    WC Pre-Game Thread: Tennessee

    I thought this video was an interesting look at Gilmore and the pass D (the title is a little more sensational than the content), but I don’t know enough to really evaluate what he’s saying. I’d be interested to hear what others think, and it’s a long wait til tonight. View...

    2019 Game Goat Thread: Wk. 9 at Ravens

    Can someone with more knowledge than me say how Goatish the playcall was on that fumble? It looked like a screen with no blocking—saw that a few times last night and always looked dangerous. What is the thinking there?

    2017 Steelers: MyFace Champions

    Actually, and I thought this was strange, but he starts out talking about a sneak, but here he mentions asking for a QB draw and Tomlin says 'maybe when you were younger'--someone with more knowledge can correct me if I'm wrong--but a qb draw requires a lot more quickness than a sneak, right...

    Celebrating What Is

    Orlando Cabrera's personalized handshakes were a key factor in the 2004 WS win. I estimate that they were equal to Keith Foulke in terms of impact. There is no amount of time he could have spent on them that I would describe as 'too much'. How many WS titles did Williams, Yaz, Rice, Lynn, and...

    Cataloguing the Laws of Belichick

    Vollmer to be Released

    Celebrating What Is

    I generally like the Around the NFL podcast (which is the NFL.com beatwriters). Their recap episode is basically 70 minutes of them sitting in a studio at 2am walking through the comeback, using the Socci/Zolak radio calls for highlights. The moderator is a salty Jets fan, and one of the writers...

    The Best Defense is a Good Offense - Pats 2016 Defense Discussion

    "The Belichick Letters" by Mark Sessler at NFL.com http://www.nfl.com/BELICHICKLETTERS I don't know that the article makes it ok to write a letter to Trump, but it's a great Belichick story. The author also talks about the story on the October 4 Around the NFL podcast.
