And though we've played bad teams this year, that doesn't mean he's doing this against bad defenses: Our opponents have defensive DVOA rankings of:
1, 5, 7, 12, 13, 18, 21, 27, 30, 32. Pretty standard

Yea but which ones has he been good against? I know #1 he was very bad against.

Did you see the stat I am referring to? He's 20/29 on converting 3rd and 10+ when asked to throw. It's not like he ws 0/9 versus 1,5, 7, and 20/20 against the rest of them. It's distributed pretty evenly most likely. We beat teams 5 and 12, And I'm pretty sure Denver was like 7th before we beat them up and sent them to 12th this week. And despite the 3 turnovers, Josh heavily outgained New England (375 total yards to 224, 23 first downs to 11, and yes, some of those were Barkley, but before Josh went out he had a TD drive and was in the middle of driving down the field again, well into NE territory, which is more impressive against NE's D than NE's lack of yards against our worse D) - that wasn't the first time a young QB had trouble with Belichick disguises (compare Darnold on MNF against NE to Darnold now, for another example). In fact the Ravens are the first team with a QB in the first 2 seasons to beat NE in like 25 games or something like that

But anyway, I don't know what your point is considering the stat was 20/29, and there was a whole spread of defensive rankings there, 5 above average and 5 below, obviously some of that success came against good teams and some came against bad

Weren't you referring to DVOA? I was just curious to know which ones Josh beat and lost too and their ranking. Not sure why this is so aggressive.

Defensive DVOA. The miscommunication here is that I'm not saying that Josh's game was great or bad against any of his teams, I'm saying that his 3rd and long stat is stunning because it comes against a typical slate of defenses that you could expect to see in any season, not just an easy schedule one. He's first in the league at it somehow. There are a lot of things that I never thought he'd be able to do, so even though he's still got a long ways to go to be a top 10 QB, this season is full of surprises and tremendously successful so far

It's funny that McVay is last. 

And that Bellichick is near the bottom. 

I don't blame either of them given what their offenses look like with Brady and Goff

Well, most coaches are dinosaurs.

Anyway, this makes it all the more dumbfounding the number of times he'll waste a timeout trying to draw someone offside at the 45 and then punt.

Not to pee in the Cheerios too much, but we did play, I think, three games with 40+mph winds.

Incredible time at Buffalo Bros tonight for the DFW Bills Backers party.  It was packed and it was loud.  There are also reports of spontaneous Bills fan gatherings in other parts of the DFW area, including Texas Live (the entertainment district adjacent to the stadium).  A Buffalo News photographer was there, and snapped this picture of me and my new friend Terry from Olean who flew down for the game.  It's already been published on the BN website.

And that's exactly what's missing from a lot of analytics. Context. The wind is kicking up, you know an offensive lineman has tweaked a knee earlier in the drive and is playing through it, Belichik has cinched up his hoodie...
