Bills GM Brandon Beane: It's a competitive disadvantage to not be 100% vaccinated

  Bills GM Brandon Beane: It's a competitive disadvantage to not be 100% vaccinated Only three teams in the NFL have reportedly reached 100% vaccination: the Falcons, Buccaneers and Raiders.Beane was asked by John Kryk of the Toronto Sun whether it's a competitive disadvantage not to have a fully vaccinated roster. He said it is, especially when going up against a team that is fully vaccinated.

During the opening kickoff between Michigan and Maryland, ESPN used its SkyCam angle to catch Giles Jackson’ s 97-yard return touchdown . This angle was recently seen during a game between the New Orleans Saints and Chicago Bears. Most fans thought it was a brilliant idea by FOX because it basically gives the viewers a clear shot of everything going on during the play. Clearly, the college football world feels the same exact way about SkyCam technology. Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports came out in support of the new camera angle. In fact, he wants this shot to be used more often.

Then go look at the last Duke touchdown at 6 seconds in regulation. A QB sneak but he DIDN'T SCORE. He was stuffed before the goal line only the officials didn't have a good angle to over turn the touchdown ruling on replay. But watch that with an open mind and tell me what happened on this play is any worse. Running onto the field (with or without helmet) is a DEAD BALL penalty. Which means even if they called the penalty it wouldn't negate the touchdown , just impact where the extra point or kickoff was taken from.

Camerapeople are a bit like offensive linemen. When they’re doing their job well you don’t even notice them but when something goes wrong, you’re suddenly very aware of them.

We’ve certainly seen plenty of fake-outs that fool not only the audience at home but also the person behind the camera during the broadcast. Hey, it happens. And it happened again Thursday night when Marshall ran an exquisite fake hand-off during a kickoff return for a touchdown.

Appalachian State kicked off in the middle of the 2nd quarter following a touchdown drive when Marshall’s Rasheen Ali took the ball, made like was handing it off to one of his teammates, and then used the ensuing confusion to scamper to the endzone on a 97-yard-touchdown run. While the ESPN cameraperson initially took the bait like most of us, they eventually caught on and were able to recover in time to see the score as it happened.

Marshall took a 30-21 lead into the fourth quarter and if they hang on to win the game, this kick return might end up making the difference. Of course, there’s always the chance they or App State has another trick play up their sleeve. We’re guessing that if that happens, the ESPN camera crew will be ready this time.

The exact reason why a player misses practice isn’t necessarily a huge deal, especially if the differing reasons are likely to have a similar impact (or non-impact) on the player’s game availability. But there are times where that reason makes a big difference to the discussion around the player. And that led to some criticism Read more The post Adam Schefter comes under fire for Lamar Jackson tweet, investment in gambling app company alongside Robert Kraft appeared first on Awful Announcing.
