    rather not say
  1. Mikemor1 what do you think about the rb Guice in rd 1? He seems like a Jamal Lewis clone in the sense that he's speed/power and built like a tank. Very hard to bring down and is made to overwhelm defenses and run them into the ground in the 4th quarter: http://www.profootballweekly.com/2018/04/03/nfl-draft-profile-no-24-lsu-rb-derrius-guice/a8mcmbp/
  2. Harbaugh though doesnt have a great feel for the flow of the game imo. I can't prove this statistically except maybe pointing to his mediocre record the last 5 years. Its just something I see - he'll go for it when he shouldn't and vice versa. Some coaches have a great instinct about when to press the gas and when to play field position. After watching Pederson throughout the playoffs I can say he has it.
  3. Nice/informative post- i had alien's perspective before but you changed my mind.
  4. Decosta's reign as GM is about to begin. I'm not sure what the main differences are between the two. anybody know? I guess we'll soon find out for better or worse..
  5. Saw this on Twitter had to post it here : https://mobile.twitter.com/jonmckinney1/status/958105355422240768/photo/1
  6. If minkah or roquan fall than either one should be the pick. Also I'm also not sold on Ridley - being a super star - just not enough tape on him. But his floor is a good #2 wr and I think he'd be worth the risk in the case he does emerge into a top flight WR. He definitely can separate from the DB and can catch. If it takes using #16 to get a good/solid wr than so be it.
  7. But maybe coughlin has belichicks number . Would be awesome to see him beat the pats with bortles.
  8. No matter what Brady and co. Say publicly it feels like there's some truth to this situation. Belichick is great at evaluating talent- he would've been very hard pressed to trade Garrapalo away imo. He knows how good that guy is. The only pressure hard enough would come from the owner.
  9. Agree. Its tough to find a franchise qb. More reason they should start investing/drafting them this year on out and hope one hits paydirt!
  10. Never looked at it this way but seems fitting. We always seem willing to scrap up old vets to patch holes rather than spending the investment / resources in fixing the problem and making it a stregnth.
  11. I agree mostly except where you say "I don't think it is any one unit or player that needs to be a little better". Joe directly impacts the game moreso than any other player so - although yes it's a team game- Joe touches the ball more than anyone else (except the center) and thus has a more direct impact on the end result. So- him playing better means that much more than Maclin, or Weddle, or Collins or Perriman playing better because the plays and the ball are in his hands and he can affect the play more than anyone. If he plays better, the chances of us winning goes up much moreso than any other player or unit. If weddle has the game of his life- we could still lose by 2 tds. If joe has the game of his life we win. I don't think there's a silver bullet either- and at the same time it's simple- get better players! having said all this- the team is closer to Joe than any of us- know his flaws and strengths more than any of us. The fact they haven't addressed getting him what he needs is mind boggling.
  12. I just think the Titans have the better QB, better RBs, better TE, better WRs. Every piece of their Offense is better, except maybe their O-line, and that's probably even or better. Also going down 21-3, without needing turnovers by their D to really help them come back. I don't see the Ravens capability to do that. The Titans actually had more Turnovers than the Cheifs! They will get blasted by NE no doubt- but so would any other team imo except maybe Pitt.
  13. I like your analysis resto- but I just don't buy this as the reason the team fails to make the playoffs last couple years. Sure the Defense should've held. But at same time, if Joe was consistent or played better (he is the absolute most important player who determines the fate of the team) the Defense probably wouldn't need to bear the responsibility to seal these game. Even if all he did was protect the football slightly better over the course of the season- we win more games in both seasons and don't need to rely on last minute defensive stands in win or die games to make the playoffs. He's the QB. He's inconsistent and average- and so the team is inconsistent and average imo.
  14. Imo- Titans are clearly better than the ravens.
  15. Mariota makes me dream of an athletic playmaking QB. Did you guys see the block he threw to spring Henry on the game sealing run? That guy is a baller.
