  1. Keyshawn Johnson is who comes to mind for me. A big talent wide receiver, who just wasn’t a touchdown threat, Especially after he left the Jets. He had one season in the top ten in touchdowns: when he had ten and was 6th in the league.
  2. Who do you have making the All Pro Teams

    QB Wilson RB Cook WR Thomas, Evans Flex McCaffrey Interior Donald edge Barrett, C. Jones linebacker Collins, Wagner CB Gilmore Safety D. McCourty
  3. Biggest FA bust so far

    Richard Seymour was towards the end of his career when he left, but he was good in Oakland and deservedly made two pro bowls. He wasn’t prime Seymour, as he was in his 30s, but he was solid and even had some sacks despite that not being his game. Lawyer Milloy was very good after he left. Ty Law lead the league in interceptions after he left NE. Jones is a beast in Arizona. Logan Mankins made a pro bowl in Tampa. Yeah, with the exception of Jones, those guys were all towards the ends of the careers when they left, but they continued to play well. they are of course examples of players who never did anything in New England and then established themselves elsewhere. The Patriots litany of second round DBs who never did anything for them, who are then got snaps for other teams (Cyrus Jones, Duke Dawson, Tavon Wilson).
  4. What aspect of special teams? Everyone is going to say kick returns or punt returns because those guys who break plays twice a year get glory. Kicking is another obvious choice. nevertheless, I would argue kick coverage is important. For example the 2019 Patriots, without a great kick returner and without a consistent kicker, have scored multiple touchdowns on special teams. They have done so by blocking punts. They also have forced fumbles on returns giving great field position to the offense. Conversely, if your special teams unit can’t cover kicks and/or your punt is lousy, then the other team is going get great field position and score more points. I can’t say the 2019 patriots have the best special teams unit of all time, as they have struggled kicking and don’t return the ball particularly well, but I think the analysis Of best does need to include coverage.
  5. Cardinals sign LB Zach Brown (cut)

    That was quick
  6. TNF: 49ers @ Cardinals

    Showed what he can do when he gets the ball in his hands (talk about making the most of an opportunity). It’s Kingsbury’s job to find ways to get it there.
  7. Falcons release Kicker Matt Bryant; sign K Younghoe Koo

    Koo was briefly on the Patriots practice squad this year. Couldn’t dislodge Mike Nugent.
  8. Is the Patriots defense for real?

    No. Because that is a faulty premise. Chubb had more yards against New England, but 44 of those came on a run on which he fumbled. Chubb also had a fumble that turned into a New England touch down. Did he really have a better game against New England? Beckham had less yards against 49ers, but Landry more. what you saw today was a defense that continues to force turnovers, continues to draw an obscured amount of penalties, and continues to score defensive touchdowns.
  9. Is the Patriots defense for real?

    OJ: 5 receptions on 7 targets, 52 yards. No tds Landry: 5 receptions on 10 targets, 65 targets. No tds. Chubb 131 yards. Two fumbles lost. No tds.
  10. Week 8 GDT

    Zero percent chance the Browns get this OPI call over turned.
  11. Week 8 GDT

    Hes been around so long he’s learned the hard way. Young Brady certainly made mistakes, like the interception he threw from his butt.
  12. Week 8 GDT

    These Browns....
  13. Week 8 GDT

    Can the Colts trust Adam V here? They’re driving but A missed FG and XP point them in this spot.
  14. NE trades DE Michael Bennett to DAL for a conditional 6th/7th

    He is not on board with only playing 20 snaps a game. That’s the issue. He probably could play more than he was in New England. The issues were: 1) New England moved back to a 3-4 this year as it fit the personnel better- Danny Shelton, Butler, Collins, ect. all have produced very well in that system this year; 2) he did not two gap. he wanted to simply sell out to rush the passer. If you do not play in the system, you get dumped. Jamie Collins who made the pro bowl in his first New England stint started free styling in his contract year and was dumped to the Browns (Collins has, of course, returned and played exceptionally). In other words Bennett’s problem was fit.
