Here is another look at the week that was in terms of the “just missed it” plays. Yes, I know a “just missed it” TD is worth 0 points, but I think these notes are worth publishing because I’d want to know if a guy who didn’t do anything for me in a given week at least almost scored, or was in a position to score.
Marshawn Lynch had a touchdown taken off the board by review
Tate punt return for TD taken off the board by penalty
Brandon Browner trips over himself on way to end zone on potential pick-six, Marshawn finishes it off two plays later
Palmer leads Ellington a yard too far in end zone on wheel route against LB-man coverage
Jacoby Jones had a step for potential long TD pass but Flacco throws it way too short.
Derek Moye has a potential long TD pass slip through his fingertips for TD. Did make an acrobatic catch earlier in the game
Emmanuel Sanders kickoff return for TD taken off the board, stepped out of bounds.
Case Keenum had Garrett Graham wide open deep downfield for potential TD, just overthrew him off of play-action roll to opposite side
Graham dives for end zone on run along sideline, [...]
Here are raw notes from our Week Six tape study on all of the “just missed it” plays from this past week.
Packers D had an awesome goal-line stand midway thru 2nd quarter, stopping Rice (3 attempts) and Pierce (1 attempt) on four goal-to-go situations from the 4-yard line and closer.
GB PK Mason Crosby missed a 44-yd FG late in 2nd qtr.
With 12:54 left in 3rd on 3rd and 4 at BAL 28, GB QB Rodgers threw deep for WR Jordy Nelson on a corner route in the end zone but BAL CB Jimmy Smith intercepted the pass and ruined a potential TD.
Rodgers again to Nelson on 1st and 20 at BAL 35, but Lardarius Webb knocked the ball away, preventing a TD.
Ravens WR Marlon Brown nearly went 65 yards for a TD taking a short 1st and 10 pass from the BAL 35 over the middle in stride from Flacco. He was forced out of bounds after gaining 59 yards to the GB 6-yard line at 5:58 of the third quarter.
On 1st and goal at the GB 6, Ravens WR Tandon Doss takes an over the shoulder pass in left corner of end zone but stepped out of bounds on [...]
I was under the weather late last week, so I did not get a chance to post week’s five’s “Just missed it.” So here it is, and remember these are raw notes, so I’m not exactly editing and cleaning these notes up to post on the blog.
Josh Gordon drops a perfect pass going up the seam for potential catch-and-run 90-yard TD.
Stevie Johnson gets open just enough on Haden and almost hauls in a TD pass but Haden is called for interference.
Gordon gets pulled down to the ground on goal-line pass, and has one sail just above his fingertips later in the game at the goal-line.
Chandler nearly makes juggling, one-hand catch with defender literally holding his entire arm down
Alshon Jeffery catches long pass late in game, but is taken down near 2-yard line. Marshall finishes it off.
Cincy QB Andy Dalton made a terrible red zone mistake, throwing across his body on the last play of the first quarter, giving up an INT at the Pats’ 8 yard line. He was targeting TE Tyler Eifert who was covered.
12:00 left in game, Dalton to Green on a short throw on 3rd and 3 at Pats 23, single-covered by Aqib Talib, a shake move [...]
Once again, here are some RAW NOTES from our film reviews for the week that outline some big plays that were just missed in Week Four.
Sam Bradford missed any easy corner throw to Austin Pettis for a possible TD, two defensive backs jumped Tavon Austin route, pretty unacceptable throw.
Brandon Marshall could only get one foot down in end zone on 23-yard pass down sideline.
Calvin Johnson just can’t make a deep catch in the back of the end zone, as Matthew Stafford’s throw just a touch late
Alshon Jeffery drops a TD pass in end zone but catches the next throw against Slay in the end zone.
Marques Colston almost fought off double coverage for a TD at end of game
Mike Wallace had pass go right through his hands on a deep ball perfectly thrown by Tannehill
About 8 minutes Eli Manning to Hakeem Nicks on 1st and 10 at own 48, Nicks had ball go thru his hands on what could’ve been a 52-yard TD. As it turned out, Giants were penalized for holding on play so would’ve nullified the play anyway.
Alex Smith for Donnie Avery ahead of defender on left sideline for a big play, but he overthrew him.
Here’s one you don’t [...]
Once again this is not a complete list, but I hope to catch up next week and we certainly will with the byes coming, but here are this week’s raw notes on some potential TDs.
Alex Smith nearly scored a rushing TD on the first drive, as he tucked and ran from the 15, tripped at the 2.
Tony Romo hit Dez Bryant on a 38-yard gain but Bryant had to stretch out for it and make an acrobatic diving catch. A better throw would’ve resulted in a 44-yard TD on Dallas’s second possession. He eventually scored to cap the drive on a 2-yard pass from Romo.
Dez Bryant had what would’ve been a 22-yard catch nullified as he was whistled for pass int. early in 2nd qt. And with 9 minutes left in 4th, Bryant had two steps on a defender but dropped a throw from Romo that minimally would’ve been a 30-yard gain and possibly a 79-yard TD.
Antonio Gates was held without a TD but had a near miss as Rivers hit him on a crossing pattern that seemed to be there all day. Brandon Boykin came from behind and stripped the ball from Gates at the 1 and the Eagles [...]
