That was a cheap shot and a huge missed call by the officials.

I know Tate was just doing his job, but you can't hit high like that in the NFL anymore.


How is that a high hit, he is hitting him right in the chest. if Sean Lee turned his head instead of staring at Wilson the whole time it would have been a textbook hit.

how was it pointless? what would the take be if say...idk..it actually worked? they werent prepared and the snap got botched, and boom the bucs recovered?

it was pointless because it doesnt work.

its just a stupid idea that if you dont dive bomb the offensive line's knees on a QB kneel, then that means you quit

Anythings possible...they tried to catch the giants sleepig. They didn't dive at knees or do anything illegal. What they did on that play could be done at any point during the game

It's on Sean Lee as well, but Tate led with his helmet and hit Lee under the chin.

The NFL will probably fine him for "using his helmet as a weapon" - there's no such thing as a legal, big hit in the NFL anymore.

They did dive head first into the O-lines knees. i didnt say it was against the rules. its just a scum play when the QB is kneeling.

just like it would be a scum play for the QB to fake kneel and then drop a bomb over the top to run up the score.

Just because the offense says "okay guys we won game oer" doesn't mean the defense has to agree. Is diving into knees illegal?

Actually the fake QB kneel-80 yard touchdown throw would be incredibly genius before halftime if you caught the DB's with their pants down.

there are certain unwritten rules that i dont think should be broken. baseball is big on this kind of stuff.

another example, on Ultimate Fighter, this one kid acted like he was going to touch gloves before the fight but he faked and went for a double takedown. He ended up winning the fight, but he looked like a dumbass in the process. there are just certain things you dont do. there are no rules against it, but you shouldn't do it.

But its a toally normal play. Its not a cheap shot. A fake spike going for a bomb is cheaper than what the bucs did.

For it being a "totally normal play" I don't think I've ever seen it before.
