The Tuck Rule

By Kipper @pghsportsforum
It was no surprise that the N.F.L. voted to get rid of the tuck rule. The surprise,for me,was the Steelers were the only team to vote against it!:confused:
Also, the infamous “tuck rule” was eliminated by a 29-1-2 vote. The Steelers voted against the rule change while the Patriots and Redskins abstained. The tuck rule allowed a fumbled ball moving forward in the hand of a quarterback to be called an incomplete pass. It became famous in 2001 when Tom Brady dropped a ball while starting a passing motion during a snowy 2001 playoff game against the Oakland Raiders.
