Not sure if this is a credible source but wouldn’t surprise me if it was closed.
Makes sense to get rid of it. It's not a "satisfying" strategy, just feels weird to see it in practice. I think the simplest way to fix it is give the other team a choice, not only to accept or decline the penalty as usual, but also do you want the clock to stop or keep running. If need be, add a time constraint (only give them this choice in the last half of the 2nd or 4th quarter, etc). That way you don't have to guess whether the clock running/stopping would benefit the team committing the penalty or not, you let the opposing coach decide.
Bill used it in a game when he didn't need it so he sort of got what he deserved.
Finally a rules change based on logic & reason instead of nonsense & emotion.
I didn’t even like it when Bill used it. It feels like a soft lock on the game that has nothing to do with skill
I think there was only one team in the league that Bill would pull that stunt against and we saw it.
I did not really have a problem with it. Cannot be used in final 2 minutes of first half or last 5 minutes of game as clock automatically stops on a penalty anyways. Allowing teams the option to stop the clock in the 4th quarter if they want is probably enough to deal with it.
Cant wait to see which loophole the 3D chess master exploits this coming season
Vrabel is turning out to be a very good HC.
This was the the effective way to get the rule changed. BB could have talked until he was blue in the face and it wouldn't have made 10% of the impact of actually using this in a game - even in a game where it was totally irrelevant.
He's a smart coach.
I think the smart thing would have been to keep it to himself and/or save it for a time when you could use it to your tactical advantage in a more meaningful situation.
Instead he taught the rest of the league about the loophole in a meaningless moment of a blowout so it could be used against him later in a key moment of a playoff game.
as long as he can keep Tannehill from throwing for more than 100 yards in a game, he'll do great
That's a partially accurate comment. Bill didn't intentionally do it.
He was trying to take a 5 yard penalty for a better punting position. The other coach declined the penalty, so Bill had the ST commit another penalty to get those extra 5 yards again.
The clock kept running to which Bill in the post game press conference even said it was a weird loophole that would probably get corrected in the next season.
Correct, he wasn't exploiting it for gain.
Tannehill lit up fantasy football last season.
70% completion rate
he was right there with gardner minshew........he sucked.......wake up
Lay off the narcotics.
10th ranked QB in 2019. 2019 NFL QUARTERBACK RATINGS | Football Outsiders
anyone who thinks he's a top 10 FF QB is an idiot
and they sure as hell didn't get to the AFCC because of him
Never said that Tanny was top 10 FF. He was not ranked with Minshew as the ignoramuses claim.
Wrong as usual on how much Tanny contributed to the Titans winning last season. You never watched a game clownshoes. Ryan Tannehill is a win away from the Super Bowl because the Titans built a team
