    Emmanuel Sanders and the mysterious cramping

    Can somebody pull Emmanuel Sanders aside this week and get him signed up for some acting classes? I'm all for finding an advantage in a game, making your own luck, or whatever you want to call it, but if you're going to fake an injury at least make it believable.

    You're standing around in the huddle and then you casually fall down and all of the sudden there are trainers around you stretching out a cramp. When Collinsworth and Michaels can spot that and laugh about it you know it was obvious.

    If indeed he were faking, then shame on him. That is poor sportsmanship. If not, then no worries. Sadly, we will never know. I bet the Steelers will hear from the league about this incident.

    It's one of those things that's not funny when the opponent does it. But when your team does it it's hilarious.

    Why do people think he faked it, what advantage was that for us? It pulled him off the field for a key 3rd down and we wanted the clock to keep moving.

    He saves the Steelers a timeout because on the previous play, Ben was destroyed by the Bengals defense. Manny cramping up bought the Steelers some time without having to use a timeout.

    Haha it was a little cheap and I would be upset if an opponent did it but I thoroughly enjoyed it

    Wasn't as bad as the team last year who had two players go down randomly in the huddle..
