    Packer Player Moves the Ball

    Am I the only one who saw a Packer defensive player move the ball back a foot or so while the vikes were heading to the huddle? The ref then reset the ball again further back. I have never seen this in a game. What are the rules on this.

    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    I didn't see it, but if a defender moves the ball before the snap I think it's technically delay of game on the defense, 5 yards.

    Hmm, I'll have to look for that when I see the game!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    Yes this is quite legal and happens all the time. The cameras just dont usually look at it. If the defense breaks huddle before the offense, they can move the ball up half a yard back. If the offense continues to huddle they can pay the ref $5 to move the ball up to another foot back.
