  1. Laughing out loud at the idea that the worst case scenario the Rams is winning their division. I think they will be fine but you can't deny they have some dream team 2.0 potential with a possible worse locker room. Worst case scenario imo would be: Rams stumble out of the gate because the offense isn't clicking. It turns out that the impact of Matt LeFleur on the gameplan was actually a lot bigger then previously assumed and McVay is struggling to adapt and evolve his scheme. The offensive struggles cause tension to rise between the offense and defense, something that has happened before under Wade Phillips. Talking about the defense. It's damn scary on paper but the amount of things that could cause locker room strife is also pretty staggering. How will Suh deal with being second fiddle to Donald? Or Peters and Talib with the dline getting most credit? Now throw in the LA nightlife and I'm left wondering what the over/under is for at least one ram getting involved into some deadly altercation.
  2. NFL player stories

    Did you know Tony Gonzalez played college basketball at Cal?
  3. Dead Body found at Janoris Jenkins house

    Wait, are you guys telling me it isn't normal to have dead people on my lawn?
  4. It's sad how dead this sub forum is tbh. So lets see if we can start some sort of a discussion. What is everybody's thoughts/feelings about this years draft class? 1. Calvin Ridley: I really, really want to like this pick but I'm not sure if I can. Ridley seems to be a fine player and will be a very nice weapon for Matt. I just have a feeling Taven Bryan would have had a bigger impact overall. 2. Isaiah Oliver: I don't understand why this guy wasn't a first round pick. Dude is a long, fast corner and has these freakish long arms. Could easily see him become a bonafide CB1 in our scheme. 3. Deadrin Senat: Don't know much about him tbh but from what I've seen and read after the pick he seems to be a solid selection. 4. Ito Smith: Not that hyped. Would have liked a FB/Short yardage back at this point or maybe some more competition at OG. 6. Russell Gage: I really, really like this pick. CB converted into a WR, heard from some LSU fans QB play and horrible play calling held him back a bit. Fierce competitor and ST ace. I've got high hopes he'll turn himself into a legit WR. 6. Foyesade Oluokun: Had some decent film, likes to hit. I'm not really expecting him to push Riley too much since I really see the latter improving a ton this year. Still, for a 6th rounder he has some upside. Overall I'm pretty happy with this draft. Would have like some OG help but I can't really knock the FO for that looking at how the draft fell into place.

  6. Eagles LB Worrilow tore ACL

    The amount of people calling Worrilow a fringe player or making sarcastic remarks about him just proves the predictable and smartass nature of this board. All of you people try and impress each other with these funny text comments, from someone who doesn't spend all their life online, it looks ridiculous. Fyi Worriswole is the epitome of guy that "works hard" and "Is the first one in the gym and the last one to leave". I've got it from a dependable source that this season Worriswole was going to work so hard he was never going to leave the gym, not even for actual games. The mere idea of having to face a man who's deadlift routine gets counted in weeks instead of reps would have been enough to have the rest of the NFL forfeit their matches. 10/10 disastergrade on the Walter Cherepinsky scale.
  7. CB DeAngelo Hall announces his retirement

    Bucs should sign him on a one day deal just so Mike Smith can whoop his *** out of the building* ' *I actually don't hate the dude, hope he enjoys retirement. Don't think he'll ever get the yellow jacket he was talking about as a coach or FO executive though. He's no Ozzie.
  8. Worst places for visiting teams in the NFL

    I meant more from a players perspective. If you're not used to higher altitude you get gassed fast, at least in my experience. If Keenum plays like he did last year for the vikings I see no reason for the Donkeys not to be competative at home. Also I think its fairer to rank places regardless of how good a team is right now, but that might be me.
  9. ATL signs DT Terrell McClain

    DT is a weak position group for us. Jarrett is legit, Crawford flashed at times last season, Senat is a rookie and I'm not sure about any of the other DT's on the roster. Hence people expected the Falcons to double dip during the draft. Now that we didn't I'm happy TD is picking up some extra depth. McClain isn't an allstar but he should be better then a guy off the street.
  10. Which Division Sends 3 Teams to the Playoffs?

