    NFL 2018-2019 Season Discussion

    I agree. His stats and results over his past three seasons as a starter with SF don’t justify his salary expectations (something most people don’t consider when comparing him to other shitty QBs in the league) 😀 Why pay Kaep $13M a season to go 3-13?

    To be clear, the reason the Patriots have dominated the NFL for the past 18 years is not because their division sucks. It is well documented that even as of a couple of years ago, the Patriots have almost an identical winning % vs. non AFC East teams as they do against the AFC East. They have also won the AFC 8 times and won 5 Super Bowls, which has nothing to do with the division they are in. I don't even know how to respond to absurd claims like this anymore. I dropped this mentality many years ago. Breaking news for everyone regarding their opinions on Tom Brady's decline. YOU WERE ALL WRONG! Hell, I was wrong. Tom Brady has defied everyone. Max Kellerman stated he would fall off a cliff in 2016 or early 2017. And this wasn't even a "hot take" as many others predicted this a year or two prior. Shit, I remember people making this claim during the 2014 season. Well, It's 2018 and he is still one of the top QBs in the league. Let's just face facts. Tom Brady has played at a high level longer than anyone expected, with the exception of Tom himself. Sure, people can claim year after year that this will be the year he drops off (and yes, it is bound to happen eventually), but the fact that everyone has already made this claim every year for the past 2-4 years makes everyone already wrong. Hot take: Patrick Mahomes will decline in the next 1-25 years. Now that we can agree on! The Pats D is awful. Imagine if they had a good one?!

    Week 1 Pick 'ems 2018-2019

    I’m going to sit this season out. Crazy busy... I’ve had to put the NFL on the back burner. Good luck to all. Go Pats!

    Number Association Game

    The fact that I didn't think of Favre or Vinatieri for #4 further proves that I don't pay enough attention to jersey numbers. Either that or the fact that #4, in my mind, will forever be associated with the legendary Bobby Orr.

    Number Association Game

    Going through this was interesting as it made me realize I don't pay much attention to player numbers. The first player I thought of was 50 - Singletary. He might be the one player I associate most with a number in NFL history. Then I went 1-99 and these are the other players that popped into my head first and within a short time period.

    The Bucs should surprise everyone this season and run that play with JPP.

    Nice job, Titans! I have a feeling both will perform very well with TEN as they did in NE. Solid pick-ups. Really hate to see them go, but this will keep my “around the league” interest up. Plus it worked out pretty well for the last team who signed two former Pats, RB/DEF (Philly - Blount/Long). Also Danny ‘Best Hands All Time’ Amendola going to MIA Guy turned into a juiced Jerry Rice every playoffs. Hate to see him go as well, but I know he’ll crush it in that Miami sun (On and Off the field)

    I suppose this is partially true to an extent. I don't remember many great plays from players on losing teams in non-Patriots Super Bowls. But in Patriots Super Bowls I do. I'll never forget Julio's catch on the sideline, or the circus catch by Kearse. Or Terrell Owens beasting out during the first Eagles/Pats Super Bowl (the one where the good guys won). Think he had a broken leg, too. Or Jake Delhomme tossing bombs when the Pats beat the Panthers... I could go on. I don't think I'll ever forget those plays. But come to think of it, I still remember quite a few great plays made by players on losing teams. Larry Fitzgerald's 2 TDs to put AZ on top of PIT late in SB XLIII. Devin Hester's KO return to open the SB against the Colts. Don Beebe's hustle play denying Leon Lett of a TD.

    I will say though that no one celebrates a Super Bowl win quite like Philly fans. http://www.12up.com/posts/5972374-female-eagles-fans-get-nsfw-tattoos-on-lips-to-honor-nick-foles http://abc7chicago.com/sports/eagles-fan-appears-to-eat-horse-poop-amid-super-bowl-celebration/3042971/ WTF are they putting in those cheesesteaks?

    Not arguing many of your points, but I don't agree here. Sure most Pats fans and media are giving Belichick sh*t for the defensive inefficiency and not playing Butler (and rightfully so), but for what it's worth, I have not listened to or read a single interview or article that has done so without also giving Philly their credit. I mean, I'll say it again, Pederson and Foles were brilliant. My view on that is already documented in this thread. And there's a huge difference between what happened to Atlanta and Seattle and what happened to New England. Atlanta's and Seattle's mistakes can be viewed as temporary lapses in judgement - or even fluke plays. In both cases, the coaches made decisions to pass the ball late in the game with arguably two of the top 5 QBs in the league. Both teams had recently moved the chains by passing it - Wilson to whoever the hell made that crazy catch down the sideline - and Ryan to Julio and Sanu. ATL/SEA were having success with those types of plays. The chances of making an error in those situations (throwing a pick at the goal line or taking a sack/penalty) were slim. Both teams had their BEST players out there and were playing to WIN the game. What Belichick did was bench arguably one of the best Patriots defenders, who played just under 98% of the regular season snaps and replaced him with a combination of one below average (Rowe) and two other players no one has ever heard of (Bademosi, Richards)... and to this point there has been ZERO explanation for doing so. Not only did Belichick do it because "he's in charge and he'll make a statement whenever he feels like it" (at least that's what we have to assume)... he stuck with it when it clearly wasn't working... didn't change anything. That is not putting your team in a situation to win. Also, the NE vs. ATL/SEA games were back and forth where sometimes the offense made a play and sometimes the defense made a play. The NE/PHI game was offense, offense, offense and more offense. The adjustment NEEDED to be made on the defensive side of the ball. I dunno... I just don't think there's much comparison at all between those games. Last point... at least most Pats fans are willing to admit that Philly outplayed them and executed on a perfect gameplan. Because they did. And that's a hell of a lot more than people say about the Patriots when they win. 2001 - refs/tuck rule/taped Rams walkthrough... 2003 - cheated... 2004 - spygate... 2014 - deflategate... 2016 - cheated/refs. I think if Pats fans are bitching about Belichick (and we have every right to) it's still better than what every other fan base has done when the Pats win.
