  1. Myles Garrett suspended indefinitely

    Neither of those pictures confirm your position though. The first is inconclusive AT BEST and I think that's being incredibly generous. There is nothing in that picture that proves he kicked Garrett once much less "repeatedly" as you inferred previously. If he had, I have to believe we would have more conclusive evidence than one still frame at an awkward angle that shows nothing. The second doesn't even make sense. One picture does not show the entire scenario. He didn't try to get his helmet back because he rushed Garrett afterwards? According to this picture, Garrett never even struck Rudolph with the helmet, right? He was just holding it away from him and keeping it from him, according this picture. Even if Rudolph wasn't going for his helmet (which is debatable), it seems like a weird thing to nitpick considering the sentiment of the statement I made was that unequivocally stating he "re-engages to fight him" is colored perspective.

    I think the fact that they have consistently erred on the side of player safety suggests a shift in the interpretation of the rules as opposed to "making bad calls". I personally say it's a bad call because I feel like QBs should generally be treated the same as others, but I believe the increase in flags for RTP is more of a redefinition of the rules.

    1. Irrelevant for reasons in my previous post. 2. The only part of this that has any merit is that he likely he tried to pull off Garrett's helmet. 3. Agreed. 4. "to fight him" is subjective. He doesn't throw a punch. He is screaming, pissed, trying to get his helmet etc. but nothing there says he is trying to engage in a fight. 5. Agreed.

    This is obviously flawed logic though. I mean, was there no pass interference against Robey-Coleman because no flag was thrown? In fact, there was no flag thrown on Rudolph during this play, so clearly he did nothing wrong, right? I don't think it should be a RTP, but in 2019 that gets called more often than not for sure. We have seen it called on FAR less egregious plays than that.

    I feel like that sack is absolutely a roughing the passer in 2019. Should it be? Probably not, but it absolutely is in 2019. I have seen absolutely nothing that makes me think Rudolph tried to punch/kick him below the belt. I am not even 100% sure Rudolph was trying to rip off Garrett's helmet (to me I could see it both ways - either he was trying to push/peel him off or maybe he was but I don't think its 100% conclusive). I'd say I'm maybe 65% sure? I wouldn't have an issue with Rudolph getting a game or even two, but I am not losing sleep over him just being fined. I think Pouncey getting 3 games is light, comparatively. I don't buy the argument you are "supposed" to exacerbate the situation to "protect" your QB and that mitigates punching and kicking another player somehow. I'm fine with a game suspension for Ogunjobi. Don't think many disagree with that. I think anything from 6-10 games is reasonable for Garrett. Overall, I'm okay with the way the league handled this.
  6. No disrespect but that is a terrible take. Andy has absolutely changed this franchise around. This is akin to the Steelers fans who were talking about moving on from Tomlin in the off-season. It’s just so hard to find a better coach in the offseason as there are a LOT more Todd Haleys than Sean McVays out there. The idea that players or even coaches should be “expected” to win SBs is just crazy. Winning games? Sure but it is stupid hard to win SBs in the NFL.
  7. Does Tomlin Deserve Any Credit for This Season?

    Tomlin is one of the most underrated coaches I can remember. He's a HOF lock and one of the best coaches in the game (after the Belichick-tier, of course).
  8. NFL Week 7 GDT

    What a terrrrribleee call in the HOU game
  9. What if Calvin Johnson went first overall?

    He would have been a nobody if he didn't have Jon Kitna, Matt Stafford, Shaun Hill and Dan Orlovsky propping him up his whole career.
  10. Jalen Ramsey traded to the Rams

    Spinks was a champion and gold medal olympian to boot. He lost once in his career - to Tyson.
  11. Jalen Ramsey traded to the Rams

    They traded for Ramsey though.
  12. Jalen Ramsey traded to the Rams

    Oops I thought he meant the PFF coverage specific grades. You da real MVP, thanks.
  13. Jalen Ramsey traded to the Rams

    No i'm just a bum freeloader taking what they allow me to see.
  14. Jalen Ramsey traded to the Rams

    That's fair. Rereading my post, it sounds like I was suggesting he was a bum in 16 and 18 and that's not the case. As you mentioned, simply much more inconsistent. I really just meant he was not the 2 1sts + 4th round player you would hope to be trading for. I HATE using PFF because I think it's super subjective, but CB is a hard position to have great statistical data on. His grades over his career are: 2016: 72.8 2017: 90.6 2018: 72.8 2019 (to date): 59.6 Again, take these with a grain of salt, but to give a general ballpark reference.
