Can someone Explain?

Recommended Posts

Last night watching the Patriots / Steelers game, and the commentators were talking about the Pats upcoming schedule.

 

The comment was made that the Pats had a very easy schedule this year,  but it was time, they deserved this break. :scratch:  wth?

All Pats schedules have been easy since Belichick and Brady showed up. 42 year old Brady played against a guy last night and also played against his dad.

I get that.

 

I was questioning the remark:

"they deserve a break"...????

Maybe it means that they deserve a break from criticism for their questionable actions? (which they bring on themselves.) They already get a break by being in the same division as the Dolphins and Jets! 

 

I didn't watch the whole game, so was it Collinsworth who made that comment? it sounds like something he would say.

Yes. He made the statement. Who knows if it was sarcasm or not.  I didn't think so, but then again it's  hard to tell with him.

Sometimes it is hard to differentiate, I agree. I just don't think anyone in their right mind would go on a national broadcast to say 'poor patriots' right now and actually mean it ;)

I heard that to and I think it was tongue and cheek.

I haven't heard it but I am sure it was sarcasm. That division has stunk for years.

    • The Steelers are playing with their 2nd stringer also...
    • There is also two other WRs at the bottom of the screen coming open on that same play. Smh. Options everywhere
    • I hope you’ll be proven right.  I fear you won’t.   I will say that teams like JAX and TEN had more invested in their high first-round picks Bortles and Mariota than the Colts do in JB, who we traded for in a moment of immediate need.   That said, it just seems more common in the league to wait too long based on a belief that a player’s full potential is high and just around the corner.
    • they are in the playoff hunt, but not many people think they will win a super bowl.  most of the top teams have really good QBs
    • What I'm getting at, though, is that regardless of his circumstances, it's possible to evaluate a QB on the basis of his performance, abilities, traits, and perceived potential to improve. That's my viewpoint.   Of course, the rougher the circumstances and the greater the number of variables, the more complicated the evaluation becomes. But while the receivers haven't been great, we can still look at JB and see what he does well and what he doesn't do well, we can reach reasonable conclusions about why he excels or struggles in certain areas, and we can project whether he can reasonably improve and become a player worthy of an investment of time and money, and worthy of building around. Sure, it's somewhat complicated, but it's not all that difficult, IMO.   What the Colts do at QB in the offseason will depend, to a large degree, on their evaluation of JB. I am confident that they will not say 'well, JB had a rough set of circumstances, let's wait and see what he does next year.' If they strongly feel that he's good enough to build around, that will affect how seriously they pursue other options at the position. But if they aren't sold on him, I don't think they'll just say 'let's give him another year, let's give him another year.'
