Interesting whiteboard talk on defensing the Texans ZBS. We've seen defense this year try to force run to the outside, and I would be surprised if the Jets didn't try to do the same. But....

All anyone will want to talk about is giving check marks at QB to bot the Texans and the Jets. No advantage at QB for the Texans? Really?

Clearly Jets fans think he's on that level too. Oh wait.....

QBs they would take over Sanchez. (http://forums.theganggreen.com/showthread.php?t=74612)

I'm going to keep it nice this week and just say everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

Tebow's connection to God versus Schaub's ability to throw a ball in the general direction of his own player. It's a wash.

Dirty Sanchez = Matt Schaub? Is that what he is saying? No, I'm not I didn't watch it. I'm not going to give him the web hit.:turtle:

His shout out in the end thanking both Jets & Texans message boards for their support. That was pretty cool :thumbup

Good breakdown on whiteboard. Donnie Jones as key to Texans success by pinning Jets deep, forcing them to drive length of field for scores a little different. Usually reserved for tight, evenly matched teams. The key to me is keeping Schaub clean, Texans improving their running game (yards per carry) & Texans defense forcing more takeaways :turtle:

The QBs being even is a joke. Think the jets fans would be calling for Tebow if Schaub was their starter? Think Tebow would even be on their roster if Schaub was their starter?

Its not saying that Sanchez/Tebow are better than Schaub. Keep in mind that Jets have 2 QBs on their roster that have won playoff games just like the Texans do. Both are talented. If you look at the rest of the Offensive roster, you'll see the Jets have this :turtle: and this:vincepalm: at their skill positions. So, the QBs are the least of the problem in NY

Do what?! Sanchez is one of the leagues most inaccurate QBs, no matter who the WRs are. He also makes way too many bone-headed decisions.

I think most of the people in the NFL and most of the fans would agree, that at this moment, Schaub is way better than either Sanchez or Tebow (or both of them combined). Both Jets QBs might be out of a job in 2 seasons. And I think you really could argue, that the QB play is the biggest problem of the city.

So I think you are one of the very few that thinks that way. But hey, everybody can have their opinions and I actually really enjoy watching your videos.

Y'all also are forgetting they have Greg McElroy at 3rd string QB who won a national championship with Alabama and had a high Wonderlic score. We don't even have a 3rd QB now that we released Beck. So not only do they have 2 QB's who have NFL playoff expereience they also have championships in college PLUS they have MORE QB's. So it's easy to see that the Jets are at worst even at the QB position and probably better. I'll have to check the Madden ratings to make sure but I'm pretty sure the overall skills will heavily favor the Jets.

We are screwed....:facepalm:

Yep, I did some thorough analysis and we are inferior at QB:

TEAM First Name Last Name Overall Speed Awareness Throw Power Deep Accuracy

Texans Matt Schaub 89 62 88 88 78
Jets Mark Sanchez 80 69 74 88 71
Jets Tim Tebow 77 81 78 87 80
Texans T.J. Yates 74 61 67 86 76
Jets Greg McElroy 66 64 57 78 67


Texans John Beck 70 65 74 77 55
Texans Case Keenum 64 70 53 81 59

I included the last 2 names because these guys aren't playing for the Texans so I have to leave them out of my analysis. Going deep inside the numbers:

Overall Texans QB: 163
Overall Jets QB: 223

I don't really feel like running the other numbers because that's all I need to show right there, the Jets QB's have a MUCH higher overall skill score than the Texans. If we had kept Beck I'd give us the nod on QB's but I think Em Diggy was actually being a little hard on the Jets and just called it even between the Jets and Texans even when it's obvious the Jets QB's are overall MUCH better.

Also, for anyone questioning Tebow's accuracy on long passes, I'd like to point out he scored an 80 on deep passing so I look for Tebow to be really stretching the field with his pin-point passing game all day long based on what I'm seeing here. I also just want to point out that I have played the game before (3rd string fullback freshman and sophomore years and sometimes kickoff team) so I know what I'm talking about.

Em thanks for video.

I disagree with our QB and other positions` evaluation. I couldn't agree on RB position for last couple weeks and now QB and other D positions. Perhaps, Jets' QBs may have potential to be good in their indefinite NFL future. But, when you pick an effectiveness as QB for each team, I pick Matt over those two any day. Matt fits great in our scheme. He is accurate, his play action is so good that sometime fool TV camera guys not to mention opponent's D. He may not have a strongest arm but strong enough to throw long if necessary. I thought Sanchez would grow to be a good NFL QB after seen his rookie yr performance. But since his rookie yr, I don't think he hasn't developed as expected. Tebow is Tebow. He is good Uni QB but a big question mark as NFL QB to me. So yeah, I take Matt over these two any day.

Go Texans!!!

For me , he wants to be a professional yet isnt professional in his approach - No use of statistical analysis. I cant take that seriously.

