I sort of dislike the total yards measurement now that the modern QBs have so many rules advantages that lead to more yards during a season not to mention more longevity playing.  Not really a big deal or anything just something that has always irked me.

 

I'm also not a fan of the Super Bowl argument either because that minimizes the importance of the other guys around the QB which to me doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

 

QB is a crazy position though.  So many other elements influence the end result that they end up with more blame and accolades than they deserve I think.  But it does make for great bar conversations.  :thmup:

Looks like statistically Peyton will always be 3rd in Yards and TD's. Can't see anyone playing now passing him in either that is behind him. Nobody else is close.

What is funny is I posted yesterday we could go 11-5 with the schedule we have. I still say 10-6 but 11-5 is realistic. Texans are missing 2 huge players the rest of the year in Fuller and Roby, we will beat the Jags as well and the Raiders look bad this past Sunday. Who knows?

It's also the 29th time he's faced the Raiders, he's currently 18-10 against them, the majority of those losses coming within the last 5 seasons. He already has the most wins against that franchise of any opposing quarterback, and hopefully he can add to that impressive total today.

Rivers was very efficient today, and added another game winning drive to his resume with the TD pass to Pascal with less than 2 minutes to go.

 

Who said he wasn't clutch?

Rivers was most clutch at K.C. in 2018 dropping a clutch 4th down dime then a clutch TD then a clutch 2 pt conversion for the win.

That’s because in his prime Rivers was on their level.  

I know. The zip on that Hilton pass was nice. If only we could get hilton, Pittman,  and pascal going in the same game the offense would be  unstoppable

Yeah.  Pittman is playing like a rookie.  He makes plays to show you the flash and what’s to come but he makes a lot of rookie mistakes too if you watch him over the course of a game.  That’s okay because he’s a rookie and that’s how rookies learn.  They tend to be a bit inconsistent and he has been but I am not worried about him.  I am excited about him for the future.

 

Pascal is solid.  He’s going to have a game like today maybe once a season where he’s the star WR but most of the time he’s going to have two or three catches that go largely unnoticed but are really key when you watch tape back.  He also does the little things like block.  He’s a guy you want on your team. 
 

Hilton looks to finally be on the same page as Rivers and I think is making a late season bid to the Colts for a one or two year deal.

Sunday 12/27/20 at the Steelers will be Rivers 239th consecutive start and he will now be 58 consecutive starts behind Brett Favre's all time record of 297. (Including the playoffs it will be Rivers 250th consecutive start which is also 2nd all time, and 71 behind Favre's total record of 321).

Rivers is also only 1 td behind Marino for 5th place all time.

If it is his last game, let's hope it goes better than Marino's last game.

Same opponent & stadium (although I think we bring Philip back next year) but that 62-7 beatdown that the Jags laid on the Dolphins was a postseason game - I'm not positive, but I think some Miami players recorded a rap song before the playoffs because I vaguely remember sportscasters mockingly playing clips of the song along with "highlights" of the beating!

As much as I hope he comes back to give us one more year for a rookie to sit or see what Eason has it might be a good thing if he retires on his own.  I don’t want Wentz but I would be ok with it if he decides to retire. It kind of forces the colts to start the clock on the future. Whether that be Eason, draft pick, or someone like Wentz. I don’t think Darnold will be available. This is why it sucks we didn’t address LT last season. If he retires we are forced to address both. I would also be ok with Stafford if he retires on his own. But maybe this is how the we finally get the future at QB started.

