No, I'm not. I know it's standard practice for offensive lineman to help their QB up, but I don't see helping an opponent up going on too much anywhere in the league and it's certainly not 'coached'. What if your opponent is running a two-minute drill? You gonna' stop and help 'em up so they can hurry back to the huddle?

Nah, it may happen now and again, but it's really not something you want your players focusing on. It just kinda' shows how far Tampa Bay's broken down as a team, IMO ... the players are going to totally disregard the coaches on all levels and their record reflects it, .

I see it all the time, all game long, especially with the Saints. O-line and D-line most frequently.

I can't believe some of you guys.

What's not to believe? You're not out there to make friends, Danno ... especially at that level. Of all the games I've watched thus far, I can't remember specifically which game, I've only saw a player help an opponent up once and I remember it because I thought it was unusual at the time. The only real times I've seen opposing players show each other love like that was during strike years where the Player's Association wanted to show some sort of solidarity.

Maybe it's just an "era" thing <shrug>, but I don't see it and I've never heard of it being part of a coaching strategy, .
