  1. NFL rules do not reference "lateral" anywhere in the body with respect to field of play. The only time lateral is used in NFL rules is with reference to where teams can move laterally on the sidelines. The clear definition of a forward pass as described above. What jaborony is describing as a sideways lateral is NOT a forward pass; it is not moving forward or to a point near the opponent's goal line: "It is a forward pass if: the ball initially moves forward (to a point nearer the opponent’s goal line) after leaving the passer’s hand(s) the ball first strikes the ground, a
  2. I don't have any other videos. The ball first touches his hand behind the 3 yard line when you go by frame, which speaks to the direction in which the ball left Mahomes hand. The definition of forward pass doesn't default to where Kelce gained full possession, but the direction in which the ball was traveling.
  3. Every view I have, the ball left Mahomes hand in front of the 3 yard line, and first was touched by Kelce behind the 3 yard line. By definition, not a forward pass. Review relative to Mahomes' back foot and where the ball was positioned on his body as was delivered.... Not sure how say 100% a pass, and clearly wasn't backwards??
  4. Section 1, Article 1 SECTION 1 - FORWARD PASS ARTICLE 1. DEFINITION It is a forward pass if: the ball initially moves forward (to a point nearer the opponent’s goal line) after leaving the passer’s hand(s) the ball first strikes the ground, a player, an official, or anything else at a point that is nearer the opponent’s goal line than the point at which the ball leaves the passer’s hand(s). https://operations.nfl.com/the-rules/nfl-video-rulebook/forward-pass/
  5. https://www.insider.com/video-patrick-mahomes-chest-pass-andy-reid-saints-2020-12 From the time it left Mahomes hand to first contact to Kelce's hand, did the ball advance forward making it a forward pass as it was ruled? My son has done some cool things on his iPad and trying to apply geometry from stationary points. I really don't think the ball advanced forward, and that it was a rushing TD by Kelce! Has anyone else seen anything on this?
  6. This was corrected, it looks like Chargers & Rams were somehow intertwined this week. One other glaring error requiring adjustment is Chase Daniel who is projected for a PERFECT 29 of 29 passing. In a league where completions / incompletions count, this throws off customized rankings dramatically, and flows downhill to Matchup Dominator for projected scores with best lineups, etc....
  7. I believe there is an error in the Chargers defense projection for Week 15 which is likewise affecting ROS rankings. They are projected to give up 14 points this week in the Vegas/Chargers games (o/u 54.5, Chargers +3). The line is projecting more like 30 points allowed this weekend. Don't want some racing to get the Chargers defense based upon projections alone...
  8. Some questions I'm thinking through as head into the most important weeks of the season for lineup selections and future roster choices: QB 1. Mitch Trubisky has a history of success against Detroit. Will he play well enough this week to hold the job for duration of 2020 and as final audition for 2021 (for the Bears or someone else)? 2. Can Colt McCoy push the ball down the field against Seahawks defense in Week 13 to have value in leagues that start 2 QB's? 3. Home / Road splits not as dramatic in 2020. We watched Mike Glennon & Brandon Allen at home last week. This we
  9. Interesting article from September: https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/09/03/no-quarantine-quarterback-for-broncos/ Coach Vic Fangio told reporters on Thursday that Denver won’t have a so-called quarantine quarterback. “I don’t think it’s necessary to be honest with you,” Fangio said. ... Here’s the thing. It’s not an issue until it is. And then it’s a huge issue, if the team has no quarterbacks. But that’s a calculated risk the Broncos will be taking. And it’s one of the reasons why teams shouldn’t get a dispensation from the Commissioner and his outside advi
  10. Trubisky practices today, and Foles sits. Nagy praises Trubisky in Zoom meeting. Tea leaves? https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/11/25/nick-foles-doesnt-practice-mitchell-trubisky-listed-as-full-participant/
  11. This is even more of a burning question now with Bernard missing practice due to a concussion: https://twitter.com/Ben_Baby/status/1331710761979310080
  12. Reported that David Montgomery returned to practice on Monday: https://bearswire.usatoday.com/2020/11/23/bears-rb-david-montgomery-returns-to-practice-monday/
  13. Barry Jackson of Miami Herald noting Gaskin faring well in recovery, but no update on whether he will be activated from IR as of yesterday: https://www.cbssports.com/fantasy/football/news/dolphins-myles-gaskin-faring-well-in-recovery/
  14. Update in Chicago where local reporters believe Trubisky; Rapoport reporting up in the air: https://www.bleachernation.com/bears/2020/11/25/the-first-indication-that-mitchell-trubisky-is-starting-on-sunday-night/ ESPN earlier reported Mike Glennon getting start in Jacksonville: https://twitter.com/ESPNdirocco/status/1331599539615240194
  15. Can further expand on Question 3, with Mike Garafolo sharing that Brandon Allen starting over Ryan Finley in Cincinnati: https://twitter.com/MikeGarafolo/status/1331583483974705156?ref_src=twsrc^google|twcamp^serp|twgr^tweet
