    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.

    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.

    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.

    We should just lock him up now then before he hurts somebody, right? For real though, you ever think about getting into law enforcement? We could really use somebody with super powers like yours.

    #8 - Portland QB: Derek Carr - Tyrod Taylor - Connor Cook RB: LeSean McCoy - Jay Ajayi - Ameer Abdullah - Paul Perkins - Peyton Barber WR: Davonte Adams - Jamison Crowder - Cameron Meredith - John Ross - Martavis Bryant - Tyler Boyd - Pharoh Cooper - Roger Lewis TE: Maxx Williams - Austin Hooper - Darren Fells LT: Alejandro Villanueva - Laremy Tunsil LG: Will Hernandez C: Ben Jones - Hroniss Grasu - Nick Easton - Spencer Pulley RG: Clint Boling RT: Donovan Smith DE: Emmanuel Ogbah - Za’Darius Smith - Daeshon Hall DT: Kawann Short - Michael Pierce - Hassan Ridgeway DT: DaQuan Jones - David Parry DE: TJ Watt - Mario Edwards - Breeland Speaks - Shaquil Barrett LB: Telvin Smith - Blake Martinez LB: Zach Brown - Elandon Roberts - Kenny Young CB: Desmond Trufant - Tavon Young CB: Jimmy Smith - Nate Hairston NB: Brandon Carr SS: Malcolm Jenkins - Daniel Sorenson FS: Glover Quin - Andrew Adams - Dexter McCoil I think Carr bounces back this year to his 2016 form and Portland is set at RB. Davante should be more highly thought of due his still producing decently after Rodgers was hurt and Crowder is a very good slot guy that should get a ton of targets from Alex Smith. However, I have no clue who their other outside WR is going to be, but Meredith is in a great position and Ross can’t do any worse. TE is a black hole as Hooper has flashed, but has shown minimal consistency. Carr will be protected by quite a good OL as Hernandez is a major upgrade. But, Donovan is largely a disappointment at OT and they have zero depth at OG. Portland has a very solid D from top to bottom. The starting DL for Portland will be very solid, especially if Watt makes that year 2 jump. There are serious issues with the depth as I’m hard pressed to find any suitable replacements if one of those guys gets hurt. LB will also be a position group of strength as both Telvin and Zach can fly around and cover quite well. Portland’s secondary will be difficult to throw on assuming Carr and Smith play up to past standards as Trufant, Jenkins, and Quin are all very good players. However, they have minimal depth in the secondary and one injury will expose them quite a bit. I could put them a bit higher based on their starters, but this team is so thin at so many positions that I have a hard time going above this. Plus, they need an pass catcher to step up at WR badly. #7 - Sydney QB1: Ben Roethlisberger - Dak Prescott - Davis Webb RB1: David Johnson - Melvin Gordon - Buck Allen - Aaron Jones FB - Andy Janovich WR1: Golden Tate - Brian Quick - Kamar Aiken - Chris Moore WR2: Calvin Ridley - Rishard Matthews WR3: Mike Williams - Kendall Wright TE: Jimmy Graham LT: Nate Solder LG: Cody Whitehair - Mike Iupati - John Miller C: Mitch Morse - BJ Finney - Max Tuerk RG: Brandon Brooks - Dan Feeney - Christian Westerman RT: La’el Collins LDE: Whitney Mercilus - Shane Ray - Shaq Lawson 3T: Malik Jackson - Malik McDowell - Bronson Kaufasi DT: Leonard Williams - Justin Jones - Jonathan Bullard RDE: Alvin "Bud" Dupree - Noah Spence WLB: Lavonte David MLB: Myles Jack - Gerald Hodges CB1: Marcus Peters - Ross Cockrell - Steven Nelson CB2: Carlton Davis - Donte Jackson - PJ Williams NB: Logan Ryan FS: Byron Jones - Ricardo Allen - Deon Bush - Matthias Farley SS: Reshad Jones - Johnathan Cyprien - Rayshawn Jenkins - Marcus Allen Sydney might be underrated as of right now. Big Ben is still very good, and their top two RBs are fantastic. If Mike Williams is healthy and develops, and Ridley is good as quickly as most expect him to be, then they will form an awesome threesome with Tate. Additionally, if Graham is fully healthy, he could be a force down the seam. There are a lot of questions for Sydney in the passing game, but a ton of potential. The should also have a very good interior OL as they have studs at LG, C, and RG plus depth on the interior. However, there