  1. Allen 99 Throw power... lets goooooooo
  2. It's tough to really determine. Belichick has made it such an importance to fit into their culture. Hard work - do your job. etc. Everyones so accountable Brady has created a persona of just, an ultimate competitor. The guy will do anything to win, he doesn't care about his numbers, or your numbers for that matter. It also rubs off on other players that their QB is just a total gamer who doesn't care about anything but winning.
  3. Yeah - cool that they make their own olive oil though. 3500 bottle wine cellar and a tasting room. Seems like a cool place but not a place to live all the time - and for that amount i feel like you need to be a lot wealthier to afford this kind of estate.
  4. I just hate the pick plays like that - i guess because i can contact you in that area its ok? but its still a strange gray area. If they add PI to challenges i expect like 90% of them to be rub routes.
  5. He probably is - his playoff numbers are insanely good too. Last 3 years, 8-1 in the playoffs 66% comp, averaging 358 per game - they scored a ton of TDs on the ground this past year, but that all opens up because brady basically carves you up unless you play nickel. And if you're in nickel they just abuse you with the ground game. One of these things is not like the other.... 4806 50/8 68.9% 16-0 vs. 3693 21/11 63.4% 11-5
  6. i suppose not that obscure... but rex ryan was living in the building over from me when i lived in regency court a few years ago. He had just moved to buffalo and i think the apartment was fully furnished so he could be by the stadium while he was getting his house together. I remember seeing his car on deadspin and the same day i got home from work and this giant bills truck is in my like 12 car parking lot between the 2 buildings. Ran into him a couple of times - never got to tell him how utterly disappointing his tenure here was.
  7. Im not a big fan of blocking before the ball is thrown in general. I know the rules are like - within a yard its OK, but i don't really think it should ever be OK.
  8. Everyone has a full 90 right now - its kind of hard to find trade partners when teams have like 7 running backs a piece. Pittsburgh and KC look like good fits, but LA isn't stupid enough to trade to afc contenders. Gonna have to wait to see if some players get injured. Their depth is OK, but if they make a move i'd try and grab someone like duke johnson to play 1b if ekeler becomes the full time starter. Before last year i'd agree, but he was pretty good last year.
  9. No - but even 20 guaranteed is more than the 5 he's guaranteed right now.
  10. Yea - deferred money is a big thing agents hate. The nationals big harper offer of 10 and 300 was actually kind of BS, since a ton of salary was deferred payments. Owners are always about that bottom line.
  11. Considering most running backs really only get 2 contracts - and he's averaged about 1200 total yards and 10 TDs per year. I don't really blame him. Hard to determine his value - he's not gurley or bell, but he's also 26 and if he plays out this year he's subject to a tag year - thats 11 million in 2019. Assuming he plays well this year and gets tagged next year he'd make approximately 16-17 million. He's now 28 - the team will have drafted his replacement and "his best days are behind him" so he ends up with a modest mark ingram style deal (3yr 15 mil 6 guaranteed). He probably plays out 2 and makes 10. So he made 26 million - if he plays well and doesnt get hurt. He signs a big deal now in the realm of the bell 4 and 50 - he gets 25ish guaranteed at signing. If he plays well he probably makes more of that 50, or signs a 2nd deal when he gets cut - if he doesn't play well (or gets hurt) he still makes the same 26 he would have made by playing out his 5th year option/tag. From a business perspective running backs kind of have to be selfish...
  12. Both hold the ball too long just like Tyrod. Allen needs to improve the rhythm passing, and stop with the hero ball at times. There's a lot to improve and a lot to like. The o-line makes his 2018 season kind of hard to evaluate, as do the lack of consistent WR threats. I hope to see some pretty stark improvements this year. LJ had a ton of designed runs like kaepernick - that typically works when you drive the ball down the field more. You open up deep outs, fly routes, etc by forcing them to keep extra guys in the box. Greg Roman is the O-coordinator... who was coordinator with Alex Smith, Kaep, Tyrod etc. He's likely going to continue running LJ at least 10 times a game, and hes going to emphasize hitting receivers outside the numbers. LJs sack% last year was almost 9 and i expect it to hover around 9-10 next year as Roman typically seems to coach a protect the ball type of offense. He also struggled in the playoff game when his team was behind and he was forced to take out the read-option stuff. 7 sacks, 1 pick, 3 fumbles. Also something to keep in mind - he only threw 3 picks and had a 1.8% INT rate... but he fumbled 12 times and 3 more times in the playoff game. That is a LOT of fumbles.
  13. Same agent is probably more like it. Teams have to pay them the full amount it all comes down to offset language.
  14. If their coach is good - sure. Last time they made it under Gase, they played a weak schedule - beat like 1 team with a winning record, and had their best roster in like a decade. They also went 4-2 in the division which is unlikely from them this year when i look at that team.
  15. Disagree on the teams aspect - at least regarding punt returners. hyde averaged 8 yards and led the team - as basically our designated punt catcher Roberts averaged 14 yards, had a TD on 23 returns and fair caught 27. Teams may punt away from him because hes pretty nimble. He has 5 career return TDs. He destroyed us in that bills jets game last year too with the injured kicker.
