Scoring Dispute (Saints Lateral)

Postby BrutallyHuge » Mon Dec 22, 2003 2:01 pm

I have a scoring question about this play. My league has Brooks' stat line as:

2 PaTD (2,21), 296 PaYd, 6 RuYd

We have a scoring anomaly in our league. We get bonuses for passing TDs up to 49 yards (1pt bonus for 10-19yd, 2pt for 20-29, but no bonuses for 50+ yards). It's messed up, but we can't change the rules now. So a 21yd TD is worth 2 points more than a 50+ yard TD.

Does the 296 passing yards include the 75 yard pass play? I think it does. Should Brooks get credit for a 75 yard TD or 21 yard TD?

He should get credit for a 75 yard TD.

Since the only forward pass thrown on that play was by Brooks, and they play went for a 75 yard score, it is a 75 yard passing TD.

Sportsline:
Aaron Brooks gets 75 passing yards, however, the length of the passing TD is 21 yards. Jerome Pathon is credited with a 21 yard receiving TD, but does not get a reception on the play due to the lateral. Donte Stallworth is credited with a 42 yard reception. Michael Lewis is credited with 7 receiving yards, no reception. Deuce McAllister is credited with 5 receiving yards, no reception.

I believe this is how it was officially ruled.

NFL.COM says 75 yard pass play from Brooks to Pathon. ESPN says 75 yard TD pass from Brooks as well. Why does CBS have to differ? (FYI, my league is a CBS Sportsline league)

Saying "the length of the passing TD is 21 yards" seems erroneous to me considering the pass from Brooks' arm did not go 21 yards.

I think Pathon gets a 21 yard receiving TD, the other dudes get their respective yards, but Brooks gets a 75 yard pass TD. How else could the ball go 75 yards? A lateral is not a real statistic. You never see "McAllister had 3 laterals on the day." Instead, he can only get rushing or receiving yards.

On another note, on Randy Moss' over-the-head lateral to Moe Williams, CBS gave Daunte credit for a 15 yard TD pass, instead of the 59 yard TD he should've received.

I'm reading a fantasy site right now and it says:

"Ruling: Daunte Culpepper gets credit for a 59-yard TD pass. Randy Moss gets credit for 1 reception and 44 receiving yards. Moe Williams gets credit for 0 receptions, 15 receiving yards, and a receiving TD."

Is CBS wrong on both accounts? It looks like it to me.
