  1. I think JB's biggest negative that may not be fixable is his lack of confidence in making the iffy throw. You just don't get the perfect set up on every pass. Sometimes you just have to take a chance and let her rip. Sometimes it works and sometimes it goes the other way. The best QBs most of the time make it work. You have to trust you're physical abilities which JB has and you receivers, which he didn't have last years to make it work. I'm not sure that can be taught. Every successful QB/PG I've know in my life had that confidence in spades.
  2. Maybe our second in the second or a third rounder.
  3. Maybe too early, but the kid is a monster. Would love to see him somewhere in the mix.
  4. The comment posters on the link seem to disagree about how good Richard's is. Most do not think highly of him.
  5. Here is my rebuttal. I'm sure Frank Reich is a wonderful man and cares deeply for his players, he is also a quiet contemplative man. That is what you want in a religious leader. But if I need a leader to go into battle with I want someone with fire, someone that has been in the trench, someone whom is hard nosed and who will expect to play as hard as he did. I want a leader who will have my back when I'm right and kick me in the backside when I deserve it. I don't want my coach to be my friend. I want someone I can respect, but who will call me out when I'm doing my job. Someone who storms the
  6. I think the Vinny think had more to do with it that people admit. He obviously was killing us. We can attribute at least three losses directly to his ineptness. That of course makes us 10-6 team. Other players see that. They take notice that if your name is Vinatieri you're getting a pass for lousy performance. You say the right things in interviews, but that's just for public consumption. I've played team sports and if the coaches son gets special treatment it effects the locker room. People knew we were losing games because of him, but nothing was done. Reich even said everybody gets treate
  7. Well we couldn't when it counted. I seem to remember we gave up a double digit lead in the fourth quarter that killed our play off chances, AT HOME.
  8. If the Titans are the worst playoff team ever then what does that make Baltimore? As I see it they have a QB problem. Jackson can get yards with his feet, but he's not a very accomplished passer. What I see from TN is they have the personality of their coach, tough, hard nosed, blue collar, like Vrabel was as a LB (our coach is a preacher by the way). And they were obviously a QB away from being a contender.
  9. We ended up 7-9. We lost one game, LAC, because we couldn't make FGs or PATs. We lost to Pittsburgh because our starting QB got knocked out of the game while driving for a TD to go up double digits and our backup came in and immediately threw a pick six. Then as the clock wound down our kicker again couldn't make a chip shot FG to win the game. We lost to Miami because our kicker missed a PAT and our backup QB (not JB) couldn't get a first down in the red zone at the end of the game. We lost our second game to TN because again our kicker couldn't make FGs and our special teams couldn't provide
  10. The best QB's of the last generation. Why not see if Brett Favre will come out of retirement. The guy is a system QB. Not saying he isn't good, but put him on a team other than the Patriots and I'm guessing he has maybe one ring and is not considered an all time great. But most importantly he's done. Anybody who watched Johnny Unitas or Joe Montana's slow deaths at the end of their careers knows what I'm talking about.
  11. If he goes under the knife does that solve the problem? Would he be ready to play in September? If not then Ballard would have to do something because Hoyer and Kelly aren't the answer to start the season.
  12. "Gardner Minshew: 27 of 39, 295, 3 TDs, 1 INT, 106.2 rating" He could get Chad's yellow jacket if he played us every week. JB didn't have much to do with these numbers. I know there are people on here to want to blame him for everything, but our collapse has been a team wide effort. I don't remember any fumbles against, NO, the Buc, TN or Miami when he was in street clothes. I don't think he's the answer at QB, but our defense has sucked in the second half of a lot of games this year when we gave up double digit leads in the last two quarters.
  13. How many double digit leads have we given up in the second half? I think we were out scored 25-0 in this game after being up 20-13. That has been a theme all year. We start well, get a lead and then the defense and the Oline disappears.
  14. Just for the record the Pat's have three first round picks this year. Not sure how, but it showed up on NFL Network scroll the other night. Give Cincinnati all three and Brady. There are GM stupid enough to take that. Don't know about Cincinnati.
