    That rounds it up guys, appreciate the back and forth and some surprising good words considering this is generally a very sensitive thing to do with so many ways to look at it. The good news is, if your team is ranked low, there's a very, very good chance I'm completely wrong here. Each person who enjoys the draft would probably have a completely different order, that's what makes it fun.

    37 is a little young for us, but I am sure Gruden can coach him up.

    Cool scenario. But Kaep runs all over that defense in Green Bay, San Fran, London, Australia, or Mars. They had absolutely no answer for the read-option.

    Strongly disagree with your opinion. The picks were so excting. I was very happy with the broadcasts. And yea.. replay is a thing.

    Datone Jones was a valuable player in 2015. He was a big part of what made our pressure package so deadly. The ability to line up Jones/Clay/Perry/Peppers was a seriously intimidating front group and spared Daniels having to play too many snaps. There was a role on this team for Datone Jones if he wanted it. He just didn't want it. You can call that a failed evaluation of character, but when college coaches are giving guys 2 thumbs up and you only get to interview him a few times, it's tough. Guys change between the ages of 21 and 25 even when they're not handed millions of dollars. Worthy blew out his knee the last game of his rookie year and it cost him something. He was always a snap jumper/first step guy. Losing that first step killed him. He's still bouncing around the league as a big body but 2nd round DTs can't lose what makes them special. Khyrie Thorton is another guy who just didn't want it. There's a very serious lack of guys with NFL athletic profiles at the DT position. it's not like WR or CB where there's a billion guys of that body-type and you're splitting hairs for skill. If you're going to draft a DT with high upside in the 3rd round, you're going to have to accept those risks. Additionally, third round picks have a "cut before second contract" rate around 55% IIRC. Not saying it isn't a bad pick, but you can't complain about the lack of superstar talent on defense and then bash the high risk midround picks for a failure of philosophy. +++ Regarding the Hyde playing in the slot in 2013, who was supposed to play there? Hayward was "healthy" enough to play in 3 games. The DB rotation was Shields/Tramon/Hayward/House/Hyde. Hyde was supposed to be bouncing between slot and safety all season. Then Hayward got IR'd and all of a sudden you needed a slot CB. CB is more important than safety, so the better talent goes to CB. In an ideal world, Hayward stays healthy, all three of our CBs look good, Hyde carries heavy reps at Safety and starts to stand out while not being bounced from spot to spot. In an ideal world though, we don't stack injuries at OLB such that Andy Mulumba is playing 29% of snaps, BJ Raji doesn't phone it in for good, Tramon Williams and AJ Hawk don't lose their legs, and we don't lose 10 games of Matthews and Perry. There were a lot of things that impacted the 2013 season outside of coaching and talent acquisition. Hayward was never healthy for us. He played well while he was here, but the team kept getting injured, lacked speed, and it was apparent that Hayward couldn't play unprotected on the boundary. When you're trying to get faster and more durable, guys like Hayward get moved on from. Drafting Rollins and Randall was supposed to solve that issue. Rollins never really looked the part, but I don't know how you evaluate him considering he was never god damn healthy. Looking at the athletic profile and what guys (admittedly older guys) tend to lose with the achilies injury, his career is probably over. Randall played well at times, but was inconsistent, had his own health issues, and apparently was a locker room cancer? He's now gone as well. Dom Capers is a good coach. I know that's a controversial statement, but it's true. With him as DC, we averaged 15th in points allowed over the course of his 9 seasons. When you don't have consistent pieces to work with, it's hard to formulate anything. I can see why Capers would like guys like Hawk and Pickett, at least they were there every day. When the wheels were starting to fall off in 2016 and 2017, take a look at the god damn injury reports. In both years the secondary depth chart and the listing of out/probable was a freaking one to one match. Luck plays a big part in these things. He needed to go, I don't dispute that, too many poor seasons (even if they're not entirely his fault) and guys start to lose credibility and confidence. Sometimes a new voice is needed. Thompson wasn't a bad GM either. He was a very good GM. He was also a very conservative GM. He was a big believer in the importance of staying the course and maximizing opportunities. We caught some lousy luck with upshoot teams shining bright and then fading quickly in SF/Seattle (and to a lesser extent Carolina). We had terrible injury luck both to the defense and to Rodgers. We had an optics problem with a relatively maxed out roster and a lack of Free Agent signings, both due to inside interest and playing in a frozen subtropolis. It's easy to write off all of the previous seasons problems on guys that are gone. Fans of teams do it all the time, but you're downplaying the impact that lousy luck had on these teams. That luck may very well stick with the current administration. If King, Perry and Alexander go down this year for significant periods of time, we're going to have the same defensive problems that haunted us the previous few seasons.

