    Silly goose.

    You know Einstein thought up crazy, never would happen, and impossible scenarios like this (although with physics and not football...), called them "thought experiments", although they are impractical to try out in real life, it allows our minds to imagine how things would play out. (One of his earliest was Imagining how light would look as he was chasing it and traveling the same speed, although impossible, this experiment lead to him developing special relativity)

    Not saying I am anywhere near Einstein, but not exploring something because it is deemed impossible or will never happen is a crappy way to go about things

    I think they would spot the ball on the 1 inch line, on the field of play.

    Not that Madden is real life, but I tried it and it resulted in a Safety. Though I tried it on 1st down, on 4th down it very well might be a TD.

    EDIT: Tried it on 4th down, same thing, safety.

    Treat it as a turnover at the spot of the ball. Turnover in the endzone = touchdown.


    At least thats what I would rule it.
    That's really interesting, I hadn't thought of that. Does anyone remember a scenario where someone got sacked/tackled in their own endzone on 4th down? That's bound to have happened at some point in the past, right?

    I have seen punters step out of the back of the end zone on purpose resulting in a safety.
