I actually felt bad for him, a Dallas Cowboy. Only because he was a former STL Cardinal and a good guy.

/Well, I felt bad for Landry after what they did to him, too. Farking Cowboys.

I can't imagine how long that must've stung. Can you imagine if Tony Gonzalez got into the Super Bowl and dropped a touchdown pass? Yeah.

As tragic as the story was, I would say Welker's drop vs the Giants (the electic boogaloo installment) was worse.  There was plenty of time left in this game while a Welker catch would in all likelihood have sealed the deal for the Pats in the 4th quarter.

I agree. Also in looking at this play for the first time, that wasn't a very good pass either.

Brady could have been more accurate.  welker was damn near fully extended.  pass could have been delivered better.  as i recall welker had to kind of shift momentum ( the ball was behind him, from memory?) and barely missed it.  i'd say that was 70% Brady, 30% Welker.

How can such a good player take so long to make it to the Super Bowl?

No tight end in the history of pro football has caught more passes (483) or gained more yards on receptions (7,956) than Jackie Smith. But in his 15 seasons with the Cards, he never made it to the pinnacle of his profession.

Nevermind.

Jackie Smith did it in the pre-Air Coryell/Fouts-to-Winslow era, which evolved into the modern passing game. Pre-Coryell tight ends were expected to block, block, block, block, block, catch a pass on a broken play, and block.

/It's total bullshiat that Coryell isn't in Canton.

I suppose more what I was going for was that this drop happened in the 3rd quarter when the game was still up in the air while the Welker drop would have iced the game.  I am sure there were some other pretty big drops that could be offered up as well, I just don't see a drop in the thrid quarter on a drive that still resulted in points as the worst drop in Super Bowl History.  I still feel bad for the guy since that is probably the iconic moment of that game, but even if he does make the catch there is no assurance the Cowboys win the game.

I agree the pass wasn't great but Welker usually makes those catches and did get both hands on the ball (I bet if Brady could throw AND catch the ball it would have been completed).  70/30 sounds like a good split of the blame since Welker was quite open and Brady had little to no pressure in his face, but not everyone can have the cool steely resolve of David Tyree.

yeah, good point.  hard to say a 3rd quarter play is THE PLAY THAT SEALED EVERYTHING.  it is an awkward analogy, but, like how the Cubs blame Bartman when that play happened in what, the 6th inning and oh by the way, the Cubs had a chance to win Game 7.  but let's all focus on That One Play.

i will never forget the shot of Junior Seau and.....Vrabel?  Whomever it was, Seau and a Patriot or two huckin' and buckin' on the sidelines of Giants/Pats 1, thinking they had it wrapped up.  i was like, "guys, the Football Gods can see you...."

Yeah, the Football gods just seem to be srewing with the Pats ever since the whole Spygate scandal blew up.  I remember in the second Giants/Pats Superb Owl Belichick said something to the effect of "Make them throw it to Manningham."  Then Eli lofts a gorgeous deep pass to Manningham down the sideline and the Pats burn a timeout on a failed challenge.  At least that series ended with the funniest touchdown in Super Bowl history.

If you read TFA as far as that, you should have read this bit at the very top of the story:

Originally published as "Smith hates for it to end like this" in the Jan. 22, 1979, edition of the Miami News.

So, someone beat those numbers more than a quarter-century after the article was written (not even taking into account the changes in the game such as better conditioning, longer seasons, adoption of pass-oriented offenses, etc.), and that makes the article laughable?

Is that really what you're saying?

It's a reprint of an article from when it happened, so yeah.

It's good to know that reporters then were as stupid as they are now. "Why did you drop that pass?" "Because I'm really still a Cardinal and I hate the Cowboys, of course."

Yes, but it was BRADY throwing it, so the media narrative is Welker sucked.  If he were a bigger guy or had better anticipation, then it would have been a catch.  But the ball was badly thrown and most WRs in that position would have struggled mightily to haul it in.
 
2014-01-31 12:34:42 PM
I remember the call for that game and they just said "Smith drops the ball".  I was rooting for the Pittsburgh but even I felt bad for the guy since I also liked the Cardinals since they played against the Cowboys and well basically sucked.

and sherman, dude, although you may be right about Peyton's arm strength, SHUT YOUR PIEHOLE.  You looked like a fool, then you showed a measure of contrition, then you had to go bust out the 'ducks' comment.  You look petulant and childish.  if you lose -- once again, I have SEA by 7-8 -- you, not Pete Carroll or Russell, will be the one person, the one guy, everyone wants.

He said that in a column over a month ago...while heaping praise on Manning. ESPN truncated the quote because Sherman wasn't talking sh*t this week. ESPN completely fabricated that whole thing.

