    Right as far as how the the rule is written n the NFL that is it.

    Exactly. It's pretty simple. I'm confused by the debate. Probably incorrectly so, but I generally assume that most people on a football message board played some amount of football at one time or another and learned about the game. The definition of a forward or backward pass is one of the very first things that you learn. It has never once been debatable for me since about 3rd grade unless the ball is directly down the line and there's a bad view/camera angle.
    Insert something clever here...

    I'm not sure how many are debating if it was or wasn't a backward pass according to the rule but whether the rule itself makes sense or the nuances of how a player can toss the ball backward(at an angle) but it travels forward.

I'm still high on UNI this year, though somewhat predictably UNI fan's hopes were a bit overly optimistic with the idea we have this stud QB who is the missing piece. I think Theo Day has great potential, but ultimately it's a 20 year-old kid who is new to the program.
    Benny Sapp's hit was obviously an infraction, but missed calls don't stun me and I don't think it was malicious. But yes dangerous and he should have been ejected.
    Hopefully UNI will get another shot at the Bison in the postseason, but I'm not holding my breath.
    we had a down year in spring 2021. 9-3 & losing in quarters in last minute is our bottom

    To me, that'd be like debating whether or not the ball should instead be a sphere since it would be easier to know where it is going to bounce. You're debating about making it a different fucking game.

    Seems like a strange moment to flex.

    He threw the ball backwards, it traveled forwards, and the pitching player stayed behind it when it was touched. Itís an extremely weird play and has definitely been talked about on other platforms.

    Except that football is a direct descendent of Rugby and they’ve got the rule interpretation being discussed. Also the NFL changes rules all of the time.

    We all live in stories... It seems to me that a definition of any living vibrant society is that you constantly question those stories... The argument itself is freedom. It's not that you come to a conclusion about it. Through that argument you change your mind sometimes... That's how societies grow. When you can't retell for yourself the stories of your life then you live in a prison... Somebody else controls the story. - S. Rushdie

    People bitching about his accuracy also fail to acknowledge he had another game without a pick.

    Last year our QBs threw more picks than TDs and none of them, including Trey Lance in his 1 game, completed more than 51%. of their passes

    QP2 is a special QB with elite skills. What's scary is he can still improve so much and his ceiling is unlimited.
    Yes! Yes! This! The really good news is we are watching QP get better every game right before our eyes. I was ectasy this last game seeing the field spread and QP back to pass on so many downs. I think somebody got to Entz and Rohl or they just finally realized it themselves; if QP doesn't get the actual game experience managing his pocket and making reads in real time competitive action we have no chance to advance in this year's loaded playoff field.

    We may lose a couple on the way but I believe if we just get into the playoffs we can win it all. There other young guys contributing in a major way and they are all getting better. The pro's of having a big strong fast punishing runner for QB are obvious, but if QP can learn fast this year and stay healthy, this offense is uber talented.

    We may even see a few freshman come on later.

    Has anyone seen Chris Harris practice?

    The pitch traveled forward relative to the field. It was a forward pass. This isn't complicated.
