(Yahoo)   Perhaps trash-talking and late-hitting the Ravens should go in the same category as taunting the dynamite monkey, as the Ravens run a fake field goal play for a touchdown despite leading 41-17 in the 3rd quarter   ( divider line

thisiszombocom: Hah four extra pOints. That'll learn you

Those four points could be all the difference in staying ahead of Alabama in the BCS rankings.

IAmRight: js34603: You can't run up the score in a professional football game. No need to defend your boys.

Realistically, yes, there is. No one cares if you run it up within the standard parameters of the game. But going out of your way to use a trick play in what would be a four possession game in the 4th quarter is a dick move.


The players on the FG team aren't professionals? They aren't paid to be prepared for fake FGs, which are, in fact, standard parameters of the game?

Yeah they are. That's why it's not running up the score. That implies your opponent is helpless to stop you because of some overwhelming advantage you have over them, like when Alabama drops 70 on whatever cupcakes they play that don't have Division 1 athletes (Kentucky, I think they're called).

It's the NFL...the Raiders are collecting checks too, and let's not pretend they were helpless. They just sort of gave up when they were out of reach of winning the game. If they don't like it they should go play intramurals. Brother.

Now, dick move? Maybe so, karma tends to be a biatch, and the Ravens will be on the wrong side of an asskicking like that eventually. Also questionable coaching because like I said, if someone gets hurt on that play Harbaugh looks like a jackass and maybe ruins the season to put up 50 points on a team that won't see 8 wins let alone the playoffs. But it isn't running up the score.

Kurmudgeon: Perhaps, but even a homer should know what comes around, goes around.

Missing from the article:

Asked if the Raiders seemed upset with his score that put the Ravens up by 31, Koch replied, "Oh, not that I know of. I was too busy doing high-fives and spiking the ball."
