It cracks me up that people think a shotgun snap would end the discussion. Bad snaps happen all the time. Plus the reason they don't call a run play in victory situations is to prevent a fumble.
Does anyone here feel comfortable with any of our RB's carrying the ball while a D is desperate and holding them up to go for the strip?
Best play is to be ready for it and for the coaches to complain to the league office afterward. I thought it was dirty that TB was jumping the pile well after the whistle blew.
