I did feel willson did a little extra when Bowman pushed him but he should have never pushed him in the first place. That one is on us(EDIT: Oops I was thinking of the special teams play on this one) . As for the flop at the end you're completely right. In real-time when it was happening I thought he got tripped up but after watching that 4 or 5 times again it's clear he went down purposely to get the call. He looked up at the ball and knew he had no chance. I can't fault them though. Smart play.Originally posted by Gene18:Fan since John Brodie & Gene Washington days.
This week is the first time I can remember seeing, what I believe to be, coached soccer style "flops".
3rd & 6 in the 2nd quarter the flop that got a call against Bowman worked.
Wilson's desperation throw at the end, Kearse looked to initiate contact with Whitner then fell to the ground without even trying to find the ball!!
That's why Wright was all alone to pick off the ball.
So Carroll is bringing in mug the WR until called tactic and the flop.
Sad day for ethics in sport, as if there ever was any.
