i had the thought right when it happened that victor faked how bad he actually got lit up.
it was a clean hit. very clean hit. ed reed obviously meant nothing malicious by it, as shown after the play.
cruz seemed to be fine then went stiff afterwards. he went back into the game a play later.
is it far fetched to think that wide receiver coaches are telling their guys to act as if they got messed up a lot more than it seemed in order to draw a flag? i wouldn't blame them.
anyone else have a thought on this?
