  1. Doesn't matter. Jerry will always have era on his side, and the NFL is increasing to 17, maybe 18 games in the near future. So anyone even approaching Jerry's numbers will have several advantages that he never had even with his greatness.
  2. There are multiple ways to look at this question. Is it watching a single team throughout the course of a season have a great offense or defense? Is the other unit of that team whether it's offense or defense lackluster or straight up bad compared to their contrasting offensive/defensive unit? Is it two teams in a game that pop off that day on offense or defense? Is it really an offense or defense popping off, or is it just the opponent having a bad enough unit it makes the opponent look better than they are? Maybe I'm overthinking, so I'll just say I'd rather watch a team like the 2002 Chiefs or 1981 Chargers than the 2000 Ravens, 1985 Bears, or 1991 Eagles. I like scoring, quality QB play, and offensive innovation.
  3. In this universe we get a future first round pick for Solomon Thomas via the Bears lol. Nick Bosa has 3 sacks during the 2020 campaign. Jimmy G starts as an 83 overall. Oh, and Winston beat the 49ers at home in NFC title game to to take the Bucs to the Super Bowl. Gotta love Madden.
  4. They even have a new pimp walk. Bow down or get scraped.
  5. So, the new CBA crackdowns on holdouts wouldn't apply to Kittle if he went that route since he's still on his first contract right?
  6. Great review by JT O'Sullivan on this one. As a 49ers fan, it was great to finally see actual pages of this. I hope one day the book is reprinted or released digitally. It's very easy to see why Bill got burnt out. That page with just the install of offense looks like a nightmare. As fans what we see on television is just a small chunk of all of the hours, and hours that the coaches and players put into the classroom. I feel like that is the real "game" regardless of your talent level. And even after all that preparation, things still might not work out for you on Sundays. Also with little long-term job security in the NFL, it's remarkable more folks don't go mad. Maybe Bill was wise to get out after winning Super Bowl 23, especially with the front office putting the clamps on him. Anyway, wish I could get my hands on this book. It's ridiculously overpriced on ebay though. Hopefully one day it's reprinted digitally.

  8. LOL when fans fall in love with a legend and 4D chess themselves silly.
  9. Yeah maybe...but I want to see Steve Smith put up 1700 yards with Chris Miller and Mark Rypien playing musical chairs at QB.
  10. Like Jim Brown, modern era max potential Don Hutson would be interesting to see. Unfortunately we can't figure that out. All we know is that he did dominate his era.
  11. You're arguing something different though, which wasn't what I was talking about. Quality of the team has nothing to do with how the NFL decides to seed teams for the postseason, because it's not designed to denote the quality of a team more so it's just designed to easily establish order for the playoffs swiftly at the most basic level. That dynamic is different, and it doesn't mean that the quality of a team is in sync with it's record. I'm not asking for the NFL to change. I'm saying people need to not just evaluate a team based on it's record. The NFL's system of categorizing teams for postseason play is a ****ty excuse not to. Were the 2019 13-3 Packers as dominant a team as the 1996 13-3 Packers because they had the same record? That kind of thing. Parcell's quote wasn't right in that aspect if that is what he inferred. Because record doesn't necessarily denote quality. That's different from how a team fits into the NFL landscape for moving forward throughout the season. If you're a player or a coach, who cares. If you're a fan that wants to talk about teams, then don't use record as an end-all/be-all arguing point.
  12. Super Bowl XLV Green Bay Packers (13-6) vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (14-4) Sunday Feb 6, 2011 Start Time: 6:34pm Stadium: Cowboys Stadium Attendance: 103,219 Time of Game: 3:32 I was excited to rewatch this game despite seeing the Packers win the Super Bowl again. It had been a while since I saw prime Rodgers be a sky maestro, and this didn't disappoint. I feel like this Super Bowl isn't talked about or remembered enough. And I'm not sure why. Two legendary franchises that both had top ten units on each side of the ball, along with two HOF quarterbacks duking it out in a close game. Even after falling down 21-3, the Steelers roared back. The Packers defense clamping down on that final drive was pretty remarkable I have to say. About as remarkable as the Packers offense being undaunted by the Steelers defense. Anyway, I would probably put this in my top 5 Super Bowls that I've seen (I still have to finish a few more). It reminded me a lot of Super Bowl 32.
  13. Quality of wins. A team with a 13-3 record doesn't necessarily mean they are as good as any other team that achieved the same mark. They may not even be that dominant. 16 games is a very small sample size to go off of already. A record doesn't denote the hundreds of snaps throughout the season, who the opponents are, or whether a victory was a blowout or a close win. Yet, due to convenience, or laziness to actually take the time to analyze performance with a closer look, people will rest on quotes like "you are what you record says you are" in regards to any team. Bill Parcells said it, he's a champion, so it must be true. When in reality it's better to try and contextualize as best as you can.
