An American football term for when the quarterback drops to one knee immediately after receiving the snap, thus automatically ending the play.

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.
Coach: John, listen - we got 5 seconds remaining, pass the ball to Porter, Porter - you'll take a knee and end this game.

Players: Goooooooooooo........ Tigers!

"Take a Knee", heretofore called TAK. This term comes from American Football. Should you f**k up during practice or worse, during a game, the coach tells you TAK. I first heard this term in 1985, though I believe it originated from an earlier date.
Coach Says: Miss your read...TAK. Miss your block...TAK. Miss your hole...TAK.
Ex: God...mit John Doe! Get your blocks or you're taking a knee.
Ex: Jesus Freakin' Christ... that ball fell right through your hands, Take a Knee.

"Take a Knee", the worst diss in sports. This term comes from American Football. Should you screw up during practice or worse, during a game, the coach tells you "take a knee" where which you go to the sideline and kneel down on one knee so that the team and audience can see your total humiliation. I first heard this term in 1984, though I know it has to originate from a date way before my time. My coach of at least 45 yrs. old at the time used this term.

Coach Says: Miss your read...Take a Knee. Miss your block...Take a Knee. Miss your hole...Take a knee.
Ex: God...mit John Doe! Get your blocks or you're taking a knee.
Ex: Je..s Freakin' Chr..t... that ball fell right through your hands, Take a Knee.

The act of kneeling down on one knee while pointing a finger towards the sky and pounding an alcoholic beverage of choice. The taking of knees can be passed out between comrades drinking, however once you command the taking of a knee the person taking the knee is free to return the favor. "Knees" are taken for many reasons including to get drunk, to celebrate, or as competition.
Mike to Ryan (who has a freshly opened beer)- "Ryan take a knee"

Ryan- kneels to the ground points his finger towards the heavens and pounds his beer.
