Except it didn't count because of a holding call. Still an awesome play. And why does Joe Buck still have a job?

Yeah, what a great great idea ..... f-ing genius.

Too bad it was called back.

Maybe Buck saw the flag and knew it would be called back anyway so no need to get too excited?

It's amazing that Hester is so good at punt returns, that nobody saw Knox catch the ball.

Even the punter was fooled which is surprising since you would think he knew which direction he kicked the ball.

with as hard as it is for the punting team to turn and locate the ball, i wonder if we'll see more teams try this ... removing a blocker in favor of a decoy second returner.

I always wished Knox could play for Houston since he's a local boy.

Hahahahahaha!

The punter and the guy who committed the foul should both be fired from their respective teams, LOL.

This was a really fun play to watch, but I couldn't help thinking the whole time "why doesn't anyone on the kicking team know where the ball is going? Shouldn't the punter say something like 'hey guys, just a head's up for you, I'm gonna kick it left...you know, away from that guy who will score a TD.'"

On second thought, maybe that's why they ran away from the guy who scored a TD... :kitten:

I saw this live on TV .... and when the ball left the punters foot , I knew it was going to that side of the field ..... Hell of a sell job by the return team is all I have to say.
