A question for commissioners

Postby CapitalGoofBall » Wed Nov 16, 2005 9:24 pm

What are you calling the missed field goal that was returned for 108 and a TD for Chicago? Are you calling this a special Teams/Defensive Touchdown? Or what? Sportsline has yet to put up any points or even a note about this so I thought I would try out the Cafe for insight.

It should go down as a defensive TD with defensive return yards if you award for them. It is not a TO nor a return.

In my league it was counted as a Defensive/Special Teams TD. Our Dfense and Special Teams is lumped together. On NFL.com they called it a 108 Yard Missed Field Goal Return.

There ya go. Although you don't see "Missed Field Goal Returns" very often, it is what it is. I'd say that would count as a special teams TD if they're counted differently from Defensive TDs, but as to whether return yards should be awarded I'm honestly not sure. Check the NFL's stats and see if Vasher was credited with them (assuming that by "return yards" you're talking KR/PR).

It is a Def TD for Chicago. Or more specifically, if you play with ST and D seperately, I would call it a ST Touchdown.

I don't know why this one flew under the radar, but it was also missed in another league of mine (not a Sportsline one). The site came back with a message on Tuesday that they had changed it, and made it a Def TD.

I think it was considered for just the TD, not yards.

;-D Exactly right.
Anyone in your league starting Chicago as their "D" that weekend should be credited.
