If a quarterback throws the football behind the line of scrimmage and the receiver does not catch it is it a fumble?

That depends on the angle the ball travelled. If the receiver is behind or exactly to the side of the quarterback and the ball travels at an angle parallel to or away from the line of scrimmage, the throw is considered a lateral and would be a fumble if the receiver did not catch it. If the receiver is in front of the quarterback and the ball travels at an angle towards the line of scrimmage, the throw is considered a forward pass and would be an incomplete pass.


Are yards after catch considered rushing yards?

No. After making a reception of a forward pass all yards, gained or lost, after the catch are considered receiving yards to the receiver and passing yards to the quarterback. EXAMPLE: The line of scrimmage is the offense's 10 yard line. The quarterback throws a forward pass that is completed at the offense's 15 yard line and the receiver runs to the offense's 30 yard line before being tackled. The receiver is credited with 20 receiving yards and the quarterback is credited with 20 passing yards. EXAMPLE 2: The line of scrimmage is the offense's 10 yard line. The quarterback throws a forward pass that is completed at the offense's 12 yard line and the receiver runs laterally/backwards to the offense's 8 yard line before being tackled. The receiver is credited with -2 receiving yards and the quarterback is credited with -2 passing yards.

no it would be an legal forward pass ANSWER: It would be an iilegal forward pass, but the non-offending team would get the option of taking either the penalty or the result of the play. The defense would decline the penalty and accept the result of the play -- a turnover.

In football can a receiver pass the ball after catching it?

no the receiver can not pass the ball after catching it. hence the name "receiver" he only receives passes and does not throw them Actually the answer above is wrong, if say the quarterback throws the ball backwards or laterally then the receiver can then throw the ball. There is no rule on WHO throws the ball, only that there is one forward pass per play and it must come from behind the line of scrimmage.
