    2011-09-25 in Chicago...

    Not quite a Willie Mays catch since Johnny Knox rotates toward the far goal just before catching the ball but he was all alone and no one noticed. In my video he turns...

    The Bears pulled the same trick against the Packers in 2011 or 2012 and the only thing that made them call back the TD was a massively dumb foul on Packer gunner Jarrett Bush. Hester was used as the...

    In the past he'd throw a sidearm shot off his back leg with a 40% shot of being intercepted. Now he takes a sack. Trust me (we know sacks), it's not the end of the world and you get to keep the ball....

    A few weeks back Mike Tanier wrote this about the Packers (it's still true):



    I was generally hoping that the Panthers would not find a way to get Cam rumbling, bumbling and stumbling for a...

    I laughed out loud imagining what Dave Rappoccio could do with this. His Johnny and LeBron series was quite a bit of fun.

    Maybe. For 8 out of 10 seasons he's been a top 10 QB. We'll have to see how he finishes.



    No one is playing in LA in the next 24 months unless they take a bite from the crap sandwich and play...

    Roster awards

    I'd wanted to create create two roster awards last year but other things got in the way and I never became well enough organized to do so. Not so this year and so I'd like to solicit...

    Roster musings

    Just somewhere for me to dump things I notice or am thinking about while flailing away in roster mania.

    That would have been my response, beat me to it. Also don't discount the Norv factor.

    Re-thinking things...

    The pre-season Giants whose offense couldn't score on a field without defenders somehow went undefeated during August. I discounted that effect but am re-considering things....

    The Packers second home game went a lot better than the first one against the Jets. 3 and 2, moving on to get ready to head to Miami.

    And hey, it's my first win in TNF Pick 'Em this season. I've...

    The current rushing stats are skewed by all the big running plays. And where did those come from? Up the middle, where a loss of Raji and periodic switch to a 4/3 look may be making things worse. And...

    Nice piece on ECU, thanks for calling it out.

    The offense for some years now has been a high performance engine, which at times can be cranky and then it's a chore just to get it started.

    I tried that out too. I'll pass even though I really enjoyed the actress in the first season and a half of Smash. Made up airports (we have enough real ones). Going from mid town to the west side and...

    I'd be ATD on:

    Buffalo (Vegas and DVOA agree, plus cross country early game).
    Baltimore (I gave it 1 confidence point, no ringing endorsement).

    Just remember Patrick, it could be worse. ;)

    I'll pipe up as one of the group edging toward 60 and say that I find DVOA a very useful metric. If ESPN would ever spit out the exact
