    Flutie converts NFL's first drop kick in 64 years

    NFL.com wire reports

    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (Jan. 1, 2006) -- Doug Flutie added another oddity to his football résumé when he converted a drop kick in the fourth quarter of the New England Patriots' game against the Miami Dolphins.

    It was the league's first drop kick since the 1941 NFL championship game, according to the web site for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

    With starting quarterback Tom Brady sitting out most of the season-ending game, backup Matt Cassel threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Tim Dwight to cut Miami's lead to 25-19 with 6:10 left in the game. Flutie, who was listed as the No. 3 QB, came in for the extra point and lined up at quarterback.

    After a timeout, Flutie took the snap, dropped the ball and kicked it off a short hop through the uprights for one point. He ran off the field and embraced coach Bill Belichick.

    According to the Hall of Fame site, Chicago's Ray "Scooter" McLean converted the last drop kick in the Bears' 37-9 victory against the New York Giants on Dec. 21, 1941.

    I saw that when they showed the highlights on CBS. Something that you would least expect.

    I had heard of drop kicks, but have never seen one. I hope there is footage for those of us who missed it.

    It was awesome! You have to have total cooperation from the football. LOL


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?
