  1. Yep, great job. But, here is the thing, JD should already know to step it up as this is the year that the team needs to compete. And, if JD didn't know he needs to stop it up, I am pretty sure that being told to step it up won't be helpful. JD either has a plan that he is going to execute on, or he doesn't.

  2. I think they should make a change to the rules, just not the OT rules. They should adjust the passing rules to make it less difficult for a defense to play against a strong offense - or not call the tick-tacky stuff; or call of the offensive PI more often.

    Either way, some of this can be blamed on the coaching staffs. With no time left in the game, why is Bowles blitzing? Why even use 4 man rush - let the QB sit back there as time was running out and had to throw quickly. Play cover 3 and keep everything in front of them.

    For the Bills, why not squib kick it? It would take up some time. Instead they get the ball on the 25.

    Either way, overtime wouldn't have been needed. What if we give each team a drive and then they both score TDs and then the first team (which wins a coin flip) would win with a FG. The teams have 60 minutes to win the game, if you give up a big drive at the end of the game with just tens of seconds without TOs, you deserve to loose, IMO.

    Bowles and that whole era of "blitz heavy defense" is over.

    You need to generate pressure without blitzing and drop as many back as possible. 

    Or you need shutdown corners...

    Either way, with only 25 seconds you play the clock - 2 or 3 deep - keep everything in front of you.

    Love Brady crying. 

    I am not a fan of his behavior - he normally just asks for the call and gets it, but he was hit in the face with the helmet. But like Rex said, "we are going to hit you and the face" - Rams seemed to be hitting harder...

  5. I don't think it was much of a shot at the Jets as the Cowboys. He is saying, for a time with all of the pieces if you don't win in the post season, it is no different than a team at the bottom of the league - 1 year away from #1 and 2 with just 3 or 4 wins. What I think he is saying is that the expectations for the Jets and the Jags this year was not high, while the expectations for the Dallas was a strong showing in Post season - so, Dallas failed worse than the Jets/Jags.

    Of course, if you don't want to be used as the - no better than - team, win games and go to the playoffs :-)

    They won't refuse because as mentioned, they would like someone else to pay his salary. They could also say refuse to let him interview with a division rival or something which we all wish they had done with Adam Gase. 

    You kidding? They wanted us to waste 2 years on the guy and were thrilled he stayed in the division; they probably laughed their asses off when we hired him.

    Huh? His injury was not season ending. It was a 4-6 recovery period after week 1. He was just too out of shape and unwilling to work hard enough to get back on the field. There were ZERO reports of set backs in his recovery.  


    A setback from the standpoint that his knee didn't heal as fast as hoped. So the term setback, was a setback in expectations on the speed of heeling - that can be extremely frustrating and depressing especially to an young athlete  who wants to have a great career.

    Some article clips below:


    “The knee did not come along as quickly as [the Jets] had hoped, and what happened was, because he wasn’t able to do the kind of things that he needed to do to get into rehab and get back in shape, he put on weight,” Garafolo reported.


    [Saleh] insists that the delayed recovery is not the result of some sort of problem with his surgery or recovery, adds that Becton has done a great job with his rehab and his past issues managing his weight and conditioning have nothing to do with the delayed recovery, and usually mentions that everyone heals differently, especially when you're 6-foot-7 and and 363 pounds, like Becton

    Becton can't get depressed over every sprain or he is doomed to fail. Lineman get hurt and play hurt every year. 

    An injury that ends his season is not a normal sprain. An injury that was caused by an incompetent player rolling on him is likely to upset him. He spent all offseason working hard and trying to stay in shape, you can't blame a kid for getting upset when he gets and injury and then he has to keep waiting on rehab. I remember some pro, can't remember who, who said the hardest part of rehabbing an injury is that it is lonely, frustrating, and quite hard emotionally. He said it took everything he had to not get depressed. But, hey - ....

    Also, while I am sure he is no where near in football shape, he didn't look way overweight. Are the pictures from October, or more. recent?

    It was a terrible choice...

    they were moving the ball with ease on the outside.  Absolutely no need to change that - take one more shot out wide...and then throw it up.

    Actually, they were moving with ease on the outside and then the D finally adjusted and moved most of the D on the outside, leaving the middle of the field open. If he stops 2 seconds earlier, they spike the ball after a nice pick up and they have a shot into the end zone.

    Why would anyone want to live in Utah instead of NY or LA.

    Funny. I am not sure what the difference between Utah and some of the more secluded parts of LA. My guess is that she isn't a city gal - but outside New Orleans, you can find the 'quiet life'; maybe the weather? Also, New Orleans is nothing like NYC; okay during Mardi Gras; maybe it is her family.

    Why couldn't she stay in Utah for an extra month and still stay together? I think it is the 8 months in NY/NJ that is really the problem, or she found out that she doesn't want to be QB wife. Or, maybe she wanted to be a wife, and he wasn't ready?

    So jerry is going to fire mccarthy to hire the guy who called a qb sneak w/ no time outs left?  I dont think so.

    Sounds ridiculous, but it was a gutsy call, and it almost worked. Down that far with the D finally protecting the outside, it was just as likely to work as something else. I think someone, maybe Romo said that Dak should have slid down 5 yards earlier; had he done that and the officials weren't so slow, he would have been able to spike the ball with a really good gain. Throwing in the middle of the field would be same risk except it may take longer. Either way, it was a long shot and it was a imaginative call - clearly the D didn't expect it.

    Well when the HC of the team said he “sucker punched” him what exactly should those media report?

    Of course - I am just commenting about another thread where I am frustrated with the ease the media makes stuff up or gets it wrong - then fans infer based on that to call it fact.

    I probably broke like 5 JN rules with that alone. I was just trying to show 'things we know' we often don't know even when getting them from HC. I was very clumsy ...

    Why does it always come back to Mac Jones? Are people really surprised that a rookie QB with a bunch of no.3 receivers got destroyed by the no.1 defense in the NFL? It was the most predictable outcome ever. Bill Belichick's reputation has been built around strong defenses. Tonight his defense gave up a touchdown on all seven drives. I feel like this is a bigger story than Mac Jones and his predictably bad performance. Would the greatest coach of all time really allow this to happen?

    Does anyone else see the irony of this statement? like another rookie QB everyone is dumping on whose OL is worse and who would feel like he was playing with #1s if he had Mac Jones' #3? LOL

    Anyway, this is a BB without Brady topic; while Bill's D gave the ultimate fail last night - maybe a reasonable QB could have slowed them down by scoring points and not giving up INTs. But yeah, the defensive genius who spent big time in the off season on his D got pretty badly spanked. Even with Brady in his prime I doubt they win that game, but how many years did Brady make up for Bill's soft D? who knows.
