Bill Belichick is really happy!
Join me today for this Thursday edition of our It’s Your Dime internet radio show.
Just a few of the topics I will be getting to on “Nate’s Notes”: We’ll discuss the looming suspension of Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley and speculate on the potential punishment for offensive tackle Johnny Culbreath. We’ll explore the discrepancy between the Bears’ stated plans for returner Devin Hester and the role he is taking in minicamps so far. Are the Bears intentionally misleading the press, or have they begun to lose confidence in their other receivers already? We’ll reveal what the Packers’ handling of cornerback Charles Woodson in minicamp indicates about the role Woodson will play on the field this year. And we’ll get into the topic of quarterback Jay Cutler. What’s up with the new phenomenon of Happy Jay?
To get in on the conversation with me, please call in to the show at (347) 426-3917. Lines open 15 minutes before we go on the air, so make your voice heard on It’s Your Dime.
The show will stream live from this page, or you can open the stream on another tab.
Bill Belichick is really happy!
If Newton keeps up the torrid INT pace he established in the Pro Bowl, he'll have 96 for the season.
An actual good analysis for once at B/R. http://tinyurl.com/88rrbl8 Sorry, Cam lovers. You won't like this.
According to STATS LLC, Cam Newton had a passer rating of just 14.7 while under pressure. Newton was 0-3 last season when he passed for over 300 yards in a game. His six highest games in passing yards were all losses. Newton was 5-1 in the six games where he had his fewest passing yards.
Cumulative defensive passer rating for Newton’s opponents was 86.7. That makes his 84.5 passer rating a bit below average. Adjusting for how he did against each opponent, his season is below average, making his opponents’ passer ratings cumulatively decrease by 1.02. The lower the defensive passer rating, the better it is for the defense, not the passer.
Another reason to be concerned with Newton’s efficiency is his 60.0 completion percentage. Though not poor, it was heavily inflated by him completing 90 of 113 passes (79.6 percent) that were thrown behind the line of scrimmage. Think screens, dump passes, check downs, etc. The best quarterbacks in the game are not throwing that short that often like Newton did last season. For Newton, only 41 of his 65 third-down completions (63.1 percent) produced a first down. The best quarterbacks are in the 70’s on that number.
Some 14 year old Amateur is playing in the US Open and shot one worse than Bubba Watson and 3 worse than Phil. I am sure THEIR parents are proud of them.
Jermichael Finley has made it clear he wants better chemistry with Aaron Rodgers. Thursday wasn't a bad start. The two hooked up for a pair of long gains in team action. The first was a 20-yard laser up the right seam. -Tyler Dunne
Summmary: Seems like Peter King had a family reunion at Wrigley
RT @PeteAbe: The outfield at Wrigley is a mess, the result of two concerts. Apparently a herd of cattle attended 1 show from the looks of it
Later everyone. Bears football players are of lower quality than the Packers’s players, and the Bears coaches are, in a word, reallysuckyatcoaching.
Don’t reply because I’m leaving now. *puts fingers in ears*
Anyone see that video of Gronkowski doing body shots of from girls on his vacation yet?
He seems more and more like one of those guys in Gabes d-bag pool video each day/
Just remember, Jay Cutler sucks and is a pussy
@NickFairley98 Cam had a good PR year. I really doubt it will be as nice this year. He is now a known thing. Defenses will be ready for him. Remember Matty Ice before people knew how to play him?
@LambeauOrWrigley he's chinese? so he's been playing Golf since 2
@Childerz I like Volbeat a lot. The lead singers voice is a mix between Elvis and James Hetfield haha
I will officially like all of your posts sporting the Nick Fairley mugshot!!
@NickFairley98 Braun hates this. No hookup!
It was a Brad Paisley concert, I believe Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum were also there with a few other acts.
I am now going to unlike 4 of your posts to get you down to 299.
@MIBearFan Congrats....I already miss your tits.
@ I am replying to counter your fingers in ears....have to take them out now.
@ethan_fitz01 at least he fucked Bibi Jones
That’s true because a Bears fan says it. Other Bears fans can’t rebut it.
@LambeauOrWrigley Unfamiliarity shows up right here:
In the first half of games, Newton threw 259 passes and had a 95.6 passer rating. In the second half, he threw a near-identical 258 passes, but had a 73.5 passer rating. Likewise, his rating drops for the first three quarters: 102.4 (1st), 90.0 (2nd), 65.5 (3rd), and 78.4 (4th).
As the games went on, Newton got worse. This helps to explain the miserable 1-8 record Newton and the Panthers had in fourth quarter comeback opportunities last season.
@Childerz Absolutely nuts! He plays Olympic at 14 and is able to play at level of the worst PGA players. What is going to happen when he is actually able to drive well?
@Childerz If he was from the Dominican Republic little kids baseball team, one million journalists would have demanded his birth certificate by now.
@MIBearFan Anything about less B J can't be good. More B J is what we all need.
@Gabes22 He is the anti Nick Nolte. He decided to bring positive vibe to the shoot.
I like the fact that for Nick Fairley, being arrested is so commonplace for him, that he is no longer pissed off when it happens.
@MIBearFan - 2 things... it is gayer yes.... but as far as boring not even remotely possible... we have just as much out doorsie shit to do plus our metropolitan area is bigger than any in Wisconsin, and 100x's safer than any in Michigan.
If you weren't from the Midwest too, I'd consider your point valid.
