His brother Equanimeous plays sparingly for the Packers.Just realized the Lions have a player named Amon-Ra St. Brown.
WFT should get crushed on paper.Apparently Hurtz is going to start @ QB for the Eagles tonight vs WFT.
No, he's saying if there's closer to a minute on the clock, he would have kicked the FG. The thinking being Aaron Rodgers can easily march his team into FG range to kick a game-winner so whether you're tied or up 1 doesn't change your win probability meaningfully.Can someone explain this logic to me? I've read this like 5x and still don't know wtf he's trying to say.
John Harbaugh: If there was any more time left on the clock, we would have kicked - ProFootballTalkRavens head coach John Harbaugh’s decision to go for two after cutting the Packers’ lead to 31-30 with 42 seconds left in Sunday’s game remained a main topic of conversation at his Monday press conference.Harbaugh said he thought about the decision all night and understood the criticism that...profootballtalk.nbcsports.com
42 seconds was a bit more time than you want to go for two, and wanted it around 20 seconds, but if it was a little more than 20 seconds he would have certainly kicked it, but he still went for two?
Does not compute.
Somehow, the soccer gods entered the football gods’ palace where the hockey gods are long term guests.
EDIT: Holy crap talk about lucky on that turnover!

OTOH ideally if there's little time left (i.e. 20s or less), going for 2 is something of a "no brainer." IIRC the probability of a 2pt conversion is about 52%. That may not sound like much but basically a little bit over half the time, you've won the game by successfully converting for 2. Harbaugh is saying 42s is kinda in the gray area, but what he surely factored in is that his team is not at full strength.
In scenarios where a team is a large underdog, wounded or otherwise compromised, a head coach should definitely take any late chance to end a contest immediately. You could argue the Ravens actually had momentum at home, so overtime would have been okay too. But analytics/game theory tends to support Harbaugh's decision.
^^^ Classic Tuesday Morning Quaterback.Ravens should have kicked the field goal and tied the game. They had a chance in Overtime....
True, but the play called was utter garbage.^^^ Classic Tuesday Morning Quaterback.
so, football every day of the week
yay or neigh?
The best part was how they started about 9.5 minutes to go, down only 10 points, just running down the clock on every play, for like 50 yards and no points, to then give the ball back on a no-chance 4th, with 2:54 or so to go...and then like, on the next 1st and 10 stop for a 1 yard gain....called a timeout. To you know, make it competitive.Stick a fork in DC.
