4th down, he has Young in his grasp, game over. He just lets him go, and Young scrambles for a 1st down, Giants lose. I've never seen anything that bad, well except for Roddy White's drop today. It was Matthias Kiwunuka (sp), worst play ever?

You'd think that was the dumbest thing ever, but what you see is the result of the modern NFL's QB rules. If Young HAD thrown the ball, and he gets taken down, anyone want to bet that he get's a 15-yard flag.

He must feel pretty bad right now, guarantee he slams the next qb he grabs.

I heard on ESPN he was quoted as saying he thought he heard a whistle. 382 is right. With the league babying the QB's so much, he was probably thinking he better let go or he'd get called for a 15-yard penalty.

When I first saw it I thought the same thing. That he was scared he'd get a penalty for roughing the passer so he let go. With the way the league wants to protect quarterbacks and the refs throwing a flag if you even touch a QB I'm surprised you don't see plays like this happening more often.

Sad isn't it.
