The use of taking a knee comes only near the end of a game when your team is in possession of the ball and holds a narrow lead (by a touchdown or less). If you execute a run or pass play, you risk turning the ball over and allowing the opposing team to gain possession and a chance to score. By taking a knee, you are able to run down the clock without putting the ball at risk.
A boring, if strategically important, play.
Players: Goooooooooooo........ Tigers!
Coach Says: Miss your read...Take a Knee. Miss your block...Take a Knee. Miss your hole...Take a knee.

Ex: Jesus Freakin' Christ... that ball fell right through your hands, Take a Knee.
