  2. Is Mike Thomas A 'Tier 1' Wide Receiver?

    Fitz last few years has brought down his average but besides that when he was in his prime his adot was more like 12-13, thomas this year was sub 8. thats a fairly significant difference, you may want to try a different comparison. Wes Welker maybe? No ones saying thomas isnt a tier 1 wr because he isnt an elite deep threat, its because he doesnt run deeper routes, almost at all. You can say well he doesnt need to cause hes so good with eh short ones, well those are easier to complete so youre not really helping his case tbh.
  3. 2019 free agency targets

    More than playmakers? I have my doubts...
  4. NBA GDT | 18'-19 |

    butler is extremely good, but paying him a 4 or 5 yr max sounds horrible
  5. Is Mike Thomas A 'Tier 1' Wide Receiver?

    You would have a difficult time arguing that Payton, Brees, Kamara and Thomas should not be considered among the "best" people at their respective jobs across the NFL. I'm not sure why mentioning any of those people in those specific contexts would be outrageous or only a product of homerism. As for the rest of the stuff, blah, that's just typical nonsense that comes up with threads go forever long and the argument is exhausted
  6. EDGE Free Agents

    Barr is a freak athlete, aye?
  7. MMA Thread

    Yea I expect him to roll but Masvidal isn't a chump either. Till has to make weight or this is his last go at WW
  8. 2019 Draft Prospects

    Yeah he was one of my later round sleepers. I don't have many in the DT class now. Sleepers: Terry Beckner/Missouri (2nd-3rd) Charles Omenihu/Texas (3rd-4th) Greg Gaines/Washington (3rd-4th) Daniel Wise/Kansas (4th-5th) Demarcus Christmas/FSU (4th-6th) Marquise Copeland/Cincinnati (5th-7th) Logan Hunt/Georgia Southern (6th-7th) *More of a tweener DE/DT Byron Cowart/Maryland (6th-7th) *More of a tweener DE/DT & while I like the potential of these guys, I don't feel 100% that any of them are going to be great in the NFL. They're mainly just really talented players that haven't put it together yet. Gaines is the only really refined player on this list, but he's very limited athletically and is simply a true anchor in the run game. Did Lorenzo Neal from Purdue declare? I really like him as a versatile NT. He's not ever going to be considered a pass rusher, but he's also no slouch in that department for a 315+ pounder.
  9. Jaguars hire John DeFlippo as OC

    How so? We likely won't have Bortles or Kessler on the team next year
  10. #1 pick - who do the Cardinals draft?

    I'm not sure I'd call Golden a "Really Good Player" I'd call him an effort player; He isn't the kind of guy who is going to beat a tackle off the edge and hit the QB inside 2/2.5 seconds. he is a guy who will clean up player, make plays with effort and benefit from other players around him creating Havoc. AZ need to be careful of creating two guys off the edge, but not having any interior push.
  11. Is Mike Thomas A 'Tier 1' Wide Receiver?

    Yeah he didn't put up a huge game, BUT in the 2nd matchup which was considerably more important, he put up 80+ yards and 2 touchdowns. This is where stats don't tell the whole story. The Saints were essentially shut down in the 1st half. Michael Thomas played a huge role in the Saints coming back in the 2nd half of that game allowing them to be in a position to win it up until the fiasco that was the "Minneapolis Miracle". https://www.neworleanssaints.com/video/thomas-route-turns-around-rhodes-on-23-yard-catch-20253568 Michael Thomas turning Rhodes around That is Thomas beating Rhodes in man coverage for a touchdown. This is also a good example of looking at stats without context to the game. Those 2 catches you reference were key in going up 7-0 on the Saints first drive as he accounted for a large part of the yards on that 81 yard drive. He also accounted for 2 catches on another scoring drive. Hard to have catches on Rhodes in that 3rd game when Rhodes didn't play in this game though.
  12. Former Broncos 1st round QB Paxton Lynch signs with Seahawks

    Yea I was thinking the same about Sanchez just today. Why was Lynch drafted so high and flopped so hard so fast?
  13. I don’t believe you
  14. BJ Upton is BJ Upton again

    @mission27 no Fausto Carmona? smh
  15. Dodgers trade Puig, Kemp, & Wood to the Reds

    Don't live down there but my understanding is that's a fight between the cable companies. One doesn't want to raise rates or something so they won't pay for their channel and it cuts off a lot of the fans from watching on TV. I could be wrong but I think that's what it's about.
  16. EDGE Free Agents

    I don't think that's fair. Perry was very good and now his body doesn't work anymore. So two first round picks: Two hits. You can't expect anything from mid-late round EDGEs generally.
  17. EDGE Free Agents

    yes but in modified Julian dates so it's easy to subtract
  18. EDGE Free Agents

    Correct. They never run it again.
  19. And all reports I have seen are the Brett Rypien did the best of all EWSG QB's. I really hope he goes to any team but the Cowboys and Redskins.
  20. So not facing Flacco(1-4 vs Brady), Dalton(1-2), and the Dumpster fire in Cleveland(1-6) is why the Patriots are dominant? Not facing Rivers (0-6 vs Brady regular season), Luck (0-4), or Manning (3-9) twice a year is easy for Brady? ITS EASY FOR THE OTHER GUYS TO NOT FACE BRADY TWICE A YEAR! The league removed Manning from Brady's division in 2002 to give him a chance. The put him with Cap Hell Jacksonville 2 years in to a 4 year suck They put him with expansion Houston They put him with 7-9 Tennessee who recovered in 2002-03 before sucking the next 2 years. Your point would actually hold water if you meant Manning, or Roethlisberger, or Rodgers. There is an AFC Division that all teams are welcome to join. Its called the playoffs. Brady is 23-7 in that AFC division Next Up: We learn how Wayne Gretzky was just a product of the Smythe Division!
