Okay.  I had to settle myself down after that earlier game. 

 

I'm back. I love watching Allen, and I hope they continue the script from this weekend. Road teams winning on last minute FG.  Wouldn't that be something?

 

But I don't plan on getting too worked up over the outcome of this game.

I just made me a Crown with ice. This game coming up Buff at KC is 50/50. Man we were so close being in this mix, I told you Tannehill would choke :thmup: not bad homer simpson GIF- I put money on Cincy, Tom is out and Tennessee lost so it is all good. 

 

I don't blame TN's loss on RT. Henry was just not the same. 3.1 YPC, and he had no burst. RT is a complimentary guy, not a primary.

Where did you see that? Pat McAfee said the colts were very competitive in pursuing him but the cost was too high.

Kevin Bowen said Ballard did not believe Stafford would get them where they needed to be and was not going to sign off on it. Now of course if it was only a 4th round pick take the risk. But he didn’t believe in him enough. Sounds like maybe Ballard was kind of on the fence and because he couldn’t make a decision Rams came in last minute.

I think the cost was always too high for Ballard. Then the rams came in with a bombshell offer

Where you going to get all the offensive weapons the Rams have.


we had $69 million in cap space coming into last off season.  We could’ve attracted some people here.  We already have JT, MPJ, and Hines.  Make a splash on a TE and another WR and tbh stafford could work with that.  Would have probably also forced to sign a DE due to us having a first round pick.  Maybe even resigning autry.

Mahomes Mahomesing.....

 

Nice superman diver. Fun so far.


Going to be a barn burner. Both these QBs can run, both can pass like a cannon, and both are in the prime of their careers.

 

Next Peyton vs Brady rivalry, IMO

Yeah I give Tannehill hell (He is ok) but I don't think he is the QB for them to win a SB is why. That other RB they have, Foreman had a 50 yard run and Tannehill threw an INT right after that. To me Tannehill is like Wentz, he just makes too many dumb mistakes. I like Jimmy G because he just wins. His stats don't stand out but on a final drive he comes through it seems. He just wins. Henry looked a bit rusty but he still looked good, just not great.

I don’t think the players were there for all that to happen. I think teams would’ve gouged us on the market.

I don't know what to believe but I did post in here saying I would take Stafford over Wentz.

week 1 wasn’t someone saying TY has been better than Kupp the last 2 seasons lmao

 

I was being sarcastic obviously, but on the serious side...

 

  • This is a perfect example of McVay>>>>>Reich
  • Kupp runs mostly slot routes, and is allowed to run a ton of 9s, slants, etc.. Routes for space... 
  • Reich uses Pascal in the slot, who blocks a lot, and runs mostly short possession type routes.
  • Kupp is not a fast guy. He's a 4.62 guy. TY could run the same routes Kupp is running, and TY could run them faster, and as good. But Reich won't play TY in the slot, nor will he allow him to run hardly any slants or 9s.

Maybe TY will play for the Rams next, everyone is going there anyways :)

Purely my opinion, but don't see the AFC beating the NFC this year. 

I think the Rams win next week, and go on to win it all. 

But with Mahomes, you always have a chance.

Chiefs and Bills D make good adjustments, that’s overlooked

Jimmy has a much better team around him.

TN goes where Henry takes them. 

Henry IMO did not look good at all. No burst. Did not run better late, like he normally does.

If we had a Cupp Reich would use him. We dont. No TY can’t do that anymore.

I could see TY going somewhere and having much more production than in Reich's scheme. 

Using a 5-10 guy to post up in the flat and sideline is such a freaking waste. 

TY can still burn the seam, and still get over the top on the outside.

Sorry, but you simply have zero clue about usage, routes, and scheme. 

 

Kupp is 4.62 guys. He's not fast. 

TY used to run 4.3s, but he's still 4.4s, and still faster than Kupp. 

