I'm sure playing in New England's system makes his numbers look better than they would on an average team but he's obviously excellent.
It depends on who is doing the targeting, no? Larry Fitzgerald is on a worse team than he was five years ago; it doesn't seem to have helped.
Hm. Fitzgerald has two 100-catch seasons, both were with Boldin (and not coincidentally Warner). "Numbers" also include touchdowns; Gronkowski had as many as Kansas City's entire offense last year.
Sharpe didn't have Brandon Weeden or Brady Quinn throwing to him either.
Edit: As for Gonzalez, his worst year as a Chief also came with Kennison as their top WR (and Holmes catching 70 passes).
i think it's a waste to draft another safety who isn't 6'4+.
There are no safeties in the league that are 6'4"+. If you are that big they make you a LB when you're in college or high school.
Best team in the NFL so far? Has to be the Pats, right?
I don't think so. The defense is too uneven. They haven't shown they can consistently get pass rush or that their defensive backs can covered wideouts. nt to mention their base set linebackers particularly Spike or Hightower can cover tight ends or running backs in space.
Defense? The Pats have only allowed 244 points. 10 teams in the AFC have allowed more. and 9 in the NFC.
All of the other best teams have allowed many fewer.
And _have_ the 49ers or Texans played a tougher schedule?
Thankfully we have a playoff to sort this all out.
Yes, where a mediocre team like the 2011 Giants can get hot, get lucky and win the Super Bowl. Wheeee, what sorting we have done.
Better than a conference creating the myth that they're the best conference year in and year out and fool people into believing that they deserve a spot in the national championship game.
And yet, they are +163 in point differential. With the next two teams +121 (San Fran) and +116 (Houston). That is a big gap. I don't claim that the schedules are even or anything, or that this works as well as for MLB, but it does indicate something

I have little doubt last years Giants team was superior to last years Pats team. 2008 is a different story.
Also, the Pats are a team that doesn't really let up when the game is over. Very few teams would play Tom Brady with 25 point leads in the fourth quarter to run up the score.
They beat the Pats twice. That is a pretty convincing argument to me, they were a better team. I guess you can make the case they were lucky, or that they matchup well... but I'll take the simpler explanation.
The Giants went 9-7 in the regular season, allowing more points than they scored. I'll take the 13-3 club as the better team, H-to-H results be damned.
I don't think it's quite that cut and dried. Strength of schedule could be wildly different.
SoS is not insignicant (and the Giants sked was tougher), but it ain't capable of making up this Points Scored-Points Allowed Difference:
NE 513-342 +171
NYG 394-400 -6
And yet it's still the worst team to win the Super Bowl. Seven losses is seven losses.
I think you have to include the playoffs when determining how good a football team is. The Giants record last year looks better as 13-7.
I think the second game against the Redskins meant absolutely nothing to them and they pretty much tanked it.
And their schedule now includes two games against Green Bay, Niners and Patriots. In their games against the "elites" they're now 4-3 with a point differential of -3, which I think puts them among the elites, if not in the upper tier of the elites.
If they can be "hot/lucky" for thirteen games, why not sixteen?
when faced with the hardest schedule in the history of football.
I doubt that's remotely close to being true.
It's almost impossible to play seven games in one season against 13-3 teams; you basically have to reach the Super Bowl (and not be a 13-3 team yourself) to do it.
The 2000 Bears' opponents were 132-99 (.571) when not playing the Bears; the 2011 Giants' opponents were 178-123 (.591) when not playing the Giants.
· Eagles route concepts do not help their receivers or their QB; Don’t see much bunch, stack release versus man coverage, high-low concepts, etc.
· Eagles run a lot of isolation one-on-one routes and expect their WRs to win on the outside, Jackson and Maclin do not win consistently versus man coverage
· Eagles kept the pass game approach very basic for Foles, Simple route concepts; like all season I have been very surprised by how uncreative, ineffective, and limited the Eagle offensive concepts are. Foles did not play particularly well but he is not being helped by the coaching
This Sunday night, "The Walking Dead" will air on both AMC and NBC.
Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher this morning shot and killed his girlfriend before going to Arrowhead Stadium and fatally shooting himself as team personnel tried to stop him, police said.
Police Capt. David Lindaman said Belcher, 25, and his girlfriend, 22, got into an argument around 7 a.m. at their home in the 5400 block of Crysler Avenue in Kansas City. Around 7:50 a.m., Lindaman said, Belcher shot his girlfriend multiple times. She was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Lindaman said Belcher’s mother, who was visiting the couple and their 3-month-old daughter, witnessed the shooting and was being interviewed by police.
Belcher left the scene on Crysler and went to the Chiefs practice facility at Arrowhead, police said.
Police were called to the stadium around 8:10 a.m. When Belcher arrived there he encountered General Manager Scott Pioli, Coach Romeo Crennel and other team personnel. Police said Chiefs staff attempted to keep Belcher from committing additional acts of violence. When police arrived, they heard a gunshot and found that Belcher had shot himself in the head.

So if this chiefd player has encephelopathy or some other brain damage the nfl is ###### right? Though come to think of it the WWE came out of the Benoit thing just fine.
When police arrived, they heard a gunshot and found that Belcher had shot himself in the head.
NFL is saying the Chiefs-Panthers game will play on Sunday.
It finally happened. Marc Sanchez benched. For Greg McLlory.
It's because Tebow is out. Now it's just less of a circus.
