Your right , personally i think wentz isnt much better than a sverage qb , dallas will be hit hard too unless they let elliot test the market 

 

So I think Wentz has been paid his second contract already. But I’m not sold on him as a starter for a 16 game season. 

Zeke is the engine that makes Dallas run tips on rb yardage since 2016.

Appreciate the link. It's a good little article, but is only rooted in wins and losses which is rather skewed considering it doesn't take into account the putrid defenses I mentioned earlier.

There are only 9 games in those 5 years mentioned (2007, 2012, 2014-2016) where I feel the defense did enough to win (held the opponent to 25 points or less) when taking into the account the caliber of our offense, and it came down to our offense not getting it done. With the offensive talent we've had those years, if we couldn't score 3 TD's and 2 FG's (27 points) per game with the defense not allowing more than 25 points, we honestly deserved to lose.

Furthermore, our record in 1-score games those years shows even though our offense scored higher than their season's average ppg, our defense also gave up more than their season's average ppg. The offense was largely getting it done, satellite back or not, the defense just was not. Only in 2016 did our defense hold opponents to fewer points in 1-score games than they allowed for the season and our offense didn't score higher than their season average:

  • 2007: 2-4 record
    • defense gave up 25.5 ppg (1.2 ppg higher than their 2007 average)
    • offense scored 23.8 ppg (0.1 ppg higher than their 2007 average)
  • 2012: 4-5 record
    • defense gave up 31.5 pgg (3.1 ppg higher than their 2012 average)
    • offense scored 31.0 ppg (2.2 ppg higher than their 2012 average)
  • 2014: 3-5 record
    • defense gave up 28.9 ppg (2.4 ppg higher than their 2014 average)
    • offense scored 28.4 ppg (3.3 ppg higher than their 2014 average)
  • 2015: 4-5 record
    • defense gave up 30.0 ppg (0.2 ppg higher than their 2015 average)
    • offense scored 28.8 ppg (3.3 ppg higher than their 2015 average)
  • 2016: 5-7 record
    • defense gave up 28.1 ppg (0.3 ppg lower than their 2016 average)
    • offense scored 27.8 ppg (1.5 ppg lower than their 2016 average)

yes and it's great because our guys aren't overpaid but because they are better than any trio listed:

GB has no established RB

SEA no WR

MIN no QB

PHI no RB

Much appreciated, friend! And I know, sometimes I feel bad my replies are as long-winded as they are; mostly when 3-4 people quote them right after each other and it's like "Whoops! Now I'm taking up nearly all of this page..." :ninja:

The bad thing is, that one is on the "short" side compared to some of my other posts I've made. Also, I REALLY like bullet points if you can't tell. :lol:

We have the #1 offense in the NFL bar NONE! What we do with that offense is anyone's guess.

Quite possibly the best post of the year.  

Yes, it’s on the coaches.  The talent is there to average 35 ppg

Misleading at best.

Kind of...but it’s all manipulation.  We are #1 by a wide margin next year at 55 million for just Ryan, Julio, Free.  We are #1 in 2021 & 2022. Doesn’t mean we will be #1 by the time 2021 comes around though

I doubt Free is still here by then but yeah Julio’s new deal gonna change that anyway.
