  1. I get not wanting to slow the game down too much and have coaches challenging penalties/non penalties all game, but the NFL is too big to not have some system in place to ensure the human element is mitigated from changing the results of games.

    By all rights this game was ours and the refs cost us. Sure, everyone can point to a bad second half game plan and Colts errors, but nothing killed us more than the abomination of one sided reffing. The Kenny Moore PI was one of the worst calls I’ve ever seen, and I watched the Saints/Rams playoff game a couple years ago. 


    I would like to see, in addition to the two regular challenges, teams be allowed two penalty challenges per game. Both calls and non calls should be up for review. I don’t see that it would slow the game down much. It would be a much faster review process than the regular challenge reviews. Usually you can tell upon one additional watch whether a foul occurred. 

  2. My God I know it’s only a couple of people but I’m not sure I’ve ever seen such dire pessimism over a 10-4 team losing it’s right tackle for a game against a team who’s lost three straight, one of which was against a bottom three team in the game without its franchise QB.

  3. Nah TE is pretty solid. Each guy has their own role and they are cycled in and out constantly like a running back platoon. I feel pretty confident that MAC would be right there at about the Goedert tier if he played the same amount of snaps. Doyle won’t be winning any track or beauty contests but he plays his role as the checkdown security blanket very well. Burton is more of the gadget TE and to be perfectly honest is much better at that than Ebron was even in 2018 with Luck, he just doesn’t have the bulk numbers. 

    Sure, everyone would like to have Kelce or Kittle, but there are only two of them and our TE committee approach is doing very well. I believe future QB and Oline depth are more of a need for the offense going into next year.

  4. Bush league move from a team that has won nothing in its entire existence other than a couple division titles and almost single handedly ruined the season this year, but hey, they can officially say they won in week 12 of the 2020 season. Congrats Titans, you split with us this year so take the small victories. Maybe one of these years they’ll win something of note.

    it was all game.  i counted 3 blatant ones and even commented to the people i was watching with.  What the heck is up with that? one he left a full 1/2 second before anyone else. 

    Not sure if it’s been posted here yet but someone posted it to Reddit. 


    Just insane the double standard in reffing from this game.

    What does this mean?

    Best picture I could find of him from this year. He had a different helmet last year that didn’t have the same effect but every time I see him this year the shoe looks weird and skinny. 

    Maybe I’m losing it 


  7. If the Jets are in full tank mode, which I believe they are at the top, then why would they trade for Rivers? He’s not a tank commander. They are going to move forward throwing Flacco to the wolves, giving him absolutely no help, not that it would matter much if they did because he’s washed, and they will try to move any assets they have (not many). Gase is a dead man walking and will now just be a figurehead until they can him and try to rebuild in the offseason. They will more than likely have the first overall pick as long as they don’t fire Gase until the end of the year and keep Flacco starting. Darnold will get moved in the offseason. His value is as low as it can get right now but in the offseason, someone will want to try him as a reclamation project. I don’t want anything to do with that, but someone will. My preliminary bet is he goes down to Jerruh world and Dak leaves.

    People keep complaning that our defense had no pressure even though we had 3 to 4 sacks.  If there's was anybody who didn't have pressure it was Jacksonville.  They didn't even get one sack and barely even got close to the QB for the whole game.   We really should have won almost without a doubt.  It's a story of not taking advantage of our many opportunities, and also gifting them opportunities through sloppiness. 

    I’m glad somebody pointed this out. People have said our Oline didn’t play well but that is not true. Our line kept Rivers clean other than one play that sticks out where a blitzed up the middle wasn’t picked up, but that one was on the back if I’m not mistaken. A couple bad drops, a couple really bad decisions by Rivers, and a run stuff on fourth down were the worst parts offensively. Defensively it was the usual bad coverage and uncontested passes that lost the game, not the pass rush. Buckner wasn’t great but he played alright, Houston and Autry were both solid.

    @The Peytonator You’ve been a part of this forum a lot longer than I have, so I’m still getting to know people on here... just wanted to say I like your profile name! :D

    Thank you and welcome even though I see you’ve had a number of posts! I like to see traffic here although I don’t post as much as I used to, mostly just lurking.

  10. Have to exclude the Colts because they’re the obvious answer, so who would you rate number one after that?


    Personally I think I’d pick the Bills first and the Vikings second but it’s a close call between those two. 

    Worst uniforms have to be the Cardinals and Browns.

    I still like the prospect of Ya Sin and Tell on the outside (2021 with more seasoning) with Rhodes converted to Safety (ala Ronnie Lott, Rod Woodson or Charles Woodson did back in the day) and Kenny Moore in the slot! I could get behind that kind of secondary......

    Actually moving Rhodes to SS in Nickel might be a strong consideration. I hadn’t really thought about moving him from where he’s played his whole career but since his athleticism has gone down a little bit and he’s been so bad outside the last two years, having him man up against TEs could be just what his career needs. I liked what Willis showed but he was so bad in coverage that I am really not counting on him to be more than a base package box safety.

  12. I don’t think the defense will be worse but I’d be lying if I said coverage isn’t a huge concern. We are banking a LOT on Rock improving and becoming a shutdown corner, Rhodes rolling back the clock three years, Moore staying healthy, and Willis holding down the other safety spot where he was serviceable against the run but bad against the pass. We are a couple injuries away from starting Lafayette Pitts and Rolan Milligan, and we know there will be injuries. I did not like the way QBs were carving up the secondary late in the year, although I think a more competent offense will help immensely. Even Famous Jameis carved us up and he was practically blind.

  13. Blue is a Hall of Famer and and he generates most of his power from his belly. If he bulked up I fear it would hinder his flexibility and we wouldn’t get to see him smacking down little kids in the peewee league.

  14. Packers and Vikings are home games so at least the two harder opponents are a little easier. I kinda think GB is overrated and didn’t belong in the NFC title game. They also did nothing to improve this year. I would be okay playing them opening weekend and it would be cool to open on Monday night.

  15. I’m very hyped for him. For him to play well enough to make the PFF all rookie team after the utter beating he took against Denver, it shows some seriously impressive mettle in a young guy. He has the necessary physical traits, the mental makeup, and worked his way from a D3 school to a high draft pick. I feel confident that he will be a lockdown, number one corner. Rock Island will be a stud.

    He’s the next Deion Cain in terms of forum hype

    Not at all. Cain had Roy Hall levels of hype, Patmon is more like Blair White. Patmon could very well be a steal, but he will not generate much buzz unless he shows out big time in the preseason. 

    I believe he’s destined for the practice squad year one. I think Fountain and Johnson both make the initial roster if everyone is healthy (not likely).
