Default Flopping in the NFL? its more likely than you think

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRSQe...layer_embedded

i saw this on MNF and gruden right away made a comment about it. LOVE how gruden is on MNF by the way.

and now the NFL has sent memos to all team about faking injuries to stop offenses like the no huddle kind. i'd like to see someone pull this crap on brady's no huddle offense. might be worth the fine if you can disrupt Brady's offense which appears to be unstoppable at this point. but yes the NFL has finally been hit with flopping.

I cant point to an instance where I saw players flopping or a big deal was made out of it. This was just blatant. But I'd like to see videos of other flopping. Chances are it'll be tough to find. Better yet I'd like fans to recall instances where they saw a player flop. Chances are that'll be tough to find too.

Watched the Chargers/Pats. Not a fan of either, just thought it might be the best game in that time slot. Not even any ff players for me there.

That San Diego was faking injury was painfully obvious. On one occassion, Brady even went over and leaned over the guy while he was talking to the trainer. Had kind of a "c'mon, really?" look on his face.

Defenses are going to be forced to find more every down players, not focusing on the situational mentality of recent years.

It's been going on...forever. People did it often to the Colts during Peyton's prime. The Giants are just morons and made it blatant.

Unfortunately, this isn't the fist time this has happened in football before Certain teams do this when their defenses get tired and have to revert to faking injuries to get rest. It's f***ing pathetic.
