  1. Brady made Belichick, and it will be obvious this year. Give me a break with this magic man in his helmet telling him what to do, the guy did the same thing in Michigan, he's just that good. He is clearly having no problem in TB throwing lasers all over the field on a dime. The Bucs are instant contenders for the SB. https://youtu.be/7EPG0KQO-T8
  2. Leave the kid alone already. It's done, over with, and everyone has moved on...except this sleazy reporter.
  3. Mahomes arm is very, very, powerful...a top 3 for sure...but...I have to give the edge to Allen on this one.
  4. Until Allen thrusts himself into a solid upper middle/late top 10 Qb ranking, this will be the take. This team has all the tools, the real question remains at Qb. This is a real prove it year for Allen.
  5. They are the best in franchise history at their positions, and hall of famers to boot. Im fine with it. As much as I love Thurman, OJ was better. Reed is the 17th most productive Wr in NFL history. No way he gets removed.
  6. Split with the jets, sweep the patriots, split with dolphins. We arent beating the chiefs, we arent losing to the raiders, we arent losing to the broncos.
  7. 8:40 mark - Issues that plagued him from the beginning of time, continue to plague him now. Take it as you may. Footwork... https://gfycat.com/liquidwealthybutterfly Footwork... https://gfycat.com/ajarwarmaustraliankelpie Footwork...
  8. Wow, amazing. My buddy has the ps VR, but everything Im seeing is leaning more towards Oculus, currently. Although, the new PS5 is going to drop at the end of the year, and I believe they are working on a whole new vr headset, this could mean a drastic jump in the technology. Madden in 1st person Vr? Probably be pretty amazing.
  9. I dont know...i think the adrenaline got going in some of these old folk.
  10. Id buy it...its legit, and he's done exactly what he's said he's done. It will sell for that easily. I'd be lobbying for a signature on the wall or something. Tom Brady's Escalade Limo will sell no problem. The dude just auctioned a game day experience with dinner afterwards for over 1 million. Like it or not, he's the GOAT.🐐 Anything he sells will be purchased, and probably at a premium.
  11. 4,902 yards, 30Tds, 11ints, 99.7 Qb rating, and is entering his prime. And for people who want to bring up the Dallas game, get real. He put up 355 yards against us, a top 3 defense in the league. All while completing 65%, for 7.2, and 2tds. 3 straight years now he has jumped up his game with BIG measurable improvements. Now that Garrett is gone, he will thrive under McCarthy. This is a no brainer to me. If he plays tagged, and Allen shows little growth this year, you go get him next year and pay him.
  12. Apparently a company called Strivr is leading the way in this right now.
  13. Virtual Reality....its out there, but one place im not seeing it used in a place it should be the most, pre draft process. Take Qbs for example. They been measured, tested, broke down film with and questioned. But when are they going to be put in the Vr gear and tested with real NFL game speed before they even step foot on an NFL field? I think the VR is going to revolutionize the draft process in the near future and we will see far less busts in the league. When the time arrives, the most important grade a NFL prospect could receive could be a "VR grade." Im actually pretty shocked some form of this doesn't already exist.
  14. Ive been to eight home games since 1998, not bad for living out of state. (not including preseason, ive been to two) In all my time there, get this..... I've never watched Buffalo lose. I've seen some crazy wins up there. In 08 i watched Trent Edwards lead buffalo from a 9 point deficit in under 6 mins to win against the Raiders. Another favorite game was 05 against the Chiefs, we were picked to lose because of the red hot chiefs offense coming to town, but instead i watched our defense stifle trent green and crew, while Holcomb got wrecked and I got to watch Losman do what he did best....multiple bombs to Evans. I got to watch the last run of Fred Jacksons career in a Bills uniform against the steelers in preseason. A lot of great memories in that Stadium!!! Poor Dick, he looked like he aged 20 years by the time he was done here.
  15. Im with you on this. I don't think its even a comparison really. Every qb in this division is unproven. Fitz is the best of the group by far and that's not saying a whole lot. Darnold and Allen are striking no fear in anyone. Stidham is completely untested....and the rookie, Tua, is waiting in the wings. As of right now, this absolutely looks like the worse group of starting Qbs in the same division that I can remember.
