  1. If you don't personally know and work with the individuals then you can't gauge their "leadership skills," and how much those contribute to 52 other individuals performing better or worse than they would have otherwise. Even being able to judge leadership skills, also continuing that argument into how it affects teammates is an extremely flimsy argument. At that point, you just sound like you're imagining things and projecting them in. Explaining performances by the narratives you've built in your head based on that one time you saw one person yell at another person on the sideline.
  2. I mostly agree. But with some exceptions... - O-line was not great at all in '08 and '09, and then a handful of other years it dealt with injuries, but been mostly extremely strong the last few years (at least as pass blockers, run blocking leaves something to be desired) - He's had great receivers most of his career except the last three years. 2018-2019 really was been mostly Adams + randos. By 2020 Big Bob emerged as a good TE threat, and Lazard and MVS.. improved. So there was some relief there. - They used a ton of high round picks on defense over the course of his career,
  3. Payton's surprise on-side kick after halftime was not this crazy, insane, super risky play. They were only down by 4, and they wagered going down by 7 or 11 vs. stealing a possession against a team that would not have predicted the play at all. Even down by 11, you're not out of the game at all if there's still almost a full half to play. I'm not saying there was no risk; it was a gamble. But I think that play gets more credit because of the stage it was on, and the fact that they won.
  4. Short answer: Easy Yes. Longer answer: After Rodgers' good, but not worth his salary level play in 2019, combined with his age, I totally understood the Love pick. I expected, and I imagine management expected Rodgers would stay around that 2019 level play for 2 more years and then they could move on with relatively few bumps. But Rodgers turned it around, and is now playing hardball and putting management in a tough spot. I think Rodgers wants more years on his contract and some signs that they'll be building around him. And he's not going to cooperate with restructures or anything
  5. I like the current system. I helps me more easily identify players.
  6. That's everyone in the league though. I know the title of the thread uses the term "pressure" but if we're talking about most pressure I think people would basically equate that with "the hot seat," in one manner of speaking or another.
  7. Lol, the dude who has coached his team to two consecutive NFC Championships, and two consecutive 13-3 seasons, coming off a season where he coached the league's best offense and the league MVP... yeah that dude doesn't have the most pressure on him. The team could go 3-13 next year and he'd probably still have a job. You're acting like 0-2 in NFCCGs is this awful thing, when you've got other coaches who can't even get that far.
  8. I mean collectively between the last two years, only the Chiefs have been better than the Packers. I didn't suddenly forget those 49ers games from last year.
  9. Packers shouldn't significantly change much. Rodgers will remain their QB. They'll maybe make a defensive coaching change. As always, they'll draft for what they expect they'll need in 2-3 years in the future. They'll try again next year, and hopefully have a better end to the season. If they don't, well that's football. They still have an MVP level quarterback and an otherwise young and healthy team. Over the past two years, only the Chiefs have been better than them.
  10. At the very least, this three year stretch of his will go down as some of the all-time best Quarterback play. But I think when you get into the question of all-time great, you have to approach that question as, "If they retired today then where do they stand?" I think longevity matters a bit more in that conversation. I have no doubt he'll remain a high performing quarterback for the foreseeable future. But we've seen that a bad leg injury, or concussion or two can greatly knock some players down a notch or two. And the Chiefs will inevitably begin to lose players to free agency as the
  11. Not on the level of the Texans, but the Vikings breakdown in 2010 was sort of great to watch as a rival fan. - Favre played badly. - They gave up a 3rd round pick for Moss, who then didn't gel with the team and was cut a few weeks later. - HC Brad Childress was fired a few weeks after that. - As their season collapsed, their stadium literally collapsed. - Favre got injured on the frozen field they had to play on as a substitute. - They finished 6-10 after having been a Superbowl contender the previous year. They went 3-13 the year after that and wouldn't go back t
  12. He's still a good QB, but if you can't see his lack of arm strength is often limiting what plays they call then I'm not sure what to tell you. His velocity is way down from what it used to be, and it's lower than what you'll see from most pro QBs. This effects the windows that he can throw into, and then aids defenders in closing gaps between them and receivers. If 2020 Brees were a draft prospect, based purely on his current physical ability, he would be a low round pick, with the expectation that he'd be a back up, not a starter. He can make up for some of his physical weakness with his
  13. No, that's just what happens when father time catches up to you. Brees' arm has been on a steady decline really showing itself even last year. I'm not saying the pressure doesn't factor in. But he was also missing throws when he wasn't under duress.
