I think Trubisky can move around much better in the pocket and having him out against Foles favors Indy

I bet 150-180 of those wins are with him riding the pine 

Did Trubs get hurt or is this a performance type switch up?

It was to spark the team yesterday, but since it worked they are sticking with Foles for at least this week.

I found their sack % opposite of what I thought I would see:

Foles - 5.3%

Trubs - 6.8%

Let's see if the defense can record a safety in the 3rd straight game!

 

 

 Could happen, but teams don't just score safeties 3 weeks straight. It was extremely exciting to see number one versus the Vikings. It was just flat out crazy to see it happen again this week.

 

I'll bet your bank account versus mine it doesn't happen again :goodluck:

Seeing a team get a safety 3 weeks consecutively is about as likely as a an NFL one point play (yes it's possible but has never happened) 

The "extra point" kicks after touchdowns?

A little-noticed aspect of the NFL’s new extra point rule is that we could see, for the first time in league history, a one-point safety.

If the defense gets the ball in the field of play on a conversion attemp, and then a defensive player takes the ball into his own end zone and is tackled, the result will be a one-point safety: The offensive team will get one point. That has never happened before in NFL history.

It had never happened before because it was virtually impossible: In the past, any time the defense took possession of the ball on a point-after attempt (either a one-point kick or a two-point conversion), the play was blown dead. A one-point safety was theoretically possible before, but it would have happened only if the defensive team had illegally batted a fumbled ball in the end zone.

One-point safeties have happened in college football, most notably in the 2013 Fiesta Bowl, when Kansas State blocked an Oregon extra point and a Kansas State player picked up the ball and ran it into his own end zone. The college rule that gives the defense the opportunity to score two points by returning an interception, fumble or blocked kick to the opposite end zone means that defensive teams that take possession of the ball will try to run it back for a score, and sometimes those players end up getting tackled after backtracking into their own end zones.

With that rule now in place in the NFL, it will happen in the NFL eventually as well: Some defensive player is going to reverse field, get caught in his own end zone, and give up the first one-point safety in NFL history.

I'm still a bit confused by this.  It sounds like if there is a fumble on a 2 point conversion and the defense grabs it in the endzone and doesn't get out of the endzone it would be a 1 point safety.  Wouldn't it be a touchback?

Yes but in that scenario it's only a one point play

Yes, that would be a touchback. What the article is stating is that if the defensive player picks up the ball in the Endzone goes into the field of play, then retreats back into the end zone and his tackled, that is considered a safety.

That makes sense.  I guess.

You have to wonder what the coaching staff would told Brissett had they ended up with Foles

From what I read Foles would of been in competition with Brissett. He wouldn’t of been handed the job like Rivers.

This is concerning.  I've always thought Foles was a pretty good QB, probably more so than most.  Not a franchise guy who can carry a team, but solid QB who can win games with a decent team around him.

Its because Foles knows where to throw the ball, and does so, while Trubs is still looking.

That would have stunk.  Rivers is who I wanted and am glad we went that direction.   Good bridge.   I don't really think he makes the team a Superbowl threat, but if we can get to the playoffs, anything can happen.  Best case is that he stays next season as well and we make sure the QB of the future is on the roster.

The Colts kick the ball for a PAT. The defensive team recovers the ball within the field of play and run back into the endzone and are tackled by the Colts in the endzone. 1 point play

There is that small chance, mostly cuz of Rigo punting and the guys who get downfield to down it. It does make it more possible

    • Yep, their DC Wink Martindale had to go blitz happy against Mahomes and it hurt them. They probably realized that if they need to just rush four and bring pressure, they had to improve their interior pressure and hence this move.    It also increases Lamar Jackson's room for error against playoff teams like the Chiefs and Titans mainly. Plus, 2 divisional games vs Steelers are still on deck, the move thus makes a lot of sense. The price they paid was pretty stiff for someone in a contract year but they believe they are on the cusp of a SB appearance.
    • If you have faith in our offensive coaching staff and Frank Reich, you make a trade for Sam Darnold. Something like offering a 3rd for him.   Similar deal to what Tennessee did for Tannehill.  Darnold has plenty of talent, could just need a change in scenery, with a competent coaching staff and offensive players around him. 
    • Venturi is a riot. Hilarious guy. Knows his stuff but he thinks he is the greatest thing since sliced bread, his back has to be crooked from him patting it so much. Also, he does way too many about faces and acts as if there are no receipts of some things he's said.
    • Why is it just about every time irsay releases a statement we're told on this forum that he's  the Best and greatest owner of all time?? I'm not knocking him or anything,  I know it must be difficult for him fighting his demons for most his life and all so god bless him going forward.  But really the greatest sports owner of all time?  Lol
    • George Bremer? Zak Keefer? There're some really good guys there. Doyel and Kravitz might be the only two whose work I'm not a fan of.
