I hear ya, but... Benadryl.
2nd 'consecutive' year starting... with same scheme and offensive coordinator.
These were not the nearly the same in JB7's case.
And after 4 full years under Charlie Weis in the Earhardt-Perkins system he installed there (and still use), Weis moved on and also told TB12 he had nothing more for him
Different schemes and different offensive coordinators, with a year on the pine in between.
Every situation is unique. Like Aaron Rodger year 4...
Charlie Weis ( and BB ) saw the 'it' factor in a young Tom Brady. Weis says he saw it in JB7 as well. (as, apparently, did Bill Parcells). It's at least because of these 2 endorsements I placed my trust in Reich and JB7, and still do until >30 starts and 4 years manning the helm.
BTW, Pat Kirwan labeled JB7 as backup QB... until recently. He said JB7 won him over as a true blue NFL starting QB.
Time will tell.
Wow, I remember my one and only game (2005) at the RCA Dome and it was, and remains, the loudest stadium I ever heard. Have been to KC twice in the last two years ... it was loud, but not as loud as my game experience at the RCA Dome. (Open air stadium, tough to be as loud as a dome.)
Only been to 1 game at Lucas Oil. Vs Denver when the Colts upset the Broncos, but Luck got injured. It was loud then, but not close to my RCA Dome experience.
Been to a lot of different venues around the league. The one common thread? The loudest stadiums were the ones where the teams are consistently doing very well. Fair weather fans are all over the place.
