will peyton manning live long enough to see his team go one and done this january?
he Autumn Wind is a pirate
Blustering in from sea,
With a rollicking song, he sweeps along,
His face is weather beaten.
He wears a hooded sash,
With a silver hat about his head,
And a bristling black mustache.
He growls as he storms the country,
A villain big and bold.
And the trees all shake and quiver and quake,
As he robs them of their gold.
The Autumn Wind is a raider,
Pillaging just for fun.
He'll knock you 'round and upside down,
And laugh when he's conquered and won.

It matters that you're professional in the way you talk to reporters.
It matters that you give credit to others — coaches, teammates, mentors.
It matters that you don't give up in a bad game and keep fighting, no matter the odds.
It matters that you take time to write notes to fans and sign autographs — even after crushing defeats.
It matters that you know the difference between being embarrassed by your team's performance and just not being the best team on the field that day.
And it matters that you meticulously prepare to play the game ... and encourage everyone around you to do the same.
I doubt you take stock in what those analysts say about your legacy (no doubt a trait your father has bestowed upon you and your brothers), but I want you to know that this neckbeard with two monitors (who already recognize you're different from the others) believes your legacy has never been stronger.
And I'm confident thousands of others agree with me.
The world is cheering for you PeyPey.
We love you.

I'll take our chances.
Philly since they last met: 3-2, outscoring opponents 126-91(average outcome 25-18), and a +5 TO differential despite Bradford.
Dallas since they last met: 0-5, outscored 135-86 (average outcome 27-17), and -6 TO differential.
Need I remind you the last time they played in Jerry World? Or how about the last 5 times they played in Dallas?
Eagles are 4-1 in Dallas and the only loss came in a disastrous 2012 season (which was only 38-33). Combined scores of Eagles: 140, Cowboys: 104, average score of 28-21, PHI.
Your guys can't get it done at home against the Iggles. Not in half a decade, and definitely not this year.

he's insane, but it's the kind of insane that doesn't affect the team because reggie runs everything
My favorite was the one time I actually started as Bulbasaur and taught it Leech Seed and Toxic. I found out the fun way that they run the same damage calculator, so Toxic doubles Leech Seed damage/recovery, and Leech Seed doubles the poison damage.
To anything think that Carr doesn't learn, look at this video. This was the week after he fucked up his thumb trying to stiff arm a blood thirsty nigger.
He learned from that and the moment he say he was going to be run down, he just stepped out of bounds as opposed to try and do something to get extra yards.
Yeah I've just been really busy as of late with a lot of stuff

Guys I'm looking to broaden my horizons, what is the comfiest board on 4chan?
Basically this when it comes to personal, Mark Davis still has the final say, but he's going to defer to people who know what the fuck their doing. And since Reggie has been hitting all the right notes, there's no reason to fuck with it.

he traded mccoy because the dude was overpaid, if you don't believe me look at his stats in rex ryans run happy offense
that being said chip kelly is an idiot, and he's just now realizing his gimicky offense that worked so well in college does not fly in the NFL. it forces his mediocre defense to be on the field waaaay to long, and oh yea badford is still bad
I'd like to think that any /pol/ baiting will subside and /his/ will turn into a cozy place. Right now it doesn't look bad at all.

If we're discussing Gen III and earlier, then of course I'm going to pick my favorite in terms of look and typing. I didn't care about stats and all that noise until much, much later.

Yeah because he checksdown wide open receivers like Gronk who grabs like 10 yards and getting covered by safeties because teams the Pats play have garbage secondaries except the Jets

Yeah I know yards after catch
Do you see half the throws he throws to Gronk
Gronk blocks because Brady can't throw the ball on the money to Amendola or Edelman so Gronk or Lewis breaks off 10 or so yards and he nails them for easy TDs
literally every game
Is chicken parm the most beloved/popular NFL player of all time?
>mfw week 16 Steelers Ravens game will be moved from primetime
>Brady can't throw the ball on the money to Amendola or Edelman
is that why they have nearly half his touchdowns and a third of his yardage? good 2 know
i need something new desu i'm bored af
it's a graphic novel you weeb
No HoF tier TEs who can both block and then run a route so well
Except his top two receivers are a TE and a RB
If this was Alex Smith we'd all be saying >checkdown babby
Sorry but it's true Brady is over rated as fuck and Bellichick and Gronk are the real core of the Pats franchise at this point
The only time Brady has had MVP level years is when he had MVP level talent to siphon their labors into his fruits like with Moss and that stacked ass line in 07
Get over it pats babies everyone knows your team is so overhyped
Marino wasn't that popular.
Peyton Manning has a huge following of Peyton Manning fans. Once he left the Colts, they were one of the least popular NFL teams and they still are. The Broncos were like middle of the pack in popularity every year in polls, and with Peyton they've never been out of the top 5.

