  1. Ten years after Justin Tucker retires will anyone remember him? 

    Right now I remember a Vinatieri as a kicker and that’s about it. Maybe, can throw in Doug Flutie for drop kicking a PAT and Scott Norwood for hanging the Bills out to dry. It’s so hard to be memorable as a kicker.

    I mean...i'm sure the Seahawks are gonna celebrate stopping the juggernaut that is Big Ben so....

    Good point. Who would have though Ben crashing motorcycles without a helmet and not even learning how to slide until like his fifth year in the league would have the longer career of Rivers, Manning and Losman?

    Tony Sparano vibes with Bisaccia. I can see the team playing for him.

    We’ve got a better roster now than we did when Sparano took over also.

    Not expecting fireworks, but also don’t think he’ll be a disaster either.

    I’m expecting a huge improvement from the Raiders. Rich is an excellent coach and him finally getting his chance is going to be fire. I fully think he will win the job permanently. If not; I expect he shows enough to where a team that needs a total culture shift gives him the reins. Really happy this dude is getting his shot finally.

    Both have ridiculous arms, no point trying to find a differentiating aspect there. Use other things. 

    who is better under pressure? 

    Herbert definitely has the better hair. Probably best hair in the NFL if we are being honest. We haven’t seen hair like this since CBJ. 

  5. They say they are waiting for the swelling to go down. The untold story is Tyrod won’t let any doctors near him after the catastrophe of last year. Tyrod is a great guy to have on your team. If he plays he won’t be a superstar but you can expect average play when healthy. The true value is on the practice field, dude gives it his all every day and is a great teammate. Good film study habits and you could do a lot worse then having him in your roster.

    Except for that nearly decade of you guys having a top 3 OL in the NFL. Ya, ya, that was a while back. 

    Now excuse me while I go yell at the clouds.

    To be fair, most lines that have a good center that stays healthy will help into a solid unit. Also LDT in the backfield…

    Pre stretch, post stretch, foam roller, yoga - all required at our age, I can't tie my shoes without getting a bit loose.

    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 really going to push the Chiefs for the division. Hurts their wild card chances immensely though. One game will probably be the difference in making it or middle round picks.

  8. 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. 

  9. 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. 

  10. 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?

  11. 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. 

  12. 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.

    He was denied bail. I think his ability to sign with a team is the least of his worries. 

    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. 

  14. 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. 

  15. 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.

    Likely not. They should though. But the Packer FO is too conservative to ever make such a move. 

    I still hold firm that only a Super Bowl Contender should give up a 1st Round pick for him considering his age. The Patriots and Chargers, the two rumored teams, make no sense to me. They aren’t winning a chip this year, no chance. They likely aren’t winning one the year after that either. 

    I hope the Raiders don’t trade for him either. We aren’t touching the Super Bowl, with Julio or without Julio. I mean, I’d give a 2nd in a heartbeat, but the Falcons are going to demand a 1st. 

    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.
