Which NFL quarterback, having a sub-par year, is having a hard time coming to grips since game ball psi became more scrutinized?

Peyton Manning.

just sayin

This word, it does not mean what you think it means. It's possible that the Patriots go undefeated, but 19-0 is like a 7% probability now, not probable at all. You can still get 5:1 odds on the Pats just winning the superbowl alone, which should put an undefeated probability in perspective,.

Thats a bit premature - the Jets have a strong run defense. So the Pats just didn't run the ball AT ALL. I mean, I think Blount had 3 carries, and they ran the ball matbe 6-7 times all game.

Oh, and Brady's running reminded me of this:

I'd like to thank my fantasy football league commissioner for holding our day the day before the brady suspension was overturned,  thus allowing me to draft him in the 8th round.

More like he did it whenever it was there.  Similarly, Tom Brady scares defenses so much that they try to shut down the pass, but he's damn good at reading defenses.  So when the defense says "run on us", he's like, "okay".

He worked in the off-season on running & scrambling more because other teams are relying on it more. 
That's what makes Brady great. He's not committed to any style of play, and works to improve any part of his game.

2015-10-26 9:13:05 AM  
And the Jets' coach handled the final two minutes poorly. That the Jets even got within one score and recovered the onside kick was luck. Had they not left Gronk uncovered for the Pats' final touchdown, NY would have been in great shape to win the game.

Plus LaFelle of New England had a ton of drops yesterday to to inactivity. I believe the same won't happen the next time the teams meet

If the Patriots go 19-0, Brady should walk Gisele out onto the field at the end of the Super Bowl and fark her on the 50 yard line on top of a deflated football, with his middle finger up the entire time.

I can't afford another of my starting RBs to be send to the bench. I've already suffered the loss of Alfred Morris, Tevin Coleman and likely Joseph Randle.

At one point it looked like I had a bevy of solid RBs.

All I have left is Dion Lewis and Gurley... so I'm happy to hear the Pats couldn't run.

bionicjoe: He worked in the off-season on running & scrambling more because other teams are relying on it more.

He did that his rookie season.  He was the slowest player at the Combine; Belichick said if he was gonna make it in the NFL he needed to improve his speed.  One season later he wasn't even the slowest on his team.
But no, he's never gonna impress anyone with his legs no matter how hard he works.  Again, it's just a sparingly used constraint.  He's always good for that once-a-game 11-yard scramble on 3rd and 10 when the defense sees an empty backfield and completely bails on the run.  It wouldn't work at all unless he terrified defenses with his arm, which is a funny thing to say because scouts panned his arm strength.

I never really had an opinion on him until I watched the Belichick episodes of "A Football Life" on the NFL network. Whenever they showed him, he came off as a giant football nerd. It was pretty refreshing.

He's been consistently better at extending plays by moving around this year than ever before but I think all runs still count as fluke circumstances.

It is amazing that Brady is playing so well this year at 38.
He was incredible against an impressive Jets defense where if he had been less than incredible the Pats would have lost.
I thought the loss of Solder,Cannon,Stork and Mason on the O-line would doom the Pats against Harrison,Wilkerson,Richardson and Williams(son) but Tom be nimble, Tom be quick.

That was such a great game.  After the second play I thought we were gonna get blown out 45 to 3 again.  Pretty sure Fitzpatrick had more passing yards than Brady at the half too.  Both teams made great halftime adjustments and it really was anybody's game.  I'm about as satisfied with that loss as anyone can really be with one.

It was a well played game, I was worried the Pats O-line would embarrass themselves and I hoped Fitz would throw a bunch of interceptions but even the weaker links played pretty well.
The Jets deserve respect, the Pats caught a big break when Ivory tweaked his leg right away and I don't expect any 9.5 point lines when the Pats have to go to New York.

Was that really the spread? I wouldn't have taken that, either. #1 Defense vs. #1 Offense means a close game, even with the D being on the road. LaFell with 11 drops also helped NYJ.

opened at 9.5 and only got down to 8 as the week went on.

in the NFL that kind of spread should be reserved for a very good team against a very bad team, two good teams should never see that kind of spread.
I suspect the betting public is a bigger believer in the patriots invincibility myth and the revenge tour story line than those of us who follow the team closely are.

