    2021 Cap Space

    If we want to compete and I could chose I'd rather have HT than 12.5m more in cap space. But after Reiss' column a week ago it seems like retirement might actually be the odds on favorite.

    2021 Cap Space

    I think this all depends on how much of a jump Dugger makes until the next season and in how many packages he will be included. I expect him to become a very versatile player that can line up almost anywhere and enable us to be more multiple on defense. It would also take away an obvious target...

    Patricia: Return of the Rocket Scientist

    Still have not learned the difference between context and excuses I guess. Let me use your impeccable logic. Brady fumbled the ball against the Eagles and therefore lost the SB. The defense giving up 41 ? Just excuses.

    2021 Cap Space

    You should think of Dugger more of a LB/S hybrid which will give us the option to match up using big nickel packages and less as #3 safety.

    Patricia: Return of the Rocket Scientist

    bUt HaVe YoU cHeCkEd ThE tImE oF pOsSeSsIoN ? Not sure what makes people like that look like bigger bozos. The mentality that winning is not enough, or the fact that they think the overall defensive philosophy was not put in place by BB. Patricia was DC for over 6 years.. if he was deemed not...

    Why the hell did we not try harder to keep TB12?

    The point is that Brady has been lucky except for one hit in 2008 to not have a OT falling into his knee or a pass rusher being blocked at an awkward angle into his legs. None of his fitness regimen would have prevented a catastrophic injury and could have been career ending or at least...

    Patricia: Return of the Rocket Scientist

    For some reason people just use the performances in the 2017 and 2018 SBs as proxies for how good the defenses were through the entire year which is just dumb. The 2017 defense was a lot better than their last game indicates and the 2018 defense had more issues than the Rams were able to...

    Patricia: Return of the Rocket Scientist

    This nepotism argument is literally one of the most absolutely ******ed things people keep posting here. Steve was not handed out any major staff position but worked his way up the same way as Flores, Patricia, McDaniels and everyone else: he worked for four years as an assistant. He worked his...

    Patricia: Return of the Rocket Scientist

    Just like Boyer wasn't fired after the disasters that were the early 2010s DBs. Or Flores in 2017 when he was in charge of the abomination that was our LB play that year (after losing HT). Or just maybe it was because after losing key players in FA and Hightower opting out the group just had...

    I think its more likely he goes to Miami. His mother who fortunately survived the accident that killed his father lives there. With Flores there I think that is the most likely scenario if he wants to be closer to his family like Reiss indicated. But of course if the Bucs throw significantly...

    Patricia: Return of the Rocket Scientist

    They dominated opponents through the season and won a SB in which the offense turned the ball over twice. I don't know what you mean by underwhelming. You are aware that the only meaningful defensive stat is the amount of points given up relative to those scored, right ?

    Why the BB vs Brady argument is unfair

    I mean he went to a stacked team that is oozing with talent because they have been picking more often in the top 10 than not. I don't think there is anyone who thinks rationally that can actually refute that. Of course because of garbage coaching and gameplanning he did less with more than he...

    Patricia: Return of the Rocket Scientist

    No idea what team you watched but 2014, 2015 and 2016 were pretty strong years. Even 2017 wasn't bad -- especially given the loss of HT midseason -- but all everyone remembers is the SB. He clearly was able to translate BBs vision to the field otherwise he wouldn't have stayed DC for so long.

    Patricia: Return of the Rocket Scientist

    Good news. More continuity after we have lost a ****ton of supporting staff in the last 3-4 years. So far it has been a fine offseason in terms of staff adjustments.

    Why the hell did we not try harder to keep TB12?

    Again I dont understand why you are implying it was a bad coaching decision. It is not like this was the first snap of football Vollmer played in a while. There are about two weeks (1.5 weeks really) of practice leading up to the SB. And Brady could have switched to the run play or just thrown...

    Why the hell did we not try harder to keep TB12?

    It is quite amazing how people try to repaint the early Brady years -- where he was nowhere even close to an elite player -- to do more myth building. His biggest plus in those first couple years was that he executed a gameplan pretty well and didn't turn the ball over like Bledsoe. It took a...

    Why the hell did we not try harder to keep TB12?

    Have you read the post I was replying to ? The poster was implying that it was a coaching mistake because "why was Brady taking a five step drop if it led him into his own endzone". So I used exactly the his own words tongue-in-cheek asking why didn't Brady audible to a run if a five step drop...

    Why the hell did we not try harder to keep TB12?

    It was grounding not holding. He had the choice between a five step drop and a run play. He chose to go ahead with the pass based on presnap information. Notably he also didn't throw it away earlier. Newton got roasted up and down for less egregious things that led to a sack...

    Why the hell did we not try harder to keep TB12?

    Beats me why a QB who is allegedly the greatest of all time didn't switch to the run play instead. Why is it that when bad things happen Brady rarely seems to have any agency in it but when good things happen its because he carried everyone ?

    Why the hell did we not try harder to keep TB12?

    I honestly think that many of the posters that don't understand why it was impossible to keep Brady and built around him at the same time really don't understand the price of sustained success and its cumulative effect on cap space and access to highly talented cheap players through the draft...
