Roddy Is Getting Old And Slow

985 posts in this topic

Roddy is still better than half the #2 WR out there!

He used to be. After last season, half is debatable but it's ok, everyone ages.

Even if he was held, he wasn't 5 yards beyond the LOS, so that doesn't matter.

You aren't allowed to hold at or after 5 yards...

The play started on the 10.5 yard line. bowman initiates contact at the 5, continues to make contact the entire play (while the ball is in the air and everything)...

I'm not a math major, but I'm pretty sure that contact is initiated at/or after 5 yards. Would this be correct?

The play started on the 10 (actually beyond the 10 slightly (see video below). Could have gone either way, but I think the correct call was made. AND, he landed about a yard before the first down marker - even with forward progress, he would probably have been a half yard short of the first down marker.

White is lined up behind the line of scrimmage in that pic.

The ball is at the 10...he's lined up at the 10.5.

Big difference.

No. The ball is at the 10.5. Roddy is at the 11...

Eh so the ball is on the 10. Roddy is on the 11 (not that it matters)

But the contact is still at 5 yards and after the ball is in the air...

You were right about the ball placement yes

You see, unlike most here (especially Saints fans)

I can admit my errors...
