  1. Patriots WR Josh Gordon reinstated

    What do you think missing the end of last season was? He was immediately suspended and had to apply for reinstatement, doing so only by continuing to participate in treatment/recovery Relapse isn't a choice. He didn't just sit back and think, man, I could really use a blunt right now. Whatever his demons are, they surfaced again last season and he self medicated The best example would be this. Convince yourself that Oxygen is illegal and then hold your breath. Embrace the Discomfort that eventually leads to Panic. See how long you can go before the fact that Oxygen being illegal isn't that much of a priority for you anymore and the only thing on your mind is breathing. When you finally take a breath notice how much better you feel and the problem that you were having, Discomfort and Panic is gone. Thats what it's like for addicts and those who treat their mental illness (whatever it may be ) with drugs/pills or alcohol There is a difference in the guys who recreationally use for fun, and just hope to not get caught, and the guys that are doing so because of a mental condition
  2. News and Notes: Offseason Edition

    I wonder f there was what appeared to be a tail between his legs...
  3. Patriots WR Josh Gordon reinstated

    There finally is LOGIC They've separated guys like David Irving who just shun their nose at the league and smoke weed because they want to and feel like it from the guys like Josh Gordon and Randy Gregory who have serious mental health issues and relapse when they've been triggered, Relapse is a major part of Recovery and the league has finally given guys avenues to recovery without being handed cookie cutter suspensions pretending all drug use is the same. From what I understand Gordon has a form of PTSD from his childhood and Gregory is medically Bi-Polar

    The league is finally understanding that Relapse is a HUGE PART of Recovery. It's not cut and dry for those battling mental health problems and addiction
  5. Report - Dak Seeking 40m Per Year Deal

    Michael Thomas's actual deal is 3 years 45 million. The rest of it is all hogwash and salary manipulation The breakdown of it makes it 3 years 45, then he'll be renegotiating or he'll be cut
  6. Report - Dak Seeking 40m Per Year Deal

    Because, without his wife he'd be flat broke right now only taking 18 million in those years he coulda gotten 25? He's probably made 350 million ish in his career including endorsements, Had he fleeced the Pats for every cent he could have got he might have made 400 million He's not a welfare Queen who could only make it work because thank god Gisele also collected a paycheck
  7. Prescott seeking $40m/yr

    Put a 1st round tender on Dak at the end of the year. If he signs elsewhere we have the right to match or we get a 1st round pick Then we will find out what the "market" really is, and so will he
  8. Report - Dak Seeking 40m Per Year Deal

    Taking less certainly hasn't hurt Brady in terms of his teams success That extra few million is the difference from a replacement level player and a pro bowler at another position
  9. If he didn't have bad Luck, he'd have no Luck at all....
  10. That's why I can't stand this "Next man up" contract mentality I'd look at Cousins (28 million) JimmyG (27.5) Foles (25.5) Carr (25) Dalton (16.5) and offer Dak 28 Million Until he proves otherwise, This is his peer group and this is where he lives
  11. Prescott seeking $40m/yr

    I don't think we'd be bad enough to get Lawrence, but I'd let Dak play out his year and put a 1st round tender on him if we didn't want to keep him If he plays great, then Franchise tag and we'll talk again next offseason
  12. Prescott seeking $40m/yr

    If that's true then I bet there is also a long list of teams with huge offers ready to trade for him 2 1sts and a 2nd?, Isn't that what RG3 went for? What was the price Philly traded to get Wentz? I'm ready to sell high
  13. Prescott seeking $40m/yr

    If Dak sucks this year and isn't worth the Franchise tag I'd throw a contract offer at Bridgewater on the higher end (25mill), or a guy like Mariota or Dalton on the mid tier. (12-15mill short term). I would also seriously consider Brady if New England, for whatever reason moves on There's also the added bonus/factor that if Dak sucks, then the Cowboys probably sucked too and we'd be in the market for a new coach. Probably want that guy to have a say
  14. Guys have done it in the CFL for decades - I'm not saying they need to be elite at both, but you'd figure a punter could be a 70% placekicker from inside 40 yards in a pinch The fact I've seen Quarterbacks and Ochocinco kick in an emergency is ridiculous. As a punter, you's think it would be a handy tool to have in your box as Punters are entirely replaceable
  15. Prescott seeking $40m/yr

    Dumping money into this year to lower the cap hits for future years doesn't make a differance anymore now that you can roll unused capspace into the next year If Dak wanted a better rookie contract, then he should have had a better college career. If he wanted to get noticed and go to a "Big School" then he should have played better in high school We don't owe anything to Dak for the previous 3 years or this one. He should be grateful Romo got hurt when he did or for all we know Romo could have played the last 2 or 3 seasons and Jerry might have replaced him with a big name FA and Dak would still be the backup He fell into a perfect situation with a top RB, a stout O-line and an up and coming young defense. Every QB's wet dream
