  1. Yes and no. People run choice routes, but not many are running choice stuff at this intricate level. I see a ton of RPOS and slot fade, mesh rail stuff. Based on my experience, typically at the high school level, it is maybe two or three options. In college the same thing. Then I think the challenge is to find players who can read coverages and have the talent to play in the NFL.
  2. Really good stuff here. This is vintage Tom Brady Ehrhardt-Perkins stuff. I think one of the most important things is continuity with receivers or finding guys who have experience with these choice concepts. Not too many players come out of college with this type of knowledge these days, so it will be interesting where they go in the offseason.
  3. I was gonna make a joke about drops, but I see it has already been covered.
  4. That is part of it, but Purdy also has ridiculous skill players who can take it to the house on any play. Allen has to play perfect football to win. Purdy was solid but he did not do a lot on those three-yard passes to Deebo and McCaffrey that they turned into huge gains. I think part of it is a defense problem, the other part of it is a talent issue. Diggs is a really good player, but he is route running technician....He isn't going to catch a slant, break three tackles, stiff-arm a guy, and dive into the endzone. We need offensive skill talent.
  5. Well Steve Wilks is a McDermott disciple, so let’s see what he does differently.
  6. After watching the Cowboys game last night, the Bills match up well with them. However, if the flags fly the way they did last night and last week it's going to be almost impossible to beat them. I also like the matchup with the Chiefs honestly. I think they can do it, but they are going to need some luck. And lady luck has not been on their side. I will say that no one will want to play them in the playoffs, so just get in and see what happens.
  7. I know some coaches who would have kicked a field goal with 7 seconds left and no time out. I love Carroll’s guts.
  8. That day the Bengals beat the Ravens is up there. The Andy Dalton-Boyd hook-up.
  9. He's really bad. That is why the PFF stuff is interesting to look at, but honestly has very little merit.
  10. The Vikings did the same thing last night during that God-awful football game. The Vikings were doing a great job being exotic and forcing Fields into bad turnovers. Then up 1 with the game on the line, the Vikes rush three and play a soft shell and let the Bears who had done basically nothing all game march down the field and win the game. It's just so inept and embarrassing and it hurts me as a fan that the Bills are that dumb as well.
  11. They sold a whole story about him being a deep threat and a complete receiver and they just have not bothered using him that way. They are just using as a gadget guy which is just dumb and amounts to a huge waste of money. Now maybe he is terrible, but they haven't even tried to use him the way he was used in New Orleans. Somehow Harty has actually outproduced McKittrick this year, albeit for a much bigger contract.
  12. He's more milquetoast than McDermott. I love Reich but he is not the answer.
  13. I hate to say it but Belichick gets this team over the hump. Basically, sell your soul for a Super Bowl. I'm good with that. Dream scenario, do everything you can to trade for Sean McVay...ownership shares, ton of money, or whatever. He would be the perfect match for Allen. In terms of current offensive assistants, Ben Johnson is very intriguing for the reasons Gunner mentioned above. The Bengals Brian Callahan is interesting to me as a candidate. He has worked under a number of different guys including Kubiak, Zac Taylor, John Fox, Gruden and he's worked with QBs like Stafford and Peyton Manning, and obviously Burrow. I would think he would bring his dad with him, the best OL coach in the business. An offensive-minded guy who has learned from a number of different systems and has been around the game his entire life. But McDermott is Mike Zimmer with less situational awareness. He has to go imo.
  14. I think he needs to turn this around and get to the AFC championship to keep his job. To dig all the way out of the hole and fail in the playoffs makes it a no in my opinion.
  15. Brady tried to be too cute early, but I like what he did. He put speed on the field and called plays that took advantage of their speed. That's Shakir, Harty, and Ty Johnson. I know it was the one big play from Johnson, but he's big and fast. I would like to see Harty be more involved. I feel like there is some meat on that bone. Less Davis is definitely a good thing. I also loved what he did on the touchdown to Cook, the presnap movement, annoying formation and it was a great design.
  16. Douglas needs to play. Every single one of these other deadline acquisitions will get right in there. It is silly if they hold him out and it makes the cost more exorbitant if he sits a game.
  17. I just remember them really liking him pre draft for some reason and him going earlier than it seemed he would. Really good scheme fit. And he’s an aggressive energy player, which is a good thing. He brings an edge to the defense.
  18. Have to pack this away fro next draft season when Beane uses mid-late picks to get up and get guys he targeted. I'm fine with his strategy. That's two more draft picks who didn't make the team.
  19. He’s the guy I would have taken #1, just as I would have taken Herbert, and even Trey Lance a few years ago. Huge upside with Richardson but he is raw. To me if you are taking a shot on a QB early in the draft you swing for the fences. Yeah there is a good chance you strike out, but why settle for a game manager? In terms of his understanding of the game, apparently he knocked that stuff out of the park. They don’t do the wonderlic anymore, but according to reports, Richardson crushed the new tests. I would probably let Minshew start the first 4-8 games, but I think Richardson will be, by far, the best QB out of this draft.
  20. Cook and Kincaid. I also think Connor McGovern is going to be very good. He looked good to me vs the Colts.
  21. It should be Jacksonville. They want a running mate to take some usage off of Ettienne. Good OL, really good defense, an emerging QB, and a really good offensive coach...a return to Florida (even though its Jacksonville). That's what I would do.
