    The Throwback Screen

    Easily the prettiest offensive play of the season thus far.
  2. Jackson is a player. Some guys are just NFL players, and he is clearly one.
  3. Yeah, the NFL has a major problem on its hands. I think it has a new vision for the essence of the sport, but is afraid to make radical overhauls en masse. I bet if you are around long enough to see the NFL in 20 years it will be virtually another game altogether. They've been chewing away at the nature of the game for years, and I don't think they're about to stop.
  4. He should have never gotten back on the field so soon. I understand his motivation, but ironically it may end up costing him.

    The Super Bowl is going to stink. Amiright?

    If it's like last year, it will stink for me. The NFL has skewed things too much in favor of offenses, and it's making the game, as a whole, less enjoyable for me personally. I miss games like the 1990 NFC title game. (Yes I know the AFC title game that year featured a 51 point performance.) In today's game if there is a low-scoring game, it's usually not due to good defense, but inept offense.

    I Think We Will See More of DJ Moore

    I should have done this for you: But sure, I get being prepared - that's good. But there are always ways of simplifying plays / calls for the rookies. For me it's risk vs reward. If you've got a player that can change a game with their talent, you find a way to get them on the field in a capacity that they can handle.

    I hear ya Ron.

    Someone needs to explain to Ron that when you have dynamic, electric players, you play them. Just being a veteran does not qualify you to be on the field over a better player. Ron frustrates me because I like so much of what he's about. If he could get past his blind spots, he could be an all-time great coach.
  9. Truly. I mean just understanding the play conceptually would allow even below average athletes to be effective enough to allow a positive play in that scenario. Know your job or get off the field. (or be a veteran / liked by RR)

    Failcons Lost PIE thread!

    It's always a good day when a division rival loses.
  11. I guess sarcasm struggles to get out of the digital pipe. (unless I'm failing to see it as well. )
  12. What a novel idea - paying attention, and then adjusting, to what is actually happening on the field.

    I think his combination of humility (from what I've seen), hunger and raw athleticism / ability will translate into a productive career. He just needs some more game action and I think he really has a chance to grow into something. Very happy for him. (& us)

    The refs?!

    If the pre-season is anything to go by, the league is turning into an absolute joke. You're almost better off asking the QB, "Would you mind laying down please sir?" when you get within earshot. The NFL will then start penalizing for not asking the sensitive QB politely enough.
  15. Sometimes injuries are blessings in disguise. We don't know how things will play out if Matt isn't on the field, but we do have a pretty good idea how things will play out if he is. I'm sure we'll line up 5 guys. O-line can be pretty heavily influenced by overall unit chemistry, and maybe things will be better. (glass half full)
