    Bullshit, dont do that again in the PRESEASON, but if thats a playoff game or something, and its close, you want him to just give up the TD?

    Rivers is a football player, not just one of these pretty boy QBs, and he can take a hit, im not worried about him getting hurt on that, if anything, i think he can actually hurt the other guy

    You say that now, but you know that the risk of getting PR hurt isn't worth 6 lousy points. Maybe in a playoff game... maybe, but keeping our franchise out of harms way whenever possible has to be a very high priority.

    Does this mean Philip has more tackles than Cromartie in the preseason?

    It's leadership by example, pure & simple...it's also part of the reason Rivers' teammates respect him so much. He could've easily jogged and gave a token chase, but despite the fact that it's the preseason and was not his own mistake to begin with, Philip disregared his huge contract and drew from his high school days as a defensive player - that earns him mad props in the locker room, and if a guy like him who has already been paid will go all out in a mere presesaon game, how can any of his teammates dog it and still look their peers in the eye?

    I'd rather see him attempt a tackle than get blindsided like Kurt Warner did.:yes:

    Bruno, I highly recommend the movie. :yes:


    This was the best moment of the past 5 preseasons easily. We laughed for a good 15 minutes straight after it happened, then joked about it the rest of the night.

    DON'T COME WITHIN 5 YARDS OF PHILIP OR YOU'RE DONE. :icon_rofl:


    I agree, the ballflip at the end is easily the funniest part.

    On the broadcast they also showed it from the reverse angle and Rivers was jawing at the guy while he was crawling up his back. It was hilarious! :lol:

    BTW, the crowd in the stadium loved it, even some of the Coboy fans were astounded and said said things like, "What the hell?" and commented on a good tackle even though it was one of their own that got ridden down...

    Pointy :icon_twisted:

    Philip, like I said from the very beginning is a solid ball player. I just hope his time spent in the NFL doesn't go for naught. It seems that way too many players in Dego talk a good game and don't follow through on the field.
