Team needs to rebuild. Hats off to them for fighting to the last minute against the 4th worst team in the league I guess?

Man didn't pick up a football for 2 weeks and you expect him to be prime Brady?

Not me, lol. He's exactly what I thought he would be, and the inevitable injury hasn't even happened yet.

Yeah, but also look at the other 3.5 seasons since his Super Bowl year. Odds he lasts the season producing as he did in those first 8 games of 2018 are minimal IMO, especially after logging multiple significant injuries since then. FWIW, schedule was pretty weak for those 8 games. Considering that they got Baltimore just before they switched to Lamar, the best team they played was probably the Cowboys in Week 1?

IMO, if he stays healthy, Cam is probably the 25-30th best QB at best. I think Stidham can do that too, without eating into next year's cap. And he has higher upside for the future.


Like, :lol:, this was your take. Did you watch the KC game? How can you even try to take a victory lap :lol:

We just need a WR.

Throw everything and the kitchen sink for Julio Jones.

Harry is a complete bust, dude got cement feet.

Julio has a monster cap hit for Atlanta if he’s traded, IIRC.

I’d give Harry more time as well, he’s shown flashes this season, and he’s an incredible run blocker.

Dude, literally nothing inaccurate about what I said in that post. Our offense has been trash, while playing against trashy defenses.

Also... pretty sure it was the Cam stans taking victory laps after the Seahawks game (a loss, no less). Dude couldn't hit the ocean from further than 50 feet away, and won't hold up to this usage in the running game. I don't see the point of him.

Our offense is averaging 19 points a game, and Cam just completely **** the bed vs a terrible Broncos team today. McDaniels had to draw up multiple passing plays from a WR in the fourth quarter. Settle dowwwwwwwn.

But since you asked, here's 25: Wilson, Mahomes, Lamar, Watson, Brees, Brady, Big Ben, Tannehill, Prescott, Murray, Rodgers, Ryan, Minshew, Garoppolo, Brady, Herbert, Burrow, Stafford, Carr, Allen, Fitzpatrick, Bridgewater, Wentz, Foles, Mayfield.

I'd take Cam over Stafford, Wentz, Mayfield, Fitz, situationally Tannehill (great game manager), and I'd place him in the same tier as Murray/Carr/Garropolo.

I miss Brady's competitive fire, and his subtle intensity. But he spoiled us.

I obviously don't agree, but I really don't agree with putting him on the Murray, Jimmy G level, or above Tannehill.

Not a stan but always gave him a chance. :banghead:

I do admit, my expectations for sports this year has been nonexistent. So........yeah I have zero emotions at times about this stuff this year lol.

Celtics are looking like the best Boston team at the moment. Never got the complaining about the Celtics, I thought they did pretty damn good for a pandemic bubble with Hayward out most of the time and Kemba likely not 100% either.
