Bears legend says that they faked injuries to stop the clock
Brian Urlacher is retired now, and all of his former coaches have left the Bears, so I'm sure he really doesn't care about the ramifications of his statements at this point. He wants to keep his name in the spotlight, and apparently he found a way to do it.
Urlacher says that when the Bears were playing some high-powered no-huddle offenses, they would fake injuries to stop the clock and give their defense a chance to rest and reset their personnel.
Technically, the NFL can't really do anything about it, particularly with their newly increased focus on player safety. On the off chance that a seemingly fake injury is legitimate, they have to tread very carefully if they even try to enforce a rule against this sort of activity.
That having been said, now that Urlacher has publicly admitted to the Bears doing it in the past, one would assume that they're not the only one and there are several teams doing this. We even saw it in the Georgia-Clemson game last weekend:
What's your take on this tactic? Should the NFL do more to prevent this? Is it inherently wrong? Or is it just gamesmanship? Let us know what your take is on this situation, and what the NFL should do (if anything).
