All Page 1 Zach Wilson Threads: MERGED

I had interpreted the grain to be popular opinion i.e. who goes high. Best guys have gone outside the top 5.

Big meh to QBase. The best QB’s in the league have middling projections and the guys with the best projections aren’t elite. The new model still hates Allen too so while they say the big value is projecting busts, not so sure I agree.

Simms seems to flip flop some and doesn’t have a particularly long track record. It’ll be more interesting when he’s got more data.

Qbase's value is actually predicting busts not elite players.

Instead of explaining why we shouldn’t trade down ... I’ll just leave this here . U guys will like this @Mogglez @football guy 

Because this thread isn’t the only place where it happens. Post a film review?  It’s a race to see how quickly it can be derailed by children who are upset that the Jets might not get them their

Just say you paid for Matt Waldman’s RSP and be done with it.

A predictive measure isn’t gonna change because something improbably happened. He’s an outlier. Those exist. Altering the metric to correct for the outlier is not more accurate.

Or it’s just a bad metric. He’s not the only predicted bust it missed, and most drafted NFL quarterbacks bust anyway so picking busts isn’t particularly impressive. Plus none of the top guys by the metric are not actually elite NFL quarterbacks, and the metric didn’t identify any of the actually elite quarterbacks as elite either.

Most players bust and it’s missed on busts as well. The guy right next to Allen in the projections is Flacco.

Also I literally said “while they say the big value is projecting busts” in the post you quoted. What are you trying to add exactly?

Seeing as I have no life I spent a lot of my Good Friday digging through Matt Waldman's previous projections and while I'm not diminishing the work he puts in there's enough bizarre takes to not have me worrying that he's not high on Wilson.

Again, I don’t care about the opinion of a borderline troll of a poster who stole another person’s username to hide from the mods/circumvent a ban.  Since my past track record gets brought up quite a bit, I’ll remind everyone of yours (from your other account), once again:
 

philc1 is thadude?

hahahahaha

I'm not familiar with Waldman's previous projections - any good examples?

what you say is probably true (has QBase come out yet for 2021?)

but like they say in the stock market past performance doesn't guarantee future returns 

side note if we are taking PFF as gospel, they never recorded a lineman better than Penei Sewell 19 season. Quenton Nelson is their all time #2 and Ryan Ramcyzk their all time #3 

according to PFF, Sewell is an instant All Pro 

 

They may be right about Sewell.  But that doesn't mean you pick him at 2 in this draft when you don't have a QB.

Wilson's short accuracy is great but his intermediate and long accuracy are not as pinpoint as people say. Aspects like off platform throwing abilities and mobile throwing accuracy doesn't match the reputation and he uses like every throw in CFB to back it up. like he's got tables and tables of all the different types of throws etc.  He quantifies good throws as pinpoint accurate 

he does say Wilson excels at back shoulder type throws and has other nice things to say about him. But again, I'm not going to rip the dude off for months worth of work. 

 

The stats say that Wilson't long accuracy was the best in the country this year.  Those stats have been everywhere.  Intermediate not quite as good.  But don't let the facts get in the way of your argument.

I always wondered why there were two philc's.

It was the ultimate d!ck move to do that.  Unfortunately, the other guy doesn’t post that often so it actually worked.  Except for one problem:

Jets should draft McLovin at 2.

I think what many of us are overlooking is just his fit in the offense the Jets will want to run. Reason why the Niners want him. He can make all the throws necessary from every angle and position in the pocket. If the Jets feel they need that type QB for their system, then what’s the problem?

He was really high on Will Grier.

Also especially loved Mark Sanchez, Nate Davis, Brian Brohm, Blaine Gabbert and John Beck. Think he was also pretty high on Haskins and Rosen too. 

To be fair I bet most people have similar misses if you’re doing it for so long but it’s enough to put the mind at ease that the guy discounting Wilson doesn’t seem exceptionally better than most evaluators.

Wilson fan here! & I don’t approve of this thread. Make no mistake, I will be extremely excited if we draft him & I’ll most likely be clinging to every throw he makes from training camp to the end of the season, but this savior stuff is stale and it does us no good. Sam “The Savior”, “Mark Sanchize”, etc, etc. 

I’d enjoy it if we wait & see how Wilson plays before we anoint him savior of the franchise. If he has a rookie season like Justin Herbert, I’d hang a banner up for the kid in the rafters....not now..not until it happens.

Delete this.

Sceew this savior non sense.

I strongly support drafting him, but this is not how NFL works. Zach will not succeed here unless a good team is built around him. 

Did you hear what Steve Young and Chris Simms said?

Okay, I know a troll response when I see one.
 

Been on the Interwebz long enough.

How is that a troll response? Every Jets fan should be pumped! Wilson is one of the most hyped prospects I can remember.

We replaced the Sanchize with a Ginger and now we're going to a headband.

I need to see at least two consecutive seasons of great QB play before I declare anyone a savior of anything.

What I like is that @GreekJet has moved into saying things that Jets fans say in order to try and confuse and frustrate Jets fans into angrily disagreeing with a Giants fan who thinks he’s “owning” Jets fans. Also I doubt he’s Greek.
