I have a question about spiking...why isnt intentional grounding? ..the qb is between the tackles with no elligible receiver in a reasonable position.

and kneeling down..i think the NFL should ban, i believe all teams should run a legit play instead of running clock out.

one thing to remember is that a QB has to be under center to spike the ball.

if hes in the shotgun (or a holder 7 yards away from the center on a FG) and spikes it, it is called intentional grounding and that is a spot foul with a 10 second run off if its under 2 min.

some teams dont take knees. but espn likes to show a flash back to that one play where the guy fumbles and returned it for a TD to win the game... lol

I bet Jerome Bettis was hoping Pittsburgh had taken a knee at the end of their divisional playoff game last year. Heck, I bet Vanderjagt wish they had too. If they had, he wouldn't have looked like such a jack ***.

I think that was Herm Edwards that returns it for a TD

what is a "legit play" in your book? you're going to force a team to had the ball off or throw the ball? having the rules control the playbook is not good. a kneel is a real play; you snap the ball, you down the ball, you lose yards.
