I was never sure why it was considered a major breach for the batter to sneak a peek behind him.
the fact that it's considered a major breach if the batter tries to sneak a peak behind him to see whether the pitch is being directed outside or inside, or up or down.
When a defensive linebacker clawed the quarterback's face one time too many, on a prearranged signal the offensive line would let the offender rush the passer unobstructed, whereupon the offender would get a face full of football. Sammy Baugh did this once, and for some reason never had to do it again.
As opposed to an offensive linebacker? And what about defensive linemen?
Of course I meant any defensive player. Sorry if I confused you.
It's kind of funny watching Showalter trying to look angry while wearing a cap with a smiling cartoon bird on it.
Sorry if I confused you.
Not only was Baugh accurate he was also supremely confident in himself. During Baugh’s rookie season Redskins coach Ray Flaherty was outlining a pass pattern on a chalkboard and he told Baugh, “When the receiver reaches here, you hit him in the eye with the ball.” Baugh shot back deadpan, “which eye?”
(Baugh wasn’t joking about hitting a player in the eye. Late in his career when he was a living legend, Baugh was given a cheap-shot hit by an opposing rookie defensive lineman. Baugh admonished the rookie to take it easy whereupon the impertinent rookie gave Baugh another cheap-shot on the very next play. Baugh told his linemen to let the rookie through on the next play—which they did—whereupon Baugh threw a line-drive pass that hit the rookie right between the eyes and knocked him out—remember football fans they didn’t wear face masks in those days).
If it's not in PFB-Reference in the form of a statistic, it must not have happened.
What sort of "work" do you do yourself?
Oh, and BTW: Prove it.
