    Tackling is a disease in the Crow family genes. His Cousin can't tackle (Eagles). His 2nd cousin (Wisconsin CB) can't tackle either.

    Not sure about his other distant family member who used to be with w. the Steelers. I bet he can't tackle either.

    Ah fellows, don't be too hard on him & Revis. They're just trying to save themselves for the post-season. :rolleyes:

    Tebow would have scored on the following play anyway. Really poor effort by Cro though.. exactly the kind of player I wouldn't want on my team.

    They both realized simultaneously, in that very instant, how they've been conned all along by Coach Wrecks and it was time to quit.

    +1 for recognizing that. The sports media has the people they like and the people they dislike. If you are liked then the scenario will most often be spun in a positive light. If you are disliked, a similar scenario will often be spun negatively. See Dungy vs BB 2007-2010 for further fun reading on the subject....

    On a different point regarding that play, where is the line between all out play and reckless, futile action? In my opinion TT was going to score....but Cromartie and/or Revis probably could have come up and made the final yard more difficult. However, TT had a full head of steam which may have meant Revis or Cromartie could have been on the wrong end of a major, punishing steamrolling. Consider this, the Patriot secondary has the same personnel they have now except with the addition of one hypothetical player who has talent on Revis' level. Would you want that player risking injury by taking a big time hit from a QB who is significantly bigger and stronger and running with a full head of steam?
