    Then there are the INTs that result when the DB jumps a shallow out or a curl pattern. INTs in the middle of the field (in both senses: between the hashes and between the 30s) don't generally get run back for TDs.


    Interesting! I would have thought the closer you were to your own end zone the more likely

    If you look at last season I think a lot of it had to do with the playcalling. All the plays were underneath and checkdowns. Picks on those types of plays are much more likely to lead to a TD than deep shots down the field where receivers and backs have chances at tackling the defensive player who comes up with the pick.

    Five pick 6's in 3 years?

    I don't get all of the hype here.

    lol, how about that it totaly demoralizes your whole team and your D has zero chance to hold the other team to a fg or get th ball back?

    On passing plays, maybe we should have Revis line up as a RB 15 yards or so behind the line of scrimmage so that he can be in position to make the tackle after the INT.
