    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.

    2020 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.

    The Nation's Tears: Volume III

    This is correct. Always worth it in "amateur" ball to defer and see if the other team will make this mistake.

    Celebrating What Is

    Excellent FOOTBALL analysis. Why can't Boston writers do this (most haven't got past the zone v. man thing)? First mention I have seen of the old school six man front they used or the clever deceptions with Jones.

    The Game Ball Thread: SB vs Rams

    Probably has been covered, but what game did Brady go back to his old helmet?

    Romo and Juliet: the Art of Pre-called Plays

    Ha, yes, but the 3-4 v. run is in essence 5-2. See the pic from the first Chiefs game. Traditional 5-2 knockdown, SS rolled up. This D is notoriously vulnerable to the off tackle play. Guess where they ran? And McDaniel forced this look with the I formation. If they were calling this at the line...

    The Game Ball Thread: AFCDG vs Chargers

    All of the above, add Dorsett. Could have become a complainer when Gordon was here. His TD was the put away.

    Chip Shot in New England?

    -1 Headline from SF Chronicle: "Questions over Chip Kelly’s willingness to adjust 49ers’ offense" One of McDaniel's strengths is his ability to adapt the offense to his personnel and further to adapt the offense to take advantage of the opponent's defense. Adaptation is a rare form of humility...
