Scott,

Can you ask Ed about the mechanics involving 5 will get you 1 (a first down) in the Bears Game on Sunday. I was in the stands and the Titans were offside on a scrimmage kick.

I've been a high school linesman/referee for 20 years, and my Referee and I always communicate when it is close to 5 to go whether a 5 yd penalty by the D will result in a first down. They had to march it off and then measure to determine if Jeff Fisher wanted to accept the penalty or not. I would have thought that the linesman would have known exactly how far short they were going to be before the play started?

Thanks,

Chewy 6294 Chicago
