  2. You Are Wrong About Lamar Jackson - Warren Sharp

    Has the strongest arm maybe ever. Has excellent athleticism. Is tough as nails and can absorb punishment. Has zero around him in Buffalo or in college. Allen makes some bad decisions, but the whole, "he can't throw accurately" thing is way overblown. He's a deep shot QB that won't pepper defenses underneath to preserve his completion percentage. Of course guys that take deep shots aren't gonna be as accurate. And Josh Allen was pretty darn good for the Bills last year. Lamar was good for the Ravens too, but unlike Lamar, Allen doesn't seem mechanically broken. Allen needs to improve his mental processing speed. Lamar needs to improve from a fundamental standpoint way more than Allen does. Maybe both bust. Maybe both become great. But their on-field struggles are not coming from an identical issue. I am a big Josh Allen fan and I think he's going to be a star in this league in time.
  3. Preseason AP Poll released

    There's a lot of chatter around here suggesting the same thing. I think UC will get there at some point but I just don't feel it's that time just yet.
  4. TCMD League SIM - Official Signup

    I dont have that kind of skill.
  5. Packers @ Raiders - Preseason Week 3 GDT (O Canada)

    You can always tell the mood in the the forum depending on the time the GDT comes out. Raiders are trending up with it coming out on Tuesday. That being said i doubt much is shown because we do play each other again later in the season.
  6. You Are Wrong About Lamar Jackson - Warren Sharp

    NOT if you're asking a QB to run the ball 15 times a game AND NOT if someone can't/doesn't evolve. Ask Robert Griffin, Derek Anderson, Rick Mirer, and others who couldn't evolve their games. I agree. And year to year, a QB especially had better EVOLVE/progress. That's literally what I said. Also, CONTEXT matters. I said that it's not sustainable in terms of longevity. There's a historical precedent here for QB's who run the ball THAT much. If Cam Newton, who is WAY bigger/stronger than Lamar can't do it, neither can Lamar. See: Vick, RGIII, Cunningham, Steve Young (early years), etc. Running the ball 15 times a game isn't sustainable. Quit taking my words/quote, which I was kind enough to post again for you, out of context. It's not an assumption to say that he WON'T be healthy 10 years from now IF HE RUNS THE BALL 15 TIMES A GAME! To argue otherwise is asinine. I 100% agree. Most likely, yes. That said, if he shows great improvement throwing the ball consistently, especially from the pocket, some of those questions may start to get answered. Over 20 games of a sample size is a lot better/more of an indicator than 6. 4th time you took my quote out of context. LOL.
  7. NFL network: Jaylon Smith new deal

    I need more coffee in my life.
  8. The helmet that Brown wants is on the banned list because it doesnt meet the safety standards of the NFL, correct? Assuming that's correct, arent they doing the right thing by denying him the ability to use a helmet not deemed safe enough to use in games?
  9. 2019 NFC North Fantasy Football (DRAFT THREAD)

    Cody Latimer NYG WR @Bigbear72 is OTC
  10. Preseason AP Poll released

    MSU has 0 QBs. I'm not worried about a team w/ 0 QBs at home. Could they win the game? Sure, anyone can win at any time. Reloading is one thing, yes, but they lost a lot and some coaches (who came to our side). We can assume one of the young backs will do well, absolutely. We can assume anything but that doesn't mean it's the case. Again, my whole comment is predicated on Fields living up to his hype. If he falters, we will have a bad year. If he lives up to his potential though, we could certainly be in the mix for the playoffs.
  11. 2019 Hard Knocks: Oakland Raiders

    I was hoping to see more of the defense in that game. They completely shut down Murray, I’d love to have seen more trash talking swagger. The defense is obviously the weakness of the team and I’d love to see them play with confidence. I could honestly do with less AB considering how much we already see of him in the media.
  12. 53 Man Roster Predictions 2019 Edition

    While it might happen, I have a hard time seeing Lazard making the roster over Kumerow. I think talking about Moore making the roster at this point is a lost cause unless he starts turning camp/ the preseason on it's head. He hasn't shown anything that would suggest that he isn't a practice squad caliber WR. His hands are as bad as any WR's we've rostered over the last 10 years and he's shown a level of ineptnesss not being able to correct the issue in year 2.
  13. In his defense, best case scenario he was "only" an accomplice, accessory to murder, obstructed justice, purgered himself on the stand, and willfully destroyed evidence (Blood was found in his limo after he fled the scene and it's a shame they never could find that white suit/tuxedo).
  14. Ryan Allen released

    And what I mean is Gostkowski sucks when it counts. The scary part is he is shaky on extra points now too.
  15. You Are Wrong About Lamar Jackson - Warren Sharp

    That's where I'm at. And no I didn't have him as the 2nd best QB like you did, but I saw him as a fringe top 10 pick based purely on potential. But after seeing just how God awful some of the throws he made last year, I can't in good conscience keep my opinion that he would be a potential stud. And I'm a Browns fan but I don't discriminate based on that. I thought the Ravens and the Steelers had great drafts this past April. Calling out Lamar Jackson for not being able to throw is calling a spade a spade. I could care less about what analytics tell us. Football success isn't measured through random formulas some guy made up in his basement. The ugly throws that Lamar Jackson made last year made me want to give up on him. Truth be told, I was rooting for Lamar. I watched his first start with hope that he would rip it up and give us the kinds of highlights that nobody else before him had. But that's just not gonna happen. It's a bit harsh to say, "he sucks," but he's certainly not ever going to be a good passing QB if you ask me.
  16. Sony made a ton of money with Venom with no Spiderman in it. Imagine now if they did put Spidey in it.
  17. Matrix 4 is happening

    Gloria Foster passed away during the start of filming, so they had to re-cast
  18. Training Camp 2019 news and discussion.

    I actually agree. I think he thinks he won in this situation and imo if he were to be healthy all year and statistically have his worst season, imo it would prove otherwise once and for all.
  19. Matrix 4 is happening

    Part of the reason the sequels sucked is they tried to introduce too many characters with grumpy demeanors who wore sunglasses inside.
  20. No, because his helmet wasn’t technically on the “banned list” since it didn’t get tested until just recently. Once the other players’ helmets got on the banned list, they got a year grace period. That’s what Brown wants. But yeah, all the NFL would have to do is say that the players were given until 2019 to use one of the approved helmets (worded specifically that way, opposed to not using one of the banned helmets) and then Brown loses his argument.
  21. Patriots WR Josh Gordon reinstated

    I get what you're saying but stupid people dont magically stop being stupid.
  22. Formerly The Gnat's Dynasty League - Drafting

    Like I did in my league's discussion thread, we can list any 2020 trades in the OP of the new thread for tracking purposes.
  23. Ryan Allen released

    Except Gost has been a medocre.
  24. NFL network: Jaylon Smith new deal

    I thought you could re-sign/renegotiate a rookie's contract after 3 years. Zeke only has 3 years.
  25. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    I don't want to cook charcoal, I want to cook food
