What does that mean (re: McNabb)? 

 

My brother attended Syracuse when McNabb was there. He said McNabb was a very nice guy. He also had good things to say about Keith Bullock. 

Basically Philly fans saying their QB was the best when he hadn't ever won anything. Them jumping the gun always about how great their teams/players are when they usually win nothing.

Most fans are cool I will say. I've had great times at several stadiums watching our Colts (car and det were cool folks).

 

Hated buffalo and ne fans when I've been there.

 

Everywhere I have been fans have been nice except some Cowboys fans.

NE during those early Manning Colts teams was brutal. Will never forget how they were towards my wife and I when we attended.

I forgot about them. In person, they don't seem too bad. But on this site, most liked to troll Colts fans.

I won't ever forget how terrible they were up there in ne and I'm a native nyc guy so comments don't ever bother me. Buffalo I was shocked at how nasty they were.

Bengals kind of trashed talked all week. KC says hold my beer.

Yep. Shouldn't have done it. I had a feeling this could be a trap game and it's about to be 10-0. 

 

I think the media overplayed Mahomes being hurt. That or he's on a hell of a lot of drugs right now.

Bengals players, and their fans, & even Cincy’s mayor talked a whole lotta shot (as if they’ve dog walked the Chiefs every game).  Now KC & their fans are extra motivated.  Could be a long day for the Bengals. 

Yeah they should have stayed humble.

    • Ask Philip Rivers to give him advice on parenthood, AR should stick around in the NFL for a while then. 😉
    • Yes, I think so too.
    • It's very telling that nobody actually came out and said that Stroud's published test score was inaccurate. Yes there was pushback about the scores, but they all were very general and non-specific. "I've seen published scores that aren't correct", "Those scores miss a lot of context", etc.    And especially when Stroud himself was asked about those scores. Do you remember what his answer was? He didn't dispute any of it. He just said he's not a test-taker, he's a football player.    I think several big time reporters/analysts reported it. I think I first heard it from Zierlein. But can't find the original. Here's Pelissero reporting on it too: https://www.nfl.com/news/2023-nfl-draft-pro-execs-scouts-coaches-rank-and-evaluate-the-qb-class           There have been some suggestions that the Panthers took Bryce Young over Stroud partially because of the S2 test, because they valued it highly.    Yeah, I don't remember if it was reported as players refusing it or their agents not allowing them to take it, but this is what one of the podcasts I listen to reported. Not 100% sure which one it is because I consume a lot of those draft podcasts.    They probably can... not sure if the players would do it. But if the teams knew it in advance they might have better idea of whether development in certain areas is even possible. 
    • I don't think I agree that it's revisionist. Last year, some scores leaked, and then Stroud's scores got aggregated and the story was sensationalized. But all along, there was pushback about the scores -- were they accurate, was there missing context, was there an incomplete leak designed to make people discount Stroud, was someone trying to gain leverage for a trade, etc. There was skepticism from reputable people, and even though it was noted that many teams value the S2 test, I don't think anyone ever expected or predicted that Stroud's draft stock was significantly affected by whatever his score was.    I don't remember reading that he took the test multiple times. That's an interesting variable, if it's true.   There can be value in the test, but like with any other piece of information, how do you apply what's learned to your evaluation process? Like you said, there's a lot of work to figure out how this testing correlates to a player's ability to perform in the NFL, same as with any other datapoint. I don't know if it should be dismissed, but I don't think any team is letting S2 scores rule over their scouting process. Not even for QBs.    I haven't heard that any QBs are refusing to take the test, but I have read that agents are recommending that they don't. I think that's alarmist; Stroud went #2, which is basically what most people expected. Is it established that the scores hurt him? I'd say they did not. But I might not want a player I represent to be subjected to the media/Internet scrutiny, especially since it's clear that players pay attention to what's being said about them, and sometimes react to it.   To the bolded, if a team wants to use S2 results for planning, why can't they draft their QB, and then ask him to take the test? Now there's no pressure, he can test under controlled circumstances, and the team can use the data to help develop their player. 
    • The most important stat is late 20's in defense. Then the eternal test. We can get a sack that puts them in long situations and they quickly pick apart our poor coverage.
