  • Financial Impact
    ~$16,000.
    Losing that playoff game probably cost a looooooot more than $16,000.
  • Detractor's Biggest Criticism
    F****** Brees!
    F****** Brady!
  • Still A Threat Today?
    The call happened a few days ago, so, yeah.
    Nope! It was so unpopular that it was abolished in 2013.
  • Thinking rationally, Does It Sorta Make Sense?
    Maybe, possibly, from a certain angle…kinda.
    Based on how the rule is written…a little.
  • Unlikely Role Player In This Whole Fiasco?
    Ray Lewis. He offered to pay half.
    The Steelers. When the Tuck Rule was abolished, it was voted down 29-1. The Pats and Redskins abstained. The Steelers were the only team to vote in favor of it.
  • Legacy?
    Hard to say, but probably nothing. This is a quarterback’s league, after all.
    People will literally never stop talking about it.
RESULTS
With a score of 5-3, the Tuck Rule takes it. And now that it’s been voted down, let’s never, ever speak of it again. -Brian Cullen, CBS Local Sports contributor
