Tampa Bay- Green Bay

<< < (2/2)

NVFOA_Ump:
  (1) GB's intentional offside just prior to 2 minute warning in 4th;
        Not sure that the NFL has anything  in the rules to cover this outside 2 mins, but I agree with Kalle, decline the penalty
  (2) GB's choice for FG when down by 8;
        Major tactical error not to go for the tie then give Brady the ball back very late in a game when his team is ahead
  (3) Rogers choice to pass into a crowd when road to paydirt looked clear on previous play;
        Sure did look like he could almost score or at least get very close.
  (4) Did Brady's year answer the question : "Who was more responsible for Pat's success, coach or QB?"
        Not at all.  IMHO they are both the very best at what they do.  The Pats got clobbered by Covid19 and the salary cap convergence.
  (5) Who will win the Super Bowl?
        Tough not to like KC with Mahomes, but I would not bet money against Tampa Bay with Brady.

ARTICLE 2. SCRIMMAGE DOWN
Following any timeout (3-37-1), the game clock shall be started on a scrimmage down when the ball is next snapped, except in the following situations:

Whenever a runner goes out of bounds on a play from scrimmage, the game clock is started when an official spots the ball at the inbounds spot, and the Referee gives the signal to start the game clock, except that the clock will start on the snap:
after a change of possession;
after the two-minute warning of the first half; or
inside the last five minutes of the second half.
If there is an injury timeout prior to the two-minute warning, the game clock is started as if the injury timeout had not occurred.
If there is an excess team timeout after the two-minute warning, the game clock is started as if the excess timeout had not occurred.
If there is a Referee’s timeout, the game clock is started as if the Referee’s timeout had not occurred.
*****If the game clock is stopped after a down in which there was a foul by either team, following enforcement or declination of a penalty, the game clock will start as *****if the foul had not occurred, except that the clock will start on the snap if:
*****the foul occurs after the two-minute warning of the first half;
*****the foul occurs inside the last five minutes of the second half; or
*****the offense commits a foul after the ball is made ready for play, and causes the clock to stop before a snap, during the fourth quarter or overtime; or
*****a specific rule prescribes otherwise.

I don't think this is relevant as the game clock would have started at the snap anyway, IIRC. The point of the intentional offside was to take one "extra" down away from TB, so TB could have just declined (and kept on declining, if GB had persisted) the penalty to remain at 2nd and short.
