Manning's "phantom fumble"

Recommended Posts

I watched the end of the Colts game yesterday and saw my live score off sportsline and supposedly, Manning fumbled at some point, but isn't listed on the fumble sheet...

 

that 2 points is "hugh"...anyone have any further insight on this?...

A fumble on a handoff to James. It goes to Manning since "gold tooth" never had possession.

If you look at Team Stats for yesterday's matchup on NFL.com, you will see 1 lost fumble for IND.

 

Also under drive charts, it show the lost fumble by IND.

03:29 0:04 TEN 39 1 -3 Fumble

 

Also in the full play by play it shows the fumble.

 

1-10-TEN39 (3:29) P.Manning FUMBLES (Aborted) at IND 39, RECOVERED by TEN-R.Starks at IND 39. R.Starks to IND 39 for no gain (E.James).

 

This should clear up on Tuesday morning after final updates.

There were two fumbles in that game. C Rick DeMulling fumbled a snap. Later in the game, Manning missed getting the hand-off to Edge on the stretch play.

Yep, that's the case - but that fumble should have gone to Edge! I know that in those situations the fumble often goes to the QB, but in this case Manning but the ball right in Edge's "breadbasket" and it's like his forearms were buttered or something...

We must have been watchinga different game. It seemed to me that Manning hit Edge on the hip with it and he never really got his hands on it. It looks like every handoff is close to this on that stretch play they run so often, but it seemed to me Manning missed on this one.

 

Are you a Manning owner, by chance?

I was at the game, and I watched it on TiVo. It was Manning's fumble.

Edge fumbled.  It's the back's job to protect the ball on a handoff.

Yesterday, Yahoo awarded the fumble to James. I haven't checked today whether or not it was switched.

A player that never has possession can't fumble. At least that 's the way the NFL looks at it.

That's true. Even if the back takes his eye of the ball and over-runs the play.

 

ESPN lists it was Manning's fumble and NFL.com doesn't list it at all.
