Jerome Simpson is was amazing in the game on Christmas Eve day as proved in this demonstration of his athleticism. I was watching the boring Browns game but they interrupted it to show us this play and my jaw just dropped, WOW! I could watch this over and over again. It's that fantastic!
First of all, the guy is running and jumps over the defender who is standing right in front of him! How can he even jump that high? Not only does he do that, but he keeps holding onto the football with just one hand all the way over and into the end zone. Plus, for style points, he adds a flip and lands on his feet! I couldn't believe it when I saw this! Gerard missed it because at the time he was out walking our dog, but when I saw it on Yahoo news, I called him to show him. His reaction was WOW too!
To top it off, when he was interviewed, he was actually humble about it and when the announcers were all giving him 10s and one even 11 for his gymnastic stunt, he gave himself a 9 because he did touch down with his hand on his landing. I never knew who Jerome Simpson was before I saw this play, but now I don't think I'll ever forget him. It was just amazing, you have to see this! Even if you aren't into sports, you have to appreciate the beautiful display of athleticism on this one.
One reason I like watching football is the athleticism and knowing that at any time, someone could make a huge play so there's always hope--yes, even for Browns fans like me. In my book, Jerome Simpson holds the record for the most amazing running touchdown ever! This will be hard to beat!
The Browns did have a big play too though but paled in comparison to this one. Josh Cribbs had a long punt return that started on the right side of the field and crossed over all the way to the left side as he ran one in for a touchdown. It kept the Browns in the game and provided some spark for us Browns fans.
