So maybe someone can explain it better than me, but was Bill Belichick doing something on defense that tricked McVay into using CJ Anderson more?

Using certain personnel...or lining up in a certain formation....so much so that McVay, because of his gameplan, threw out Anderson out there WAY more than he needed to.

If true, that's another way Bill has found to take out a team's best player lol.

I don't know if this is a stupid question, but hopefully this is a good place to ask.

Are there any website resources that touch on which plays got called during a game at key points, preferably in text form? I'd like to read about some of how the strategy plays out during a game and coaches/players adapt, rather than just the "pass to gain 5 yards" "rush for no gain" "rush to gain 2 yards" play by play.

I'm guessing it may not exist because it's a lot of work to create AND it would be very valuable for coaches.

The best way I can explain to you is this. Mcvay did not try things consistently enough for them to fail. Sometimes you'll have a coach try to run it all the time on 3 series and go 3 and out and they'll abandon the run because it wasn't working. Mcvay did the opposite. He would have CJ on there to run protect, pass on first, run on first, never ran on third. He was all over the place in his play calling. He never established anything consistently, not even failing.

Will the Giants avoid this QB class? draft experts say the class isn't better than 2018 or will they become infatuated with a QB...

Go Rams.. :[

Goff needs to develop a lot more and McVay needs to start varying up his schemes ffs. I hope we continue to dominate the West and can get into the playoffs despite the brutal schedule. As long as Cooks, Kupp, Woods, and Gurley are healthy our offense should continue to chug. I believe in this team and think we'll be just fine.

He's old
Missed a couple games last year
He did miss 3 games, but he was also 20 for 21 FGs and 33 for 35 on PATs. Vinatieri is old too. Not saying Bryant is Vinatieri, but you can be old and still be a kicker

They should've brought in competition and if he gets beaten out then cut him.

I can't deal with this Matt Bryant news right now :(

He ain't retiring yet, so some team will be happy to bring him on board for a year or two.

I'm pretty sure his contract that is kind of big t0

It seems like they were pleased with Giorgio Tavecchio who was perfect during that stretch Bryant was out. They carried two kickers the rest of year so they must be confident in him and this was probably in the cards.

Plus gotta free up as much as they can to get Grady Jarrett and Julio’s deals done.
