A lot of the “shit” the QB is yelling pre-snap is nothing but window dressing. Just because we see the QB barking at his line and receivers doesn’t necessarily mean that he is changing the play.

He identifies who they are designating as the middle LB-- for blocking alignment purposes.
He often calls out protection scheme for the OL and RB.
He likely has the ability to flip the play from left to right or vice versa.
He might have a verbal signal to say the next thing I say is a dummy snap-- don't move!
He might have a verbal signal that the next thing I say I mean "Hike!"
He might change a play to one of a couple standard audible options.

That's what most of that stuff before the snap is... I would say most of the time it means something and isn't just window dressing.

“Blue double 2 white major 66 go”...one word in there might actually mean something. It really isn’t as difficult as you want to think it is.

The pitch on 4th down may have been the worst call I have ever ever seen, screamed when I saw it developing, BUT it's not a fire able offense.

It absolutely is for some people on this board for Haley and Tomlin both.

Why isn’t the worst call you’ve ever seen a fireable offense? In a league, especially the playoffs, where literally a single play, a single yard can change super bowl hopes to losing at home in a disaster, dudes need to not call the “worst call you’ve ever seen”. I agree about Butler and would dismiss him too.

Situational football, isn’t that what tomlin said in an interview in the offseason that this team, or he, was working on? How can you call the toss sweep on 4th and 1 in that situation? Perhaps Mike T. was OK with the way the game was going and didn’t see the importance of scoring on that drive?

Well he said that in his presser after the game, so I guess so. Not only is he a dumbass, he’s a confident dumbass that doesn’t really second guess himself. Have fun in Orlando, Mike.
