That's a disease plaguing most of the league. Not an excuse, just a clinical fact. New rules possibly making people hesitate for a critical half-second? Dunno. But most all teams can't tackle for shit anymore.
Seeing the results of his hard work and dedication to improve, if I were the GM I'd not be playing hardball with him trying to extend my bargain. We've gotten 4 years cheap. Life expectancy of QBs these days is 12 years or more. Finding one isn't easy. He's holding all the cards at this point...
Yeah they have screwed up a coupla times over the years, accidentally violating league rules.
The league DOES allow some flexibility though, having been known to push the late game kickoff back a bit to accomodate the networks.
And "moral victories." Like "going 1-1 in this difficult stretch" like Ginger is already talking.
His losertalk is so, so damaging. REAL coaches with playoff hopes still alive don't talk about going 1-1 in a hellweek scenario like we're looking at next week. They talk about sweeping hellweek...
Which, I knew it was coming and even told my buds here watching the game it was coming... We just HAD to ice the game there by getting that first down. If we do a 3 and out there, Detroit winds up winning this one.
