In response to rkarp's comment:
we will find out in about 3 weeks...
prior to my cable company getting NFL network, and the ability to see NFL Network Replay, I was only able to see other teams on Monday night games, and most Sunday night games. I have been at every Sunday game played or have worked a Sunday game for the past 25 years...not a lot of chances to see other games other than NFL replay and some game film (only started last year and only saw a couple of games)...of course I do see teams that come here, but have not seen the Raiders in quite some time.
I did see AWilson play against the PAts last year, and he did not stand out at all, but Campbell, Washington, Lenon and Peterson did. And of course Ghost with his miss. I went back and checked the stats on Wilson, 2 tackles, 1 assist. Pats has 17 passing 1st downs. 400 yards total offense...
Well, if you don't know other players and are clueless, why are you mouthing off? You just continue to mouth off like a clueless dork. It's a constant thing with you.
How many points did our crappy offense score against the Cardinals that day? ANd, I don't care if others had stronger stats in the secondary. It's not all about stats. Wilson is the one who is calling plays from the back end. Paris Lenon? He's an average player whom BB cut here like 4 years ago.
You do realize Gostkowski even had a chance to win that game because of our D (Spikes I believe caused that fumble, late in the 4th), correct?
Brady was wise to stay far away from Adrian Wilson in that game last year, but the points allowed by Arizona's D last year vs us, tells the tale. You aren't fooling anyone. Brady started the day with an INT and it was all downhill from there.
Somewhat comical Brady threw out of the shotgun a ton vs a good D back ended by possible future HOF SS, Adrian Wilson. 46 passes, 1 INT, and can't get to 20 points scored in a home opener.
Looks like my premise holds and continues to hold, huh, RKrap? Hey, did you ask your "colleague" with all this special info why Brady has sucked or been so mediocre in the shotgun in the playoffs?
What does Kelly having the ability to play the 3/4 or Wilson have the ability to cover turn into Brady bashing you troll?
I asked Wozzy a simple question regarding Kelly, yet you step in and ruin this thread like you do every other thread. This thread has nothing to do with Brady or the shot gun.
and I was at that game, Wilson had zero impact, and was off the field for much of the game.
And yes, I did ask my colleague (Troy Brown) why Brady sucked in the playoff games and he said that aside from Wes and Hernandez, Brady felt Lloyd and Branch were getting zero sepration and not getting open, and due to Edleman injury, there were not alternatives to Wes or Hern. He also thought the oline gave Brady enough time, but the WR's did not have the abilopen to get open. He also thought that the oline did not run block well, making the run game difficult. The Pats tried to run, but it simply was not there. Your man crush BB must agree, as he completely cleaned house on the WR's and is going to try rookies and retreads as an upgrade.
Ouch, you are wrong again, as usual.
As an aside, I will be working with Ty next month. Since the work is taped, there will be down time and a lot of waiting around. I will post why you are also wrong about the defense after hopefully speaking with him.
100% correct. Our receivers over the last couple of seasons (aside from Wes) were not getting separation. You watch a guy like Rodgers play and you can see how easy his receivers make some of his throws, Brady doesn't have that, his throws have to be absolutely perfect....if not the play will not be made. Rodgers two years ago could stand back there and whip that ball with no worry that it wouldn't be complete - there was 5 yards betweeen his receiver and the defender!
I'm hoping the young legs they are bringing in will make a difference, these kids may not know what is going on, but their legs at least should get a little separation once in a while and make throws easier. In the mean time guys like Hernandez and Amendola should be in the right spot.
Like you I am also hopeful the "kids" can somehow catch on enough to this offense to contribute something this year. The one thing I can say for at least Dobson and Boyce is that they are tremendously athletic and in the case of Dobson he has amazing body control when he is in the air.
If they do pan out this offense can become better than it has been in a while. Just think about the flexibility if these 2 kids pan out with the multiple TE's and the atleticism we have in the backfield with Ridley and Vareen.
