Put TLL on the ground again and somebody will notice and then they'll swarm him hopefully leaving somebody else open.
Yeah! We'll pull it against whoever McMahon's coaching ST for now!

Re: The "fake" Kick Return

No issue with it myself.
Nobody in their right mind would have gone for the onside kick in the superbowl either. If you play with fire you'll occasionally get burnt.

It'll keep teams guessing the odd nutball play

Not if this is as good as we can do in executing it. We should just stick to the non fake touchback, start with decent field position and play to our strengths.

I believe it was called back because they agreed it was a forward pass.

Often these plays they are looking for something that improves the chances as we all know. If it appears to be there why not.

If you watched the replay, TLL had one guy to beat, but he slipped and fell. It had a chance, just poor execution. Almoat the entire coverage unit ran at Ginn

its all part of the play. Many teams have done it. You hide and become camoflouged. out of site out of mind until you pop up out of no wheres to catch the ball and run up the other sidelines. Obviously it didn't work out so well.

It's what happens when Coach shoves too may sticks of Juicy Fruit in his mouth.

Throw that play away ... forever.

No need to get cute on special teams and/or kickoffs. We can barely handle punts (led to the Bucs points) as it is.
