    NFL Ignoring Offensive Holding

    So the NFL is basically no longer a thing really. Through 4 weeks they called something like 95 offensive holding penalties vs. 234 from last year. This has led to an increase in average scoring. They also appear to be calling more defensive PI, but I haven't looked up the stats. Interestingly...

    Holding Penalties down 59%; PI calls up 22%

    Now the NFL has its own version of the HoMe RuN and the ThReE pOiNtEr. As if years if eroding away defense wasn’t enough... It’s hard to take it seriously when QBs/offenses accomplish new records...

    Semi-OT: What is the most unwatchable type of football game?

    Set aside the question of which teams are playing. What sort of game makes you think "Yuck, this isn't worth watching?"

    Idle thoughts - baby steps

    I LOVE the 1pm starts. It means I'm done with this early....and that's important as you age. ;) 1. I'll start with what I don't like about this game. a. It is very impressive that Brady threw multiple completions to SEVEN different receivers. That is called spreading the ball around...

    Popular myth vs. reality article that addresses some widespread beliefs

    Saw this on ESPN while I was combing their homepage for scores. It covers a nice handful of popular fan theories like whether or not Brady gets more roughing the passer calls than other QBs, if sitting on the timeout in SB49 vs. SEA was on purpose, if Belichick’s choice to go with left footed...

    Trent Brown's play

    I was hoping to get some opinions on his play this year from others. I think he has done pretty well, especially not hearing his name called for too many penalties overall, which is always a pretty good sign. Do you think he is worth signing a contract extension? Your opinions?

    NFL Gives Edelman Hefty Fines

    Wow. They sure picked his pocket. What plays were they even for? Can’t recall.

    Idle thoughts - The "cliff" edition.

    Well that one was interesting. Maybe not as interesting as a lot of other games this week, but in a parochial sense there is a lot to talk about annual Buffalo beat down in Foxboro. Same old beat down, but with a lot of different moving parts. 1. General Offensive Observations - Kind of...

    Penalties

    During the presser, Brady said an official was told by the League to call the game tighter, to call more holding penalties. Brady also said there’s holding on every play. Both statements are probably true. Here’s a list of the penalties called in the game. New England Patriots @ Pittsburgh...

    NFL scoring discussion

    In 1980, teams averaged 20.5 points a game. This year they're averaging 24.2 points a game, an increase of 3.7 points a game per team over a 38 year period, and increase of 18.0% over that time frame. Why is scoring up so much? Well, clearly yards are easier to gain, especially by way of...

    Al Riveron is such a stooge.

    Anyone else getting sick of him trying to justify these calls every week? I get the vibe he’s never played a down of football in his life. His voice annoys me too.

    If the NFL is smart

    and if they really want to let their referees take charge of games, as they should, they'll look at expanding game day rosters expand rosters to 50......that would let the referees actually use the ejection concept to take greater control of games as it is now, they are handcuffed.....the...

    Idle thoughts - The "injury" edition

    I almost did not post this week. I mean, the game didn't have much in the way of insights to talk about. Indeed, while it was a very workman-like effort on both sides of the ball, it was the injuries that were the only things distinguished this game from the rest, and that is NOT a good...

    Idle thoughts- 'The trampling sound you hear is the mediots jumping back on the bandwagon' edition

    Well, this game started with the Pats getting 4o yds of penalties (some of which were actually earned) and was going apoplectic on the game day thread wondering if this was going to be "one of THOSE games". :rolleyes: I mean Christ, this was Gene Steratore's crew, supposedly the league's best...
