  1. New Derek Carr thread

    Yeah I understand why some stuff rubs you the wrong way. Sometimes I wish he would just cuss someone out and say **** this ****. No one is irreplaceable. Unsure if he understands that part. But the talent and opportunity are there for everything to come together this upcoming season.

    More than a couple. Jones (Both of em), Harris, Simmons, Littleton, Schoebert and more could be potential splash guys...
  3. New Derek Carr thread

    I feel if we give him a 3rd year in Gruden's system and continue to build the offense, the "switch" will flip. I saw more of those moments/games in year 2 than year 1. That's my opinion and the opinion of many "supporters". I feel that we have more to gain by rolling the dice and seeing if he's "that guy" this coming year. I think the most underrated factor (both good and bad) is that Carr needs to have "trust" in a receiver. If he doesn't have it, he doesn't throw them the ball. We saw it with Zay Jones and injured Tyrell. He just would not do it. If he gets an offseason with his new targets, I really think he'll have a career year. I remember he used to do some improvisation with Crab because he had a deep trust in him to come down with the ball. Again, just my opinion.

    At what point is it considered trolling? If any of us support him, we're a cult, for the record.

    Where is this from?
  6. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    Pittman has great competitiveness and ball skills but lacks in key areas I think you need to be a successful day 1 nfl starter. His deficiencies are the same reasons I feel Higgins is underrated. Higgins moves so well for a big guy. Great speed and COD.

    I'll kick the tires on anyone if they're super cheap. Sometimes a change of scenery can bring out the best in someone. I'd bring him in. >>>>>>Curtis Riley

    It’s easier to ignore this context you provided. It doesn’t fit the narrative.
  9. New Derek Carr thread

    His YPA was a career-high. His passer rating, which weighs all relevant passer metrics was a career-high. I'm just stating numbers. I don't attach huge value to any of these #'s, which is why I respect some degree of disagreement based on "the eye test".
  10. New Derek Carr thread

    There's no cult. How is it so hard to understand that there are fans of the same team that don't see the qb as the problem? The ad hominem and hyperbole is just ridiculous. These last 3 or 4 pages have been a microcosm of the thread.

    Below average game manager... There's going to be so much backtracking next year...
  12. New Derek Carr thread

    They feel they can acquire an elite talent at the position. IMO they can’t. It wouldn’t be a smart move.
  13. New Derek Carr thread

    What on earth are you talking about? He packed it in because you thought he looked lost on the sidelines? And yeah, no he definitely made more than "like 5 plays" with his legs all season. Truly, the hyperbole is real in this thread.
  14. New Derek Carr thread

    You're pushing the toughness argument, when Carr has played through several injuries. You're pushing the "given up" argument. So you're saying he just packed it in this year? Why do his teammates defend him then? You're pushing the qb wins argument. The most idiotic one in the sport. The reaches are only going to get bigger as the offseason progresses. DC may get traded. But LOL it won't be because he "lost his mojo". He showed progression in some areas this year, especially extending plays and using his feet. I'm not saying he doesn't have flaws, but people act like he regressed and sucked down the stretch. As soon as the team is piled with injuries, offensive performance vastly declines and you think there's no coincidence there? Most of the detractors of Carr who want him out haven't really given credence to the idea that the team with "the elite OL, RB, and TE" were missing key pieces of the OL, the RB, and had a revolving door at WR down the stretch. But scapegoat the qb right? Ignore metrics, including wins above replacement. It's easier to scapegoat. I can't wait to see the "Darren Carr" replies in the comments because I'm trying to push back against the 1 sided direction of this thread.
  15. Redskins Release Josh Norman

    Can he play free safety? He always struck me as more of an instinctive guy with ball skills than a pure man cover guy...
