Thread: DL help on front burner

Did you watch the games this season? Wright alone had two that were 50+ in the air against Detroit and Green Bay. I was apparently incorrect about this one as it looks like it only goes 25 or so in the air: Ponder's 45-Yard Pass To Harvin vs. Titans

Still, we are only talking about 2 completions out of 13 over 30 yards in the air, 15%. Furthermore he's only completed 6 out of 36 passes thrown over 20 yards. 17%.
Not very good IMO.

2-3-MIN 32 (3:18) 7-C.Ponder pass incomplete deep left to 81-J.Simpson. PENALTY on DET-28-D.Bentley, Defensive Pass Interference, 31 yards, enforced at MIN 32 - No Play.
3-7-DET 49 (10:06) (Shotgun) 7-C.Ponder pass incomplete deep left to 81-J.Simpson [55-S.Tulloch]. PENALTY on DET-28-D.Bentley, Defensive Pass Interference, 26 yards, enforced at DET 49 - No Play.
I don't think they are, mostly because it says No Play... I guess if I wasn't lazy I would go count up the attempts from a game to be sure.
EDIT - OK, I stopped being lazy. No, they are not counted.
Also, looking back at the highlights from the Detroit game, I would like to say HOLY CRAP SIMPSON! Two long pass interference calls, plus two VERY key catches, one for 27 yards and the other bailing out Harvin when Percy tipped the ball in the air.
Where the hell was this Simpson the rest of the season?Zeus wrote:
When are you going to realize that picking out the 20 bad throws this year and ignoring the 300 good ones does not make your point?
