    I was on the edge of my seat, just waiting for them to do something. I knew there was a growing frustration in Rodgers and some of the other guys that would not be kept silent, and it shouldn't. They played poorly. They better not do that against the Vikings. Not to say it will be a close game, I just want to destroy them. Always.

    Only me huh?

    Have I complained about the scoring in the second half of that game? If so, throw it up, prove it, cause I have not complained one bit.

    The main rule that everyone should remember is that forward momentum while or after catching the ball and then running into the end zone is not a safety. So even if Shields was on the 7 yard line and fell into the end zone because of the momentum, it would not be a safety.

    I disagree, if you and I are talking about same thing...If he intercepts in endzone, runs to the 7, then falls back into endzone I believe it is a safety...He established being a ball carrier in the field of play...Then goes back to endzone

    Digest of Rules Main
    Safety

    The important factor in a safety is impetus. Two points are scored for the opposing team when the ball is dead on or behind a team’s own goal line if the impetus came from a player on that team.

    Examples of Safety:

    (b) Ball carrier retreats from field of play into his own end zone and is downed. Ball carrier provides impetus.

    I agree. I think we are talking about 2 different things. I'm not talking about running out of the end zone and then back in. Just when a guy picks the ball and falls into the end zone while catching it.

    Anyways, just looking at the play, he is never even close to the goal line.
