  1. All Time Offense?

    Wow surprised to see no mention of Barry Sanders the GOAT at RB. QB- Tom Brady RB- Barry Sanders WR- Jerry Rice TE- Tony Gonzalez OT- Joe Thomas OG- Bruce Matthews C- Mike Webster
  2. Browns trade WR Corey Coleman to the Bills

    Well this post from earlier in the week aged perfectly. *Pats self on back*
  3. Browns trade WR Corey Coleman to the Bills

    The Browns did get better by signing Tyrod Taylor who is an improvement over their QB's from last season. They also took a QB with their 1st overall pick, who may end up being a franchise QB. I'd hardly consider adding 2 upgrades to the QB spot in the offseason "settling for mediocrity"
  4. Browns trade WR Corey Coleman to the Bills

    Then worst case scenario if they can't trade him is they simply have more depth at WR. I'm highly skeptical of their move given the off field history's of Gordon/Callaway and them still being on the roster. Just doesn't make sense to me given the investment they had in Coleman as a recent 1st round pick that has shown flashes the past 2 years.
  5. Browns trade WR Corey Coleman to the Bills

    Dumb move by the Browns. Gordon/Callaway are still big question marks at this point. Coleman still has flashed potential the past 2 seasons despite the injuries. Should have at least hung on to him until the trade deadline to see if Gordon/Callaway are able to get the job done with Landry, and also see if Coleman could possibly show a bit more on the field to bring his trade value up above a 7th round pick, which is a joke for a guy drafted in the 1st round 2 seasons ago.
  6. Most of this can be attributed to our scheme changes as we statistically had one of the best Runningback duo's in NFL history last year. When called upon Brees was still excellent last year. In the playoffs last year he averaged 335 passing yards against the Vikings and Panther with a QB Rating over 100.
  7. Teams that are overhyped/underhyped

    I've been a huge Goodwin fan since his Longhorn days, and always thought he had the talent to be a much better pro than college player. I think he does have the potential to be a Desean Jackson in his prime type threat, but he just can't seem to stay healthy. I really hope this is the year he finally puts it all together and stays healthy.
  8. Teams that are overhyped/underhyped

    Overrated: Packers Underrated: Browns I've seen several claims that the Packers are going to be Super Bowl contenders this year. I just don't see it with their roster. I think wild card playoff birth is their best case scenario this year, but more than likely I see them as one of the teams to just miss out on the playoffs with them finishing either 2nd or 3rd in the NFC North. I think the Browns have done a good job the past few drafts, and in free agency. I think this is the year things start to come together for them after years of rebuilding. They appear to have much more talent than in years past, and I expect them to win 5 or more games this year, which may be a low bar for most teams, but would be an obvious improvement for them compared to the past couple seasons.
  9. Jared Goff vs Carson Wentz

    I'd take a healthy Wentz over Goff without much hesitation. However as many have mentioned there are injury concerns with Wentz at this point.
  10. Drew Brees Dan Marino Brett Favre Steve Young
  11. Darwin Quintero the guy with more twitter followers than Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs, and Dalvin Cook...Combined
  12. Still had 11 games to go and didn't appear to be as good as other teams in the NFC...Seahawks, Bears, Bengals, Cowboys were their wins...
  13. Don't forget the Packers for that list. They were getting tons of hype, but really didn't have that special of a roster. Similar to this year really. To an extent you certainly can look at what happened last year and see that it has bearing on this season. For example, we can look at certain players that have broken out, and see that they can be difference makers going forward: Alvin Kamara, Marshon Lattimore, Jared Goff, Todd Gurley, Carson Wentz, Adam Thielen, etc. come to mind. The opposite can also be true, we can see key players that show rapid decline: Jordy Nelson, Brandon Marshall, Adrian Peterson, etc. Looking at rosters from a pure talents standpoint, and recent success leads me to believe the Packers are not among the top 4 teams in the NFC coming into the season. Yep they had tons of young talent, and a new coach. They had a guy in Jared Goff who was a number 1 pick come out and play up to his draft status. They had a young innovative coach come in and help the team evolve into a playoff team. They also had Todd Gurley bounce back with a huge season who flashed as a rookie as being a potential star at RB. Most people already knew that they had the talent there it was just a matter of getting the most out of it that they can. I don't see that type of talent on the Packers roster, and the Packers have in my opinion a tougher division to play in this year. In 2016 the Eagles were also showing flashes of their future dominance as if I'm not mistaken the Eagles were one of the last undefeated teams in the NFL in 2016. They had their QB in Carson Wentz look elite at times in 2017. At the end of the day, I see the Saints, Vikings, Rams, and Eagles all being superior teams to the Packers from a talent standpoint, and going off of recent history. Obviously it is the NFL and anything can happen, but for now I just don't see a case for the Packers.
  14. I doubt they are even the best team in their division this year (Vikings). I really don't see what is so special about the Packers roster. Sure they have a great QB in Rodgers, but outside of that I just don't buy the hype with teams like the Saints, Vikings, Rams, Eagles, etc. in the NFC.
  15. Top 10 RB

    Butch Jones/Mark Ingram (2x Pro Bowl RB/2nd All Time leading rusher in Saints history). Also, these things happen where guys for whatever circumstances have better NFL careers than college careers. Two that immediately come to mind are: Tom Brady- Not much needs to be said regarding his college career compared to his NFL career. Priest Holmes- Played 4 years with the Texas Longhorns. In those 4 years he had the following totals for carries: 34 carries, 39 carries, 120 carries, and 59 carries. He finished his 4 year college career with 1,276 rushing yards. Priest Holmes in the NFL ran for 8,172 yards and 86 touchdowns. During Priest's rookie season he logged a whopping 0 rushes. Frank Gore- Never had over 200 carries in a collegiate season or eclipsed 1,000 rush yards in any of his 3 college seasons, but has had 9 seasons of rushing over 1,000 yards in the NFL. Terrell Davis- In 4 college football seasons never had over 167 carries in a season. He never eclipsed 1,000 yards rushing in a college season. In the NFL he had 4 seasons over 1,000 yards rushing and 1 over 2,000 yards rushing.
