RG ME Blames wr's for interception


Recommended Posts

That comment RG3 made was about the defense of the Eagles being able to predict where the pass plays were going, which many construe to be a shot at coaching, not at the WR.

Nice attempt at misquoting though.

I guess you know more than Santana Moss.

In all fairness, Moss says in the article on NFL.com that Griffin needs to take a little bit more responsibility for his detrimental actions as well as his positive ones. The way Moss states it, it is almost an "it's what you do as a quarterback" kind of statement. In other words, Moss sees it as a shot at the coaches as well.

RG3's TD to Robinson should have been picked off too, if the DB would have tracked the ball.  I think RG3 got lucky with that one, and just heaved it at the end of the game thinking he'd be lucky again.  There's not much else I can say to defend that horrible, horrible decision...it wasn't even 4th down.  Just like I can't defend Luck's int against Miami.

Love the way the article begins, "Santana Moss intimated that he'd like to see Robert Griffin III act a bit more like Tom Brady ... at the podium, that is."

 

As I was saying in the other thread, Brady may have his emotional times and bad throws but he always takes accountability for it. That is what makes his teammates love him. Even with the rings and league MVPs, he is still his own toughest critic and understands what being a leader is all about. I have no doubt that RG will learn from this.

You just don't see it. Tom gets his wife to do his dirty work. He's a clever one, our Tom!

Yeah, Tom Brady reminds of that guy you work with who complains and yells all the time, but without him the job wouldn't get done.

RGIII is a good QB, but it is gonna take some time to achieve greatness.  If you look at Joe Flacco a guy who takes his team to the playoffs pretty much every year, even he isn't being counted as one of the greats.  When you take a young talent like RGIII and inflate his head with all of the commercials, rookie of the year, etc  He is always gonna point the finger.  The coaches need to help him grow up, or put him in his place..

This really shouldn't surprise anybody. It's been pretty obvious from the beginning that Bob was all about......Bob! Anything he can do to get his face in front of a camera is what Bob is gonna do, even if that means throwing his coaches or his teammates under the bus. It's always somebody else's fault with him and he's developing a reputation for it.

Santana Moss is just bitter that the team is underperforming again. Hopefully this doesn't become a recurring problem or he'll get the diva receiva tag that the NFC East is so familiar with.

nah Moss has proven to be pretty low maintenance

When he made those initial comments, he hadn't even heard Griffin's actual quotes. The interviewer basically gave him a couple highlights and asked Moss to respond to them, naturally out of context.

skins have been a drama magnet for years and nowadays the national media is about being first, attract readers, and worry about accuracy later (any media, not just sports). That just compounds the problems. 3-7 will make anyone frustrated. :)

Tell me about it. At least they have three wins. :dunno:

yeah an offseason of rehab for your QB and not being able to practice with the rest of the team will really stunt your growth as an offense :) Eh...barring anything unexpected, next year will tell a lot for Griff's future in terms of how much work he puts in this offseason and what kind of strides he can make. This season has been about growing pains and maturation as much as anything.

I'm just tired of NFC East teams dominating football headlines. I'm not sure that anyone outside of NY, Philly, DC, and Dallas really care what's going on with any of these teams. They're all pretty bad.

It's where the money is in the NFL... get used to it because it's not going to change... of the top 4 most valuable and revenue generating teams in the NFL, the NFC East has THREE... (Dallas, Washington, New York)

The same can be said about the AFC and NFC East... both are pretty bad. Not sure what is it the water out there. None the less, I love the way you Patriot fans flock to every thread to make it all about you though. Such a shame.

Oh I know, I realize that. Those are huge media markets.

What?

 

First of all, the AFC East is bad? Three teams are at .500 or better. Just in terms of wins and losses, it's far from being the worst division in the NFL. And there's really no information overload. The Jets get coverage because they're in NY and are like a car wreck at times, and the Dolphins have been in the news for Incognito. 

 

Second of all, what did I say or do that prompted, "I love the way you Patriots fans flock to every thread to make it all about you though?" 

 

I didn't say I wanted more Patriots coverage, I said I'm tired of hearing about a division that could conceivably be won by an 8-8 or 9-7 team. 

 

So I'm not really sure where the misguided animosity is coming from here. "Such a shame."  :thmup:

You know how much time I spend thinking about RG III? 0

 

I think most of us don't really care too much about Griffin, who has been mediocre this year and is on a mediocre team. However, when ESPN and other media outlets have made it a crusade to give Griffin coverage regardless of the circumstances and have a new Griffin story nearly every day, it is hard not to talk about him.