As a lifelong Steelers fan who grew up in the 70s, I can say that I never hated the Cowboys.  I hated to play them, but I respected the heck out of them.  Staubach was as classy as it gets.  It's really difficult to root against a guy like that.

IIRC, the rest of the quote is about how those "ducks" are accurate and timely. Essentially, he was saying what everyone else knows about Manning - the arm strength is diminished, but he's as dangerous as he ever was because of how smart he is in the pocket and how well he works the timing routes and the accuracy of his throws.
 
2014-01-31 01:02:44 PM
I guess opinions vary. Not the greatest throw, but certainly catchable. If it is catchable, Welker needs to make that catch

yes, that's what he said.  to my point above, not knowing he said this a motnh ago.....I still think his hamfisted attempt to praise Manning -- in the context in which I read it, meaning, "he just said this 2-4 days before the super bowl" - was the wrong thing to say this close to gametime.

the remarks i read where almost verbatim, something like, "manning has the best vision or football mind, but his arm strength is diminished.  he throws a lot of ducks."  so it was praise, but 'ducks' took it somewhere else.

and if you weren't aware, manning responded just a day or so ago.  Jay Mohr plyaed the audio just i think yesterday, of peyton saying, with a note of sarcasm, "yeah, I do throw a lot of ducks.  5,000 yards and 55 TD, thats a lot of 'ducks'."

Shame Us: but made the point also that it's not really a problem.


yeah, but what else is he gonna say, this close to gametime?  "motherfark richard sherman?  we're comin' right at him all day every day!"  manning is smart enough to give the corporate answer.

although on that note, "we're coming at him", i loved how whatever tlaking head has a theory on that.  i heard....i think daryl johnston, if not him then john lynch, say "if i'm the Donks, i send a message early.  we're not scared of sherman.  if we can complete 3-4 passes in his area, his covereage, we're gonna send a message and seattle has to alter their gameplan."

then the next guy will say, "oh no, stay away from him, you know he's gonna be eager to make a play.  if he makes a play early, it will snowball against denver.  if i'm denver, i stay away from sherman if at all possible."

That's probably it.  Seattle has been absolutely vicious if their defense makes a big play at the start of the game.  That's when they have their blowouts.  The D gets a huge boost, the offense plays more aggressively, and everyone just starts the frenzy.  Manning should know better than to try to squeeze the ball into a tight space or to challenge Sherman directly.

yes, but the nuance is i was under the impression he juuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuust made those comments.  he is right.  ESPN's frothing at the mouth about his comments, which were made more widely available just 4-5 days prior to the game, i thought that was unwise by sherman.  he's right.  but you don't poke the bear AS I THOUGHT HE WAS days before the ultimate game in your profession.

i now see i was kinda bamboozled a little bit.

and "dozens of others" aren't going to be on the field against Peyton sunday. pretty sure Bill Simmons, Boomer Esiason, mark schlereth etc., aren't gonna be in nickel sunday.

yeah, i would stay away from him.  aside from all his yappiness, i don't think the national football fan really knows how good not just he, but the secondary in general is.  he's a stayaway.

really curious what the SEA defenseive gameplan is.  aside from the obvious, "rawr, limit turnovers, hit manning*, control the LOS, etc.," i think they squash the field.  manning can't throw the deep ball.  they have average to pretty farking good speed on the receiving corps, but if SEA can bump them at the line and disrupt timing, could be a long day.  so i think it will be a lot of LOS pressure with the S maybe 15 yards off the LOS.  squash the field and make Peyton prove he can stretch the field.

*because that happens so very, very often

I do wonder what the deepest pass Manning has thrown this season is.  Not with the YAC, but from LOS to destination.  I agree, though.  I think Seattle is going to creep forward and try to keep those slants and crosses under control, and definitely slap around and WRs who catch them.  For a deep ball, Seattle will have to rely on Thomas's speed to get there (he's not disappointed in the past).

As for the pressure, it doesn't matter if they actually sack him.  If they get a hand on him or slap him on the shoulder a few times, he will get jumpier.

yeah, i dont' know either.  i saw a few Donks games but not many. but it seemed like a lot of classic Manning slot/crossing routes, which of course welker has made his NFL bones on (not to mention the pick plays!).

i just don't see DEN having a lot of pass success.  i just can't see them getting, you know, 300 in the air.  i think SEA wins rather convincingly and keeps DEN low.  i have my predictions elsewerhe, where i said something like 27-15 or some shiat.  i just see SEA doin' it and doin' it and doin' it well.

I poked around for stats about Manning's long passes.  I couldn't really find any.  His longest "pass" this season was a 78 yard screen pass against the Ravens.  Manning threw it maybe two yards deep.  I do think there was a thirty-some yard pass at the end of the season where he hit Decker about 15 yards deep up the middle.  That's all I can remember.  But yes, dare Manning to toss deep at the start, see if he still has it.
