    Its not a "double" reverse. It was a regular reverse. A double reverse is when it goes -> <- ->

    Why does everyone think thats a double reverse? 3 guys have to touch the ball BESIDES the QB in order to be a double reverse!!!

    Wait what?? That's exactly what it did. Looked to me like Flacco gave to someone, and he flipped it to Clayton the other way.

    Sounds like a double reverse to me. I'll have to wait to get home to see it again.

    As I posted above, STan said Joe's great fake on the first reverse is what sold the 2d reverse and the blockers have to do their job.

    The Ravens are winning it on the line right now.
    The guys running past the QB (fake handoff) don't matter. Its how many guys touch the ball after the QB hands it off. On that play, 2 guys only touched the ball, hence the standard reverse.

    The talking heads have it wrong, as they usually do!!!

    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.
