3 great games so far. Boring Baltimore sorting out the sorry throw it away Titans. Kurt 'NFL Europe' stinging the fancied Panthers. EAGLES!! the wild card embarrassing the number one seed, for the second time in two days.

Please let there be a San Diego Arizona final.

Sod the super bowl - the NFL has been running for longer than a match up between the NFL and AFL - We have won 3 NFL titles (1948, 1949 and 1960) We are the only team to beat Green Bay under Lombardi in the play-offs (NFL Championship game in 1960) and the Cowboy's were only formed in 1960 ;) Oh the history!!!!:p

That was a return.

Had everything, including the kill of the Photographer which is key to the return.

Latvian Eagle 11-01-2009 11:31 PM

Weird play I've seen this season... Ben Roethlisberger taking the snap to punt! :o

pauldrulez 11-01-2009 11:33 PM

Quick Kick.

Not as Good as Cassel who lead the Regular Season in Punting Average.

One Punt, in the wind vs. Buffalo. Travelled 57 yards to the Buffalo one where it was downed by Welker.

Except the Steelers done it on 4th down and the Pats done it on 3rd down.

Two years ago the Sabres punted on 3rd down twice in two drives.

The only two times I've ever shotgun snapped. Brilliant stuff!


Elway always used to do it.

pauldrulez 11-01-2009 11:50 PM

Its a good tactic on 3rd down in the wind as snaps can go wrong.

Steelers try a fake Punt. Oh dear.

Latvian Eagle 12-01-2009 12:23 AM

But the way what does "out of the shotgun" actually mean.

I've been trying to figure it out for ages now.

Shotgun is where the QB is a few yards behind the center... not right underneath him.

(Apologies to Orlovsky, but it wouldn't have been as funny. He nearly ran out of the stadium.)

Seeing the replays on SC last night... it was very clear he was inbounds.

pauldrulez 12-01-2009 12:35 AM

Not being under Center.

You are standing back for the snap. Not up the center's arse.

pauldrulez 12-01-2009 12:42 AM

Sproles must be gutted after that.

All that effort and they get intercepted.

pauldrulez 12-01-2009 12:43 AM

Ooh, challenge.

I can see that being overturned after one replay.

Glad someone who saw a replay could clear that up for us. :p

Here's a thought - I reckon next week the number six seed in the NFC will be a favourite on the road in the NFC Championship game. That must be a first. Think the line probably starts at about 3.5 to 4 points in Philly's favour.

Strathclyde Eagle 12-01-2009 01:02 AM

Thought he was in there if I'm honest. Would be interested to see an angle from the other side.

jlmatthews 12-01-2009 01:12 AM

:hi: Chargers

:)

elliott 12-01-2009 01:21 AM

A QB can either be "under Center", or in the shotgun. This is 7 yards backs, and required the center to throw the ball to him.

Also, some teams are starting to use a pistol formation, which is 3 yards deep, with a loneback behind the QB.

My wife was telling me about a scandal in Florida a few years back involving 2Panthers cheerleaders being discovered in a somewhat compromising situation in a ladies' room.....

Anyways, looking forward to the game in a little while & hoping the Panthers can repeat the job they did earlier in the season.

Sod those accumulator bets.
