crossed the plane, and his feet were technically in the endzone when he landed with the ball…. or is it not a touchdown, since the ball was technically still on the playing field and not in the endzone when his feet touched and when he was down?
Yeah, you read that right. This column is going to be all about me picking games with a hatchet. For those of you that don’t know me, my name is Becca, and in the sense of full disclosure, I’m dating Ryan, one of the creators of this little blog. I figured if the Champ gets a column just for living with Doug, well then I have definitley earned a place on here. What gave me a perfect opportunity to get a spot on here is the simple fact that our friend Lance has been messing up his picks lately. Ok, he has been absolutely atrocious with his Stone Cold Locks of the Week. I mean 1-5, at that rate he’s going to have more than law school loans to pay off. So as a possible incentive for Lance to pull his head out of his ass we decided to hold a little competition to see who’s the better prognosticator.
