You're being very vague and dodgy about why you're so active right now.

 

It's very coincidental that a number of Pats fans seem to have come out of the woodwork on this forum after the Pats won the other night...

 

:thinking:

Well they only post regularly when they beat us or are in the SB been that way since I joined lol

:thinking:

 

I can't really say one way or the other if we (Pats fans) have been coming out of the woodwork or not. I only check here occasionally... I got sucked into the rabbit hole yesterday. Admittedly. 

 

I first started posting on this board (or a version of it) back in 2004. I've made some friends over the years. I was here for "Krafty Bob" and "Tuba Guy" and many colorful personalities from both sides of the rivalry. 

 

If I've offended you or anyone these past two days, I apologize - that's not my MO here. I tend to treat people in the same manner in which I'm treated. A lot of newer posters who maybe didn't know me before have taken their shots at me and other Pats fans, so... that's the whole "poetic justice" kind of thing. I took a long break after Deflategate (over 2 years if I recall correctly) because of what I considered to be personal attacks. But whatever, that's not a big deal and it certainly has nothing to do with you. I've always enjoyed your lighthearted posts and sense-of-humor. If we were having this conversation in person, I'd offer to buy the beer. 

 

Enjoying the success of the Patriots is not a case of me reveling in the misfortune of others. If I wanted to do that, I've had plenty of opportunities, since the Colts have only recently reemerged as a contender in the AFC. But between Deflategate, the Josh McDaniels situation, and other general (misguided) animosity that's been directed at me and my fellow Pats fans... yes, I've stooped lower than I wanted to at times, or meant to. I'm human, what can I say. 

 

I wish you guys no ill will. Sports are fun but sometimes we all take it a little too seriously. 

 

Cheers to you, and peace out. You're a good guy.

Back at ya!  I have a lot of respect for BB, Brady and what the Pats have accomplished.

 

You're a classy Pats fan.

Well excuse me, Herr GoPats. I typed it from memory.  Bet you looked it up.

 

I did, lol... figured it was obvious! My apologies to you as well, I was messing around here but didn't make that clear enough. Sorry about that!

I hate the Pats, but if I was a betting man, I'd bet on them. Friggin' Pats in the SB again! I know I'll sound like I'm just a Pats hater, I admitted I am, but I would think the same team making it to the SB so many times has to bad for ratings. Maybe I'm wrong. 

 

Pats vs Chiefs got highest ratings since last Superbowl.  I think a lot of people tune in to see the Pats lose.

James white will break his record for receptions. Julian Eldeman will have 10 1st down receptions.

Suh and Donald won't get one finger on Brady.

The Rams will keep Pace with the Patriots. But will leave Brady too much time in the end

 

Brady could snap the ball for the first play of the game, run the entire quarter out on that one play because his offensive line gives him an eternity to throw the ball (Brady could probably squeeze the ball between his legs and play on his phone while the clock is running down), and no one would still make any mention of how well he's protected.

 

My wild card for the game: McVay, known for his aggressiveness, calls an aggressive play at the wrong time and decides the game.

Well...I won’t be watching. I’ve seen where a lot of other people online have indicated that they won’t be watching either.  Also heard on one of the sports talk shows where they were speculating that this may be the lowest rated Super Bowl in some time.  Maybe if ratings are low enough the NFL will finally get the message. The game manipulations and forced Brady/Pats narrative have run their course and people are tuning out.

I’m pulling for the Rams but it would be an upset. It wouldn’t exactly be an 18-1 level upset but I think it would be an upset. Now all fandom aside, here are the most possible outcomes imo.

 

If it’s a tight game from the opening whistle then the Pats win. That’s what they do.

 

If the Pats jump on them early then I say the Rams come back and win. They’ve done it in every big game this year, with the exception being the Saints game even though they did come back and tie that game. They only lost it after the comeback and said afterwards that they learned about being conservative after a comeback.

 

If the Rams jump out the Pats won’t quit and they’ll make us nervous somewhere in the middle but the Rams will win that one too. They have the OL and the RBs to win any game if they’re spotted points unlike teams who have blew leads before. The Rams are straight out of the 60s in this regard.

 

So the Rams win in 2 of the 3 most likely turns of events. I’m excited. It should be a good un.

Bold predication time. 

 

As I was ranting in another thread about how the final mins are going to go down on Sunday. I began thinking about all the "crazy" things we are going to see..

