wonder why teams don't try to utilize midgets to give them a leg, errr stump up over other teams. Think about it.

In short yardage situations, you could hut the ball, hand off to the midget then get one of your strongest guys to line up as a FB and toss the little focker over the goalline.


Or, defending FGs. You could again take your strongest guy, and throw the little feller up in the air to try and block the kick as it goes in the air.

I'm sure there are other utilizations, but I wonder why no one has thought of this. :shrug:

The FG idea is definitely against the rules.

The Broncos will be testing this theory in the upcoming season.

1. No player on offense may assist a runner except by blocking for him. There shall be no interlocking interference.

Obviously, they turn a blind eye to pulling and pushing, but tossing is a little blatant.

I cant wait till we run a sweep, and Will knocks one of those midget corners over into the mountains. ROFL

Linemen have a hard time seeing where a midget is going.

Larry the Cable Guy had a joke about paying a midget prostitute $25 to go up on him.

The NFL needs a rule change... to see Boomer and Kendrel hurling midgets at the QB over the line.. thats damn good TV!!

Or watch as Willie Roaf grabs the midget in the backfield and starts a hammer-throw spin.. then launches the little dude 30yards downfield while the rest of the line blocks for him.... thats freaking sweet!

Statistically, would that be a run or a pass? You wouldn't want to get penalized for having linemen downfield.
