    I think B he did win 4 DTs in a row... but a lot like Schott in the playoffs... I do think though if he can learn from his past failure that he can bring it home. 

    I agree, my greatest concern is that it doesn’t seem like he learns from mistakes. I know press conferences are meant to be dry these days, but we’ve been hearing “process” for seven years, and the process continues to be the same. Josh Allen raised this team to greatness, but team building and coaching philosophy doesn’t seem to change. I’m not seeing signs they’ve learned from previous failure. In fact during the offseason McD was talking about success, and how it isn’t defined by titles.

  2. I gave him a B grade, because I think he’s a really good coach, but he isn’t going to win a Super Bowl. He’ll continue to trip over himself when the stakes are highest. I’ve given in to this being my truth, but I hope I’m proven wrong.

    Allen has 38 more turnovers in just two less career games.     They are pretty much neck in neck when it comes to touchdowns and overall yards, but the turnovers, to me, are the equalizer.   Allen is the 2nd best quarterback in the league but Pat is #1.

    I never criticize Allen, and I don’t want him to ever change. However, you’re correct. It’s not what Mahomes does better, it’s what Mahones doesn’t do. Allen can win a title, and I wouldn’t take anyone else. He can be great in his own right. The difference is you’re not going to see Mahomes fumble at the one yard line trying to ice the game like Allen against the Vikings. I don’t even like saying that, but that is the difference, although I think Allen is the better athlete. Everything about Allen might be better, but mistakes separate the two.

  4. Do people even care about the Sabres during the regular season anymore? I think this has been far worse than the Bills drought. Maybe it’s because I’m a fair weather hockey fan, but I’ve found that team immensely unlikeable for years. It seems like that team couldn’t care less for the past decade.

    If the trend of Allen having a 60% completion % and a rating of about 85, along with what would be 24 passing TDs on the season under Brady in the regular season continues, or even close, there are going to be a whole lot of unhappy people and a mountain of criticism.  

     

    And the misfit of the decade is Coleman as an X Receiver. 

     

    Brady's got his work cut out for himself.  We'll never know how much McD is breathing down his neck.  

     

    This is an incredibly curious season offensively.  

     

     

     

    You sure it was Brady's that wanted that? 

     

     

    I absolutely agree, but I think people will quickly change their opinion of Brady if Josh puts up those numbers. I’m of the belief that our 2023 Brady offense isn’t a sustainable plan for the future. You must have chunk plays to succeed in today’s NFL. There’s far too much that can go wrong with ball control offense. One holding call easily can derail an entire game. That’s why big plays are so important these days. Everything, including defensive play worked in perfect unison during the second half of 2023. However, I don’t think we can keep winning with “complimentary” football over a long period of time.

    i've always thought the appeal to rochester were the suburbs.  nice homes, clean, great schools, etc.  for all those saying crime...it's in areas of the city you typically would never go.  we go to parts of downtown for restaurants and shows, but i've never felt unsafe in those areas at all.  

    I’ve always seen the Rochester suburbs as great places to raise a family, but not a great place to be young and single. That was at least my life experience in Rochester vs other cities. You can’t ask for much more out of a place to raise a family though. 

  7. Flipping TV channels, and just watched Bass miss an extra point in the 2020 AFCG. He’s been unreliable for quite a while. I don’t care about the cap, you can’t have a guy that makes an extra point an adventure.

    This is a classic case of stats not telling the entire story.

     

    Lest we forget that 27 point comeback victory in the playoffs vs the Chargers.  

    I also think Daniel Jones regressed a lot. Lawrence isn’t amazing, but I think he’s been more consistent. Jones put up some big numbers, and started to fade quickly.

    The Jests don't have to "sell tickets" -- they're the Jests, a NYC-market franchise that will always be hyped.  If they had signed Carr they would have almost certainly made the playoffs last year.  The Rodgers signing was anything but smart.

     

    I get your point, but the idea is to win a Super Bowl. Derek Carr can’t do that, but the idea was Rodgers could. That’s fine if you disagree, but I don’t think you bother with a player like Carr in the Jets position. If you’re going to waste time on a player like Carr, you’d be better off drafting a rookie. The rookie might give you a chance at a title. Everyone knows Carr isn’t that guy. The playoffs are never really the point. Winning a championship is the real goal.

    To be fair it was reported in the NYC media at the time that JD and Saleh wanted Carr who is also a big upgrade over Wilson at the QB position. But Woody had to get involved and overruled them because he wanted Rodgers. This is all on Woody Johnson if things don't work out.

