  1. Kobe Bryant has died in helicopter crash

    I'm still in shock. Devastated. Growing up in LA playing AAU and going to summer b-ball camps, I was a huge Lakers fan. I missed maybe 5 Lakers games total throughout my entire childhood, before I became such a big football fan. Kobe was and still is the greatest inspiration for me outside of my parents. This hurts so damn much. Have shed tears multiple times today and just teared up again watching my favorite highlight vid of him.

    No f'ing way
  3. First Mock Offseason

    I like it overall, kudos for the work you put in. I’d rather spend on an elite player like Anthony Harris in FA rather than two serviceable players in Boston and Schobert (who has never really stood out to me and whose PFF grade is barely above Holcomb’s). I would then play Landon Collins in the box on passing downs (where he’s at his best), similar to what JDR did with TJ Ward when he was in Denver. I’d have Harris and Nicholson/Apke playing on the back end. Given that use of Collins at LB on most downs, I’m fine with letting the young guys at LB develop, with a couple low-priced options in FA like Bostic and/or Danny Trevaithon if we go that route. Also, I’m guessing you haven’t heard the news on Foster? I’m doubting he plays this season. I like the moves on offense. I wish we could replace Moses at RT, but Alex Smith’s albatross of a contract prevents us from realistically doing that. I also think it’s going to take more than that to sign Hooper. There will be a lot of teams out there bidding for his services. Also, JFYI, I’m pretty sure we don’t have a 6th round pick this year. We swapped with Denver and now have two 7ths instead.
  4. Update: Jaguars hire Jay Gruden as OC

    JFYI, he wasn’t calling the plays in 2015 or 2016.

    Is Patterson even draftable?

    2. CHASE YOUNG, DE, OHIO STATE No one defensive player impacted the opposing offense quite like Young did in 2019. He recorded a pass-rush win rate of 27.2% despite being consistently double- or even triple-teamed. Young affected the game plan of his opponents before he even stepped foot on the field, and he finished with the highest grade we’ve ever given to an edge defender in a single season. Young finished the year with 56 total pressures, including 18 sacks, seven hits and 31 hurries, but his impact went as far as seeing him record 33 additional pass-rushes that beat the defender, but the offense either unleashed a quick pass, QB draw or simply threw it away before Young could register a pressure. He was a true game-wrecker, the likes of which even bested the efforts of both Bosa Brothers before him. Take, for instance, the Northwestern game. After a successful run play, the Wildcats attempted a straight-dropback pass. Young sacked the quarterback so fast that their game plan changed to avoid Young’s impact over the course of the next 16 plays: Play No. Play Type Result Young’s Pos. Direction Young’s Impact 2 Pass Sack LEO Straight Drop Sack 3 Run +6 LEO Left Ran Away From 4 Pass Inc. LEO Roll Left Rolled Away From 5 Run +11 REO Right Ran Away From 6 Pass Inc. LEO Roll Left Rolled Away From 7 Pass +4 LEO Screen Left Quick Screen Away From 8 Run +12 REO Right Ran Away From 9 Run +10 REO Middle QB Draw Away From 10 Run +5 REO Middle Brought WR to chip block 11 Run -1 LEO Left Ran Away From 12 Pass +1 REO Roll Right Rolled Away From 13 Run +10 REO Middle Ran Away From 14 Pass -4 REO Roll Right Rolled Away From 15 Pass Inc. LEO Roll Left Rolled Away From 16 Run +2 REO Middle Ran Away From 17 Pass Inc. REO Straight Drop Quick (2.4 sec.) Pass Deep 18 Pass Inc. REO Straight Drop Quick (1.8 sec.) Pass Short His impact reached far beyond the box score in 2019; it was a season for the ages. Young finished his season with an incredible 133 positively graded plays to just 17 negatively graded plays. That’s a ratio that we’ve never seen before. https://www.pff.com/news/college-football-best-101-players-from-2019
  7. I seriously think AB might have brain damage from the NFL

    Kanye was in a really bad car accident before his career took off
  8. How are those rookies doing?

    I know (hope) this was sarcastic, but I don’t have the “Insider” access anyway.
  9. Kyle Smith Promoted to VP of Player Personnel

    Ranking the NFL's most productive 2019 rookie classes from 1-32 The ability to get production from players on rookie contracts is one of the biggest competitive edges NFL teams can create. It is easier to do that with a wealth of draft capital near the top of the board, of course, but it's important how much a team can get from its draft picks relative to where they were taken rather than just blindly adding together all the production from the class. If Player X and Player Y have similar seasons, the production from Player Y, taken in the sixth round, is much more valuable than the production a team gets from first-round-pick Player X. Pro Football Focus has unveiled its wins above replacement metric in recent weeks (PFF WAR), and we used it to rank all 32 teams on the value of their rookie class over expectation given where each player was selected in the 2019 draft. 1. Washington Redskins Why they're ranked here: The Redskins got average quarterback play from Dwayne Haskins after he took over as the starter in Week 9 and an outstanding performance from third-round receiver Terry McLaurin. Play like that from two of the most valuable positions in the NFL will go a long way toward making a top draft class. How their top pick fared: Haskins (No. 15 overall) got off to a rough start to his career with two shaky performances off the bench, but he rebounded with a 73.4 PFF grade (12th among quarterbacks) after taking over as the starter in Week 9. Best value pick: McLaurin (No. 76 overall) was a revelation in 2019. His 86.5 receiving grade not only led all rookie wide receivers this season, but it was the highest mark since Odell Beckham Jr.'s in 2014.

  11. General Season Talk

    Looks like he was right, lol. We’re obviously not giving up our 1st for him, and we don’t even have a 2nd. Aren’t you guys strapped for cap space and draft picks? Doesn’t there come a certain point where you’ll get diminishing returns out of a talented position group and you’d be better off allocating your resources elsewhere for a higher chance of sustained team success?
  12. I know the Bengals will take Burrow, but...

    Defensive much? I think Burrow had the greatest college season ever at the QB position and expect him to be a franchise QB. I’m just giving a reason for why some may consider him a more likely bust candidate than Chase Young.
  13. I know the Bengals will take Burrow, but...

    I'm guessing because one player has looked like a future top 5 pick since his freshman year, while the other player only dominated during his 5th year of school. Still, I think it's foolish to consider Young bust-proof.
