  1. Past hour
  2. To be honest this is the first time I’ve ever heard of that role. *shrug*
  3. You Are Wrong About Lamar Jackson - Warren Sharp

    Russell Wilson's age 21 season was his last at NC State. Lamar Jackson's age 21 season was his first in the NFL. Please actually look at what Russell Wilson did at NC State. I'll make it easy for you: https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/russell-wilson-1.html
  4. Well, if Danger was the recruiter, only one of this group is Erik, and then they’re done if Malf truly blocked Danger on N1. If one of them is the recruiter, then we have 2 others outstanding. Bcb seems the most likely based on targets: he would take Danger, VMD, and likely someone on the sensor after Rick died. That’s his Cult strat to a T.
  5. Predict the Week 1 Roster

    Worrilow retired immediately after signing his contract
  6. 1[12]: Rashan Gary [EDGE; Michigan]

    That's ok - I'm not here for likes or pen pals. I feel the exact same way about the optimism based on nothing. There is something that keeps being ignored. Aaron Rodgers put up numbers in college. He produced at a high level. He dominated against his peers. Not to mention the QB position is a stand alone when it comes to evaluation. Aaron Jones put up numbers in college. Adams put up numbers. Nelson put up numbers. Yes, there are exceptions but they are few and far between. My concerns on Day 1 are the same concerns on Day 101. Palmy once said that there are two positions that flash immediately in the pros. Runners and rushers. Bill Parcells once said that until you do it, you can't do it. But I digress. There is plenty of college tape with Gary being stalemated one on one. His lack of production is well documented. It was a concern in every player evaluation. How does Tarzan never make a play ? Every excuse in the book has been made on Gary's behalf. We are talking about a Top 12 pick here. I hope he has dominating career, and I will be the first to say I was wrong. I'm simply not going to give the guy a pass and ignore the warning signs.

    This is absolutely incredible. People are concerned that a rookie doesn’t have a sack in three preseason games . And then when he has good reps they pick it apart. Its like they expect Gary to be an all-pro year one ! Hate to break it to you guys, he’s not. That doesn’t mean he’s not gonna be a heck of a player for us this year.
  8. So Swag your ability is to protect Danger and it was motivated, so you protected him 2 times on N1 and N2....but you also were able to use a 2nd move on N2 that killed Rags and Touch SWAG
  9. He has a point. Regardless of whether or not you liked it, Captain Marvel was not a good movie by any definition of conventional storytelling established since storytelling began. Captain Marvel's ending was among the worst in the history of superhero movies. Iron Man - Nearly dies, an entire street is destroyed, has to use his ingenuity, etc. Iron Man 2 - Takes a big hit to his image, gets people hurt, realizes consequences of what he is, etc. Iron Man 3 - I forget final battle. Think Pepper had to help him, think he was about to sacrifice himself or something? Thor - Has to become worthy to get his powers back, sacrifices self. Thor 2 - Forget. I think this one was equally as bad, and incredibly more criticized as a movie. Captain America - Literally sacrifices himself to win. And on and on and on and on and on and on and on. Captain Marvel? Girl power, I am unstoppable. It was a terrible, terrible, terrible, terrible, terrible, terrible, terrible ending. She literally crashes through an entire ship and then the blue guy LOL, NOPES, right out of there without fighting. It was an atrociously awful ending. The movie itself I thought was pretty good overall, but the ending was the worst in the MCU.
  10. 2 pre-season games, 17-game schedule, larger rosters game day rosters, 1 extra playoff week where the two extra teams play each other to move on (kinda like the MLB wildcard teams). That gives the other 8 teams an extra bye week before the playoffs (and probably taking off week 17 if they can) so they get plenty of chance to heal up/rest before the playoffs. Another bye week of sorts. Seems like a good compromise.

    It expired shortly after 10 am CST.
  12. Really there are only three votes that make any sense. VMD, BCB, or myself.
  13. You Are Wrong About Lamar Jackson - Warren Sharp

    I think Vick's punishment was for a different reason.

    I knew it was low, not that low though. Makes me scratch my head... was he injured at all? I don't recall any reports of it.
  16. Does anyone know if it is possible to stream the radio broadcast from a phone using the iHeartRadio app or the KFAN website? Or is it blacked out?
  17. You Are Wrong About Lamar Jackson - Warren Sharp

    Running QBs are always at a higher risk of getting injured than pocket passers. Does Kirk Cousins have great pocket presence? Matthew Stafford? Matt Ryan? Joe Flacco? Jared Goff? Blake Bortles? In fact, the counter argument can be made. The QBs that consistently (comparatively for a QB) either get injured (and play through it) or miss games, are usually the mobile guys. Wentz, Romo, Big Ben, Cam, Rodgers, Mariota, Luck, Tannehill, etc. Massive hits are perfectly legal if they’re above the QB’s knees and below the helmet. RG3 getting laid out by Ngata, IIRC, happened in bounds after RGIII became a runner. Nothing illegal about that play. And hits don’t have to be illegal or bone-breaking in order to take their toll. We’ve seen Cam tank hits early in his career, but now there’s always something with him. Same happened to Vick. It’s partly age, but the hits do their damage and make these guys seem older than they are. No, but those players never developed their game so that they could rely on their arms instead of their legs (sans 2010 Vick, who still ran a lot). Same with Kaepernick. Their running style wasn’t going to be something that’d last them their whole careers and it’ll be the same for Lamar unless his game develops. More wear and tear isn’t something that helps in this conversation, like you’re saying it does. Bro-science... A QB taking off and a running back running between the tackles are exceptionally different. And using a 1-to-1 with Barkley isn’t going to prove durability. I’d look at historical precedence of mobile QBs before just picking Barkley’s name out of a hat. It’s not just Vick and RGIII. It’s mobile QBs in general. Look at Wentz. Look at Rodgers. Look at Mariota. Look at Tannehill. Look at younger-Big Ben. The more you run and move around, the more susceptible you are to A) continuous punishment, and B) high speed collisions. Not really arguable. I didn’t say anything about Russell Wilson. I surmised that having a running, mobile QB is going to open up the risk of injury more so than it would having a pure pocket passer. Historical precedence backs that up. Nobody said he’s going to flame out of the league with injuries because of RGIII or Vick - they’re just examples of QBs that took punishment because their passing minds never developed.
  18. I liked both of those movies. Superman Returns is ok as a stand-alone family Superman. Both better than CM.

    MVS has gotten 8 snaps this preseason.
  20. Formerly The Gnat's Dynasty League - Drafting

    By my calculations it appears @bigjohnson2009 time has expired a couple hours ago?
  21. 2019 WR Corps

    That run/pass % on is gross, but fingers crossed that's sans Aaron Rodgers numbers. Love the personnel groupings. Not a fan of the McVay 90%+ 11 personnel or even Mac's 75% (though it did work). I understand 11 personnel is probably the most efficient personnel but I think the 50-60% range is good there. I like attacking defenses using variation. Attack all blades of grass at every level of the field and with multiple groupings of personnel.
