  1. Is there a limit on how many times a player can be protected on the PS? If not, this might be the list all year long...or at least until they decided to elevate the LS.
  2. Biggest problem was the Packers oline. Second biggest problem was the Saints oline.
  3. I know I mentioned it already, but I am getting serious Antonio Freeman vibes from Cobb coming back. Freeman was 31 when he came back to the Packers. Cobb is going to turn 31 next month (so only a few months younger than Freeman). Both had lost a step, both went to other teams with lesser success than in GB, both return. Freeman in his one year back was slow. He caught 14 for 141 (10.1 avg), a 3 yd/reception drop from the previous year. I distinctly remember his speed causing at least one interception because he didn't have the explosion to cut back to a ball Favre trusted Freema
  4. Has Antonio Freeman 2.0 been announced yet?
  5. Cobb = Favre's Antonio Freeman Electric Boogaloo
  6. According to that list, no one's going to pay Aaron Jones over 3.5 million. I'll take him back in a heartbeat for that. Major oversight.
  7. And when they muck it up, they'll be grateful for someone like Alex Smith to fill in. He's better than Foles at least (IMO).
  8. I'm assuming because he wasn't "can't miss". Like TJ wasn't "can't miss" despite the revisionist history developed since that draft.
  9. That's not exactly a wildcard. He has no leverage and won't until either his 5th year is up or he (somehow) becomes the starter and tears up the league.
  10. But if they can do it while maintaining gap discipline, doesn't it make the defense even scarier (in a good way)?
  11. I think that's a little dramatic. With the way the offense is called, I bet it's closer to 6-8 wins. If it was M3, then yeah, I agree on the 4ish wins.
  12. If the cap stays at the recently projected $180-185 million, there are going to be a lot of devalued contracts. Not for the stars who will still make their money, but for the rest. And that might have a ripple effect for the next few years. From a business perspective, that might be why the owners are pushing to take the cap hit all in one season--to take the losses now and benefit from generally lower contracts for the next couple years.
  13. So with Barry, M4's desire is to bring in the Fangio defense. Okay, got it. Anyone got a bead on Barry's ability to strategically call a defense? Let's assume without argument that Detroit and WFT were both absolutely undermined by the talent. I heard he didn't call plays in Detroit. So what about WFT? The only article I saw from that time was a criticism that boiled down to "the players aren't executing what Barry envisions". Based on the assumptive pretense that puts that at the talents' feet, did Barry demonstrate the ability to call plays strategically? Can he challenge an offe
  14. Barry is such an odd hire for an optimist to try to figure out. Any positives I hear regarding the hire all seem to fall under the "damning with faint praise" type at best or mental gymnastics of the most egregious sort at the worst. I want to be optimistic, but the best, practical reason for it is "his talent was atrocious at his previous stops". Not exactly a hopeful description. Anyway, I hope I'm wrong. I hope we're all wrong. But there has to be something I'm missing here.
  15. I appreciate the work you've put into this. I find myself far more informed than I ever expected to be on the potential candidates.
