Hours before Eagles coach Andy Reid iced Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes with a timeout called just as Tynes missed a 54-yard field goal, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll tried to call a timeout just as the Rams faked a field goal that resulted in a touchdown.
“I was calling timeout but they didn’t see me,” Carroll said after the 19-13 loss, via the Associated Press. “I was out on the field, I don’t know how far, but I was out there running at them. We saw it from upstairs. I didn’t do a good enough job of getting in their view, because I was calling time out before the ball was snapped.”
The fact that a coach may be trying to call time out in order to stop a fake is precisely why the NFL never will change the rules to prevent icing the kicker. And that’s something we discussed at the end of the segment from Monday’s Pro Football Talk regarding icing the kicker.This video is no longer available. Click here to watch more NBC Sports videos!
