  • Matt Moore at QB for Miami. Ravens 3 point favorites, seems about right, even though Miami looks a little better on paper with being 4-2

    Agree the 3 points sounds right, but I like the Dolphins straight up.

    Matt Moore is an underrated backup. He has a rating of over 100 each of the last 3 seasons, a positive career TD-Int ratio (+11), and is 15-13 as a starter. Would I want him to start for my team? No, but that's the definition of a backup, and he’s one of the best. As John Clayton has stated on many occasions, a good backup will come off the bench and win you 3 straight games, but then lose you the next 3. That is Matt Moore to a t.

  • I think the Ravens' color rush uniforms might be an improvement on their normal ones.

  • Flacco is a goner. That was brutal. I'd expect Moore to get murdered shortly.

  • Sucks being a defensive player anymore. Literally cannot hit/tackle anyone anymore. Wanna protect the QB? Slide early.

    Sorry, that was a dirty hit. Flacco was sliding.

  • Matt Moore, too short. :p

    Baltimore is where old Seahawks RBs go to excel. ;) And probably where ACFan is now.

    Matt Moore is 6'3". Are you thinking of Kellen Moore? He's listed at 6' even, but the rumor is that he's closer to 5'11".

  • Take a closer look, he's not even feet first. Flacco wanted the first down and to be protected. You can't have it both ways.

    Russ starts sliding yards before the defender.

    At slow speed it looks bad, but this game is not played in slow motion. You want protection, Qb's need to not get greedy

  • Yeah, I'm not sure how dirty that was, he was coming in what appeared to be full speed and Flacco tried to slide LATE.

    Agreed. Was it a penalty per the current rules? Yes. Was it dirty? No, Flacco has to own his part of getting a bit too greedy for yards and paying the price.

  • That was not a slide. That was reactionary attempt at getting into a fetal position after realizing (too late) that you're gonna get hit. You don't get to be a ball carrier then decide at the last split second that you're "sliding" and should be protected.

    Personally, I think they should get rid of the whole slide rule. It leaves QBs in a vulnerable position.

  • The slide wasn't that late, that defender could have let up when he realized the slide was happening. But he took the opportunity to blast Flacco in the side of the head.

    It's football, and its not my QB, so I don't care that much. But that Kiko guy knew what he was doing.

    It made the game more entertaining, and then it led to the complete meltdown later with Suh and the eye poker guy, lol. So all in all some entertaining football. :lol:

    If it wasn't dirty, Alonso sure didn't seem to show an ounce of remorse about nearly killing someone. He knew exactly what the hell he was doing. He tracked Flacco's helmet the whole way and turned his shoulder to line it up. If he didn't think Flacco was going to slide, he would have attempted to wrap up instead of driving downward with his arms pulled in.

    The fact is, when Flacco started sliding, if Alonso didn’t have time to react, his shoulder wouldn't have made contact with Flacco's head. He aimed down as Flacco slid. If he didn't have time, he would have gone over Flacco instead slamming into him.

  • QBs know defenders want to put a good lick on 'em. Don't wait so long to slide.

    I'd liken it to "You mess with the bull, you get the horns."

    I didnt watch the game but Russ has been hit just as bad with NO flag while sliding before maybe not at that angle but he has def taken a few shots with no call

  • I don't think it was that dirty of a hit, but Alonso should have pulled up when Flacco started going down. It's a bang-bang play at full speed, but he continues to drive down with his shoulder/head, rather than show any type of restraint.

    It was a bad move by Flacco, sliding late and putting his head on a tee like that. Unfortunately when the defender doesn't let up at all and makes contact with the head that's gonna be a 15 yard penalty every time. I just feel bad for Joe the person. Dude was hailing a cab/asking for his check on the moon it looked like.
