  1. To be fair, most lines that have a good center that stays healthy will help into a solid unit. Also LDT in the backfield…
  2. Forgot this last night. Kids were coming over for their Jiu Jitsu private and I was like hey let’s bust out a couple quick sets of squats at my old warm up weight… immediately felt the hammies tighten up and let’s just say the kids did not get the most fluid instruction last night. As far as the actual topic. I came in here with a how did the backup QB get hurt when Carr is playing well and isn’t hurt? Looks like this will actually hurt the Raiders as Mariota was contributing some yardage in special packages. Losing a weapon like that will set them back a bit but not like they were r
  3. Week 2 Pick: Bengals 😂 every year I gamble on the bengals and every year they find a reason to get me knocked out of this thing. This is my year though. Andy Dalton looks horrible in Chicago and was literally skipping balls to receivers last week. Let’s go Bengals! If they win I will do an old school Icky Shuffle in my living room.
  4. Dalton looks below average. Like time has taken away what once was and now he is out there skipping balls to receivers. Not good for Chicago who was hoping for an upgrade.
  5. I’d love to know if he was ever that special to begin with or benefitted from surrounding talent. Steelers had prime Antonio Brown stretching the field during Bell’s good years and of course Ben. He was nothing special in New York or KC and it’s hard to say he physically stepped back that much with the gap year. Maybe it was the accumulation of touches or maybe he wasn’t ever the superstar his stats suggested. There’s guys that change teams and continue producing ex. Clinton Portis and then there are the dudes that are duds elsewhere ex. Mike Wallace, David Boston.
  6. I defended Reggie for a long time. Hitting on Carr and Mack and adding solid talent made me overlook the fact that his coach selections were eyebrow raising. Mattock and Gruden have been a step back from the direction Reggie had the franchise heading in though. How much longer is left on that fully guaranteed Gruden contract?
  7. Favorite Team: SDSU Aztecs Week 1 pick: San Francisco 49ers I have read all of the rules and agree to them.
  8. The script goes Saints will be winning the division. Jamie’s will get hurt. Hill will be awful. Rivers unretires and comes back in December to secure the division and win a Championship. Herbert immediately starts counting the days until his contract expires and he can sign with the Saints to get his Championship. Reality is probably the Saints will fight for a wildcard and the instability and potential controversy will ultimately derail them. I don’t see Brady not winning the division.
  9. I mean if you are going to bring in a guy just to not completely mess up his assignment so that other linemen can at least see where they are supposed to be it makes sense. Cthulu help the bears though if they are depending on him to stay healthy in live action though.
  10. Washington is one of those states that is no bail for domestic violence. You will appear before a judge before being allowed to post bail. Sherman was already fighting Father Time. I don’t see him being a roster spot during cuts with this looming over him. Have to think this is it for him as a player.
  11. Hopkins for me but it’s really splitting hairs. I just feel the offense benefits and gets to be a bit more creative play calling with Hopkins. Hopkins will beat you short, sidelined, over the middle or deep. Tyreek you either want to go deep or short. I don’t recall Tyreek making the toe tap sideline move the chains catches or ever go over the middle.
  12. Best Case Scenario: Herbert makes a mahomes second year progression and the ChargIRs curse is broken. Offense stays healthy and productive but the Derwin James led defense finally hits it’s stride. Worst case Scenario: Herbert has sophomore slump that leaves us scratching our head on if he is a franchise guy. End up with a draft pick outside the top ten But no playoffs.
  13. Chargers make sense from the perspective of the goal isn’t to win a championship but to develop a fan base. A superstar quarterback goes a long way towards that goal and Julio Jones helps a quarterback tick upwards. Julio, KA13 & Mike Williams with Ekelor available as a safety valve will sell tickets and put stats up. Championship not in the equation Julio might make the Chargers more long term money then a first round pick.
  14. 32 pages about a camp body? Man this dude has the power.
  15. Packers offer a Rodgers Mahomes money, the relationship will magically be healed. We can all pretend this is about something else but I’m pretty sure it’s just money and a big fat signing bonus.
  16. They should have just traded for Peterman. He’s shown he will make some big splash plays. Would fit right in with the current Texans culture.
  17. And yet I haven’t even been asked to try out.
  18. Jamarcus Russell’s first pass in the NFL was so lulz. Helped it was straight into the hands of my favorite team at the time.
  19. It’s hidden behind a paywall. I’m not getting excited. Dean always has the money for the most important thing. Lawyers. Bottom line, the foundation was set up but AG and had certain pledges in place. The Chargers organization was supposed to make enough money to honor those pledged. AG was a really good dude. Dean though has not been a good dude, or business owner and hasn’t been able to continue honoring those pledges.
  20. He just never found the light in the Chargers “system.” It’s hard to evaluate him. There was zero continuity, overall talent level of the line was low & then health. He definitely contributed to the lack of linemen being available on game day. I hope he finds success in Buffalo, had high hopes for him in San Diego but... things didn’t work out.
  21. Considerable charitable pledges. At least from what I took from the article. They have splashed X amount fo money from the estate to maintain whatever AG felt needed to be maintained. The Estate has not been making money on the Chargers... probably due to low fan numbers, piss poor decisions making, a relocation fee, an inability to sell out a soccer stadium and just general distaste for Dean. Rather then not make said contributions the estate borrowed heavily due to a lack of the Chargers franchise providing income. The estate is now in debt and reaching the sinking point and needs
  22. Supporting cast will always be a factor as well as level of competition. I’m a big hater of USC players coming out just because they play on a loaded roster. Like it’s hard not to look good when everyone around you is great. NFL wise though there are two quarterbacks that immediately spring to mind when I think of supporting cast. They weren’t system guys or bad QB’s hit they benefitted from their team being loaded. Trent Dilfer would have been pretty interchangeable with any average starter in the league when he won his championship and Aikman would not have had a hall of fame career had he n
  23. Tag your it. Thank you. I just copy pasted KC_Guys depth chart into the FFMD thread, it's beautiful and gives a good jump off point.
