  1. Greater player of all time? Jerry Rice or Tom Brady

    I think that if you factor in the relative importance of each position, then you clearly have to go with John Hannah, the greatest left guard in history.
  2. I think it depends on other factors, such as whether HGH would still be delivered to him - I mean, to his wife.
  3. Has Tom Brady has 3 different HOF Careers?

    He has HOF careers inside of HOF careers. HOF inception.
  4. This is a hypothetical that is akin to dividing by zero. The size of his head made it impossible for him to avoid a neck injury.
  5. Patriots to hire Greg Schiano as Defensive Coordinator to replace Flores

    For those more in the know: Did this guy really know about what was going on with Sandusky and turn his head?
  6. Is the Patriots dynasty good or bad for football?

    And now there's this: https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/02/07/early-super-bowl-rating-was-lower-than-late-stages-of-afc-championship-game/ The SB rating in the first quarter was lower than for the 4th quarter and overtime of the AFC Championship. I'd say that pushes the narrative more toward the Rams not having much of an L.A. fanbase rather than people being tired of the Patriots, because the ratings for a Patriots game two weeks earlier were higher. And then this: https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/01/21/nfc-ratings-down-afc-ratings-up-for-championship-sunday/ Ratings for the AFCCG were the highest for any CCG since 2012, while the ratings for the NFCCG were the lowest for that time slot since 2013. Seems like it's more about the Rams than the Patriots.
  7. Is the Patriots dynasty good or bad for football?

    There was also a story recently that the ratings in LA were actually lower than the rest of the country. So I think it's combination of people being sick of the Patriots, the score being so low, and the Rams not having a sizable fanbase.
  8. Super Bowl LIII: Rams vs. Patriots - Poll Added!

    For those who don't know yet, NFL Next Gen Stats has a Super Bowl page where you can click on any play of the game and see a simple diagram animation of what happened, from the pre-snap formations to pre-snap movements and the play itself. Scroll down and under Play Diagrams on the right, click any play. https://nextgenstats.nfl.com/super-bowl
  9. What are your thoughts on the HOF?

    It's the only acceptable reason for voluntarily visiting the state of Ohio.
  10. Super Bowl LIII: Rams vs. Patriots - Poll Added!

    This guy's film breakdowns have been great all season. Must read if you're a subscriber to The Athletic. This particular play breakdown is just one of the many reasons why I chuckle when people say the game was boring and offense just didn't perform. It was a chess match back and forth, oftentimes split seconds before the snap. Just great defense on both sides.
  11. Why will we never see another Patriots dynasty again? Salary cap?

    Nah. The AFC has a winning record vs. the NFC since 2001. Also, even if you exclude all the SBs the Patriots were in, the AFC still has a winning 5-4 record in the SB since 2001.
  12. Has Julian Edelman punched his ticket?

    LOL at this thread going 9 pages. Say what? Pretty much the whole thread is everyone, including most Patriots fans, saying no, he shouldn't get into the HoF, mixed with a healthy dose of toddlers crying about cheating and PEDs. Time to lock it up.
  13. Was that Belichick's defensive masterpiece?

    Generally I always figured that any passing play snaps were considered dropbacks, not just those under center. I certainly could be wrong there, though. I'd be more curious about what qualifies as "pressure." How close a defender was when the ball was thrown? How do you even measure that? You can't, so clearly there is subjectivity built in.
  14. Was Super Bowl LIII "boring"?

    It was a duck. It was a duck because halfway through his motion, Brady realized he got fooled and was in trouble, and it affected the rest of his motion. That was Romo's opinion anyway. The well-disguised coverage fooled Brady and caused the duck.
  15. Was that Belichick's defensive masterpiece?

    I am not sure, but probably. Those were from ESPN. I saw another figure from I think PFF that said 40+ percent of dropbacks.
