  1. QB's are so over drafted at this point. Giants made the second best pick they could. Chubb is the steal of the draft at this point.
  2. They will soon be the Jacksonville/London jaguars and have quite a big advantage. Imagine if they committed to playing one game every year in London. They would be the home town favorites there and benefit from the crowd noise. However since they technically are not home in London it likely would alternate between being scheduled as home/away game. Jags get essentially 8 home games one year and 9 the following year.
  3. Josh McDaniels will still be hot next year.
  4. Is Ben still their QB? Then no the Steelers offense is not overrated. How good is Ben? How valuable is he to the Steelers. Well in the Ben Era, the Steelers have no used any pick in the first three rounds on a QB. That’s says a ton.
  5. Luck is better then Alex Smith no question. You can go back and read those first few years Luck entered the league and see Luck was regarded as top 5 and Smith as bottom 5, yet their stat lines were very similar. Obviously there are contributing factors but Luck has NEVER lived up to his pre draft hype. He was never a top 5 QB in this league. Fringe top ten at his peak.
  6. That and the pre draft hype. Then he comes into the league and puts up Alex Smith type numbers but he’s labeled a top 5 QB ahead of guys like Rivers and Ben. At this point I doubt he will see the field again. People will ask what he could have been? Exactly what he was. An above average starter who at times could be argued was approaching that top ten area. He was never a top 5 guy. Derek Carr has been better in comparison up to this point and still has room to grow to hit his ceiling.
  7. Seriously... how drunk was the guy that designed that stadium? Too big for the supporting city, then adds in a pool, now a dog park... maybe they could also add a kid zone with rock climbing walls and giant hamsterball wrestling.
  8. I don’t care about anything else in life. I would throw my credit card down right now to purchase a Dez Bryant Charger jersey.
  9. I saw him as comparable to a faster, smaller, version of Vince Young. Like you could do worse but you’re offense is very limited based on your QB skill set.
  10. Elway is really old but still looks to be in great shape. Tbh they probably could do worse. Favre played till he was like 90 and had to be retired for almost five years before I stopped thinking he was coming back.
  11. Carson Palmer- Ocho Cinco Joe Flacco- The DPI Drew Brees- Graham Eli Manning- David Tyree and his miracle catch. Tom Brady- Gronk
  12. Thomas never made that jump to elite #1 that I expected him too. Good player just never made that final push that I thought she’d get and be discussed with Bryant and Jones as the top guy in the league.
  13. TBH seeing his interview and the level of disrespect he showed his new coach coupled with the personal fouls and pro bowl mocking of his teammate, I sure as hell wouldnt want him on my team. Add in the salary he was set to make and it's a no brainer. No one says you can’t have fun. We all loved Clinton Portis but you don’t disrespect your coach, team and organization the way King has.
  14. Rivers doesn’t miss time. The guy is a maniac when it comes to playing hurt. I always judge our back up quarterback based on their duties of holding the clipboard and helping Rivers prepare. Clemons was exceptional at prepping Rivers. They’d carpool from San Diego in River’s tricked out SUV and watch film during the commute. I don’t know if Gene can do that. Looks like he is being brought in for some phantom idea that he has talent with his legs. A wasted skill in a quarterback for the most part. Even the great Testaverde only ripped off a few long runs in his career. I guess Clem
  15. Talented player for very little draft capital. Denver has a chance to come out looking really good in this. Redskins got value for a player that wasn’t interested in playing for them. Win/win:
  16. I don’t dislike Barksdale, he’s no Clary or Olivea. He isn’t fantastic. Just average to maybe slightly below average. You could find better but I feel it’s one of the spots you can definitely take a late round project type boom or bust player. First round pick can go any direction with DT being the most obvious. Wouldn’t surprise me if a top level LB is available we go that direction too. I feel better about this team this year then I have in a few years. The stench of Norv is finally out of my nose. CB is always a possibility in round 1. To be honest I’m more interes
  17. For me Ben is the most underrated quarterback since Testaverde. People forget how he lost Plax, Ward, Wallace, Holmes. The dude makes wide receivers a ton of money. Overated Andrew Luck. He was hyped as Peyton 2.0. Even on this forum he was hyped up like crazy and yet he routinely put up similar seasons to Alex Smith. One if talked about as a journeyman and the other is the savior reborn. Never made sense to me.
  18. Earlier in the thread game posted Telescos first round picks. Not saying he hasn’t gotten value out of later rounds but first round picks outside of Bosa are average at best. ps you know I hate Gordon. Slightly less then Matthews but still that kind of production out of a first round running back is horrible value.
  19. Giants trade down picking up a 2019 1st then yes they will be in a position to select a quarterback again. There isn’t a QB worth a top five pick. Stop overdrafting. This is Leinart/Young type of year. None of these guys are “can’t miss@ prospects. Let someone overpay for 2. Get a solid player in the first this year and pickup an extra 1st for next year and possibly multiple other extra picks. Whoever trades up to number 2 for one of these guys is going to overpay and get a rookie quarterback that isn’t complete package. That 2019 1st is going to be gold.
