"Part of the section describing when a player is down:

when a runner declares himself down by:
falling to the ground, or kneeling, and clearly making no immediate effort to advance.

I think that's clear. The Saints receiver was down falling down and not advancing."

So, a player can be declared down by going to the ground, doesn't have to be a kneel or slide, without being touched by a defender. Would the ref had blown the whistle in time? I don't know, but if I had to guess, I'd say probably. All the Saints receivers were in that 10 yard area and 5 of the 6 Texan defenders were there too. Brees threw to the one guy whose defender was about 7 yards more downfield, so it was an easy completion.

Rock posted this-

The rule is that the player with the ball must slide FEET FIRST. This is a declaration of "giving himself up".
Ginn did NOT legally give himself up. He did not slide feet first. He just caught the ball and sat down. If the other player had not touched him, the clock would have kept running.



If that is the rule, the play never would have been blown dead as the receiver went to the ground to make the catch.... in real time I don't think the refs would have blown the whistle in time.

  Yes: it is similar to the QB slide rule

  Good point though offensive player can take a knee as well.
