Because the media says it, it must be true. I've watched plenty of Seattle games over the past few years and their WR corps has been extremely underrated for a while now - especially when Tate was still there. They don't have a super flashy guy like Megatron, Julio Jones, AJ Green, Dez Bryant, etc., but what they do have is a bunch of really solid guys. They all are capable of big plays, have reliable hands, attack the ball, decent-to-good run blockers and don't stop trying to get open even after done with their routes. They ALL seemingly run the scramble drill to perfection as well, which is huge with a mobile QB. Don't believe the hype, they've had several quality #2 level guys there, and Tate is a borderline/low end #1. Seattle fans and the media spout that BS as a means to build Wilson up. A true shitty WR corps is what we've got right now, what we've had, what the Jets have had, what the Raiders have had, etc.
3rd in rushing yards, 1st in rushing TDs, and 1st in YPC And yeah, Cam was the main reason for that - especially the TDs. The read option and his scrambles/designed runs heavily inflated everything, and we seemed to give 0 fugs about his health in the redzone. Once we were within the opponent's 20 then a Cam Newton rushing touchdown was probably right around the corner. The running game wasn't anything special until the last half of the season or so when we started running the read option like crazy. Stew and Deangelo were ineffective early and often the first part of that season.
Some Falcons fan posted a picture of Paul Worrilow's scrub ass saying he was better in response to the Luke pic Lmao. The bad part is you can't tell if he's joking or not, because some of them homers extremely, extremely overrate the fug out that guy.
Holy poo, Matt Ryan is not an elite QB. He's not even a consensus top 10 QB. Good QB? Absolutely. There's nothing about him that's amazing, but he's decent to good at a lot of things... he can slice a defense up if you let him, but at the same time he has his own share of flaws. He's very inconsistent in sensing pressure - downright oblivious at times, if you rattle him then a lot of times he'll beat himself, he's damn near useless if the line breaks down and defenders get in his face, and his arm strength is mediocre at best. Not to mention he seems like a huge pussy when it comes to contact. Seen him avoid going after fumbled balls that he could've recovered, gave up on trying to stop pick 6's he could've stopped, and sliding mere feet away from the endzone when the team was down and it was 3rd/4th down. If Manning continues to play like he did towards the end of last year then there's really only 3 elite ones in the league right now unless someone steps up to join. Those 3 would be Rodgers, Brees, and Brady.
Better yet, can we once and for all retire the dumbass caring about other people preferring to call him Philly? It's his fuging nickname. His middle name is Phillip and he's from Philadelphia, home of the Philly Cheesesteak. His twitter handle is phillybrown, he introduced himself as Philly, the coaches and teammates call him Philly. One blown out of proportion comment in passing that he said one time months ago to the media, who are supposed to be professional anyways, doesn't mean "OMG guys he hates the name Philly! We shouldn't call him that!" you sensitive PC mother fugers. This has to be the most annoying thing that's constantly brought up on this forum.
