Flag Football

A version of American football where instead of tackling players to the ground, the defensive team must remove a flag or flag belt from the ball carrier "deflagging" to end a down.

What two directions can a lateral pass be thrown in football?

User Avatar
When the passer is behind the original line of scrimmage (LOS), to be considered a lateral and not a forward pass, the ball cannot move toward the LOS. If the ball hits the ground or is caught at a position on the field that is further up field than the passer's position at the time he threw the ball, it's a legal forward pass if the passer is behind the LOS and an illegal forward pass if he's beyond the original LOS. For ball carriers behind the LOS, laterals must be parallel to the LOS or travel away from it. Confusion and bad calls frequently occur whenever a player advancing the ball makes an apparent lateral to another player running even with or slightly behind the ball carrier. What appears to be a legal, backward lateral to an even or trailing player may, in fact, be an illegal forward lateral, because the ball may have traveled forward depending upon the passer's speed and forward direction of travel. The position of the ball when it's caught relative to its position when it was thrown is paramount.

Which players are eligible to receive passes?

User Avatar
There are 11 players on offense, generally arranged something like this: WR1 X X X X X TE SR QB WR2 RB On the front line, there are five down linemen (marked with "X"), and two other players. In my example the extra two are one wide receiver and one tight end. The players on the end of the line are eligible to receive passes. Any player coming out of the backfield is eligible to receive a pass (SR, WR2, RB) On certain trick plays, the QB can hand off the ball and then subsequently receive a pass, so the QB is also an eligible receiver. NOTE: QB = Quarterback RB = Running Back WR1, WR2 = Wide Receiver 1 and Wide Receiver 2 SR = Slot Receiver

What happens when the football hits the helmet of the receiving team?

User Avatar
a fumble that cannot be advanced by the kicking team Under current NFL rules, whether the ball hits a receiver in the helmet or not, is a non-factor. You can catch the ball off of your head, someone else's head, etc. So long as the ball never touches the ground. That said, it's illegal for a pass to hit an ineligible receiver first (an offensive lineman for example) in any way.

Can you run a center sneak in flag football?

User Avatar
USFFA Rules do not allow it in the true sense of a sneak where the center touches the ball to the hands of the QB, retains it and runs with it. A player who is behind the scrimmage line may hand the ball forward to a backfield teammate who is also behind that lihe; or to a teamrnate who is also on the scrimmage line when theball was snapped, provided that teammate left the line position, faced his own end line and was at least one yarb behind the scrimmage line when player received the ball... Pe"a/ty; .5 yatds from spot of foul;also, loss of down if by TeamA before team possession changes during a scrimmage down.

Which patriot running back injured his knee before playing in the pro bowl?

User Avatar
What could have been... That was rookie running back Robert Edwards, who was drafted with the 18th pick of the first round of the 1998 draft by the Patriots to replace the departed Curtis Martin. Edwards ran for 1,115 yards in his rookie season, showing he was a capable replacement for Martin. Edwards "blew out his knee" during a flag football game while attending the pro bowl. The injury was so severe, the doctors thought they might have to amputate the lower half of the leg. However, the surgery to repair his knee and Edwards embarked on a lengthy 2 year rehab stint. He was release by the Patriots prior to the 2002 season, when he was picked up by the Miami Dolphins. At the end of the season, Robert received the Halas Award, annually given out by the Pro Football Writers Association for his comeback.
