  1. That Patriots defense looked amazing tonight.

    Not to step into this minefield, but the head official actually announced the penalty before they huddled and changed it to not a penalty. I don’t think that happens very often at all. I feel safe saying it basically never happens.

    What exactly does this team need?

    And on the next drive Gronk is mugged and no flag. He made the play so again it didn't change the outcome, but wow are the referees not qualified to officiate pass interference on their own.

    Right on cue the refs in the Pats/Chiefs game call a questionable PI late in the 4th quarter. The Pats had roughed the passer on the same play so it wasn't game changing.

    Speaking of Goff, the Lions really need to get Stafford to the line of scrimmage fast so that the coaches can read the defense for him while the coach to QB communication system is still open like the Rams do with Goff.

    The amazing thing is that Goff did it all by himself without the benefit of a blatant pass interference not being called to give him a chance to tie the game. The real question is could the Rams have done the same thing with a QB not selected #1 overall still on a rookie contract.

    The NFL has an officiating problem.

    While I was posting that the refs didn’t call an obvious pass interference. Wow, what a tough sequence.

    Saints are having clock and it out issues in the final 2 minutes of the conference championship. Incompletion on first down and needing to call a timeout before the second down snap.

    I don't believe he's being blackballed as I don't believe there's been any secret conversations where teams have decided collectively to not sign Kapernick. We don't know what his salary demands are. We don't know if he's willing to sign into a competition. We don't know if he's willing to be the clear backup. We don't even know if he really wants to play football at all at this point. Hiring is never simply about the talent, even today in the private sector fit interviews are seemingly a standard practice for example. So assuming that he's willing to sign at what any team deems the appropriate terms for their situation then they still have to decide if those terms are worth any non-football related risks. In Kapernick's case there's more baggage than simply the kneeling. At the very least there was also the misguided Castro incident and the pigs socks. I think it's fair for a team to question if he will continue to conflate these missteps with his legitimate social issues, causing a distraction at practice and press conferences.

    I don't think that has anything to do with what I am pointing out (unless you are thinking that a full 20% of their run plays were actually counted as pass plays). I don't know how this stat was calculated, I didn't write the blog that referenced it or the post that referenced the blog. Just to be clear, what amount do you think those situation change? 1%, 5%, 10%? How much different is that then the rest of the league?

    That stat was misunderstood by that blog, it was 60% pass. Seattle ran a lot this year though, over 50%. If anything Bevell passed too often for Pete Carroll. EDIT: The link in the blog to the 60-40 split was called NFL Team Passing Play Percentage. Here’s the running play percentage link instead. (it was 40% for Seattle in 2017) https://www.teamrankings.com/nfl/stat/rushing-play-pct?date=2018-02-05
