  1. The NFC East Thread

    Matts is officially Skip Bayless. “(Hot take!) jargon, jargon, jargon” *wash, rinse, repeat* vanish to reddit *wash, rinse, repeat*
  2. We’ll take it! Feel free to hang here for the game if the Colts forum is slow.
  3. Well, maybe don’t move him outside then. We are a nickel defense. He’s playing a starter’s role. But he is playing significantly less snaps than Darby and Mills. Maddox has been strictly a STs player so far. I don’t know how effective Mills is in the slot. I’d say nothing needs to be changed as of now. I’ve said, that Tampa game was a horrible gameplan. They consistently played 7 yards off because they were scared to death of getting beat deep, even though they did anyway. Not sure how much that falls on the actually DBs. How many hitch and comeback routes did Fitz just roast us on without any adjustment? Gotta lay that on Schwartzy. Curious to see some adjustment but theres no need to panic. Cox was pretty adamant in a lockeroom interview saying they’ll be fine, “I promise you that.”
  4. Matthews? Of course, 790K, 1 year.
  5. It seems as if Agholor will be used in both positions. Matthews is strictly slot where Agholor can play both but happened to be at his most dynamic in the slot. I’m sure he’s going to get looks outside in practice and if all goes well, will be inserted there Sunday. If it doesn’t work out, Matthews will just be in a bench/ 2nd string role. I expect a lot of 2 TE sets and an emphasis on the running game (we released a WR and promoted a RB from the PS) this week while Matthews continues to acclimate himself. There’s rumors of Alshon being ready for the game but it’s looking more likely he sits another week or 2.
  6. I mean, as far as Howie goes, he bascially told JMatt to leave and get healthy, traded Harrison Phillips for Darby (who’s going to be ok, that game plan was atrocious) straight up.
  7. We traded for Jay last year, someone is always available. We could have easily gotten a more fleet of foot guy with a couple years left on his contract and just used him opposite AJ next year when Wallace is moved on from. This could have been a move for the future as well as now....just like Jay. So, you would have traded one of the comp 6th rounders? Big loss. JMatt will just slow this offense down, like he did when he was here and actually healthy and catching passes. I really hope they don’t think Aggy can just move outside now. Experimenting in week 3 seems desperate and dumb to me. Just gotta hope Wentz is good enough to negate poor WR play and he puts the TEs to work.
  8. NFL News & General Info Thread

    We promoted Josh Adams to the active roster. Not sure what it means for others. Maybe Sproles is more hurt than first thought? Bye-bye Smallwood? Bye-bye Carter? Though not sure I’d be cutting a WR right now. Somethings gotta give there, we need some help.
  9. The NFC East Thread

    No, it’s not even close to as tired as you are. You act like you’re story has changed. Just watch football for a couple weeks and keep telling yourself Dak is a good QB. Steve Young was it last time? What the hell do you watch on Sunday that the rest of the world doesn’t? You barely hit a keyboard last week and this week, after a win against the Giants, here you are all chesty again. The narrative on the Cowboys doesn’t change because it can’t change. Not unless Dak turns himself into a good QB, nothing Dallas does can actual manifest itself into success. The team is going as far as Dak can take them. And he hasn’t proven much in his last 18 games. Until Wentz proves he was a splash in the pan or oft-injured then I’ll act accordingly. Until then, I’ll go off of what’s recently happened. But I actually watch football and see a guy that is playing the position optimally. Instead of burying my head in the sand and living off of a rookie campaign where your boy was protected in every way from making tough QB decisions. Fact is, even if you believed Dak is a good QB, you haven’t seen him play the position well in a year. In the meantime, Carson has turned himself into an MVP candidate. Dak has regresssed, we all can see, it’s obvious and true. While the notion of Carson not being able to bounce back after a bad injury could be a real thing, is just conjecture at this point.
  10. I don’t know why but a lot of articles are putting Golden Tate’s name out there for trade. I’d much rather have Dez than Coleman if that’s where they’re leaning. Annnnnd Antonio Brown didn’t report to the Steeler’s facility this morning. Hmmm

    That’s what you got out of that? Ok, guy. You can take the guy out of reddit, but can’t take the reddit out of the guy. And the word you’re looking for is “although”. Leave you weak *** in the Dallas forum, bro. You’re super tired here.