    Either NFC South or NFC North. Would be hilarious if it was the NFC East, has that ever happened since Bill showed up in that division?
  11. Saints cut Coby Fleener

    Plz no. I can't see the FO signing Fleener. Hooper might be due for a breakout year and Saubert at least deserves some time with his development.
  12. Someone just needs to design a run play with "banana" in it and that will all change.
  13. Flacco's fault?

    #ThanksJoeFlacco Tbh I feel bad for Lamar Jackson. He ended up on a team with Flacco and RG3. Flacco to me is impossible to read. I really, really doubt he'll care enough to take a rook under his wing. I don't even know if extra competition will feed his competativeness. He could end up Cutlering next season harder then Cutler ever did. Then you have RGKnee who might see a chance to grab a starting role or might be jaded by the entire experience. I wonder what kind of advice he will give Jackson.
  14. Saints cut Coby Fleener

    I read somewhere that Ozzie Newsome passed on Ridley in favor of Hurst because he believed TE's were more likely to contribute and less risky then WR's in the first round of the draft.* *Yes I realize that Perriman might have coloured his view on this topic.
  15. It wasn't on Matt. He trusted Freeman to pick up that block. Freeman didn't pick it up. Anyone that has ever worked or functioned in a team knows that sometimes you need to put absolute faith in a member of your team. If that person screws up you're screwed. That is what happened. I don't blame Matt for that one at all. Lets also not forget that the Falcons Oline was banged up beyond recognition. Mack was playing with a broken leg and Schreader was all banged up. They kept Matt clear for the first half but understandably so couldn't keep it up for a full game. Matt was the biggest reason we reached the SB. He has one of the highest 4th quarter comeback percentages in the league. He's a straight up baller. And he's "muh QB".
  16. 49ers cut Zane beadles

    Idk about you guys but I always thought Beadles sounded like a race of cute puppies. Colour me suprised when he didn't work out as an NFL lineman.
  17. Worst places for visiting teams in the NFL

    I can completely believe that. The Netherlands highest point is like 500m above sea level. I'm fairly sure the place I've lived in for most of my life is around 12m above sea level. When I moved to eastern europe for a while to do volunteer work my house was on 500m hill and the city center was down that hill. After 6 months I was in the shape of my life just by walking up and down that hill atleast once a day. Altitude really matters.
  18. Goldfish's Way Too Early Draft Rankings 2018 (Tampa Bay at 1)

    As always I really like reading your thoughts in these rankings. Thanks for putting in the effort once again. I get your concerns with only adding 1 DT in the draft but I'm not too worried about it (yet). I wonder if TD and co are actually anticipating the deep DT draft next year, I always have the idea the Falcons seem to be looking at deep groups for next years draft when deciding a pick. Personally I would have liked some extra competition at RG but I get the FO thinking they have enough competition for now with Schweitzer, Harlow, Garland and maybe even Fusco.
  19. Worst places for visiting teams in the NFL

    I thought we were discussing it in a more general way, regardless of the competativeness of the teams in question. If Keenum keeps up his play from last year they will still be competative at home.
  20. Worst places for visiting teams in the NFL

    You just beat me too it while I was still typing my post. That's what I get for phone posting I guess..
  21. Worst places for visiting teams in the NFL

    Surprised nobody has mentioned Mile high yet. It might be because I live in a pretty flat country but going from near sea level too a place that is that high would take some getting used too.
  22. CW21's 2018 NFL Draft Review (Browns Up)

    I can't believe you don't think my teams draft was the best of all time. We all know that even random 6th round pick number two already has his HoF bust being made as we speak.
  23. Where do you rank Witten all time among TEs?

    Tony G's blocking ability really gets underrated because of the last two or three years of his careeer. Consistency wise I'd also take Tony G over Witten. I liked Witten as a player but I do wonder if he isn't being overrated based on the team he played for. I'd agree with Kiwibrown that the backend of the top 10 all time is probably where he belongs.
  24. Reuben Foster charged with felony domestic violence

    All the talent in the world at playing football, no talent whatsoever in being a decent human being. Shame.
  25. Titans hire Matt LaFleur as OC

    Really startingto wish we'd have kept him instead of hiring Sark... This Titan team is starting to look good on the coaching side.
