  1. Around the NFL - Playoffs Baby

    Clark better be a helluva lot better than Ford, better locker guy, etc.
  2. That’s a rough stretch Matts. Hopefully things start to turn around.
  3. Guys for over a decade this for had a rule that we would never mention the Q. Same Bozo the Switzer. Why is it all of a sudden appropriate to have threads about him?
  4. Free agency - who is left.

    Good for JG. Apart from the fact that it’s true... I don’t get why they didn’t just cut Irving at that point. He did become a distraction. The dude was one of the most impressive football talents I’ve ever seen but is clearly dealing with demons.
  5. Free agency - who is left.

    I don't get the Witten hate at all. I personally like the move. Wit was never about speed... he's always been a technique guy who knows how to find open spots in the zone. He will continue to be a reliable option which is really what Dak needs most on third downs. And, Wit will also help the run game. Last year, if you guys did not notice... most of our runs came from 11 formation. We rarely ran from 12 which has been a staple for our offense. 12 formation gives us the ran pass option which helps slow down the pass rush. And, this comment is for the whiners in the forum: Dak has a horrendous propensity too hold onto the ball too long. By running more 12, it gives him an extra blocker if necessary or another short pass target that even he should be able to complete.

    Dude, it’s the offseason. Don’t whine about people posting. And, you probably need to understand that in a football forum, discussion of your quarterback is likely to come up in MOST threads especially when there’s a discussion about whether a free agent WR would be beneficial or whether we are good with what we have. Just letting you... it’s probably gunna happen.
  7. Free agency - who is left.

    YDRC. YOU DON'T REMEMBER CORRECTLY. It's universally the biggest gripe that all of us have with Dak... the dude simply misses way to many easy throws and Gallop was on the receiving end of way too many of those misses.
  8. Free agency - who is left.

    The bolded part literally cracked me up. Matts, let's be honest... Dak missed Gallop more times than Leveon Bell missed game checks last year. Gallop would have been in the rookie of the year conversation if Dak even remotely put the ball in Gallop's neighborhood sometimes. Im not even exaggerating when I say Dak easily left 4-5 TDs on the table when throwing to Gallop. Many of those throws were painfully bad.
  9. 2019 Free Agency - Potential Targets

    An elite safety is the nfl equivalent of a super chill supermodel who doesn’t do drugs but who loves sports and is freak in the bedroom. They don’t come around often but when they do... you put a ring on it and hold onto that forever.

    Am I missing something... it seems like the Chiefs are losing their entire defense. Who did they add? They have a talented offense for sure but that already porous defense is going to be a sieve.
  11. Breaking: Earl Thomas to Ravens

    I would have liked to have ET just as much as anyone else but the team made the right decision considering how much money ET got. With Dlaw, Cooper, Dak, Zeke and Smith all coming up on FA over the next 2 years, we will need all the cap space we can get.

    The list that you made includes a ton of JAGs that every team makes. There’s not one player on that list that set the franchise back with a big contract that resulted in a lot of dead salary cap money. Hardy was a one year deal which didn’t cripple the franchise. If fact Hardy’s contract was made in a per game basis. Rivera was part of the 2005 class which I mentioned before which immediately helped turn the team around including having a really good team in 2007. Wiley was at the end of his career and wasn’t a great signing but was far from a splash signing that hurt the franchise. At that point the franchise was hurt from the Galloway trade and poor drafting.

    The problem with using pure passing yards as a measure of success is the prevent defense. Passing stats of losing teams always get padded in the 4th quarter. I’ve done and shared the cowboys analysis many times. The cowboys are most likely to win when they control TOP and win the Turnover battle. Obviously winning TOP includes converting 3rd downs into first downs. But, It really doesn’t matter how they do it... running or passing. From what I recall when you put those 2 stats together, the cowboys win something like 90% of the time.

    Matts, Jerry got a reputation as being a FA spender after Deion. But the truth is that we’ve really never been like the redskins when it comes to free agent spending. The very few times that we were active in FA spending such as 2005 had good results. TO was a good FA pick up that helped the team to the best record in NFC. Brandon Carr was a good FA pick up. The thing that has hurt the franchise is making horrible trades for Galloway and Williams... not the few times we’ve been active in FA.
