  1. Right, I knew that. But the opening you create by keeping Zach at RT is at RG. So I was just curious what your plan/preference was. EDIT: I also don’t have a problem with moving CW to the bench.
  2. Lololol You mean the undrafted rookie who barely held up in his first 2 starts might not be good enough with severe food poisoning?
  3. Connor McGovern must really be a bad football player. On the flipside, I am really pumped for Tyler Biadasz. 4th round rookie came out with a pancake on his first snap yesterday and was making the line calls. Starting center might be his job for good.
  4. Do you mean RG? Or are you shifting CW to the bench or RG in this scenario?
  5. Maybe... but he’s been working as a safety. I doubt they’d rely on him for meaningful defensive snaps at CB.
  6. Does Diggs count as healthy? Haha I know this is facetious, but I’m guessing it’ll be Diggs, Lewis, and Worley all day. #4 is probably... Brandon Carr?
  7. There’s a lot of players who ended up not living up to expectations. But the ones that make the fan base really fall in love, but only to have the fan base eventually really dislike them.
  8. I don’t think any of those players ever vet inspired that amount of love.
  9. This one will be interesting to track. He’s been pretty mediocre since his rookie season, but this hasn’t engendered the same feelings of disdain as I’m starting to feel towards Jaylon. Probably because I fell hook, line, and sinker for Jaylon’s story of redemption/work ethic/inspiration/leadership that, at this point, seems like a total con job, and LVE’s injury issues don’t make him feel quite as much like a bait & switch.
  10. I was thinking the other day about how much I loved Jaylon Smith just 1 year ago, and have been trying to think of players that fell off the fan cliff in a similar way. Roy Williams (safety) and Julius Jones are the only two that came to mind.
  11. This is a more complicated question. There can be legitimate variability in your chances of winning in overtime. It's not necessarily accurate to say you have a 50/50 shot. Like, if you were a heavy favorite going into the game, are the home team, and haven't suffered any major injuries, I would guess you have a better than 55% chance of winning the game in OT. Also, I don't think there is a lot of data to show that you actually have a 55% of converting a 2 point attempt. That said, if you calculate that your chances of winning in OT are lower than the chances of converting the 2-point attempt, going for it is an easy choice. But as a decision maker, you need to make sure that you are honest with yourself about what the real percentages are.
  12. I think this is fair. Philosophically speaking, it's going to be a rare occurrence where an NFL coach is willing to go for it on a 4th down and I disagree with it. In my opinion, the NFL is *way* too conservative on this. So, honestly, I hope McCarthy is like Doug Pederson. I realize I'm not going to convince you on this. But just like in my blackjack analogy, you can lose making the right decision and win making the wrong one. But at the end of the day, the only reason you can/should be mad at yourself is if you don't maximize your chances to be successful. And there is a ton of reason to believe that expected value of going for it on 4th down (and short) is greater than the EV of kicking. And had we waited until the 2nd TD to go for 2, we very well could be 0-2. Again, making the right decision is not about guaranteeing success, it is about maximizing your potential for success.
  13. Mostly indifferent is probably the right attitude on this one. The win probability change is a fraction of a %, probably. I've just gotten riled up because people are so passionately arguing against the side with that slightly higher win probability 🤣 I also very much agree with you on the play call.
