    I think a lot of it was Dirk’s scheme.  I don’t know that he will be great, or even worth a first round pick all said and done in Smith’s scheme, but I do think he will look better than last two years.

    I'm glad you're optimistic about McGary. I'd really like to be...but I just don't see it. Hopefully I get to eat some crow.

    He is a highly paid and highly trained professional moderator whose sole purpose in life is to moderate these boards. He never leaves. He is on call here 24/7/365. Kind of like Siri but much more intelligent, merciful and compassionate. Did I miss anything J?
    in all seriousness, you and the other mods do a great job. Thanks to all of you for what you do to make these boards better and more fun!

    Limiting factor on Pitts is how much can he learn how quickly. Ideally we want to be able to play outside, in the slot and as tightend 2. That’s a lot to absorb but if he does he will be a nightmare to prepare for

          Which NFL rookie tight ends will be most productive in 2021? My analytics-based top-five rankings
    Which NFL rookie running backs will thrive in 2021? My analytics-based top-five rankings
        Draft season might seem like a distant memory at this point, but don't forget that history was made at the tight end position this year. Kyle Pitts became the highest-picked TE in draft history when the Falcons selected him fourth overall. The former Florida star is obviously the cream of the crop, but he's certainly not the only intriguing NFL newbie at the position this season. So, just what can we expect from this crew in Year 1?
    As I did last week with rookie running backs, I've used contextualized data and my computer-vision models to project which rookie tight ends will be the most productive in 2021.
    Rank 1 Kyle Pitts Florida Atlanta Falcons Draft pick: Round 1, No. 4 overall   First, some background info to set the table, via Next Gen Stats. Last season as the Titans' offensive coordinator, Falcons head coach Arthur Smith used 12 personnel (one running back and two tight ends) on 32.7 percent of snaps, the second-highest rate in the NFL behind only Philadelphia. The Falcons used it on just 13.9 percent of snaps in 2020 (ninth-lowest rate in the NFL). So, you might expect to see Pitts and his fellow Falcons tight end, Hayden Hurst, on the field at the same time a lot. Context matters a ton here, though, because not only did the presence (and departure) of Julio Jones matter to this projection, but Pitts does not forecast to be a traditional tight end, which you know after watching all of our draft coverage. Pitts lined up wide on over 35 percent of his snaps for Florida last season, and his wingspan is ridiculous (83 3/8 inches). So, I measured something new for you in this exercise because the impact of such a massive catch radius is an interesting thing to explore with him. Pitts caught passes thrown more than four feet away from his body at the highest rate of any pass catcher (including wide receivers) from the past two draft classes in their final collegiate season. Of the pass catchers selected in the first three rounds over the past two drafts, the average catch rate on such passes was 14.8 percent (15.3% for first-rounders only). Pitts' rate? 23.5 percent! My normal draft predictor model (which doesn't include the catch radius metric) ranked Pitts as the most likely future All-Pro from the 2021 draft class. I'm glad the new stat backs that projection up even more.

    I hear you, but if you factor KC then you have to factor every other game as well. You can't cherry pic a random game as a metric and then ignore games like the first 5 when we were getting molested. 
    Yeah we got better, but the level of competition dropped significantly over the next 5 games(Minn, Det, Panthers, Denver, NO w/o Brees), as well. Last game I remember we gave up 44 points to TB.
