Most overrated on the roster is Chad Kelly,  has never played a single regular season game and people think he’s the next Peyton Manning

I’d give you a rec just for having Beet as an avatar, but you don’t get one since Vinny isn’t on the roster.     And he’s still the GOAT.  

PrincetonTiger I assume that is most people's problem who refuse to acknowledge but he didnt choose to player for them, they were smart to get him. If he were a Colt this board like most every other board would have him at the top of their list.  I cant stand the Ravens but the numbers dont lie and again even Bill Belicheck who has long been Vinnys biggest fan said Tucker was the greatest

Tucker can’t hold the tee for guys like MA and JS

Guess you werent trying to be funny, we all assumed you were

 

I think that's just you.  Everyone else seems to agree that (for the moment) Vinny is the GOAT, or at least higher on the list than Tucker, for now.

 

If you're already prepared to elevate Tucker over Vinny, that's fine, that's your opinion.

 

I just (respectfully) disagree.  As do most of the other people that have chimed in on this thread.  But that's not to say Tucker won't eventually be the GOAT.  He is on a team that looks primed for a few SB runs in the near future, so he could have some kicks that are more iconic than Vinny and take the GOAT mantle sooner rather than later.  :hat:

 

In the ICONIC words of Denny Green:  "If you wanna crown 'em, then crown their *"

Sorry but all experts say otherwise if he retired right now, that not much an argument.  Glad you like the explanation and found it cool, you gave us a chuckle and we need it with covid here running wild in Florida....but if you life is on the line...dont risk it with anyone else than the best ever by the numbers, you will thank me later.....

Where's the list for those that say he wouldnt get in if his career ended today ?  hmmm ?

 

The following from ESPN (from 2 days ago) seems to be the general sentiment regarding Tucker:

 

"While Tucker would be the overwhelming choice as the best kicker in football, the Hall has elected just two full-time kickers in its history. Adam Vinatieri will eventually join Jan Stenerud and Morten Andersen, but those guys averaged 22 seasons in the league. Tucker is only nine years in, and while he can kick for a long time if he stays healthy, asking anyone in the NFL to do anything for 13 more seasons is risky."

I would absolutely use any bad year Tucker has when looking at his entire career, you have to when being objective.....Jim Brown was better then E.Smith but played many fewer games and seasons why is longevity only a kicker requirement ? Is George Blanda better than Tucker too ?  When asked Billcheck didnt say Vinny nor Gostkowski two players he knows better than anyone he said Tucker......hmmm

Jim Brown played in the 60's. Emmitt Smith played against players that Jim Brown never had to face size or speed wise that Emmitt played. Emmitt is the best RB ever and holds the record for most TDs and yards. Emmitt never quit on his team, retired early and played with a broken shoulder and dominated against Lawrence Taylor with HFA on the line. Give me Emmitt all day, 7 days a week.

It's all opinions unless we uses stats, i said that from the start,,,,,,,no %..lol

If you go by stats, Emmitt is the best as far as RB's but the eye test tells anyone that too. Dude played with 1 arm and gained 200 yards at NY with HFA on the line, RB's like Brown and Sanders would cry over a stub toe.

    • I’d rather not win the super bowl with rivers then win the Super Bowl with brady. I hate brady lol
    • That is so short sighted.   The way to get to the playoffs in the NFL is with high powered NFL passing offenses (been the case since the Peyton days). However, once you get there, you are playing very good defenses as well. Plus, I don't need to explain the rope-a-dope the Colts pulled from 32nd ranking rushing D to win the SB. Not to mention the 31st/32nd ranked defense in the Patriots going to the SB in 2011. I don't need to remind you the Saints, who were 25th or 26th overall D in the NFL beating the Colts in SB 44.   Bottom line - regardless of where you finished and how you finished in the regular season, good coaching helps you turn things around and your regular season ranks is not what wins you championships, your adjustments and ability to maximize strengths and minimize weaknesses gets magnified come playoff time.    If you look at metrics, we did have once in a decade D like the 2000 Ravens with the 2013 Seahawks and the 2015 Broncos that played under even more QB friendly rules than the 2000 Ravens. So, yes, building such Ds is definitely possible with the high rate of draft picks working out like the 2013 Seahawks or high hit rate in free agency like the 2015 Broncos. You are not going to stop the best of offenses to under 20 points most of the time but if you can limit their possessions and keep them in that sweet spot of under 25, you have a puncher's chance of scoring just enough to win, for which you need a good defense for those timely stops. 
    • I think you're mistaken on several fronts.   First, in general, my point was that either our offense has to be better, or our defense has to be better. We can't have a B level offense AND defense and really expect to contend. So if we keep Rivers, the defense has to be better, especially against good QBs.    Second, if you only focus on the scores in the SB, then yeah, you might conclude that defense is overrated, but that's silly because there are a lot of games to be won to get to the SB in the first place. You gave the 2017 Eagles as an example, and they gave up 33 points in the SB, but only 10 points in the divisional game (only scored 15), and 7 points in the conference championship. They went 13-3 and were a contender to begin with partly due to their top five defense.    The 2018 Patriots were a better defense than they got credit for (they were 10th in net yards/pass attempt, 7th in points allowed, and 5th in turnovers), and it was their defense that set the tone in the SB, only allowing three points. It's weird that you'd even use that team as an example.   And last year's Chiefs team had it's strong points defensively. They won the last six games of the season to get the #1 seed, giving up an average of 11.5 points/game, and they were 7th in points allowed over the season.   Of course you have to have a good offense, I've never said otherwise. But you also need a defense that can make some plays. 
    • Crowd noise?    Sorry....   I don’t understand...  
    • The Eagles are not as bad shape as Saints, clearly, but looks like they would only have to cut 4 guys then restructure a few.     Problem with Wentz for them is trading him only frees up a little over $800k in cap space this year(2021).   Now they can wait till after June 1st amd save more this year and put some dead cap till next year, but similar to Michael Thomas they would have to be operating under the cap before then.
