Bosher's horsecollar probly saved a TD.

there ya go. doesn't matter what direction the defender comes from, if he grabs the pads and yanks the runner down backwards, clearly what happened in the play, then it is a horsecollar tackle. bosher did it, bosher drew the flag. a fan can say it didn't happen, but it's on tape, it was flagged, therefore in the reality of what happened in the game, it happened. you can argue it all you want but it happened, end of story

If I remember correctly, we had two other defenders coming that were ahead of him. So if Bosher didn't get him, one of the other two may have.
