  1. 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.
  2. 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 Sam supporter.. up til mid 2019 season. Some guys just have it. My eye test tells me he does not. Like I said when we started this exchange.. the things that Sam CAN control.. he doesnt do well. I wish him the best but I root for the name on the front of the jersey - not the back.
  3. Yeah but go ahead anyway... and we need her name... *goes and gets popcorn
  4. Your 2001 New England Patriots - wow.. look at those household names...
  5. Who was she? you cant just throw that out here and walk away... you cant
  6. 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.
  7. 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 and a consistent running game.. you're not a franchise QB.
  8. 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 don't have the WR's because no one lifted up Sam.. but on the other hand... we dont have a QB because Sam didnt lift anyone. Just my opinion.
  9. 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 Justin Jefferson or Claypool would be great here.. like they would lift Sam? Odds are, Sam would overthrow them or throw into coverage with them here... and their stats would suffer. Enough with the excuses for this guy. Time to move on.
  10. Darnold is awful. Period. Enough already.. half you guys act like he is your best friend. He is near or at the bottom everywhere. Let's examine that long list of FRANCHISE quarterbacks that have led their team to an 0-13 record in YEAR 3! Give me a break. Geno showed more and you guys crucified him. Move on and lets get Trevor
  11. on what planet do you think Sam is a 1 or 2?????? A 4 would be good right now.
  12. Is this from PFF? You have to pay for this? Just curious
  13. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh you dont think like I do.. you are a disgrace. Get a life. FFS a meaningless win to have a shot at a potential stud or 2.. yeah... no question.. sign me up.
  14. Jets fans all over are so damn delusional.. FRANCHISE QBs make others good/great. They dont need much around them to start turning the team into a winner. If you need a good O-Line.. Good WRs.. a good TE.. and possibly a running game to look good.. guess what? You're not a franchise QB. I would think the list is very short of who is a franchise QB in year 3 that was 0-7! Darnold is not it. Stop it already. Move on.
  15. I am pretty sure I am amongst the multitude of fans that gets nervous when they are hanging around in a game. I am actually praying for a loss
  16. The whole idea behind a franchise QB is to make the team great. Period. See Mahomes and Brady and Manning and any other... if you need a pretty good team around them for them to flourish then guess what? He is not the franchise QB. Other than Moss who did Brady ever have? When you start naming supposed good receivers.. were they good before Brady.. or did Brady make them great?? You are either a lion or a sheep.. the sheep needs others to make them better.. the lion makes everyone better. Look at Jamal Adams.. lion.. he made the D better.. he didnt have to rely on every single player on D to be a star. If Darnold needs that much around him.. guess what??? you know the answer. Side bar: Andrew Luck was known for one thing.. getting pummeled because he had no offensive line... yet somehow he managed to become a franchise QB. Darnold is not it. Sorry.
  17. BB is really not anything to be afraid of.. it was ALWAYS Brady and a solid team.. period. The Pats go as Brady goes... hes getting older and thus the faltering offense. BB was a way below average head coach before him.
