    Why on earth would Walker do that?
  2. Giants to pick #2 in 2018 NFL Draft

    A little over 20% of 1st round picks are busts. So if 30% of 1st round RBs are busts then so be it. The thing about RB is that a studly RB likely has the most impact on the outcome of a game outside of QB. Given the weapons we have through the air we're a stud RB and a decent O-line away from having a terrifying offense. We CAN make one more Super Bowl push with Eli IMO. The team just needs to plug some holes. If we can keep opposing defenses on the field in the 3rd and 4th quarter with a solid running game it's going to improve the whole team.

    Leonard Fournette, Christian McCaffrey, Elliot, Gurley, Trent Richardson (but it was the Browns) , C.J. Spiller, Darren McFadden, Adriand Peterson. 6 out of the last 10 years was there a RB taken in the first 10 picks. So 8 out of the 100 top 10 picks in the last 10 years were running backs. So saying "you can get similar production later" isn't based in fact and saying tha tthe best RBs in the league were taken in outside the top 10 is also a bit folly. You can make that claim about MOST players at most positions.

    The players helped set the market so...not sure what they're complaining about. There needs to be a salary floor for teams, younger players should probably hit FA sooner, and the luxury tax is likely...not really helping players get paid. Also, the current FA is pretty garbage. The best players available really aren't that good. Expecting to get the usual contract lengths + AAV is folly.

    The luxury tax is at least part of the reason why some of the players haven't been signed yet. Also think that teams should be required to spend all of the regular season money they bring in. AKA you don't profit from anything other than the playoffs and the fact that you own a major league franchise (which, is still making a huge amount of money).

    Doesn't really matter. Sounds like they want to keep Eli at QB. If the Browns get set at QB then we're free to trade the #2 pick to whomever pays the highest price. AKA picks. Lots of picks. We need them. Sure, should probably nab a QB. But it gives us tons of options.

    Man it'd be amazing if the Browns signed Cousins...
  8. Giants to pick #2 in 2018 NFL Draft

    We'd get a kings ransom if we traded down even a couple slots. If we don't draft a QB at 2 that's where my hopes lie. Get the same guy we would've picked at 2 (non-QB) and pile up picks.

    Can we stop acting like Jeter is the GM? That'd be great.
  10. Vikings OC Pat Shurmer hired to be HC

    Both coordinators are gone. What new head coach would want to keep coordinators they don't know and have never worked with (also, didn't pick).

    Robertson + Ellsbury is what, $35 million next year? Even if the D'backs would do that from a player perspective they can't afford to do that.

    Thread title is very misleading.
  13. Orioles Asking for Offers on Machado

    Poor O's fans. Talk is now that Angelos won't sign off on any trade. Enjoy the draft pick.
  14. 17-18 Hot Stove Thread

    Sure you do. Do you want a team with aging stars owed millions or do you want a team with young guys with high ceilings making next to nothing? I'd take the latter...
  15. Orioles Asking for Offers on Machado

    So wait, why isn't a SS capable player who can hit 30HR and steal 20 bases worth $400 million? His walk and strikeout rates are good (or at least reasonable) as well...
