    Why can we say things like this with such surety but can't express any confidence whatsoever that Tunsil will get extended?

    Man... if we can learn to block on the 2nd & 3rd level this run game can be dangerous.

    Because they will be near capped out extending the players they have and wont have premium draft capital to fill the voids.

    They have quite a few big contributors as free agents this offseason and next.

    2021 is even worse

    Watson
    Fuller
    Tunsil
    Cunningham
    Stills
    Mancz
    Scarlett

    There's not going to be a whole lot of cap space left over to fill roster holes in either year and they wont have the draft picks to supplement the roster either.

    And then 2022 is Watt, Fulton and Reid. No big deal!

    Not to mention who he married. Yeah that must have been a Hell (pun intended) deal he made.

    He would like to run the EP system but it doesn't fit Watson.

    Not sure you want to re-sign Watt/Fulton in 2022. If you do the cap is going to go up when the new CBA gets done.

    This is what I meant when I wrongly used the word stupid. Thanks for expressing my thoughts more eloquently.

    Disagree

    There were open receivers in the middle of the field in those games. The only reason we had this discussion is because Watson missed a few big passes in those games against top defenses.

    It's false and totally blasphemous. Dude just showed you he knows wtf he's doing out there.

    But this is typical of you when you dislike a person or player.

    Its more accurate to say that the version BoB has been running doesn't fit him. The EP system itself is very customizable and is design to fit pretty much any type of QB or team. As I've said before BoB like big arm pocket passers and that's what he has designed his system for. That's not the EP system itself that's his version of it.

    Agreed, This is one of the reasons BOB needed to change the offense to make things easier on Watson. BOB is asking Watson to do more than he's currently capable of doing. This doesn't mean he cant learn all of the things BOB asks him to do. However I think after 3 yrs of learning the system it's fair to ask if he will ever truly get it. This makes some uncomfortable.

    Brady doesn't have an overly strong arm and had a record breaking season with BOB as OC.

    Bill O'Brien's version didn't fit any quarterback we've had so far. But when he actually runs the correct EP system, Watson has flourished, Fitzpatrick has had a few really good games, Hoyer had some decent games and even trashy Brock had a few aight games in it. That's when it was the actual EP system.

    If what you say is even close to right isn't that more of an indictment of O'Brian than it is Watson. Why did he spend 3 years trying to force a system that wasn't working on a supremely talented young QB instead of adapting the system to fit him.

    This absolutely makes me uncomfortable with O'Brian and his ability to get his players in the best position to win.
