  1. To be fair, Fran Tarkenton and Joe Montana also beat every team. There were only 28 teams in the league when they did though.
  2. This is a tough one. Ingram is vital to our offense. He's also at the age where Rb's historically begin to fall off the cliff. Walter Payton and Marcus Allen are the only exceptions I can think of who were still dominant into their mid 30's.
  3. One of the LSU greats. HOF'er Art Donovan said Taylor was the reason he knew he had to retire. He told HC Weeb Eubank in 1960 " I can't catch him" .
  4. seems to be a sudden heart attack. he appeared to be fine a few days before
  5. I know it's technically not a record, but Brees threw 99 tds in a 100 consecutive game stretch. Unless we go to pure flag football rules, that will never be approached.
  6. We had a similar conversation several years ago. Richard Sherman was at his peak and very vocal. His war of words with Michael Crabtree was getting a lot of media attention. Marques Colston had the nickname Quiet Storm. When the Saints and Seahawks met in the playoffs, Sherman never said a thing about Colston after the game. Colston just did his job and let his play talk. In fact, after MC's TD in the playoffs, Sherman helped him up and patted him on the back. Jackson called it quiet confidence. It's the best way to take a player out of his game. Sometimes the smartest thing a man can say is nothing at all.
  7. Honestly, I wish pro athletes would keep their mouth shut. Tom Jackson said there were only two players who intimidated him. They were Earl Campbell and Walter Payton. The reason was they said nothing after they ran you over.
  8. Tom Brady's main competition most of his career was Vinnie Testaverde and Chad Pennington. That's a road map to a Div title and home field advantage.
  9. We just witnessed the birth of the next great one.
  10. Jacksonville cannot stop him
  11. Is their a better mentor than Bill Parcells? Sean called him about the onside kick in SB 44. Bill simply told him, you don't win a Sb without balls. I love Parcells. He's the quintessential New Jersey tough guy from the streets
  12. I'm glad we drafted Lattimore,but the better player in the long term will be Mahones Imho. What separates him from other athletic Qb's is he's deadly accurate when scrambling.
  13. I said this last year when he made this run. He avoided the last tackler who was approaching from behind. I've only seen two Rb's in my 50 years of watching who did the same. They were Gayle Sayers and Barry Sanders. We have a special one my fellow Whodats There is no way he saw him. Call it spidey sense if you're into comics

  15. I would prefer it to be in the dome, but I think it's this week vs the Giants
  16. I posted this in another thread. Deion Sanders said the following on NFLN after the game. The biggest problem is the Cb opposite Lattimore. He went on to say if the Saints fixed that problem they'd be NFC favorites for the Super Bowl
  17. I agree with putting Lattimore on OBJ. Like Ryan, Eli has historically been deadly against the blitz. Make him work his way down the field. He'll usually make a critical mistake at some point.
  18. This was discussed on WWL last night. Allen put Lattimore on Ridley and he was never heard from again. We took our chances with Crawley on Julio and it thankfully worked out. We need Crawley to get his head out of his ass and play better. it's that simple
  19. imo, he's in the Vinne Testaverde class. He's good, but a step below HOF class. He's had wr's throughout his career Brees would dream of.
  20. https://thefalconswire.usatoday.com/2017/06/23/falcons-qb-matt-ryan-had-nfls-2nd-highest-touchdown-rate-vs-blitz/ I know we hate him, but you don't blitz Ryan. Brod and I had a conversation awhile back. He told me the first thing HS Qb's are taught is how to read a blitz. You can get away with it sometimes, but if you do it constantly like Greg Williams did here, you'll pay a heavy price. The name of the game on defense today is coverage by Db's. Ryan is on pace for 65,000 + yds passing and 400 Td's if he avoids serious injury in the next 5 years. Hate to say it, but that's not stats a bad Qb puts up.
  21. You then leave the TE and Rb's wide open between the Lb'ers and Db's. The answer is Crawley needs to earn his paycheck.
  22. I'll look up the stats later, but Ryan is deadly against the blitz. If I were DC, I'd drop 8 and rush 3. Historically, he's been Matty dump off against that scheme. You just need the first man to make the tackle.
