It's smart football until the rules are changed. And while you say it takes no skill, try holding up a ball carrier that wants to go down or wants to gain an extra yard.
It's almost accidental when the defender manages to hold up the ball carrier and allow time to strip it, because when 250lbs wants to go to the ground, it usually can.

The first mistake was on the Bills coaching staff to not consider that the Patriots might kick it away rather than go for an onside kick. The second mistake was that the return man decided to run the ball out. Third mistake was not simply going down as soon as contact was about to be made. Fourth mistake was on the other Bills that were in the area: they're all busy jumping up and down pointing their arms in the "we got the ball" formation, rather than trying to recover the ball; that allowed the Patriots kicker - their kicker! - to recover the fumble.

Better situational awareness, better coaching, game over.
That basically sums it up.

I don't know what Steelers team you've been watching. I've been watching for 40 years and don't recall them doing this much at all. Steelers football my ass! We play tough blue collar football but we're not dirty.

I ahte the cheats almost more than the rats. Like Fansince76 said that game should have been over peroid! I would have liked to hear the media and so called experts if the cheats had lost that game. I'm sure they would have made every excuse in the books to defend those cheats. I'm shocked that Goodell has not fined the bills for playing a pretty good game against the cheats.

ravnet,

The ravens aren't jealous of the Steelers though. No not at all. They're also afraid to play them here on Monday night. They had to cry to the commish ( who by the way is rumored to be employed part time by BOB KRAFT!) I say part time because they only need him to make things go away. This is not about jealousy. IT'S ABOUT CHEATING AND GETTING AWAY WITH IT!!!! We're not jealous. Jealous of what.That we can't have a copy of everyone's play book? You 2 (ravnet and the cheatriot) are pathetic.

Here's one for you.

A second grade school teacher in Baltimore told all the ravens fans to raise their hands.
All but one did. She asked this young boy if he was not a football fan. He replied that he was but he was a Steeler fan. She asked him why on earth he would not support the ravens? He said both of his parents were Steeler fans.

Then she asked him: If both of your parents were Morons what would you be?

He said a ravens fan.( or a cheatriots fan)
