There’s a qb behind Tom Brady that can win a super bowl? Because NE still does it and he’s not quite the size of Ben. The chances of a player getting hurt on that type of play is much smaller than during a typical play. 

As for the onside kick: when you kick off from the 35 yard line, you can’t expect the opponent to get the ball at the 35 to start. You expect the 45, seeing as it has to travel 10 yards anyway. The defense had shown no capability to slow down their offense. Therefore, If Jax recovers and doesn’t get a first down, it’s between the thirty-five and forty. A fifty plus yarder. Call it a coaching mistake if you want but the reason for it is pretty simple if you consider all factors.

Two fourth and ones where a six five two forty qb didn’t just lean forward says otherwise. And not just today or this year. His play calling has been atrocious for years. They haven’t run a qb sneak since twenty fourteen. Explain that. 

Comment 15 Jan 2018

He won when he had a great defense. You can argue who let the defense get old before rejuvenating with younger talent but it’s taken longer than expected with major misses in the draft. He’s Mendenhall fumble from being two and oh in Super Bowls. Now that the defense is on the way back, especially when shazier was manning the middle, they’ve got a narrow window with Ben to get it done. Fifty going down was going to make it hard this year. Can’t replace that type of guy. New OC should improve the offense too. 

Comment 12 Jan 2018

Fair enough in your assessment and I could definitely agree with all your comments. Hard to replace the experience JT leaves behind. The top 3 corners next year will be experienced and I think OKudah is next in line for 1st rounders. We should start to see that next year. The O line replacements are key to a potential title run to me. I hope those move up to “5” for each position. If that happens, or more, this team looks poised to contend. Whether it happens is another story. 

Comment 12 Jan 2018

I can see where you’re coming from for sure.  Always tough to replace a guy, especially at that position, with that much experience and leadership. 

Comment 12 Jan 2018

Honestly forgot about him when I made this post. Shows the amount of talent this team possesses and is losing. You’re right, he’s been an under appreciated and undervalued player over the last couple seasons. 

Comment 12 Jan 2018

I believe he did redshirt in 2016, so he’d have 1 year left if he chooses. However, he’s a senior by academic standards and will graduate this spring, I’m guessing. 

Comment 12 Jan 2018

My Bowen filling in Jones comment is assuming Bowen resumes his original position at tackle. I just believe if he doesn’t and stays at guard, it means the tackle that does start is a solid player. 

Comment 21 Dec 2017

Imo, carman’s Comments were very similar. Didn’t feel the pressure at Clemson? If you can’t twke the recruiting pressure, how you gonna handle it when titles are on the line? Urban is on the back end of his career? Why not just ask him yourself? 

Fwiw, i think he was always annoyed everyone expected him to just be a buckeye and wanted to prove everyone wrong.

Indy is a very central city in the big ten footprint and provides a great atmosphere/close proximity for pre game interests. I’m sure other cities do as well but Indy has been a great host for it so far. Don’t figure it’ll be long before they venture elsewhere, like basketball. 

Comment 29 Nov 2017

Bingo. How else do you explain clemson being #1 ahead of 1 loss oklahoma and undefeated wisconsin, let alone auburn? Clemson has easily the worst loss of that group. Auburn's are to clemson and LSU and okla's to iowa state, a fringe top 25 for most of the year. Clemson has the best collection of wins, according to the committee. The buckeyes resume is far better, especially at the top, than alabama's would be. Not to mention their last 2 actually opponents were a loss and a 7 point game. Based on the comments from the committee, a win in Indy puts the buckeyes in, I think.

Comment 23 Nov 2017

You know what doesn’t end up mattering when the committee gets together? All those fancy numbers. 

Im telling you right now, osu’s chances are better if okla, bama, Miami all win. Those 3 teams are locked and now we’re fighting pac champ usc, ND, and non champs UGA, and Clemson for the final spot. I think in that scenario usc ends up 5, with ND, Clemson, UGA after that. This gives the conference champs matter crowd their fill and somewhat of a reasonable order to the rankings. 

Comment 23 Nov 2017

I’ve failed to see the committee’s love affair with bama, and Miss St, which is propping bama up. I just don’t understand it. I think bama looks much worse than they have in recent years, injuries be damned. Everybody has injuries, it’s just an excuse imo. 

Comment 23 Nov 2017

Ohio state will have beaten two top 10 teams, BY THE COMMITTEE’s rankings, to get to 11-2. USC would have played 1 game against a top 10 team (ND) and were whipped. Wash State is currently behind usc. The pac 12 is a non factor.
