  1. Vikes635 2019 RB rankings

    Jeez I've looked at a whole six prospects and you've already looked at like 40 quarterbacks and 60 running backs. Looks pretty good, I guess.
  2. 2019 NFL Draft - Quarterbacks

    Hmm. That's not what I saw watching Finley. But I mean, as a Pats fan, if you're right, I would not be upset.
  3. 2019 NFL Draft - Quarterbacks

    I watched some of Daniel Jones and wasn't really super impressed. Here's my rankings so far: 1. Kyler Murray (Rounds 1-3) 2. Dwayne Haskins (Rounds 2-5) 3. Will Grier (Rounds 2-5) 4. Drew Lock (Rounds 2-5) 5. Daniel Jones (Rounds 4-7) 6. Ryan Finley (Rounds 6-7) I don't really get the hype. His release is either good or ugly, his decision-making isn't a strength, his accuracy wanes outside the numbers, he takes too many sacks because his internal clock isn't great, and his footwork wasn't great in the games I watched. He also looked bad under pressure. I also don't get the Cutcliffe thing - Jones didn't look great in the games I saw. He's got a big arm and average accuracy but I don't think he's really got a ton going for him if he doesn't clean up a lot of stuff.
  4. Rebuilding the Patriots

    I'd like to keep Hill. He looked good before he got hurt.
  5. He was hot garbage his last year. I think not having the neck injury extends that delay only a little while, and he'd be gone by now.
  6. New 7 Rounder With 1st Round Comments

    I'd like to see what the Patriots could do with Ta'amu. He's got some tools they could build off of.
  7. Rebuilding the Patriots

    Yes, he was released, but I hope he can come back (it's a longshot). He did not retire. http://www.espn.com/blog/boston/new-england-patriots/post/_/id/4816718/after-10-surgeries-malcolm-mitchell-still-hopes-to-return-to-nfl
  8. I doubt it. The current record is averaging beating your opponents by 20 points per game. The Saints led the league this year at +151. Double that, and you're still 13 points short of the record. Not to mention it's rare enough to see a team with a 14-2 or 15-1 record, which is basically a prerequisite to break the record (I'd argue you'd have to finish 15-1 or 16-0).
  9. Has Tom Brady has 3 different HOF Careers?

    Not borderline. 3 Super Bowls, 2 SB MVPs, a regular-season MVP, a passing TD leading season, a passing leading season, and a 16-0 season as a quarterback is Hall of Fame worthy.
  10. Ravens trade Joe Flacco to Broncos

    I think Foles can be better by a good margin.
  11. Rebuilding the Patriots

    I get that but I still hope Mitchell can come back.
  12. Rebuilding the Patriots

    Gotta bring back Mitchell and Gordon
  13. Ravens trade Joe Flacco to Broncos

    I don't get this. Flacco's not that good, and I'd argue he wasn't much better than Case. My WAR model had them both in the negatives this year. And Flacco's got a big contract, too. Denver has a pretty good roster, so why would they take on more money for a lateral move at QB instead of going for somebody who could help them make a playoff run??
  14. Rankings by position help

    Check out @CalhounLambeau's spreadsheet. It's the best draft resource you'll find for what you're looking for 100% guaranteed. It has players at every position and their height, weight, class, and, best of all, a Google Doc for each player with links to game tape.
  15. NFL General Random Thoughts Thread

    In retrospect, the 2014 quarterback draft class was really interesting. It had a group of five notable guys at the top that all excelled at different things and had (or will have) varying levels of NFL success. You had: Blake Bortles, UCF's well-rounded passer with NFL intangibles and pocket awareness Johnny Manziel, the playground wonder with marginal decision-making qualities and even worse intangibles Teddy Bridgewater, who NFL.com lauded as "rarely making mistakes" and being an NFL-ready decision-maker Derek Carr, Fresno State's big-armed, accurate, and athletic star and Jimmy Garoppolo, the FCS product with "the fastest release since Dan Marino," according to his Eastern Illinois coach I decided to go back and take a look at which quarterbacks hit the thresholds I've laid out for franchise quarterbacks: above-average decision-making, average accuracy, above-average leadership, average mobility, above-average pocket awareness, and above-average release quickness. Obviously it's not a perfect way to go about it, because hindsight is 20-20, but I used the NFL.com Scouting Reports to try to remove as much bias as possible. They each hit these many thresholds: Bortles: 4 (Accuracy, Leadership, Mobility, and Pocket Awareness) Manziel: 1 (Mobility) Bridgewater: 4 (Decision-Making, Accuracy, Leadership, Release) Carr: All 6 (Decision-Making, Accuracy, Leadership, Mobility, Pocket Awareness, and Release) Garoppolo: 6 Of course the Browns chose Manziel.
