Flacco’s play has me thinking Darnold is a top 5 QB

Mahomes
Wilson
Brady
Rodgers
Sam

Green Bay down by 28, 4th and short, punting.

I mean, what's the point of punting, you need points? Field position isn't an issue.

Gase is 30-40 in his career.

31 of those 40 losses is by double digits.

How is he still coaching in the NFL?

2nd best Jets QB of all time?

Sanchez, Pennington, Ken OBrien or late career Boomer?

Good day to have the Miami D in Fantasy. D playing the Jets is going to be the daily fantasy play the rest of the year. Jets have nothing on O.

The only thing that sucks is at TGG they are already embracing the tank.

I reallywant to see Clemson play the Jets. Dabo over Gase may be the difference

Tommy and Gronk look good today. I love it! Completely out classing Rodgers is the cherry on top.

Lawrence will pull and Elway/Eli and refuse to play for the Jets.

or

He will play for the Jets, but they'll go through 3 coaching staffs over the course of his 5 year deal

Watching the Seminoles coach yesterday and Gase today, I would take Norvell right now.

They'd conceded the game and were just trying to get Rodgers out of there alive. Yes, I am aware that they also didn't do a good job of that, either.

Packers RB Jamaal Williams earlier this week, referencing Brady's fourth-down mishap last Sunday: "I'm pretty sure my quarterback knows what fourth down is, you know what I mean? That's what I'm saying, like, Aaron Rodgers would never do that. Never. (Rodgers) is too smart for that."

38-10, Brady. SHUT. UP. JAMAAL.

Someone in one of the game threads noted that Vrabel is one of the best coaches at clock management. He did the punt shenanigans at the end of the Wild Card game last year and he routinely has Tannehill snapping the ball with 1 second left when they have a lead. Looks like we got some more evidence of tVrabel's clock mastering yesterday. Appears that late in the game on a 2nd and 1 for Houston, Vrabel intentionally took a 12 men penalty which stopped the clock. Helped the Texans score quicker and save some time left for his offense.

Wow, that’s kind of amazing. Definitely intentional because you when the 12th guy initially went in you can see him subtly trying to tell the players like “settle down this is intentional” and then he makes a big show of being pissed only when the flag is actually thrown.

It was clearly intentional, but I don't think Sharp's point that He "knew the Texas would score" is necessarily true. He wanted to save the 40 seconds, regardless of whether Houston scored.

Either way, it was a pretty sharp move

Right, I think it's less that "he knew they would score" than "he knew they would likely get the first down so giving up a five-yard penalty on 2nd and 1 wasn't that big a deal to him."
