  1. Just as long as he doesn't have to play against Jaylon Smith
  2. Linebacker Heritage

    I always associate LB play with the Steelers. Ham and Lambert are all time greats, then guys like Farrior, Greene, Kirkland, Lloyd, Porter, Harrison, etc... they have as deep a history as anyone.
  3. Top five defenses in the league

    Dallas' front 7 is loaded with long, rangy athletes and Byron Jones is playing out of his mind. They have as deep a group of pass rushers in the league. I'd like to see more, but certainly in the conversation for top 5 and considering their youth you'd think they only get better as the season wears on.
  4. Michael Irvin vs. Steve Smith

    Only someone not old enough to have seen Irvin play and is just comparing raw statistics across eras would think this is an actual debate. From 91-95, Irvin was probably the best WR in the NFL. In a league that had Jerry Rice, Cris Carter, and Tim Brown in their primes. He was a first down machine for Dallas, and put up those numbers while playing in an offense that featured Emmitt Smith. It's even more impressive when you consider Dallas typically built big leads in the 1st half and just fed Smith for the 2nd half, so he not only maximized his opportunities, he paced the league. At time of his retirement following 1999 season [1st] Most Games 100 or More Yards Receiving, Season - 11 (1995) [Tied for 1st] Most Consecutive Games 100 or More Yards Receiving, Season - 7 (1995) [3rd] Most Games 100 or More Yards Receiving, Career - 47 [Tied for 3rd] Most Seasons 1,000 or More Yards Receiving - 7 (1991-1995, 1997-1998) Super Bowl Records [Tied for 2nd] Most Touchdowns, Game - 2 (SB XXVII vs. Buffalo) [Tied for 2nd] Most Touchdowns Receiving, Game - 2 (SB XXVII vs. Buffalo) [Tied for 3rd] Most Touchdowns Receiving, Career - 2 Post-Season Records [2nd] Most Receptions, Career - 87 [2nd] Most Yards Receiving, Career - 1,315 [2nd] Most Games 100 or More Yards Receiving, Career - 6 [Tied for 2nd] Most Receptions, Game - 12 (vs. San Francisco, Jan. 15, 1995)
  5. Are Sacks overrated?

    A sack is the goal, so they should be valued more than pressures/hits... but like others have said you need to account for the entire picture. the better you are as a pass rusher; the faster you get to the QB. that can be the difference between a hurry or a sack, and all of this happens within 3-4 secs
  6. Lawrence Taylor. I don't even know where he'd play, just get him on my team.
  7. All Time Offense?

    RB: Walter Payton QB: Joe Montana WR: Jerry Rice TE: Kellen Winslow OT: Anthony Munoz/Jonathan Ogden OG: Larry Allen/John Hannah C: Dwight Stephenson
  8. Why/How Do NFL Athletes "Lose a Step"?

    Rate of misregulation during mitosis increases as we age. Leads to decreased tissue renewal and repair.
  9. Better Peak Larry Fitzgerald V Sterling Sharpe

    That SB season wasn't dominant?
  10. Best Group In Football

    Rams DL People seem to have forgotten just how dominant Suh is. Maybe it's because he was playing in MIA, idk... but him paired up with Donald is going to be a problem. Those 2 are maybe the top game wreckers in pro football. Brockers is no slouch either.
  11. Best Average Prime Year: T.O Versus Antonio Brown

    Didn't matter what team or QB he was playing with, Owens dominated the league from around 2000-2007. His YAC ability was Jerry Rice on steroids, and while he wasn't quite Randy Moss as a deep threat (no one is) he was still a terror on the 9. This is a good argument for FF purposes, but in terms of real football it's Owens. He was unstoppable.
  12. They're also moving away from 12/13 personnel packages and towards the 10 package, which by default will give Elliott more space to operate. Also, Bryant and Witten didn't threaten any defense vertically. You could actually compress the box and play underneath knowing they weren't getting over the top of anyone. It will be interesting to see how Dallas' offense evolves this year, but they obviously committed to becoming faster and more explosive on the perimeter. Not sure how that equates to "completely focusing on Elliott without concern".
  13. Pats/Steelers Packers/Cowboys
  14. Philadelphia Eagles: Dynasty In The Making?

    Roseman isn't a wizard, he's simply choosing to max out his salary cap credit card. That type of cap management has been used before, but you're gambling on players maintaining their level of play or risk an excessive amount of dead money piling up. Depending on FA to build your roster is nice, but it's not a sustainable recipe. Dynasties are built through multiple years of excellent drafting. Roseman doesn't exactly have a great resume as a draft evaluator.
  15. Most underrated player on your team

    Sean Lee Feel like his injury history is the only thing that kept him from having a HOF career. When he's on the field he's one of the best defensive playmakers in the league, other-worldly instincts.