designated reads in which they're being covered the entire time vs Gronk blocking and running a route with no one covering him
Sorry but Gronkowski is probably the most deadly offensive player in the NFL right now. The simple fact that on any given down he can defend his QB well enough then break off for a 9 yard pick ups is ridiculous
his second best receiver is literally a receiver who's second in the league in TDs you mouthbreather
>The only time Brady has had MVP level years is when he had MVP level talent to siphon their labors into his fruits like with Moss and that stacked ass line in 07
so what happened in 2010 when y'know, he won it unanimously without moss? was the return of deion branch the spark he needed? or in 2013 when he received a vote despite dragging literal dogshit to the AFCCG?
people see him on tv and think "he must be just like you and i" cuz of his dopey accent
hahaha you literally watched that td against the jets in some highlight package and think thats what happens every play
stats have proven you wrong. its over, unless you think every catch gronk makes is a result of no one covering him jesus christ
Umm he did awful 2013, Belichick's coaching attests to the Pats greatness more than brady. Seriously 2013 Brady had like an 85 rating and was mediocre as fuck at all times.
His top two receivers are a RB and a TE, explain that shit on how he's not a checkdown baby
Sure he can find a touchdown because everybody on the offense is pretty damn good and no secondary they've played can actually cover 4 or 5 players at once
You niggers delusional as fuck
>His top two receivers are a RB and a TE, explain that shit on how he's not a checkdown baby
I literally just did>>63317515
how the fuck do you average more yards IN THE AIR on checkdowns than matt ryan does to julio jones my god you're retarded
>this entire post
i always forget how terrible you are until you start talking about football
anyway i've had my fill, so you can stop because i don't think anyone else responds to your weird alternate realityposting
Carr may very well be a top 5 QB now, but the talk about him being a legit MVP candidate is ridiculous. Unless he somehow can beat the Broncos on the road or get the Raiders to 12 wins or something he'll be completely ignored for MVP voting.
Sorry I was account for last weeks stats when Lewis was his number 2
Seriously 72 of his 199 throws are checkdowns
you niggers are delusional, just stop
Could be super, super simple. Clear control + any part of the body touching the ground in bounds.
But no, the NFL needs a ridiculous "two feet and a football motion and submit a recipe for a cherry pie to Good Housekeeping" rule.
>doubting the new raiders
I don't see it desu steeler fans

We could lose all three and still make the playoffs at the rate the division is going.
Question for Patsfags (but others feel free to weigh in as well). Would you rather have 07 Moss or current Gronk on your team?
It's close but I'd go with Gronk. Moss would obviously get more raw yards and TDs and having an elite deep threat would add a new dimension to the offense but Gronk just feels more unstoppable than Moss. As in, with the right personnel, game plan and execution it was possible to limit Moss' effectiveness but when watching Gronk I just get a feeling that you could focus your entire game plan around stopping him, double team him at every snap and he'd still turn 6 targets into 85 yards and a TD. Plus he's also a great blocker which is invaluable
As dominant as Gronk is, you have to take one of the top 2 or 3 WRs of all-time. Moss's presence impacted every single area of the field.
With Gronk you can attack the middle of the field, with Moss you can attack the entire field.
>lower yac as a percentage of total yards
Not that impressive when Rodgers and Brees are 4th and 7th in YAC% but cool stat cherrypicking
> team is absolute dumpster fire
> fire OC
just got done watching Gundam Wing on youtube. Probably watch Endless Waltz today
>Reading a picture book who's target demographic is for 6 year olds.
Be prepared for more grunt exploding.
To be elite you need to throw 5,000 yards, 50 TDs, 0 INTs, with no weapons, a shitty defense, a failed head coach, and for your receivers to catch passes while standing still, and for them to catch TDs while already in the endzone.
farfetch'd with his leek fucking shit up

