    Genesis 1:3-5;

     

    "And the Lord said, "let there be Garner Minshew." Then there was Gardner Minshew.

    After that the Lord saw that Garner Minshew was good, and the Lord began to divide Gardner Minshew from the darkness. He called Gardner Minshew the Light, and the darkness he named Tom Brady. "

     I love this. So funny!

    Ramsey probably isnt going anywhere. Jags are sort of looking up with Minshew now, and Ramsey can get absolutely paid. He'll stay.

     The owner wants to keep him. That accounts for alot. I wouldn't be surprised if he stays.  

     

    Biggest problem I'm seeing with the Jags right now...that running game...non existent.

     He did have the one 69 yard run last night.

     Nice

     Nice

     He will most likely go on a hold out if they don’t trade him, he doesn’t wanna be there bribing him with money isn’t gonna work. Wants to win not lose and y’all wayyyy overhyping this man Gardner 

     Idk man, some of the passes he threw last night were absolute beauties. He's got some learning to do, but the guy has shown he can perform under pressure and has the confidence to be great.

     QB is the one position where attitude and intangibles can matter more than actual physical skills.

     

    It's what allowed Brady to become what he became. Others just have "it", whatever "it" is. And Minshew just seems to have "it".

     I know u just didn’t compare him to brady

     If my eyes could roll out the back of my head right now, I would.

     

    Some people man...some people....

    Reached tier 100 today. I really like these Fort Knight skins. I think they're my favorite. Also managed to get the Oppressor skin. That's my favorite non event skin.

    If you reached tier 100 in S7 Colton, you should try out the Ice Mantle backbling in red w/ Opressor. Looks juiced. 

     

    Heres a combo I did

     

     btw lachry..how are you getting those awesome screenshots?

    Well sure you can say it was trash advice now. Did it not make sense though? Titans defense has been playing at a high level. This week they were playing a rookie on a short week. Made sense to start them.

     On that angle, yes. However, there's something about home teams on Thursday.  The only thing that would've made me hesitate on the Titans.

    Titans D/ST tonight @ Jacksonville

     

    or

     

    Seahawks D/ST at home vs Saints.

     

     

     I'd lean towards Titans.

     

    Quote from deweydecimaled >>

    i have a sneaking suspicion taysom is going to be the guy, at least get the majority of snaps, i think the seahawks are gonna actually have a game more than people think. give sean payton a week to cook up something in the lab heisenberg style i really doubt if the saints just come out and lay an egg

     

    I sure wish i hadn't listened to such trash advice lol.  Titans D got me 1 point.

     Gardner appears to be a solid caretaker, I think anyone hoping for the usual rookie mistakes with him will be disappointed.

    I've recently had issues with my QB not pitching the ball in spread on option plays. Is this related to the non throwing QB issues?

     

    Is there a reason why we have had so many duplicated early season legend-type players (Ty Law, Herman Moore, Lawrence Taylor).

     

    Is there a reason why we can't select scheme on master type players (Master Series, Promo Masters, etc.). This is a big problem in team building.

     

    Training/Power: How does it work. And isn't is counterintuitive that when we upgrade players that we take such a large step back on something that is likely as important as team power? I Had a Tier IV 71 PR and then got an 84 Tier 1 PR and I feel like my team took a big step back. How does that make sense?

     

    And Messina. Thanks. Your efforts have been noticed and appreciated.

    Thanks Umbra for the Summary.

     

    We're still having so much of the same issue as last season. lack of variety, and scheme issues for selecting cards.  We shouldn't go through all that work and then be penalized by not having players who fit our scheme!

     

    Make all master scheme selectable. How hard is that?

    I don't understand the argument when someone says Eli's record needs to be held against him, but at the same time won't praise him for his Super Bowl wins and MVPS.

     

    IF it is a team game, then his 116-116 record (or whatever it is) shouldn't solely fall on him, just like his Super Bowl wins can't solely fall on him.  You can't have it both ways. 

    116-116 record is season long success. We're not saying he never made a single play in his career. But he was bailed out by two amazing catches in two games. That's his real claim to fame. Two plays.

     

    Outside of those two plays, he was mediocre at best throughout his career. Period.

     103.3 QB rating in the 2011 Postseason.. 300 yards per game.. they don't win that year without him.

     

    87.4 Post season rating overall.. barely behind Brady (90.5)

     The Ravens don't win the year Flacco was great either. Doesn't mean he's a hall of famer.  And Eli never won a post season game outside of those two years, in 15 years in the league.

    Apologies.

     

    I just think Warners election was the worst in HOF history.

     

    .. worse than Eli's will be.

     While I don't value MVP's or All Pros highly, Warner WAS an MVP and All Pro of the league (And deservedly so). Warner literally was THE best QB in the NFL for 3 seasons with the Greatest show, then led the Cardinals to somewhere they only ever dreamed of.  He actually had great seasons with great stats. Eli had longevity stats, never considered the best QB of the league in ANY year. Can we say he was ever even a top 5 QB in any given year?  But we could do that for Warner in those bookends.

    Warner shouldn't have got in.

     

    For 5 years, in the middle of his prime, he couldn't hold down a starting job.

     It's a fine case to be made either way. But The bookends of his career were certainly something special.  I mean. The guy brought the CARDINALS to the Super Bowl of all teams. Let that set in....

    Cunningham wasn't any less impressive.

     

    2 seasons where he could/should have been MVP. The original Mike Vick/Lamar Jackson. Changed the way the position was viewed, unlike Warner, nothing but pocket passer like 100s before him.

     

    He's essentially out due to injury and breakdown while Warner gets in? Despite Cunningham accounting for more total yardage, and more touchdowns. Terrible precedent there.

     

    Super Bowls are a team accomplishment that shouldn't factor in to an individual honor/award.

     You're acting like I'm discounting Cunningham. I'm not.  I can see a solid argument made for him as well.  Strange that he's not in more HOF conversations. 

     

    Thing is, with Warner, Cunningham, there are serious and solid arguments that can be made for them. For Eli. I see no argument other than two lucky catches.
