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) 

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.

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

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.

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

    • Rodgers is a top 10 QB of all-time and by the way he is 11-8 in the playoffs with a SB win. Only QB's off the top of my head that have been better are Brady, Montana, Unitas, Elway, and of course Peyton. Peyton was 14-13 in the playoffs, just above average but the difference is he has won 2 SB's which is huge.
    • Between Darnold and Eason somebody should be able to play football long term with our coaching staff and personnel.
    • Exactly how I feel. And Brady has been in some of the most exciting Super Bowls, which has made the hate die for me. 
    • Spygate's impact was before Spygate was revealed, IMO, that is why it goes back to those first 3 rings. Then articles about Doug Flutie, who was a backup Patriots QB hearing instructions from the sidelines well after the 15 second cutoff for QBs, were also released that created pause for a few folks. The fact that Charlie Weis and Brady, who was not nearly the QB he was now, then, being able to know what was coming from Blitzburgh D in 2001 and 2004. For Hines Ward to suggest the Patriots were calling their defensive plays before it happened, you can view it as sour grapes or believe there is some merit to it. As recently, the filming on the Bengals sidelines they were docked for which does not reflect well on the organization that was already caught for SpyGate. The hiring of a guy Ernie Adams, who had a photographic memory, hired by Belichick, to radio down signals based on their filming, there were articles about it too. He was not an OC or DC but had Belichick's ear. There was way too much smoke to not suspect fire. Whether you believe it or not, it is purely up to you.   We won't truly know because Goodell destroyed the tapes of the sideline filming when he was a fledgling commissioner and at that point, the integrity of the league was something he was trying to protect and later, over compensated with excessive punishment towards Patriots for Deflategate, IMO. So, unless Belichick or someone in their staff comes out and admits it, you will never see more proof of it. It has been hashed and re-hashed, so again, I don't wish to participate in too much back and forth on this front, people will believe what they want to believe.  I will leave it at that.   But as far as Brady is concerned, what he has done so far reduces that impact, IMO, to cement himself as the GOAT.  That is undeniable to me. First QB to come back from a 10 point deficit in 4th qtr. of SB, first QB come back from 25 points down in a SB, first guy to take a SB to OT and win it, first guy to take a team to a SB in their home team, enough said. The accolades are well deserved.
