  1. Which is why I rated Sherman in the top 15 and not the top 5 or 10.
  2. Miami shopping OT James

    We have needs at G and preferably C, and James is the best lineman we have. Figures this dip**** FO would trade him away.
  3. Top 10-15. Sherman is spectacular, has great technique, instincts, and excellent knowledge. The ability to shut down one side of the field shouldn't be overlooked though. Considering how often offense's prefer fieldside reads and being able to erase the sidelines there is crucial. Thomas over the top was critical, yes, but there's still a lot of ground to cover for a CB with just a single high safety as opposed to two deep shells. Kam was essentially a free defender/lurker more in tune w/ Seattle's Under Front and was not used as a typical deep safety in those respects.
  4. Dolphins expected to Franchise Tag WR Jarvis Landry

    Raise your hand if you're surprised Miami mismanaged/miscalculated the Landry situation.
  5. Christian McCaffrey saves man's life

    Guessing it happened in Castlewood Canyon park. I used to go hiking there a lot and there are some steep drop offs and narrow trails. Stepped on a thin layer of snow once that thinly veiled an ice patch, nearly slipped into the canyon if not for being able to grab onto a small tree growing on the edge of the pathway. Thank goodness Mccaffrey was at the right place at the right time to help this gentlemen.
  6. Your picks for next years Hall of Fame?

    . . .
  7. Should the NFL bring back a farm system like NFL Europe?

    They would still be under the CBA restrictions as far as limited padded practices, no two-a-days, and overall it would not capitalize on their growth & development compared to a full fledged D-league.
  8. Should the NFL bring back a farm system like NFL Europe?

    Not a chance, boy. Retired at 30, no one is going to tell me how to live my life. I'm doing just fine.
  9. Should the NFL bring back a farm system like NFL Europe?

    Laugh it up, but here's what I can bring to the table and what I was hoping to find more of around here:
  10. Should the NFL bring back a farm system like NFL Europe?

    You've got to be kidding me with this garbage statement.
  11. Should the NFL bring back a farm system like NFL Europe?

    I can't imagine the NFL creating an additional program that competes with it's seasonal revenue, practice squad players, or lower level assistants that would all be available for coaching during the off season. A spring D-league makes the most sense in that regard
  12. Should the NFL bring back a farm system like NFL Europe?

    A D-league needs to happen and it being held in the offseason for continued player development would do nothing to detract from the NFL and would in turn help their final product. Too much talent is placed by the wayside, and too much quality is lost due to the inevitable and numerous injuries that happen throughout the course of an NFL season. NFL needs to get it done.
  13. Is paying big money for a QB worth it?

    It's reflective of the new CBA. How are people not getting this in relation to the analysis I posted? It actually makes a lot of sense in that respect.
  14. Giants Hire 19th Choice, Mike Shula, As OC/ QB Coach

    Thought Shula did an excellent job of tailoring the offense to Cam Newton while the OC in Carolina.
  15. The dumb argument regarding Brady vs Montana

    Touche'. I flubbed there.
  16. Johnny Manziel Wants Another Shot

    I'm on board just to see that jackhole get rocked a few more times.
  17. Is paying big money for a QB worth it?

    Bingo. Good guess.
  18. How does this SB effect Tom Brady's status of all time?

    Thanks. That's more like it.
  19. How does this SB effect Tom Brady's status of all time?

    4.3 seconds is an eternity in an NFL the pocket. Where did you dig that number from?
  20. Is paying big money for a QB worth it?

    What about winning Super Bowls? Evidence clearly points that it doesn't work to pay a QB an obscene amount of one's overall cap money. I mean, you're a Ravens fan and all, it should be obvious in how to properly allocate one's funds for a QB.
  21. Is paying big money for a QB worth it?

    Pretty easy answers to that here: In every case, Super Bowl wins = 0
  22. How does this SB effect Tom Brady's status of all time?

    That's fine. I was just enjoying the breakdown of a single play and pointing out that Brady did in fact have the time to make a proper read and throw (x2) within the time he was given
  23. How does this SB effect Tom Brady's status of all time?

    Dig is a horizontal in-breaking route (Down and In), Dag is a horizontal out-breaking route (Down and Out), the auditory appeal of what could be Dog for a possible Down and Out is the term already used for LB's. Gronk doesn't run a corner route there but rather a Dag that leverages with a slightly more diagonal flattening due to the perimeter CB taking the #1 post inside and he's looking to eat up more ground. From a presnap read, the 5 yd Dig was not the primary read, but Brady's progression should have immediately been drawn underneath as the Mike drifted away from the shallow part of the MOF in his attempt to wall the #2 (Gronk). 2.8 seconds is plenty of time to go thru progressions. A QB begins those progressions as he begins to drop and ID the defense postnsap, one doesn't start a progression read when he finishes his drop. In fact vs Quarters coverage the best way to beat it is quick passing in a Levels or a Drive concept which the Patriots ran there. Although it is a Hi-Low progression read, it's purpose is to stress the Mike (or MILB in a 3-4) with the #1 receiver running a deep vertical route up field, the #2 receiver will run a 12-15 yard Dag with a little bit of bend or stutter step to the middle of the field (which Gronk did) before cutting outside to try and hold the safety, then the #3 receiver (usually the RB or wing back) will run a flat, swing, or slip to draw the OLB or slot CB to the flats. You can also tag a shallow backside route (which was run by the weakside #2/Amendola) for an additional quick game passing concept in short yardage situations.
  24. The dumb argument regarding Brady vs Montana

    That's ironic b/c the Patriots have never won vs the NFC East in the Super Bowl.
  25. How does this SB effect Tom Brady's status of all time?

    Gronk ran the deep Dag, Hogan ran the Post. A typical deep vertical stem route b/w 12-15 yards (post, corner, dig, dag, curl, or comeback) which were the strongside patterns are timed with a 5 step drop. That wasn't the case as Gronk wasn't even into his break before Brady finished his drop, he was attempting to climb the pocket and was trying to buy time that wasn't there. Also of note, 2.8 seconds is a decent amount of time for the development of shallow routes, especially from the gun. A QB ideally makes his decision within 1.5 seconds, and the ball should be out by 2 to 2.5 seconds in those cases. A case in which we have seen here.
