    LOL, Good Call. Sounds about right Eng!

     

    Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias manifesting in two principal ways:

    Unskilled individuals suffer from illusory superiority, mistakenly rating their ability much higher than is accurate. This bias is attributed to a metacognitive inability of the unskilled to recognize their ineptitude.[1]
    Those persons to whom a skill or set of skills come easily may find themselves with weak self-confidence, as they may falsely assume that others have an equivalent understanding. See Impostor syndrome.

    The funny thing about the effect is those affected by the effect can be separated by intelligence levels which those with higher intelligence tended to greatly underestimate both their IQ number and their abilities compared to the average person while those with lower intelligence tend to give astronomical IQ numbers that can't actually be calculated and over exaggerate their abilities and achievements. (btw you can't accurately score an IQ over 140, it's the limitation of the test hence anyone claims higher without saying it's a doctors estimate is in fact lying. Anyone who grades on that level can confirm this as the testers won't actually give you a number but refer you to a specialist if you're interested). Doesn't mean it's true for all causes, as their are plenty of egocentric intelligent people and those of lesser intelligence who underestimate their abilities, but a large % tend to fall into the categories above.

    Re: day 1

    Hearing more good things from KT in camp. He was the best WR on the field and made a lot of nice catches. Lafell looked good in his drills as well but dropped a couple late in the sessions which is on par with his scouting report.(If he has these lapses in regular season, then my prediction could blow up in my face)

    Travis Hawkins seems to be getting some early attention by taking some 1st team reps. All the guys returning from injury looked the part and made it through practice.

    Starting line was same as last year(Vollmer is ready) and Kline was first rotation guy.

    Mayo and Browner(glad he can practice so he hits the ground running week 5) had pass breakups in the endzone.

    The Grap had an up and down day as expected. Had some wild throws but settled in as the day went on.

    T.Wilson seems to be getting his last chance to impress by getting some early reps w/1st team. He played that rover spot in Nickel and Dime, 3rd safety. He better impress.

    Lafell, Vareen, Boyce, Finch, White and Hawkins all took reps on the kickoff return team. Lots of kickoff work which is needed and Hawkins seemed to impress in that area.

    Lots of work for both Vareen and White esp. in passing game which is what most expected. Lots of screens and short passes which is a welcome sight as the last couple years Pats have gotten away from it. Need a balanced offense.

     

    You can thank A.Hart for his observations.

    At this stage, I still see Boyce as possible the odd man out unless he can emerge as a returner. He doesnt show enough familiarity of the offense as others in front of him. I know he is a fan favorite for his potential but thats my surprise cut.

    Good stuff, but boy I hope they are wrong about Boyce, I'm one of those people that is intrigued with his talent level. I'd like to see him put it all together.
