staying one step ahead with Bill Belichick

Recommended Posts

get an egoless and talented QB

 

get him to the line with 20 on the shotclock

 

allow him to audible or kill a play based on his read of the D and get the ball in the air in half a second

 

take those 7 easy yards on 1st and 10

 

 

 

nobody else cares to bother with this?

Exploiting the compensatory pick rules is worth mentioning along with drafting well and successfully navigating free agency plus getting good players in trades for what has been peanuts.  Year after year the Patriots seem to get multiple compensatory picks for losing players to free agency.  Teams like the Bills seem to get none.  I thought of this when the Bills waived Benjamin prior to season's end.  Waiving him sent a message but simply deactivating him on game day and swallowing a couple game checks would have resulted in his contract expiring and the loss of a 1st round type player against the compensation system.  Now the Bills get no credit under the system.

Kelvin is most likely signing a 1 year prove it deal for very little money. It would not have brought back much if anything for a comp pick

Trades are a mystery to me.

 

Teams that are desperate get nothing in return and good teams get more than they deserve.

 

As a fan of the Leafs and Jays and Raptors I have watched stars in their prime flicker off to contenders for absolutely nothing in return for most of the last 4 decades.

The NFL just needs better coaches and GMs. 

 

 

 

there are a lot of young QBs with a great future ahead of them in 2018, thank goodness

Jeff George was a talented QB who somehow hooked up with a bunch of total losers at coaches

But but this type of offence wont work Ive heard it here many times.

 

every day since 2001 someone has stated that all you have to do is simply rush Brady and put a little pressure on him and he will crumble

 

and they are all very serious.....

yeah he was

 

attitude wasn't the best, but again he was stuck with the worst luck of a shipload of horrible HCs

 

 

a stronger arm than Josh Allen and accurate right out of college..... the biggest waste of a QB barring injury in my years of watching

He was average at best... a Fitzpatrick of  his era.

Its not hype, 60 yards through the air, flat footed and square to the goal line is insane.  You obviously know nothing about throwing.  Jeff Goerge a great QB and you want to talk anout hype.  Youre stuck on hype from how many years ago LMAO.  What a joke.

Bad organizations do dumb things out of desperation.  Good organizations do smart things based on opportunity.  It's really that simple.

nice article. no doubt Belichik has been the ultimate contrarian. that said having a hall of fame QB who can get you a 5-7 yards on demand will always make you look good.

 

I dont think we will ever have an answer to the Was it Brady? or Was it Belichik? debate.

Yep.  The sad thing is they get recycled once they get fired.

Who exactly is staying one step ahead of Belichick? 

 

The writing for the Super Bowl narrative looks  pretty clear. The heavy Patriot O line should be able to run on the lighter DLine of LA. Oops.....

 

And that bit about Belichick not drafting well is a bit flawed IMO. Sony Michel, first round running back, had a great season. Drafting running backs early is soooo bad.

Bingo. Belichick is the most accomplished coach in the SB era. Better than Halas, Lombardi, or Shula? No. Belichick has been able to consistently fail at drafting without consequences. Why? A once in a generation QB masks his coaching mistakes. Please see SB 52 where NE is blown out without Brady. Or see the AFCCG where Belichick's defense gave up 31 points iwithin 15 minutes. All the credit goes to Belichick for keeping KC scoreless by half. Yet, he gets no blame for that pittiful D in the second half. Oh, he also cheats.

See SB 52 and the AFCCG in KC.

He was a consensus #1 overall pick not a 7th rounder out of the Ivy League

That makes it even worse for him... doesn't matter where you were picked. Being #1 doesn't mean *****.