  16. Sure, but I would consider it to be more of personal progress than anything. Compared to his peers his growth is minimal. Last in completion %. Last in passing TDs for Qbs who started 16 games. Last in passing yards out of every QB who played 16 games. Last in longest pass out of every Qb who played 16 games. Last in passing yards per game out of every Qb who played 16 games. It's a whole lot of last places for someone who made relatively good progress. His ultimate comparison is against his peers. Realistically he can have small improvements year after year. If he moves into 28th this year in all those categories, its growth, do we stick with him? If he moves into 25th the following year, its growth, do we stick with him? Do you think it's realistic that he jumps to 16-20 in all these categories this season based on what he's done this far? Personally I believe he needs to finish the season in that bracket for me to consider it a successful season with signs of growth.
  17. You're missing my point. My comment was referring to Watson's "twelve infants" experiment. But since you're asking...can a coach teach you to be a professional dart thrower, as in, do it for a living? or...a professional billiard? or a bowler? Just throwing out professions that don't require a ton of physical prowess, but demand precision skill sets. These are examples of things you obviously need some natural talent that can then be honed with practice and training.
  18. Brady was the 🐐... But, if Belly is as masterful as many believe, he's not trying to win this year. His goal has been to build a defense, tank with Stidham, then draft Lawerence. Brady Round 2....with a defense in place.
  19. Coming from a guy who's name is Buffalo Barbarian, I beg to differ.
  20. And what's wrong with that? Would you not agree Watson had a better receiver which in turn would lead to a drop off scenario? This is a theoretical analysis, which I stated in the third paragraph, that has to do with Qb/Wr relationships. The main topic of the thread is "who makes who."
  21. Should I just use ANY/A to determine? I know its your favorite.
  22. A lot of controversy has always surrounded the question, who makes who? Is it the Qb responsible for the Wr's output, or is it the Wr responsible for the Qb's output? In all actuality it's a bit of both. But, if the data is analyzed and scrutinized, what would it look like and what would it mean? Is there a way to determine based on data who is more responsible for the production and if so, what would it look like? I ask this question because I fully expect many fans with logical capabilities to bring various facts and charts to the forefront to support their theory. I know many on this forum will do so. This will inject much data from multiple different view points. This I believe will bring us closer to the question, who makes who? Based on pure theoretical analysis, I will attempt to answer the question, who makes who. I will supply two graphs as a visual aid to assist in my theory. The first graph I will refer to as "the fall off." The fall off graph, as seen above, represents what I would expect to see when a receiver is more responsible for overall yardage production than a Qb. In this graph, the purple represents a stand out receiver. An elite receiver, so to speak. This receiver would make up the brunt of production based purely on his receiving abilities. The drop off represents the fall off in receiver talent. The elite receiver is capable of making catches that normally wouldn't be made, example, errant throws, one handed grabs, circus catches, etc. This fall off would represent the rest of the receiving corps as lagging behind the top receiver, but is that because those receivers are inadequate receivers or that the top receiver is simply more capable of making much more difficult catches? In theory, I would expect the results shown in graphs number 2, dubbed "the decline," as results that would better represent a Qb more responsible for production than a receiver. The graph above would show clearly there is a number one receiver, but the production is more even distributed among the rest of the receiving group. The theory behind this would suggest the Qb is more responsible for the passing production than the receiver, as he is elevating the game play of all those around him on a consistent basis. On time, accurate passes would increase the production of nearly every Wr in the NFL. There is a clear number 1, but the fall of is not as drastic for the rest, because they all would be catching mostly catchable passes they would be expected to catch. The gradual decline would suggest a decline in WR talent in terms of not catching passes they shouldn't have caught. Better WR's catch passes they shouldn't have normally caught. The cream rises to the top, so to speak. Of course there are other variables that are involved in this. Rooke WRs, new Wr's to the team, rapport between Wr and Qb, and receivers that are simply, not that good. But in pure terms of trying to evaluate who is more responsible for the production, I would expect to see graphs that are similar to these. Thoughts?
