    Joe Flacco to Jaguars ?

    I think they should go the draft route but I don't think they will. Trade or FA, depending on what happens with Foles and Flacco. Coughlin doesn't strike me as very patient guy.

    I'd assume Flacco will be cut. He might get close to 20M but it can be structured in a way that the cap hit is less than 20M or it might be incentive based. He doesn't have exactly stellar track record and shouldn't be in high demand but we'll see. Cutting Carlos Hyde, Malik Jackso or Marcell Dareus gives them about 15M extra cap space. Bortles as post-june cut is another 10M. And yeah they blew it last year banking on Bortles and D generating turnovers like last year.

    Reality check

    NE has been among the man-heavy teams in the NFL for a long time. Denver in '15 was too.
  4. Also the timing, some concepts need that QB sees the field all the time and can pull the trigger right away if necesseary.
  5. Rams playaction has been effective with CJ Anderson. Motion and threat of run, not necessearily the RB makes the D bite and overplay the run. Rams run game has been effective with CJ too, the guy who has been cut from 3 teams this past calendar year.

    Lessons learned from Chiefs game

    Chiefs fooled us with misdirection and creative playdesigns that attacked our soft zones. Having Mahomes and those great weapons of course helped too. https://twitter.com/ezlazar/status/1084926552322818050 https://twitter.com/QBKlass/status/1084985544478605312

    In their past 3 matchups, they've thrown the kitchen sink at Kelce. Jams at LOS, double-teams etc.

    Philip Rivers or Eli Manning To The HoF?

    Eli played in a favorable era for QBs. IMO he wasn't the real MVP for those SBs but that's arguable. He missed playoffs 7 out of 9 times this decade. Yes, team game, but that doesn't happen to truly elite QBs. Big Ben has better TD/INT ratio, Yards per game, YPA, has been the best player on his team for more years and has (had) been considered/argued to be top 5 QB longer than Eli, who was that maybe one or two of his 15 seasons. But like Eli, no All-Pros or regular season MVPs for Ben. And they haven't won the SB when he became the best player on his team. So I think there's a case for Ben to not make it. Eli has less TDs per game than Matt Ryan. And Matt Stafford. Along with worse TD/INT ratio. In raw stats he's leading them but those guys will likely pass Eli in raw stats too or close the gap significantly when Eli will be eligible for HOF. Eli acually ranks 10th in yards per game among all QBs with at least 100 games played since '05(signficant change in passing rules) and has thrown by far the most picks. Eli averages more than 1 INT per game. Since '05 and with at least 100 starts at QB, only Jay Cutler, Carson Palmer and Ryan Fitzpatrick have done the same. Eli was durable, good player for a long time who played great in two SB runs. That's not HOFer imo. Peyton, Brees, Brady and Rodgers are/were the best or one of the best for a long time and carried their teams, They are HOFers.

    Antonio Brown? Doubt it.

    His job in KC was also different. It was to look for players that Reid/Dorsey want or were willing to accept.

    Philip Rivers or Eli Manning To The HoF?

    Neither. Rivers is closer though. I think he's a good barometer for HOF.. In a sense that if you're better QB than Rivers, you get in. p Neither Rivers nor Eli have ever been regular season MVPs or even close to it. No All-Pros. Never considered a top 3 active player at their position and not even top5 for most of the time. Eli has been out of top 10 for close to a half of his career and was rarely the best player on his own team.

    Antonio Brown? Doubt it.

    He did feud with with lot of players and even his own staff in Denver and of course got caught (well assistant got caught) in videotaping practices of his teams opponent.

    Reality check

    Offseason or preseason SOS is. In-season SOS or after the season SOS is not. Like the article mentions at the end.

  15. Elite QBs carve up soft zones. Have believed in that for a while. Chargers OL has been shaky too but this is still surpising demolition imo.
