Should teams "run up the score?"
The Dolphins 70 point game yesterday got me to thinking, should teams take their foot off the gas pedal at some point during a game that they are winning handily? what about the "unwritten rules?"
Personally, I have never had a problem with it. I remember back in the 91 playoffs, the Bills beat the Raiders by a 51-3 score I believe. never had an issue with it. I have always figured if you dont want to get blown out, play better. It is not up to the opposing team to make you feel better.
