    OBJ gets the better of Norman? You must have watched a different game then everybody else. did. OBJ did throw more cheap shots than Norman if that's what you call getting the better of him.

    Hey Cian,
    I don't have a twitter to be able to tell you how garbage you are. Hating on Bortles for two passes past the LOS. Did either of them negatively effect anything? NO. They were both on fourth down and he was trying to make a play. If he just threw the ball away or ran and didn't get a first down we still would have gotten field goals. Only an incompetent fool who thinks he knows what he is talking about judges a player for that. Blocking Jags fans on twitter cause you can talk crap and not take it. If you don't like people analyzing how you do your job, I suggest stop writing and analyzing others for how they do their jobs.
    Sincerely,
    Someone who knows more then you about football

    Hi Cian,

    I very much enjoy your work on here, on Football Guys, and on Presnapreads. For some reason you have my twitter account @thewireseason4 blocked. We have had nothing but positive interactions on there and I like reading your takes. I am sorry for commenting on your profile asking for this, but I believe it was a mistake and I am missing on football knowledge. Thank you.

    With regards to your Power Ranking for every QB's supporting cast article, did you do any research at all? Or did you just randomly assign a numerical value between 1 and 32 for each team and then make up some info for each player you found on the team's depth chart?

    Just read your Power Ranking for every QB's supporting cast. Wow, not good at all. Your lack of research when it came to ranking the offensive lineman was truly appalling. You say Green Bay's line isn't great except according to PFF Lang and Sitton were the 2nd best combo of G in the league and both graded out top 10. Then you never mention Linsley who, as a rookie, graded out as a top 5 C in the league according to PFF. Then you mention how Bulaga isn't an "All-Pro" RT when just last week, your own site B/R. Rated Bulaga as the best RT in the game last yr. How does that work? Then you mentioned Mangold has, "lost it and isn't what he once was" is I believe what you said. But again, you apparently didn't check with your colleagues. Because again just last week B/R rated Mangold as the BEST C in the league. I really gotta ask did you do any research before writing this piece or did you put it all together on opinion?

    Hey just read your make or break season for Kap. It would be super interesting to see something like this for Jay Cutler. I get into multiple debates with a coworker of mine that says they'd prefer Kap, I'm on the other end. I have faith the Jay can put things together, but the fuse is getting short. That would be very appreciated.

    Thanks for the good read.

    Solid article on Melvin Gordon and the BPA strategy. May want to reread it though. It has a lot of errors that should be edited like "turning the cornerback" instead of the corner (reffering to starting north-south movement around the trenches, ).

    Cian can you do an article breaking down the NYGiants McAdoo offense? I know, it's not a 10 win team. But there's millions of fans curious about their team's tactics, the Kelly Eagles have numerous X and O sites and videos. Seahawks have a great one in Fieldgulls. The rest, are yours to teach.

    I was at NFL.com to find obscure stats, and I had time, so they requested I fill out one of those surveys and I finally did. "How can we make the site better" I mentioned you and the F.O. crew. If NFL.com expects me to go there, they'd better have some film study, some .gif animations, to become a bookmark to compete with you, Tanier and Bowen at B.R.

    Cian, love your work, keep plugging away. You study the film, and say what you see, and that's dangerous on a site like this. You said Hoyer had limitations and the Cleveland fan boys are out for blood. I don't know if its a better strategy to be diplomatic, like Matt Bowen, or caustic, like Nolan Nawrocki to further your career. Nawrocki is the famous scout who printed cafeteria gossip as actual scout report: 'Newton has a fake smile'; he DID get his entire 2014 Dirty Laundry list published by NFL.com, a one shot article titled 'character concerns'. But you and Bowen and Tanier are printing REAL stuff using Footballoutsiders and film study.
    Page Clicks are page clicks....I suggest you Print 'Why Big Ben is a Great QB", and show with diagrams why he's great, most of us including myself don't actually know. That would get shared by a million Yintzers. Show the great QBs on the teams with large fanbases. Compare them with rivals and predecessors. There's alot of offseason to go, your readers are the kind who want to learn more. So show us Greatness !
