that was the coolest thing i've seen in professional sports in a long, long time. Why? Hey Lung, maybe u need a brain or r u 10 yrs old? It hasn't been done since 1941!!! thats WHY! Obviously Flutie has a lot of time on his hands at practice and came up with the idea. Belechek went along with it and let him do it in a meaningless game. my father taught me how to drop kick the ball when i was 10,,in 1960. even then it was a memory. that was how teams kicked the extra point before the modern era kicker.
I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest i just squandered.

Flutie learned that play YEARS ago in the hopes of someday using it in a real game situation to surprise the opposition. My guess is since he's probably retiring this year he bugged Belichick into letting him try one today so he could say he had done it....

I also predict that Dr Z will do a write-up on it because it is one of his favorite trick-play topics and he has always wanted to see Flutie pull one off...

Wait, what happened? It looks like he made a PAT. Wha? The only time I could imagine that being useful would be if you wanted to catch the other team off guard and take the one point when you look like you're going for two. But why not just kick the PAT?

Well, the original idea was to use it as a FG not a PAT - but I think they changed the rules a few years back to take that out... Now it's pretty much just a gimmick that Flutie had mastered and like I said he probably lobbied to get it in before he retires just to be able to say he did it...

While doing a drop kick, you bounce the ball of the ground, and then kick it.
