Good evening Niner fans! Good luck in the Super Bowl!

An unbalanced line formation for the Ravens with NO eligible receivers on the left side? That's a 5 yard penalty. Does this guy really know what he's talking about?!
Why does he have us showing a 4-3 defense? Cmon man!!!!!!!!!!
does he ever not pick the 49ers to win?

Are you sure you know what you're talking about? As long as there 7 men on the LOS its a legal formation.

LOL! You don't know what YOU are talking about. You need eligible receivers on either side of the LOS... Not just 7 men on the LOS.

Serious question though: If the NFL game can have 4 eligible receivers and running backs in the backfield legally, and a receiver on the left side,then how is it an illegal formation? I want to know whats right about this, since I think I know most of the correct formation alignments allowed

In order for a formation to be legal it needs either a WR or a TE on either side of the LOS. What you described above probably has a TE or an "eligible" olineman (who reported to the ref as an eligible receiver). Note: since you need 7 players on the LOS, the 5 players between the two eligible receivers are NOT eligible. If you line up on the LOS with 8 players, you lose an eligible player since there are 6 men between the two eligible receivers. That's why you see the slot receiver not aligned with the outside receiver because he would be "covered" and become ineligible.
