Stick to What You Know...

This is my advice to Bronco's kicker Jason Elam after he pulled his hamstring trying to run after a fake field goal attempt. Adding insult to injury, the play was Jason's idea.

Coach Shanahan had NEVER before attempted a fake field goal:

"Part of the reason is that I don't want to take a chance of getting the kicker hurt... Jason assured me that he would not be hurt."

Elam had two great quotes responding to questions after the game:

"I'm not kidding, 12 years. I didn't think he would ever, ever run it. He actually told me earlier in the week, he said, 'Now, you can't pull a hamstring on this."


"I think it's probably just that I hadn't run in a long, long time."
