they need an impact wr more than an rb. is there a reason they cant get blount back from detroit once they are 1-6 at midseason?

I'll take the W and sleep well tonight.

They needed 3 things:
1. The W
2. Wentz to look healthy.
3. No major injuries coming out of the game.

They got all three. Wentz looked like Season 1 Wentz, which is totally fine for his first game back. He should improve as he gets practice and the weapons come back.

Outside of Jalen Mills, there hasn't been a ton to fault the defense for this season. I think the D line has become slightly more vulnerable but hopefully that changes when they get Jernigan back. They need continued pressure up front because the secondary is nothing special (and wasn't last year either).

so your boy bailed in the lot because of the rain. his cousin bailed at halftime. the immortal supe never made it to the seats. this left me to fend for myself in 2H. i meandered around and found some empties lower level behind the end zone.

the game ended right in front of me. cool shtein. from these seats you have terrible depth perception when its on the other side of the field, but when the action is in front of you, its awesome.

as for the game, without looking at the tape, looked like colts schemed up the line well. lot of extra rushers and well designed stunts caused the pressure. smallwood ran better than ive ever seen. godirt is a zesty athlete. the eagles really really need alshon. was the hold that extended the winning drive legit? i saw nothing. oh and nice to have carse back. hes pretty good.

I don't remember seeing a replay on TV. There were very few replays of any of the penalties. Makes me wonder if this is some new dictate coming down from the league because it's not just a problem with the Eagles games.

Itís a win.

The first Mills PI was bullshtein and the rule needs to be addressed. If a ball is underthrown and a player is running full speed and has to slow up what else do they expect the db to do?

Wentz looked fine.

They need Alshon back bad. I wouldnít be opposed to trading for a veteran receiver either.

The O line has been struggling with stunts and delayed blitz.

they dont want qbs getting hurt because qb injuries kill ratings and fantasy stats. its simple. the rules are there to prevent the qbs from getting touched. the sport depends on healthy, good qbs.

Kind of ridiculous to watch a sport where the action takes place in ten second bursts once a minute, and then half of that action is being undone by penalties. No one who didnít grow up with the game is going to be attracted to watching that.

yea i mean this is fair take

flags so far this year are up about 1 per game from last season and 2 from a decade ago. pretty easy to guess where that extra flag is coming from. so on the whole its not like theres more holding penalties than before. they just need to fix up what constitutes RTP or at least make it reviewable
Title: Re: Week 3 - Colts: The Prodigal Son Returns
Post by: Diomedes on September 25, 2018, 09:24:45 AM
I saw that play and cursed the NFL.

If QB injuries so drastically cut the money stream that they must be protected regardless the effect is has on the game, why not disallow sacks entirely?  Relegate the D line to solely a run-stopping function, put more players in coverage, and give the fans/gamblers a product that routinely yields combined final scores in triple digits.   Would have fewer penalties to slow the game down, and everyone gets more money.  Win win!

ya think?

there were more roughing the passers last night in the first 25 minutes of the game than there has been in any full game since 2001

on pace for 187 this year (though to be fair they cant possibly keep up this pace) there were 105 last year

i still get way more mad at the pathetic PI calls in the league...i would say at least half of those are terrible calls....i dont even care about the total number...but giving teams brutal PI penalties that end up always in a first down and many times giving the offensive team huge chunks of yards they didnt deserve has cost teams games on the regular and has borderline ruined the sport

I just want to add that Rapelisburger's flop was at least as awful as the flag itself.  You gonna act like that, maybe you should go to the sideline and have concussion protocol initiated.

PI should be reviewable. Itís insane that something can be a 40 yard play and thereís no mechanism for making sure the call was right. Even if itís upheld 90% of the time at least get rid of the egregious ones.

how they dont have the college PI rule that caps it at 15 yards is beyond me

PI should be 15 yards rather than spot fouls.

flags so far this year are up about 1 per game from last season and 2 from a decade ago. pretty easy to guess where that extra flag is coming from.

illegal contact penalties have TRIPLED this year

its a complete joke what they give the offense in this league

Illegal contact penalties in the NFL have tripled this season compared to the same period last year, a largely unnoticed factor among those fueling a record-setting start for offenses.

There have been 24 such flags thrown this season, compared to eight in Weeks 1-4 of 2017. Officials penalized teams only 38 times for illegal contact during the entirety of the 2017 season, prompting league officials to make it a point of emphasis for 2018.

Both narratives are fake.

18: There was an average of 0.5 Illegal Contact penalties per team league wide.
17: There was an average of 1 Illegal Contact penalties per team league wide.

This is per team, not per team per game. You're comparing 4 weeks to a whole season. That site doesn't count offsetting or declined penalties, which I'm guessing is the difference between the 16 and 24 count for this season.

This is because the number of illegal contact penalties at the beginning of the 2017 season was unusually low, not because this year is unusually high. The number in 2018 is lower than in 2016 and way lower than in 2014 or 2015.

promoting offense in the nfl is not a narrative....its a real thing

the move towards offense has been going on for many years

the point is it got to low last year so they had to artificially inflate it back up this year cause all they care about is offense

pathetic
