Q: Originally posted by Tigroklaws
I've had many INT's over the past couple seasons with my players but only recall 1 or 2 that ever had any kind of return. I understand there to be a "catch roll" you must pass in order to return immediately, as opposed to falling down if failed. From other recalled applications, Catch chance % is not really helpful for a DB however, would catch chance % AEQ, help in this roll; allowing for an immediate return attempt and a pick 6?
A: No, it's just a straight up catching skill roll.

I seem to remember one of the much early Q&As, Bort saying the only time catch % would be of use to a defender is on a ball deflected by someone else, trying to catch the bounce. But couldn't find the link on that one, but still I'd never put catch % on a DB, stacking a second Int % or better yet, more catching and not being a pure liability tackling would be my preference, YMMV.