are questions at OT as Solder always gets hurt and La’el has been meh. If any of Graham, Solder, or La’el goes down, Sydney is in trouble. Malik and Leonard are a beastly tandem, but there is jack squat behind them. While there is better depth on the edge, they don’t have the top tier players needed in BDL. That said, they have a number of edge rushers that could make that big leap forward. Jack and Lavonte are a great pair of LBs, Sydney just can’t afford for either to get hurt. Sydney looks great at DB as they have a great mix of legit veterans and younger developmental players. Ryan is very good in the slot, Peters is a stud, and one of Davis or Donte should win a starting job. Even though Byron is being moved to CB, he has been a very good FS and Reshad is as consistent as you’d like. If the WRs for Sydney develop and the OTs and Graham stay healthy, this offense could be very good. While there are major depth issues in the front seven on defense, the starters are good from front to back. They just need to stay healthy as there are some areas severely lacking depth. #6 Singapore Offense - 31 QB: Jimmy Garoppolo, Nathan Peterman RB: Le'Veon Bell, Kareem Hunt, Bilal Powell, Elijah McGuire, James Conner, Mark Walton Jr. WR1: Keenan Allen, Malcom Mitchell, Zay Jones WR2: Corey Davis, Phillip Dorsett, DaeSean Hamilton WR3: Mohamed Sanu, Trent Taylor, Ryan Switzer TE1: Eric Ebron, Jesse James, Ricky Seals-Jones LT: Joe Staley, Jason Spriggs LG: Lane Taylor, Andy Levitre, Laken Tomlinson C: Rodney Hudson RG: Josh Kline, Joshua Garnett RT: Marcus Cannon, Martinas Rankin Defense - 31 RDE: Everson Griffen, Taco Charlton, Tarell Basham, Stephen Weatherly NT: Damon Harrison, Linval Joseph DT: Aaron Donald LDE: Danielle Hunter, Derrick Morgan, John Simon, Duke Ejiofor, Kevin Dodd MIKE: Deion Jones, Jaylon Smith WILL: Shaq Thompson, Genard Avery SAM: Tyler Matakevich LCB: Trae Waynes, Vernon Hargreaves III, Isaac Yiadom RCB: Jalen Mills, Dre Kirkpatrick, Quenton Meeks Slot CB/S: Desmond King, Duke Dawson, Mackenzie Alexander FS: Marcus Maye, Duron Harmon, Jessie Bates III SS: John Johnson III, Quandre Diggs, Jayron Kearse Singapore has a franchise QB in Jimmy G. They also have a great rushing attack with Bell and Hunt. However, there are concerns in the passing game. Allen had a great year, and Sanu is a good #3, but they have no proven #2 WR or TE that scares a defense. Davis playing up to his draft status changes this dynamic very quickly. TE is a black hole as Ebron can’t catch and James doesn’t scare anyone. Singapore does have a very solid OL as Staley hasn’t shown serious signs of slowing down, Cannon was very good last year, and Taylor, Kline, and Hudson are solid if not spectacular. Singapore boasts one of the most formidable starting DLs in BDL with potentially very good depth on the Edge. However, with only 3 DTs on the roster, there is a concern about those big boys wearing down in a game. Jones is an awesome LB, but Singapore’s ability to cover at the LB position will come down to whether Shaq Thompson lives up to his early round status. CB is still a bit of a mess for Singapore as none of their LCBs or RCBs are trustworthy in BDL. NB looks a bit better with King or Dawson, and I do think Maye and Bates end up starting at safety to form a very, very nice tandem. While Singapore has a number of very impressive players, they desperately need Davis to step up to make their offense stress a defense as TE won’t give them much this year. Also, a lack of depth at DT, potential issues at LB outside of Deion, and questions at outside CB could limit their success this season. That said, they have plenty of cap space to fill some of these holes. #5 - Long Beach QB- Aaron Rodgers, Trevor Siemian, RB- Christian McCaffrey, Jamaal Williams, Damien Williams, DeAngelo Henderson FB- Aaron Ripkowski WR- DeAndre Hopkins, Devin Funchess, Sammie Coates, Adam Humphries WR- Marvin Jones, Cooper Kupp TE- George Kittle, Tyler Kroft, Nick O'Leary, CJ Uzomah, Dalton Schultz LT- Terron Armstead, George Fant, Ty Nsekhe, Roderick Johnson LG- Joe Thuney, Jamon Brown, Chaz Green, Jerald Hawkins C- Max Unger, RG- Andrew Norwell, Quinton Spain RT- Bryan Bulaga, Brandon Shell, David Sharpe Defense LE- Cam