  1. Huh? I don't think the Bengals would have drafted Smith. They had Ickey Woods and James Brooks at the time. They probably take another OLB if they pass on Francis, like Lamar Lathon or Renaldo Turnbull.
  2. The time that Emmitt Smith was almost passed over by the Cowboys: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2uc40xZ5Go If the Bengals drafted someone else in the first round of the 1990 draft except James Francis, Emmitt Smith plays his storied career someone else (SF, maybe?).
  3. That just seems too high to me, QB or not. Now, maybe if you were doing what the Jets did in 09 (moving from 17 to 5), it wouldn't be. It isn't like going up to the second spot from the sixth spot like the Redskins did in 2012. They gave up three #1's for him, which was one too many.
  4. The point scale they came up with in the 90's is fixed. It doesn't go up when a QB is involved.
  5. Not if you use precedence like lawyers do. For example, I go on this site to find a similar trade (and what was given up): https://www.prosportstransactions.com/ In 2013, the Raiders had the third pick, and to trade up from 12, Miami only sent that pick and a second-rounder. Why should Denver have to give up more to move up to four from nine?
  6. Well, from what I heard (from my cousin who is a Browns fan), the LB core is total garbage, including Takitaki and Mack Wilson. I know they drafted Jacob Phillips last year, but he didn't set the world on fire. In addition, Anthony Walker is a FA after this year.
  7. Patrick will be FA next year, as well as Calvin Ridley, Russell Gage, and a few others they have at that position.
  8. FIRST ROUND 1. Jacksonville: Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson 2. N.Y. Jets: Zach Wilson, QB, BYU 3. San Francisco (from MIA thru HOU): Justin Fields, QB, Ohio St. TRADE: Denver sends their 2021 first rounder (9th overall), 2022 third-rounder, and WR Tim Patrick to Atlanta for their 2021 first-rounder (4th overall) 4. Denver (from ATL): Trey Lance, QB, N. Dakota St. 5. Cincinnati: Penei Sewell, OT, Oregon 6. Miami (from PHI): Kyle Pitts, TE, Florida 7. Detroit: Ja’Marr Chase, WR, LSU 8. Carolina: Jaycee Horn, CB, So. Carolina 9. Atlanta: (from DEN): DeVonta Smith, WR, A
  9. Signing Peyton Manning nine years ago. Nobody knew how healthy he really could be again, and if it would last for that long. Also, they moved on from an icon in Tim Tebow who everyone loved.
  10. Good points. I don't think they should have traded Wentz after the SB victory, but they should have the next year. Denver would have been all over that. The Giants and WFT needed a QB as well (although I don't see Wentz going to someone within the division).
  11. That was when the Bengals were recovering from the Dave Shula error, and they had to recover from this on top of that. What a sad franchise.
  12. 1. I don't know the details, but in 2003, Mike Shanahan tried to trade up into the top-10 to get Terrell Suggs (according to the Denver Post. I used to get the sports page delivered to my inbox back then). 2. In 1995, the Eagles almost acquired Mark Brunell from Green Bay, but he didn't want the length of contract that they were offering (too long). Before they could complete a deal, Jacksonville swooped in and stole him (another note: Jimmy Smith was in Eagles camp in 1994. He was working well with Randall Cunningham, but that idiot, Rich Kotite, kept WR/KR Jeff Sydner instead. Smith and
  13. A year or so ago, some people were a lot higher on Mond, projecting him to go in the first round in last year's draft. If Paton can't get one of the top 4, I hope he sees something he likes in Jones, Mond, Trask, or Newman. It would be a waste to roll with Lock again.
  14. Getting Moss would have led to the departure of A-Rod, so maybe they were better off, especially since they won their title in 2010. However, if they get Beast Mode around the 2010 trade deadline, and find a way to get Gonzo a year later (maybe send injury fest [Jermichael Finley] to KC for him), it definitely improves their chances of winning more than one ring.
