  1. Biggest cause for Goffs improvement

    McVay. Supporting cast. Experience. McVay. From what I have seen and heard, this wunderkind has a phenomenal football mind. He built a system from the ground up to play to Goff's strengths while shielding him from his weaknesses. He taught Goff how to be/think/read in ways to be a success on the field. And he tooled the offense to run through the run game, which helped tremendously in Goffs development by keeping defenses honest of Goff Goff off his ***. He is, without a doubt, the top reason for the fantastic rate of improvement. Supporting cast. Whitworth was probably the most important addition to the offense. Moreso than any receiver. He anchored the line and gave MvVay the ability to do some shuffling around on the line to produce a decent overall unit. Whitworth made it possible to give Goff the time he needed to make plays. The addition of Coop and Woods can't be ignored, though. While neither of them are Randy Moss, they catch everything you throw at them. Which was such a breath of fresh air after watching drive after drive stall the year before due to badly timed drops. Those three additions gave Goff 2 of the 4 key ingredients he was missing his rookie year. 1. An offensive line he could trust to give him time. 2. Wrs that could catch. The other 2 being a running game and, of course, a good coach. Experience. The potential was visible in his rookie season. He needed experience. He needed to catch up to the speed of the NFL game. He is still learning. And still has a way to go. He is still raw at times. However, he looks better and better every time he takes the field. Steady improvement. Thats the name of the game. All that said, experience is not going to move your game forward as quickly as we saw Goff improve this year. He gained experience THROUGH the year. But the catalysts for the improvement were more about coaching and supporting cast, which led to the invaluable experience he needed.
  2. Better Player? Barry Sanders or Randy Moss

    Who cares? This isnt a comparison of elite WRs of this or the last decade. This is a comparison between Moss and Sanders. So unless you're going to argue that Sanders was full of himself and a diva, who cares?
  3. Better Player? Barry Sanders or Randy Moss

    Much of the argument is based on intangibles. I dont see why it should stop short of how a player conducts himself.

    I really need to get back into that. I fell off despite the fact that I thought it was hilarious.

    I started losing interest around episode 4. I am going to try and push through,
  6. Is paying big money for a QB worth it?

  7. Should the Bills Trade Up For a QB?

    I think it would cost them more than the 4 picks you are offering to get one of the top 3 QBs. You would probably have to throw in another high pick or package of picks next year as well. Moving up from the 22nd spot to the top 5 would be prohibitively expensive. And unless there is an Andrew Luck waiting to get drafted I just dont see it. If the Bills guy (if they have a "their guy") drops to 8 or later, sure... pull the trigger. If you see your guy, and you have confidence in him, pull the trigger.

    Which means what? I am not arguing that anyone is guaranteed to be a victim of violence if they live in those states or near those states. I am saying those states are dangerous. And that the region in question is more dangerous than you are suggesting when you say it isn't any different than other areas in developing countries. That simply isn't true. And the fact that you know people who lived there that haven't had trouble doesn't dispute that. Venezuela is an incredibly dangerous country. I guarantee you that you can find plenty of people that have lived their entire lives in that country and have never had a problem. That doesn't mean it isn't still an incredibly dangerous country.

    So then you know damn well Panama aint anywhere near as dangerous as the west coast of Mexico. And all those countries I mentioned are safer. We are talking about relative safety here. And if youre arguing that Panama isn't any safer than the west coast of Mexico, then I dont care how much time you have spent in Panama, you dont know what youre talking about. I'm not arguing Panama is a crime free utopia. But it is far from what is going on in that part of Mexico.

    No... they arent all the same. And I have no idea why people keep trying to claim that. If you venture outside "safe zones" in Panama, Paraguay, Uraguay or Chile you are not in as much danger as you are in Sinaloa, Michoacan and the rest of the pacific coast states in Mexico. Whatever happened to you in Panama was a rarity. I lived in Panama and travelled all over the interior. Travelled back and forth on the TI day and night. Never heard of that going on. Never seen it. Not saying things like that dont happen in Panama, mind you. Hell, they happen here. Just saying it is nothing like the west coast of Mexico. Venezuela and Sao Paulo are poopholes. So you are probably going to get the poophole experience when you travel through them.

    You beat that drum every time the subject comes up, OD. Neither of those statements you made are true. Mexico is unsafe for anyone. It is MORE unsafe if you are involved in the business. But you are still unsafe even if you aren't. Particularly in SI, MI and points in between. Puerto Vallarta is far enough out of the way to avoid much of the danger as long as the cartels decide to leave PR alone. But you can't step outside that insular community without accepting very real risk. Particularly if you are an american. There are plenty of safer developing nations., depending on what you consider "developing." Chile, Costa Rica, Uraguay, Paraguay, Panama and Belize are all safer. Some are FAR safer. And those are just developing countries in our neck of the woods.

    Growing up in SoCal, Puerto Vallarta was always a top destination in Mexico. It's gorgeous. But being between Sinaloa and Michoacan would make me too nervous. And Colima, Jalisco and Nayarit are sketchy too. Just not as sketchy as SI and MI. I mean, I am sure if you stay in and around the resorts it aint that bad. But... it's just too sketchy for me. I am a bit of an overcautious puss though. And yeah, you might want to hammer out those details with wifey before you start packing your bags. lol

    Panama is a prime expat destination for retirees. I lived there for a year when I was younger. I would retire there in a heartbeat. But if I could, I would rather retire in Spain. I would rather shuffle around Europe than central/south america. If I had the money I would buy a house in Barcelona or Valencia today and use it as a rental property until I was ready to retire.
