Working the clock in your favor by taking a knee is just as much a part of the game as working the clock in other ways. Even though I donít like to see a team take a knee, its no different than spiking the ball to stop the clock. To do away with one you would have to do away with the other. But there is logical reason for taking a knee in the NFL. If the team didnít take a knee and scored, some would say they were showboating and/or trying to run up the score. A more logical reason is why take the chance of letting a player get hurt in the last minute of the game when you have it won, use the clock.

Ya, good point Scott. You're absolutely correct. I'm still REALLY happy they won though.

Bah, I gotta buy the first round now, when my friend from Boston comes to town next week. :)

Gawd that was a game for the ages. The mark of a real champion-caliber team is that they find a way to win when they don't have their best game. I mean, 150+ yards of penalties, including two MAJOR questionable interference calls, would rip the guts out of most teams...

GO PATS!
