      Expected that Colts play where the punter and long snapper line up alone and immediately get demolished by 7 opponents

        i too initially thought of that weird colts formation, but after hearing more and more about this one it's definitely deserving.

          We Redskins fans don't talk about the infamous Jim Zorn era. That was our mid-2000's bald headed Brittany Spears moment.

            Both plays are horrifically similar, but the fact that the Giants called a time out and the Redskins went back to it (after the element of surprise was gone) does tip it in favor of the 'Skins. I was going to argue that the Colts' play was done at a time when they were still in the game (as opposed to here), but surprise is the factor to making a trick play work. If that is gone, pack it in.

                No. No. The Colts trick play was worse because that play never had a chance, I mean NEVER had a chance.

                  Why do people always call it the "Philly Special"? The Patriots may not have been the first to do it, but didn't they pull the same play successfully earlier in the same season?

                      The Philly special was an illegal play. The former head of officiating tweeted that it should have been a penalty, not a touchdown.

                        Rams stole the decoy punt return from the Bears. Hester faked a fair catch, Knox caught and went up the sideline to score but it was called back on the most bullshit phantom holding call by Corey Graham. Would have brought the bears to within 3 points with about a minute to go and two time outs vs the Packers. Sigh.

                              Come on guys. The Colts were down by six points, in the third quarter! All they had to do was punt. The skins we're at least desperate.

                                I'd love to see just how Coach Gibbs would have reacted to this travesty of a play.

                                  That out route from the center was kind of open. Is the center a wr? he could have scored. I’m gonna add that part of this to my swinging gate package.

                                          The colts/pats fiasco was a worse trick play because the 'center' apparently didn't know he wasn't suppose to hike the ball. At least that Zorn play was intended to be a play. Bad coaching makes it a worse play over bad execution or foolish stubbornness.

                                                So was this supposed to be a screen play, with there being more blockers on the left side of the field than defenders?

                                                That might have worked, especially since even though they showed it once and then tried it again, the defense seemingly fell for it. However, if that's the case why didn't the kicker try to throw the screen?

                                                Aside from the two linemen not trying to block, the kicker never even looked to throw the screen, but based on the movement and none of the players aside from one running, that's what it was.

                                                      I assumed the Colts play but I'll give it up to you after a great breakdown of both plays.
                                                      It's to bad the Giants didn't pull off the Pick-6 since I think you'd have no debate if the gave up a TD for a likely 10 point swing over kicking it.

When the Colts play happened, I said it had happened before, and I couldn't remember who did it, and I swore it was worse. And my friend didn't believe me. I knew another team had run a stupid play.

                                                                    And it was worse. I remember watching this game going W......T.......F?

Was the first game under Bruce Allen. "If it works great. If not, F you."