    • They are likely kicking the can down the road, and the negative consequence is higher cap numbers for those players in future seasons, and greater cap penalties to move on from those players in future seasons. The thing is there's no much else they can do. they're set to be nearly $70m over the cap in 2021, and other than these restructures, they would not be able to get under the cap by the start of the new league year. They would have to cut or trade all of their highly paid players.
    • I feel the hype about Carl Lawson is from a combination of people who haven't really watched him play, and who overrate "pressures" by assuming that all pressures are equally disruptive.    Lawson is a tough, physical, high effort guy, he tackles well, plays the run reasonably well, he has decent size, and he would fit nicely as a DE for us. He's not a dynamic pass rusher, and I don't think he ever would be a dynamic pass rusher.   He has some quickness and speed, good speed to power, but he's not the kind of explosive pass rusher that blows up the other team's blocking schemes. He has below average bend and closing speed, and he takes a lot of steps, which explains his tragically poor three cone. He also has below average length, and gets neutralized by good blockers. This is all obvious on his tape, it was obvious on his college tape, and it's why he went in the 4th round.   TomDiggs mentioned Lawson's knockdowns/hits and hurries. PFF recorded six edge rushers with at least QB 15 hits; despite the fact that Lawson had 24 hits, he only had five sacks, which is the least sacks among those six players. In fact, there were ten edges with fewer than 15 QB hits, but with at least ten sacks. PFF has 24 edges with at least 30 pressures; Lawson had 34 hurries, but was tied for fifth fewest sacks among those 24 players. In fact, there were five edges with fewer hurries than Lawson, but at least ten sacks.   My point is that QB hits and pressures only show a player that manages to get near the QB at some point during the play. Without context, they don't necessarily show a player that makes a definite impact on the play. That's why I value PFF's pass rush productivity (PRP) stat, because sacks are weighted more heavily than hits and pressures. And that makes sense because a sack ends the play. A QB can be pressured, even hit, and still make a positive play. Recognizing a sack as nearly always a negative play for the offense, PRP shows the difference between a guy who gets near the QB, and a pass rusher who makes plays for the defense. Sometimes the overlap is not as great as you might think.   Lawson's PRP was 8.5, tied for #18, well separated from guys like Bosa (10.6) and Watt (9.7). In general, a player with a bunch of total pressures, but low sack numbers, like Lawson, is a guy who gets a bunch of pass rush snaps but doesn't have the length, bend and closing speed to get home often enough. This is why guys like Trey Hendrickson and Leonard Floyd can have a third fewer total pressures, but twice as many sacks as Lawson (Hendrickson also had 80 fewer pass rush snaps). And Lawson gets a ton of pass rush snaps because he plays for a bad team with no other good edge rushers, so as long as he's healthy he'll have a lot of pressures, but he'll probably never be a big sack guy.   He's Trey Flowers. Better 40, same agility, not as long, mid level edge rusher who is well rounded and a good guy to have on your team, but not a dominant pass rusher. I can't see offering him $14m/year to not sack the QB. Any projection that has him as a big time sack guy is unrealistic, IMO.
    • It's nice to see Pittman, Smith and Okereke get some love.
    • Did I misread your post?   Did you not say you were in favor of moving Nelson to LT?   That if we’re going to pay him top dollar, it would be better to do it with him as our LT instead of at LG?    That wasn’t you?    I’m sorry, I thought that’s what I responded to.... 
    • With me, road whites are off-limits.  As to the blue tops, as much as i do dig the color rush blues, I’m an old-school-uni guy, and would lean to white pants.   I’m in Penn State country, and there are some similarities i guess.   I do think improvements can be made in the striping.  Minimal enough cahange to keep purists happy, but could “update the uni.  Perhaps 3 stripes down the leg and middle of helmet.  Middle one thicker than sides.  Not crazy wide.... tasteful like the stripes on a shelby. The middle stripe could be horseshoes similar to the way seattle uses imagry.  Maybe a large horseshoe on each shoulder that circles down around the number.  Minimal...... but updated..... without losing the “brand.”   Remember that outdated font that was recently retired?  A small “refresh” might be nice.   I’d like to see a “ghosted” image of like padding texture or like metalplate image (barely noticeable) at shoulder pads, knee and thigh pads.  Like a 3d effect.   I remember oregon once had ghosted wings on the shoulders that were cool, bit not “too much.”