 

1: Tom Brady will get the ball out fast

2: Tom Brady will take away the other teams best weapon

3: Tom Brady will play excellent press man coverage

4: Tom Brady will apply pressure to Jared Goff throughout the night

5: Tom Brady will make the right adjustments at halftime

 

I won't predict the score, but my bold prediction is:

 

Not only will the Rams not being able to sack, they won't pressure him once...

    • Reading comprehension. For the second time, I did not say you did. Others in that thread did. I merely linked the thread without pointing to anyone in particular. It’s not always about you my friend
    • Everyone knows he has a rocket launcher arm (like Brisket) but let's make sure he can put some touch on the ball (unlike Brisket) 
    • I didn't comment on the trade being bad, I summarized his week one play. I think we'll only know if it was a good deal 3 years into it. I wasn't and am not against the trade.  I am for it. But the guy has to produce or anyone supporting it was wrong, but the staff must answer for it. That is how it works. 
    • A little deeper dive and comparisons of W1 and 2.     Below are  1. QB Stats and comments 2. Pass catcher separation stats and comments 3. DL separation stats and comments 4. Pass rush stats and comments 5. Tackle stats and comments 6. Dog house stats (drops and missed tackles) and comments 7. Pass charts from W1 and 2 from Nextgen   The TLDR 1. Jax game plan was pretty simple looking at the stats if it wasn't already obvious. Attack our soft zone. Surprised MN didn't take note. 2. Rivers is 3rd in Time to Throw (lowest) through 2 weeks (only 0.03 off #1) and 3rd in completion %. Tied for 3rd in INTs too ouch (T for 7th if you remove the last one). 3. Our pass catchers are pretty mediocre in getting separation.  4. Autry is doing pretty darn good at DE. Muhammad might be a better pressure guy than we thought. 5. Our DL wasn't really better better in W2. Cousins' time to throw was 38% higher than Minshew's, and threw it 30% more. The stats are near the same all things considered. 6. While there's no cushion stats for the overall D, many stats would suggest our DBs played closer to the LOS vs MN. Perhaps not more man, but limited free release/cushion. 7. TY is the only drop so far. Okereke is leading the team with missed tackles per snap.   QB Stats TtT - Time to throw (lowest to highest) WK1 Minshew #2T lowest (#17 in W2) WK2 Cousins #31 (27th in WK1) Note - Rivers was #2T W1 and #2 W2   IAY - Intended air yards (lowest to highest) W1 Minshew #2 (W2 #25) W2 Cousins #31 (W1 #29) Note - Rivers was #9 W1 and #23 W2   AGG% - Aggressive % (lowest to highest) W1 Minshew #2 (#24 W2) W2 Cousins #15 (#29 W1) Note - Rivers was #27 W1 and #20 W2   Completion % (highest to lowest) WK1 Minshew #1 (18 WK2) WK2 Cousins #32 (#6 W1) Note - Rivers was #5 W1 and #3 W2 O Comments -  Rivers - being first and second in time to throw in the first 2 weeks is a breath of fresh air from last year. Aside from the W1 INTs (W2 INT was not on him), he's doing what you want in terms of both TtT and Completion % (top 5 both weeks). I'm glad to see the AGG% go down in W2, but W1 is somewhat expected in a close game or playing from behind. You don't want to be too conservative, but you don't want to be higher than 25 either. IAY will vary game to game based on gameplan, and you don't want to be too high or two low in your AVG. The swing from W1 to 2 is a bit understandable given who we were playing. Colts Passing D Comments - Jax - If anyone didn't clearly understand Jax's game plan vs the Colts, the stats make it crystal clear in that they wanted to attack our soft zone. Minshew's #2 TtT, #2 lowest IAY, #2 AGG%, and #1 completion % make it painfully obvious. Hats off to their OC, and paper bag over the head to our D gameplan and for not making quick adjustments. We made Minshew look like a surgeon. Vikings - It's no wonder folks think our DL got more pressure vs the Vikes. Cousins' horribly high TtT gave us a lot more opportunity/time to see it. And his high IAY and low completion % gave our DBs opportunity to defend.      