    The Michael McCorkle "Mac" Jones Thread

    "They", or "he"? If you don't think Jones is a top 10 QB, for instance, what specific plays do you think a better QB makes? He wasn't close to perfect, I would be surprised if he ends up a top 5 QB at the end of the year, but watching today I thought he played pretty well and I'd be surprised...

    The Michael McCorkle "Mac" Jones Thread

    I thought he looked pretty good today, given the weather conditions, opposing defense, and personnel; when the all-22 comes out I'd love to hear which plays you thought he should have made better decisions/throws on.

    Super Bowl LV: Game Thread – Kansas City Chiefs @ Tompa Bay Bucs

    In this year's NFC championship, shortly before the long completion Brady also threw one right to a Packers DB who alligator-armed it. Could have been a much different narrative if he had held on...

    2019 Game Goat Thread: Wk. 17 vs Dolphins

    I think they're arguably a top 2 team. Officiating fucked them against the Chiefs, or we would have been resting players today and unconcerned about the outcome. And it's not like the Chiefs cruised to victory today - the Chargers could easily have won. Division games are often a rock fight...

    2019 Game Goat Thread: Wk. 17 vs Dolphins

    Tackling. Just inches short of making big plays throughout the game.

    Week 5 NFL Game Thread

    Bad throw, but still looked like blatant DPI to me (and maybe even a facemask).

    #DFG: Canceling the Noise

    If the balls were at 12.5 psi before the game, then undoubtedly they'd be below that at half time due to the temperature, right?

    The Game Ball Thread: Week 15 vs the Dolphins

    Despite the poor matchup I actually thought the coverage on Wallace was pretty good; just a good throw and great catch.

    Mankins with 2 TD yesterday

    Sure, now that the game has happened it's easy to say Wendell played well, but I think Phragle's right to stick to his pregame assessment - Suh against Wendell is a mismatch and clearly Wendell's worst of the season.  Looking at how it actually played out just invites hindsight bias. ...

    2017 Gronk: Mojo Gronk

    The "OPI" on him was taking it to a whole other level.

    How is Manning never flagged for grounding?

    The Game ball Thread: Week 7 vs. Jets

    The worst thing about this is that even if it's a catch, the defender stops his forward progress in bounds and the clock should continue to run, which might have ended the game by itself.

    The new look OL

    To be fair, typically they're not allowed to cross the line until after the snap.

    Revis the Patriot: Countdown to March 10th

    I thought he played pretty well today.  Not sure there was much he could do on the long throw down the sideline; looked like a great route and timing between the QB and receiver.

    The AFCCG Post Game Thread: at Denver

    Does anyone have any thoughts on why both lines looked so bad?  I mean, I get that a talent infusion would help, but the O-line in particular had appeared to be gelling as the season progressed, and I didn't expect Denver's D to present such a formidable challenge.

    The Welker Hit on Talib

    Maybe "lunge" would be better than "dive", but it looks to me like Talib's taking a path that doesn't put him on course for any contact, so Welker makes a last-second adjustment to hit him.

    The Welker Hit on Talib

    I thought it was uncharacteristic for a Denver pick play, in that Welker basically dove into Talib, whereas usually their picks are less obviously OPI because the routes are tightly choreographed.  I think diving into Talib made it a borderline dirty play, though I think the intention was to set...

    Ridley's butterfingers...not delicious

    This happens all the time. It's just usually not a fumble because the offensive player is down by contact (because he's been touched by a defender). The Ridley play was fluky; I don't know why you can't accept that.

    Aaron Hernandez charged with 1st degree murder; released by Patriots

    Indeed. Only a football player would be convicted of attempted murder for trying to hack people to death with a machete, pour gasoline on them, and ignite them. That's NFL culture for you. Oh wait, sorry, that was Ugueth Urbina. My bad.
