  1. As Tony noted it is $35.99, but that ends tomorrow I believe. Regular price is then $39.99. In a normal year, they sell it for half price at the All-Star break, but who knows if that will happen this year (the sale and/or the All Star break).
  2. I'm no help with that, either.
  3. Should stream the games on twitch or youtube, and have the board comment in a virtual game thread. πŸ˜€
  4. Isn't Gus Edwards an exclusive rights free agent? From NFL.com: Exclusive rights free agent (ERFA): Any player with fewer than three accrued seasons and an expired contract. If his original team offers him a one-year contract and the league minimum (based on his credited seasons), the player cannot negotiate with other teams.
  5. I didn't say they were balanced for the game, I said they were relatively balanced up until the point it was 28-6 halfway through the 3rd quarter. If excluding the two minute drill where they started on their own 5 and passed on every play is twisting things, then I'm guilty I suppose. Looking at the gamebook pdf on NFL.com (I counted anything listed as a scramble/sack/interception as a pass), here's the breakdown of run vs pass and the score at the start of each drive. Drive 1 – 3 passes, 4 runs. Score at start of drive: 0-0 Drive 2 – 2 passes, 4 runs. Score at start of drive: 7-0 Titans Drive 3 – 3 passes. Score at start of drive: 14-0 Titans Drive 4 – 6 passes, 5 runs. Score at start of drive: 14-0 Titans Drive 5 – 13 passes. Score at start of drive: 14-3 Titans. Halftime Drive 6 – 8 passes, 5 runs. Score at start of drive: 14-6 Titans Drive 7 – 1 sack/fumble. Score at start of drive: 21-6 Titans Drive 8 – 8 passes, 1 run. Score at start of drive: 28-6 Titans Drive 9 – 8 passes, 2 runs. Score at start of drive: 28-6 Titans Drive 10 – 10 passes. Score at start of drive: 28-12 Titans Drive 11 – 9 passes, 1 spike to stop clock. Score at start of drive: 28-12 Titans
  6. I tend to agree with a lot of this. If you exclude the two minute drill at the end of the first half where they ran pass plays on 13 straight plays (what else would you expect in a two minute drill starting on your own five yard line), they were relatively balanced in terms or run pass ratio...up until the point they were down 28-6. From that point on, if I counted correctly, they passed on 35 of their final 38 offensive snaps. They were down by three scores, running wasn't going to get them back in the game - even if the Oline wasn't getting dominated. So sure the final play count is way out of whack. The play calling was moving the ball...they just couldn't come up with a key play when they needed it. Now, why they didn't use Edwards more, I can't defend that. I think what it really came down to was execution. The Titans executed and played smart. The Ravens didn't. The Titans scored three touchdowns when they started drives at the Ravens' 45, 35, and 20 yard lines. As for the Chief's comeback....once falling behind 24-0 their next three drives started at the Houston 42, 33 and 6 yard lines. They made a play on the kickoff return to start at HOU 42, but the next drive was that stupid fake punt by the Texans, and then followed that up by recovering a fumble on the ensuing kickoff. Credit to the Chiefs players for making plays when they absolutely had to. The Ravens just didn't when they had to.
  7. Titans have just played smart and in control. Ravens too many mistakes. Drops, bad passes, stupid penalties. They lost their mojo on the flight home from LA. They didn't lose, but they didn't look like the same team after that.
  8. OLine getting its ass kicked.
  9. Picks: 49ers Chiefs Seahawks abstain - not a commentary on what i think will or won't happen Saturday night - just a quirky superstition I have to never pick for or against my teams in post-season activity.
  10. Just went back and looked at the 2000 schedule. It is amazing to see and remember just how dominant that defense was in terms of points allowed. In the four losses the defense allowed 19 pts, 14 pts, 10 pts, and 9 pts. Unreal.
  11. Agreed. Harbaugh does deserve credit for the changes they instituted in the off-season to tailor the offense to take full advantage of Jackson's skills, I didn't think they would be able to pull it off. And lots of credit to Jackson as well for his improvement, particularly with turnovers - if he was still fumbling like last year this team wouldn't be 10-2 either.