 

Luck and Wilson have been far more successful this year--both individually and team wise-- yet you hear nothing about them. That's partly because of the media in Washington, but it's also partly because they don't run their mouths unnecessarily like ego-maniac Griffin.

Agreed, I am tired of hearing about the NFC East as well. The only team that could come out there and maybe do some damage in the playoffs is Dallas, and that would require them to stop beating themselves and play some defense. Don't see it happening. I guess it is hard to completely write off the Giants in light of their playoff success in recent years, but when you watch them there is nothing special about that group this year. They have been winning recently against other bad teams. Philly still doesn't have me convinced. They are so up and down it's hard to get a read on them, but typically up and down teams aren't going to do well come playoff time. Washington isn't even a threat for the playoffs at this point.

    • They were never going to pick Lamar in 2018   Karl Joseph is a bench player and Fitzpatrick is much better than him anyways   Not sure what this post is getting after
    • They are likely kicking the can down the road, and the negative consequence is higher cap numbers for those players in future seasons, and greater cap penalties to move on from those players in future seasons. The thing is there's no much else they can do. they're set to be nearly $70m over the cap in 2021, and other than these restructures, they would not be able to get under the cap by the start of the new league year. They would have to cut or trade all of their highly paid players.
    • I feel the hype about Carl Lawson is from a combination of people who haven't really watched him play, and who overrate "pressures" by assuming that all pressures are equally disruptive.    Lawson is a tough, physical, high effort guy, he tackles well, plays the run reasonably well, he has decent size, and he would fit nicely as a DE for us. He's not a dynamic pass rusher, and I don't think he ever would be a dynamic pass rusher.   He has some quickness and speed, good speed to power, but he's not the kind of explosive pass rusher that blows up the other team's blocking schemes. He has below average bend and closing speed, and he takes a lot of steps, which explains his tragically poor three cone. He also has below average length, and gets neutralized by good blockers. This is all obvious on his tape, it was obvious on his college tape, and it's why he went in the 4th round.   TomDiggs mentioned Lawson's knockdowns/hits and hurries. PFF recorded six edge rushers with at least QB 15 hits; despite the fact that Lawson had 24 hits, he only had five sacks, which is the least sacks among those six players. In fact, there were ten edges with fewer than 15 QB hits, but with at least ten sacks. PFF has 24 edges with at least 30 pressures; Lawson had 34 hurries, but was tied for fifth fewest sacks among those 24 players. In fact, there were five edges with fewer hurries than Lawson, but at least ten sacks.   My point is that QB hits and pressures only show a player that manages to get near the QB at some point during the play. Without context, they don't necessarily show a player that makes a definite impact on the play. That's why I value PFF's pass rush productivity (PRP) stat, because sacks are weighted more heavily than hits and pressures. And that makes sense because a sack ends the play. A QB can be pressured, even hit, and still make a positive play. Recognizing a sack as nearly always a negative play for the offense, PRP shows the difference between a guy who gets near the QB, and a pass rusher who makes plays for the defense. Sometimes the overlap is not as great as you might think.   Lawson's PRP was 8.5, tied for #18, well separated from guys like Bosa (10.6) and Watt (9.7). In general, a player with a bunch of total pressures, but low sack numbers, like Lawson, is a guy who gets a bunch of pass rush snaps but doesn't have the length, bend and closing speed to get home often enough. This is why guys like Trey Hendrickson and Leonard Floyd can have a third fewer total pressures, but twice as many sacks as Lawson (Hendrickson also had 80 fewer pass rush snaps). And Lawson gets a ton of pass rush snaps because he plays for a bad team with no other good edge rushers, so as long as he's healthy he'll have a lot of pressures, but he'll probably never be a big sack guy.   He's Trey Flowers. Better 40, same agility, not as long, mid level edge rusher who is well rounded and a good guy to have on your team, but not a dominant pass rusher. I can't see offering him $14m/year to not sack the QB. Any projection that has him as a big time sack guy is unrealistic, IMO.
    • It's nice to see Pittman, Smith and Okereke get some love.
    • Did I misread your post?   Did you not say you were in favor of moving Nelson to LT?   That if we’re going to pay him top dollar, it would be better to do it with him as our LT instead of at LG?    That wasn’t you?    I’m sorry, I thought that’s what I responded to....
