  1. Let not forget the MOCK drafts.. holy crap! And yes it is our society. I can always tell who I will take seriously by the players they want. Most of the younger generation has no idea how to build a team and goes after the guy in Madden who have a high rating. Period. Or was once a household name. Dear lord.
  2. Isnt it April 29th? The draft? 29 + 7 (in march).. 36 days. Or is my math off?
  3. I cannot agree with this more. I have said this forever. QB is THE most important position on a TEAM sport. FQBs MAKE the entire roster better. I've had arguements on here about, aside from Moss, who has Brady thrown to? and if you throw out some of those names and say "he was pretty good".. that was because of Brady. Put Brady on the Jets now and Mims looks like a WR1. No doubt. But hey Darnold.. "we can win with him".. ugh.. no he is not making anyone better.. Watson will but I would only invest for the right price... which isnt too far off what they are asking.
  4. I think what bothers me most about the coach search is the way the NFL sets the rules. Like I am on board with Saleh.. I was a little disappointed when he left without a contract.. then I forgot about Dabol. I just started realizing how messed up that is that you cant choose between 2 guys because only 1 is available to interview. In the meantime, some other team can jump the gun and take Saleh off the board. Then you interview Dabol and realize that Saleh was better.. but now he is gone. Dont like it.
  5. 1999 Titans great WRs... no? Almost all superbowl teams have a very good QB.. if not Franchise. They make those around better. You cannot say that a true FQB doesnt make everyone around them better. QB is THE most important position.. i hope we can agree on that. The fact that Sam needs others around him to make him better is the problem. He should be the guy we build around. Otherwise, you end up with Mark Sanchez.. great team around him with nothing to show at QB.
  6. But you just said my point. Tom Brady became a FQB.. he could take a team of nobodies and make them a household name. It didnt matter who you put with him.. they were going to get the ball. He made them better. He lifted their play. BTW, before Tom Brady came on the scene the highest yardage total for Troy Brown was 607 - and that was in about 6 years of playing. So not so good. But you know his name now.. why? Because a compentant QB delivered him the ball. Everyone benefits from it. The line looks better.. the running game opens up... defense is off the field more. I was a huge
  7. Yeah but go ahead anyway... and we need her name... *goes and gets popcorn
  8. Your 2001 New England Patriots - wow.. look at those household names...
  9. Who was she? you cant just throw that out here and walk away... you cant
  10. Exactly brother.. that was my point. When Brady was starting out he had Troy Brown and David Patton. The only reason they seemed legit was because of Brady. He made them.. same with Brisby. It's insane to me that people can think Sam is gonna be good if he only has A line 3 Really good WRs 1 Really good TE Good Running game If you need that.. you are not a FQB. Period.
  11. You are missing the point. How good was that Saints offense before Brees? Wasnt. He comes in, a frachise qb in the making, and elevates it. Now everything around him is perfect. Franchise players elevate those around him.. Sam clearly doesnt elevate anyone. In a super lost season, like we just had, I find it hilarious that old man Flacco started making Perriman look really good. Flacco was elevating his play.. and Flacco is done. But you get that young FQB in place.. thats what he is supposed to do. I will go to my grave saying this.. if you need a good line, good WRs, a good TE
  12. And Sam is a part of that! If he was "franchise" he would lift up the other receivers.. make his line look better with faster reads.. receivers would have better stats.. running game more room. So then the knee jerk reaction is no one is open. Well franchise qbs still get that ball in there.. hit the timing perfect. Is it Michael Thomas or Drew Brees? who makes who better? it could be both.. and thus they look amazing. It could be one.. in my example we know Brees already delivers as a QB.. so maybe Thomas is just feeding off of him. It could also be they both suck - as is our case. We do
  13. At some point we have to stop making excuses for the player and realize the things that Sam can control..he was pitiful at. Wrong reads, triple coverage throws..holding on to the ball too long. Players drafted that high shouldnt need the "perfect" team around him.. you are supposed to be a building block for all coming after. Funny how we dont have this conversation about Becton. Damn.. if only the other 4 guys on the line were better.. he would be great. Yeah no, thats why our line improved from 2019.. he held his own.. and everyone else benefitted. Sam cannot say that. Do you think J
