    The battle for 1st seed - 2018

    If you read my comment prior to the one you quoted, you'll see that I conceded Talib will improve things, it's the magnitude I disagree with. As for Gronk, the fact that NE is banking so much on him is why we know they aren't as good as years past. :shrug_n:

    We're almost in December. They are what they are.

    The battle for 1st seed - 2018

    Being happy about your team coming back is one thing. Thinking that a performance is a source of optimism for the future is something different altogether. For your sake, I hope you meant the former. :toast:

    The battle for 1st seed - 2018

    The Rams have a lot of great names, but the defense as a whole actually kinda blows. Compared to NE, I'd trust them more to score TDs and force a game ending turnover, but that's about it. Talib coming back won't make them any better than average, which is enough, given their offense.

    The battle for 1st seed - 2018

    Meh, the loss in TN already blew NE's shot. KC ain't losing again, so it's #2 or bust for the good guys.

    The battle for 1st seed - 2018

    The Jags went all out..... on defense. The offense seemed to be barely paying attention to what was happening on the field. They could have literally run a high school option offense the entire second half and they would have won going away. Instead, it was all runs up the middle into a...

    The battle for 1st seed - 2018

    Wait.... are you trying to say that yesterday's game should be a source of optimism for Pittsburgh fans? :huh:

    Pats vs Titans, Week 10, 2018

    That being much better than the Pats does not mean the defense is itself very good. They're OK. If you want to isolate the front seven then they are good. Maybe bottom of the top 10 in the league. Nothing that should have held even the undermanned NE squad to below ~24 points.

    Did I say otherwise? :shrug_n: :archive:

    Pats vs Titans, Week 10, 2018

    Not really. Their offense blows and the defense is mediocre. That you would take their defense over NE's is not a credit to TN. At the risk of having my own Bruschi 3:16 moment, this game marks the end of NE as a legitimate 2018 SB threat, IMO. They're a better, more likable version of the...

    The Titans are playing well. Anyone know when the Patriots are scheduled to show up?

    Looking at the Patriots - 2018

    I have to ask again, do you really think people are too stupid to read the stats for themselves? You still don't seem to get that what is confounding is not your point but your outlandish reaction to something that is perfectly straightforward.

    Didn't Burkhead need to be activated today or else he's still on IR?

    Looking at the Patriots - 2018

    Changing goal posts? :confused: Not at all. "Passer rating on throws to X" is perfectly normal application of stats. Nor is this about what people want to hear, the numbers speak for themselves. Do you really think people aren't intelligent enough to see that Gordon still trails in several...

    Looking at the Patriots - 2018

    Just reread this and noticed a couple things: Perhaps I'm wrong, but "target rating" reads to me like passer rating on throws to those receivers. I suspect most analysts would disagree, largely because YPA is not at all synonymous with air yards. Which is precisely the problem. You do...

    Looking at the Patriots - 2018

    Why are you getting defensive? You expressed confusion as to the ordering and I explained the reason for it. No more, no less. :shrug_n:

    Looking at the Patriots - 2018

    They are ranked by a rate stat (passer rating), so counting stats like comps, attempts, first downs and yards only matter in the sense of efficiency. Furthermore your description of lowest catch% is misleading. In actuality, there are two tiers of relative equals; it matter that Gordon is in...

    Patriots vs Packers, Week 9 2018

    That was him but "whiff" is not accurate, IMO. The tackle was missed, but the path through traffic made it a tough angle, especially given the direction Jones was going. And the fact that Jones is terrific to begin with.

    Am I the only one who thinks Elandon Roberts has actually been NFL caliber this year?

    Patriots vs Packers, Week 9 2018

    Are you referencing penalties to illustrate a substantial coaching disparity between the teams? If so, I agree. As for the schedule, where do you get the idea that Pitt's has been particularly tough? KC is outstanding, but what else are you looking at? Cleveland and Baltimore twice...