Yeah that was a pretty unfortunate play to start the game, but that's football.  The Pats dropped like 10 passes too.  Jets just made a few small mistakes that really hurt them.  Marshall dropping a pass that would of certainly been a TD, Fitz throwing that 40 yard bomb to Smith in the 4th quarter on 3rd and 6th was a pretty poor decision, and then the D running an all out blitz on the goal line leaving Gronk wide open for the TD.  The on side kick recovery was pure luck and they just needed a few more seconds to be able to give it a shot which would of been a great way to end the game, but all in all, I was pretty impressed with that performance, especially in the Pats house.

I think a key difference was the Pats winning the punting game, the Jets had much, much worse average starting positions.  The Pats have a good punting game but I don't think that level of difference is going to be repeated reliably .

I don't think so. If they were so lucky to go into week 14 with a 13-0 record, they would feel like they had a chance to do what they couldn't do before. When they lost in 2007 it wasn't because they didn't rest their guys near the end of the year. They just had one bad game after a bad week of practice filled with distractions from the "taped the Rams walkthrough" story.

About the only thing you might be able to say about that year was their last game against the Giants their offense put up a number of points in a great shootout. I'll bet Coughlin learned how he could stop them during that game. The Patriots probably showed more than they wanted to in that game.

undefeated is a factorial equation, even if you start with a very high percentage estimate for winning games the chances of winning them all are tiny.

jaylectricity: CodeMonkey4Life: people predicting undefeated teams in week 7 don't understand math or football.

Ok, but this isn't a game of complete chance. Percentages of probability as a simple math equation doesn't really apply. I'm not predicting an undefeated season, but I wouldn't even be surprised.


probabilities not chance. I don't think the Pats are like flipping a coin , more like rolling a loaded dice ;)

I would be surprised, there are 10 (or 13) games and fluke plays and turnovers could happen in any one of them.
I like this Pats team but even 90% would be just 35% after 10 games and 25% after 13
I think an average 80% win probability would indicate an incredibly good team and that would be down to 5.5% after 13 tries

Green Bay? Haha, yeah, OK.

None of these teams are going undefeated or even just 1 loss, wouldn't be shocked if all of them had minimum 2-3 losses by the end of the season. Patriots in particular will sit guys and lose games once they clinch home field advantage.

undefeated is a factorial equation, even if you start with a very high percentage estimate for winning games the chances of winning them all are tiny.

jaylectricity: AdamK: Patriots in particular will sit guys and lose games once they clinch home field advantage.

I don't think so. If they were so lucky to go into week 14 with a 13-0 record, they would feel like they had a chance to do what they couldn't do before. When they lost in 2007 it wasn't because they didn't rest their guys near the end of the year. They just had one bad game after a bad week of practice filled with distractions from the "taped the Rams walkthrough" story.

About the only thing you might be able to say about that year was their last game against the Giants their offense put up a number of points in a great shootout. I'll bet Coughlin learned how he could stop them during that game. The Patriots probably showed more than they wanted to in that game.


Always say "the bullshiat Rams Walk through story which was retracted less then 24 hours later". People still think that actually happened.

Tom Brayd truly is the greatest athlete since Micheal Jordon.  I don't think people realize how lucky Bill Bilecheck is to have the guy.

Hell, imagine if you had Tom Brayd at quarterback, Secretariet in the backfield, Jordon and Lants Armstrong at the wings, Tiger Woulds at the tight end, and Rhonda Rousey at kicker.  Wow.  My heart would explode, at how much heart they have.

I think even when Brady retires, the Pats will still have Belichick for a while. They will at least stay favored for the division with him, but probably not much more than that. I don't see them going back to pre Brady/Belichick levels anytime soon.

I'm trying to enjoy this year win or lose.
I suspect there aren't many left before the Pats are talking about the next Brady the way the rest of the AFC East talk about the next Marino or Kelly or Namath. Great QBs are hard to find and I feel lucky the Pats found even one.

Ehh, I'm not worried about GB because I don't know if it will be Pats/GB.......I mean, just in the AFC East,  the Jets looked WAAAAAYYY better than they have in ages. And Miami is rebounding.

I would guess that it's going to be Pats, Jets, Bengals, Steelers, Broncos, Colts. I think the Pats will win, but it's gonna be a fight.

Then there is the NFC - I think it's going to be Giants, Eagles, Panthers, Falcons,GB and Cards.
I think the Panthers worry me more than GB.

