    I'm not sure if that's some sort of weird quirk in the rules, but Brady didn't fumble the ball, Moss did.

    I disagree. Brady lateraled, and it hit the ground before Moss had full possession of it. It seems to me that should be a Brady fumble.

    Don't know if it went down in the stat sheet that way.

    I agree. Moss never had control. You can't fumble unless you have control. Therefore, the fumble had to be Brady's.

    I was a Brady fumble just like if a screen goes wrong or a pitch ever it's the last person to have full control of the ball to get the fumble stat. However it can also go down as a dropped pass by moss.

    It went down on the stat book as a fumble.

    No it can't, because it wasn't a forward pass.

    As long as it doesnt go down as an incomplete pass and screw up his passer rating this year. He's killing the passing stats, fumbles, who cares.
