people are acting like the NFL hasn't been around for 100 years and that violence on the NFL field has never happened before.
Honestly there is a tidal wave of hype around this incident that isn't in the least bit deserved.
the indefinite suspension is fair. What Garrett did was very wrong and he needs to demonstrate that he learned his lesson before he should be allowed back on an NFL field.
Talk of criminal charges is asinine. It's also probably a violation of agreements signed in order to become an NFL player, which I'm sure includes a waiver of legal indemnity for actions and injuries that take place in the ordinary course of play and practice on the football field.
Ultimately, this debate doesn't need to happen. Justice has already been served, such as it is.
Also as far as criminal or civil claims, Rudolph has practically zero grounds to pursue any further action since Rudolph's own hands are not exactly clean in this whole mess. He was arguably the one that started the fight in the first place after all.
"I have video evidence that the plaintiff was the one to start the fight" has been the death of more than a few claims for civil damage or criminal charges in the courts of this country. A jury isn't likely to favor the guy who started the fracas.
My God, you're right...
It's a conspiracy, man.
If Reich know tha hez company loyal to stand by the nonsense and the obvimously lack of talent an holes on diz roster then then he knows that if he shows JB can't reaf his progrezions den the opposing teams will have the advantage! Reich try to tank for a top 10 pick! We all know it!
BACK TO THE PILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*I lost today's internal battle, because of my brother to the north... A certain south park song I am dieing to use as justification
The lack of light front carries is either play calling, or JB's choice. Light front carries may also be down simply because of down and distance when facing light fronts. I'm guessing this goes at least partly to JB's struggles with reading Ds.
And using "stacked box" stats are very imperfect. It's not always about what how many are in the box, it's what those guys do when the ball is snapped. The stacked box stat typically only measures 8+ defenders in the box at the time of snap. What it doesn't tell you is what the front seven does. Do the LBs play the run or go into coverage is the more accurate measurement, along with how much nickel and dime coverage you see.
If I were a D vs JB, I'd go standard package (no nickel/dime) most of the time, and have the LBs play run or shallow crossing, which is what we are generally seeing. 4 DBs on standard downs is sufficient vs our current O.
I'm going to say Reich and JB are making it more predictable. If the passing game is more successful, and the play calling isn't as conservative, we're not having this problem at all. Like I said in a previous post, very few team have RB1s that are dynamic in both running and passing. And honestly that's not Reich's O.
Mack is 12 of 14 (yes only 14), so he's been very reliable. It's more lack of targets and play calling if anything.
He is an APB. An APB does not run it between the tackles often, and that's what Reich typically calls for him... An APB is a change of pace back that is usually more edge, sweep, receiving, and gimmicky. I'd say his "average" play, is a product of use type.
White rushing is 32 attempts for 104 yards, and a 3.3 average. Hines is 22 for 66 and 3.0 with mostly between the T rushes. Last year with Luck, Hines was 85/315 and 3.7 rushing.... do you see the difference....
Yes it's rare to have a stud #1 RB that excels in both. I think we are under utilizing Mack in the passing game, and I think Hines is hampered by both rush play calling, and by JB in the passing game. That's what they numbers suggest anyway.
