A kneel down only happens when you're already ahead and just killing time. I mean, a game deciding homerun that's hit in the 3rd inning or the last pitch in the ninth aren't referred to as a walk off home run or a walk off pitch, so i have no idea why you'd think that the term should apply to a kneel down in the first place.

there's some seriously faulty logic in your complaints.
Got it.

Why don't we just start referring touchdowns to "home runs" while we're at it?

Not a bad idea, but I don't think everyone likes baseball or it's terminology and they may get upset if we do start mixing the two sport's distinctive and colorful phrasings.

There was also an OT TD at Fedex where Dallas ran a flea flicker to win the game.

Didn't the Redskins also win the first ever game at FedEx on a Westbrook TD in OT against the Cardinals?

And there was this game

I see you're having a Tony Kornheiseresque moment here, Beem. This seems like it would be ideal material for a TK column. The football purist in you is taking exception to the adulteration by baseball terms. Recommended listening: George Carlin on the "Football is for real men and baseball is for pansies" issue - will reinforce your view.

However, you should know that there are many terms, integral to football, that didn't originate within the sport. For e.g., "taking a knee" came from boxing.

Who cares, we walked off the field winners and that's all that matters.

Oh by the way, this is my walk off post.

Re: A "Walk Off Touchdown" ??

I love mixing sports analogies. (heheheehe, analogies)

I was at a Nationals game earlier this year where Soriano hit 3 home runs. We were really close to the field, so after the 3rd one I started yelling "HAT TRICK" and I chucked my hat onto the field right in front of the dugout. Needless to say, I was completely trashed and had to ride the Metro home with a really bad case of hat-head, but still.

I like "game-ending" better than "walk-off". I also like pizza - pepporoni is my favorite. No veggies.

I prefer "season-changing" to game-ending.

Re: A "Walk Off Touchdown" ??

Would you guys have considered it a "walk-off" touchdown if the Skins had been going towards the other endzone and Moss just kept running straight into the locker room?

looks like you didn't get it, despite claims to the contrary. this is obviously going to turn into a worthless arguement if it hasn't already, so whatever, have fun.

I think it was phrased coined for yestersday's game.
Skins-Chargers 2005? Oh wait, that was pain and suffering, according to many analysts, effectively ending our playoff hopes.

Using your own definition of "walk off" then my example DOES work. Kneeling down in the last minute also doesn't give the opponent a chance to respond. Sinking the last ship in a game of Battleship wins the game without giving the opponent a chance to respond since his ship has been destroyed. You can go on and on with that insane term.

Faulty logic indeed.

stop being so dense. a last minute play to win the game. kneeling down doesn't put points on the board. Again, you're saying the last pitch in the 9th inning should be called a walk off pitch (and no one has EVER called it that). it's extremely faulty logic and this is why this thread is worthless. maybe i should have appended that it sshould be used for athletic endeavors, cause honestly, no one's going to use it in battleship, and you know that as well as i do :P. you've dug in so far that you're not going to be reasonable and argueing with you about this is just a waste of my time. See the huddle, shane, sunra, etc threads from a year ago. you're not going to change your mind and you're convinced of your own faulty logic.


and you wouldn't call a touchdown a home run. you know why? cause it's already got a name, which is called a touchdown. you're not argueing to change that to "a scoring play that's worth 6 points." walk off may be from baseball, but the term fits, so why try to create a new term when you already have one that works? in japan, a hot dog is a hot dog (hot-o doga) cause they'll use american words for things that they don't have names for, and english does the same thing (ie, buffalo). I have no idea why you're so worked up about this, but you seem to be the only one.
