    If that's for real, man, officiating in the NFL has gotten to an all time low. The PI calls in the Patriots - Bears game were really ticky tacky too. Love that alliteration. Seriously, unless I see Ed Hochuli and his crew out there, I have no faith in what's coming.

    I remember this rule being applied many years ago. In 1976, when Mike Haynes was a rookie, he was returning a punt in a pre-season game. I think it was in some less than perfect field and he returned the punt to the 5 yard line, and thinking it was a touchdown, spiked the ball. It was ruled an illegal forward pass, and the Patriots were awared the ball after a 5 yard penalty.

    I wonder if it is like the tuck rule that ANY forward flip is considered a pass, and any backward flip is a lateral (and thus a fumble)
