  2. lmao. Zombie gold spraypaint helmet. Spooky as ****.
  3. I guess maybe that reputation is healing...But it's hard to feel like it's really anywhere close to actually "healed", with other stuff that's going on. Between Calais comments on the way out, Dennard contract falling apart, Yan refusing to play for this team, etc. I'm glad Schobert apparently talked to people who have had a good impression of playing in Jacksonville/London...and seems to be excited to play for Wash and Co. There are certainly Jaguars and former Jags who i'd imagine would speak highly of the organization. But at the end of the day, it has a whiff of hyping the hand that feeds. Not many players are gonna come out and straight up say, "i just signed here because they offered the most money in a low tax state".
  4. The (Potential) 2020 Draft RB Class

    Darrynton evans is going to be a good pro. I love his feet and his short area quickness. He accelerates through his cuts. This is going to be a weird comp but he reminds me of deebo samuel with the ball in his hands. Very similar builds (deebo 5'11 215, 4.48, 39 vert, 15 reps vs Evans 5'10 205, 4.41, 39 vert, 20 reps) and both guys run HARD. That doesnt mean evans has the most power, but he attacks the hole when he gets the ball in his hands and seems to slash defenses. I love the explosiveness. I also like his length. He has very good decision making. Its not just his vision but how he processes information. A lot of guys with speed always try and outrun people when they feel trapped. He tends to be able to take a step to the outside, force a defender to take a step, then immediately cuts upfield with his head down trying to fall forward. I love that. its the quick decision that can be the difference between a punt and a first down. I didnt see him do that well catching passes out of the backfield, but it didnt seem like his QB was really looking for him all that often in that situation either, so TBD. I do think he looks like he will be very good out of the backfield. The more I watch the guy the more I love him. Hes really really really talented. What round will he be picked? Id take him in the 4th for the niners if we had a 4th lol. hopefully hes there in the 5th. Probably not though. could even go in the third to be honest. I didnt even look at moss, because evans is the guy I want now lol Hes going to end up on the cardinals though now that I want him.
  5. 2020 Draft Thread

    I have said a few times, I want a top flight running back. I am starting the bandwagon for Darrynton evans is going to be a good pro. I LOVE his feet and his short area quickness. He accelerates through his cuts. This is going to be a weird comp but he reminds me of deebo samuel with the ball in his hands. Very similar builds (deebo 5'11 215, 4.48, 39 vert, 15 reps vs Evans 5'10 205, 4.41, 39 vert, 20 reps) and both guys run HARD. That doesnt mean evans has the most power, but he attacks the hole when he gets the ball in his hands and seems to slash defenses. I LOVE the explosiveness. That doesnt just mean he runs really fast in a straight line. The guy has football speed. That means he can change directions like very few humans can. I also like his length. He has very good decision making. Its not just his vision but how he processes information. A lot of guys with speed always try and outrun people when they feel trapped. He tends to be able to take a step to the outside, force a defender to take a step, then immediately cuts upfield with his head down trying to fall forward. I love that. its the quick decision that can be the difference between a punt and a first down. You cant hesitate in that scenario. Thats having a natural feel for football. Love it I didnt see him do that well catching passes out of the backfield, but it didnt seem like his QB was really looking for him all that often in that situation either, so TBD. I do think he looks like he will be very good out of the backfield. The more I watch the guy the more I love him. Hes really really really talented. What round will he be picked?? want want want. So everyone hop on the bandwagon. He is a perfect scheme fit and would be a great pairing with mostert and whichever of breida/mckinnon make the roster.
  6. 2020 Off-season Discussion Thread

    **** Shelby Harris back to the Broncos on a 1 year deal for $3.25m. We are now down to 6 real options: Snacks – pff 63.2 Corey Liguet – pff 67.5 Xavier Williams - pff 31.1 (historically good, had a down year) Timmy Jernigan – pff 65.9 Christian Covington – pff 65.7 Derek Wolfe – pff 68.5 And possibly these two who are more DE's than DT's and not sure would work in a 3-4 Everson Giffen – pff 77.6 Adrian Clayborn – pff 71.7
  7. Panthers releasing QB Cam Newton

    But Jameis' does? He of many turnovers, sloppy mechanics and timing, long ball mcgee launching things into the stands, and no real mobility to speak of? Cam certainly isn't the "Jay Gruden Archetype QB" by any means...but i feel like there are at least more aligned attributes to work with there. Moreover...Even if i could see any sort of fit in a Gruden offense with Winston, i don't really see any point to signing Jameis Winston in Jacksonville. He stinks, and he's basically always stunk. If Minshew isn't the guy...either bring in someone like Cam who could be good if he's rehabilitated his foot well enough and is healthy, or takes us right back to Minshew. Or make it a young guy out of the draft to start grooming. The Jaguars aren't winning anything with Jameis Winston under center in the short term...and he's not a project anymore. That's not the future. We don't need to do Trent Edwards all over again, but with a less likeable off-field personality and controversy.
  8. Goodell wants draft to continue outside Team venues

    Jaguars basically ahead of the curve for once.
  9. BARRETT 5.0 3-RDS W/TRADES

    Lamb and Gladney for San Francisco works for me - well done!
  10. NFL Draft: What do we need NOW and LATER