WR/TE Separation (2.84 yards is league AVG) Week 1 Jax Conley 6.14 Eifert 5.13 Cole 4.93 Shenault 3.1 Chark 2.54 Colts MAC 3.42 Doyle 2.62 Campbell 2.58 Hilton 2.35 Pascal 1.29   Week 1 Comments Jax - Another eye popping stat in Jax's gameplan. 4 of 5 Jax pass catchers were above league average in separation, 3 of 5 significantly above. Again, made our soft zone look silly. I really wish they gave game by game cushion stats as well (although we all can guess). Colts - Having 4 of 5 pass catchers below league average is a bit scary, especially when one of those guys is Hilton. Doyle was one of the better guys in the league last year in separation, so guessing this is a blip. Another indicator though that MAC has some pretty good potential.    Week 2 (2.84 League AVG) MN Smith 3.28 Jefferson 3.15 Johnson 2.86 Thielen 2.14 Rudolph 0.53 Colts Dulin 4.16 Hilton 2.72 Pascal 2.6 Pittman 2.08 MAC 2.04   Week 2 Comments MN - Another indicator we likely played more man in W2. While there were 3 of 5 over the league average, they weren't near as far over as Jax in W1.  Colts - This is one of the reasons I'd like to see Dulin get some additional targets. TY did a bit better this week, but still below league AVG. Big delta for MAC, but expected to an extent becoming the #1 TE.  Defensive Pass Rush AVG Separation from QB (League AVG is 4.51 yards) Week 1 Jax Allen 4.45 Bryan 4.51 Smoot 4.68 Chaisson 5.06 Colts Autry 3.54 Buckner 4.67 Houston 5.31 Stewart 5.37   Week 1 Comments Jax - about what you would expect. Only one below the league AVG, so OL did a great job. It should however be expect given Rivers' extremely low time to throw. Colts - Given Minshew's #3 time to throw that week, this is an exceptional job by Autry coming from the outside, and understandable for the rest.   Week 2 MN Odenigbo 4.79 Ngakoue 5.04 Holmes 5.25 Johnson 5.83 Colts  Muhammad 3.6 Houston 3.94 Buckner 4.13 Autry 4.58   Week 2 Comments MN - simply great job by the Colts OL keeping everyone higher than the league AVG. And I'm sure the OL is loving the big reduciton in this year's TtT. If Rivers continues to be top 5, this will be a big help to the OL in terms of wear and tear, and overall freshness late in games, and late in year. Colts - What a great number from Muhammad, who most see as a run stuffer. Great numbers all around, but shoujld be expected given Cousin's super high TtT. In short, the Colts DL had 38% more time, and 30% more opportunity (attempts) to get home in week 2.     Pass Rush Stats (passing) Indy D - WK1 / WK2 OL Rank - Jax 26th / MN 23rd Opponent Passing Attempts - 20 / 26 Pressures - 9 (7 DL, 2 DB) / 11 (11DL) QB Hits - 4 (3 DL, 1 DB) / 7 (7 DL) Hurries - 5 (4 DL, 1 DB) / 4 (4 DL) Blitz - 6 (5 LB, 1 DB) / 6 (4 LB / 2 DB) Sacks - 4 (3 DL, 1 DB) / 3 (3 DL) Knock downs - 0 / 3 (3 DL)   Misc D Stats Passes Defended - 1 (DB) / 9 (8 DB, 1 LB) TFL - 5 (4 DL, 1 DB) / 3 (2 DL, 1 LB) INT - 0 / 3 (3 DB)   Comments - Overall, not a huge difference. Combined pressures only increased by 2 in Week 2, which is probably smaller than one would expect with having 38% more time to get to the QB, and 30% more passing than Week 1.      Tackles (combined) Week 1 (43 total plays / 19 of 20 pass / 23 rush) DL 15 LB 20 DB 16 Week 2 (44 total plays / 11 of 26 pass / 18 rush) DL 14 LB 12 DB 16   Comments - Pretty clear our DBs were playing closer up given the DB Ts week 2, when there was nearly half the completions, yet same number of Ts.  Doghouse stats Week 1 Drops - 0 Missed Ts - Buckner 1, Oke 1, Rock 1, Walker 1 Week 2 Drops - Hilton 1 Missed Ts - Moore 1, Oke 1, Walker 1, Stewart 1   Comments - less drops overall so far, and TY does have an occasional one. Not worried, but boy was that a big drop. On missed Ts, not surprised to see Oke's name there both weeks, but a little surprised to see Walker, Moore, Rock, and especially Buckner.   Pass Charts - Click to enlarge   Week 1 Week 2
    • Daily fantasy tournament PPR: I need a replacement for Christian McCaffrey. Jonathan Taylor is one of my RB's, but I'm not sure who else to use. Kenyon Drake vs Detroit; Austin Ekeler vs Carolina or Nick Chubb vs Washington. They all cost about the same, only about a $500 difference. Could fit any of them into my lineup.   Detroit and Carolina have bad run defenses, but Washington might have trouble with Cleveland. Any ideas?