 

Reich asks TY to go post up on the sideline and in the flat, something you shouldn't ask a 5-10 (at best) guy to do. 

McVay asks Kupp to run slants and 9s, mostly from the slot. He has the second most air yards in the league. 

TY can still run slants and 9s, and would have more separation than Kupp. 

 

Kupp's separation (1.66), even when running much more conducive (to separation) routes, is still less than TY's separation (1.78) even though TY gets a bunch of crappy routes that naturally don't get separation....

Have you disregarded the Bengals?


Bengals D has been the surprise for me and Burrow is sneaky with his offense playing clock control to protect his D. Eventually we think it’s going to end. Who knows!!!

 

You saw what the Bills did and Mahomes still pull that TD off?? The Chiefs will be ready for the Bengals. They had them by the throat up 28-14 and Spags started playing Cover 0 blitzing against the Bengals wideout power, won’t repeat that mistakes again. The Chiefs or Bills will be ready in the AFCCG, IMO

    • It wasn't a great season (great would be making the Finals) but I would classify it as a very good one, one reason why is, we overachieved. Making the Final 4 is a very good accomplishment and winning 47 games to stay out of the playin scenario is pretty respectable. We also won a Game 7 at NY in the Semi's which is almost impossible to do no matter who they have out there. They did have Brunson and Divincenzo for that Game 7 for most of the game. Brunson had to leave because of a broken hand late in the 3rd but by then we were up big anyway.    Even though we got swept by Boston, it didn't even really feel like a sweep. We lost both home games without Haliburton by only 3 points and gave away Game 1 losing in OT and that was at Boston. They really only kicked our butt in Game 2.    All in all, we just lost to a slightly better team who has been in the Conference Finals for many years - so their experience in closing games was better.    We need to add 1 more piece and it needs to be someone that just focuses on being physical in the paint defensively and wants to Rebound more than anything. Turner is more of a stretch Center that has a score first mentality, he is a great shot blocker but isn't physical enough when guys come into the paint.   There are 5 levels to basketball: Level 1 - Just making the Playoffs (above average) Level 2 - Winning a Playoff series (good) Level 3 - Winning 2 Playoff series = making the Conference Finals (very good) Level 4 - Winning 3 Playoff series = Winning the Conference (great) Level 5 - Being a World Champion   -We reached Level 3   I won't be a sore loser so I will congratulate @NFLUpand the other Boston fans for winning the East. They are just better as of now.
    • I'm sorry I misstated that it was Saturday that moved him back, IIRC Saturday had stated that Smith would be staying at RT and they were moving Raimann to LT and that's what I am remembering. Still never stated it was a long term plan, I even said it was Reich grasping at straws to try and fix the O-line.   It's the simple argument of someone stating that something never happened, when it had happened. Now you're somehow trying to argue that while trying to put words in my mouth. I never said it was a long term thing. YOU and I are on the same page and the same opinion that he should remain a RT and shouldn't be changed to RG
    • Smith had a career year when he was in there last year on a bad knee.
    • You also said it was Saturday who undid it.  It wasn’t it was Reich the very next game.  That’s what I am pushing back against that this was some long term plan the Colts had.  I think most see the difference in a one game throw something at the wall to see if it sticks because you are desperate vs a long term plan that you are presenting it as.     Dungy also moved Saturday to guard for a playoff game vs the Broncos in 03 does that mean the Colts had thoughts about moving Saturday to guard or was it a one game thing?   It’s also moot now as that coach and oline coach are no longer here and Shane has made it clear since he got here he has no plans of moving Smith to right guard.
    • The argument was that he was never discussed as moving to right guard, that it was only a thing from fans. Well he was in fact moved to right guard by the Reich so it was clearly a thought process that had been discussed by more than just fans as it happened. I then stated that I don't want, nor advocated for him to be moved to RG.   I can try and break this down more if you'd like, but you're trying to argue against me like I am stating an opinion when I am stating a fact instead.
