About Magnus-Viktor

  1. Martavis Bryant has requested a trade

    Bizarre stuff here. Million dollar talent, 1 cent brain strikes again most likely.
  2. 5 OLB's

    I can't think of anyone worse than Jarvis Jones. Hated that pick from day 1.
  3. next 5 games, what do we win

    Look at who the Jags have played. I spelled it out in my post. They might come crashing back down to earth in a hurry once they play someone good.
  4. next 5 games, what do we win

    Honestly? Barring injuries, the next 6 games all look like easy wins except the Chiefs. Jaguars: Their stats look good. 5th in offensive scoring (but they're 30th in passing and 18th in yards, 2nd in rushing yards). 7th in D scoring, 11th in yards, 1st in pass yards, 32nd in rush yards. But look at who they played. The Texans before their rookie QB started balling (top passer in that game was Bortles with 125 yards), the Titans, the Ravens and the Jets lol. In other words, they've played no one, and they're still only 2-2. Chiefs look great from what I've heard. Haven't seen them except highlights. 3rd offense which is more lacking in passing, and 11th defense for points, but they give up a lot of yards (26th total, 25th pass, 20th rush) Bengals looked terrible in every game except against the Clowns. Of course, the Clowns almost beat the Steelers, but I think the team is clicking more now that Bell is rolling again. 27th offense, 3rd defense. But, they've played The Ravens, Browns, Texans in their rookie QB's first start, and Green Bay. So only one decent offense. Lions I just watched play against the Vikings this weekend. The Lions did not look very good. They only scored 3 legit points on offense. The other 11 were gift wrapped by the Vikings fumbling around the 20 and 30 yard lines pretty much back to back. If the refs had called their DBs for blatant PIs, the Vikings would've blown them out IMO. The same Vikings the Steelers beat up on. Steelers better hope they don't get that same officiating crew....they were the worst I've seen. Colts are horrific aren't they? Their only win was 3 points over the Clowns. 25th offense, 32nd defense (scoring). Titans are 9th in scoring but are like the Chiefs in that they are run-dominant. Defensively, they're 30th. 29th in yards, 28th pass yards, 21st rush yards. So if the Steelers are finally going to start playing well as they appeared to be starting last week against the Ravens, they should be able to easily beat 5 of the 6, and no one is going to convince me the Chiefs are better without seeing it for myself. Taking that a step further, if they're playing decent and healthy, the Steelers should easily win every game on the schedule except the Packers and maybe Patriots (lets face it, their D is terrible and not what it used to be, but Tomlin can't seem to beat them for whatever reason). Disgusting they lost to the lowly Bears though, so who knows?? Unfortunately I'll be in Brussels so I'll miss that Chiefs game unless I can find it in a bar. Before all of this national anthem BS, I never would've planned a trip in the middle of football season, but here we are.
  5. Week 4 Ups/Downs

    I wonder if Maxx Williams would be available for trade if the Ravens are deactivating him on game day. He had some tremendous catches in college. Surprising he's not doing more with them than he apparently is. Forgot another up: MIKE HILTON. Sack, INT, he's a scrappy, tenacious little bugger.
  6. Week 4 Ups/Downs

    UPs: Bell finally got it rolling. He looked like the stud he has been in the past again today. The pass rush was pretty good from a host of guys. Having Tuitt and Watt back was great. Shazier is a monster. LOVE that guy when he's healthy. He's all over the place. A WIN IN BALTIMORE!!! DOWNs: Brown acting like a spoiled little baby when Ben didn't see him. The refs on that completed pass over turning it into an INT. I know I had to have had the same look on my face that Ben had on his after that call. Giving up the long runs. Wilcox and Mitchell need replaced. The passing game still isn't really clicking.
  7. 2018 Draft Prospects

    Agreed. I'm not trying to debate it either. I was just explaining that I was going off of what I had seen. I've seen some bad and some good. I saw a lot of good in 2 games. That Pitt game he was almost flawless until he forced that pass when he was greedy in the 2nd half. But Pitt is obviously terrible this year. As for Bortles, I didn't like his throwing motion, but there was an awful lot to like about the guy coming out. I liked Derek Carr the most, and then it would've been between Garroppolo and Bortles and Mettenberger for my 2nd pick. I didn't like Manziel or Bridgewater at all. I thought Manziel was absolutely undraftable after that LSU game where he was exposed with the Mush Rush. I watched that game live. Bridgewater had a weak arm, terrible deep ball and was way too thin......all of that proved true, for both Bridgewater and Manziel, once they got to the big leagues. Yeah, I was a bit wrong on Mettenberger. I did call that ODB was a stud, and much better than Jarvis Landry who got more love from the announcers when I'd watch the LSU games that last year they were there. But what I didn't realize was that he had TWO stud WRs that made him, not the other way around. That taught me to look at supporting cast a bit more.....the whole cause and effect thing. I wanted both Mettenberger and ODB big time.....but now I realize that one is no good, and the other is a headcase, so I'm glad neither happened lol.
  8. 2018 Draft Prospects

