(ESPN)   Giants coach Ben McAdoo on Eli's bungled play where they didn't get the snap off in time: "Usually the clock goes from 3 - 2 - 1 - 0." Time - how the f*ck does it work?   ( espn.com) divider line

Physicists still don't have a full grasp of that, really. Nor gravity, since they're two sides of the same coin.

Is it just me or are there more clickbait headlines here than usual?

He was explaining the process the Back Judge uses when assessing the penalty. He watches the play clock count down to zero. Once hit hits zero, he looks at the ball. If it's still on the ground, it's delay of game. So you really have a half second to a second after it hits zero to get it off. That's what he was trying to explain.

Made the comment in the football thread last night. you're running a hurry up offense. How the fark do you get a delay of game?

It's probably partially because he's so busy calling out fake BS he's not paying attention. Sorry, Eli. You're not Payton. You will never be Payton. Just call the farking play and go.

I think the Giants are going to unintentionally tank this year. McAdoo seems like an east-coast Jim Tomsula, Eli's best days are behind him, and the offense is garbage while the defense is meh. They have 4-12 written all over them.

NFC East is pretty weak this year

That comment was way too good to waste on me. You should have saved it for a couple weeks when the team wins a few and some slappy inevitably says he's a great coach. Wasting it on someone explaining his gibberish minimizes its impact.

Not a Gints fan, nor a Manning fan (Eli), but that one play, while fairly indefensible, sure as hell wasn't the reason they lost that game.  Their farking receivers are apparently allergic to catching the football or something.  That pass that Marshall dropped couldn't have been any easier if Manning had walked up and handed it to him.  And there were several other passes that should have been caught as well.

McAdoo's wrong - the NFL refs consistently and predictably call delay of game the instant that clock clicks off of "1".  There isn't a lag time where it sits at zero and you can still get the play off - not a perceptible one anyway.

Ben McAdoo looks like the manager of a Donato's Pizza in Dayton, Ohio.

The ball became so massive that it caused a localized distorion of the space-time fabric, thereby causing the time to seem to run slower for the Giants and for the ball to be so heavy, it couldn't be snapped on time to avoid the penalty. Since this temporal distortion occurred quickly and stayed in a small area, it didn't alter the multiverse timeline to where the Giants actually won.
Obviously, this football is utilizing quantum mechanics and theoretical high energy particle physics in a mysterious way to alter physical reality. But only when in the hands of the Giants.

I'm not sure why "NFL refs kind of f*cked up and did something inconsistent" is a controversial argument, but here we are

They're not supposed to. They're literally supposed to see it turn zero THEN look at the ball.

That isn't any sort of true.

Hey, if we're talking temporal distortion, let's replay Super Bowl XXXV - the one where Ray Lewis is in jail for double homocide and the refs were dismissed after they made a defensive holding call (not a thing - especially on pass plays) when Armstead scored a pick-six to tie the game at 7-7.

This year's team might overachieve to 7-9, but maybe 4-12 is more accurate.