Jordan, Ronald Blair, Rasheem Green NT- Vita Vea, DJ Reader, Abry Jones UT- Javon Hargrave, Taven Bryan, Dean Lowry RE- Trey Flowers, Preston Smith, Sam Hubbard SLB- De’Vondre Campbell, Nick Vigil, Uchenna Nwosu MLB- Avery Williamson, Joe Schobert, Jayon Brown WLB- Jarrad Davis, Shaquem Griffin CB- Trumaine Johnson, Nick Nelson CB- Artie Burns, Bradley Roby Nickel- Tyrann Mathieu FS- Budda Baker, Darian Thompson SS- Landon Collins Any team with Rodgers is off to a good start, especially considering LB has a solid OL. I like their WR group as well, especially Hopkins and Kupp in the slot while Marvin is a good #2 IRL. Kittle was solid for SF later in the year and if he grows into a BDL-level starter, this passing game will be awesome. RB is a bit of a concern because McCaffrey is their only good one right now and he can’t handle a full workload. A thumping RB to go with him would go a long way. LB has the potential to have the 2nd best DL behind Berlin in a year. Cam is a monster, Flowers is underrated, and Vea/Bryan could become a nasty combo very quickly. I personally love what they added to their DL this draft. LB could be a plus as well. Davis is the new generation of LB and Shaq could be a nice WLB quickly as he has everything you want, except for…ya know. I want to see Nwosu as an off-ball backer and think he would be great as a SLB that blitzes semi-regularly. If one of Nelson, Burns, or Roby steps up as the #2 CB, DB is set as Trumaine and Mathieu are studs. Budda needs to improve as a FS, but if he does, he and Landon compliment each other very well. Rodgers is going to carry the LB offense, but I really love what they did on D this offseason. Vea, Bryan, Nwosu, and Griffin could make this defense just nasty, and I think it’s better odds that they do. #4 - Hawai’i QB - Russell Wilson RB - Saquon Barkley - Dion Lewis - Marshawn Lynch - Tarik Cohen - Kenneth Dixon - CJ Prosise WR - Antonio Brown - Josh Doctson WR - Stefon Diggs - Carlos Henderson WR - Pierre Garcon - Christian Kirk - Tajae Sharpe TE - Coby Fleener - Rico Gathers - Dallas Goedert - Nick Vannett LT - Andre Whitworth - Chuks Okorafor LG - Marshall Yanda - Isaac Seumalo C - Ryan Kelly - Pat Eflein RG - Brandon Schreff - Alex Lewis RT - Cam Robinson - Shon Coleman DE - Jadeveon Clowney - Arik Armstead - Keith Rivers - Kyler Fackrell DT - Deforest Buckner - Jordan Phillips - Sylvester Williams - Jaleel Johnson DT - Corey Liugent - Sheldon Rankins - Chris Wormley - BJ Hill DE - Frank Clark - Harold Landry - William Hayes - Tim Williams SLB - KJ Wright - Vince Biegel - Will Compton MLB - Brandon Marshall - Roquon Smith - Denzel Perryman WLB - Tahir Whitehead - Duke Riley CB - Casey Hayward - Terence Newman - D'Joun Smith CB - Marshon Lattimore - Will Redomond Slot CB - Bobby McCain - Mike Hughes FS - DJ Swearinger - Eric Weddle SS - Karl Joseph - Keith Tandy Wilson and Barkley might be the best backfield tandem in BDL next year. Lynch is irrelevant, but Cohen could be a perfect 3rd down compliment. Hawai’i also has a pair of awesome outside WRs, and if Kirk becomes a stud slot WR, they’ll be impossible to cover assuming Diggs can stay healthy. Also, Goedert should provide an immediate improvement at TE as Fleener sucks. Hawai’i could also boast one of the best OLs in BDL although Whitworth is old and both Kelly and Yanda are coming off injury. If this OL stays together, Barkley is everything we think, and Goedert/Kirk are good as rookies, this offense is scary. Their D also looks very good as they have a very solid DL plus a ton of depth with a number of young players that could step up. I believe they have 10 DL taken in the past three drafts which is fantastic. Roquan is a huge addition to their LB corps as he can pair with Wright, although they will need someone to pair with Roquan next year. At CB, Lattimore and Hayward are as good as any pair in BDL. If Hughes can play well enough for Casey to slide to NB without hurting the team, passing on this team becomes very difficult. Weddle is still playing at a decent level, and Joseph is a fine young SS. Saquon, Kirk, Goedert, Roquan, and Hughes. If Hawai’i hits on all five of those picks, then they should be near the top of all statistical categories. Although, I think