  1. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    Guess we know who Bourne is pulling for lol
  2. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    @jetskid007 Are your asking who we think the team will take, or the consensus on the board? I personally think the team will take Bosa. I'd give that like 60 percent in my head off arbitrary percentages. QW like 35. 4 for other. 1 for trade. Nothing to back that up just my own feeling
  3. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    Because he put up better numbers than i expected, that's all lol. But LIS, don't think it matters. Don't think that we are drafting a safety in the first 3/4 rounds anyway.
  4. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    Yeah, but I mean, we have two defensive end spots and it's okay to have successful pass rushers on both ends (Everson Griffen + Hunter. Houston + Ford.). Let's keep in mind also that Ford? Not a sure thing. He's had a somewhat up and down career and last year was the first year he was that type of beast. He's got some injury history. Does that keep up moving forward? I don't know. Maybe. If not, well, his deal is essentially a one year deal is my understanding. He had his best year in a year where he had Houston (9 sacks) off the other edge and Chris Jones up the middle. We can bracket that situation with Buckner on the interior, and a pass rusher at the other end spot that puts Ford in the best possible position to succeed (and create turnovers - the dude is a finisher) if he's actually not the type to carry a defense's pass rush from the edge. I don't think this is a situation that needs to be over thought. There's nobody on the offensive end from a prospect standpoint that is as strong as the defenders. You take the talent and the blue chippers. Now, if you or anyone else prefers someone like Allen over Bosa, like @N4L, that's fine. I get that. I don't agree, but that's just a prospect thing. I still have Allen in my top 5, after all. But I don't think we need to get creative here with going in some other direction. There's still plenty of ways to make a great use out of a guy like Bosa. And heck, having that kind of rotation may be a phenomenal thing. Maybe these guys are still cranked up at the end of the season because they are all playing only 60% of the defensive snaps, so they aren't as worn down. Plus, injuries happen, and speaking from our own experience, they happen a lot.

    Also, I think this is the most stacked defensive front / pass rushing class we have had in a long time. This class is absolutely incredible at the top, even after you get past the "blue chippers". Ed Oliver. Burns. Sweat. Etc. Are they all going to work? Of course not. But this draft is amazing for pass rushing talent. To pass that up on a high risk high reward receiver in the top 3 with limited experience, is very raw, has health concern and is not a top 10 overall prospect in this draft is tantamount to the selection of guys like Christian Ponder in that amazing 2011 draft in my opinion. It would be a very, very bad idea.
  6. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    pretty much agree with everything here. I may be more willing to put him at #1 on the receiver list, but that's probably the only difference. And just to clarify, the only reason he would be at #1 would be because of potential upside - I don't think that any of the receivers in this draft quite match up there (except Butler maybe) . But he's also super raw and I don't think there's any guarantee whatsoever that he gets anywhere close to that.
  7. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    Bosa and Williams And no way am I taking DK Metcalf at number 2.
  8. 2019 Free Agency Thread

    So call it 27.2M in space, less any remaining bonuses that are paid out to get us from 75 to 90, which should be nominal.
  9. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    I really like Oliver, hoping that we add him to the list of guys we look at.
  10. Titans cut Blaine Gabbert

    8 seasons $10,248,174 $8,808,472 $200,000 $140,000 - - $130,205 $19,526,851 Now let us all take a moment of silence to be sad about the fact that this guy has played quarterback about as well as any of us could have over these 8 seasons, yet he has made 19.5 million dollars
  11. 2019 Free Agency Thread

    Wilkins hasn't been a failure for two years and will have a full rookie deal. They are not the same. Thomas isn't holding any real value. A team isn't giving up the pick they would use on Wilkins to trade for Thomas. Would someone give up a fourth rounder? Yeah maybe. But that's not real value. Like half of all fourth rounders are off the roster by year 3. Is Atlanta going to give up Julio for a fourth and third rounder? And there's no reason we should be giving up on Thomas as only a 4th or something in the mid rounds. He holds more value to us just under the possibility that he can be better. A trade of Thomas holding real value makes no sense for any team acquiring him, and trading Thomas for anything less than real value doesn't make sense for us. Does it make sense to dump Solly with his potential with 2 years left on the rookie deal for a fourth round pick that has nearly a 50% chance of not being on the roster after that same two year period (those retention rates are a little dated - 2014 - however I can't find anything more recent except one that covers 6 years, which is a little too long. Though retention rates for 4th round picks in 6 years is about 10%).
  12. NFL DRAFT RUMOR THREAD

    Yeah, I'm not doing that. I'd much rather do it from home. If I can get into the draft, it'll be worth it. Very fun experience. But I'm not going down there just to be down there. If they are going to be 3K+, I'll make sure that my gf knows that they are a priority ticket to acquire for us, and if she can get it, great, and if not, I'll be chilling at my home chatting with you guys haha.
  13. NFL DRAFT RUMOR THREAD

    I'll be hoping that my gf can get me tickets for free LOL.
  14. NFL DRAFT RUMOR THREAD

    Ugh. That scares me for the draft in Vegas. I'm totally in on going, but 3k? Screw that. I just can't justify that.
  15. Yeah, and they've already said that there are some areas where they will simply never enter. It's unfortunate. My city (Las Vegas) is one they have mentioned by name that they will never (or are highly unlikely to) expand to, which completely sucks.
