I agree but when the receiver falls like that into you and your turning and not leading with the head...that to me is not the spirit of the rule. It only got called because he didn’t get up...but there was no targeting nothing...it’s not the defenders fault Gronks head dropped when he stumbled and the sides hit each other. I can live with that call to protect guys but then to follow it up with PI when the receiver ran his route out of bounds because the defender pinched him that’s just perfect defense...horrible.

 

Oh well... penalty stands. and i felt it was illegal contact earlier, the PI was 'shaky'

So the point is to deter those hrs. How does one not do something they can’t control?

That’s the rule...that isn’t the spirit of the rule. It’s meant to protect receivers from being targeted and defenders from leading with crown and having head to head collisions. Not a wr who trips and falls into a defender who clearly pulled up and even turned his back to the play.

 

The refs are instructed to rule in favors of the 'defenseless' player (QB or receiver) every time.  Bill Polian has expressed this many times on Sirius XM radion and elsewhere.  I think he was on the Competition Committee when the rule was instituted.

Yeah. I didn't like the play calling on that series either.

What we’re going to see now is Patriots adapting. They excel at that. It will not be easy for Jax going forward.

If Gronk doesn't come back....

I'm trying to appreciate Dr. Pepper 's'The Sweet One'  commercials

 

What EXACTLY are they trying to say about those of us who like  Dr. Pepper??

Lambo nailed it! What a kick, that was huge because of field of position too.

Agree.  Could have been a huge momentum swing.  Gutsy call, though.

I think the independent neurologist will keep Gronk out this game.  We'll see.

I agree.otherwise he'd be on the field by now

As long as Jax scores some type of points on each drive they will be alright.

    • We aren’t beating the Saints so that dream ends there. 
    • Other than MPstack, I was probably the BIGGEST supporter of JB......   I am highly disappointed, and was hoping for more.   But..... it happens.    Time to find the next QB.    The defensive coordinators have figured out what JB can do, and he doesnt have the downfield accuracy and reads to overcome it........     We will get a VERY stacked box the rest of the way.    
    • I was a big supporter of giving JB a chance to show us. Sadly, I was mistaken.  I thought he'd get much better as the season went along, but even taking into consideration the revolving door at WR, its clear JB hasn't improved much at all since 2017 in the things he does control. Time to find some competition with him.
    • This is my view   I doubt that CK is the answer, but I just want to give the kid a chance.... at this point we have nothing to lose   I was at the game yesterday, and when you see the open WRs and how ugly the passes looked you just sort of know....... JB isnt the answer.   At one point he was 4 of 12.  (If I remember correctly)   I may look at things differently than others. I would have never brought in Hoyer.   To me, you ALWAYS have a young QB that you are developing, that is your backup.   I really dont want someone who isnt able to start and win a game. Hoyer has lost 100% of the games he started ... There is a message there.    I would rather lose with a young QB that might develop into more as a backup than an older career backup who cant win a game, when counted upon.   I was hoping that JB was THAT guy..... someone that could garner draft picks in trade, or actually play when needed.  To me......  AFTER THE SEASON, I would move on from BOTH Hoyer and JB.  Its great that they are leaders, but dang........  They just arent NFL starting QBs.  Why have someone that cant be a starter, and has no future chance to be?   Why have someone on your roster like that? If JB was getting better, I say keep him in.   He is not.       Our vaunted OL cant block 8 man boxes.  We are playing against teams that have horrible pass defenses or are in a situation where 3 of 4 regular starters are out (Houston) and we STILL CANT PASS.               There is no way that the loss is 100% on JB, though.... we didnt tackle well, we didnt do a lot of things well.  When you give up almost FIVE HUNDRED passing yards, you have other problems as well               
    • I agree with this.  I thought anywhere from 6-10 to 9-7 was likely, once we got the Luck retirement news.  That's exactly where we're looking to finish.  The thing that sucks is that we started so hot it looked like we were going to exceed those expectations.  At the start of the season I don't think many thought we would end up with a much better record than we're on pace for now.  Everybody just needs to breathe.
