JA, with other whistle, posts, holds, and then well after the L makes his blocking signal, JA then makes his adamant blocking signal. I do not recall ever seeing that type of situation. It was almost as if JA was confirming the L's call by performing, again adamantly, the same signal.

There might be a Teddy clone in the making.
Too funny as I had a similar thought on that play. I believe that we know who is replacing TV Teddy!
I can only hope that he believes that he was supporting his partner by showing everyone that he had the same call. My opinion is that the C shouldn’t even have a whistle on a secondary defender in the middle of the lane. He has no angle to see left/right movement by the defender.
Oh, and I’m not a fan of theatrical and showy mechanics.
