  1. ben wins 1st and 6th place

    It's basically a list of the most targeted WR's.
  2. Raiders sign QB Mike Glennon

    I don't think Gruden is an idiot. I know. But this has nothing to do with Brown. Gruden's moves have made little to no sense since the start.
  3. Raiders sign QB Mike Glennon

    This is a Jon Gruden team that just signed a veteran journeyman QB. Carr is going to be benched for Glennon and third on the depth chart by week 4. Bank on it.

    He very clearly did lose, though. And yet you have guys like Florio running around saying that people aren't getting the point of it all.

    Hearing Brown and now Bell cry that they weren't happy with how close they were to Ben has probably be one of the more entertaining aspects of all this. Two grown men complaining that they weren't close enough with another grown man. Bell wanted to be his friend? You have two guys who are throwing the franchise under the bus because they both wanted to get paid top dollar. Bell is going to throw teammates under the bus to rehabilitate his own image. Why did your teammates trash you? Because you decided to cut off all contact with them and keep them in the dark as to what the hell you were planning.

    This story is good for a few laughs, from SI. Claims that two former teammates say Ben is the source of problems in Pittsburgh, even though one of the two players explicitly states the opposite at the end of the article: https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/03/15/ben-roethlisberger-leadership-problems-criticism-antonio-brown-trade-raiders-leveon-bell-season-jets Redman and a guy who was part of the team for like 8 games after being signed off the street. Meanwhile, no one can actually explain how Ben is responsible for anything related to Bell. Like, he was sitting there in the negotiations telling Leveon that he wasn't worth no $17 mil a year.
  7. Le'Veon Bell signs with Jets for real this time

    I for one can't wait until two years from now when the Jets actually do cut Leveon and he never actually gets close to any $35 million. Now we're already seeing that it's $25 million guaranteed. There's people claiming that one injury and Bell would have been screwed when part of the guarantees the Steelers offered and which are being dismissed were for injury. The $10 million number cited was what was "fully" guaranteed right upon signing, but... He would have collected $20 million before he ever had to take a snap on that contract. So what are you even going on about? You can repeat yourself all you want. There was like 0% risk to Bell. And then you go and cite some inflated incentives tacked on at the end of the deal to save face. The deal the Steelers offered paid out more money over the first two and three years than what the Jets just gave him.

    Well, if we're going off what Bell's agent said publicly, then even he said the $10 million in guarantees was inaccurate. When Bell repeatedly stated he wanted to be the highest paid RB with the highest paid AAV, I'll take him at his word, personally. I'll also point out that you are dead wrong on the HOW the Steelers intended to pay Bell. Because he was going to get, reportedly at least, a $10 milloin signing bonus and a $10 million roster bonus almost instantly after signing. How much money is that again?
  9. Le'Veon Bell signs with Jets for real this time

    Actually, per Bell's own rap lyrics, he wanted a higher AAV. That number kept going up. It wasn't until the start of last year that we started hearing more about guarantees. The initial report on the Steelers offer had something like 15-20 million in guarantees. Then reports stated it was "only" $10 million in fully guaranteed money. The rest "only" being guaranteed for things like injuries. Literally every argument being put forward by those defending Bell's decision is wrong here, even wrong when factoring in that we only really have speculation as to what the Steelers contract was. Every detail is being twisted in the most favorable light to Bell right down to people moronically assuming that all $35 mil of guarantees the Jets gave were "fully" guaranteed no matter what. This deal was so great that Bell was stuck trying to gin up phantom interest and bidding wars over his services and he delayed signing it until the Jets nearly took it off the table. Bell's deal with the Steelers would have paid him $21 million in year 1. 33 million over two years, reportedly. And $47 million over three.
  10. Le'Veon Bell signs with Jets for real this time

    I love how the people attacking the Steelers offer to Bell are acting as if the Jets "fully" guaranteed $35 million. The Jets contract is going to give the team an out, likely after year two. Or that the Steelers offer only had $10 million in guarantees. Neither of these statements is factually correct. Bell is going to end up with tens of millions of dollars less than he would have. That is factually correct.
  11. 2019 Steelers offseason news

    Bell cost himself tens of millions of dollars here. They tacked on some ridiculous incentives he'll never hit so that he can puff out his chest and save face. He basically had one team interested in him.
  12. Le'Veon Bell signs with Jets for real this time

    Anyone who thinks Bell is going to get $35 million from the Jets, that those are actual guarantees, doesn't know what they're talking about. The notion that Bell only had $10 mil guaranteed in his offer from the Steelers is also nonsense. We've spent a year or more now hearing how the Steelers didn't respect Bell from a lot of people. How he was going to get paid and what a trailblazer he was. No, he's a moron who cost himself tens of millions of dollars. Antonio Brown looks like a rocket scientist compared to rappin' Leveon.
  13. 2019 Steelers offseason news

    At this point, if I were the Patriots I'd be screwing with the Steelers constantly. They supposedly offered their 4th rounder instead of a 5th like the Raiders to get Brown. All of 6 draft slots. How serious could that offer have been? They know their in the heads of the entire franchise. Regardless, I don't care if NE offered money. I know what this guy brings to the table as a Steeler. It doesn't matter what Belichick could do with him. Tomlin isn't Belichick.
  14. 2019 Steelers offseason news

    At the least it looks like Bell is getting his comeuppance.

    The question marks are what Mayfield does in year two, combined with the head coach. The talent is there on that roster, though. Earl Thomas and OBJ are legitimate generational talents. I'll give it a few days before I officially give up on Colbert, but the Tombert or Colmlin regime as a whole is just too fat and happy. Neither one has any fear of losing their job and it shows.
