  1. He's a good short-area route runner, but I think that the short-area stuff to Edelman and White isn't sustainable against press-man for a whole game provided that your offense is scoring points the way the Chiefs can score. You may be right, however, that they have plays in the tank. I'd be a lot more worried about Gronk if I didn't feel that KC's pass rush could keep NE in max protect fairly reliably.
  2. He can still operate an offense at an efficient clip. I'm always reminded of an early episode of Boston Legal when discussing 2018 Brady: --------------------------- Denny Crane: I’m still a good lawyer. Paul Lewiston: Yes. You are. You remember Muhammad Ali’s last fight? We had ringside seats. He lost so pathetically to Larry Holmes. We were so crushed. The tragedy that night, Denny, wasn’t that he couldn’t still box. He could. The tragedy was that he still thought he was Ali. You’re a good lawyer, my friend. You’re just not Denny Crane. --------------------------- The reality that many fans still don't see is this: It's not that Brady can't still play QB. He can. He's a good QB; he's just not Tom Brady anymore. And if you force him to beat you by loading up against the run and denying him the easy, underneath stuff, he can't beat you by himself anymore.

    Probably because Coach D took the job thinking he was working for McDaniels, and he wants the chance to know who he's going to work for

    He would have to be Daboll's number one choice I'd think I'm shocked he's available
  5. Depends on how he's used. A mobile QB will help the run game if the offense incorporates RPO and zone-read concepts that freeze second-level defenders and delay their run fits. Buffalo did almost none of that.
  6. You don't even have to focus that; just don't give him the easy underneath throws. Make him beat you deep; he's not going to do it. He'll hold the ball for as long as he thinks he can without getting hit, and then he'll turf it. Did it all day against Detroit and Tennessee (as well as Pittsburgh and Jax to a lesser extent). Teams like the Chargers are so afraid of getting beat by Tom Brady that they aren't willing to play defense against him. Note to KC: press man coverage, 8 in the box, blitz like crazy.
  7. I feel like I'm reading my own thoughts here.
  8. That's precisely what they do, and it's exactly what the Chargers didn't do. Brady isn't the Brady that he was even 2 years ago, but he can still pick you apart if you give him the easy short stuff. Make him throw the ball over your head.
  9. Stupid soft zone garbage. NE doesn't have a WR that can reliably beat man coverage, so naturally it makes sense to play zone all game
  10. The Chargers walked into it badly. They did the very worst thing they could possibly do: let NE run the ball down their throats and give Brady the cheap throws. That's the literal opposite of what every team that beat NE this season did. 7 DBs all game long against a run-first team? Brutal

    Morse is going to get PAID in FA. Paradis will very likely be going back to Denver (unless he really wants out), so Morse stands to be the only center on the FA market--a position that saw guys like Ryan Jensen and Weston Richburg get $9-10M AAV last offseason. Morse will probably get $11-12M AAV from someone that needs a center. LDT ain't goin' nowhere--the time to trade for a Chiefs' guard was last pre-season when they moved Ehinger for a song.
  12. Getting a lot of mileage out of this comment on this topic I see. See my response to the last time you said this...it still applies

    Not sure how much Sean McVay would look like Sean McVay without an absurdly good cast of characters to work with, but that's a fair point