    I don't understand why anyone cares. 99% of fans aren't standing at home, cameramen aren't standing at the stadium, and hundreds if not thousands of fans are wandering around the stadium during the anthem. Honestly, caring if they stand or not is the height of meaningless distractions. I just don't get the uproar.

    Back by extremely unpopular demand, I'm going to rank this year's draft classes by worst to best. This is an almost pointless exercise, so try not to be too upset if your team is ranked low. As we all know these front office guys and GMs don't know what they are doing and some random guy on the internet is here to tell us all where they went wrong. This year I've tried to take value into consideration, focusing on what team's went into the draft with and what they emerged with after three days of drafting. So any teams that picked up picks this year and next year, plus any players acquired during the draft is part of the equation. Obviously as well as value, positional and position, it's important to consider the players that were selected, how teams filled their needs and everything else I am not remotely qualified to give any valuable opinions on. Rankings: 1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2. Chicago Bears 3. Green Bay Packers 4. Baltimore Ravens 5. New York Jets 6. Dallas Cowboys 7. Cincinnati Bengals 8. Denver Broncos 9. Washington Redskins 10. Arizona Cardinals 11. Cleveland Browns 12. Jacksonville Jaguars 13. Indianapolis Colts 14. Atlanta Falcons 15. New York Giants 16. Miami Dolphins 17. Buffalo Bills 18. New England Patriots 19. LA Chargers 20. Carolina Panthers 21. Tennessee Titans 22. Minnesota Vikings 23. LA Rams 24. Pittsburgh Steelers 25. San Francisco 49ers 26. Philadelphia Eagles 27. Oakland Raiders 28. Detroit Lions 29. Houston Texans 30. Seattle Seahawks 31. Kansas City Chiefs 32. New Orleans Saints

    2 years and 2 months ago I packed my car and drove across the country from NC to AZ. Today I formally got an offer for a 35% increase and a management role within my team (already accepted). Pretty stoked, and I'm glad there has finally been a payoff for my move. Had some tough declines last year for other positions (consultant based), but this opportunity really opens the door for the future for both consulting or management. Less than 4 years ago I was a temp trying to just get my foot in the door. Still feels a bit surreal.

    I've been posting here off and on for about 12 years. Moderated for a while. Was never a 30+ post per day kinda guy. I always read more than I post. But somehow, I have 10,000 posts on an Internet forum. And you are reading post #10,000. Use this topic to post what brought you here, why you stay here, and maybe why you spend way too much time in here. I'll go first. I love football. But more than football, I love my Browns. My dad instilled it in me at a young age. I have instilled it into my son (who is now finishing his freshman year in college, for those who have known me for a while). Anyway, I always liked that this forum wasn't a complete dumpster fire like most others. I know we joke about the mods, but the standard that is set here by Webby and others makes it a much better place to be imo.

    If I am Gute I have that pick in an envelope in a briefcase in a safe behind a locked door and I won’t take it out until late April 2019. At that point, with the draft right in front of me, I start scheming how to use it to fleece some of the other kids.

