  1. The game has flown by. The first quarter went by with each team having one possession and Detroit early in their 2nd possession.
  2. It really shows the defense just has to get a couple stops in a game. I would prefer more, as it will be needed against better teams. That said, the Lions are a better team this year. Many did not expect much from them, but they have competed in the first two games.
  3. That TD may be the best throw in years for A A Ron.....wow
  4. yep...holding them to a FG was big with the Packers getting the ball, but they cannot waste a single possession now. Defense just needs one stop.
  5. Yep...got one stop, but horrible series. I hated the deep shot on first down. https://memes.yarn.co/yarn-clip/c2f040eb-4d15-4f4f-bc4e-966777b7b024
  6. While I say that, I would add be smart. One thing that would drive me nuts about McCarthy in Green Bay as far as play calling was that he loves taking deep shots on 3rd and 5 or less. No underneath routes to just get a first down if the deep shot is not there. One season, people were critical of Crosby for missing so many field goals. I thought well damn, let him kick a few under 50 yards McCarthy. So glad he is gone, and really happy he is in Dallas.
  7. Bill Walsh had a belief that he had to get his trick play in before his opponent did, and that if it gained a yard, it was a success. I do believe some are too conservative. As a lineman, something like a 4th and 1 at mid field and especially inside your opponent's territory is just time to man up. It's a gut check. I don't mind trying to draw a team offside; but go ahead and go for it.
  8. About time.....damn...only took 30 years 🤣🤣 🤣
  9. It’s ND’s home game though. Last year was supposed to be the home game for Wisconsin at Lambeau, but it was canceled. Kind of glad it was. I never imagined a day that I would be rooting for the visiting team at Lambeau. 😄
  10. Yep…I knew that. It was in response to the comment that longer field goals had been made in the finals.
  11. Yep…corrected myself in the previous post…thanks…should have taken more time in my search.
  12. You are correct…my mistake….should have gone deeper in my search.
  13. I got it from the IHSAA site…..it could be the longest in the finals?
  14. No problem…saw the Eastbrook kicker back in week 2…he does have a strong leg. Congrats on that kick. Also…the longest post season FG was a 48 yarder by Trinity Hines Ben Davis HS 1991.
  15. It’s a tie at 61 yards Bryan Robertson Seymour HS 1999 Jerry Spicer Hobart HS 1975
  16. I still feel that if the Indy Mayor had called Irsay’s bluff, the Colts would have stayed, and the city would be much better for it, buuuuuuuut noooooooo. I think Buffalo is in the same spot. The town holds all the leverage. St. Louis already let the Rams go….and the Cardinals before them. No way a team gets any deal from that town. There are not really any other decent sized markets left for the Bills….that I can think of.
  17. I am actually shocked to read this. In 29 years of coaching, my experience is that football coaches are the only ones to tell kids to do other sports as well. As far as the ones who do the opposite, I would say it's a dead heat with Basketball and Baseball. In one building I was in a coach that had resigned said the one thing he was proudest of is that he had kids playing basketball 12 months a year. While some baseball coaches help with football or are fans, the ones I have known want their kids to do as much baseball in the Summer as they can. I know kids who play or played about 80 games in a Summer; WAY too many. And while some encourage other sports, they discourage them from football. Some of those baseball coaches actually see the Summer as an extension of the Spring season. I don't. I say it is the start of the next season because the seniors that graduated are no longer on the Summer teams.
