What you suggest is a very risky option.
His only option is to run outside the tackle box so he can toss it away without penalty.
Unfortunately, he didn't make it.
absolutely. it would have been intentional grounding. Keenum took the sack like a real man unlike schaub who would have been so scared to be sacked that he would have thrown it away to get intercepted for a pick six.
