I guess if PI is not called as much, DBs can play a lot more aggressively, hold, etc. If it is called tighter, they have to back off the receivers allowing QBs to complete more passes.
Average o line when Tarkenton played - 6'3" 250
Average o line today - 6'5" 315
If Minny is Iowa, then who is Iowa supposed to be?
I have a hard time believing outside of a scandal or violation, Urban would fire an assistant after 1 year.
Mildly disappointed i had to scroll this far down to see this.
I feel like that Carlos Hyde guy may be a pretty good running back.
Except 1 dropped pass on the opening drive shouldn't equal only 1 carry for your RB in the entire first half.
Now once he started fumbling in the second half, that's a different story and typical coach move.
I'm pretty sure a large number of current NFL quarterbacks have a body that look like that.
There may be a slight talent gap between us and 95% of those teams we've beaten. The Jimmys and Joes thing. My high school could have a perfect game plan against the Patriots, but it would matter very little. But another team on equal footing of the Patriots executing that same game plan would have a very different outcome.
Yeah it's the same thing our own fans say.
The scenario was a hypothetical. 3 points was an example. Maybe it's 1. Maybe it's 0.5. But it is skewed.
They most certainly are skewed so that they can make that money you're talking about. If they look at the metrics they normally use to set lines and determine Clemson and Ohio State would be even, they will then move it to Ohio State -3 knowing the Ohio State fanbase will still bet it to a bet distribution that they want. If they left it at even, too much money would come in on Ohio State.
We are about a 3 point favorite. But Ohio State football lines are skewed by the fans.
Most accomplished =/= best. I appreciate JT and everything he's done. But I'm not sure I'd say he's the "best". My initial inclination is still to give that title to Troy.
To those going the route of "should they just live in a bubble? you can get hurt doing anything." Stop. The counter of this would be asking if they should constantly engage in high risk activities because really you can get hurt doing almost anything so really there's no risk in rock climbing, base jumping, drunk driving, etc because it's really all the same.
To those claiming "you can get hurt in any game." You're making their point. They've gotten to this point. The combine is in a few short weeks. It's not a conference game. It's not the regular season; it's an exhibition. If someone sat out a spring game, would they be a quitter?
These two have performed at a level that almost nothing they do in the bowl game will help their draft status. But an injury certainly could hurt it. It is clearly against their best interest to play in the game. So if they decide that they want to protect their future, then good for them.
9th because Dolphins decided to try to draft like the Browns that year.
But what if you actually have two horses and the second one is better?
Absolutely. Rawls got me a pathetic 3 points in fantasy in the playoffs last night.
You realize just because 11W is free doesn't mean the writers don't get paid, correct?
A position with the Browns is never an upward trajectory.
If you think assistant coaches leaving to go to other programs negatively impact a team's title chances, then considering we may lose 3 of our 4 defensive coaches, we're screwed.
So is Hubbard apparently.
And Pitt beat both No. 2 and No. 5. What's the point of this comment?
You must have missed the years Troy Smith was here then.
Also, if you're just going by ability to pick up third down, TP was ridiculous.
Saying J.T. is as good of a passer as he was as an 18 year freshman is not an endorsement. That is bad.
You're not crazy. People entertaining the idea that the B1G will get two teams with neither of them winning the conference in the playoffs when there are 5 power conferences are crazy.
