      I know a few people are getting logged out too quickly. I don't have the answer to that yet.   However, one change that occurred is that there is no longer a log in name and a separate display name. The upgrade discarded the log in name and now uses the display name. So, to log in:   Username: <display name> Password: <your password>   If you need to contact me to find out what your display name is use: Contact Us  and we can get things sorted out.

Gruden on Peterman

Recommended Posts

This if from back in Preseason but found interesting to re-read:

http://www.newyorkupstate.com/buffalo-bills/index.ssf/2017/08/what_jon_gruden_had_to_say_about_buffalo_bills_qb_nathan_peterman.html

 

The last paragraph pretty much sums it up, not saying this is Peterman, but positive it's not TT:

"I think it's pretty easy to see the teams that sustain winning, they have one," Gruden said. "They have a guy that can make the throws. The guy that can dominate at the line of scrimmage. The guy who doesn't waste plays. These guys are coaches on the field. They have football aptitude. They have the great arm quickness, they have arm strength. They just have a way of making the other players better. They make the defense better because the defense they fight harder knowing if we just get this guy the ball back, we have a chance. The offensive line plays better because they don't want this man hit. The meetings are better, the practices are better, life is better when you have a blue chipper playing quarterback in the NFL. You even have a chance to sell some luxury boxes and jerseys too. Man I'm envious of some of these guys that have been able to coach a quarterback like (Ben) Roethlisberger for that many years or Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees. That's an envious position for those guys."

Gruden loves every QB.

It's not what he said about Peterman that was most interesting - it was what he said about how a "blue chip" QB makes everything better.  

Exactly. That paragraph that was quoted wasn't about any QB on our roster, or any specific QB at all.

Gruden sez:  "this guy, this guy right there is one of the ALL TIME GREATEST EVER!!!!!"  (for 22 players during every broadcast.

 

Gruden would have called Tyrod's pathetic checkdowns "the catch of the century!!!!" as well

True.  But he also carried 4 QB's on his roster at times -- suggesting he didn't love any one of them that much.

Just watch his QB show on ESPN where he talks chalk with draft prospects.  What he did as HC is another matter.

So Gruden says good QBs make your whole team better and your fans happier. 

 

That's some earth-shattering stuff.

Gruden has been very outspoken about Peterman.  Here's another such article from the Boston Globe.

"the best quarterback, I think, that's ever played."

 

He doesn't exactly mention Peterman by name but I think we can definitely rule out the possibility that he means Tyrod. You do the math.

Gruden compares him to Andy Dalton.... not exactly the guy I would chase after if I wanted a QB to build a team around.

 

Too many around here are hoping for lightening in a bottle and while Peterman might be, it’s highly unlikely.

What are you smoking, that article is all about Brady..not Peterman.

 

Unless there is a hidden innuendo in that somewhere that I was oblivious to.

Gruden once called Tim Tebow "250 lbs of concrete cyanide". 

Find me a player that he hasn't excessively hyped up. 

I think cyanide is supposed to be bad.

Yeah Jauronimo.  If you have to explain it, it isn't a joke!

He does say that Brady is the best QB that's ever played which does rule out TT being better, and also, since at the time he hadn't played yet, must mean that Peterman is better then Brady, or why else would you say the best to have played?

 I'd want Tom Brady, but I'd take Andy Dalton right now. He'd be better than any QB since Kelly. 

 

Tallest Lilliputian and all that but still the truth.

Why go after another version of a middling QB?  Dalton is not a top tier QB.  Better than what we have but not exactly the guy you would want to build a team around.

I get a kick out of Gruden. Every QB he attempts to develop he throws this gigantic playbook at them and expects them to learn it all. So that at some point during a game he can call some obscure play that the rest of the team says wth is this? He overloads his QB's with a bunch of useless plays that the team will never utilize. 

 

On another note, some 2018 FA QB's, Kirk Cousins, Drew Brees, Sam Bradford.

Andy Dalton is like Drew Bledsoe... don't count on much beyond a bump up in a couple of wins. He is the epitome of anti-clutch when facing strong teams.
