Brady's Fumble

I haven't seen or heard this mentioned much. :D

 

When Brady dropped the ball and then fell on it, wasn't he then downed by contact?

 

The Eagle player (?) fell on him and rolled him over to one side and the ball came loose. Shouldn't the play have been blown dead as soon as Brady was touched on the ground with the ball under him? They didn't show many replays and the red flag stayed in Belichick's pocket, so maybe the ball was never covered by Brady?

 

That play was huge, because it turned a rout (read: cover spread) into a close

game.

 

Any insights on the play? :D

Isn't covering the ball on the ground possession?

 

Or he just didn't cover it long enough?

I think that is the point....he never covered the ball up. Or rather,....it didn't look like he did to me on the replays.

The ball was still bouncing around - he never really recovered it.

 

It was pretty clear, which is why no one is talking about it.

After reading the post here a couple of weeks ago about what really goes on at the bottom of those pig piles, I don't think I would have really jumped on top of the ball either! :D

It did seem that an awful lot of the players had their nuts grabbed in those piles.