they need one more year before they are really BizzBowl competitive. They have minimal cap though this year though, so odds are that one more season is needed. #3 - Seoul QB: Matt Ryan RB: Jordan Howard - Kenyan Drake - Wayne Gallman - Wendell Smallwood - Kalen Ballage WR: AJ Green - TY Hilton - Mack Hollins - Tyrell Willams - Antonio Callaway - Keke Coutee TE: Travis Kelce - Gerald Everett LT: Ronnie Stanley LG: Rodger Saffold - Isaac Asiata C: Alex Mack - David Andrews RG: Kevin Zeitler RT: Ryan Schraeder DE: Melvin Ingram - Bradley Chubb - Anthony Zettel DT: Gerald McCoy - Tim Settle DT: Geno Atkins - Vincent Valentine DE Derek Barnett - Jerry Hughes - Romeo Okwara LB: Dont’a Hightower - Jordan Hicks LB: Nigel Bradham - Oren Burks - Micah Kizer CB: Darius Slay - Quincy Wilson - LaDarius Gunter CB: Sidney Jones - Brendan Langley NB: Kendall Fuller - Robert Alford SS: Obi Melifonwu - Terrell Edmunds - Derrick Kindred FS: Marcus Williams - Justin Reid - Montae Nicholson One of the favorites to win the BizzBowl, Seoul has an explosive aerial attack with Green, Hilton, and Kelce. Of one of their young WRs can step up in the slot or if Everett becomes a legit threat, they will be almost impossible to cover. On top of this, they have one of the better young RBs in Howard with some good backups to give him a breather. To make their offense even more annoying, they have one of the most complete OLs in BDL with no major weaknesses. However, they have minimal depth on the OL and an injury or two could completely derail their season. Seoul also has the potential to have a top tier D in BDL. McCoy and Atkins are an awesome pair while Ingram, Barnett, and Chubb have the potential to be an elite DE threesome. Depth at DT is an issue as they have nothing proven behind their 2 DTs who would wear down over the course of the season. I am a big fan of their LB corps assuming Hightower and Hicks stay healthy. Bradham was very good last year and I hate Seoul for taking Burks in PFA. Now, there are a number of questions, but a lot of potential in the secondary. Slay is very good, Fuller is great in the slot, and if Sidney Jones is the first round talent we all assume, Seoul has a great CB group. Langley and Quincy also have the chance to grow being young players. Marcus Williams was a very good FS despite allowing the Minnymiracle and should get better in his second year. They just need someone to be functional at SS as Obi was a disaster last year. If they don’t get hit by injury at thin positions, and their secondary improves as it should, Seoul is going to be a very, very tough out. #2 - Gotham Offense QB - Carson Wentz - Mathew Stafford RB - Derrick Henry - Rashaad Penny - Kerryon Johnson - Doug Martin - Matt Breida WR - Demaryius Thomas - Amara Darboh - Geronimo Allison WR - Jarvis Landry WR - Chris Conley - Deon Cain - Marcel Ateman TE - Hayden Hurst - Jake Butt - Tyler Eifert LT - Jake Matthews LG - Andrus Peat - AJ Cann C - Maurkice Pouncey RG - Shaq Mason - Brandon Thomas RT - Mitchell Schwartz - Mike McGlinchey Defense DE - JJ Watt - Charles Harris NT/DT - Bennie Logan - Vernon Butler - PJ Hall DE/DT - Muhammad Wilkerson - Caleb Brantley - Austin Johnson - Deon Simon DE/OLB - Leonard Floyd - Kemoko Turay - Marquis Haynes LB - Benardrick McKinney - Navarro Bowman - Nick Kwiatkoski LB - Reuben Foster - Zach Cunningham - Su’a Cravens - Antonio Morrison CB - Xavier Rhodes CB - Josh Norman - Rasul Douglas CB - Jourdan Lewis - Xavien Howard FS - Justin Simmons - Damarious Randall - Clayton Geathers SS - Minkah Fitzpatrick - Kam Chancellor - Eric Reid Gotham is obviously set at QB, and they should be set at RB with Henry, Kerryon, and Penny. If those three don’t get it done, something went very wrong. Demaryius is solid but older, and Landry is the best slot WR in the game, but the rest of their weapons are lacking. Conley is all potential and Eifert is hurt 24/7. Although Hurst and Butt could give them a very nice two-TE set quick, fast, and in a hurry. I really like the Gotham OL as they don’t have a glaring weakness while McGlinchey provides a potential upgrade and saves cap room. If this D stays healthy and plays to potential, it’s just scary. They are deep on the interior with Butler, Brantley, and