  1. Around the NFL

    I wouldn't go higher than a 5th for any of them.. and I do like what I see of Beal. Just seems like every year, I/we overestimate what these guys will be valued at.. so I'm bidding low this time. (i think)
  2. Around the NFL

    Agreed, taz, but not everyone wants to innocently click into a thread to see this. Just sayin'.. the news, fine.. the photo of damage to a woman? pass.

  5. Reuben Foster suspended 2 games

    Yeah, I'm considering this the forgiving end of the spectrum. NOW, BEHAVE YOURSELF, DUMMY, and then you can contribute to this SuperBowl season.
  6. Around the NFC East

    Yeah, I don't see Dez as a likely addition. Certainly not unless.. knock on wood.. an early injury rears its head to a vet WR. Meh on Scandrick saying his peace, is whateverz.
  7. Time will tell, if true.. or if it turns out to be the wise decision. Like so many of these cap decisions, it all comes down to many factors, yes? Cap cost, guarantees, whether a player brings enough to the team to warrant that desired size of contract... whether a player even wants to stay or prefers to chase FA dollars.. or if there is a younger player at the position they feel can do the same job at cheaper cost.
  8. J Allen and J Norman

    Nah. Getting tricked into trash talking opponents? Old news, and any reasonably grown man would have a chuckle and waive it off. Can't imagine this sparking anything serious.. not then.. not now.
  9. What TV Show Are You Watching?

    The Wire is the kind of show that likely hooks you in, but after, you still wonder how. I still wouldn't give it the high praise some do.. but no regrets. We are going through S2 of Animal Kingdom.. can't recall if Netflix or Amazon Prime. Worthwhile.
  10. Not so sure that this is THE burning factor. To me, and it may be obvious, but I'd say it's mainly about the OL. Trenches, baby. If the run game is a threat (OL), and the QB is comfortable eschewing the shorter routes to wait on the deeper routes (OL), then go with that high to low mentality. If the run game is lousy (OL), and not keeping any offensive balance (OL).... if the QB is getting hit often (OL), he will go with more of the short passes and hope for YAC.
  11. A fine concept. Just don't know whether the guy is qualified or thorough. For all we know, any team's guy could be a slackarse.. even if on a few occasions.. thereby skewing the results!

  14. An interesting read, and I applaud their efforts to at least try and refine the parameters more appropriately for the QB grades. It's just hard to imagine and trust that there are large crews sitting in film rooms.. scanning and marking each QB throw.. and then being competent in categorizing that throw to these exact specifications. Not saying they are not trying or doing it.. just that it's hard to purely trust it. I can see every team's QB coach being responsible for doing this, and he should be doing this if he's not. So, maybe they really are putting in the work, who knows.
