Can a player make himself down with out being touched or going out of bounds to end the play, by putting his knee down or sliding like a quarterback?

Even if he does hit a knee/slide, he still has to be touched by an opposing player.

Back in the day, you also used to be able to down yourself by just yelling "DOWN!". I forgot why they changed that rule.

Either way, someone smack Cedrick Wilson for me. At least I didn't have him playing (look at the final in the Wiener League (20-team version) to find out why it wouldn't have helped).

Wrong. All any player must do is kneel down and declare "DOWN". If you recall, this rule caused a big fight at the end of the Packers-Vikings game last year in Lambeau. Chris Walsh of the Vikings did this, and the Packers (Sharper, maybe?) nailed him because he didn't know the rule.
