  1. Dan Campbell: I have zero problem with people thinking I’m a meathead
  2. Frank Ragnow: Matthew Stafford is my favorite teammate ever
  3. I googled "nfl air yards" https://www.pro-football-reference.com/years/2020/passing_advanced.htm Doesn't seem to have pre-2019
  4. Goff's air yards in 2020 was pretty bad. I think that would support the hypothesis. His YAC was pretty good though so I guess that accuracy did help somewhat on those dinks and dunks. Something that was interesting is that Stafford's intended air yards per attempt was super high last year in his 8 games so I guess the Lions were actually airing the ball out last year too.
  5. Report: Eagles have yet to be offered a first-round pick for Carson Wentz This makes way more sense than what we were hearing before. And if the Eagles really had that Bears offer from earlier and didn’t accept it they are morons.
  6. Chris Doyle resigns from Jaguars a day after taking the job
  7. I want Stafford to do well, such a great dude. Matthew Stafford, wife give $1 million going away gift to Detroit
  8. Lions sign Alize Mack Drafted by the Saints. Apparently a highly touted high school prospect with suspension issues in college.
  9. In a vacuum I think you are right. In this deal I’m not 100% sure. The Rams wanted Stafford. To make it work they had to move Goff at some point. If they trade for Stafford first everyone else knows they are stuck and they lose leverage when trading Goff. If they trade Goff first they are putting themselves at risk of missing out on Stafford so they lose leverage with Detroit. Luckily for both sides Detroit was interested in Goff and LA wanted Stafford. I think the Lions could get a better return because they don’t need Goff. I’m not saying the Rams traded a 1st for Detroit to take Goff. I’m saying they probably didn’t get as much for Goff as they would have outside the Stafford trade.
  10. This is what drives me crazy. Teams like KC literally push the boundaries on purpose then complain that the refs affected the game. No, their attempt at breaking the rules to their advantage was not allowed to affect the game. The Chiefs might even have a reputation for interfering. https://www.nbcsports.com/bayarea/49ers/chiefs-called-2021-super-bowl-penalties-49ers-expected-2020 Which led to me looking up some stats to see that KC is near the top of the league the last 2 years in the combination of defensive holding, illegal contact, and pass interference. This year the TB defense is near the bottom (12 total!) and they were middle of the road last year. https://www.footballdb.com/stats/penalties.html?yr=2020&sort=dh https://www.footballdb.com/stats/penalties.html?yr=2019&sort=dh There were close plays on both sides, sure. But I can recall numerous times that KC made contact with the targeted receiver before the ball is there. Even on the 3rd down and 1 play in the 4th quarter Mathieu grabbed Gronk while the ball was in the air, it was just way overthrown so not called. That PI in the endzone at the end of the half was Mathieu running to make contact with the receiver well past the line of scrimmage.
  11. If you commit penalties on every play they quickly become ticky tack. I mean just play defense. Stop grabbing or running into receivers. It's the Packers school of blocking.
  12. I see the Chiefs defensive philosophy is to commit penalties on every play and count on the officials to not call them. Patrick Mahomes and the offense is amazing but now their otherworldly success makes so much more sense.
  13. Unless the Panthers or Broncos get REALLY desperate.
