  • Also , why is no one talking about BB taking time out with 4 seconds to go before the 2 minute warning in the superb owl ?
    I just thought it was odd.

    Great point. Sam Gould from Fieldgulls definitely criticized that in his video about how the Eagles offense dismantled the Pats D. He also criticized Pederson for not trying a pass after Belichick took the TO. There would be no risk of wasting the 2 minute warning, I think it might have been 2:03 so Foles could've sat back there a few seconds and taken the clock down to the 2 min anyway and ice the game if they got a first down.

    Lets say 5 seconds run off the clock for each play. The defense has 1 TO, 1st down has just finished, the clock is running and there is 2:04 left in the game.

    Scenario 1
    Defense takes timeout - 2:04 on clock, 2nd down
    Offense runs ball, 1:59, 3rd down clock stops for 2 min warning


    Scenario 2
    Defense lets clock run to 2 min warning, 2nd down
    Offense runs ball, at 1:55 defense calls timeout, 3rd down

    Better to take timeout immediately

    “We come in on Monday morning and start watching the tape,” Zimmer said, “And you say, ‘Oh that’s what they were doing.’ Now, you wouldn’t. So I can do this at six minutes in the first quarter and say, ‘Oh here this is what they’re doing. Here’s how they blocked this.’ And I can coach my guys on what’s happening. Whereas in the past, you have to rely on your skills to figure it out.

    “It takes coaching and all of the things out of this when you go and sit there and watch it. Anyone can do that. I can bring [anyone] in there [to watch video] and say, ‘The left guard is pulling, and they’re blocking down in a combination down on the linebacker.’ Anyone can figure that out [with video]. But that’s what we’re supposed to do as coaches.”


    What is it about technology that emasculates middle aged coaches?
