Yas: Keuchly 9th best player in the south

Recommended Posts

Again, until proven otherwise, Revis is the best corner in the NFL.

Ummm, no it's not. You're easily swayed by numbers but accumulating more tackles than another player doesn't mean 'superiority'. Kevin Williams had a 33 tackle season, and he was still a dominant DT that very season. Now McCoy wasn't that impactful but he was paramount to The Bucs' rushing defense in 2012, especially since Tampa lacks a linebacking core.

The list is about who are the best players in the South not about who was most important to their team.  McCoy is not the eight best player in the south this year or last year as well.  Making more tackles especially as a percentage of total opportunities has to mean you are more impactful in the run game.  I wouldn't be surprised if by next season, Star or Short are rated above him

Once again, NO. You need to stop with this absurd argumentative point. Sapp had 32 tackles in 2006, and he was still in All-Pro form in rushing the passer and stopping the run. You make not agree to where I rank McCoy in the NFC South but I don't care. He is essential to The Bucs' run defense. Seriously, I'd hate to see where you would rank Star if he were to amass just 30+ tackles.

You are taking 2 examples over a large period of time and making that your standard for evaluating every player in every situation.  And even then you are only using very selective and skewed numbers to try and make a point. For example in 2006 Sapp had 32 solo tackles and 15 assists for a total of 47 tackles. That is well above McCoy's 27 solo sacks and only 3 assists or a total of 30 combined which is  difference of 60% . Add 10 sacks to McCoy's 5 and you have a 100% increase in the number of sacks compared to McCoy in 2012. The only absurb comparison here is yours.  McCoy couldn't hold Sapp's jock strap and the numbers support it. Ask any Tampa fan if they think McCoy is even close to Sapp and they will look incredulously at you.

 

Where would I rate Star if he gets 30 plus tackles?  If he got more sacks than McCoy I would rate him above McCoy since McCoy's 30 combined is a career high.  Duh!!

The standard? No. You're desperately trying to discredit a very good season just because he accounted for 30 tackles (Roy Miller had 24 in total). Do you know how moronic you sound right now? McCoy's contributions were perhaps thee reason why running backs had a difficult time going up the middle. Somehow though, it's shot over your pea-sized brain -- "Derp, 30 tackles equals average. Durrrr." It's the equivalent of claiming that a safety with only one interception had a mediocre season. "Duh!!!" 

 

Seriously, find a neurologist, or a special needs assistant.

You really can't stand being wrong and when you are you resort to childish personal attacks in an attempt to try and discredit someone instead of dealing with the content of the argument,  If you want to appear an adult instead of a middle schooler why not stop the juvenile tactics. 

You could have made the argument that McCoy was important to their run defense up the middle without the infantile attacks and you might have some credibility.  Being smarter than a fifth grader doesn't mean you have to act like one.

Cam at 6:

There's still one question mark before the list is over...the locks are:

 

Matt Ryan

Drew Brees

Julio Jones

Darrelle Revis

 

The 5th is almost certainly Jahri Evans...but I didn't think that he'd be this high.  I obviously don't really keep up with other teams' offensive linemen (except when they get destroyed by Hardy/Johnson on any given week), but he gets a lot of respect year after year and he started in the Pro Bowl last year as well.  But still, it'd be crazy for him to get left off this list altogether.  Part of me still thinks it could be Hardy though :(

From the NFC South chat:

 

Cory (Johnson City): Pat, How can you have Bowers ranked ahead of Hardy on your top 25??? Surely must have been a mistaken omission? 

 

PY: Not an omission. I expect Bowers to have a better season than Hardy. 

Joel (NC): Pat, you know from my comments that while a Panthers fan, I am not a Homer. But I think you might be the only one on a very weak branch saying Bowers is going to outperform Hardy. I would go out on a limb and say Hardy will have the most productive season of any DE in the entire NFC South. 

PY: You could end up being right. We'll see. 

 

Allen (Ellenboro): I'm sorry pat but Bowers ahead of Hardy is nonsense. Hardy had 6.5 more sacks last year than Bowers has had in his entire career. I don't see Hardy regressing this year with the improved Panthers D -line and no way Bowers suddenly becomes an elite pass rusher.

 

PY: If I'm wrong, hit me up at the end of the season.

At least he admits he might be wrong.

The problem is, even IF (big if) Bowers has a better season than Hardy, that doesn't change the fact that Hardy is EASILY a t25 player in the NFCS. Basically, pat is just an idiot.

The list so far (since we love offseason lists):

9 - Luke Keuchly, linebacker, Panthers

10 - Roddy White, wide receiver, Falcons

11 - Ryan Kalil, center, Panthers

12 - Carl Nicks, guard, Buccaneers

13 - Darren Sproles, running back, Saints

14 - Charles Johnson, defensive end, Panthers

15 - Gerald McCoy, defensive tackle, Buccaneers

16 - Vincent Jackson, wide receiver, Buccaneers

17 - Tony Gonzalez, tight end, Falcons

18 - Dashon Goldson, safety, Buccaneers

19 - Sean Weatherspoon, linebacker, Falcons

20 - Lavonte David, linebacker, Buccaneers

21 - Steve Smith, wide receiver, Carolina Panthers

22 - Steven Jackson, running back, Atlanta Falcons

23 - Josh Freeman, quarterback, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

24 - Marques Colston, wide receiver, New Orleans Saints

25 - Da'Quan Bowers, defensive end, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Still waiting for spots:

Matt Ryan, quarterback, Falcons

Julio Jones, wide receiver, Falcons

Drew Brees, quarterback, Saints

Jimmy Graham, tight end, Saints

Jahri Evans, offensive guard, Saints

Cam Newton, quarterback, Panthers

Greg Hardy, defensive end, Panthers

Jon Beason, linebacker, Panthers

Doug Martin, running back, Buccaneers

Darrelle Revis, cornerback, Buccaneers

I'm kind of feeling like Cam is the only remaining Panther that's going to make it. And it looks like Yas thinks the Bucs have 9 out of the top 25 players in the South.

If Bowers made the list Hardy should....but I don't expect anyone not named Cam or Hardy to have a shot

Pat Y. most of his credibility a long time ago, this just shreds away at it even more.  How in your right mind, can you put a guy who has 38 tackles and 4.5 sacks over 2 seasons in the nfl, over a guy who had 61 tackles and 11 sacks just last season(over double the sacks bowers has had his first 2 seasons)?  Not to mention that Hardy's first two years in the league were better statistically by a pretty large margin than Bowers first two years. 

 

Break down on the list:(Projected number of players on the list)

Buccaneers: 9

Falcons: 6

Saints: 5

Panthers: 5

 

The fact that he has 9 Buc's on the list makes it a complete joke.  7 at most is what the Buc's should have.

 

PS: I would put Hardy on that list over Freeman all day as well.

I agree that I would personally put Hardy over some of the guys on the list but it is very subjective and at least he said that he could be wrong.  How can you compare a DE to a QB to a kicker to a CB anyways.
