On the 2 point conversion they had WRs in the game and spread out. They didn't have the power unit in. The power unit got the first down and then the TD, and then they changed personnel for the 2 pt conversion.
If they use the time out, the catch by the goalline basically ends the game. They may not be able to get up in time to spike it.
Totally different play call. No one had stopped the power run yet this year until that play, plus they'd already shown that they're willing to play action out of it
If we’re what if’ing, I’d like to see if Harry could’ve made the end zone on his catch if he didn’t go down with contact. But, on that catch in particular, it looked like it was a solid tackle.That would have been a sensational catch. Falling backwards, leaping, a defender all over him, and that throw was zipped in there.
AGreedMaybe the least upset I have been about a Pats loss in 15+ years. Sea is a very good team (top 3 NFC).
Cam looked awesome honestly. Seems like they gotta let him throw a bit more.
The D (the supposed strength) was a weak point, giving up 35 and the Pats score 30 and lose.
Tip the cap to Russ and their O.
Yep. You can maybe make a case for spiking the ball but it was definitely right to not use the TO there.If they use the time out, the catch by the goalline basically ends the game. They may not be able to get up in time to spike it.
You keep the TO because it opens up the playbook. If you have no TOs and 20s, then you're basically throwing into the end zone. With the time out the defense has to defend the whole field and risk catch and runs into the end zone.
Again, they did not stop it on the 2 pt try. They stopped a Cam run with Edelman and other WRs on the field. They had not stopped the power package which threatens a run in different directions or the play action that got them the prior TD.I thought before the play when I saw Edelman on the sidelines it was a mistake going with the jumbo package. The play is too one dimensional, Seattle has already stopped it on the two point try, and the one wrinkle (flipping it to the fullback) he already been used. Would have liked a bootleg with some receivers in the end zone while also giving Cam the option to run it.
Oh well, a good game and lots to build on. He got a lot of shit but Harry made big catches all night.
Im sure we’ll see more wrinkles out of that look as teams key in. The FB rollout was good. Gotta get some TE involvement there too.
We have been lamenting odd Josh's sometimes odd plays calls for 15 years ( minus a few Broncos years). End of the day he got us to within 2 yards of a win.Tough loss. Josh called some real head-scratchers. He may have a tumor.
I mean, they also "knew" Cam was taking the ball when they play actioned out of it the last time they saw itWilson saying they knew Cam was taking the ball. They were on the two yard line. I get that Cam isn’t fast, but we’ve seen him rolling out looking for a receiver at that distance and running it in if there wasn’t a target. Seattle had that play covered.
Says more about you than him given that the greatest coach in football history has used him as a key offensive coach for the greatest sustained run of high level offensive play in NFL history.Never been a McDaniels fan. And probably never will be.
All true. That last play call was absolute shit.Says more about you than him given that the greatest coach in football history has used him as a key offensive coach for the greatest sustained run of high level offensive play in NFL history.
they had 30 points and what, 400 yards passing with that offensive talent?
play calls always look bad when your line gets blown up
