  1. Jamie Collins Returns to Patriots

    I’m not saying I watched a ton of Browns football, but he did get over 100 tackles and lead the Browns in that category. So he either all of the Browns were jogging for most of the games, or he tried a little harder than that. That doesn’t mean he’s a pro bowler or giving 100%.
  2. Jamie Collins Returns to Patriots

    That’s interesting. They traded him in the midst of a Super Bowl run, purportedly because he was free styling and not performing his assigned duties. Now they bring him back. One would assume Belichick would only want Collins if Collins performed as assigned.
  3. NFL General Random Thoughts Thread

    ARLEN HIGH FOOTBALL COACH: I'd have to cut somebody... HANK HILL: Well, you got that exchange student who kicks barefoot. I think we've all had enough of that.
  4. Chargers Make Powder Blues Permanent Home Uniform

    are they trying lure Matt Schaub out of retirement? Or maybe they just want to fit in at the LA Kentucky Derby parties?
  5. Biggest Freak of all time?

    Shawne Merriman was an absolutely unblockable athletic freak in his prime.
  6. Should the Draft be Shorter?

    And yet tons of undrafted players enter the league, become starters, and/or stars. Kurt Warner, Wes Welker, Malcolm Butler, Adam Thielen, ect.
  7. Should the Draft be Shorter?

    MLB used to do a 50 round draft in a couple of hours. And they were drafting high school kids. I think three minutes a pick is plenty.
  8. Rookie Jersey Numbers

    It’s the loneliest number.
  9. Rookie Jersey Numbers

    The Patriots don’t believe in Rookie numbers: “The methods that have made Bill Belichick one of football’s most successful coaches continue to evolve, and he’s introduced a new one to the mix in 2018: rookies with random, non-permanent jersey numbers in spring practices. That’s why running back Sony Michel, the first-round pick from Georgia, was wearing No. 51 during Tuesday’s organized team activity. That number is illegal for running backs to wear in games, per NFL rules (numbers 20-49 are allowed), which highlights the point that Belichick is making to his newcomers. “Really not too worried about all the important stuff like that -- numbers and what color gloves you wear and all of that,” Belichick said Tuesday. “That’s not really at the top of the list right now. Trying to learn football, trying to become a team, trying to get better each day -- that’s really where our focus is.”” http://www.espn.com/blog/new-england-patriots/post/_/id/4813635/welcome-to-new-england-rookie-no-real-number-for-you
  10. Joejuan Williams-CB-Round 2, Pick 13 (45 overall)

    The Patriots sometimes draft a replacement a year or two in advance. What they usually do is draft a DB in the second round. The Patriots have drafted six defensive backs in the second round since 2011. They are: Ras-I Dowling Tavon Wilson Jordan Richards Cyrus Jones Duke Dawson Williams. Not a single one of the first five guys became a full time starter in New England. Really Jordan Richards might have been the most impactful and he played 3 seasons before leaving. If Williams is the number 3 corner in two years, it will be an improvement over the recent second round DB history.
  11. Joejuan Williams-CB-Round 2, Pick 13 (45 overall)

    His dead cap next year is over 15 million. I don’t see them cutting by him with that dead cap number.
  12. Damien Harris-RB-Round 3, pick 23 (87 overall)

    If he is, then doesn’t that speak to Sony Michel’s continued development.
  13. NFL Draft Day 3 GDT: steals and fodder

    Caleb Wilson is an interesting Mr. Irrelevant. He’s got some upside
  14. Joejuan Williams-CB-Round 2, Pick 13 (45 overall)

    Or Richard Sherman (which one would think would be the best case). Very deep group at corner.
