But so far both 2nd year QBs, had the game get too big for them and pressure hurt them from maximuming their game.


I'm waiting to see what happens to Rodgers, normally he has a bad game and bounces right back up... this year he has seemed to be doubling down and losing on doing it his way. All with his arm, I hoping we see better footwork from inside the pocket.

I still think getting him outside the pocket and running more like he did in MM's scheme might help him, but I'm hoping.to save that as a surprise for the 49ers defense that struggled more with that.




In the last few days I was listening to a podcast. He said Aaron Rodgers once spoke about his first playoff game. When Aaron got on to the field he felt as if he had to be a Superman and carry the whole team on his shoulders. (That's my paraphrased version.) On his first play, Rodgers threw an interception 
and he realized it takes everyone doing their best not just him.
Once upon a time Dick Vitale said he doesn't like teams led by guards who are Freshmen or Sophomores advancing very far in the college basketball tournament.  They will come up again a team led by Jr and Sr who have lesser skills but more experience.
Jackson vs Tannehill was just such a case. Obviously there were other players on the teams that contributed to the win and the loss. Watch out for Jackson over the next few years.

Everyone thought the Ravens were rolling and would be a shoe-in to the super bowl

I read this than thought to myself, "Self, I use the expression Shoe-In' all the time....I wonder where it comes from"

So I looked it up:
The commonly used spelling of shoe in makes it seem as if it were rooted in the action of a shoehorn. In fact, the meaning comes from horse racing lingo: corrupt jockeys conspire and agree to hold back their mounts and to shoo in or urge forward, a slow horse on which they have bet. In such a phony contest, the shoo-in is the only horse in the race that is trying to win.
