    Stumbled on this tonight. Well worth a read for those with the capacity to grasp it... Explains how the OC position really works (not to mention this offense) and relates to in game performance...including examples tied to this season.

    Another absolute gem by All World TE :youtheman:

    WARNING: totally debunks the OC sucks and playcalling is the root of all failure arguments. :scream:

    That was a really interesting post, and puts into words what I've thought many times when I hear people call out the playcaller.

    I think it's easy to react with "bad call!" after a bad play when you're watching a team as offensively gifted as the Patriots, because you don't want to conclude that the players just didn't execute (or the defense made a good play), but that's often exactly what happened.

    There is a reason football is the ultimate team sport. Blaming one person for a failed play is never going to get you closer to understanding the game.

    I take issue with his lengthy battle with semantics re: the word "NEVER"... but well said nonetheless.

    Can't happen because the sports radio hosts would be exposed for the ignorant controversy pandering fans that they are.

    Could be any one of a cadre of knuckleheads permeating this place lately whom I warned not to read a thread that was beyond their kneejerk comprehension...;)

    Really well done piece, and exemplifies the adage that there alway is more and it is never as simple as it seems to be....

    The reality is that BOB has done an outstanding job for the NEP.. not sure that will translate into success at Penn State, but this offense has evolved under the very capable leadership provided by this brain trust..

    But the folks on the radio have thier own ratings driven agenda, and for many this is the main source of information on this juggernaut.

    Who hates the toss? I've been calling for this ever since Maroney was here. I thought it would give him less indecision and dancing and our O-line is really athletic to do this.

    Also, since we're doing 60/40 pass-run, it's quite good we're getting 4.0 yards/att ranked tied 21 with jags and others. Green bay is 26, Jets are 29 and Giants dead last with 3.5 yards/att, the last 2 teams "known" for running it more than passing. In fact, the Patriots have 438 run attempts and the Giants, 411.

    AWTE's game breakdown threads are the best breakdowns I've ever read anywhere- Unoriginal, Pats1, and BOR would sometimes do that around here but that stopped and I think that's just too bad. It was pure football without the nitpicking.

    Whither BOR and these guys? Anyone know?
    ANYTHING is better than the weekly "Ocho's Week to Shine!!!" and numerous fantasy stats focused threads we get now.

    Less fantasy stats and more analysis threads to inform those of us who aren't HS coaches.

    I don't really go to PP much since the rules changed (I'll go over every couple of months to see if things are back to normal, but they still haven't returned to where it was), but I did a check on BOR recently, because I'd missed his posting. As of when I checked, he hadn't posted at either board in months.

    For the noobs, Unoriginal, Pats1, BOR and AWTE are absolute treasures to read. Look them up in the archives, both here and over at Patriots Planet (if you have an account there).

    Thanks. Miss BOR, but aside from AWTE who gets referenced here I much prefer this site with all its human frailties.

    A lightly moderated board got more heavily moderated, punishments were added for things that hadn't been punished before, and The board itself was somewhat redesigned. A lot of changes were made all around. It resulted in some number of regulars leaving (some have since returned) and a new board being formed.

    If you don't mind, I'll leave it at that.
