    Damnit, wanted the whole group for one last run and then they all retire.

    So in theory every team that is down big in the 4th quarter should try the 4th and 15 over and over, correct? It has to succeed far more often than the new onside kick which I think was around 0% in situations when teams were expecting it. And, as was mentioned, what happens in the situations that were discussed like PI or the team scored a TD or an offsides. Then what? If PI it automatic success then folks like Jumpball Joe just got a lot more valuable as “onside 4th and 15 specialists”. What crap. Somewhere Pats67 is having a cow.

    Giardi with the first cunty I knew but didn’t say tweet. Predicable. Saying Gronk has had a TV deal in place for a while.

    Not sure why I find it funny but I think it would be hilarious for UCF to win this instead of the BCS.

    Yeah, I wasn’t upset at him in any way, just wanted to know this would be the last year I had to care about the NFL.

    Tacho has a lot of raw talent but needs to learn how to defend better. He seems very stiff.

    He’s 7’6” so I expect his movement to be mostly terrible.  Still miles better than what I remember with Manute Bol.

    Tragic his career will be so short but great for him to go out on top. There will never be another like him.

    One of the most entertaining athletes I’ve ever watched. Good for him getting out while still sort of in one piece. Over the last few years every time I saw a DB dive at his knees I’d just hold my breath and hope he’d get up okay. He owes none of us anything. Plus it leaves open the chance for him to un-retire just before the playoffs for one more run and then the NFL having to put yet another new rule in next year to prevent that sort of thing.

    Ainge just sent Gronk a nice check for taking the attention off his team for a few days.

    Can’t believe Gronk didn’t retire yesterday – 3/23.  3X23 = 69.

    Interestingly Michael Bennett’s best buddy and new coach Greg Schiano had the 4th and 15 idea 7 years ago:

    According to FO 4th and 15 is successful less often than the old onside kick was.  It’ll be interesting to see just how aggressive teams get with it bc I think given an offseason to prepare this is the kind of thing good coaches could really exploit.
