Absolutely, and he didn't have to run those 30 yards and take a hit.
Nobody likes getting hit.
You do know the ball gets advanced to the 25, right?
I didn't actually. I don't like the rule. I don't like a lot of the pussification rules. Hell, I don't like that in the NFL you can just watch a kickoff land in the end zone. I think the kicking team should get a live ball. Screw this tiddlywinks BS! This is America, baby!!
At any rate, he was clear to the 30 if he had midgets blocking, so he gave up yards.
