  1. you realize why though, right? This fanbase is absolutely scarred by the 2016 season. Top 10 all-time offense, but the HC was a defensive guy and you can't just fire your HC after the most successful season the team has since 1998. Shanahan left and the team hasn't been anywhere close to the same since. If you get an elite offensive mind like Shanahan as your HC, you don't have to worry about him leaving. EDIT: My vote is the same as it was last year. Joe Brady.
  2. it's odd to me that Matt Ryan as a woman could pass for Kristen Wiig
  3. meanwhile, no team expanded their analytics division last year more than the Ravens. I guess that worked out pretty OK for them too. 🙄
  4. Every time I think we as a community are past the old "run x times a game and you win" and "run to set up play action" tropes, I come back to see replies like the ones in here and lose my faith all over again. The teams that make the playoffs are more likely to be teams that run a lot not because running gets you to the playoffs, but because winning does, and when a team is really good, they tend to run a lot more in the 2nd half to kill the clock and secure a win. Most of the time these teams are getting leads by passing, and then just sitting on the ball and not letting the other team g
  5. more along the lines of, I'm a stats/analytics nerd, and I already had a spreadsheet that I made earlier this year ranking QBs going into 2020 and distinctly remembered Brees being higher than Ryan, and just wanted to correct what I perceived to be a mistake. 👍🏻
  6. I was literally just looking on PFR, not regurgitating anything.
  7. so you're projecting based on the end of 2018 despite the fact that Brees was still the better QB in 2019. Weird.
  8. I'm sorry but if a dude is so good through 3/4ths of the season that his subpar play for the other 1/4 still isn't enough to make his numbers look worse than another guy, that first guy is still the better player.
  9. I'm genuinely not sure what point you're trying to make. You're looking at the latter half of 2018 as if 2019 didn't happen...but 2019 happened and Drew put up 7.88 YPA to Matt's 7.25, more TDs despite only throwing 378 passes to Matt's 616, and even adjusting for volume, threw INTs at a lower rate than Matt. I just don't get why it's so hard to accept that Drew is straight up the better QB, even if his arm isn't what it used to be.
  10. Then how does he still consistently put up higher YPA each year than Matt? 2016 is literally the only season Matt has ever had a higher YPA than Brees.
  11. Did Drew Brees suddenly stop existing? I love Matt but he's still the clear cut 2nd best QB in the division. Brees threw 27 TDs and only 4 INTs in 2019. Completion percentage 8.1 points higher than Matt's. 0.7 higher Yds/Att. Brees is still the best QB in the NFCS, but Matt is pretty clearly the 2nd best going into the 2020 season.
  12. Except for the fact that any time he has been targeted deep, he's caught those passes at an above average rate and generated an above average amount of yards relative to aDoT
  13. Player execution only trumps coaching when coaching isn't good enough to overcome player execution being anything other than perfect.
  14. the articles you posted were opinion pieces by other biased falcons fans
  15. so because another biased Falcons fan who wants to believe that every Falcon is going to end up reaching their ceiling said he was a matchup nightmare, it makes it true? 😶
  16. all I'm getting from this is that Gage is the best of a terrible situation.
  17. I never said Matt was perfect but you're acting like he was somehow going out of his way to be worse when targeting Gage than he was for everyone else when it's much more likely that Gage just wasn't getting open enough and Matt was trying to force him the ball despite him being covered and it just looked bad because of that.
  18. So you're choosing to blame the consistently excellent former MVP QB over the scrubby 2nd year receiver with zero history of production. Weird.
  19. I mean yeah, it's a trend, not a hard and fast rule, but regardless maybe Matt was throwing Gage "into coverage" because he wasn't getting open also "less than a yard down" PER PASS ATTEMPT is still a gigantic deal.
  20. considering Zaccheaus was a RB early in his Virginia career and played a ton in the slot, I see no reason why he wouldn't have the versatility to play in the slot in the NFL.
