Unitas. Under today's rules he would be unstoppable. 

Different eras and different types of players. You cant really compare. Back then Olinemen and Dlinemen weighed like 240 lbs.. DBs probably ran like 4.7s... Basically the she sheer anount of athletic freaks and competitiveness is far higher now than back then.

I use to think that way when I was young as well about players that played in the 30's and 40's.. But the truth is that their were a lot of great athletes in the 50' and 60's.  DB were not as fast because they were bigger. You could beat up the WR in those days. WR  had to be bigger as well. It would be hard for TY to play in that ERA because they would hit him all over the field. As for Oline in those days that had zero rule protection. DLine could slap them on the side of the head as part of their pass rush move. QB's could not slide to be protected they were full time players. Their was no in the grasp rule. You could hit a QB anywhere, High, in the head etc.  Unitas was throwing to WR who were being held all over the field. He has zero protection from the officials. He set records that were well ahead of his time.

It's entirely possible that Brady made Belichick.

 

Have you been watching the Pats this year?

 

I know Brady isn't in his prime anymore, but he is surrounded by a pretty average supporting cast on offense, and it is showing.

 

It looks like his elite HC/Defense are going to carry him to another SB this year.  Again.

Aaron Rodgers. I don't know who throws a better ball.

Drew Brees does.  Most accurate passer all time both in the stats and by the eye test (at least in my opinion).  But you could eeny meeny Brees, Rodgers and Manning and I would be happy with either of them.  The only reason I'd prefer Manning is because he was the youngest of the three when, in my opinion, were at the earliest considered "in their prime."

 

Manning figured it out by 23 but was leading the league in yards and TDs by 24.

Brees and Rodgers have an argument for 25, but Brees hit stride 27 and Rodgers at 26.

But then you'd get fresh groceries AND a refund AND the manager promises that in the future you will have the best bagboy that has worked at that company since Kurt Warner. :funny:

Correct on Peyton, not even debatable no QB is capable of doing more with less. Mahomes possibly but needs to prove it. I think after watching our game againt the chiefs it ahowed Mahomes can be rattled by pressure.

Don't get me wrong, I love me some PM, and he would be my choice as well, but even HE can get rattled by pressure.  Do you remember the SuperBowl loss to the Seahawks?

    • We were discussing the overreaction to the tweet not the play         
    • My God, you're right...   It's a conspiracy, man.   If Reich know tha hez company loyal to stand by the nonsense and the obvimously lack of talent an holes on diz roster then then he knows that if he shows JB can't reaf his progrezions den the opposing teams will have the advantage! Reich try to tank for a top 10 pick! We all know it!   BACK TO THE PILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!               *I lost today's internal battle, because of my brother to the north... A certain south park song I am dieing to use as justification
    • If VM is saying it, it's likely because he's parroting what management is saying. Not saying it's not true, or true, just saying there's always a narrative. 
    • The lack of light front carries is either play calling, or JB's choice. Light front carries may also be down simply because of down and distance when facing light fronts. I'm guessing this goes at least partly to JB's struggles with reading Ds.   And using "stacked box" stats are very imperfect. It's not always about what how many are in the box, it's what those guys do when the ball is snapped. The stacked box stat typically only measures 8+ defenders in the box at the time of snap. What it doesn't tell you is what the front seven does. Do the LBs play the run or go into coverage is the more accurate measurement, along with how much nickel and dime coverage you see.    If I were a D vs JB, I'd go standard package (no nickel/dime) most of the time, and have the LBs play run or shallow crossing, which is what we are generally seeing. 4 DBs on standard downs is sufficient vs our current O.  I'm going to say Reich and JB are making it more predictable. If the passing game is more successful, and the play calling isn't as conservative, we're not having this problem at all. Like I said in a previous post, very few team have RB1s that are dynamic in both running and passing. And honestly that's not Reich's O. Mack is 12 of 14 (yes only 14), so he's been very reliable. It's more lack of targets and play calling if anything.  He is an APB. An APB does not run it between the tackles often, and that's what Reich typically calls for him... An APB is a change of pace back that is usually more edge, sweep, receiving,  and gimmicky. I'd say his "average" play, is a product of use type. White rushing is 32 attempts for 104 yards, and a 3.3 average. Hines is 22 for 66 and 3.0 with mostly between the T rushes. Last year with Luck, Hines was 85/315 and 3.7 rushing.... do you see the difference....  Yes it's rare to have a stud #1 RB that excels in both. I think we are under utilizing Mack in the passing game, and I think Hines is hampered by both rush play calling, and by JB in the passing game. That's what they numbers suggest anyway.
