    OT: Official 2020 Tompa Bay Gronkaneers Thread

    The fact is that Tom's arm isn't what it used to be. When you watch his mechanics and the way he has to torque his body to get the ball to arrive on time, especially on longer-developing routes towards the sideline, you can see it requires a lot more effort and the ball doesn't quite pop off his...

    NEW ARTICLE: N'Keal Harry Credits Cam Newton For Helping Build His Confidence Following Career Outing

    I'd wager a guess that I was about as relaxed making my post as you were when you made your post trashing Harry. And no stalking necessary -- I've read your quoted posts in the prior days and simply went back and tracked them down. I've been keenly aware of your anti-Patriots, pro-Brady bias...

    Kicker

    Blankenship also missed a 30-yarder in their season opener. In terms of his 4/4 last Sunday, his long was from 44 yards. Nothing too special. This is what was written about his week 1 performance; hardly anything to be excited about.

    NEW ARTICLE: N'Keal Harry Credits Cam Newton For Helping Build His Confidence Following Career Outing

    It's really stunning how disingenuous and dishonest this post is, making straw-mans of all the other thoughts/perspectives shared in this thread. Your posts (that I've seen) over the past 4-5 days rather clearly indicate you're a Brady fan first, and a Patriots fan second (if at all anymore)...

    Official Post Game Thread - Seattle beats the Pats

    Nothing about Sunday was a "moral" victory. We watched our team go toe-to-toe against a likely SB contender, and the best QB in the league. They didn't almost win that game because of luck; they almost won that game because they're a damn good team. If your takeaway from Sunday is that Cam has...

    Why does 1st round pick Sony Michel play like a jag?

    Michel looks a lot different than he did in college. His body type and size has changed a lot, with him appearing much heavier and bulked up now compared to his days at UGA. I'm not on the Pats' strength & conditioning staff, but to my layman's eye he looks overweight and out-of-shape. I think...

    Week 3 discussion... we're on to Oakland...

    You're quite the cheery one. After declaring the Pats are in a rebuilding year, aren't any good, and were going to get sh*t-stomped by SEA Sunday night (all of which appears to be completely off-the-mark), you're now anticipating a letdown game. How nice.

    OT: Official 2020 Tompa Bay Gronkaneers Thread

    I enter this forum looking to discuss Patriots-related topics. Part of that interest is Tom Brady, how he's doing in Tampa, and relative comparisons between him, Newton, etc -- I find those discussions intriguing, and intuitively click on this thread hoping to have those discussions. It's hit...

    OT: Official 2020 Tompa Bay Gronkaneers Thread

    If this thread is going to live under the Patriots subforum it should be allowed to incorporate Patriots-related discussion. If not for Tom Brady, this thread does not exist. Thus, conversation re: Tom Brady (including his time in NE) should be allowed to occur here. If this is purely a...

    Some Thoughts About the SEA-NE Game

    Not so sure that's true. A guy can be passably fit without being in good shape, and due to personnel limitations, the team may feel they have no other option but to play Michel. Am I off base? Maybe. The guy looks pudgy and out of shape to me. Maybe the strength & conditioning team is happy...

    Some Thoughts About the SEA-NE Game

    Got it - thanks for sharing this. So not the 3-4" difference MSU guy was saying.

    Some Thoughts About the SEA-NE Game

    Yeah, I'm over Michel. Comparing UGA to NE, the biggest difference I see is that the guy is horribly out of shape. I really think if he slimmed down, got his diet and conditioning right, he could be a darn good player as he demonstrated in college. Just looking at his face you can see the amount...

    Some Thoughts About the SEA-NE Game

    Yeah, I'm ready to move on from Sony. I've defended the guy because he was a stud at UGA and I've been waiting for him to put it all together here. To my layman's eye, the guy is horribly out of shape and has been since he was drafted. Comparing his frame, legs, size, even the chubbiness in his...

    New Position --- QB SPY

    You can spy from multiple positions, with multiple players, and those players can be responsible for more than just spying on a given play. Collins served that role in the past, and given the similarities between Uche and Collins, I expect Uche will be playing that role when he sees the field.

    Some Thoughts About the SEA-NE Game

    Absolutely, and you can bet your ass they'll have those wrinkles incorporated in due time. That's the beauty of losing in week 2 -- there are still 15+ weeks to incorporate new looks and greater levels of detail, nuance, and sophistication into the offense. Rather save those game-winning...

    New Position --- QB SPY

    Bentley is not that player, and never will be. To answer Pape's question, because it's a very important point that they raise: This defense won't have a good solution for a QB spy until Uche returns, which is hopefully sooner than later. Assuming Uche plays soon, that will go a LONG way towards...

    Extend Newton

    Missed FG, and if there were more than 3 seconds left when they had the ball at the 1 yard line, they likely score there too. 26-33 points is a more realistic reflection of their true offensive output. Newton was extremely good by every subjective and objective measure. RE: your Edelman...

    Some Thoughts About the SEA-NE Game

    By every official account I can find, both Uche and Collins are 6'3", but I'll admit that Uche doesn't look quite as tall as Collins. The gap isn't as big as you make it out to be, though. That said, they're not entirely different players. They're both athletic freaks with the ability to play...

    Extend Newton

    It's really remarkable how effortless it is for you to be wrong, all the time. That was the best game quarterbacked by a NE QB in a couple years. Newton put on a masterclass, and his extremely precise/accurate passing was a large part of that spectacular performance.

    Extend Newton

    I don't know what game you were watching when you say things like this. Cam made some perfect throws against extremely competitive coverage. I remember watching some of the windows he fit the ball into and thinking, "that looked like a Russell Wilson throw". If you have concerns about his...