Hall as personal favorites, and if Harris steps up in year two, they have a 3rd edge rusher for depth. Likewise, they look to have a great LB corps. McKinney, Foster, and Cunningham are all talented and make for the best LB corps in BDL. Rhodes and Norman are shut down on the outside. And Jourdan Lewis could be a great fit for the slot as I am personally meh on Howard. Minkah should be starting over Kam sooner rather than later, and Simmons doesn’t scare anyone. Gotham needs its TEs to grow quickly in order to have the firepower to win the BizzBowl. They look very good elsewhere, but a lack of weapons could cost them in the end. On D, they really just need to stay healthy as depth issues are prevalent. This is definitely one of the more complete teams in BDL. #1 - Rome QB Drew Brees, Mitch Trubisky RB Todd Gurley, Theo Riddick, Devontae Booker, Marlon Mack WR Amari Cooperr, Daurice Fountain, Chad Hansen, WR James Washington, Corey Coleman, Eli Rogers, WR Juju Smith Schuster Tedd Ginn Jr TE OJ Howard, Austin Sefarian Jenkins, Jordan Akins LT Tyron Smith LG Justin Britt Nico Siragusa, C Brandon Linder, Evan Boehm RG Ramon Foster, Braden Smith, Max Garcia RT Marcus Gilbert, Ryan Ramczyk, DE Carlos Dunlap , Dante Fowler Jr, Avery Moss DT Michael Brockers, Matt Ioannidis DT Dalvin Tomlinson, malcolm Brown DE Takkarist McKinley, Marcus Davenport, James Harrison LEO Hau'oli Kikaha Kamalei Correa LB CJ Mosely, Patrick Onuwasor LB Leighton Vander Esch, Alex Anzalone Matt Milano CB Prince Amukamara, William Jackson III CB Janoris Jenkins, Anthony Averett NB Marlon Humphrey Cyrus Jones FS Jahleel Addae, Armani Watts SS Shawn Williams ,Josh Jones Looking over this team, it’s no surprise they won the BizzBowl last year. Rome has top tier players at QB and RB. Amari took a step back last year while Juju exceeded expectations and Howard came on at the end of the year. If Washington, Coleman, or anyone else steps up and Amari remembers how to catch, this weaponry is very good. The OL is also very solid as Tyron is a stud and the other 4 OL can at the least hold their own. But Rome has added Ramczyk and Braden the past two years to infuse youth into this OL, and if they pan out, this could be a top 3 BDL OL. Assuming Takk improves on last year, the Rome defense could be difficult to score on. Takk across from Dunlap would be a very nice tandem, but they need Davenport to grow quickly as impact depth is a bit of a concern. While Brockers and Tomlinson are a very nice pair, I don’t know if I trust Brown or Ioannidis as backups at all. LB could be very, very good as Mosely is a stud, Anzalone could be good if he could stay healthy, and LVE has a ton of potential. Rome also has a number of big name CBs, but outside of Janoris and possibly Marlon who was very solid at the end of the year, there are issues with consistency. Also, I don’t know who can play NB with functional effectiveness. At S, Shawn Williams is an underrated player, and Addae is okay assuming Derwin doesn’t eat his snaps, but Rome needs one of their young safeties to step up quickly. Top to bottom, this is one of the most complete teams in BDL with few holes. However, Rome has a few positions with serious depth concerns, and an injury or two could keep them from repeating. Side note, the Rome 2017 draft looks absolutely incredible a year out.

    The interesting thing to me about this is that it seemed pretty clear on watching that the biggest point is that society allows itself to get distracted easily by the superficial reactions and commentary and doesn’t get into the more important discussion behind what’s going on in front of its face. Ironic because it seems like much of the initial criticism of the video and its apparent commentary is on the superficial aspects of it. Sure, it raises the specters of gun violence and police interactions with certain parts of the community. But the substantive stuff is all happening in the background while we all (society) get distracted and fail to actually address it. So I think it’s odd to critique the video for “virtue signalling” and “pointing to issues without offering solutions” when the video itself appears to be calling out, at least in part, many of those very same things.

