Every time I watched Taylor Lewan he was pass blocking. M hardly ever ran to his side. In last year's game, M ran to his side twice for no gain. On the goal line, Lewan was thrown into the endzone by Hankins and then Hankins tackled the ball carrier. I don't see what others see in this guy.
Earlier this season, a TV announcer said that a placekicker can be moving forward before the snap.
I imagine that he would have to be set for one second like everyone else first.
Why wouldn't Dastrup wait until after his mission to decide where he wanted to play ?
#1 - An onside kick is not a penalty (illegal).
#2. - Give me some examples in other sports where a team can benefit by committing a penalty.
#3. - If a team is "just a little" behind, they can apply legal pressure. If they are "way" behind, too bad for them.
I hate watching a 30 minute free throw competition at the end of some games. So:
If a team commits a foul in the last two minutes of a game, the other team can elect to take the ball out of bounds instead of shooting free throws. In the last minute of the game, the offended team may also elect to have ten seconds ran off the clock in addition to shooting free throws/taking the ball out.
A team should not gain any advantage by committing fouls.
I love it when Desmond howard wears a tie......I can tie a smaller knot in a bedsheet.
