    Eli and Peyton Manning

    Peyton spent his career making pundits look stupid because they always predicted him to win and he often didn't. So when he did win, they said, "See!? We told you he was great and we were right!" Brady spent his career making pundits look stupid because they always predicted he wasn't good...

    Idle thoughts - the "we finally won one" edition

    Agreed, and I think those kinds of reactions will come with more reps. Right now he's having to do a lot of processing pre-snap, then shift to reactionary processing post-snap, and he's a half step behind on some of it. As he sees things more often, and starts to feel more than think, those...

    PostGame Thread Official Post Game Thread- Pats beat the Jets

    Felt like we started seeing him in the 4th quarter. I think he's actually respectable as a corner, at least to the degree that he's a better "emergency" option than having to use someone like Edelman. I like that they got him some snaps there in garbage time (and nothing really changed). It...

    OT: Have the Chiefs lost their swag?

    They are what the NFL wants: A team that is never out of a game because they can score three touchdowns in two and half minutes. But also a team that has never truly WON a game until the final buzzer for the same reason. If the NFL could make every team in the league the Chiefs, they would...

    PostGame Thread Official Post Game Thread- Pats beat the Jets

    With Bentley I think it's important to remember what kind of LB (at his best) he is supposed to be. He's not a coverage linebacker, he's a thumper and a north-south kind of guy. Citing tackles that he misses when he's chasing down a RB in the open field is a bit disingenuous. His limits are...

    PostGame Thread Official Post Game Thread- Pats beat the Jets

    I also recognize that it often makes for boring forum discussions if everything boils down to, "Who knows, let's see?" so I get it. But I personally felt encouraged by more things on Sunday than I felt discouraged by things.

    PostGame Thread Official Post Game Thread- Pats beat the Jets

    So, I think we're suffering from a little bit of mental lag here this season. For the most part, in 20 years with Tom Brady, we never had to ask the question, "How can we win the Super Bowl?" It was always, "Where are the flaws that could get in the way of us winning a Super Bowl?" And so...

    OLine has not impressed the last 2 games. Time for a new lineup?

    Fair point, but he was also a rookie and I think would have been making his first career start in the Super Bowl, so I don't read into that too too much. I don't know the exact circumstances around the guys that DID play though, so they could have been equally inexperienced.

    OLine has not impressed the last 2 games. Time for a new lineup?

    For one week, only to go back to the original lineup in week 3? No. If Brown were out for multiple weeks it would make more sense, but having practiced on Friday leads me to believe he'll be back for the Saints. I'm curious why you think Durant is "bad". Right now he's an unknown.

    Game Day Thread Official Pregame Thread- Pats @ Jets

    More Uche, and perhaps a game day activation for Perkins?

    Game Day Thread Official Pregame Thread- Pats @ Jets

    Two things stand out to me in these tweets: 1) Gilmore is still very active in meetings with this team, which can only be a good thing for that whole situation. 2) You can safely say now that Mac Jones has a history of beating Cam Newton.

    Have we overrated the Patriots defense more specifically the front 7?

    One game is too small a sample size, Patriots defenses usually start slow/simple and get better as the season goes on (so long as they have relatively good health), they faced a team that knew them inside and out, and they finished the game giving up the 12th fewest points and 5th fewest yards...

    Week 2 NFL news

    Frankly, I like my idea better (surprising no one, I suppose), because it doesn't leave things up to a grey area, where someone has to withhold opinions for fear of having a "bad reputation".

    Week 2 NFL news

    I know this is off topic for this thread, but I feel like there should be an option to ignore a user without ignoring threads they create. I don't personally put people on ignore (unless they are quite obviously a new account made to troll, AND they're not very entertaining when they do it)...

    Idle thoughts - the what could have been edition

    Agreed on everything, except for point 5. I think if they expect Brown back soon, they're not going to move Onwenu to RT for one week, then back to LG in week 3. I think as long as they suspect Brown will be back for the Saints game, they'll plug in the best RT reserve they think they've got...

    (Situation to Monitor) Saints COVID outbreak; potentially could have a bye week before playing the Pats

    I don't think that's how it's supposed to work. From what I understand, if it's deemed that an outbreak occurs involving unvaccinated players, that removes enough players that (even with PS elevations) they don't have enough players to field a gameday roster, AND the NFL can't make reasonable...

    Mac Jones...PFF Rookie of the Week

    Why stop THERE? Tom will leave GISELLE and become Mac's side-piece!

    Idle thoughts - the what could have been edition

    I think that's certainly possible, but week 1 is so hard to read. These two teams could go in opposite directions from here, it's just too wild in the beginning with every team trying to figure out who they are with a lot of new faces.