    Yeah. I like Wirfs, but the case for someone like Nelson Top-5/10, is a pretty unique one. I mean...if that is what you're getting, sure...i guess i can kinda understand it. But he was such a rare G prospect. Like...truly generational, in that i can't think of anyone else even on that tier as a prospect...and we honestly may not see another G prospect of that caliber for 20 years. Wirfs as a prospect, ain't that. Even then...you've still gotta have the bookends at least reasonably sorted, or your stellar guard is gonna get exposed.
  11. The (Potential) 2020 Draft RB Class

    I like his build. He is thick. Very powerful. runs with good pad level. I dont like his feet though, felt a touch slow for the pros. He did have times where the feet looked up to par, but there were more plays when I didnt like his lateral movement or agility. He definitely looked great when he was able to find the crease and explode through it. Was great at running downhill. He can get to the outside but hes not a guy that will take a long play to the house. He is more of a doubles and triples guy rather than a guy that hits homeruns. I am fine with that, just saying he doesnt have top end speed or the ability to change directions once he hits his top gear. That is part of the reason I dont like his feet, he isnt a guy who could cut more than once and maintain speed, but he does make up for that with power. There were times when it felt like the vision was lacking or that he was overthinking it at times. when the crease wasnt there it was hard for him to do much other than try and plow his way through guys. There wasnt enough wiggle for the modern day game imo. Im sure thats why his agent told him not to do the cone drills. He seems like he is slow laterally. I dont want a runner without short area quickness. a huge part of that is your feet and how you get in and out of your breaks. I do like that they have him pass block. Not enough college runners have that experience. thats definitely something the niners need, a RB who can catch passes and also pass block. Vaughn seems like he will be adequate at both. What round is he slated to be drafted in? Id say hes a 5th rounder. Doesnt feel like the guy the niners draft tbh

  14. Official 2020 QB Thread

    So you take issue with Burrow fast-passing his progress as a QB in one year, but think Sutton can go from bust to best young WR in the league in less than a single offseason?

    Enough to make it “interesting.”

  17. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    https://www.biospace.com/article/vir-biotechnology-ids-2-monoclonal-antibodies-against-the-covid-19-coronavirus/ This really should be called SARS-2. Its very very similar to SARS-1. This company has identified an antibody that tags the virus of SARS-1 so that other cells come to kill them and realized it works for SARS-2 as well. That gives them a gigantic head start on developing a treatment / vaccine. I have been told that you cannot make the vaccine without first making the necessary antibodies to imprint it, so to speak. So this is step 1. All of these other malaria Ebola drugs are a pipe dream. Tweaked versions or drug cocktails containing those drugs are not / were never the answer. The answer is SARS / MERS drugs. 3-5 months before human trials. That is very fast. this would be huge. One thing that is so invigorating about this pandemic is that we have the totality of our collective brainpower focused soley on collectively crushing SARS-2. thats pretty cool.
  18. Tyler Ervin back on 1 year deal

    Is Russel Wilson a prototype QB? Steve Young? Pretty Broad definition of a Prototype, yeah? I could argue Rodgers isn't the prototype QB, or at least wasn't coming out.
  19. Official 2020 QB Thread

    His track record on QBs in the draft is pretty amazing in the last few years. In 2016 he had Carson Wentz rated above Jared Goff as the top QB in the draft. Not that radical but he gets credit for being right. In 2017 he had Patrick Mahomes rated as the top QB and was showering him with what looked at the time as over the top praise that has now become prophetic. And finally in 2018 he had Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen rated as the top QBs in the draft ahead of Sam Darnold who everyone else loved. In fact at the time he was most critical of Darnold and Rosen while most of the rest of the media were saying they were the best QBs in the draft. When it comes to QBs in the NFL Draft Chris Simms has been arguably the best evalutor in the media. I don't know many media heads that had Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen rated as the top 2 QBs in 2018 or were calling Patrick Mahomes the second coming of Aaron Rodgers ahead of the 2017 draft.

    How many moves do you think I have?
  21. JLA Mafia Game Thread DAY 3

    I guess @Ragnarok could be it too, but I doubt it
  22. Tyler Ervin back on 1 year deal

    Well prototype QB's have won 54 of 54 Super Bowls. That's a pretty good %
  23. Official 2020 QB Thread

    Actually I can see why he isn't impressed with Tua. Even when healthy I was not enamored with him. He's undersized with a medicre arm at best. Rarely saw the sort of throws we see every Sunday from NFL QBs from him. Also he had such elite talent around him that he would throw short 5 yard passes that would go 80 yards. I never saw the hype with Tua. His injury history only makes taking him in the 1st round even more ridiculous.
  24. JLA Mafia Game Thread DAY 3

    Wasn't me, the motivator 100% needs to come forward though. Also heads up, I'm driving up to chicago to see family for person reasons so I'll be in and out.
  25. JLA Mafia Game Thread DAY 3

    I'll be on around 1 or so.
  26. Ramsfan24 Mock Draft 4

    The question though is does McVay want a change of pace back or 3 backs who when they come in can do the same things? I personally think the latter but we'll see.
  27. Official 2020 QB Thread

    No because intangibles matter as well. FTR I was never high on JaMarcus. His weight was a big concern to me. When I see a high level athlete like him who doesn't have the discipline to be in shape then it sends a huge red flag to me about his commitment to the craft. I was similarly not high on Dwayne Haskins for the same reason. He wasn't as fat as JaMarcus but he had a soft pudgy body that showed he was dedicated to being at peak physical condition. I took that as a sign of a poor work ethic.
