I read that somebody walked too close to it and Quentin Nelson took them down 

 

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...

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.

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

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?

talk about the ultimate pocket passer. It'll never get sacked haha 

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.”

    • I thought we needed this.
    • I'll admit that I was not impressed with his running.   I guess I just expected more from all the hype.  Hopefuly Hines, Taylor and a bit of Wilkens can provide what is needed.  
    • I don't know man.  you sound like my wife now.    I don't think he is going to be a good edge runner.  Sometimes we say something like he can't make the edge, meaning he's not good at making the edge. Only Siths deal in absolutes.  Hyperbole is used in this world.   I can make the edge if there is a sniper in the crowd taking out the defense.  
    • Not really.  I just find it incredibly annoying when people get upset and start complaining about things, and then go way overboard making things up that aren't true.    However, nobody said he was a good edge runner.  You said he couldn't get the edge.  Others have said he can because he did.  You keep moving the goalposts to avoid having to admit you made an incorrect statement.  First it was, 'he can't get the edge', but now it's 'well he did and he got 5 yards but I thought he should have gotten more'.    The lengths that some people go to so as to avoid having to admit they may have been wrong about something simply astounds me.    makes sense...looked like an RPO.  I don't think there was ever any intention of Brissett running the ball himself.
