That's not a real rule. Never was. It's "fake news" as they say.

Re: NFL Thread Pt. II

Thank you 'Boys. Also, losing a time out on a challenge which never should have been made is the reason Bruce Ariens is ultimately a loser. He has the largest coaching staff of any team in the league but nobody detailed to red-light / green-light challenge tossing the flag??? The ball was dead, in his possession, there was no heed to rush a decision on whether to challenge, but he threw the flag almost immediately, One look at the replay and you see that the receiver didn't maintain control, which the sideline ref, who could only see his feet, missed. Ariens, in the end, doesn't have all his "T's" crossed and his "I's" dotted and when the pressure is on his eyes get crossed and his brain gets dotty.

Re: NFL Thread Pt. II

You know TBC, I've got a funny feeling this maybe Arians last season. Not because he's not a good Coach, but his health is failing.

Honestly, this loss isn't going to help your Seahawks that much. They've still got a long way to go with a QB that may not survive the season.

How 'bout them Cowboys!

I've been wondering why other teams haven't taken to using slot receivers like Brady has over his career. With the right personnel they are the perfect receivers for moving the chains.

Is it because there are so few that are willing to put their careers at risk running across the middle all the time? Is it because there just aren't that many talented slot receivers?

Honestly, Brady made the slot-receiver a must-have in today's game.

Wes Welker, arguably the best slot-receiver ever, was used exactly the way you mention. He wasn't all that fast, but he could get "separation" in a phone booth.

After they'd played together for a few seasons, it was supposed, they used one brain between them. It was like Brady knew what he was going to do, and vice-versa, Welker knew what Brady wanted him to do.

The two of them pioneered the position back-in-the-day. This has spilled over to every team. The Cowboys have Cole Beasley. He led all Dallas receivers in catches last season.

Welker went on to become Peyton Mannings go-to receiver in Denver. Washington, had Deshaun Jackson (he's since moved on to Tampa Bay from Philly).

I personally think every team has some type of slot-receiver. The position is a mainstay throughout the League.

You know TBC, I started to include McCaffrey, but he was drafted as a RB not a WR.

But I do agree, Teams are beginning to split-out RBs into the slot for the same purpose. Creating a mismatch in coverage.

Wow, Stephan Gilmore looking like a liability so far this season. Two critical hands-to-the-face penalties in another home loss. NE should keep to its basic practice of promoting from within rather than risking big bucks on dubious free agents like Gilmore. (The rest of the defense needs a lot of work, too, though it was good to see Hightower back.)

An unexpected start to the season, but that said, I'm not worried about NE. Still, it keeps me from sticking it to Hodge for the Cowboys loss to the (hmph) Rams.
