    With 1.3 seconds left on the clock, and Otter Valley holding a 16-14 lead, Mt. Mansfield could only try a desperation 46-yard field goal for the win.

    That kid is going to replay that in his head for the rest of his life. :)

    Ahaha - Guy was "doing his best Tom Brady impression" - I disagree. He kept making completions, so... ;)

    More stupid than Eric Mangini opting NOT to go for the TD - preferring a 3 point field goal down 27-0 with 10 minutes left?

    You have to wonder what the hell the coach was thinking when he put those kids back there to return the kick. That's just asking for a fumble. Incredibly stupid on his part.

    Did anyone notice the Ref signaling incomplete pass at the end of a running play?

    I remember something like that almost happened at the end of the Super Bowl game where the Pats beat the Eagles. Rodney Harrison intercepted the ball to apparently end the game, then he either put the ball on the ground or held it up high where an Eagle could have just grabbed it and run for a td. As I watched the game in live time I wasn't sure if the play had actually ended or not, but upon further review it looked like his knee did touch down which I guess ended the play. That would have been more of a dagger in the heart than the OTHER SB if the Eagles had won that game like that. You can see how that would happen, the player is so excited that they forget to actually finish off the play, resulting in a heartbreaking loss. In the case of the Eagles, I was surprised a player didn't try to grab the ball and run it in anyway, like that guy did in the video. I guess it works both ways, the Eagle players were assuming the game was over also.

    He was doing his impression of Junior Seau in the 2007 Cleveland game. ;)

    Can someone explain what happened? I can't see the video at work, and am very curious! Thanks in advance.

    Opposing team fields a short field goal attempt in the end zone, runs it out, spikes it. The kicking team picks up the live ball and runs it in for a game-winning TD.

    Not to nitpick, but the play was 2 point conversion attempt, so when the runner got tackled the ref was correctly signaling a "failed" attempt. :p

    I'm sure the kids were back there more for a field fake situation. He probably didn't coach them on just letting the ball fall, so there's blame there, but I doubt he put them back there telling them to catch it if it was short. They were there to prevent a deep fake FG pass attempt.
