23 posts in this topic

Whattup Ravens Nation. I'm chrisbraven, I have been posting for years over at the Baltimore Sun forum. I signed up here a while ago but only recently learned how cool this forum is. I do a blog called "[url="http://4thand29.blogspot.com"][color=#800080][b]4th and 29[/b][/color][/url]" after the great play at San Diego this season and I'd like to invite you to check it out. The most recent post is an illustrated breakdown of THE ANSWER, my name for the 70 yard Bomb Heard 'Round the NFL World. Your feedback is welcomed, there or here. I'll be seeing you around and keeping you up to date with new posts, including "[b]Enemy Scouting Reports[/b]," where I review 2 angles of coaches film on our opponents and come up with power points to beat 'em. Got my hands full this week, obviously.

sorry, forgot the link you gave in the post; Great job, man. Fantastic!

Joe is the money...Caldwell/Joe made Torrey, Jacoby, Boldin, Pitta, Rice, Pierce, Dickson playing like pro-bowl level...

Welcome, great breakdown! Joe was so close to getting hit that play it made me nervous again lol. It was a beautiful job by him by stepping up in the pocket at the perfect time, something we really don't see from him much.

[quote] I show this to demonstrate that Jones' experience as a punt/kick returner is what made this play.[/quote]

I didn't even think of that! Amazing!

Thanks for checking it out, fellas. More to come.

[b]52[/b], R. Lewis really IS the G.O.A.T., according to a Sportsnation Poll:

Thanks, [b]Legacy[/b]. I've already peeped some of your posts around the forum--great stuff.
[/quote]We have the best forum in the league and it only gets better with the addition of educated posters like you. You only make this forum better. I've already bookmarked your blog and look forward to more. That was a revelation at how Jacoby's ST experience gave him the edge on that play.

I think the most overlooked part of this throw is that on the play before, Joe takes off. Oh [i]this [/i]play he has room to take off as well, and could easily get the first down with his legs and more, then spike the ball to stop the clock.

I'm sure that weighed in the defender's minds as they saw him step up in the pocket. And after all - the farther back you play, the more room Joe has to run for yardage.

Yep, but who needs legs when you have a cannon arm?

PS: tuck the ball and run will highly result in fumble, percentage wise. Capernick of 49ers has run well but if he runs into tougher defense, he'll get hit hard and fumble will be easily the outcome....

Great work! As soon as Jacoby caught the ball, I remarked to my wife that it looked as though he was fielding a punt return. Nevertheless, it was a remarkable play at many different levels. In a post-game interview, it prompted Joe to remark that it involved a little luck. In any case, I have really good vibes heading into our showdown with the Patriots this weekend. It would not surprise me to see some more divine intervention. I believe that luck is where preparation meets opportunity and I also believe in miracles. Our team has the synergy it will take to win the AFC Championship,

Welcome to the Flock!! It is the best group of bloggers in the league, notwithstanding the trolls who often skew our polls and frequently post misleading messages.

Welcome aboard BRAVEN! Good to have North Cackalacki represented in The Flock.

When I rewatched Jacoby's catch it scared me the way he used his upper body to cradle the ball.
BUT, TD, and on to OT!

I'll get over to your blog a little later when I get to my PC. Again, Welcome!

Awesome, awesome job. I completely agree with your breakdown. The Broncos thought for a split second that Joe was looking for Pitta who potentially had a bit of space along the sideline.

Also a great job of focusing on Joe's pocket movement. He kept his eyes downfield the entire time while masterfully eluding the pass-rush. Props to Big Mac and Yanda in protection there, while Oher gets another F.

Or end up like RG 3 is right now with major surgery.

Wow, nice work on the blog man - please keep it up. I wish more professional sports sites (E.I. "The World Wide Leader") would spend time doing chalk talk like yours and less time talking about players' girlfriends.

Great analysis. Pretty crazy that three defenders got distracted by Pitta and essentially let Jacoby get behind everyone.

Also very neat point about how Jacoby caught the ball. I didnt even think about how his KR/PR skills played into that.

Very good stuff, man.

I like the Jacoby returner catch part and how you broke down how each player played the ball in the air. Great job, keep posting articles and stuff on here.
