So I found this, it's basically the betting line that is thrown in.

"The main elements are the [betting] line, the down and distance, and the time of the game. "

Jimmy G makes the Saints pay for extending drives with penalties. Really good throw by Jimmy. Great blocking by the line.
Wow - it is amazing to watch receivers making moves for their QB.

Baltimore just took about 2 minutes off the clock in goal line situation with minor half the distance penalties.

I can't stand the stupid notion that you want to wait to go for 2 until it's too late to do anything about it if you miss.

In a shocking turn of events, Dan Fouts is 100% on the other side of that argument, which makes me feel good about it.

Fouts is so so dumb. Always better to have information on whether the 2 is successful as early as possible.

Of course, now they'll score a TD and Hauschka will shank the XP.

Bills inexplicably going for two, down nine.

But they got it, so what do I know?
edit: shit, I’m as dumb as Fouts.
That's the right move. They need a 2 pt conversion either way. This way they know with more time in the game whether it worked or whether they need a TD and FG.

How are they tying the game without getting a two point conversion? At least if you miss the conversion now you know to manage the game as if you need two more scores. If you count on tying the game on a do or die two pointer (not to mention they can WIN the game with 8 now), that’s no more likely to be converted and you’ve lost minutes of game clock.

The sooner you know whether or not you'll need another score, the better. So you're better off going for two now. No sense in waiting.

I meant I want him back now, but, like I said, not gonna happen.
Jimmy G is playing great this year, but he wouldn't be doing any better than Brady for the Pats this year (in my opinion). I watch a lot of 49ers games and let's just say the scheme and talent around him help him a bit. Jimmy is playing really well. Much better than I thought he would. He is probably a top 10 QB in the league now without a doubt.

Every single time Allen has had someone one on one deep, he's overthrown them.