    Johnson isn’t a great owner, and he interferes too much, but I’m with him on the Rodgers signing. It’s easy to pick on in hindsight, but Rodgers had a greater upside that Derek Checkdown Carr doesn’t have at all. Carr wasn’t going to sell tickets, or be a real franchise QB.

    A good friend of mine’s twenty one year old son was murdered while visiting Mexico as have many many others. The issue here is not the per capita murder ‘rate’ but who are the targets. It’s VERY rare that a tourist is murdered while visiting the United States. 

    This country also varies greatly by zip code. Americans mostly know what part of their city can be dangerous, and how people find that trouble. Buffalo has its share of issues for example, but I’m not stressed out in most locations. In South America even the glamorous decent looking neighborhoods aren’t very safe.
     

    As far as per capita crime rates, I’m not sure how some have such inaccurate information. It actually is far higher in South America than the US. There’s a reason that survey’s in places like Brazil indicate the majority would like to leave their country. Brazil like much of South America has a fun culture, with people who enjoy life, but even locals don’t feel safe at any time.

    Many people texting and driving is absolutely insane. I think that should be treated like a DUI if they caught. That causes so many accidents that hurt and kill people.

    The number of drugs that aren’t easily detectable in a roadside breathalyzer type test is another one of my biggest concerns. I’m seeing people who looked absolutely cooked on the road more frequently. 

  13. At the risk of sounding abrasive, did anyone actually watch USC football? I’m seeing a lot of criticism about Williams’ late season meltdowns USC. It sounds like something people are parroting from random pundits. USC the team had late season meltdowns, but it wasn’t always Williams’ fault. This Lincoln Riley coached team simply can’t play defense. The USC offense often put plenty of points on board, but lost high scoring games. Williams looked good more often than not. I’m not promising he’ll be a success, but I can’t go along with this narrative.

    I watched him play as a freshman at Oklahoma and he was incredible. He has a very high football IQ & is extremely competitive. I hated to see him follow Lincoln Riley to USC.   I believe he also has the physical attributes to be successful in the NFL. I will be surprised if he doesn’t become a very good NFL QB & I am very happy he’s in the NFC.  

    He can make throws that other guys simply can’t. That’s what separates him from players like Fields coming out of college. The ability to make spectacular throws seems to be a defining characteristic of successful NFL QB’s these days.

    I'll never understand the love for Chan.  The guy was a horrible head coach.  He lost me forever when he punted from the opponent's 34 yard line.  

    Agree, I also disagree with the idea that Chan was a brilliant offensive mind. He made his name as a position coach with the 80’s Broncos. If you look at his other stops, he didn’t have very successful offensive teams. Fitz just did what he does during Gailey’s time in Buffalo. He put together a stretch of magical games, and had a decent first half of the 2011 season. That’s what Fitz did at every stop after. Gailey didn’t do much after his time in Buffalo, and did little in the years before. That doesn’t sound like a guy with anything innovative.

    All the marijuana defenders always flock to these stories, haha.

     

    Sorry. It is still a federally banned substance, against the law in many states, and prohibited by the NFL.

     

    It is completely idiotic of any player in the NFL to take a risk like that.

    I don’t fully agree with everything I think you’re getting at, but the last paragraph couldn’t be more true. It doesn’t matter what side of the legalization argument you’re on. I’m sure there was a lot of stupidity involved in this arrest. States that haven’t legalized aren’t going out looking for offenders. People get busted when they do something incredibly stupid.

     

    Things like driving around at 2am with smoke rolling out of their car windows. The type of stuff no one should be doing, regardless of the legal status. This type of obnoxious behavior is the stuff that gets people in trouble.

    I started to watch and it was interesting, but I wish there were a transcript to skim over.

     

    I don't do podcasts or videos--I am a reader.

    Agree, most people waste words when speaking. Reading gives us the luxury of skimming over those things. I’ve watched a few videos on various things such as auto repair, only to discover a twenty minute video that could have explained the solution in twenty seconds.

    WUT? He laughed at a joke about his billionaire money launderer (funneled money to his TB12 enterprise to avoid salary cap restrictions), Robert Kraft, then awkwardly and unprecedently leaned in and told a comedian "don't say that s#!t again." Okay. Yeah, that's confident energy at a roast when a 100% true topic is raised. Defending him is a funny bit. 

    Celebs typically have fragile ego’s. I’m fully convinced most jokes at these roasts are shared with the person being honored before they are read aloud. I think it’s akin to believing any “reality” television.
