It's not something I track. I assume a WR is going to try to get his hands on anything around him, so that's not a play that's out of the ordinary.

It's mentioned in the text below. It's supposedly an old-timey approach now, and this was not a double, it was just a single block.

I actually believe that this is true, for this game, minus THROW IT TO FUNCHESS FERGODSAKES
|1 week 3 days ago||The scale there is different||
The scale there is different since I only give 2 points for the whole line on a protection, three if they pick up a blitz or the protection is for a really long time. On run plays I'm generally trying to make a 3 or 4 yard run add up to 0, a 5 or 6 yard run +1, and so forth and so on; I deviate from that based on luck or good play from an opponent that I don't expect, etc., but in general if there's a TFL and one guy made it a TFL he is going to get a big negative, because I want that overall play score to make sense. This can cause some issues with consistency but I prefer it since it keeps me in a reasonable range. (It breaks down on long plays; if I wanted to be truly representative a 50 yard pass would featuer some huge minuses, but that seems way distorting.)
On the Mags protection minuses I'm not sure what one of them was but the one before the Gardner TO I only made a -1 because he stayed connected and pushed his man past the QB. Generally it's a -1 for something that hampers a play and -2 for blowing one up; often two guys will split a -2 if they miss a stunt or a blitz pickup.

That is correct. As always take things in context. Magnuson had the toughest matchup by some distance.

Sam is not in the same boat. Sam is more connected than anyone.

Hinton is great, and he interviewed me for the piece. I was happy with how much of it came through; often in these pieces you talk to a guy for a while and there's one sentence that doesn't represent what you say.

I mentioned this in the post: RPS doesn't really cover "this is a bad matchup repeatedly exposed." It is more about specific playcalls against specific plays. I agree with you.

I'll look into it. Audacity apparently doesn't support that natively. To be clear, the rest of the ID3 tags do show up, right?

I don't tend to say things that are not in question. This also came up when I failed to say rape is bad when the Gibbons stuff came up.

Actually, Marlin was accused of doing something bad by a guy who made it all up and won a defamation suit against him.
Very different situation.

The last few have been, because I really like what they did with the WRs in this class. I was less enthused about the LB/DL and there's another iffy one coming.

the argument is "I pay a thousand dollars a year so I should be treated better."
|5 weeks 5 days ago||You realize that on almost||
You realize that on almost every UFR and Picture Pages last year you were saying I was wrong and that nothing was really Borges's fault, to the point where I was directly responding to you on the front page, right?
And after the season they fired Borges after Michigan finished last in the country in TFL allowed. Darrell Funk is still here. You spent the entire year defending the guy who got fired! Who former NFL DEs are mocking by way of trying to evaluate Taylor Lewan! I took so much shit from you last year and you were just so, so wrong.
And now you're in this thread, chiding me for being upset that my season hockey ticket now doesn't have an MSU game that I already paid for, as if that shouldn't make me mad. It doesn't matter how reasonable you are when you make your assertions: those assertions are insulting.
But they just keep coming, and now they come paired with martyrdom. I'm not going to ban you, but good god man. Please see it from my perspective since you're so good at seeing it from everyone else's.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Most Chicago residents will||
Most Chicago residents will not be excited. When they did this in Cleveland the stadium was mostly empty. This will be mostly empty. Even if they are, "excitement" in Chicago is not translatable to anything that affects Michigan hockey. Vague, short-lived good feelings 300 miles away from the arena are not useful assets.
And the "granted" section is ridiculous. That is a big deal. Intentionally screwing your customers is a *much* bigger mistake than you are making it out to be.

He's excellent at "respectfully disagreeing' with everything I've ever posted, to the point where it is obviously not respectful. All he ever does is complain.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I pay Dave Brandon a thousand||
I pay Dave Brandon a thousand dollars a year for two hockey tickets. If he wants to piss me and everyone else who does the same off so he can have an outdoor game in front of a half-empty stadium with zero people in it who will ever buy a season ticket without moving, that is a terrible business decision.
Doing it *after* everyone renewed their tickets with the promise of 15% off is one step beyond that.
You are constantly trying to see the other POV even when that POV is incredibly hard to justify. That makes it seem like you are disagreeing just to disagree. This is a slap in the face to hockey season ticket holders in exchange for almost no long-term value.
Can you agree with that? Is it possible for you to agree with that premise?
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Surprise! You disagree with||
Surprise! You disagree with me at length, and agree with whoever is making nonsense decisions.
It is fucking bullshit as a hockey season ticket holder. If M wants to prioritize fans 300 miles away from their hockey program's struggling attendance that is a choice they can obviously make. But it will make everyone who bought a season ticket livid.
You don't get the outrage about anything. We get it. You didn't get the outrage about Borges. You probably still don't. And that's fine. But maybe it's time to look at yourself as the problem there. I think you have Yes Man disease.

I agree. I don't think the "ones" on the OL even mean that much when half the projected starters are on the twos. Both units are probably equal and the coaches are experimenting with people at various positions before deciding who their best five are.

I follow MLS vaguely. The power rankings were just a thing AOL told me to do. It's tough because I have no rooting interests and the soccer isn't always great.
