    I disagree with 2 out of 3.

    I would remove "did not run the ball enough" and "too many pass attempts" (the same thing as Ruthless points out).

    And I would swap in "terrible FG %age" and "too...

    It sounds like insurance fraud too.

    I wonder what his policy reads like. He invited them in and willingly left them by themselves. It's not like breaking and entering. I haven't had to deal with...

    I think Hampton > Hargrave, but that's probably because Casey was among the best in his time at what he did.

    Hargrave is good and maybe better suited to today's NFL than Casey would be.

    I...

    And hopefully using his insane speed to put Brady on his ass a few times.

    I like that we've played them well the last few times in difficult circumstances.
    - Last year with Conner out
    - Two years ago after Shazier was injured.

    I also like that we'll be playing them...

    I think the real message here is

    If you have 2 naked women in your bed, don't leave. You stay there until they are finished.

    Note. The same is true for any non-zero number of women in your...

    I think it's reasonable to assume that Juju will take some time to adjust to his new role.

    And in week 1, I assume that the Pats will take Juju away and make us win with Conner and the new guys.

    I agree that we should swing for the fences on late round picks.

    I'd much rather have guys with high ceilings and high chance to get cut over guys who likely top out at ST player.

    My guess is that the 4th down call was what the analytics would have suggested.

    Similarly, analytics probably also suggested that Carrol dialing up a passing play on the goal line was a good...

    If I had to pick between extremes "pure emotion" vs. "pure analytics", I'd take pure analytics without question.

    That said, I think that the analytical tools we have probably still neglect or fail...

    I hope that we can go back to distributing between multiple good (but not necessarily great) targets.

    Note that the stats you're presenting here ("A HOF QB shoulda had 40 TDs throwing THAT much")...

    I think your idea here is reasonable and I hope you're right.

    But it's also not the only possible explanation.

    Another potential explanation is that Ben's deep ball accuracy is declining with...

    I agree 100%.

    With 2 years left, I think contract extension this year is a non issue.

    I think that development is critical for success of this team because we're relying on having good to great...

    This is what I'm hoping for. I think that if the QB can make good decisions quickly it's a very good strategy.

    I think it will mostly depend on whether Ben can run that kind of offense.
  18. This is the mistake that I was making before...

    This is the mistake that I was making before (maybe even earlier in this thread).

    Based on comments I had read, I assumed that the upcoming season was the last in Tomlin's contract. If that were...

    If he equals his best totals (64 rec, 668 yards, 7 TDs) think he's probably a mid-tier WR2.

    Last year, the 48th ranked WR (John Brown BAL) had 42 rec, 715 yards, and 5 TDs.

    If he gets his...

    I'm pretty sure you'll deflect this, but I'll try anyway.

    Saints coach Sean Peyton (who has almost the same resume as Tomlin) missed the playoffs in 4 of 5 years (2012, 14, 15, 16). In all those...

    Re: Franchise QBs

    They may not be all they're cracked up to be.

    This article talks about how they tend to take up so much of the salary cap that they make your team significantly worse in other...

    Ruthless, you're missing the clearly obvious point that in the following date ranges (where the team didn't sign Tomlin to a contract) they thought he was a terrible coach.

    1/23/07 - 7/12/10...

    Can you compare that to the success of coaches with other non-Brady franchise QBs outside of their rookie deals?

    I've tried to do this a few times (and will try again here), but another...

    This is definitely a Tomlin-ism. I like analytics a lot and think they should be used in sports more than they are.

    But, he's also right that whatever models the analytical people use don't...
