    I think people said he had a lower ceiling because he played much more and so is probably higher up the learning curve.

    But it's all just guessing.

    I don't think anyone is all that good at...

    To me the encouraging things are that we exceeded expectations in the last 3 years even though we had poor QB play (Mason/Duck + last year). If we can get average QB play this year, I hope we can...

    I agree that accuracy is the most important thing. And I said that several times during the draft process...which is why I didn't really want any of the QBs in the this draft after hearing the...

    Is anyone arguing that passing is more important for a QB than running?
  6. I don't love the projection of a "ceiling"...

    I don't love the projection of a "ceiling" because it's all just guessing and "ceiling" probably doesn't even really have a definition. Or at least it's probably something that's different enough for...

    Ben won because of athleticism and extending plays. Not because of accuracy. Lots of people have talked about how Ben liked his receivers "college open". And when he was winning SBs he wasn't really...

    I agree that anyone that thinks running is more important than passing is being foolish. This is why I didn't want Willis because it sounded like he wasn't good at passing.

    But mobility is a good...

    I think DL is the biggest wildcard.

    If Tuitt comes back and plays like he did in 2020 and Alualu can stay healthy, I think it will be a strength of the team.

    But I wouldn't put money on both of...

    I think that the problem with this level of analysis is that there are not many QBs that have won the SB period.

    In total I think it's 30 QBs that have won SBs.

    In the last 21 years (the Brady...

    This is how I feel about Ben as well.

    Used his athleticism to extend plays and make huge gains.

    I believe Ward said something about how it was great to have a QB who would keep his eyes...

    And part of the reason he had lots of fumbles is that he played lots of games.

    I think part of that situation is coaching. Because they replaced a likely Hall of Fame coach with an AHL guy...even though it sounds like the HoF guy was a bit of a dick. And every playoff loss has...

    I agree that QB and defense wins. And I think that having that elite defense made it easier to Ben to take chances and recover from mistakes. You need to be good on both sides of the ball to win most...

    I certainly argued with people that didn't want to sign TJ. I think that was silly because you do what you can to keep elite players in their primes. I will probably not be excited about signing TJ...

    As I said, Ben is Ben. And it was amazing at times. Won us SBs. Earned him a 1st ballot HoF induction.

    But the same thing that made him great also cost us dearly at times. And the frequency of it...

    So you would be arguing that Tomlin would be a better coach if we missed the playoffs in the last 2 years?

    Somehow, I doubt it.

    This is what I think too.

    Let Mitch and Kenny battle for the job.

    Keep Mason around in case someone gets hurt. Maybe trade him late in the preseason if everyone looks healthy and the late pick...

    I may be getting this wrong, but I thought I heard that Pickett's fumbles per game are actually better than several of the other QBs in the draft.

    That's interesting.
