    Why does the Tuck Rule still exist?

    Everyone knows its a bogus rule... Its like a built-in lucky break for a QB..

    Why hasnt the NFL changed the rule since the controversy?

    From what I understand, all the "Tuck Rule" does is clarify when a quarterback's throwing motion is over.

    Going back to the infamous Brady/Woodson incident in the "Snow Bowl", the referees were correct in ruling the play an incomplete forward pass not so much because Brady's arm was still moving forward (...it wasn't), but rather because Brady had yet to begin moving the ball back towards his body or "tucking" it.

    there are worse rules than this one, especially since it's soooo rare. if not for that one play it would never be talked about. frankly i don't know why two feet have to be inbounds for a catch...doesn't make sense to me
