Indy Star - Kravits,- SB contenders and early line is Pats Eagles

Top AFC choices

1. New England Patriots. Sorry if I just made you do a spit-take with your Cheerios. But it's hard to bet against a team that went 14-2 last season with a young defense that wasn't quite ready to take the next big step. Give this group another year of maturation, and they're going to be beasts.

This has nothing to do with the questionable additions of defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth and wide receiver Chad Ochocinco; it has everything to do with the amazing way coach Bill Belichick has revamped his team on the run in recent years -- a better job, we should mention, than the Colts

Very few QBs are good at throwing under pressure. Last year when Peyton had his string of INTs, he was getting pressured like crazy and the O-line was playing brutally.

Superman,

i AM GLAD YOIU Sid that, I hear so often how (insert top QB name here) can't throw under pressure, well DUH why do you think that is such a key to every teams game plan no matter who they are facing.

The only time I've seen Brady fail under pressure is when the Oline gets manhandled by a Dline and no one is open ta boot. Go figure:)

As it's already been pointed out, if you get pressure on any QB, you disrupt everything. The notion that Brady can't throw under pressure is also pretty difficult to support. He's built his reputation on it in lots of ways. Just because his line, more often than not, protects him well, that doesn't mean that when there is pressure he falters.

But if you need more than that, here's a listing of QB ratings from 2010 for blitz situations.

Brady was #2 behind Rodgers. Manning uncharacteristically did not crack the top 10 last year, but I think we're all aware that he had virtually no continuity on his line. Still, if I used your logic, I'd simply say that Manning can't throw with pressure in his face. Which I know is very, very untrue.

With Shaun Ellis it looks like maybe the Pats are going 4-3 all the way.

With not a lot of great LBs and none drafted or got in FA this may indeed be the case.

We shall see:)

That D-Line for the Pats will be number one in rushing yards allowed this year at the very least. And with a young defense behind them that will benefit from another year together AND the leadership of the new vets....Take a look at the Pats schedule, because it may be another 14-2 year, if not better.

Do you think this would this mean you'd see Spikes in the middle and kick Mayo to the weakside ? I'd also be curious to know who'd man the other OLB spot. I think a 4-3 means Cunningham moves up to the line, but who else can play the outside spot? Ninkovich?

Listening to the Felger show they responded to Belichick's press conf where he said when asked about a 4-3..."We're not changing our technique" which would be the two gap, but we "might change alignments" (4-3) depending on game plan/opponent. That tells me the 3-4 and 4-3 as he's done in the past.

BB has said many times he doesn't know what he's got until around week 4..or even later. Because he does build a different team each season.

So I'm retracting the 4-3 only:)

heck Ellis or Haynesworth might not even be on the roster opening day:)

    • I feel sorry (not sorry) for the person who bought my 5 tickets for this game. I was shocked someone bought them for that price. 
    • Im all in with this idea. Training Camp > 2 Preseason games > 17 or 18 game regular season
    • Believe me I've been in Wilsons group of supporters since we drafted him but something seems off with him this summer. Desir, Moore, Rock, Hairston,and I look for Tell to make it over Wilson. Then Hooker, Geathers, Odum, and Willis at safety. Then we keep Milton for his special teams ability. I know he isn't a very good corner, but his special teams play is excellent.
    • The bolded is both funny and accurate.   So you are saying get rid of all pre-season games, correct?  Which is also fine by me, the teams may need to have rosters expanded a little.
    • I did some rough math with incomplete information, which is perfect for posting on a message board...   The NFL gets at least $6B/year in TV revenue, split between 32 teams is about $187m/year, per team. Over a 17 week regular season, that's about $11m each week. Based on the Packers financials, they make about $7m in revenue per home game.    Take away one preseason game at $7m (which is probably high; I get the feeling teams don't usually sell out in preseason, which means parking, concessions and memorabilia also take a hit), but add two weeks to the regular season, and each team comes out ahead.   And my proposal is you go to a 19 week regular season, with three bye weeks. So that extra revenue is only coming from being on TV for two extra weeks, not from tickets, concessions, etc. That also means you're not taking on additional overhead; you're actually reducing your overhead, because you're getting rid of a fully staffed preseason event, and not adding any regular season events. I think my proposal is a net gain for each team, solely on the basis of dominating TV for two extra weeks in the regular season.   I also think my proposal is better for the players and the quality of the game. If each team has three byes, you can schedule TNF only after a bye week -- which takes care of the low quality TNF games and probably improves ratings, increasing future profitability.
