The NFL put the cart before the horse

 

"The Jacksonville Jaguars were on the receiving end of such a call in the first quarter of Saturday's preseason game when Vikings fullback C.J. Ham caught a pass from Kirk Cousins and lowered his shoulder into cornerback A.J. Bouye. Because the Jacksonville defender appeared to lower his head while bracing for contact, Bouye was flagged for a 15-yard personal foul."

 

Yes, there will be controversy this year.

The Owners did this, in off season meetings... the day the coaches went golfing.  It's true...

It's proper tackling technique and what they have been taught since they started playing.

Yes but that is not true for everyone 

 

  I have known several coaches who skirted the rules or taught the way they played

Andrew how do you think you played tonight ??? His response "Not well ".....I agree.

I admire that kind of candor HOF19. Give him time.  I'm not that worried. It takes guts to own your off nights. He'll be fine. Patience.

Maybe but I can guarantee they have had some coaches that taught the proper technique.  Just because other coaches may have not paid attention to the technique. Now they are professionals they will learn it or they will get penalties.

Hines can run the ball but can’t catch kicks

That is why Jacoby will not be traded 

My observation is the same. Just use him like Shane Vereen and a bit of Dion Lewis and cut out all the damn kick and punt return mess.

Yes

  

 

I am not mad about the rule it is the enforcement that I see as problematic

What have you been watching? He had 1 run of 6 yards. The rest he was lucky to get back to the line of scrimmage.

I've been watching him getting skinny in the hole and falling foward, picking up two first downs on 3rd or 4th down.

What about as an edge rusher? Nothing? Has he gotten close? Basham

 

I haven't seen him get close.  He did get penetration on a couple of plays, but its like he gets lost after getting the penetration.

    • I’ve found my new favorite way to watch a game.  Really gives you an idea of what's happening.    You can see play design, who’s out of position, who missed a block, who fell down, even who’s pickin their nose or scratchin their butt. All 22 on the field so you miss nothing.   I especially like to see the blocking bubbles grow or collapse on the line.   I just cant say how much i’m gaining from this.  Each play is run twice...once from sideline (all 22), then from endzone (all 22).  Great to see the plays develop, or a defender fly across the field to a tackle.   No sound, so i will still watch normally first (or radio sometimes for drama), but if anyone never checked it out..... you must!  I cant believe i waited this long.  I have such a better idea of what we’re trying to do and who looks good or bad on EVERY play.   Also, i feel better about last week after watching for some odd reason.  I kept finding myself saying “oh, thats why that happened.”   The normal perspective is such a focused frame , usually on the ball.  We’re missing all the little battles going on in the periphery.
    • Well the misconception was the Jags were going to tank this season. No one told them that.  Your sky is falling opinion is way too pre mature. 
    • My questions are can he find the crack and what will he do mean the crack ain’t there.  Wisconsin doesn’t do cracks, they block chasms against the cornfield circuit.
    • Many die hard colt fans are sugar coating this loss as they want to believe so hard that this was a fluke or lol actually believing the Jags are a good team!  After the Jags just unloaded ALL their probowl talent, you think the roster is loaded?  If their loaded, what do you call this colts roster?  I think the Colts overlooked their opponent even know they haven't won there since a grip.
    • Gotta disagree with you here Nickster.  Taylor racked up almost a thousand carries at Wisconsin with over 6k yards.  I doubt he's got any issues being ready between the tackles at the NFL level.   They just gotta get him ready now.  Make sure he knows his assignments basically.  Nothing against Mack here, but Taylor's a big play back.  He can flip things for you with just a seam at the line of scrimmage.
