  1. 2019 Free Agency Thread

    Agree with most of this. This year will be good for Carr. The more he can do with less, including weapons and protection, the better it will be when we can get him both.
  2. 2019 Free Agency Thread

    Agree with most of this. Honestly with Cooper and Mack, I don't know if we'd be above .500. This team needs a ground up rework and so far I'm liking our rookie class (obviously early, but so far so good), and I'll include Conley in there as a 1st year player. We'll sign an edge guy in FA and that will help enormously. I'm hoping one of the bigger sack guys will somehow make it out there (dee ford, zadarius smith, clowney, lawrence, brandon graham). The safety market is quite good (earl thomas, mathieu, haha). I'm hoping for a LB instead of Whitehead as well (Jordan Hicks or CJ Mosely). Even receiver has some decent starting guys who may be out there (John Brown, Tyrell Wiliams, Golden Tate, Robby Anderson, Quincy Enunwa, Funchess). Hopefully these next 6 games will tell us more about the youngins we have. Give us something to build around.
  3. Nick Bosa vs Ed Oliver

    I dunno man. Someone like Oliver gives you his all and makes a name for your program, can't you cut him some slack? You know? I admire the equal treatment, but life is not equal treatment. Oliver is superhuman, especially for Houston. He's not any other player. Players get hot. He wants his jacket and he probably feels disrespected because he wants to feel like one of the guys out there... IDK man. Seems like people are reading too far into this one thing.
  4. Khalil Mack traded to the Bears (Page 19)

    I didn't say he would never play for the Raiders. I meant, under their current terms of negotiation, he was unwilling to play. They offered him the most money for any defender multiple times according to the article. He wanted more. It's a business, I understand that. I also understand that with his current contract, we wouldn't win anything, seeing as how poorly this roster has been built. This team needs a massive overhaul and couldn't commit 90+ million guaranteed to a player on a team this bad. Can you imagine the fanbase if we went 5-11 this year with Mack and Cooper under contract, then extended Cooper for 18 million/year next year? Good god, him carr and cooper would literally take up close to 70 million on a mediocre to bad team. Gruden is saying he doesn't want mediocre. He wants absolutely terrible, sure. But not mediocre. One of those rewards us long term and the other doesn't do a thing. Maybe this will backfire monumentally, but I can't blame him for not valuing 2 guys in a game starting 22, when many of those 22 weren't/aren't good.
  5. Khalil Mack traded to the Bears (Page 19)

    We do know. Mack didn't want to play and would have held out indefinitely, unless Mark Davis was lying.
  6. Nick Bosa vs Ed Oliver

    Bro, this is mind bogglingly good. I've never read a post on here this deep or detailed. Please keep posting more like this, I'm just happy to learn more about the game. Also re: Ed Oliver, the way I see it, this dude runs the program. He's their best player by far. I know its special treatment and all, but the coach should give him flak about wearring a goddamn jacket. Who cares man? He's your best player. Do you really want to antagonize him about the JACKET he's wearing, when he can't play due to what I assume is injury? Seems petty by the coach IMO. I'm sure many disagree with me though.

    He deserves another year. THat much I know. We need to give him a chance.
  8. 2019 NFL Draft Thread

    At least thus far, Gruden is not stupid enough to get rid of the few things we have going for us.
  9. 2019 NFL Draft Thread

    This is straight up unfair to Miller. Imagine how ****ed Carr would be if we didn't have someone to play LT right now. Do you really think Derwin James would be some all pro playing for us? Safeties need other guys to do their job. The chargers have a better defense than us from top to bottom. That's why James impact is showing. If they were trash, he wouldn't be freed up/able to make the same plays with the same frequency. Miler could become a good player. I always thought he was a redshirt guy anyways and he has played well for a rookie when healthy (big asterisk). When the OL has been healthy, this team has been at their most competitive. Hell, we might take Deionte Thompson this year and he's a pretty damn good player so I wouldn't worry too much. Also I think PJ Hall are Hurst are fine players, as is Key. They're all just rookies. I think you're seeing what you want to see. I'm also frustrated that we haven't addressed LB, but I also can see some of the dividends that this rookie class is paying as opposed to the Jihad Ward, Vanderdoes, and Melifonwu's of the world. And yes, I'm well aware that these rookies are playing more because the team is garbage, but I thought most of them were fine picks. I really don't see how you think we're going to blow these picks if we're just looking at last years class. If you want to blame anyone for not taking linebackers, blame Reggie. He literally refuses to do it.
  10. Khalil Mack traded to the Bears (Page 19)

    The bears still have the Rams, Packers, and Vikings twice on their schedule. It's not some cakewalk to the playoffs. I agree with giving up our 2nd, that was dumb.
  11. Khalil Mack traded to the Bears (Page 19)

    Can we at least wait until the season is over to see what the picks will be??
  12. Carson Wentz vs Patrick Mahomes

    Hey gruden made that corner retire. Top that!
  13. Kupp out for the year(sorry Rammy)

    I don't know man. I think McVay will be just fine. The defense will also step up, which will lessen the burden.
  14. Jordy Nelson announces retirement

    Shh. Gruden is an idiot. The contract is already a disaster. He just sucks as a coach and has no idea what he's doing. Silly him. It's too bad that Cooper and Mack are gone. We were dominating last year with them so I have no idea why we need to rebuild. Especially because so many of our drafted players from 2015-17 are starting for us rn.
  15. 2019 NFL Draft Thread

    What are quinnen williams flaws as a prospect? You can make a good argument that he's a better athlete playing against better competition. Give me something concrete. I'm not putting words in your mouth. You just shut down the notion that Bosa isn't the best player in the class, which is a valid possiblity, even if the media says otherwise. You're response to him was literally "no, just no". But why though? Give me something concrete?
