    The Nation's Tears Are Still Here

    Amusing is the national media's attempt to reclaim some glory for Mahomes by saying how he threw the two greatest incompletions in SB history. Terrific plays, but, well,...they were incompletes.

    What really causes home field advantage?

    My mistake the article was about the building of the Cowboy''s stadium AT & T. The article was written in their practice locale, "The Star". The quote below is about AT & T: "So when you look at a new stadium, that no one has played on before, like the new stadium in Arlington, there are...

    What really causes home field advantage?

    How about the fields themselves, particularly crown height? I've been searching around and can't find anything specifying that NFL fields must have the same crown height. In fact, I found an article saying that The Star "It’s the highest crown in any professional football stadium." Depending on...

    2020 NFL: Ongoing COVID-19 Impact

    Is this why BB wore his mask during the entire episode of B-Breakdowns? Thought it was very funny.

    2020 Pats: Roster & Beyond (non-QB edition)

    Gone now. Hate to blame the victim, but he does run so straight up and down. Very little lean.

    2020 Pats: Roster & Beyond (non-QB edition)

    This is a nice example. What I notice is that Harry has patted down, looking at his stride. Sure he sees Hoyer throwing but everyone else is moving full speed still. Yes the backside of this play is for Harry to find the hole, but he's slowing too soon. Not an effort play, his hands are down and...

    RIP Tom Dempsey

    I've been wondering who the referee was? I'm thinking Jim Tunney, but I haven't found a box score that lists officials. Never mind found an article confirming that it was Tunney.

    Bucs: TB12 in TB20 - How Far Do They Go?

    Just clicking around saw this really interesting article form 2018: Run & Shoot in Patriots O. Tampa's QB coach is Clyde Christensen whose roots are in R & S back from his South Carolina, Holy Cross days. Might be a nice pairing. Christensen was Manning's OC/QB coach fro a good part of Manning's...

    2019 Pre-Game Thread: Wk. 9 at Ravens

    They hadn't practiced against it. What a few weeks later they stoned them?

    2019 Pre-Game Thread: Wk. 9 at Ravens

    To some extent. The core, and the LB keys of this play are the guard and tackle pulling. Cleveland did that quite a bit. I was hoping for more from Lazar, I guess, but this clip makes a good compare and contrast. Watch the middle LB. Hands on knees past the snap of the ball. He then stays...

    2019 Pre-Game Thread: Wk. 9 at Ravens

    Yes, unorthodox for NFL, most colleges and HS with QBs capable of running have this play. All the defensive keys remain the same as for a RB, so it should be handled well.

    2019 Gordon Watch: Reinstated and It Feels So Good

    RG didn't want BB to use the Commisioner's Suspended list as a taxi squad. Force BB to make a cut now and live with the choice should... But as stated well by others above I really hope that the reinstatement is what is best for Gordon.
