Our Offensive Philosophy

131 posts in this topic

How can a game manager at one time break the record for most passing touchdowns in a season with 49 which included 6 passing touchdowns vs Miami and appear in 5 Super Bowls?, Consistent is the most important word you said out of those 7 you used to describe the Pats offense, I dont think 49 touchdowns (6 coming in one game) is boring, predictable? yes but those kinds of passes are heck to stop, we should know, teams have been dinking and dunking on us for years with short quick routes all the way down the field. The other method obviously works of slingiing it down the field sure but alot more risks are involved

I get what he was saying. The Pats offense doesn't call for Brady to make as many difficult throws as other offenses. That doesn't mean he can't make those throws, it just means he usually doesn't have to. Football is about winning at the end of the day, and what the Pats are doing on offense is very efficient and safe. It's smart football and it wins games, but at times, it IS very boring to watch. I can see why someone would make the comparison of Tom Brady to a game manager. He's still one of the GOAT, though

I think all we want, as Colts fans, is just a little more balance. Not too much of either extreme. I don't mind us taking shots downfield, so long as it's not every other pass, and so long as they are connecting more times than not. When they don't connect, it causes our offense to stall because we end up in so many 3rd and longs.

Luck is also a rookie throwing to the most reliable receiver on the team?

I said Super Game Manager. He never throws the difficult passes because he doesn't have to. He just throws the correct pass almost all the time. Isn't that the definition of game manager? It's not his fault, but if asked to do what Luck and RG3 are doing, I really don't think he could do it. If he went 1 year with an inferior Oline, he would be toast.

He lost his Pro Bowl Left Tackle, Has been having to compete with his own defense (at least Secondary) to win games, What exactly has Robert Griffin done that Brady has not done? I like Robert Griffin, he has looked impressive but lets be honest if Griffin becomes half the QB that Brady is then Griffin will have had a pretty darn good career, Brady won the Super Bowl his first year after being subbed in for an injured Bledsoe, Brady has led the Pats to 5 Super Bowl appearances (winning 3), Brady once held the all time passing touchdown record in a season, 2 time super bowl mvp. NFL Comeback player of the year in 2009. 7 Pro Bowls, 2 time MVP, 2007, 2010. If Robert Griffin even comes close to sniffing an ounce of that success then he would be a great QB, Honestly though I dont see him having anywhere near that success, Like him alot but dont see it happening at least not yet

When RGIII is throwing to unknown rookie Wr and Garcon who we all does not have the most realiable hand in the world and thrown for 13 td and 3 pick.....There is something wrong there.....

fans always have to have a reason to gripe or down play an opposing player even when it makes no sense

Oh, I guess one game changes what he's done in 10 other games. My mistake.

    • Runningback yardage over time: RBs typically peak at 26 and decline every year after.
      A specific question I have about the data is whether age is more important than volume of carries. Would it be true to say that if a guy got drafted at 24 years old, he'd be more likely to peak at 28 in his fourth year?   Devontae Booker will be 24 before he plays his first NFL game. Does he basically have three years before he starts declining?
    • Cam Newton walks out of post SB interview
      Leave it alone.  You said basically the same thing Gavin said and I should have quoted YOU as well.   Cam did what he did...he is young and he is immature. He should have lived up to what a leader should do.  Not "He has every right to do this."   Yes and we have a right to think he is not a leader.  There is class and there is no class.  I said my piece.   In addition, Lee was one of the best generals in the history of war.  Losing a war is awful knowing so may people died on both sides in the Civil war. To show class in defeat has been talked about for centuries.  The Super Bowl is a GAME!!   Sorry you did not like the analogy.
    • Cam Newton walks out of post SB interview
      I understand that some fans might wanna pile on Cam Newton due to some of his dabbing & touchdown celebrations & they wanna use his SB loss & post game press conference walk off as a mechanism to slam the guy. But, not me & here's why:    Nobody really knows how they would react if they were in Cam's shoes as a young, franchise QB who just lost his 1st SB on natl. TV. He will learn from this experience how to cope with failure & be a professional. Cam's a good guy & 1 hades of a QB who will play in the SB again. Personally, I think the media is engaging in 'fake outrage' over this incident.    No, it wasn't right leaving like that. But, it's really a question over what Cam does over his team's next playoff loss. Highly competitive people always have a problem with losing. I really see this as a blip on Cam's radar screen not a pouting trend overall. Losing with grace & humility isn't something you can learn from a book or another HOF mentor like Warren Moon. It has to be felt & endured personal by Cam first. He'll be fine IMHO. 
    • Under the Radar Profile: Karl Joseph, FS WVU
      He wouldn't be an under the radar prospect if it wasn't for his injury. He is easily the best safety prospect in this draft, but should be pushed down teams boards due to injury. He has been a personal favorite of mine for a couple years now. He is worth trading back into the bottom on the 2nd to make sure you get him.
    • More people in Indy watched super bowl 50 than in Denver
      Might not mean a thing, but found it interesting either way.   http://www.stampedeblue.com/2016/2/8/10940148/super-bowl-50-got-higher-ratings-in-indianapolis-than-in-denver-peyton-manning?utm_campaign=stampedeblue&utm_content=chorus&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter
