    This is classless. Video clearly shows Deon Grant getting a signal to take a spill to stop the offense. The NFL had to do something about that BS.

    I say take them out the rest of the drive. Too hurt to get off the field? Too hurt to play the possession.

    ^^^^This.

    It was ridiculous. Looks like the League thought so also.

    I don't think it was just aimed at Grant. The other guy going down and hopping right back up is what really blew it up. Yeah, it sucks, but I'm still laughing my azz off at both of them taking a dive.
    As my old Pappy always said (in his finest Foghorn Leghorn voice), "Bowahh, I say bowahh, if ya ain'ta cheatin', you just ain'ta tryin', bowahh".

    Standing around the line of scrimmage waiting for the other team to line up and THEN fainting (or whatever they called it) is kinda a dead giveaway.

    At least act like you're trying to limp off the field and you can't quite get to the sideline.

    The owners have only themselves to blame. This is obviously a direct result of no OTAs because I'm absolutely sure that this sort of "method acting" would have been covered in one of the defensive sessions
    :D

    Doesn't really deter teams from doing it if they can throw a scrub player out there to take the fall.

    Eventually it will. Just like calling a timeout as the ball is snapped on a FG and the K misses it. Win some, lose some.

    That's just it...

    The D can't substitute when the offense is going no huddle...how would you get the scrub in the game?

    I've been wanting the Texans to do some of this (no huddle offense not flopping). Use James Casey out wide to get a D to go nickle or dime and then bring him back to FB and pound the ball from the no huddle against the favorable matchups.

    What about when the offense fakes an injury to buy an extra timeout.

    All teams used to do this back in the day, then they added those rules of automatically running down the clock. No one does it anymore.

    Agreed, they cant sub in a 4th string guy, but they do designate the worst, or most expendable player.

    What about it? I assume if the NFL caught the offense flopping the same penalty would be applied.

    The NYG training staff has freed up money to hire it's newest consultant, Benny hinn. I've seen better acting on melrose place.
