If a punt is blocked, can the punter fall on the ball and get a fresh set of downs? I know if the returner muffs the kick the other team can recover and keep the ball. Would it be classified as a fumble? I see so many punter kick the ball out the endzone resulting in a safety. What sa ye huddle?

If the ball does not change possession by being picked up by a defensive player and then refumbled, then the offense cannot advance the ball on a punt.

I believe it them just become a turnover on downs.

Why does it matter? Our Coordinator probably tells Brad to ran away. Horrible ass blocking schemes he comes up with.

Depending when you choose to punt I think.

Saying if you punt on 1st down, fumbled and you recovers it, it should be 2nd down.

But when you punt on 4th, unless you recover the ball at a first down, it's turnover to the other team.

First of all, this thread isn't about our st's in general. I was just curious in case the situation took place. Imho its a legit question and all the douches who didn't understand what I was getting at can go fug yourselves. At least we still have some resonable posters on this forum. I'll just stick to lurking, because the intellect on this board has hit n all time low.

Yes it can, actually. As long as it's behind the line of scrimmage, a blocked punt can be recovered and advanced by either team. If it goes beyond the line of scrimmage, the kicking team can recover a loose ball that has been touched by the receiving team, but they can't advance it.

To answer a question in the OP, if the punter just falls on it, you don't get a fresh set of downs. It has to be recovered and advanced beyond the 1st down marker.

A special teams question/request.

Would like to see especially after an Adams fumble on the next punt return, put edwards back there. Let Edwards catch it. Then toss across field to Adams who runs in for easy score.

TN did it today against the Danny Crossman led Detroit ST's, then had a kick return for a TD.

People don't want you to have a different opinion around here. As soon as you do they make snarky personal attacks without offering solutions. It's a big poo show.
