Do you only throw a flag if the ball isn't caught?


The flag could still be thrown. However, if it is a pick, there's no good reason for there to be no interception.

Except that the penalty negates the play.


Why should it? Ingram's action did not cause Brees to throw a pick and Ingram's action did not change the fact that it was a pick.

How would you do the yardage? I can't think of any way of doing it that follows any precedent set by other penalties.


Penalty from spot of pick perhaps. That's the trickiest part, because you couldn't do from where the QB was hit.

Yeah, that's the one that makes the least amount of not-sense, but it still goes completely against the precedent set by roughing the kicker on a punt.

BUT IT DOESN'T. They tack the roughing the passer yards onto a completed pass, so you're argument is wrong....

Now what if Brees was hit during his throw. Now it's up to the ref to decide if its SD ball or New Orleans ball? No. The rules fine the way it is.

Then that isn't roughing the passer, thats just a personal foul for helmet to helmet contact...

So they should award the defense despite the illegal play?

The illegal play happened after the throw happened. Ingram did not hit him before the ball was released.

yes let the pick stand...and if there is a holding on the offense but that guy wouldnt get the tackle take it back. or take out roughing the kicker because it doesnt effect the kick.

I think you're missing the issue here. If the ball is already out, the hit doesn't affect the play anymore, why make it? I have no sympathy for players that are needlessly violent, and they deserve to have that play negated. If you don't like it, don't make that hit.

He wasn't needlessly being violent, I don't even think he actually hit Brees. He was charging full speed regardless. It was like Brees threw it and Ingram came charging in 4 seconds later, it was Brees throws and a second later, Ingram hits him.

Effect on the play has absolutely nothing to do with how penalties are called or rules. A hold on the opposite side of the field of a 95 yard run is no different to the refs than what that occurs right in front of the RB. On DPI, they don't stop and think, well, that was a 4th string WR, so he probably wouldn't have caught in anyway.

Plus, it's a personal foul. Basically no personal fouls effect the actual play. That doesn't mean you should make it easier on the team committing it. They screwed up, they should have to deal with that fact.

Why does the ball getting thrown matter? If you stop the play right at the penalty, who had legal possession of the ball? It wasn't San Diego.

And it wasn't New Orleans. Once the ball is out of someone's hand, its nobody's ball, so if a foul happens during a fumble, should the ball just go back to the offense?

The play itself is irrelevant to the question, I'm not arguing about that. You said yourself you don't consider it a penalty. I'm just saying that a rule that, when broken, provides no tactical advantage and is only there for player safety can and should penalize the team harshly.
