  1. From Sharp Football Can The Chiefs Stop Raheem Mostert & The 49ers Run Game In The Super Bowl ? https://www.sharpfootballanalysis.com/analysis/super-bowl-raheem-mostert-49ers-run-game/ ."..During the regular season, 49ers running backs jointly ranked third in the NFL in touches per game (31.5) and second in yards from scrimmage per game (175.3). So far through two postseason games, 49ers backs have 42 touches for 180 yards and 38 touches for 249 yards. This is all old news to the Chiefs. They are coming off facing a team that was operating in the same capacity in the AFC Championship game. Prior to last Sunday, Tennessee had a 77-to-33 rushing to passing play split in the playoffs. Leading at the half in each game, that mark was 49-12 in the second half of those games and 28-4 in the fourth quarter. "
  2. I think he is going to chafe under the yoke of the court's supervision I wish him well in adapting to his new boss If he does well - the NFL loves redemption stories and he'll find work in 2021
  3. Sharp Football with their in-depth analysis of Mahomes vs 49ers D, couple of snippets below https://www.sharpfootballanalysis.com/analysis/super-bowl-matchup-patrick-mahomes-49ers-defense/ "On the pressure front, Mahomes has been pressured on just 29.1% of his dropbacks this season, which is the fourth-lowest rate out of the 28 quarterbacks this season that took at least 50% of their team dropbacks this season per Pro Football Focus. When Mahomes was pressured, he handled it well, taking a sack on just 10.7% of those pressures (second lowest rate) while ranking fourth in accuracy and second in quarterback rating on those pressured dropbacks." The most comparable game to the 49ers D - who rank 2nd in expected points added via pass defense- was when the Chiefs faced the team 1st in that category (the Patriots) in Week 14. In that game, Mahomes completed 26-of-40 passes (65.0%) for 283 yards with a touchdown and an interception while rushing for 6 yards
  4. Is a London team viable at this stage?

    There are substantial UK and EU fans for many of the 32 teams. I don't see them switching Putting a non-premium franchise there isn't going to garner more interest and revenue than a rotation of teams coming through in the current set up The Jags have delivered exactly (1) double digit win season and playoff appearance over the last decade. And their prospects for 2020 aren't much brighter The goal of mo money is unlikely to be achieved by putting the Jags in London, so why go through all the logistical flips and twists needed to make it happen ?

  6. Notable Stats and Observations

    In this article from OverTheCap, they are making the argument that going for 2 is almost always better than kicking the PAT I'm not bright enough to fully understand the stats around this, so I was hoping that some of you can shed some light on it The part I am confused by is that they look at PAT success rate of 94 % chance of getting 1 pt and suggest that you're actually better off to have a 49 % chance of getting 2 pts Where I struggle is how do you account for the fact that you either get 2 or 0 if you come up short, vs a 94 % chance of getting 1pt with the PAT ? https://overthecap.com/two-point-conversions-look-into-it/ Here's the Expected Points Added data "Over the course of the 2018 and 2019 seasons, kickers combined to make 94.1% of extra point attempts, meaning the Expected Points Added (EPA) for that play is 0.941 " During those same two seasons, the NFL’s two-point conversion rate was 49.4%, which is an EPA of 0.988 " So in my thinking, you have a greater than 50% chance of getting no points at all. So the only way to make it work is to go for 2 on every TD Over the course of an entire season, these numbers average out - but in a single instance, I'm not sure it makes as much sense as they claim
  7. Relationship Advice Thread

    You are using logic and reason to persuade vs her love of her family and desire to be near them. You're not wrong in your plan, its actually quite sound. Unfortunately, none of your reasons ( taxes, schools, finances) carry much weight when it comes to breaking the umbilical cord. What would happen if you pitched your plan to the Mom and the sister ? Would they dismiss it or would they be more open to your suggestions ? I'm guessing they would not be interested in having her move 45 minutes away. Depending on the age of your kids, its a fair chance they wouldn't be up for it either. So you are vastly outnumbered and will either have to move all of them or none of them given their current stance So you need a new strategy that they will all buy into and see as an upgrade over what they have now. Can you all move into the same neighborhood in the new location ? 2 minutes away instead of 10 ? How old is her Mom and how long before she needs some assistance with her day-to-day life ? Good luck
  8. I seriously think AB might have brain damage from the NFL

    I'm not seeing anybody letting him off - I'm seeing people looking for a deeper understanding of what's going on and why A "normal" person wouldn't behave in this fashion, so the next step is to understand what drives this "not normal" behavior. If Antonio was using this as an excuse to avoid the consequences of his actions, you might have a point. But the discussion here hasn't been about excusing, its been about understanding the underlying pathology that leads to his erratic behavior and how that relates to playing football at the highest levels
  9. I seriously think AB might have brain damage from the NFL

    "...caution must be used in interpreting the high frequency of CTE in this sample, and estimates of prevalence cannot be concluded or implied from this sample. Second, the VA-BU-CLF brain bank is not representative of the overall population of former players of American football; most players of American football have played only on youth or high school teams, but the majority of the brain bank donors in this study played at the college or professional level. Additionally, selection into brain banks is associated with dementia status, depression status, marital status, age, sex, race, and education.36 Third, this study lacked a comparison group that is representative of all individuals exposed to American football at the college or professional level, precluding estimation of the risk of participation in football and neuropathological outcomes.

  11. Indeed The NFL is entertainment and as an entertainment enterprise, they copied the same playbook as Hollywood. They pimp the stars: Mel Gibson, Tom Cruise, George Clooney etc. That's what fills the theaters and rings the cash register. Its why we don't hear much about The Steel Curtain, The Purple People Eaters, the No Name defense of Miami anymore. The team-based promotions are few and far between with the Legion of Boom being one of them. Everything is focused on the face of the franchise, the leading men.
  12. I seriously think AB might have brain damage from the NFL

    Several teams at UCLA have been making some progress on that front, both via innovative tracers in PET scans and now via MRI's that are read with specialized software. http://newsroom.ucla.edu/releases/mri-scan-may-help-diagnose-chronic-traumatic-encephalopathy-ucla-researchers-report "While the findings from this single case report are preliminary, they raise the possibility that MRI scans could be used to diagnose CTE and related conditions in living people. At present, CTE can be diagnosed only by direct examination of the brain during an autopsy. “Having an MRI-based technique for detecting this pattern of brain changes would help us a lot in assessing the brain health of athletes and others with histories of concussions,” said Dr. David Merrill, assistant clinical professor of psychiatry and biobehavioral sciences at the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA." As far as the rehabilitated spokesman role, its a good idea but I'm not seeing it with Mr Brown. Maybe Mr Pink, but definitely not Mr. Brown Antonio doesn't want to be anybodies pet, he's always been his own man and he would chafe under the yoke of the NFL using him to further their cause.
