  1. 7 targets. 1 catch, for 5 yards. Maclin: 9 targets, 6 catches for 87 yards and 2 TDs. It's still early, but Perriman has absolutely dropped more passes than he's caught. That's not an exaggeration. It's a fact. Passes that hit him right in the hands that he dropped. (And while those drops may or may not show up in some statistical "drop" count, look at the film. He dropped them.) And that's why he not only isn't remotely a #1 or #2 receiver, he isn't really an NFL receiver at all. Since the definition of a "receiver" is, you know, to CATCH THE BALL. This guy would be considered a bust even if he'd only been an UDFA. But as a first pick? LOL. Not even on ANY level of reality. QBs need to know that when they throw the ball to a receiver he's going to catch the ball. It's the fundamental prerequisite to developing trust. Perriman does not belong on the field. But since he was a #1 draft pick, they'll stick with him, to the detriment of the team. And while it's still a little early for those stats to have real validity because the sample size is too small, it's 100% consistent with what the scouts said about Perriman before he was (unfortunately) drafted by the Ravens -- that he drops way too many easy passes right in his hands, but does make some spectacular circus catches. The Ravens offense simply cannot afford to keep running Perriman out there. This offense is thin, and it needs everyone to contribute. Perriman does not fit the bill. He is Yamon Figurs, v.2, only Figurs wasn't a 1st round bust. And while I absolutely abhor injury smack, the sad reality is that Perriman was actually more helpful to the team when he was on IR than now when he's on the field. He is a detriment. He kills drives. He keeps the team from being able to get into FG range. He is a negative.
  2. And it's a wrap! (And my nephew, who lives in Houston, had something going with some store there that if the Astros won the WS he'd get his $5,000.00 bed for free. Looks like he got his $5,000.00 bed for free!)
  3. If the Astros can't hold a 4 run lead heading into the 9th they don't deserve to win.
  4. The O's are like a Double-A farm club compared to the really good teams.
  5. Unless the Dodgers manage to come up with a.... SEASON. SAVING. RALLY!!
  6. I'd give it to Springer. Although it really was a team win. Every time it seemed as if they'd fold they stormed back. All I kept thinking was how much better they'd have been with Brach. And how wild it was that Verlander ended up on a World Series team after having been traded in the 11th hour.
  7. Are my eyes deceiving me, or are the Dodger batters engaging in gamesmanship with all the timeouts they keep calling at the plate?
  8. Wow. I can't believe the mods didn't ban you. So I'll ban myself because any board that allows a total P.O.S. like you to keep on posting isn't worth my time. And one last exposed lie of yours before I leave: You say you joined the board to give me a "piece of your mind". You were a member of this board from 2003. I only joined in 2009. So once again, you're nothing but a P.O.S. liar. Enjoy. The board is so lucky to have you.
  9. Then I must have clearly missed whatever point he was trying to make. To me, I don't need to compare any drop stats with any other NFL receiver. Watching Perriman -- if it's not 100% clear that he's a bust, then all the stats in the world won't help. And aren't really needed to begin with. Just my 2 cents.
  10. For some it sure is.
  11. Whatever happened to the penalty flag thrown on Jensen? It was definitely thrown. He was definitely in store for a retaliation penalty. Yet it never got enforced or even mentioned. How is that possible?
  12. We'll agree to disagree.
  13. LOL. My sister, who lives in Houston, bailed on the game at 10:00 PM. She didn't think it was interesting. LOL. (And who on the planet could possibly be happier than Justin Verlander?!!)
  14. I bet Houston wishes they at least had Brach.
  15. Maybe you need to go back and re-read Mr. Deltoid's perfect analysis of what happened when Kubiak came in with his crew, parked Castillo (who had had a riot on his hands the previous year) and see what Mr. D had to say. And your meager attempt to try to minimize what Kubiak did what a journeyman RB, which is what he's been doing for over a decade, is kind of silly, really. And no one has run a pure WCO in years. Kubiak's basic formula is, without a doubt, a run-to-set-up-the-pass scheme. And man...if you don't know that, we really have nothing to talk about. You know your numbers, but that's about it man.
  16. Hmmmmm...kind of like the Ravens 20 year bankruptcy on offense. Interesting. You see things with the O's that you don't see with the Ravens. Interesting indeed.
  17. I couldn't disagree more. As I've already stated, what Kubiak DID was to provide the proper balance, along with the perfect "run to set up the pass" type of offense. That's the exact opposite of Cameron's "Cam Coryell" type dinosaur offense. Additionally, Kubiak straightened out the single-most important part of an offense -- the offensive line. With that fixed, he was able to do what he's always done -- take a journeyman like Forsett and turn him into a 1,000 yard rusher, which opened up the D's and opened up the passing game. That's what a run to set up the pass offense does. And Kubiak did it. To say he didn't do anything more than just let Joe throw long is laughable, really.
  18. Who couldn't tell that Morrow was out of gas before that last blast? It was like watching Buck managing. And speaking of Buck...the Astros have 11 runs on 10 hits. Man, I hope Buck is in bed and not watching this.
  19. And it's a clean sweep -- 4 for 4. (Proving, unequivocally, that there is no rhyme or reason to the prediction madness.)
  20. OK. Thanks. To me, his track record the past five years is sub .500, and the most recent 5 year stretch is more important to me than the previous 5 year stretch because it's in that most recent stretch that Harbaugh has re-made the team more according to the kind of players he prefers. And that most recent track record of sub .500 is just not good enough for me. But that's what makes discussing these topics so interesting -- the different points of view.
  21. Not really. Those stats are meaningless, IMO. Their definition of "drop" has never made any sense to me when I've watched the games. Do you think Perriman has only had 4 drops the entire season? He's had drops in every game in which he's played, sometimes more than one. But they don't get reflected in those "stats".
  22. OK. Then what is your point? That some questionable "drops" stat is somehow more important than what everyone is seeing on the field? Or that because there's some false correlation between Perrriman's "drop stats" and OBJ's "drop stats" that that in any means there's some correlation between Perriman and OBJ? You've totally lost me.
  23. Well...respectfully...do you not see stale results on the field? Isn't that enough? Why would it be more important to have inside info as opposed to what you're seeing on the field, and what you've been seeing every year for the past five years except when Gary Kubiak was here? That's what I'm not understanding. Don't you trust what you're eyes are telling you? Or are your eyes telling you something else? Peace.
  24. Well, 3 out of 4 so far. 1 more to go for a slam dunk 100% week!
  25. Well, if/when you figure it out, get back to me. Otherwise, this is going nowhere.
