    I don't blame him; he knew that even if someone from the sidelines jumped into the field of play to make the tackle, the refs wouldn't have flagged him.

    I seriously doubt Flacco would have done that.

    For a variety of reasons. It would have made a farce of the game. That's the big one.

    But the rule also says the refs could just award him a TD.

    Can you imagine one of these bozos jumping out of the sidelines to make a tackle, and refs award the Niners an automatic TD with no time left on the clock???? Holy *****... :D

    That's a different story. But the mere words coming out of Flacco's mouth.... Had Brady got caught suggesting something like that, everybody and their mother would jump with the cheating *****.

    There is actually an NFL rule that allows refs to give to give a team points if they feel a team would have scored but didn't because of some outside reason like getting tackled by a non-player.

    With the way that game was called, i have no doubt that ginn would have been flagged 15 yards for roughing the passer, had flacco attempted to tackle him on the punt return.

    Think he might have been joking a bit. But it would have been funny to watch.
    I actually wondered what the call would be if something like that happened.

    As true as this is, I still LOLed when I heard Flacco. Don't think it's a big deal.

    If Brady would have won the Super Bowl, the only ones complaining would have been the haters. Just like it is now for Flacco and the Ravens' hater.

    Speaking of words coming out of Flacco's mouth....any comments coming from the 'f' words coming out of his mouth at the end of the game. The network immediatly cut away but it was not a "I'm going to Disney World" moment.

    This actually happened in a college game in 1953. Alabama's Tommy Lewis ran off the bench and tackled Rice's Dick Maegle who had taken a pitch, broken free, and was on his way to a sure 95yd TD run.

    The refs invoked the "palpably unfair" rule and awarded the TD to Rice.

    Brady doesn't cheat, but always finds a way to win even after a loss. (hope this hasn't been posted yet)

    This is interesting and wondered about a player doing something like that. Glad they have a rule for it, otherwise that would be an epic loophole.

    on PFT on TV tonight Tom Curran asked that exact question: Imagine the uproar if Brady...Erik Kuselias made a wiseass comment to the effect "you have to reach the SB before you can..."

    Yeahh, there are so many more players that do a better job of reaching the Super Bowl than Brady.

    I know! I wanted Curran to reply in that vein and he didn't, I think because it was a quick-moving, timed segment. Curran is typically really glib with come-backs in those types of situations.
