  1. Predict the 53 man roster

    ^^ A real Nostradamus
  2. Offseason news/rumours

    With the emergence of Deshaun Watson (and the prospect of his future cap figure), I wonder if the Texans will let Clowney walk. They aren't in terrible cap shape but they already have a lot of money tied up in their front 7 and need help protecting Watson. Mac drafted Clowney and if he sees free-agency that may help draw him in to fill an immediate need.
  3. 2018 Expansion Draft - Jets

    Brian Winters (Due 20+ m over the next 3 years and he’s a middling player) Mike Pennel (Due 10m over the next 3 years, replaceable) Justin Burris (our secondary is filling out, would like to see other players get the reps) Kevin Pierre-Louis (Due 5 million over the next 2 years, seems to be a replaceable role player) Rashard Robinson (another guy that just seems like replaceable depth)
  4. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    Season ending injury is a reason to not see the field. Being a garbage player is not a reason to see the field.
  5. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    His opportunity is/was the practice field. If he couldn't make things work out when he's got a non-contact jersey (behind Josh McCown and Bryce Petty) what makes you think he could in a real game? (reiterating Rockice) I loved the prospect of Hack. I remained positive up until he got cut that he could some how contribute. His stint with Oakland just shows he's not worth the investment. Not to mention he's now a free agent and is unsigned at the most valuable position.

    I sure hope he's hot garbage ,and not some crazy Patriots super fan who refused to play for anyone but the Patriots
  7. Offseason news/rumours

    Seeing that Hack already got the axe in Oakland makes me wonder why we kept him around as long as we did? Do we still get a pick out of this?! -edit we don’t get to keep the pick
  8. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    Sure, but when was the last time we drafted a Michael Thomas or David Johnson? There needs to be a commitment to keep trying on those Mid-Round players. Its not a one draft and done. I wouldn't hate it if we drafted a RB in the 3rd-4th for the next 3 years knowing that the position can continually be improved. Best example is the Steelers with WRs. You have Antonio Brown and they still seem to draft a top prospect in the 2-4th rounds and it nets them picks and negotiation power over their guys because they have a next man up. Where we draft Stephen Hill in the 2nd and hope for the best. If we can start being gluttonous over drafting weapons Sam will be successful. I think we can fill holes on the O-line through FA

    I would probably agree with your point if you werent naming some of the best players at their positions. Would I want a DJ or MT? Heck yeah but let’s be realistic. Yes we could use a versatile back say a Joe Mixon or Jerrick MacKinnon. Yes we could use some depth at receiver having similar recievers to the patriots where everyone is a threat and none so much a game breaker (which I think we have now/are on our way to) A quality OLine is a must, but Dallas has invested first round picks into their Oline seemingly every other year. Brings me back to my original and obvious point. We need to draft well and actually hit on those chances. And realize that not all will be addressed through the draft, we are going to have to invest in proven players as we are such a young team.
  10. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    No, I got it. It’s just the expectation of having a draft where we are striking gold in every round is lofty. Kept it short for you.

    “This is what Darnold needs;“ ^this statement contradicts this statement based on the players you are suggesting >> “I don’t think we need to emphasize LT like the league has in years past...” Okay let’s start with your idea of a “stable O-line” with little emphasis on a LT. LT Tyron Smith is a 5 time pro bowler, 2 time all pro drafted #9 overall. Zach Martin is a 4 time pro bowler, 2 time all pro drafted #16 overall Travis Frederick is a 4 time pro bowler, 1 time all pro drafted # 31st overall. and they have invested a 2nd and 3rd in the O line in 2015 and 2017 I agree keeping Sam upright should be a priority but Dallas’ best player on offense might be Tyron Smith. He’s a corner stone in which you build around. Not to mention the 2 other first round picks used on the O-line. I wouldn't call that stable but more so dominant and would put us back 3 first rounders. “...Same with #1 WR...” Michael Thomas graded out as PFFs #2 WR last year. The guy is elite and makes the whole unit better. Also grows on trees. “....and even a dynamic back” David Johnson your example of a veratile back had 2000 ap yards and 20 TDs in 2016. Lead back material. Also grows on trees. Sure man maybe we get lucky and strike gold on a player in rounds 1-3 would love to have a Kareem Hunt , Kamara steal in the draft but it’s hard to come by. Your examples are picks that turned into the top talents of the league. We are looking at next years draft currently with a 1st and a 3rd. Where we should address the oline, weapons, and hey maybe the whole other side of the ball. I also think any QB could have success with what your proposing, no need for a 100m dollar Sam.
  12. Offseason news/rumours

    $10M for a QB is the cheapest contract for a veteran starter. Only guys making less are on their rookie deals. If we went into the draft with Teddy, Hack, and Petty we probably would have given up an extra pick or two to swap with the giants just to avoid the fan outcry if we missed our guy.
  13. Just glad he isn't on the patriots roster. Looks like I need to change my icon now....
  14. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    Michael Thomas is going to demand top 5 WR money from the Saints. David Johnson similarly at RB. The Dallas O-line is the best in the league. I feel like you've contradicted your point some. We need to hit on players in the draft and that's easier said than done.
  15. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    That's not Hack... if it is he got tanner....
