  1. The drive that overlapped the 3rd and 4th qtr for 1. There are a ton more from last year, but let's just call him terrible after 2 games in a brand new offense with all new pieces around him.
  2. MNF: Seahawks @ Bears

    That article was written by Michael Lombardi and was one of the most idiotic things written week 1.

    Didnt want to overreact too much to week 1. Rankings still pretty fluid right now. Week 3 is up

  5. NFL General Random Thoughts Thread

    When people talk about running backs and value they are talking about in relation to lower round picks. Gurley is obviously very special, however much like AP hes the exception to the rule. Zeke is a tremendous back but is he 4 rounds better than Jordan Howard. Is Fournette 3 rounds better than Alvin Kamara. Is Cmc 3 rounds better than Tarik Cohen. Barkley really sticks out this year bc there are backs who were really close to him on the board who went much, much later, and on top of that the Giants are rolling out the carcass of Eli Manning every week when they could have had their pick of Darnold, Allen, or Rosen. As for the QB thing again it's a comparison issue. MT10 was the 1st QB drafted of his class. Before the rookie wage scale that would mean he was likely the highest paid player in the league. Now hes playing for $5M whereas the going rate for an AVERAGE starting qb is $20M that's $15M in cap space available to allocate to other positions. No other position has that kind of $ savings just for merely having a rookie instead of a veteran. That's why it's the advantage it is.
  6. Seahawks @ Bears, 9/17/18, 7:15 CT, GAME THREAD

    Actually it wasnt a lack of awareness at all it wasnt a dl jumping up and swatting it was actually a full horizontal extension and just barely got the fingertips on it and he was targeting Arob wide open on the post. The first one was all Tru, however I'm wondering if it was an over correction from week one when he overthrew him on the corner. They have to work out the timing and placement on that connection. But they'll get it. That dime to Cohen was one of the most impressive off platform throws I've seen. At the end of the day he completed over 70% of his passes even with the 2 ints. There was growth both by the offense and by the qb this week. This is going to be a process guys. Ik we want 30+ every game but this is the 1st year in a new offense with an entirely new receiving corps.
  7. Seahawks @ Bears, 9/17/18, 7:15 CT, GAME THREAD

    Trap games arent about fans. It's about the team overlooking the opponent bc of a perceived easiness of the game and typically its sandwiched between 2 tougher games. I dont think this qualifies as a trap game.
  8. Seahawks @ Bears, 9/17/18, 7:15 CT, GAME THREAD

    I'm nervous about this game bc almost everybody is picking the Bears and I've been Bears fan my whole life and it always seems like the Bears lose when everybody picks them. That said I expect a win tonight. I expect the offense to take a couple steps and I expect our DL to dominate the LOS. Bear down

    The 9ers are not "fairly good" It was 2 really bad teams. Detroit is one of the 4 teams that look to be in the running for #1 overall.

    I'm somewhat questioning if the pack may have won the battle but lost the war last week
  11. What if Mitch is not the guy?

    I'm not saying he played great. He didnt say he played well, I'm saying that the criticisms that are being repeated are pretty stupid. Matt Nagy was trying to hide his qb. Trubisky was very inaccurate. He wasnt reading the defense. He bailed out of the pocket to much. These things are verifiably incorrect. You dont hide a QB by passing the ball twice as often as you run. You dont complete 68% of your passes if you are horribly inaccurate. The film shows that he was visibly going thru his progressions and seeing the defense well. And when he took off it was bc the pocket was breaking down and he was extending the play, often keeping the drive alive. He had 1 to in the 2 minute drill. The screenshot that was going around all week with Burton open in the endzone was very deceiving as HHCD was actually baring down on him and would have been in position to at least make a play for the ball. Calling 4 tunnel screens to Turbo when the play hadn't worked all night is not on MT10. Sims running a 6" route when he needs a yard is not on MT10. The wrs not coming back to the qb in the scramble drill is not on MT10. Does he need to get better? Absolutely. He blew a sure TD to Robinson, and he knew it. But the doom and gloom this week has been ridiculous.
  12. What if Mitch is not the guy?

    I'm just curious in what works Nagy is hiding his QB while throwing 38 passes to 22 runs. That's got to be one of the stupidest things I heard. Also how was he not able to read defenses. It's not like he threw a ton of picks. He completed almost 70% of his passes...again. Some of the things I heard this week are just stupid. People are parroting things they are hearing from other people and there are no facts behind it.
  13. Week One - Bears vs Packers.

    I could see that, and that would probably be my call as well. But the play itself got the exact look, and the exact coverage it was designed for, so I can't fault the call to much. We sometimes forget the guys on the other side get paid to make plays as well
  14. Bills to start Josh Allen; Peterman era over

    Hes never going to win a collusion case for 2 reasons. 1) its damn near impossible to win a collision case without some piece of physical evidence that clearly demonstrates collusion i.e. an email. 2) there likely was no collusion. These are 32 of the biggest egos on the planet. Forget about the fact that some of these guys consider themselves "Mavericks" and would never agree to conspire together. Several of these owners would let the rest of the NFL burn if it meant another super bowl championship. They all also come with a wide variety of political views. The idea that you could get these 32 men to make this sort of political statement together is foolhardy at best. Just look at what happened when the NFL announced it's new anthem policy. Here's what actually happened. 32 owners decided independently that Collin Kaepernick the player and person was not worth losing 50% of the audience and taking on that kind of baggage. Kaepernick likely could get a job as a backup now, except he is suing the league so no team is going to sign him while this is ongoing. Tldr; The NFL didn't blackball Collin Kaepernick, Collin Kaepernick blackballed himself.
  15. Week One - Bears vs Packers.

    The wheel route wasnt a bad call. They got the exact look they were looking for, you had Tarik Cohen being single covered by an edge olb. I'll take that matchup everytime. Collinsworth actually did a good job calling out how that guy did an excellent job to stay in coverage with Cohen into the endzone
