Spencer got full credit for the sack per the ESPN box score. Is it because he forced the fumble?
I asked this question in the 2nd half game thread and got no answer. He was the first one on that sack. I don't get it at all.
Yeah, he definitely got that sack, not sure why it didn't count.
i dont think they show half sacks on there, no worries!
NFL didn't either.
Just seen that! hmmm im sure Ware will be making some calls lol
If I recall correctly, Spencer had already knocked out the ball of Foles hand before Ware tackled him.
Yeah. Once the ball is knocked out, full sack goes to Spencer. Ware hit him a millisecond later.
To me (only watching when it happened and the replays shown on TV, not actually frame by framing the play.) it looked like Spencer had knocked the ball out a split second before Ware actually hit him.
Man nobody wants Spencer to get any credit.
I thought Ware got there first but could be wrong. I imagine though that the stats will be updated Tuesday to show a half sack for both on the play.
NFL reviews sacks, Ware will probably get credit before all is said and done.
Ware was there first he hit around the waist and then Spencer hit him.
I know right? I haven't been his biggest fan, but this year he is BALLIN! Still wouldn't resign him though.
I may be wrong, but I think that if a player forces a fumble on the QB as he is being sacked, full credit goes to him, regardless of how many players were in on the sack.
No, he wasn't. Spencer knocked teh ball out before Ware hit him. Full credit SHOULD go to Spencer for that sack.
So what do they do when it's not clear who forced it?
In this situation clearly Spencer forced it but there have to be times when it's unclear.
As for this situation they both hit him at pretty much the same time. I'm betting it will be split.
Wrong. Neither one of them got there first. It was a simulataneous sack, Ware hit Foles in the legs and then Spencer can after that. Look at the replay. I don't know what the rules are but Spencer didn't get there before Ware. I don't know how Spencer gets full credit for that but I guess it's in the rules.
Yep, can't share on a FF, I think.
who cares? lol
we got the W and that was a great play by both our OLBs.
Spencer has developed a knack for game clinching sack/fumbles.
