Default OMG Nedney just admited he faked it

Back in the playoffs in overtime against Tenn in 2003...

Joe Nedney just admitted he faked it.

He said something like "I'm sorry, if you touch me, I'm going to do whatever I have to do to help my team win. I'll fall."

That punk faked it. He fell well after he was hit.

Loser. I just never thought he would admit it.

Before I was upset with Washington for a bonehead play...but now I will direct it at Nedney...lol

I wish I had the clip. I don't remember it being as bad as I just saw it. lol



In the video you can see him watching himself miss THEN doing the flop.

Yeah but for him to admit it is mind blowing...lol

If it were me I would never admit it. I would be coy and say "I got hit and I fell" and smile. I wouldn't be caught saying "I'll do whatever I can do to help my team."

What if he has to go through Pitt one day. lol

It seems pretty common for kickers to flop. I dont' blame him so much as the officals who made the egregious call.

There is actually a rule in the books penalizing for flops. It's never enforced.

Would you ever admit it later if you did it in a postseason game? I wouldn't. It's like addmiting cheating or trying to abuse the rules.

I probably would but I'm a cheeky bastard when it comes to competition and wouldn't mind rubbing salt in my foe's wound.

Yep every time I hear/think/see him or to a lesser extent a Titans FG kicker.............a string of profanity goes off in my head for 1-2 minutes

Its part of the game today because the league is too afraid of contact....This rule should be changed...the kicker...is still a football player...Imagine how much more difficult it would have been for him to make that kick against us if he know he might have been hit and it not called a penalty.

I've seen college game where a player fakes it....gets help off the field after a punt...then 6 players later ran back out to punt...I can't blame them for taking advantage of a rule...it should be changed.