Either way, looks like the postseason should be good

Belichick is a fantastic coach, but without Brady I don't think they will be major contenders anymore unless they found a great replacement.  Gronk probably isn't going anywhere soon, so if the patriots can pick up another great QB (kinda like Young after Montana) they may be able to have another go at it.  Looks unlikely to me because I bet Brady will retire on a great year (Maybe even this year if they win the super bowl again, but i bet next season will be his last honestly), which means a late draft pick.  I'm sure next year they will be looking for a backup to replace Brady.  They'll have to trade away a lot of assets to get a QB, unless they can get that super lucky late draft pick sleeper who just happens to come in after the starter is injured, and becomes the next Tom Brady.

The injuries to the Pats O-Line meant reshuffling players and basically killing their run game between the hash marks, that and Dion Lewis being out hasn't helped as Blount isn't as good at being a dual threat. On the flip side they got Hightower back which helped, but either way stuff like this throughout the season is why 99% of the time teams never stay undefeated, I personally wouldn't be shocked if they lost a close one at home to Miami.

Denver is a case of "when" not "if" that Wade Phillips' vaunted defense suffers its first collapse, it's like a race to see who is the first to target the middle of that defense with a tall weapon and quick throws wins.

Green Bay also has issues with their defense, they have not played as well as they did last year - maybe guys like Peppers being one year older isn't helping, who knows - they too also have injury issues on offense.

Then you've got Carolina and Cincinnati who may be the most well-rounded undefeated teams atm.

Either way people always say "week to week" with the NFL which is true but it's also a season long attrition test.

No, the AFC South is even worse than the NFC South was last year... a 5 win team could win the division this year, the two worst teams are 8-35 since the start of just last season, all 4 teams' head coaches should probably be fired and there's maybe 1 good owner in this entire division.

What?  Stats wise the Packers are kind of remarkably similar to last year in their first 6 games for most stats like yards/game completion percentage, etc.  The main difference seems to be they are giving up around 5 less points per game on average this year than last (keep in mind they currently have league leading defense in scoring), and they also have 10 more sacks in the first 6 games than last year.  Interestingly they are doing about the same in red zone percentages as last year, so my guess is they are giving up less big plays on defense and special teams.  I'm not saying they will remain the defensive leader in points allowed, as that isn't particularly sustainable given how many yards they are giving up, but this years D, from what I've seen is playing significantly better than last year, particularly at the start of last year.

/just like hating the Patriots and making up excuses for their achievements to convince yourself that your team might have a chance to go somewhere.

Yup. They keep insisting Bwady is the greatestest QB evar and don't shut the fark up, but god help you if you bring up getting caught cheating. Again.

So, thankfully, they're like P90xers and vegans....they self-identify like its an airborne contagion. We can then Farky them the tard color, pat them on the head and throw a tater tot to distract them so the grown ups can talk.

xaks: bionicjoe: dragonchild: swankywanky: Brady running is like Bird dunking. Yep, he did it, but it didn't happen a lot and when it did there wasn't much...well, style....but got the job done.
More like he did it whenever it was there.  Similarly, Tom Brady scares defenses so much that they try to shut down the pass, but he's damn good at reading defenses.  So when the defense says "run on us", he's like, "okay".

He worked in the off-season on running & scrambling more because other teams are relying on it more. 
That's what makes Brady great. He's not committed to any style of play, and works to improve any part of his game.

What I love about watching him play is that you can see the work he puts in...even now, 15 years in...that he is TIRELESS in his work on his mechanics. Watch him as he takes a snap and drops back, how he sets his feet....he's as close to flawless on any given dropback as you can get. The man is a machine in offseason prep and his tape shows it


Hey man....I know we've had our spats but I appreciate those comments about Brady. Cheers.

Butkus retired in '73. Montana came into the league in '79. The Fearsome Foursome also predated Montana, and the Steel Curtain as well as the Purple People Eaters were on the back ends of their legacies by '79.

You guys always get this wrong.  The worst is the association of 31 other teams' fans being sore losers over each and every year for 15 years.  And 15 years is just about the entire life of internet comment popularity.  So it's like 31 out of every 32 fans in the NFL have been whining forever and ever.  It's ruined.  YOU RUINED IT.

It goes both ways.  Pats fans certainly love throwing it down everyone's throats.  Brady will have to retire soon.  The Pats legacy has a good chance of dying there for a very long time.
