Miracle in San Diego

23 posts in this topic

Hey guys, as some of you know, I'm from France and don't have access to US channels, so I started to buy the nfl gamepass last year and wanted to share with you all the "coach film" section of the gamepass on our miraculous play of this week for those who couldn't see it well or just saw it one time.

As you can see, there are 3 wrs lined up + Pitta in a two points position all going for streaks except Pitta who's going for a deep crossing route.

As Rice catches the football, there are 6 defenders potentially able to make the play before he reaches the mark.

As Ray reaches the 50 he decides to cut back to the other side. No other options (smart)

After the cut, looks like the 5 defenders in red are loosing their balance and are going to miss him, the only potential tackler suddenly becomes free safety Eric Weddle in blue.

At this point, looks like Eric Weddle took a great angle and that Cason in closing the outside which is going to stop us a couple of yards short. But here comes Q.

Weddle taken out, Cason now has to re attack inside to make a play, but it will the linebacker first on Rice. Torrey is waiting on his coffee up there. :-)

On this angle, we can see that Boldin's block actually took away two chargers defenders

Great post! Thank you.

" Torrey is waiting on his coffee up there." Haha. Good stuff. Torrey even admitted he didn't block anyone when interviewed.

Excellent post. Nice to see pictures as the play progresses.

It still looks to me, that if Jacoby was able to lay a block on #20, and Rice cut further to the outside, he likely would have been able to got for a touchdown.

Of course, whether or not Jacoby would have been able to perform a legal block (or even whether he was actually in a position to block) is up in the air, and hard to tell.

It really was a hell of a block by Q!! Talk about heads up... Without it, no first down and that's the rap with only 1 TO remaining.

But here's a question.... I thought once they move the chains, the play can't be reviewed, because the have to go back and reset. I don't ever remember this happening in my 18 years of watching football. It ended up being a mood point, but what if they didn't get the chains right and ended up not giving the first down? We wouldn't have been able to review it a second time.

If they didn't get the chains right and we didn't convert, the game would be over. It was within 2 minutes, so there's no possible coach's challenge and the booth won't review the same play 2 times.

Welcome! Great Post! Hopefully Torry will step up his blocking.

LMAO...he had no choice but to admit during the post game press conference he was hanging out. Jacoby was whistlin' too.

Thank you, everyone, for the warm answers. I usually watch multiple plays with these angles, especially plays when Joe takes time to throw and take a sack, it's usually because the Wrs are covered so I don't blame him. And some other big plays as well.

Why is it that Jacoby seems to be Wide Open? Rice is more reliable though, but we would have won if we threw it to Jacoby and we caught it.

Opposite side of the field and would have required a 45 yard throw across his body. Would have been a horrible decision to throw the ball to JJ there.

LMAO @ Tirrey and coffee. The guy has speed but as far as strength he is not the guy you want in a battle thats for sure. I have made the remark a few times that he is not good in a physical situation. Press coverage, forget it, blocking, forget it. He is our deep guy but less then useless at the point of attack to help block and that is why i would hope that Boldin does get re-signed, he is a BEAST and will do what ever it takes to win.
