  1. NFL News & Notes

    I keep seeing people speculate about acquiring Duke Johnson. Why would the Browns trade him? Yeah, they have Chubb and Hunt, but neither of those guys is really a pass-game specialist like Johnson, and he seems to spend most of his time split out wide as a receiver, doesn't he?

    I thought the same thing. They're both fast, but MVS is the fastest WR we've had since... Javon Walker, maybe? Also, .05 doesn't seem like much, but it's actually slightly greater than the difference between Trevor Davis and Greg Jennings/Randall Cobb, who both ran 4.46.

    We don't have a younger Matthews or Perry to add to. Clowney turned 26 yesterday and is coming off three straight Pro Bowls. He would change our defense overnight.

    We need guys who can create sacks on their own. I like Pettine and I'm glad his scheme is creating sack opportunities for Martinez and the DBs, but you give something up on the back end when you send pressure like that. Imagine if we had an edge rusher who could hound the QB all on his own.

    Quin just turned 33. Obviously his best years are behind him, but he was really good in Detroit. Could be a possible veteran addition.

    Hunter Henry just played a playoff game 7.5 months after tearing his ACL. It's not inconceivable Simmons could return midseason.

    Someone had to post it.
  8. 2019 Draft Discussion

    Kyler Murray committing to football today initially made me hopeful another top defensive player will slide to #12... On second thought, I wonder if it actually makes our #30 pick more valuable if he's sitting there late and a team wants to jump the Patriots and/or lock in that 5th-year option.

    If you can get another EQ/MVS to be #5 and take the place of Moore/Davis/Kumerow/Lazard, there's definitely value in that IMO.

    Sign me up for Breeland at $6-7M annually. He shores up a position group that's been an Achilles heel for years. Without him, there are just too many question marks between King, Alexander, Jackson, and Brown. With him, I feel a lot better about that group and think it has the potential to be really good.

    Look up "hack" in the dictionary and you'll find a photo of Mike Florio. Trash article is trash.

    This is correct. He played 46% of snaps in Week 14 and 31% in Week 15.That second number is the same as Jake Kumerow.

    There was another play where Gurley immediately came open in the left flat. Once Goff found him three seconds later, he threw a bad pass at Gurley's ankles and he was tackled immediately for a loss.

    AMAZING game. Had everything you look for in a high-stakes football match: Some really good punts by both teams Several passes in the vicinity of a receiver The best player on the field mysteriously not getting the ball The old familiar thrill of knowing the Patriots would find a way to win The sweet sounds of Maroon 5
  15. Second Round WR - It’s Time

    I'm not even as sold on MVS as some others, but that is extremely untrue. If you go back and look at the draft threads from last year, Moore was the guy whose physical skills and highlights people were salivating over, EQ was the intriguing big name who had fallen, and MVS was the Janis-level project and presumed ST gunner.
