ORCHARD PARK, NY - NOVEMBER 29: George Wilson #37 and Drayton Florence #29 of the Buffalo Bills walk through the tunnel to the field before the game against the Miami Dolphins at Ralph Wilson Stadium on November 29, 2009 in Orchard Park, New York. Buffalo won 31-14. (Photo by Rick Stewart/Getty Images)

Somewhere in the middle of giving up 49 unanswered points to the Patriots after jumping out to a 21-0 lead, Buffalo Bills cornerback Drayton Florence thought he’d try firing up his flailing defensive mates by trying to draw a flag with one of the most ridiculous flops ever witnessed.  Obviously it didn’t work, but it was pretty fun watching Florence go flying through the air after the gentlest of nudges from New England offensive lineman Dan Connelly.  I can only hope he was yelling “I regret nothing!” while airborne.

If they handed out awards for terrible flops like they do in soccer, Florence would win hands down.  I’m just assuming that awards are given out in soccer for flopping and faking injuries.  How else can you explain why so much of it exists in American football’s slightly effeminate cousin?  

Video follows the jump (pay close attention to No.29)…

That was embarrassingly bad.  I dare say that even Bengals WR Jerome Simpson would probably find Florence’s exhibition totally laughable, and he knows all about ridiculous flops.
