But at the beginning of the broadcast they said he “was a leader!” and already “passed many of the tests to be a head coach”.Just brutal clock management by Indy here. Absolutely BRUTAL.
You call a timeout after the run because (1) you need to stop the clock, and (2) you need to really think through your best play there.
Full quote ... oySaturday’s answer in the presser is worse. Paraphrasing: “I wasn’t pressed for time”.
That makes no sense (though I understand the protecting the QB angle), because if the QB is running for the end zone and dives for the score and barely crosses the line, that should be a TD. But this rule would spot the ball at the 2 or wherever he started to dive from.I believe the current rules treat head first the same as a feet first slide when it comes to spotting the ball.
I would say that maybe 35% of the time there is something insightful said, or he sees something I didn't necessarily see (usually because of camera angle), but the other 65% of the time you want to launch the "ref in the booth" into the sun along with the guy who threw the flag.Having a barely articulate former ref in the booth to say that every call is correct for incomprehensible reasons that rarely match what is shown on the screen is some Cold War era Pravda bullshit.
That was embarrassing for everyone. Saying that the elephant in the room makes the room look more spacious just makes asses of all in the room.But at the beginning of the broadcast they said he “was a leader!” and already “passed many of the tests to be a head coach”.
