that said Eli was interviewed and said that it is a known thing, it's something QB's and defenses do, the QB will walk up to the line and tell them that they are kneeling.
what Tampa Bay should have done was told them that they aren't backing down or something...I mean Eli is going out of his way to inform them that they aren't running a play (as all QB's do) the least Tampa bay could have done was respond letting Eli know that they are so they can be ready for it, just for safeties sake.
"we've decided that you lost so don't do anything to try to make a play" And then somehow its your view that the defense is somehow obligated to explain to the offense what their intent is.
I say thats nuts! The defense made it absolutely clear what their intentions were when they lined up. Eli didn't notice and "assumed" they were quitting on the game. Thats completely on him. They made it clear they were coming and Eli didn't see what we all saw as they were lining up.
Now who's to blame for that?
And then for TC and Eli to whine about the fact that the Bucs didn't quit when "they" instructed them to is also rediculous.
(and it's ridiculous not rediculous)
TC and Eli got caught with their pants down and their false outrage is just an attempt to cover that up. This whining about other teams not quitting when they are supposed to is embarrassing.
And its.......B L O W M E. (I think that's the correct spelling)
he didn't say it in a whining fashion he just said it matter of factly...said that he told them it was a kneel....he didn't outright say they did a bad thing but you could tell he thought they did.
and I agree with him.
