Talk amongst yourselves
I hate to say something nice about Gruden, but he hit the nail on the head when he said this game could turn on special teams, kick return for a TD, and a punt block, and now things look different.
And now a blocked FG returned for a TD, just to make it a blowout.
I'm going to throw up, if Woodhead keeps playing well. That Gruden-crew can really make me hate a guy like Woodhead, who's story is actually pretty feel-good.
What a Dolphin train-wreck. Chung with a punt ANd a FG block, adding to the KO return TD for the trifecta.
Kyle Arrington had the return, I believe.
The kickoff return was Brandon Tate. Chung had the blocked FG return.
Arrington had the block on that play, I think.
Sorry, I misread the first comment to indicate that Chung returned the blocked FG - I intended to point out that Arrington had the return on FG, Chung had the block.
Someone should lose his job for that disaster.
I wonder what the Special Teams VOA is in this game.
Get out of my brain!
Looking forward to the special teams scores from tonight's game. That's clearly the biggest difference in tonight's game.
The way I think special teams scores works, NE won't have a very high score, but MIA might set a negative record. Everyone's been saying the NE special teams won this game, but I think MIA special teams lost. I think blocked kicks and punts are caused by the kicking team, and don't reflect special skill on the part of the defenders. It will also be interesting to see what the model says about one kickoff return for a touchdown, one dropped punt (later recovered by the returning team), and a bunch of ordinary returns.
Patrick Chung with one of the most impressive games ever.
So can we call him Chung the Unavoidable?
Chung is King!
Sitting around here wondering if a week5 thread will open before the games kick off...
