    Interesting but not surprising that tire choice makes a huge difference especially for the rwd car. What do these cars come with from the factory? I would kill for either car. Some guy got a P1 delivered here in MN a few months back, so badass.

    No, i mean what i wrote. There is no point to overspining anything if you properly match hardware to your goals and limitations to have the broadest range and best overall performance

    It's an interesting thought, one that makes more sense when you really digest it. NE has three main chess pieces in their secondary group. Revis Browner McCourty Browner has a very specific set of strengths. Mainly, if he gets his hands on you, the route is done. It's v hard to get the ball over the top of him due to his length and relatively good ball skills. Where he struggles is with twitch and long speed. But he can beat the crap out of anyone, and matches up v nicely against the big X type WRs. McCourty is an all-pro type at center field. His range is outstanding. What does this allow you to do? It allows you to put Browner on the X, have him beat the piss out of him, and shade McCourty over the top. You won't get beaten vertically, and it lets Browner really do his thing. Then you take Revis and put him wherever you'd like. Him against boundary receivers isn't competitive. So the end result is that you eliminate the vertical play, beat up the X WR, and completely erase the Z WR. NE is so game plan heavy that a lot of the times Revis will trail the X (think AJ Green and Brandon Marshall). But for the most part, this is what NE wants to do from a gameplan standpoint. I think this is the most balanced, complete team in Football. But one injury can change everything. Great, great game on tap this weekend. Brady v Rogers yes please.

    Regis played great, Tate isn't a superstar route runner, he's better in space and getting the ball either over the top or in screen and crossing routes. He doesn't explode out of the breaks very well. On that note, strange that Revis was on Tate rather than Magatron. Even though he was also shut down. Also, NE looks like a team that could win it all this year, time will tell.

    We have seen various test numbers for both of these cars. We know they are stupid fast in a straight line. The P1 for example does 0-60 in 2.6 seconds and blasts through the 1/4 mile in 9.8 @ 148.9 as tested by MotorTrend. The same source got 0-60 in 2.4 seconds for the 918 Spyder and a 10.0 @ 145.2 1/4 mile time. Those two tests were done on different days and what the numbers establish is that both accelerate at a rapid pace. These supercars are not dragsters. They are built to be the absolute quickest around a roadcourse and McLaren claims its rear wheel drive P1 (which is considerably lighter than the all wheel drive 918) goes around a roadcourse faster than anyone. Well, EVO put this to the test. The test course is pretty tight and fairly short with laptimes just over a minute. Regardless, no complaints here about seeing these two heavyweights tested in the same place at the same time. So what happens? Well the heavier all wheel drive Porsche offering more torque beats the lighter McLaren P1 by 2/10's of a second. Now, why is that? The cars are close in performance obviously but the P1 on paper has the advantage. The issue boils down to traction and the 918 offered more of it. McLaren decided to send EVO a new set of tires so they could do the test with the P1 again. This time, the Pzero Corsa tires were replaced with Pzero Trofeo R tires. With the new tires grip and traction were improved and the P1 in similar, but different, conditions improved by over a second over its previous time as well as the 918 Spyder: The McLaren P1 wins but after a tire change showing just how big of a difference a simple set of tires can make. Porsche did not bother sending different tires or a crew to help they simply let their car do what it does. Ferrari apparently just watched both from the sideline. The P1 is the quicker car around the roadcourse although it clearly needs to be prepped to do so. The 918 Spyder by virtue of its all wheel drive seems like it is more forgiving on more courses and conditions. They're both spectacular machines regardless of which gains a tenth here or there. Porsche 918 Spyder specification Engine V8, 4593cc, plus 95kW and 115kW electric motors Max Power 875bhp @ 8600rpm Max Torque 940lb ft @ 6600rpm 0-60 2.8sec (claimed 0-62) Top Speed 211mph-plus (claimed) McLaren P1 specification Engine V8, 3799cc, twin-turbo, plus 131kW electric motor Max Power 903bhp (combined) @ 7500rpm Max Torque 664lb ft (combined) @ 4000rpm 0-60 2.8sec (claimed) Top Speed 217mph (limited)

    This gif maker is funny, it appears to merge random words together for the file name. First gif isn't mine, so credit to whoever made it. Anywho...observe the peerless corner play by Revis last week. This was probably the best pure show of coverage skill this season, i'd happily put this tape up against anyone. By my counts, I had him down as being thrown at 9 times, surrendering 2 catches for 17 yards, with 4 PBUs. http://www.gfycat.com/BiodegradableShyBullmastiff Here Tate tries a bunch of stop and go type shenanigans. Some things to note here -Look how square Revis keeps his shoulders off the snap. He doesn't budge until Tate is off the LOS, and keeps his hips and shoulders to the play. No reason to panic and open the gates, but you see it all the time from lesser players. -Throughout the stem of the route, just outstanding fluidity and reactive athleticism from Revis. Mirrors Tate - whose a shifty dude in his own right - with such ease. His foot speed and hip fluidity is elite. - Notice the subtle use of his hands throughout the route. It's not holding and it's not interference unless you are a pussy. But it allows him to mirror the route while staying home and playing very aggressively. You can see there is no clench of the jersey or anything like that, but he uses his arm to keep close an squeeze the route towards the sideline. -Once Tate stems the route, it's game over. Revis flips his hips, instantly finds the football, and disrupts the play. http://www.gfycat.com/OnlyDapperBronco Here's another play, this one out of a 1 cover shell. McCourty is shaded way over to the far hash, so he's not going to be of much help to Revis. Doesn't matter. -Off the snap, DET tries to get NE with a rub concept. DEN does this a million times a game. It's not legal, but whatever. Revis is smart enough to work over the screen - the exact opposite of what Aqib did in last year's AFCCG. He ran under the rub, and Welker decided to torpedo him. - He uses the distance he's bought (by working over the rub) to eye the backfield. This is usually a big "no no" but again, his positioning allows him to take chances that v few corners can take. -Again, notice how he subtly pinches the route towards the sideline. He did this against AJ Green to perfection. -Ball's in the air, he finds it, flips his hips, and is far closer to the play than Tate ever is. He's playing WR here, basically. I haven't written too much about Revis this year, for the most part his play speaks for itself. But I really wanted to note some of this stuff, last week he was off the charts.
