Okay, I think we've found the dumbest rule in football. Inside the two minute warning in either half, if the ball is fumbled, the only offensive player who can advance the fumbled ball is the player who fumbled it.

WHY? What in the world is the purpose of this rule? Why should the rule about advancing the ball change just because there's less than two minutes to go in the half?

I've been actively watching football for 28 years, and I don't recall many teams intentionally putting the ball on the ground as some desperate stratagem as time dwindled away. So what gives?
