  • National Football League - 2021 Season

    The Cam Newton experiment in New England has ended. The Pats appear to have committed to the 22 year old, Mac Jones, as their starting QB. Even if first year nerves slow his development, he'll be a great improvement on Newton, who demonstrated last year that he can't throw a pass of any meaningful distance.

    This isn't a dress rehearsal. Enjoy yourself. There's no do-over.

    The fall of Cam's career was a steep one. Either from bad coaching or injury, he had developed a very strange throwing motion that was not only slow to release, but also lacked any sort of zip on the ball. It looked like he was frozen from the ribcage down, and rocked the plane of his shoulders up and down instead of rotating them. I think it was the right move for the Pats in both the short and long term.

      I'm sure another team will pick Cam up as a backup or for situational purposes. The small quantity of highly talented starting (and backup) quarterbacks in the league is embarrassing.

        When I watched Cam throw last year I thought he was putting a lot of effort to get the ball 15yds. When I saw the motion I thought he was going to go for 40-45. The guys arm at one point was a weapon now it’s below average in the Tebow territory.

          Tom Brady is not just a pretty face.

            Thanks Mike . . . definitely agree with him. QB leading their receivers into a trouble spot . . . or in hockey, a pass to a player who is defenceless . . . I think the flags comes out way too easy. Do some players deserved a flag, definitely . . . it is a very slippery slope . . .
            If you think it's hard to meet new people, try picking up the wrong golf ball.

              The fact that he was unvaccinated helped make the decision to release him.

                I've often thought that the flags come out too easy in recent years. I'm not advocating the old days of head hunting , but there has to be a reasonable balance.

                  Tampa Bay made so many gaffs. They looked like rookies. Thank goodness for Brady. At least he played well. That said, the Cowboys looked great, especially Prescott.

                    Tampa will get better as the season progresses and what a terrible fumble by Godwin. Brady looked good. Dallas has a solid team and could be a force this year. Great game.

                      That's the problem I have with football now. FLAGS. Seems like every other play has a flag. It drags the game down and takes away from the flow of the game. Agree with protecting players but maybe it's time to a look at some of the other things that are called, like holding. Some are ridiculous calls.

                        I was listening to Sirius last week while travelling and the NHL channel and they played that clip. He’s 100% right and it relates to both hockey and football.

                          Lots of interesting games so far in week 1. Some of the story lines:
                          - Green Bay getting crushed by the Saints
                          - Detroit nearly coming back against San Fran
                          - Tennessee getting crushed by Arizona
                          - Dallas not getting crushed by Tampa Bay
                          - Young quarterbacks playing well after coming back from injury

                            I was quite impressed with the Pats' QB. They should have won that game, but they committed too many turnovers and penalties. My guess is that BB will force them to cure those problems before the next game. As for Buffalo, I was sure that they would win, but they simply weren't sharp enough. As for Dallas, with their weak schedule (with the exception of their first game), they have every chance of winning their division.

                              Lots of teams looked rusty yesterday. It's amazing how much the crowd noise helped the defenses out versus last years' silence.

                              I agree that Buffalo didn't look sharp. Allen threw too many high passes in the first half and the receivers dropped too many passes in the second half. They have a lot of expectations this year; I hope the pressure doesn't get to them.