    So I looked at the projected starters and backups for all 32 teams for a thing and it was really interesting to see which teams came out on top. This isn't a ranking of which teams I think will fare best next season, because it strips out positional value and the impact of coaching and scheme. But it's an attempt to work out which rosters are better equipped at each starting position, plus the value of their back-up (i.e would there be a significant drop-off if the starter was injured?) in order to work-out which teams have the most talent and the most number of spots. I did this by scoring each position (QB, RB, WR, TE, OL, DL, Edge, Off LB, CB, S - rookies were marked conservatively) like this:- Starters: 1 - A low-level starter 2 - A below average starter 3 - An average or ascending NFL player 4 - A potential future Pro Bowl calibre player 5 - A Pro Bowl calibre player Depth: 1 - Fortunes of team would be severely hit if starter was unavailable 2 - A significant drop-off in talent from starter to back-up 3 - Drop-off in talent from starter to back-up could be managed 4 - Slight drop-off, but capable contributor backing up 5 - No noticeable drop-off Obviously, it's not an exact science (and others would score very differently, probably) - but just a bit of fun to get familiar with every team's roster. The Eagles look insanely stacked in their depth and the strength of their current starters, scoring far beyond the next team. A couple of surprises were the Ravens and Bengals, both in the top ten. But when you look at those rosters, they might be lacking in headliners - but man have they done a good job of filling the depth at almost every spot. Both look particularly resilient to injury, the Ravens just need some better luck there. Some creative coaching might be able to realise the talent that is there on those teams, given there are so many maybes. At the bottom of the list, there are some teams who have performed well of late and have some excellent starters in place - but don't look particularly far away from a few struggles if they hit an injury wave. The Cowboys fall into that category, although there are some units on that roster they need to work through. Some other teams I thought were deep, have a few questionable spots on their team when you run down the roster - the Saints would be in that category. Elsewhere, the Buccaneers I would say have done the most to turn around a roster by instilling depth at a number of spots during the the off-season. Overall Scoring: Philadelphia Eagles - 78 Green Bay Packers - 72 Jacksonville Jaguars - 72 Atlanta Falcons - 71 Baltimore Ravens - 70 Cincinnati Bengals - 69 Minnesota Vikings - 68 Pittsburgh Steelers - 67 Los Angeles Rams - 67 Los Angeles Chargers - 66 Tampa Bay Buccaneers - 66 New England Patriots - 66 Denver Broncos - 65 Washington Redskins - 64 Tennessee Titans - 64 New Orleans Saints - 63 Carolina Panthers - 62 Cleveland Browns - 61 Miami Dolphins - 60 Kansas City Chiefs - 59 New York Jets - 59 Seattle Seahawks - 58 New York Giants - 58 Indianapolis Colts - 57 Oakland Raiders - 57 Dallas Cowboys - 56 Chicago Bears - 55 Detroit Lions - 55 Houston Texans - 55 Buffalo Bills - 54 San Francisco 49ers - 54 Arizona Cardinals - 49

He has range our other safeties just don't have (well maybe Apke but we'll see). We only got to see him in 8 games last year, and health could definitely be a factor for him going forward (especially the concussions), but when he was out there he looked like a legitimate starting deep Safety. BTW, #20 - 16 are all going to be young players with upside that are unproven at this point.

    Yep, keeping him in his age group was the right choice. He is 3 games in and is 13 for 15. Today he went 4 for 4 with a 3 run home run (inside the park of course) - totaled 9 RBIs. The opposing coach is my friend, said he wanted my son tested after the game. LMAO

    The actual best solution would be to not play the national anthem at sporting events. At the bare minimum, don't show it. But that would result in the NFL not taking advertising dollars, so it was never on the table. This is probably going to Streisand Effect. Telling people they can't protest is the quickest way to make them protest.

    The martyr look is never a good look. For the record, if it has nothing to do with the rules, I'm just a guy with an opinion. The fact that I'm a moderator is generally irrelevant. I never said "get out." I tried to explain why what you were seeing could be happening. Is it fair to Smith? No. But it is what it is. I do appreciate the optimistic views. I just get tired of being told that when I have a less than rosy outlook on the team's decisions that I'm somehow deficient as a fan of this franchise or that the optimists are somehow an aggrieved minority that is abused horridly. If you want to take the sunny view, please do. Just don't wrap yourself in the flag when others disagree with you. For the record, this statement is not just targeted at you. There are others who I wish would read it. You have done nothing to violate the rules. You've been a bit of a pill from time to time, but hey, we put up with @turtle28, so what's one more?
