    Give me the raiders FA pickups and I would be ecstatic
  2. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    On one of the scouting reports I viewed of him, it talked about they aren't sure which position he would play, which I assumed meant a possible switch to TE. He is big enough to do it. You're right though, very pedestrian athletically for a receiver and wouldn't be that great for a TE either. But he does have size and like I said, I like how aggressive he is at going after the ball.

    I just watched some of cody Thomspon... I thought he looked good. Nice size, decent speed, natural catcher. You have to watch his older stuff because it looked like his qb play this year was atrocious. At least it was in the Fresno game this year. Lil Jordan Humphreys was impressive to me in the sugar bowl too. He was aggressive in wanting the ball, at least in that game. He is going to run slow though.

    Hadn't seen him before, seems like a decent player. I don't think he has Adderley's COD, ball skills or range in preliminary viewing. But not bad. Seems to be around the ball alot. I'd have to see more before I would say he could be a single high safety.

    Uga ran alot of read option, which to me suits Fields skillset. He wasnt a polished passer in the limited reps I saw him play. If and that's a big if in my opinion he told fields to shut down his recruitment early that is an arbitration. He has told several high profile recruits to go out and enjoy there visits as when they commit to UGA he wants them to be certain. See justin haselwood. It makes zero sense to me that he would talk down Fromm. He had Eason there during Fields recruitment and if Fromm was so terrible he would have tried harder to hold onto him. Not to mention what coach would tear down their own players? That to me would mean that he would tear down me given the chance (assuming I was fields) especially given UGA was undefeated at that point in the season. Is there some salesmanship in all recruiting? Absolutely. But that spreads to recruits and UGA wouldn't have had the #2 class if he was downright lying imo. I have a feeling Fields would have felt he was told he was sold a bag of lies no matter where he went as long as he wasnt starting. Good luck to him at Ohio st. UGA will get another top Qb this cycle to make up for his departure and I am excited with mathis' skillset.

    Nope, adderley

    ? I'm not sure how Kirby lied to Fields. He was told there would be a competition for the starting job, he was never promised the starting job. He stated so in an interview after he committed. There was a competition, and Fromm didn't get named the starter until several games into the season. Fields didn't get the job. Fields might have felt that it wasn't a fair competition which is his prerogative. I'm not sure how that equates to Kirby lying to him. Also, yes, poorly playing players get replaced, I'm not sure how that is news. See Tyson Cambell. Jake performed well outside of the LSU game, but that one wasn't just on him. That was the whole team was just terrible that game. I agree with your second and third paragraphs but the first makes me scratch my head. Don't listen to the gator fans on the board.

    I'd love this trade
  9. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    I'm not really getting on him for his communication or not intending to. More, I think he should have stuck with baseball. Don't get me wrong, I love football and two innings of baseball will put me to sleep but you can't really do baseball and come back to football whereas you can do football and go back to baseball, at least easier. If I was a GM thinking about drafting him I would be wary that he would get bored of the NFL demands or if drafting him we didn't have much success at the beginning of his career and he didn't enjoy it he would flip to baseball. Especially with his height limitations. It would be different if he was 6'4" to me where he had a more prototypical qb body. He played fantastically at 5'9" in college but that isn't a guarantee of success at the nfl level. Any success at the NFL level is few and far between but it is especially rare at under 6' for the qb position these days. Basically I am saying if I was an NFL GM I would have a 2nd round grade at best on him. I'm not trying to disparage him as a player either, he is fantastic but he wouldn't be for me most likely.

    The only problem is I don't think you can trust Murray. Yes, he has said football is his priority and returned his money for being a first round MLB draft pick but you know if things don't go right he still always has that option. I certainly wouldn't trust it with a 1st overall pick or honestly a 1st round pick in general.
  11. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    If he's there in the 3rd or 4th round and it is a clean tear I wouldn't mind taking him. As I said in this thread or another, he may have been the best player I saw in action in this draft.

    So what if he knew the verbiage of the offense? Everyone in the nfl uses very similar terminology. He wasnt in on the calls and couldnt tell the defense what the play was. Cleveland was closer to being in the playoffs than they have been in what? Close to 20 years? After being on hard knocks this preseason. And the rams have won 24 games since being on the Amazon series. I dont believe for one second that hoyer gleaned one thing of significance from it. I guarantee that every team that has played them in the past two years has watched it. Again, I get why coaches dont want to do it, it's just another thing they have to deal with when not everyone else has to. But as a fan, I want to see it and dont buy that it gives anyone a competitive advantage that we would play.

    Awesome, I hate the down season of football. At least for other than the draft but you can only look at that stuff so much.

    I had a friend of mine who was married to a guy and they were forever calling the cops on the other. Seriously like a couple of times a month they would get into a physical confrontation. And she was just as physically aggressive or more so than her husband. As a matter of fact way more so. They eventually got divorced and then a couple of months later she took her own life. More so probably because her brother who she lived for had done the same thing about the time of her divorce than the divorce itself. Her whole life was intertwined with the police being involved. Some people are just that way. If you haven't been raised in it you cant understand it, I certainly couldn't and we were very close.

    Shoot I think I know about 3 couples who aren't in some kind of a bad relationship. Relationships are messy when people who have all their stuff together and heads on straight are in them. Find probably a partner of the 90 percent who dont have both of those things and it can be a powder keg waiting to happen. To be honest though it most likely doesnt happen any more often with professional athletes than any normal john or Jane doe it's just more publicised with more people watching.
