It's using some new Skynet neural network technology.

 

I can't see anything going wrong with that.

No, that was the new robot guard,  Quantum Nelson.

Hmm... I wonder if there is any relationship between the appearance of this robot, and QN's "Run the D*** Ball" hat?

 

Okay, I'll go to my room now...

So is the robot talking about how good it is while it's throwing?

Jokes aside, i like the improved accuracy it offers. Great for juggs type work but for routes too.  Nothing worse than a receiver running a great route and the ball isnt there.

  Cant replace the timing between QB and WR, but a great tool for warm-ups, etc.  i would think you could help train running routes too because the ball will be where you want your receiver to be.  He has to get there.

  Ok.. joke mode back on.... I hope Andrew bought stock in this company.

I believe it was in "Baker Mayfield" mode.

It also has an "Eli" mode where it just stands there with a stupid look on its circuit boards.

I heard it's also capable of screaming "Da***' Donald", so it does have potential.

...or the Brady mode, where it misses the WR and throws a water bottle

Favre mode would be the scariest.  All the receivers would end up on IR with broken hands/fingers.

 

I wonder if it has an Uncle Rico mode?  Can it throw a football a quarter mile over them mountains?

It’s programmed to be realistic.  This one is the gambling addiction model. Was caught hanging with Charles Barkley at a casino.

CR, it's all fun and games now.. do you not see someday where they claim humans are too frail to play so all we have is robots doing this stuff? Battlebots Football.  Madden is essentially the same game if you think about it.  Humans have been replaced in more complicated tasks than football.  This is the harbinger of one big bummer that I can see coming true.  Sure, it is all "oohs" and "ahhs" now.. that is how it always starts!  :thmup:

I would start to worry about cheating and hacking if it were made by Boston Dynamics haha.

Hahaha I was about to say, Boston already working on a way to hack the robot. That’s ok they’ll just sign him after he’s cut, him and Belichick should have a lot in common.

Ballard said this about the new QB:

 

“Look, we want guys that represent the horseshoe and the robot can flat out play. When we watched the film, we were just blown away. There was about 5 other robots on our list to target and it just worked out perfectly.”

A drone swoops across the field and catches the robots pass.  Ballard smiles at Irsay and points to his famous notebook...page 230.   Manning walks out of the shadows and says.... I like it.

    • Sigh...........   This is beyond really frustrating.    You're accusing me of things I literally haven't done.     That's very Irish of you.    Really annoying.      You ask for benefit of the doubt while never giving it out yourself.   I've put certain things into bold.   I'll try taking them one at a time.   Your first bold...   that this is not me saying that teams that aren't doing this are stupid.    I'm sorry, but when you declare that you've come up that you think is clearly and obvously better,  that you think you've re-invented the wheel and sliced bread,  it certainly feels like you're casting a disapporving eye toward any team that's not doing things your preferred way as a matter of course.   Then you claim,  that I want Ballard in the building ASAP,  but not before January.    Let me see if you understand this word.....   NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!   Was that clear enough for you?       If Irsay had decided in the spring of 16 to fire Grigson and hire Ballard in the spring, I would've been ok with it.   It's not desirable,  but if Irsay made that call THEN,  I'd be ok with it.     Where YOU mis-read me,  is that roughly 95 of owners make this decision during the season.    They see things they don't like and they decide during the season to make a change -- typically when the season ends.    Sometimes, an exec will be fired during the season and someone like Dorsey comes in during the season to oversee things and learn about the organization.    I'm fine with that.  There's no record of me opposing that.   I start with January,  because that's when the business season starts for front office and coaches.   Period.   The NFL views it as preferrable.    But making the switch in the spring is doable, as I've said in every post, and which you have ignored or confused badly.    But if Ballard had been hired in the spring of 16,  I'd have been fine with it.   This isn't the first time I've said some version of this.    This is not some ah-ha moment.   As to the bold declaring that there are tons of qualified guys and that CHOOSING the best guy is another story.   Here's my reponse to that.   No.   nonsense.     They are the same story.    They are connected.    Because you play down the fact that most GM's and most HC's fail.   They get fired before their 4 or 5 year contracts expire.   The owner has seen enough and makes a change.   Saying there are always qualified guys is meaningless.    Because FINDING the best guy who will succeed, isn't just important,  it's EVERYTHING.   All 32 teams can announce they hired a qualified guy.    That isn't hard.    But the vast majority of teams are introducing his successor in a few years.    That's why a franchise like Pittsburgh has very little turnover either in HC or the front office.   While franchises like the Jets or Buffalo or Miami are introducing someone new so often, you can practically set your watch to it.     Generally speaking,  the new GM has a long history of scouting and evaluating talent.   The new HC has a history of success, both as a position coach and a coordinator.   They can easily be called qualified,  (though new guys like Kliff Kingsbury and Zack Taylor do NOT have a long track record of success)  But the vast majority of hires...   are soon enough fired.   That doesn't speak well to their qualifications.      As to you meaning what you're saying...   Of course you mean what you say and I stated that clearly.  I don't know why this should rub you the wrong way.  I literally wrote that I know you mean what you say.    I said what I said as a rhetorical point,  not an attacking point.    My ultimate point was made at the end of my first post to you.   You typically write persuasive arguments.    You're able to frequently made me see your viewpoint.    But not here.    You accuse me of not considering your argument.    I'm sorry,  I am considering what you write.   But I don't see the typical high quality Superman argument.   I don't see points that connect.    Your argument feels like the one you'd make for doable.   It doesn't convince me at all that it's preferable.  
    • Yeah, Ballard said he's a patient guy, and he doesn't mind waiting to pick. We almost traded back from 34 as well if Rock wasn't there. I personally love the "trade back" strategy at the end of round 1, and wouldn't mind doing it in most every draft. A late 1st for a mid-second and early/mid second (from the Redskins) over two drafts is fine with me!
    • Haven't done research on the 2020 draft yet, but if it ends up having an elite WR or OT, I wouldn't mind trading up this year. We'll have to see where we finish (hopefully 32 ), and make a decision from there. Ballard landing the Redskins 2nd rounder may be a brilliant move.
    • I had us 9-7 just based on guessing/hoping/predicting Luck would be healthy and play great. I was right but a lucky guess, I guess  . I thought that would get us a 6th seed. We won 10 games which got us in.
    • For the first time in a while, I am impressed with the Colts development of players. If this current trend continues, a lot of opinions will change.
