You can check their web site for this, but the way they have scored this play in the past is that the receiver who caught the ball gets receiving yards up to the point of the lateral, then the receiver who caught the lateral, Wayne in this case, gets receiving yards from the spot of the lateral to the goal line (or spot where he was tackled)

There are no rushing yards on the play.


I think that sounds right (I edited out the TD part since he didn't score).

Can you even have a rushing attempt and a passing attempt on the same play? I think that would create a problem.


No, you can't have a rushing attempt and a receiving completion on the same play.

Why is everyone saying Wayne was credited with a TD? They called him down at the 1 and Addai "scored" at that point(and I use that term loosely because it surely didn't look like it).

Nobody has said this...why do people keep saying things like "he didn't score" and "why are we talking about a TD"? Their anecdotes happen to include times that their player scored, but the yardage on those plays should be calculated in the same way...which makes sense to me.

The only references to a TD by Wayne in this thread are "would of's" and "if's"...neither of which implies he got a TD, but were said to indicate whether it would be scored as a rush or pass.