If you want to be a professional , you have to do the complete job , not half of it. Anyone can give an opinion , those who take their craft seriously can back up that opinion with more than just a statement of "skillset."

I've known of Diggy for a while now, back on the old Texans' board - back when the highlight of his video was watching him try to turn on a microphone in the trailer to his predictions. Haha! Good times.

But remember ladies and germs, like all of us these are only opinions, except in Diggy's case he puts through the time, the effort, the research and the money to put a homegrown product out there. Why? Because he loves the game. Any other motives he has, like the number of clicks or what-have-you, is secondary to how he started off.

I'm just saying: give the guy a break a little, okay? I don't agree with everything he says; just like I don't agree with a lot of mindless homerism, either. Just take it for what it is. His vids should be fun...and they are.

I read a good amount of football articles, scouting sites, mock draft stuff, and I have never seen anyone with a top 10 QB list rate Sanchez above Schaub. It's nearly universally accepted now that Sanchez might be replaced this year due to his poor play, and nobody is really confident in Tebow enough to say he deserves the starting job. Long term, I expect the Jets to be drafting a first round QB within the next two years and probably after cleaning house. Sanchez is clearly a below average QB in the NFL and has a 72 career QB rating to show for it.

To say that the QB position between these two teams is a push is ludicrous. You might possibly be the only person on the internet (outside of NYC and Gainsville) who seems to think they are evenly matched. We're talking about a 35 point QB rating difference between the starters alone, and you think that's a push. Thanks for the laughs.

Dutch..... His opinion is the equivalent to Tebow throwing the ball. Terrible! I respect his hustle, but his talent evaluation stinks. I can't sugar coat it any more than that. His reasoning that the Jets Qbs have won playoff games means that they're on the same level may be the single most idiotic thing I've ever seen from anyone. So because Brad Johnson and Trent Dilfer won Super Bowls does that mean that they're better than Dan Marino? His logic sucks..... There really isn't any way around saying that.

10-06-2012, 08:53 PM
OMG, I just realized how really scarey Tebow can be. Preseason, he had a 26.5 QB rating. During the regular season, he has earned a rating that shadows even Schaub.......an amazing 104.2! I didn't realize the kind of force we may be up against if Ryan puts him in. http://www.nfl.com/player/timtebow/497135/gamelogs?season=2012:wadepalm:

You can't blame all of the Jets' offensive problems on Sanchez. As the QB he is going to get blamed. They have no run game, no o line and are now devoid of wide outs.

With that said, never in Sanchez's career has he been an accurate QB. His upside is limited at this point. It's still amazing to see the media slobber all over him though like he's the second coming of Namath.

Iirc, Namath was actually a rather poor QB who was really never the reason the Jets won games. He was more of the game manager type, so describing Sanchez as the second coming of Namath isn't all that far off, except he hasn't won a Super Bowl.

I never understood how Namath got into the Hall. I understand it was a different time yada yada but is there another HoF QB who threw more INT's than TD's much less 50 more INT's? (Bradshaw was +2 - only chance I came up with)

Wait until we play Buffalo and he calls J.J. Watt & Mario Williams a push :rolleyes:

Which would be much more understandable... A least Mario is a starting calibre DE. Sure he isn't worth the big money he s getting and he has injury and motivation problems, but he is a guy that would probably start on just about every NfL team.

Sanchez and Tebow so far are not really starting calibre players - lets say borderline starters, but that's being nice. Schaub is like 2 levels above them.

I've known of Diggy for a while now, back on the old Texans' board - back when the highlight of his video was watching him try to turn on a microphone in the trailer to his predictions. Haha! Good times.

But remember ladies and germs, like all of us these are only opinions, except in Diggy's case he puts through the time, the effort, the research and the money to put a homegrown product out there. Why? Because he loves the game. Any other motives he has, like the number of clicks or what-have-you, is secondary to how he started off.

I'm just saying: give the guy a break a little, okay? I don't agree with everything he says; just like I don't agree with a lot of mindless homerism, either. Just take it for what it is. His vids should be fun...and they are.


Here's the thing, though. I respect someone putting in the time and effort to put these previews together, but when there is such a transparent effort to pander to both team's fans to drive clicks, the credibility of the source is diminished immensely.
I thought some of the reviews were decent last year, but this year, it is just so blatantly obvious that the writer is pandering to both crowds, and/or trying to hedge his bets about certain things so he can go back later and claim he predicted things correctly that I don't even click the links anymore.

So, his tactic of giving hand jobs to both fan bases has failed in my case.

Once upon a time, I clicked the links, but now I read a few comments on this board from members with opinions that I respect, and see that clicking the links would be a complete waste of my time.

Watt deserves a unique Bobble Head,:tiphat: equipped with a Bobble Finger.

That is actually a very good idea. I have never owned a bobble head, but I would pay a few bucks for one of those.
