  1. Even though I watched several of his games this year, I decided to review his play. Since I challenged you, it was only fair that I challenge myself as well. Below is a video of every play Jones made this year...not just the highlights (someone posted it earlier, not sure who). So far I have looked at every play of his through the first four games, and so far it only reinforced my perspective. Was every pass perfect? No! Did he always make the right decision? Certainly not! However, I made a point to look at every one of his deep balls in those games (30+ air yards). The vas
  2. Ok, so the one play you can come up with is a pass with 43 air yards where he wasn't able to step into the throw and was underthrown by maybe 1-2 yards causing only a slight adjustment by the WR. Ok then. I'll give you that you are technically correct, the receiver did have to slow up...although he didn't have to stop and wait, just make a slight adjustment. But where are the others? Every single QB in the history of the game has had the occasional pass that was underthrown...even those with a cannon have been known to make their receivers slow up from time to time. But for the truly
  3. This is an extremely fair take. There is a lot to like about him, but he's definitely not a sure thing as a franchise QB.
  4. Really? Go find me some examples. Show a pattern, then I will acknowledge you are right. The thing is, I watched most of Alabama's games this year, and no, receivers typically didn't have to wait on the ball. Jones' ball placement, even on deep balls, was stellar.
  5. Of course not...who needs to be objective. LOL.
  6. I love how triggered people pre-emptively warn someone against becoming triggered. Go look at whatever video you can get your hands on and show examples of where Jones consistently shows he doesn't have decent arm strength. I seriously doubt you'll find much (which is why I expect you'll deflect and try to turn this on me). I'll be perfectly honest, I went into this college season thinking Jones was nothing but a game manager. But the more Alabama games I watched, the more I began to realize that he was much more than I expected. My advise for you is to not dig your heels in and
  7. If you think that Burrow's arm strength is absolutely better than Jones', then you clearly didn't watch one or both actually play. Neither has a cannon, but both can make all of the throws. Jones has never had a problem making whatever throw was required of him...even on deep balls. I find it funny that you try to use that elite target myth to prove your point. Jones played with one guaranteed first rounder for most of the year (Waddle got injured early), while Burrow was throwing to three likely first round targets, with one that battled for rookie of the year, and the other being tal
  8. His arm strength is actually decent. he doesn't have a cannon, but it is strong enough to make all of the throws. His deep ball accuracy is among the best, if not THE best, of any QB in this draft. And while some like to say it was because of the talent and scheme he played with, look at his ball placement on these deep passes. Very rarely does his receiver have to even slow a step for the ball...it usually gets there fast, and is placed perfectly where the ball drops right in front of them, allowing for YAC. If he was throwing to wide open receivers that had to wait on the ball to ge
  9. Other than his running, What? His arm is every bit as strong as Burrows', he is every bit as accurate as Burrow, he is able to put plenty of zip on the ball when he needs to, he throws with incredible anticipation and his ball placement is outstanding - often hitting his receivers perfectly in stride, allowing them to maximize RAC, he processes information extremely fast, he is able to identify defenses and understands who his hot reads are, he has shown he can manipulate the defense with both his eyes and body movements, he has a quick release, he maneuvers inside the pocket extremely w
  10. This is where being a good talent evaluator is so important. It's easy to see the struggles a player has on the field, but what is tougher is looking past that to the actual reasons for those struggles, and determining if you can either correct or work around them.
  11. Oh, I know. I just used your post to respond in general about the idea that he is looking like a meddling owner. Generally speaking again, the truth is that every owner is involved with team decisions to some degree. The problem is when the owner takes on a lead voice, but doesn't have the expertise to make intelligent and knowledgeable decisions...basically, Jerry Jones. The thing I like about Tepper, is that he has that aggressiveness and willingness to do whatever it takes to build a Super bowl contender. However, he also seems to recognize his lack of expertise and lets those that
  12. I don't see it that way. I think that while he clearly wants an upgrade at QB (and is correct in wanting it), he is letting the professionals do their jobs. Other than the idea of him being obsessed with getting a franchise QB and willing to pay, I haven't heard one word about him actually being involved with any negotiations or decisions. Everything seems to be funneling through Rhule and Fitterer. The thing is, he's not saying anything any knucklehead fan doesn't already know...we need a legitimate franchise QB. I believe he just realizes that we may not have another opportunity l
  13. I think Wanda is being manipulated through her grief to create this "Shangri-La" in order for whomever the bad guy is to steal her power. I believe Vision beginning to question what is going on is affecting Wanda and making her realize that things don't make sense. So the bad guy either sends an underling, or goes himself in disguise, as Pietro to regain control of her and re-establish his manipulation. However, because either the real Pietro is truly dead so couldn't be re-animated, or they could only use the visage of actual townspeople, they had to try and make her believe this Pietro wa
  14. I actually think it is Mephisto who is behind everything. I believe he is doing this to steal Wanda's magic. The commercial may have laid this out. It was for a yogurt called Yo-Magic, and the shark says he "snacked on Yo-Magic" which sounds an awful lot like "your magic." Sounds pretty spot on to me. However, if it's not him, I suspect that it may be Nightmare, who has the ability to draw power from the psychic energies of the subconscious minds of dreaming beings. The one thing I have no doubt about is that Wanda is not doing this on her own.
  15. This will actually lead into the next Spiderman movie (which has Dr. Strange in it), then the story line will conclude with Dr. Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. It's going to be crazy!!
