I still think Luck has one of the best hard counts in the league, even from being a rookie. 

 

Yeah he is, there's no doubt about that.

does anyone know if AV was listed with a groin probable, or what status was he?  he looked pretty decent on the EPK

 

From memory I think it's cleared up?

Except the fact that he wasn't actually holding. 

He did have his hands inside his pads so it really was a hold.  32 should have let him go right away. Bad player makes bad play. Hmmm

Playing smart so far. Not doing too much, but capitalized on a short field. Very good.

It's powerful, I bet he could shatter glass haha 

 

So you're saying Luck is going to make it into a Marvel movie is my takeaway here.

If that is a hold, and I agree that it could be interpreted that way, then Olinemen hold on every single play.  So if they are going to call that, then they need to throw a flag on every play from scrimmage.  What I am advocating for in consistency, if that is a hold then so are the holds on the Oline, because you are taught to grab the inside of the shoulder pads when blocking.

OPI? The rare call. 

 

MM looks rattled here, I'm liking the play calling on D so far.

Bingo.


Why I hate holding flags... it's like refs just have an RNG running for whether to call holding or not.

    • Also I want to note something else.     I don't think the talent around him should be used against Fromm.  Tua is on a loaded team and so is Trevor Laurence who everyone has already crowded as the #1 pick in 2021.     Shoot Tua has 3 receivers who are projected to go in the 1st round.     And quite frankly Burrow's team probably isn't lacking for talent either.  If you want to hold the abilities of his teammates against Fromm I think you should hold it against those others as well.     My biggest worry with Fromm is that he doesn't have the zip to put it in tight windows.     Tua there is actually a little concern about arm strength but the bigger worry is if he's going to survive in the NFL.  Dude has had a lot of injuries for a QB playing behind an Alabama OL.  On top of that he's also on the small side which helps lead to the impression that those injuries are more than just bad luck.  
    • I actually don't think so.  I think with the success of Lamar Jackson (and the NFL being a copycat league), some team will overdraft him and probably take him the first round.
    • I wouldn't support it. Brady has sharply declined. Give me Rivers in a one-year deal. Better version of Brady at this point.
    • Based on his game by game stats here are my impressions.     He folded against some of the better teams.  I understand he doesn't have the talent around him to pull out a win in these games, but I expect a good future NFL QB to have a decent game where he would at least post a stat line that would show that they are alone willing the offense to moving.   Just doesn't happen.     Against LSU - 15/30 for 130 yards 0 TD's 3 INT's   Again I get that he probably had to play hero ball here but I would like to see some hero ball that is actually successful   Against BYU   29/49 394 yds 1 TD 3 INT   His team was down only by 7 at the half.   So you can't excuse his 3 picks on him having to force things.  He chose to force things.    On top of that in games that are competitive.   Against Wake forest.  A game that I will note Utah State was leading at the half  (No excuses)   33/48 416 yds, 3 TD's and 3 Int's.  Given that this was a 3 point game his int's probably cost his team the game here.     On top of that he had an RB that had 141 yards on 19 attempts for 7.1 yds/carry.     Against Nevada which they won handily.     13/31 169 yards 1 TD 1 Int.  In this game he had 2 RB's over 8 yards per carry, another at 6.2 yards per carry, Defense chipped in 2 Int's and he had a kick return for a TD.   Who the heck throws 31 times with your run game and defense destroying them like this?     To be fair towards the end of the season and the bowl game he had some pretty strong games.   But I don't think I can look at this and say "he was on a bad team".  To me the best construction I can put on this is a guy who started believing his own hype, called his own number far more often than he should and endangered the ball far more than he should have in order to impress the scouts.   To be fair if that is the case it can be corrected and it does seem like he might have done that late in the season, in fact he has some statistically solid to good games towards the end of the season after his team was destroyed by BYU.   But at the same time at the beginning of the season he never seemed to lift his team to victory and based on the stats it seems like he might have called his own number or forced some things that actually cost his team the victory.   This does raise questions about his maturity which I think he has to answer.        
    • I 100% agree, and I see the Chargers being the winners if they want him.  Makes sense, his family is there, they already have a home in LA I believe, and he get to prove he was great even without BB.. (the last part be harder to prove at his age.. now 5 years ago yes.. lol)
