  1. I think it's amusing that Bellichick seems to be the only head coach with half a brain who tries to kick the ball *not* into the endzone, to prevent the touchback. And takes touchbacks when receiving. Does it really take 2 years to figure out, duh, the average starting field position when you take it out of the endzone is like the 15, maybe we should take the touchback to the 25? And that doesn't even include the penalties that can occur - always on the receiving team... I think it's an indication that most head coaches are complete imbeciles....
  2. Blandino and Pereria weigh in

    [Oops, I guess someone else had done pretty much the exact same thing I did, oh well, I guess this is essentially a repost.] I don't think you looked very closely. He regained control extremely quickly, by my 3rd snapshot below. By that 4th picture, he's got both hands on the ball. And when he hits and rolls over, he clearly has good possession. AFAICT, there's enough visual evidence to reverse the call if they had ruled it a fumble. (That's from the following animated gif: https://twitter.com/PeteBlackburn/status/919651084364328961?ref_src=twsrc^tfw&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cbssports.com%2Fnfl%2Fnews%2Flook-jets-hosed-by-the-awful-replay-reversal-of-all-awful-replay-reversals%2F )
  3. Should the Jets File a Protest?

    The thing I don't understand is that the official explanation said that it was clear that he lost possession of the ball again when he hit the ground. Did anyone see any evidence of that at all? Forget about "clear" evidence... AFAICT he had complete control when he hit the ground, and after...
  4. Film Review: Week 5 Jets @ Browns

    That fade TD to ASJ was one of the easiest looking TDs I've seen in a long time. IIRC @Paradiswas begging us to take ASJ. At his first stop ASJ seemed like a total bust. And now .... the Jets have a TE!
  5. Thanks for doing this! 97 looked pretty good in the backfield, eh?
  6. Does anyone have any context on his 21 MPH top speed? How does that compare to other RBs? (The reason I care is that I think the biggest knock against him was his speed.)
  7. Game Observations (JAX)

    Well, he seems to be getting mentioned about as often as Mo, which is good for one of them...
  8. Game Observations (JAX)

    Plus AFAICT he makes Hack look accurate Yeah, that was some damn fine burst. I guess more evidence that your 40 time isn't everything...
  9. ... in the second round
  10. Whether you're for the tank, or for the win - what a horrible play by Bortles on 3rd down in his endzone with 1:50 left in OT. He's rolling out - he has all of this space in front of him. If he runs and tries to get the first down, even if he doesn't make it, the clock is running with no T/Os for the Jets, and his punter will have his comfortable 15 yards...
  11. If it saves you time, I think even a sentence or two about each GIF would be fine. And I for one really appreciate you doing this!
  12. Brandon Shell

    What I see on this play is Shell wide open for a dump off pass...
