Wasn't that the real reason they sat Ramsey in Washington, tipping off the snap? It seems he was saying Lord help me and wetting himself.

Sounds like Rucker just made himself a candidate for a coaching spot after he retires... ;-)

There aren't too many underpaid athletes around, but those two couldn't be getting enough for the years of mobility they no longer have. Marino used to buy his O-line gifts after the season, you'd think their O-line should at least pay for their future convalescent homes.

If I were an olineman, I'd want more than Isotoner gloves. ;)

I didnt watch this game, but I caught highlights and have read about it. It seems that this game was pretty much won by the CAR D. They pressured Quincy relentlessly and never allowed DAL to get into an offensive groove. Does that pretty much sum up the game for those of you who watched it?

I guess what Im getting at is - would it be too far of a stretch to say that CAR used this snap-count jump so effectively that it overruled the normal elements of a game plan?
What kind of impact did Rucker's observation have in winning this game? 25%? 75%?

Point well taken, times were a little different. That said, I would have rather have had LT(Lawrence Taylor) buying me the gloves and a couple of Hos to help me put them on!

Yeah, like I said earlier it was unbelievable. So many times the defense got off the snap so quick I thought it HAD to be offsides. It literally was like they were in the huddle and knew the snap count.
