    Would prefer to work with Jacksonville over NE, but either can get it. My ideal scenarios:

    JAX: Calais Campbell and a 3rd for Hayden Hurst. Obviously an extension would have to be agreed in principal prior to the deal. Campbell should give us 2 years at a huge need with probowl level play. We also acquire an additional pick which can be used on a replacement TE.

    NE: 2020 3rd and future 2nd. The Patriots are desperate enough for weapons and seem to be desperate to win back Tom Brady for the next few seasons. They might be willing to sell the future to our benefit.

    Obviously I’m the only one here in the pro-trade group. I think Hurst has become more and more vocal with regard to his lack of targets. While it hasn’t been a big blowout yet, I feel it’s coming down the pipe... and once it happens we will be dealing from a position of weakness. Right now we have the leverage to acquire top value. I think Hurst at this point is at a point where he could potentially supply us with two 3rd round picks in value. So even if we have to accept slightly less (3rd and 4th), I’m down.

    The fact we're having this conversation makes me despise Greg Roman more and more as the days go by. Unless we're getting a couple 3s or a 2 and a 4th like you said, I'm in the camp to keep him.

    As a fan of the sport, id like 20 games. 

    As a fan of the players 16 is plenty.

    Can you explain to me why? I'm really curious to know why. We have more than enough games. And as I said above, the NFL was the one sport to me that didn't have over-saturation like everyone else does. What is accomplished with a 20 game season? We already see how lame the Thursday Night Games are, but people want to add even more games? Seems outlandish to me, lol. But they're gonna add them so it doesn't even matter. Like I said, I'm on the out far as the NFL goes anyway.

    I lied I'm hooked again lol

    It appears the BR mode is supposed to come on March 10th. If the rumors are true, I'm glad they're adding the ping system like in Apex. My only gripe based off the rumors is that stupid 1v1 mode in "prison" if you go down.  Either my teammate brings me back by reviving me or I die. Let's stop trying to be too cute. But ugh... time to get ready to get PS+ back.

    It sounds like in this case, as with most fans, they’ll cater to the new NFL. Whether that be at 16, 17 or 20 games. Is anyone really going to not be a fan over one more meaningful game played, and hopefully fewer preseason games?

    I'm probably in the minority, but I'm not a fan of "one more meaningful game". What will be gained from one more game? They're just adding a game to monetize it. It doesn't add anything to the sport. You're at a perfect 16 game schedule with byes. Next its gonna be 30 games and the whole league makes the playoffs. It's just getting dumb, in my opinion.


  5. Manfraud is the goofiest Commissioner I've ever seen in my life. Just add everyone to the playoffs while you're at it. And that picking your opponent just took the cake on stupidity. Bauer said everything correctly while getting in his a-- about these goofy changes. Manfraud is such a clown. Should've been torched after the whole immunity debacle.


  6. 17 games are just dumb. I hate that every sport are trying to continue to add more games. Especially Goodell and the clowns in the NFL Office who really want to shove the NFL down my throat 365. Like, relax, give me a chance to miss the game. But they'll continue to over-saturate the game until I completely don't care anymore. Pretty close as-is, but this definitely won't help.

    What complicates things is that Garrett actually did not go public with the accusation. He discussed what happened with NFL investigators, and they leaked it to the media. It appears he wanted to keep what happened private, and not give any excuses for what he did publicly. That is way different than Smollet who went out of his way to stage an incident and then publicize it. 

    This is one of the reasons why I believe it. But we'll never know and if true, Rudolph will get his comeuppance. And if it isn't true, Garrett is a whole clown and will also get his comeuppance. Either way I'm glad all 3 teams in our division are burning to the ground. Because reasons! icon_lol.gif

    On jimmy smith, I’m thinking they are trying to get him on a reasonable deal (maybe something like Carrs current series of options). If Jimmy is back, I’m guessing Carr is gone. May be tough to get that done though unless he’s willing to take a bit less than market to stick in Baltimore. 

    I think Jimmy might take less than market since he and Harbaugh are supposedly 'real cool'. And he has expressed his desire to finish his career in Baltimore, so there's that as well. I hope they get it done as Jimmy is one of my favorite Ravens. I always harp back to the Superbowl run where he cracked Crabtree on 3rd and goal separating him from the ball. One of my favorite plays.

    whaaat that's disappointing. I heard Quavo is in it.

    I guess spoiler, yes, Quavo was in it. And yeah, just was a slow burn for me. That doesn't mean you wouldn't like it. It was still cool, but I was expecting more I guess you could say.

     


  10. I want Eric DeCosta to play Madden.

    • Re-sign Jimmy Smith
    • Sign Gerald McCoy
    • Sign Donte Fowler Jr.
    • Sign AJ Green (or) Emmanuel Sanders

    Then supplement through the draft. Trade out of the 28th spot and get another 2nd, 4th (If its low-end 2nd, get a 2,4,5 based off chart value) Get a WR like Jefferson and let's go win a championship! *Pending Greg Roman bluffin' $#! of course*

    One step closer to never having to watch Tony Jefferson on the field any longer!

    It's long been a done deal that Jefferson wasn't coming back. He even said as much before the season was over. Then he confirmed it on his IG account like a week or two ago talking about how he took less money to come here and wasn't taking a paycut. He got the scissors the moment Clark took the field. He's been done. And good signing for the Ravens. Let's make the most of these 3-year deals and get a chip out of it. We're on the clock.

    They want kick returns, not touchbacks or fair catches. So if its too close to the ST lines they will probably fair catch it. They also want more offense. Neither of which are bad ideas. 

    That's all fine and good, but the 45 of the opp is still absurd, imo.


  13. Didn't see the Dragons play live, but saw the highlights on YouTube. Austin Proehl looks like he gonna be a missile for sure. Overall, not bad play from the XFL. Still hate their kickoff rules. Because it didn't stay up to the 20 you go to the 45 of the opponent's side? Outlandish. But looking forward to today's games live.

    He's a team option, so it wouldn't be a cut. It'd like either him or Jimmy back as an outside CB body, even though they obviously bring different rewards/risks. Don't see both coming back 

    If both aren't coming back, I don't see how anyone wouldn't want Jimmy over Carr. (Outside of the injury issues of course) For me personally, Jimmy is a sign at all cost player. I believe that the Ravens will get the deal done on him unless some random teams comes out of nowhere and pull the heel turn.

    What rules specifically?

    I haven’t paid to much attention to it. I just think it will be a fun game to watch. Gonna be tempo, which should be interesting. Really want to see the Rules for after a TD and rules for OT play out

    https://www.xfl.com/rules

    It's a few. I'm not a fan of the kickoff where they can't run until the ball hits the ground or the person catches the ball
