Was close enough that it should have probably been reviewed 

 

I agree. And had the ref not blown the whistle, I believe Doyle wouldn't have stopped and would have moved that little cornerback beyond the line to gain.

honestly I don't think JB even thought about it. he just ended up with the ball back in his hands and saw an open guy. doesn't matter to be honest

It does matter with respect to the refs blowing the whistle too soon.  The league needs more pertinent examples as to why they should let the play finish when safety is not the paramount concern.  There have been way too many examples of quick whistles this season.

Unless I was watching a different game Doyle was run out of bounds at or behind the line of scrimmage. what is the concern?

The concern is the whistle.  It blew, so he quit trying.  Otherwise, I don't think that 60lb lighter corner back would have stopped him from getting six more feet.

I think he needed at least 6 more yards. The pass he threw behind Doyle on the play before was a 3 and 6 unless I am mixed upon my plays. I felt it wasn't even a close call.

you are probably correct on down and distance but he was run out of bounds at least 3 to 4 yds behind the line of scrimmage. Didn't feel it was close.

It was 4th down. If we are talking about the pass that was batted back to JB and then he tossed it to Doyle.

I thought it was a lateral also. However that play didn’t matter at all. It was 4th down and Doyle wasn’t going to make it passed the first anyway.

On the issue of quick whistles, I imagine there are some NE fans you could talk to. In Sunday's game KC TE Kelcie clearly fumbled the ball and a NE player picked it up and was end zone bound for a TD when they blew the whistle. On review NE was given the ball, but didn't score. They lost by seven. Bellichek  was furious. And as much as I hate NE he was right. Cost them the game and possibly home field.

Aww, gee. Somehow I'm happy it happened. :applause:

 

Oh, and it coincides with them getting caught cheating yet again. Surprise, surprise!

Yeah, I thought it was a lateral too.  Made that comment on the game thread right after it happened.  Not sure if Doyle would have played it differently or not had the whistle not blown.  As with virtually all things with these refs, if reviewed it would have ended up the same way, so I just consider this more water under our broken bridge.

It was a lateral. It was also inconsequential as Doyel wasn't anywhere near a first down. 

 

Why don't we cut block on quick slants?

    • Not sure what you have seen during college or post college to determine that one Qb is a game manager and another other is not.  The physicality prism?     All the Qb can do is to see where to throw the ball, then throw it there accurately. The WRs have to go unscripted too, and find an open spot, or a spot that he can be lead to.      After 5 seconds from the snap of the ball, whether the Qb makes that decision and throws the ball from the pocket or by running to the right hash mark doesn't matter, other than being on the right hash mark provides half as many opportunities to see where to throw the ball and throw it there accurately.   If unscripted means that my $125 mil Qb is carrying the team by making 25 yard scrambles for TDs, and is treated as a runner, I don't want that.  Its pretty to watch and nice to have, but its not really what the Qb position is about, IMO.
    • I believe Reich has shown that he adjusts his offense to his QBs style, Therefore it's most important to get the best QB we can draft, instead of getting the best fit for a certain system   To me Fromm is like Gordon who has a lot to prove (if not more because he had a way more talented team). I keep hearing how smart he is but, Fitzpatrick is one of the smartest QBs to play the game and I wouldn't want him on our team, If we drafted him though I wouldn't trade back into the 1st for him because that would mean at least 3-4 QBs were taken and we could get him with one of our second rnd picks.          
    • The scrambling ability is not why I don’t want Fromm. I want a guy that can put a team on his shoulders when things aren’t going right.  A game manager is not going to give us a team that can compete with Mahomes the next decade. The ability to make plays unscripted though is something that is important in the NFL today with players getting faster. Having a QB that can go off script when a play breaks down is huge.
    • Jones is who I want...even if it's a franchise and trade.   As for DEs...I would look at Clowney. Would step right in and replace Sheard.
    • I think most want a QB who doesn't have to carry the team just to be competitive.    Reich had both the scrambler, Wentz, and the statue, Foles, and won with both.  Don't get fooled into adopting the scrambling trendiness as being something essential.   Its merely about how long a QB holds the ball to allow something to develop.  Some leave the pocket. Others stay there until the last second.  Running to one side of the field normally cuts your vision of the field in half, limiting the options.  We have the pocket to give any QB time to stand there and extend the play.  Most teams don't.   I'm intrigued by Eason.  I like his height.  Its tough to substitute that.  Obviously Herbert too.
