Jerome Simpson’s Epic Dive Flop [VIDEO]

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Jerome Simpson looked more like a soccer player on Sunday than a football player.

I can’t tell you how much I hate this play by Jerome Simpson.  During the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, Jerome Simpson was able to draw a 15-yard personal foul penalty on Scott Fujita by acting like a pansy.  I’d suggest that Simpson acted like he was shot, but that doesn’t quite describe his flop.  Simpson acted like he got shot while jumping on a trampoline.  (You can see the flop at the 21-second mark).

I honestly think Simpson should be fined for this.  The NFL should take another step to discourage soccer-like faking antics in the league.  The NFL warned all 32 teams earlier this season that if players were caught faking injuries, it could result in a fine, suspension, and possible loss of draft picks.  If the league is taking that much of a hard-lined approach when it comes to faking injuries, is it too much to ask for a $10,000 fine for Simpson’s pansy routine?  I say no way.  Fine this horrid, unmanly dive by Jerome Simpson and discourage others from doing the same.
