Now this is a case of better football through knowledge.
On the first field-goal attempt by the Jaguars Sunday, Gabe Watson – anchoring the middle of the Cards’ field-goal block team, said that as he came across the ball, the left guard went low toward his knees. Out of the corner of his eye, Watson said he saw the same thing from the long snapper and the right guard.
So Watson came to the sideline and told the coaches. And the next time the Jags tried a field goal, he told Calais Campbell as well.
“I told him, ‘Calais, I’m going to take a step forward, pull them toward me, you hit the gap and block the field goal.’ ” Watson said. “And right after that all you hear is ‘Boomp (the kicker kicking the ball), Boomp (Campbell blocking the ball).’
“And I was like, ‘Damn, it worked!’ ”