>"Considering the length and breadth of Brady's career, it's well past time to acknowledge that he has surpassed Joe Montana and Johnny Unitas as the greatest quarterback ever to suit up.
When did this meme get so much steam ?
Yeah,he is playing great at 38.
It's not like Manning had the best season ever by anyone at age 37,right senpai ?
It really helps when you're in the weakest division after the AFC south and you're a notorious stat padder on a team that's known for running up the score.
Just like they did against the jaguars this year.
Passing records are made to be broken especially as the NFL continues to cater to offense and casuals.
No one ever thought Marino's yards record would get touched and it's been shattered repeatedly.
You are now aware that this is the only remaining draft pick of Al Davis
This is also his first career touchdown
>regular season records
Records against basically meme teams
If it's understood you make it to the postseason every year, then you should be judged by how you play against the big boys.
>tfw Colts fan
If we feel this bad, Pats fans are going to be on fucking suicide watch when Brady retires
is this the most depressing game ever played?
>AFC championship game
>Dolphins beat Jest 14-0
>Jest QB went 15/37 for 103 yards, 0 TD and 5 INT
>Dolphins QB went 9/21 for 87 yards, 0 TD and 3 INT
>4 fumbles in the game
>Jest 2.6 YPC
>Dolphins 3.4 YPC
So you're not even going to try and say they weren't stat padding and running up the score.
Even Payton had the decency to leave the game the moment he got the single season TD record.
Why is it "decent" for an organization who's sole purpose it is to make money to purposefully become less entertaining for those who are watching. You call it stat-padding, I call it being entertaining.
"Wahhhh! Why do they keep scoring! It should be against the rules to score when you're already winning!"
Listen, kid. Just because you got a trophy for riding the bench to eighth place is your six-team soccer league last year doesn't mean we have to pussify professional sports to spare your feelings. If your team didn't want to get BTFO so hard, maybe they should have made a defensive stop or two.
The more you act like assholes, the more likely someone is going to take a shot at you.
If you're going to argue that running up the score is entertaining. I could argue that fragrant late hits with the intent to injure are much more entertaining.
If Brady can't take a light hit to the knee, how's he going to take being pile driven into the turf?
Coltsbro we share a division with the Dolphins. We know what's waiting for us when our GOAT QB retires. It's all about enjoying the ride as hard as we possibly can right now because we were shit before and we'll be shit again someday.
because "running up the score" doesn't affect anyone
intentionally hurting someone will result in injuries, which means less talented people will have to fill in, which means watching will be less entertaining
>getting so upset that you are a shit defender that you start taking cheapshots instead of playing better
Haha, I get it, you're one of those "niggers" I always hear about! How much was your welfare check this week?
"Running up the score" is a concept that shouldn't exist in professional fucking sports. This is a billion dollar industry. We all pay these fucks to win and win big.
If my team ever let off the gas late in a game and ended up losing, I'd be fucking pissed. You don't want to get btfo by someone who is paid to score points? Then fucking do what you are paid to do and stop it.
Please, even anything choking a big lead leads to even more coverage and hype. Just for the other team. Look at how Eli Manning went from a nobody who threw a bitch fit about being drafted by San Diego, to a HoF candidate after beating the Patriots in the Superb Owl in one of the greatest upsets in modern sports history, or chokes if you're on the Patriots side.
Look at it from a smart point of view since you're clearly not bright. You want to end the game as quickly as possible to have your team be less beat up and minimize the risk of injuries.
>"running up the score is bad!Brady should sit down when they're up by 14 tbqh! Why am I a fan of a shit team?"
Did you watch the Pats-Bills game? Even with a sizeable lead, the Bills nearly came back. If you're too much of a pussy to deal with professional players doing their jobs maybe you should stick to soccer bruh.
Playing the game the way its supposed to be played will always carry a risk and you can't fault them for playing 100%. That is acceptable, otherwise you wouldn't have professional sports
>We have sizeable lead, should we start to work on running out the clock by focusing on hard hitting runs, or continue to be pass happy and risk going 3 and out and taking only 30 seconds off the clock?
>HMMM Let's do the pass to stat pad!
And that's how the Patriots almost shit the bed against the Foot coach.
