    Think about what you just typed! Thats the definition of a reverse. Start one way then hand it off/flick the ball and go the other. To be a double reverse, Clayton would have had to hand it to another player!

    If it was just one receiver running, it would have been an end-around. Two receivers makes it a reverse. If just one receiver touching the ball made a reverse, what direction would he be reversing from?

    Whatever it was, Billick wouldn't have called it.
    I'm pretty sure it was a standard reverse though. Mason went one way, Clayton the other.

    Well, you heard it here first, and I'm saying YOU and the IDIOTS on TV have it wrong, as usual!!!

    Heres the definition from Wiki: A classic reverse typically begins as a bootleg, sweep or end-around, but before the ball-carrier crosses the line of scrimmage he hands the ball off to a teammate, usually a wide receiver, running in the reverse (opposite) direction. Because many of the defensive players will have gravitated in the direction of the original rusher, if the second ball-carrier can outrun the defenders to the other side of the field, he has a very good chance to make a big gain.

    A variation of this play is a double reverse, in which the second ball-carrier takes the ball all or part way back across the field before he too hands off to a teammate running in the opposite direction. This causes the flow of the play to "reverse" a second time. A double reverse adds another level of surprise to the defense; however, the play takes more time and space to develop and increases the risk of a big loss or a fumbled handoff.

    From what I've seen Terry isn't looking too bad. I assume he's playing RT.

    Close there from Flacco. It's a shame he didn't get more time with the starters to more chemistry developed. But still...

    LOL, get carried away much? The severity of the injury isn't known yet -- they aren't even ruling him out for returning to this game.

    Damnit!!! The ball should have been a tad lower, but Rice HAS to keep that ball in his hands!!!

    Pryce still out. Douglas may have been a big pickup...

    Does anyone on this board still think roy should be handed the job back when healthy? Flacco looks 100 times as good as he ever has.
