SNF: Steelers @ Patriots

ChaChing : 9/8/2019 8:58 pm
Apparently the Pats have 1000 WRs, even b4 AB suits up next week

It's early but all Pats thru 1 qtr as they are marching down the field w/ a 7-0 lead already
Brady 42 going on 25

Amazing player. Pats carving up Pittsburgh as usual.
Fn crazy to me. I was in college in Boston in 2001  
ChaChing : 9/8/2019 9:04 pm : link
Had just caught a local news channel special called "Loserville" where they took an extra 30 min after the regular news to lament how shitty all their 4 major teams were

Since then all of them have won AT LEAST 1 ring. And the Pats possibly the greatest dynasty of all time (certainly in the NFL), Sox perennial contenders more or less...GOD MFing DAMNIT

Only plus is 18-1 and that other one...lol
Was surprised to see how much Pit struggles in NE  
ChaChing : 9/8/2019 9:14 pm : link
0-5 w/ Ben apparently. I'd have assumed Pats have won more (go figure) but still that wasn't expected
Just ridiculous how well coached this team is and has been.  
trueblueinpw : 9/8/2019 9:15 pm : link
They just don’t ever beat themselves, they do everything right, they exploit every weakness of their opponents. They’re just so freaking well coached. Hoodie’s obviously the NFL GOAT coach. At what point do we say GOAT coach of any sport ever?
Yeah but

he's just a "system qb". Lol. Say what you will but an incredible athlete and career. And still going strong

IMO regardless of labels, BB did develop him perfectly, and continues to put him in the best positions to succeed. As much as he is plenty great, would he have been THIS guy without BB? If he was on David Carr's Houston Texans would we even know his name? Or even if Bledsoe just gets hurt a little later and they don't make the playoffs - or just lose b4 the SB...is he inherently the NE starter next yr? Also what does it mean that Matt Cassell has an 11-5 yr, or Jacoby Brissett succeeds?

IMO it's way more BB. In fact, if David Carr was drafted by NE how does his career story change? I mean, he was a WAY bigger prospect than TB fwiw (as was Eli among many others)...
Other than Giants-Cowboys there isn't a matchup I'm more sick of

As much as we've seen QBs hit any / all available targets...

today NE / TB is otherworldly. Edelman, Gordon, Meyers, Dorsett...doesn't matter who's there, same result different year
Tomlin  
Sammo85 : 9/8/2019 9:32 pm : link
is such a mediocre head coach. Think this is going to be his firing year finally now.
Are Steelers fans going to give Big Ben as much crap  
GiantSteps : 9/8/2019 9:33 pm : link
as Giants fans (unduly) give Eli? Because Ben's not looking so hot tonight, so it's obviously all his fault.
so far one sided  
blueberry : 9/8/2019 9:34 pm : link
reminds me of our game -Pitt defense looks outclassed -let's see if they can turn the tide at all
Pats could easily be 9-0  
Oscar : 9/8/2019 9:36 pm : link
Heading into their bye.
I think this is the only

time in NFL history where two teams with 6 SB titles each face each other.
Sorry but I disagree  
redwhiteandbigblue : 9/8/2019 9:40 pm : link
with the "Bill Bellechick" explanation for Brady's career. Sure BB has Alot to do with the TEAM being successful and the players that surround him, but BB does not call the offensive plays and BB has little to do with his athletic conditioning and football smarts. It's ok to be a giant fan and give Tom Brady a little credit. Really.

Come on...Ben has been a top QB as recently as last year, even if you don't love him. Eli, nothing much since 2011, weak OL / team or not
It is utterly insane that an NFL team  
Mr. Bungle : 9/8/2019 9:46 pm : link
in the salary cap era has been great for 19 straight years.

Belichick is the greatest American pro sports coach of all time. I don't see how it's debatable.

I assume you mean my post, but I didn't downplay TB's greatness, esp on that level. No HC has much to do with conditioning, so what? Just because BB is masterful at running a team doesn't mean it's some dig at TB (esp when I said how great he is even so)

Fact is, if he didn't have so much early success, would we even know him as we do? And while that's a lot his own work keeping in shape etc, it's still probably more BB...esp the 1st 3 rings

And the fact he's had Cassel have as good a season for a team (randomly not making the playoffs...so would they have won that yr?)...seriously. That guy has done SHIT anywhere else...that is not something that can be ignored

Brady is great. But I'd bet my left nut on BB if I had to pick one or the other. It's not even close really
And I admit, BB has had a ton of great circumstances too...  
ChaChing : 9/8/2019 9:49 pm : link
obv CLE didn't work out, NYJ...

So we might give the nod to Kraft at least knowing enough to stay out of it once things started rolling...if that wasn't his plan early on

Still, BB over TB. No doubt, not much of a decision for me
Good thing I've got JJSS in FF

and playing against NE D...........
One amazing consistant team

In this era..incredible. NE

Giants were very fortunate to have lil bill at DC and that coaching staff of the 80s

Not directed at your post or any in particular. I just feel as a "Football Fan" so many people seem to be reluctant to give credit to players on other teams, especially the players on successful franchises. I give credit where credit is due regardless if they are Giants players or not. What Tom Brady has accomplished in his career and his longevity in the sport playing at a high level is truly remarkable.
I will say it again

Pittsburgh biggest loss this offseason will prove to be Munchak.
No worries, even if it was  
ChaChing : 9/8/2019 10:08 pm : link
discussion is fine. And agreed, TB is amazing. I don't want to blow him any more than to say I wish I was him and the chicks have to dig him lol

But we wouldn't know his name esp the way his career started as 199 pick etc, if BB hadn't made esp that first yr happen, if not the many early years

No doubt BB's success is tied to having TB as well, but chicken or egg? It's BB no doubt
Greydick doesn't look so good tonight

to Dorsett for a TD and 27-3 lead.
Funny, they were talking about it b4...and it's clearly good strategy  
ChaChing : 9/8/2019 10:22 pm : link
but IMO when they blow coaches for 'taking away the number 1 option' I kinda wonder. Isn't that the damn job as a coach? I mean, on occasion you let the #1 do whatever but shut out the rest...but otherwise isn't the appropriate strategy to take away option 1, then 2, then as many as there are? Make the O make a decision first and foremost (like stopping the ball on D in basketball), then make him go to the NEXT / lesser option...classic 'make someone else beat you'

I say that & realize sometimes it's just a talent issue, but I don't care the sport, isn't that almost a fundamental strategy? As a sports fan, I've seen too many Ds do something else, but I can't for the life of me figure it out strategically. I know sometimes it's just shitty defensive IQ, but I don't get it
I asked about it earlier I think for a different game...  
ChaChing : 9/8/2019 10:25 pm : link
but there's another pick play that this time gets called...while the one I mentioned in the prior game (CLE-TEN?) was a blatant wipeout / block but completely uncalled and even complimented by the announcers

Really silly how inconsistent that call is. And IMO most teams should be using it more if that's how they call it...(tho I'm well aware there's plenty of bias calls like that one...they'd never miss it for NE! If it were us vs DAL today, they'd be just as picky I'm sure)
How the fuck are any of you watching this shit?

Only difference is one was going up against Dan Prescott and one was going against the GOAT.
