So I was reading some round 1 analysis and when reading about the Pats pick it mentioned that the Patriots had the leagues worst ranked defense in defending short yardage rush situations. Really puts that last play of the SB into perspective.


RUN THE F'ING BALL CARROLL!!

The pick slant was being a bit cute, but if Butler hadn't read that play and executed on it perfectly, it wouldn't have been such a big deal in the media, because it'd be an incompletion or a touchdown, both good scenarios for Seattle.

Speaking of short yardage rush situations, Lynch on the whole year had ran it from 1-yard line 5 times and the results?
2x stuffed
2x run for loss
1x TD

So it's not like it was completely guaranteed, though I think they'd get it in if they ran a read-option.

Emphasis done by me:

Quote:
The Buccaneers went ahead and took one potential distraction out of the way, signing top pick Jameis Winston to his rookie contract before the rest of the draft was over.

And in doing so, they eliminated another potential distraction.

According to Peter King of Sports Illustrated, the contract contains a clause prohibiting Winston from playing professional baseball during the length of the deal.

While that should be an easy call, Winston created some concern in Bucs officials by expressing his desire to at least consider playing baseball at some point, saying “It has always been my dream, but I’m just playing football right now.”

Really, Tampa Bay? THAT'S what concerns you about him?

Yep. Scared of him playing baseball.

Not the felony rape accusation or the various misdemeanors he's been linked with (or caught on video committing).

TB really knows what is important.

Kinda late at this point, but more evidence that the Pats probably cheated

From what I'm hearing the basic decision is that there was purposeful intent to cheat somewhere in the organization. There is no evidence that any of the higher ups (Belicheck, Kraft etc...) knew. However, it is probable Brady knew.

Remember, in 2004 or 2006 (can't remember the exact year) Brady and Manning banded together to convince the league that the road team should provide and control their own balls. Prior to that the home team provided all balls. Brady cares about his balls. Deeply. It is unlikely anyone touches or manipulates Tom's balls without him knowing, or allowing them to play with his balls.



So, I'm expecting some lost draft picks for "lack of organizational control." Also, perhaps a fine and a short (1 game) suspension for Brady.

In other words



Edit: Patriots get penalized for deflategate

Quote:
The league announced that quarterback Tom Brady was suspended four games, the team was fined $1 million and will lose its 2016 first-round draft pick and a fourth-round pick in 2017. The league has been considering punishment since the release of investigator Ted Wells' report last Thursday.

Rules Change!!!

Extra points:
-kicks will now be attempted from the 15. You can still fake or go for 2 from this position in the case of a bad snap or something.

-teams that openly elect to go for 2 will have the ball spotted at the 2.

-defense can now score 2 points off a returned turnover.

I like all those. Nothing major but it makes the after-TD action slightly more entertaining.

Yeah, the entire point was to make the play less ceremonial. To "add skill" to the play.

Quick stat, kickers made 32/33 from the 15 last year. 96/104 over the last several years.

Yeah, not exactly adding too much more pressure, but it's something.
