My thoughts, as well.

I completely disagree. If it's legal, then it's just another strategy to employ in a game full of strategies. Bush league to me is what Tampa Bay was doing at the end of games during victory formations. JMO
The thing is that the opposing team can do it, too (Calvin Pace even wishes his own team would use this tactic).
I wish the Texans would pull this out sometimes. It's a good way to disrupt any rhythm that the defense might be finding, and winning the game is all that really matters at the end of the day. There are no asterisks besides wins and championships.