    Well of course, but I'm not going to do that. So all you can really do besides look at stats is to look at what you have seen. I've watched quite a bit of Rudolph this year, and I think he looks pretty good. I'm not expecting another QB the caliber of Ben again. I'm just looking for someone that would be decent, and available. By decent, I mean someone I can live with as my starting QB.
  9. 2018 Draft Eligible RB Thread

    1. Barkley - Looks like the total package to me, with the best combination of size and athleticism, combined with a versatile skillset. He did get ~30 yards given to him that he shouldn't have in that Iowa game. Might've been the difference in the game. He was clearly down on that long run on the drive that set up their 2nd TD. Still a monster game though. 2. McCaffrey - more of a receiving back, but he can run too - all depends on a system.....if used like Marshall Faulk and if he stays healthy, that's what he'll be. A HOFer, like Marshall Faulk. 3. Le'Veon Bell - from his 2nd year on. If talking coming out in the draft, definitely not on the list of course, because he reinvented himself. He was the gold standard in the NFL though the last 2 years. This is just talent....if factoring in off-field issues he's off the list completely. I don't remember any character red flags on draft day though. 4. David Johnson - I like receiving backs in case you can't tell....it's a passing league and backs that can do it all are what I want. For value, he's the best on this list by far, since he was by far the latest pick. I thought the Vikings should've drafted him to replace Adrian back then. 5. Elliott - just going off of talent - more of an Emmett Smith type IMO. Runs well inside, has power to break tackles, but he's faster and I believe bigger as well. 6. Peterson - way too one dimensional and fumbles too much, but he was an explosive runner-only even if it was only with the QB under center - no way I'd take him over Barkley, McCaffrey or Zeke HM. Gurley/Fournette
  10. A letter from Art Rooney, II I got in email today

    For the record, I don't really consider this to be a politics or racial issue, in the context we've been talking. I consider it to be an issue of do you find this issue offensive, do you believe/accept/condone their stories (Rooneys, Tomlin, Ben, Villanueva, etc), and what are your priorities. The only thing political about it is that some of the protests are politically and/or racially motivated. I don't think this discussion has really went into that area much if any (that I recall anyway).
  11. Bears Downs

    All that these antics, along with the related protests of blocking roads, turns the "moderate" people against them. They hurt their cause by pissing people off.
  12. A letter from Art Rooney, II I got in email today

    My country trumps sports. Sorry, but there's no way I'd ever be "that guy" with my hand on the shoulder of some dude kneeling in these "protests". I'd be on the opposite end of that line. Doesn't mean I'd necessarily hate the guy or shun him otherwise, unless I felt he was protesting against me and mine. But during the anthem I would definitely distance myself from them and their garbage. Just to clarify there what I meant.
  13. A letter from Art Rooney, II I got in email today

    I wouldn't be anywhere near anyone kneeling. I'd shun them.
  14. Bears Downs

    People can SAY anything. It's called twisting the truth, or realizing they F'd up and trying to do damage control. I prefer to go with what I can see, and any way you try to twist it, there were 4 coaches and Villanueva on the sideline. No one else. That's messed up no matter how they try to spin it. They've admitted they weren't all going to be out there as they should be, so nothing else matters.
  15. To Steelers Nation: I want to reach out to you, the members of Steelers Nation, based on what I believe is a misperception about our players' intentions in not taking the field for the National Anthem in Chicago. The intentions of Steelers players were to stay out of the business of making political statements by not taking the field. Unfortunately, that was interpreted as a boycott of the anthem – which was never our players' intention. Our players come from many different backgrounds and are united by what it means to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are active in their communities and participate regularly in events designed to give back to those communities. And they appreciate the support they get from Steelers fans around the country and here at home. I also know that our players have tremendous respect for the members of our military services, including their teammate Alejandro Villanueva. There was never any desire on the part of our players to show disrespect for our service members. Yesterday, I received an email from a Steelers fan who said tell the players to just play football. That is exactly what they wanted to do. They wanted their sole focus to be on playing the game, while also coming together as a unified team. The main thing we can do is learn from this and strive to come together remaining unified as a football team. I believe we are capable of accomplishing this with the support of our fans. Steelers Nation is made up of the best fans in the National Football League. We appreciate your continued support of our players, coaches and staff. Sincerely, Art Rooney, II Pittsburgh Steelers
