  1. What do these guys have in common? They ain’t going to the SB. No way the Jets are spending $90 million on a WR for three years.
  2. No way you pay a WR that kind of $$. Just not happening. Go to Dallas and lose in the playoffs
  3. I find it hard to feel sorry for a team that played absolutely horrendous defense giving up uncontested passes and allow a team convert 2 plays into 43 yard in under 13 seconds. They didn’t deserve the win.
  4. I’m in the small minority that feel this was not a great football game. Entertaining sure but got borderline ridiculous at the end where a “drive” became farcical and lost any sense of game tension. IMO it was a poorly played and coached defensive game on both sides. Never in my life did I see so many wide open receivers and uncontested catches. Preseason defense was more competitive Both teams defenses and defensive coordinators need to be called out, particularly that 13 second drive. KC with 3 timeouts and Buffalo leaves the middle of the field wide open and WRs/TEs uncontested. Mind boggling I’m sick of these pundits yucking it up - it’s all glam to them, NBA style fawning rather than calling people out for bad football. But then you can’t criticize the defenses because that will cheapen the narrative of Allen and Mahomes “superhuman” performances i feel bad for the fans - not the team
  5. From the Buffalo sports news today: “Mahomes threw the ball 44 times and the Bills didn’t have a single pass defensed. That’s remarkable.” Remarkable is one way to describe it
  6. Everyone here is a Monday morning draft expert who had all the guys that succeeded in the NFL on their draft board ahead of JD picks.
  7. Very woke. Very expensive. Welcome to NYC politics in the mountains of NC. It is beautiful
  8. I apologize- I just thought you said that ZW would never play anywhere near this level so I brought up the wide open receivers - I missed the post where you spelled it out in detail. My bad
  9. I didn’t think the point was about whether a game was epic or not, but I get your point that most times a high scoring game is in general more exciting than a defensive struggle but you could argue that defensive stops multiple times in less than 2 minutes could generate a lot of excitement. I still feel defenses play a huge role and I would argue as important as the offense. Last nights game is a testament to what happens when defenses not only fail but don’t even make contested plays. No great catches just wide open receivers. Almost making routine catches as if in practice. That 13 second drive - KC has 3 timeouts 3 points behind and Buffalo leaves the middle of the field wide open. Mind numbingly awful. The SF Green Bay game was the opposite - the defense bailed out the offenses. a one sided game either way is numbing after a while. The uniqueness or the impact of such drives is lost after not one not two but three td drives and a FG in less than 2 minutes. Those drives had the same WTF reaction from people similar to when Seattle threw a a pass against NE on the goal line in the SB. Epic play but awful Last nights game was an anomaly and simply a poorly played and poorly defensive coached game on both sides. But then again: “it’s grim times. Be the grim reaper” - genius.
  10. That’s it - it was Arena football. Perfect analogy. Not NFL. The drive lost all meaning last night. It should be called The Collapse(s)
  11. A good defense isn’t necessarily judged by the final score - good defense scores points and more importantly helps win the battle of field position making an offense’s role easier. Also good defenses and defensive schemes were not seen last night - I don’t care what their ranking was.
  12. I beg to differ - if ZW played against a team with so many blown coverages he would have easily made those passes. There were more blown assignments by the KC defense in one night than a weeks’s worth at The Bunny Ranch
  13. I’m sorry that wasn’t the NFL that was batting practice
  14. Agree. Granted the NFL is stacking the deck for more offense - however things are cyclical. Poor defensive performance and poor scheming was hard to believe last night. That to me was the real story of the game. The last 2 minutes and OT were almost farcical. That should never happen in the NFL where both teams not once but twice and a third time for the Bills fold like that. How many broken coverages did KC have - running into each other, wrs being left to run by defense backs uncovered, dBs falling on their asses. if there was one lesson learned- zone coverage is bye bye. You play man to man primarily. You cannot play NFL football like last night where basically accuracy of throws was not required - just get it out there. Actually the best play and pass last night was Allen’s pass on the 2 point conversion to make it 39-36.
  15. When asked what message he had for Mahomes with 13 seconds left: “When it’s grim, be the grim reaper,” Reid said. A reporter stated that was a pretty incredible message. why can’t the Jets get a coach to say such incredible things? Sigh
  16. Agree. Was that game an anomaly? - maybe, but it’s definitely a trend that has been creeping into the NFL for sometime and it’s what the NFL wants. They won’t fix games but the NFL will increase the likelihood that offense will succeed - they will stack the deck. I agree with you - you don’t change your philosophy. If you try to copy them you are doomed. You protect your QB, maximize the depth and talent on the defensive line and you go man to man on wide receivers. San Francisco 49ers are the antidote - it’s just a question whether the NFL will let them succeed.
  17. Defense was dead in that game I’ll give you that. It was embarrassing- as much as people want to throw accolades at QBs throwing complete passes to players wide open equal time is needed to call out the poor play of the defenses. This wasn’t exactly great offensive plays over great defensive performances. It was like watching an NBA game with each team performing through the legs 360 degree twists uncontested dunks initially mesmerizing but reaching the point of absurdity. The spectacular isn’t so special anymore. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised that the NFL wants to go the way of the NBA. Offense offense offense to the point where it doesn’t become special anymore. One on one Mano o Mano. It becomes a bloviated stats game. Develop personalities to popularize the game. The NFL was ecstatic with those two games yesterday. A game that has been losing popularity. The Brady Era is over. Time for new blood. Modern era football blood. How many offensive line holds were called yesterday? In both games - I think zero. It’s quite obvious that the refs were told to bury their flags. How many defensive back holds? Enough to send a message The game is being manipulated for more offense and yesterday particularly the latter game was an extreme example to the point where it became target practice in what was suppose to be an elite professional playoff game. So maybe you are right - get the best talent on offense, create an adequate defense, teach your offense line to hold discretely with a nod and a wink from the NFL and there’s your winning formula I’m not sure in the long run that it is a good thing.
  18. I’m sorry but that was the absolute worst football I’ve watched in a longtime. Entertaining yes to a point, but during both games it became laughable. The Rams did their best keystone cop episode and the second game was so ridiculous that people were spitting out their beers laughing. Those receivers were 5-10 yards open. 4 TDs essentially uncontested in essentially 2 minutes of football. if that’s the new NFL it will get old quickly. I think if JD learned anything from today is you get a D that punches you in the mouth and doesn’t let you get back up. can anyone honestly say that there was one contested pass in the 4th quarter?
  19. I want to know if he can jump out of the shallow end of the pool
  20. I’m just trying to put it in perspective. That’s all.
  21. Bottom line. If the Jets are 11-4 they kick the field goal. they were a 4-11 team. Why not go for it? Wilson executes poorly. The defense has a chance to save the day - they don’t. Cost: they are a 4-12 team.
  22. I’m stunned the game on the line and we are running through them all day and Wilson inexplicably throws a pass on the 2 yard line and gets intercepted … Oh sorry wrong Wilson Brady drove 93 yards on the defense. They stop Brady the qb sneak fail is a footnote. Jets didn’t lose because of that one play.
  23. Ditto on common sense. Your point on children is spot on including your number 94. To add to your point. There are 28,345,000 kids in the USA between the ages of 5 - 11 years of age. That’s a 99.999997% survival rate. You are insane to vaccinate your children with this “vaccine “
