    Belichick destroyed their offense in the Super Bowl by taking the run away with a 6-1 defense and Goff sucks balls at play action, and now everyone does the same thing. McVay is a good football mind and motivator obviously to be a head coach that young, but he is REALLY young after all and hasn’t figured out how to adapt yet. He’s facing a lot of adversity and the team is struggling. We’ll see how he responds. Maybe he doesn’t have the whiskers to pull them out of a tailspin. He probably will eventually.
    When you get pantsed in the SB like they did most teams have a hangover year. It’s a big blow. Players still play but they lose faith sometimes, in themselves or the coach or the team. Maybe all of it. The Rams could NOT adjust in that Super Bowl. McVay was lost. I think that has a big effect.

    Also their o line played out of its mind for like 90% of last season and they suck this year. You saw the holes Gurley ran through last year? He just had free fucking lanes and a sprinter's speed to get to the edge and take it the distance.

    Yes. I heard somewhere Goff is like the worst starting QB in the league off play action and also the worst ( or one of the worst ) against man coverage this season. He has more INTs than TDs this year. Lots of yards but lots of them are garbage time.
    Obviously Goff can operate very well in a specific system and when things are going well, but when you’re talking NFL starting QBs who can’t?
    Russell Wilson plays well with a run game or without. With a decent line or without. With a great defense ( which he’s mostly had ) or a suspect one, like this year. His numbers are consistent every year, and he’s piled up more wins in his first 8 years than any QB ever. Ever.
    That’s me on my soap box for Russell Wilson. I’ve been critical of him at times, mostly because I haven’t always understood what I was watching, but he truly is great. Incredible really.
    But Lamar is the MVP.

    So moral of the story is once you lose to Pats in the SB, you are fucked for awhile.

    God damn I hate them so much.

    I agree. I’d take Dak over Wentz or Goff no question. I’d take Dak over most QBs for that matter.

    I still stand by what I said about Zeke over Dak at the start of the year. I stand by it in the sense that, to that point, Dak hadn't showed me that he was gonna lead by example and put the team on his back. He was usually efficient and didn't have a lot of turnovers (which I still partially attribute to having a good o line), but when Zeke was out the splits were pretty serious. But now he looks like the most important player on the team and they should pay him whatever

    Hey the offense that everyone told me was a gimmick when RG3 was tearing up the league in 2012 is tearing up the league in 2019. It's almost like its core concept is about forcing the defense to play in a way that heavily shifts the balance of power toward the offense.

    It's simple math. On a conventional run play the QB does nothing but hand the ball over so it's 10 players on offense against 11 players on defense. When a team regularly uses the read option the QB is actually involved in the play which turns it into an 11v11 if they keep the ball or a 10v10 if they don't.

    Because of the breakout year the pistol option based offenses had in 2012 teams have learned the optimal way to attack the mesh point on these plays. But even when executed flawlessly this doesn't really turn the play back into a 10v11. It's more like a 10.5v11.

    The key of course is that for the offense to work you need a freak at QB and a RB who is exceptionally skilled at inside runs. The thing that makes the Ravens so scary is that Jackson makes 2012 RG3 look like just a guy. He's significantly faster but more importantly the way he can juke and spin and make people miss is like something out of a sports anime. I've never seen someone stop on a dime and then accelerate to full speed in a different direction the way he does.

    I think Jackson will prove that this offense is not a gimmick and can have long term success because his vision and awareness is so much better than RG3's was. I don't see him taking a devastating hit because he always sees where the contact is coming from and protects himself. (Of course when this topic comes up it needs to be said that both devastating hits that derailed RG3's career came on passing plays)
