No. You try to control the outcome as much as you can. If Kuhn KNEW 100% no one touched it, I agree, run away and hope the other two players do the same. What are the chances the other two guys know the ball wasn't touched by one of their players?

The wisest choice to me is clear. You control the outcome. You fall on it and secure it. No doubt we've seen folks fall on it and it squirt out, but I'd rather a player try to be smart, than just twiddle his thumbs HOPING no player on his team touches it.


Plus, if you fall on it, then you get the ball right there, instead of watching the ball continue bounce down the field losing more and more field position.


Control what you can control. Fall on it and secure it. That's the wise play. To me anyway, but again, I'm not the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree :)

I would say Kuhn getting anywhere near the ball dumb. All we had to do was not touch it and it was our ball.

But then again, I also ragged on Jeremy Ross for that kickoff he grabbed as it was going OB, so I obviously don't know some of these ST rules as well as I should.

D'oh...

It wasn't even remotely close to having touched any of our players... until Kuhn, of course.
