Watch the game tonight primarily, make it exclusivey, to watch McCaffrey (should have won the Heisman, yeah both guys were deserving). Also, those color rush uniforms, you know, always look forward to those.:rolleyes:

I didn't realize BUF @ NYG was this week. when's the last time a team started the season with two away in a row at the same stadium? has it ever happened?

I’m glad this game is on. Political programming these days isn’t good for my mental state. But this is a game that no one outside Florida and the Carolinas would be watching if it were a 1:00 Sunday game, and it shows.

I mean, the guy didn’t go after a fumble with 4 minutes left in a one possession SB game. The guy is a huge chump.
He also happens to be 2-0 against New England...

11-18-13: 19-28 (67.9%), 209 yds, 3 td, 0 int, 125.4 rating
10-1-17: 22-29 (75.9%), 316 yds, 3 td, 1 int, 130.8 rating

Total: 41-57 (71.9%), 525 yds, 6 td, 1 int, 128.2 rating, plus 15 rushes, 106 yds, 1 td

So chump, yeah, but he's been great against the Pats in his career, unfortunately.

We haven’t mastered statistical analysis of QBs, and running QBs seem to outperform their stats. I’m not convinced Cam is a bad QB. With a great team around him like he had a few years ago, he could definitely be a tougher matchup for the Pats than most others.

What Cam is decidedly not, however, is a guy who will turn a below-average team into something better than the sum of its parts. And that’s what he’s being asked to to this season.

He can thank Clete for one of those wins. Not knocking the talent but something is missing above the shoulders.

Both teams basically worthless if the first option isn’t wide open (or Mike Evans). And even then the QB is liable to miss by 5 yards.

I’m not the biggest cam fan but no qb gets less flags than him.
This isn't true.

Since 2009, Cam has drawn .23 roughing the passer calls per game, which is 9th per game. He's 10th in roughing calls per 100 attempts.

In raw numbers, only Fitzpatrick and Ryan have drawn more.

He draws like 40% more than Brady--who draws ire from fans of every other team for always getting calls.

The frequency with which both QBs are just flat out missing throws by a LOT, or throwing them out of bounds unintentionally, is just weird. And then they rear back and go for extra zip and it looks like they're giving 100% to get it to go 20 yards, and it just kinda floats there... it's jarring to see, after so long of watching game after game of Tom M-F'ing Brady vs Some Fool.

I’ve watched so much ball over the last 5 years I no longer think Belichick is smart. I now think he is the only non moron in the league.
