If the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ defense decides to dive at the knees of the Giants’ offensive lineman during a play in which they’re kneeling the ball to runs out the clock,  guard Chris Snee already knows what he’s going to do.

“We’ll just tighten up and just be ready for them to fire off,” Snee said, via the New York Daily News. “And I wouldn’t change my reaction in any way. If a guy dives at my knees, my knee is going into the back of his head. That’s what happened in the game, and that’s what will happen going forward.”

I really don’t have a problem with a defense going after the football during a play in which a team is kneeling the ball down to run the clock out.  My biggest problem is that the Bucs’ defense dove at the knees of the Giants’ offensive lineman.  That’s exactly how you seriously injure someone and possibly end their career.  Not smart at all.
