Graham is used more as a receiving threat in a pass happy offense. I would still rather have Graham in our offense than Pettigrew. We throw the GOD DAMN football more than any team in the league.Which would be why I said take him out of passing plays, or just use him as a blocker.
Seriously, do you know nothing of football? Many tight ends get used as just blockers, you want us to not use Grew at all when he's an elite blocker? Are you seriously that stupid?
I don't want undeserved wins playing weak opponents and be a pathetic 12-4 team. I'd rather be a team that is competitive against top opponents.
Learn reading comprehension, it's a very good skill.
I SPECIFICALLY said winning games against weak opponents, but getting your *** kicked against top competition. Being 12-4 and going to the playoffs does jack ****ing **** for you when you get to the playoffs and get destroyed because the only reason you made it to the playoffs is because you beat pathetic teams, all you end up with is a lower draft pick, and getting embarrassed on national TV.
Again, I'd rather be good against top competition than beat low end opponents to get a good record and then get embarassed in the playoffs.
And like you said, the goal is to win a superbowl, if all you can do is beat up on weak teams and get trounced by elite teams, you aren't going to ****ing make the superbowl are you? Use your brain for once, ffs.
In fact, winning games like that only sets you back, as I said, you get lower picks, and it makes it harder for you to improve your team.
My argument about Graham was just that, about Graham, less about Pettigrew.
Pettigrew has **** the bed this year, I'd take him out of probably my top 15 TEs right now.
The thing is - Graham is STILL overrated, he can't block for ****. You see how you're getting angry over Pettigrew not being good in the passing game? Well it's the same goddamn thing for Graham in the blocking game, which AGAIN, is half of a tight ends job. The fact that you think Grew is awful for being bad at half of a tight ends job just proves my point - Tight Ends need to fulfill BOTH roles, not just one, which Graham does not do. The fact that you can't see this is a little pathetic.
At the end of the day, we're better than the other 4-7 teams. We just got unlucky with an extremely tough schedule, people overvalue wins.
I repeat this again, winning games because you're facing weak opponents merely gets you a late draft pick, which makes it harder to improve. Then the next year when you face tougher teams and go 5-11, people are like "WHAT HAPPENED", You know exactly what the hell happened, your team was sorry and got where it got because they played weak opponents, not because they were good.
People need to look more at how good a team plays rather than just wins, just because you lose does not mean you are aweful.
Anyone who tells me that you'd rather have a better record by beating weak opponents is NOT SEEING THE BIG PICTURE.
