    Why did they go for a drop kick instead of a regular kick? Flutie could have missed it and NE might not have had a chance to tie at the end of the game. It is a nice visual but there is a reason nobody has done it since 1941!

    Flutie ceases to amaze me. First the two foul balls caught in consecutive Red Sox games he went to, and now the drop kick.

    Drop kicks are used in every rugby game. They're easy to do with a football if you know how to do it.

    THat was awesome. When I first saw the highlight reel I thought my eyes were seeing wrong. Then they started commenting on it. Way cool.

    Never knew what it was until Sunday. When I was listening on the radio, they were talking about Flutie doing a drop kick, I was thinking to myself, who the hell did he drop kick and why? :brickwall

    We used to do dropkicks in Jr. High and High School....back in the day. I thought everyone knew what dropkicks were.