    Damn I give up. I don't need to see LeBron win six championships to call him equal to Michael Jordan. He has continually raised his game to an epic level. I don't know what more he must do to be considered the goat. And if anyone can remember my post they would know I hate LeBron James but what the **** he is making every shot possible now and getting better than he has ever been in his life at this age.

    20 years old. Just such a ridiculous steal. You guys started at #6 and managed to get the best and youngest QB in the class. Take your time with him. There’s no rush. Let’s be honest, you aren’t winning the division as long as Brady is still around. Bring Sam along in time, get him receivers and a great line. The defense is already moving in the right direction. By the time you’ve done this and developed Darnold without hanging him out to dry, the following will be the case: - Tom Brady will have retired. - Josh Allen will be throwing the ball to your team four or five times each season. - Miami will still be a purgatory with no QB, no motivation and a set of players that prefer to party in the hot sun than play in the hot sun. The New York Jets have the AFC East of the 2020s in the palm of their hands. Well done.

    On a serious note, the first step to increase revenue - eliminate 1 preseason game, and extend the schedule to 18 weeks - with 2 weeks of byes per team, instead of 1. It doesn't create extra games - but it creates an extra week of TV revenue, and of course, more interest per game. It doesn't add extra games played, and it doesn't shorten true offseason time. It's a win-win for everyone IMO. Of course, that's probably why it will never happen, either.

    For the record, Avengers: Age of Ultron really came out bloated to me, where the only thing I enjoyed was the continuation of Stark's nightmare angle, and I did like the introduction of Vision & Scarlet Witch (and the hammer scene with him). I also never read a single Avengers comic in my youth (although I did read Civil War and Infinity Wars when I bought it for my now-teenage daughter used set), although I read Spidey, Batman & Superman comics (but not religiously). And I loved this movie. I absolutely hate it when the fanboy callout comes out. It's such a case of projection IMO - no need for that. A few observations about the criticisms: 1. Motivation - really? People can't figure out Thanos' motivation? It's only spelled out explicitly in the movie - he sees the universe as overcrowded, with finite resources. Unchecked, life will snuff itself out. It requires a check & balance - why he kills half of the population on the planets that he conquers. So when he runs into a ship filled with an entire population, we're supposed to question why he wouldn't wipe out half that ship, either? Criticizing a lack of explicit motivation is a HUGE reach. 2. Not showing Xandar - There are 5 stones. Do we need to see every stone collected? No. Does it somehow detract? No. 3 Defeating Loki/Thor - so we need to see how he was able to defeat them first? How is it not apparent how powerful Thanos is with showing how he crushed Hulk? Really? That's a criticism? 4. Thor - He wasn't part of the Avenger/Wakanda's defense plans, and he didn't have any comms - so it explains why he's there late, too (as the other Avengers are comm'd in). 5. Strange - there was 1 outcome that led to victory that he saw. This was it. It's not that hard to decipher. 6. Alternate ways to defeat Thanos from the past - again, though, none of those ideas cited are that simple. Any action in past changes the timeline with all sorts of unexpected outcomes. 7. No drama - man, no words. Honestly, it seems like the criticism boils down to "why didn't everything get explicitly explained?" to say the plot is trash. That's an awful, awful take. Plots are supposed to give enough to let audiences make proper inferences. Movies aren't supposed to spoon-feed every point so it's painfully obvious. Only shows meant for 5-year olds. This is a show for young adults & adults. Who are smart enough NOT to be spoon fed. SMH. Great story-telling actually allows people to discuss where they're asked to fill in the blanks. If it's done well, the projections can be made. If people can't make a logical connection, then fair enough. But it doesn't suddenly mean that if a plot actually acts the audience to make projections, then it's trash. Come on, this isn't Saturday morning cartoon TV. Honestly, if people didn't find it dramatic, or tragic at times, then I don't know what will impress them. That's fine, we all don't have to agree. This will be one of those times.
