Default This play happened today.....

Saints at Rams. Brees dropped back under heavy pressure, he stepped up in the pocket and as he did so the ball was stripped out of his grasp. Ball hits the ground and a ram defensive lineman picked the ball up and as he was advancing the ball a saints helmet came off. It was only a difference of a couple yards where they should of brought the ball back but the refs, the NFL must not think its important enough if it happens in the middle of the field.

Thinking of you L. Bell.

The loss of a helmet only ends the play if it's the ball carrier's.

Thanks for the clarification. The guy that lost his helmet for the saints was the player that took the shot and made the tackle. Good rule. Lol.

well, I think the thinking their is that a defender who losses his helmet has a choice to not make a hit, but a ball carrier may take a shot before he can get down or out of bounds.

I thought this thread sas about the first half of the game tonight. For a minute there I thought I was watching the 2008 Steelers play. It felt good. Steelers for some reason seem to play better ball at the end of the season when they are out of the playoff hunt.