He's so butt blasted, he had a stroke at the keyboard.
>Please, even anything choking a big lead leads to even more coverage and hype. Just for the other team
Yeah, and? That doesn't help my team win or reward the dollars that everyone puts in to them through revenue or ticket sales or anything else.
Again these faggots are PAID TO DO THEIR JOBS AND WIN. This isn't college or high school where kids are just playing for the school or to have a good time.
You want to minimize risk, why don't you have all the professional athletes go at half speed. We could have them all wear body armor too. Lets have them play on fields made of jello so that they don't hurt themselves.
Its one thing to say to say that they should go 100% the whole game, its quite another to let players intentionally try to hurt each other for sport.
Plus the original arguement was that it's not "sporting" to "run up the score." Its god damn professional football. Sack up.
You now realize that all but 2 attempts this season by NE to "run it out" have resulted in 3-and-outs. Basically, you're an idiot.
>It's better to waste 1:30 instead of wasting 8:00 and accidentally scoring because that way nobody's feelings are hurt
Oh well it's unfortunate the patriots are starting rookies and who's at interior line (and now at lt or rt too) and the bills have a top defensive line. Makes running out the clock a little more complicated.
Patriots rarely go 3 and out though, and their running backs are unlikely to get a 1st down running the ball, they can easily get a 4 or 5 minute drive from throwing low risk passes, even if they don't score a TD.
>If Cam's so good, why isn't he putting up elite numbers?
>This isn't college or high school where kids are just playing for the school or to have a good time.
Go into high school or college game and say that. I expect someone to punch you out, especially if it's an SEC game.
It shows they're weak there since the Pats run game is non existent. (They didn't even bother to run the ball against the fishcakes.)
tbqh i feel like taking your foot off the gas and not even playing, not respecting your opponent to make any kind of comeback with half a quarter left to go and just punting it away is a lot more disrespectful than continuing to play to your ability
>you suck so bad i will literally just give you the ball back constantly because you're too trash to do something about it
it's the same reason teams should be going for it on 4th down in these situations instead of just taking free points with a 30 yard FG or whatever, it gives the other team a chance to stop it
Are you certifiably insane? Bills have elite d line. Patriots have who's at o line and a non starting quality starting RB. I bet if green bay's d line were 4 anorexic girls you'd still tell Peyton to pass the ball. Y'all all hilarious with your fandom; how can root for a team as opposed to a an individual when you support tactics that would make the team more likely to lose?
so what is your point? in the south, people take high school games seriously and want them to dominate
so, for some reason, we shouldn't take PROFESSIONAL games seriously and teams shouldn't try to do their fucking jobs and constantly score?
>they should run the ball
>they have no run game
>they can't pass because that would make me sad
Oh I get it, brady handing the ball to the defense every drive is the only way your team can keep up.
The arguement isn't about the effectiveness of NE's run game, it's whether professional football players who are paid millions of dollars to entertain their fans by playing the best football they can should purposefully not play 100%.
The whole point is to win the Owl. Running up the score in a regular season game is meaningless unless you're looking to stat pad, especially if you choke when it matters. Look at Broncos last year and the 18-1 Patriots.
The point is you said they play for fun. I gave a counter point that blows up your central assertion. Ergo you have no credibility now.
all about perspective, no reason to not run the score up unless like the 4th quarter, then it is senseless risks. Into the 3rd ya, why risk not putting the game away.
Only time you don't is if it is a week 17, playoffs spot already locked gameoor if you have a good lead in the 4th, than just run the clock off, scoring and getting them the ball back is counter productive then
90% of kids in high schools and colleges around the country don't play for money, they play for school pride and to have a good time competing. these kids will never make a professional league. this is where respect matters.

you're a fucking idiot

Why would the game evolve to a more offensive oriented position. It wasn't some arbitrary decision. Because that is what is more popular.
Just because football in the past was the way it was, doesn't mean that football today should be stuck like that.
