The Patriots connection makes it a pretty easy one, I must say. :yayaya:


Besides, nobody'd get it if i went with either sherrod coates or some generic 'coats disease' comment.

Where is R.quinn? Mcd traded up to get him.

We don't have TE that can catch the ball.
It would be helpful for our passing game as it creates mismatch with LBs.

Hey, at least we know he can't catch! That's always a positive. I'm starting to dislike McDaniels. His offense is irritating.

Offensive Drop Rate

Who had the worst hands (http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stat-analysis/2010/offensive-drop-rate#) in the league? Well, looking at the list of players with the highest drop rates (minimum: 30 targets), there are a lot of names you might expect.

Player Targets Drops Drop Rate
Daniel Coats (http://www.footballoutsiders.com/player/15616/daniel-coats) 31 7 22.6%





Although Coats doesn't have the reputation of a Robert Royal (http://www.footballoutsiders.com/player/16813/robert-royal) or a L.J. Smith (http://www.footballoutsiders.com/player/16927/lj-smith), he should; I won't spoil his Football Outsiders Almanac 2010 comment, but it involves about as much scorn as you can fit into a single paragraph.

As i said..he fits in Mcd system..The job of RB and TE is only to block.
That's the way his scheme works.
Right now, we Daniel Graham, R.quinn, TE we got from Lions and then Coats..
Not one can catch the ball..

Mcd is a epic failure.

Mcd once again takes a TE that can't catch the ball..That's bull****.
Where is R.quinn??..He is supposed to be our blocking TE.
Mcd traded up to get that guy.
I was told that Quinn is the best blocking TE and he did right in trading up.
Total lies..
We got another blocking TE from Detroit..What happened to him?
How many blocking TE's do we need?

Regarding our passing attach..We scored around 8 total points in 1st quarter upto now.
Our passing game seems to work only in 4th quarter when the game is out of reach.
It would be a good idea to involve TE's and Running backs..Do you think all other teams are dumb?

Mcd is a epic failure.

but he does have plays designed to go to his blocking TE's on 3rd and short, they just can't catch the ball, other wise they would be epicly brilliant plays.

and then:

"Josina: aww bby lemme kno, riht? holla at me2u, l8r aftr sho.l8"

Apparently I was also signed then cut from the Denver Broncos, and Josina wants to talk to me. Should I be scared?

You are pure fail.

Our issue is the running game. Would that not require players who can BLOCK? Seriously how dumb can you possibly be? And considering Coats is not on the roster and Ball is, your entire post is a monument to the giant limp dick statue of fail, with your smiling mug plastered right on its saggy tip.

And for the love of God its ATTACK. If you are out of primary school you should know this.

Per the press conference from today: Teams showed interest in nabbing ball off the PS. Broncos didn't want to lose him so they signed him to the 53 and released Coats. They still have interest in Coats.

You are. Purely and simply.

Moreno: 12 rec 127 yds 2 td
Buckhalter: 16 rec 106 yds 1 td
Graham: 12 rec, 94 yds 0 td
Maroney: 4 rec, 50 yds 0 td
Gronkowski: 6 rec, 43 yards 0 td
Larsen: 3 rec, 3 yds 0 td

Totals: 53 rec, 423 yds, 3 tds.

Thats roughly 27% (53) of Denver's total completions (195).

The NY Giants by comparison have completed 22% (40) out of NYG's total completions (178).

Then you have teams like the Chargers and Chiefs who throw to their backs and TE's more because of a lack of talent outside or injury. If the strength of Denver's offense is the WR's...why would you go out of your way to throw it to your backs and tightends? This may sound counter intuitive, especially to someone of your mental accumen...but Denver's offense is WR centric. You will never have a tightend or running back be the focus of the passing game.

But I have a feeling if Denver did incorporate the backs and tightends more in the passing game, you would bitch about the drop in production from the WRs.

Lance can't be all that bad...

Josh said in his Wednesday presser that they made the move because the team had a lot invested in him knowledge wise and Lance knew the plays and they didn't want to lose him.

It is just odd that they would make a move on Coats then be forced by sudden intrest of a PS RB to make a move that dictates their roster. They didn't sign Lance because they want to use him, just keep him from signing somewhere else.

A reporter also pointed out that Andre Brown was on his 4th team this year.

I would like more insight on how they found out about this sudden interest in Ball.
