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.

    • He was signed off the street by the Niners. But he was a "non-vested" player, which means he doesn't have enough years of service to reach unrestricted free agency. So whatever team he's on would have his exclusive rights for 2020 and 2021, whether he was claimed on waivers or signed as a free agent. Then he can be a restricted free agent in 2022.   His contract technically expires at the end of the 2019 league year, but the Colts can tender him and effectively extend his rookie contract, one year at a time, until 2023. (And at that point, they could franchise tag him, assuming that provision still exists in the new CBA.)   As a UDFA, the CBA allows him to be signed to a veteran extension after two years of service; for drafted players, it's three years. Until then, his contract is based on the rookie wage scale, which was determined by the CBA.   A recent case study for this is Kenny Moore. He signed with the Patriots as a UDFA in 2017, then was waived at cut down, and the Colts claimed him. After 2018, he had two years of service, so he was eligible to sign a veteran extension, which is what he did in the 2019 offseason. If he had not agreed to an extension, the Colts could have tendered him as an ERFA for 2019, and then as an RFA for 2020.
    • IF Ballard and Reich still think JB is the answer at this point, then we need to start thinking about who is running what at Colt world HQs.
    • Everything he wrote then, is still true today.   You simply are not going to win a SB with JB as a long term answer.
    • This again? I don't get where this idea comes from. Who is this "proven NFL QB" that's available(or will be)?   I am definitely in the replace JB camp, but I just don't see any proven NFL QBs that are available. There maybe someone unsuspected come free, but IMO none of the QBs who are generally considered available or likely to be this off season are worth going after.  Bridgewater, Dalton. Foles, Newton ... A couple are slightly better than JB, but not enough of an improvement to make it worth the investment. Might as well just keep JB for the last year of his deal while you roll the dice on a rookie if those are the "proven NFL QB" choices.
