  1. Cardinals to start rookie QB Josh Rosen over Sam Bradford

    Well it can’t get any worse.

    But why are they bad? Everything on paper looks good except for the offensive line.
  3. Steelers listening to offers for RB Le' Veon Bell

    I can't wait for this saga to be over with.

    Why do the Texans suck seemingly over night?
  5. Leon Hall - Probably the most underrated corner this past decade. Elite nickelback. AJ Green - Underrated future HOF. Career hampered by average QB play and small market.
  6. Week 4 Bengals @ Falcons

    I'm not optimistic about this one.
  7. Something is wrong with Luck

    He's fine. Give him time.
  8. Is Alvin Kamara the best Running Back in the NFL?

    I hate this logic so much.

    The more the experience the better, and obviously if you gain that experience from the jump you'll get better faster. But if that experience comes at the cost of giving the team a better chance to win, I think that's when they sit. Rookie QBs are traditionally pretty rocky. They have their ups and downs and take their lumps. So theoretically starting a vet like Bradford makes sense. I'd be a lot more comfortable taming a lion if I could watch it from safety for a year and learn it's tendencies etc., rather than get in the pit on my first day.

    The ability to stand in the face of pressure to make throws, not having happy feet, keeping good footwork/mechanics, not sensing a ghost pressure, being indecisive, step up or leaving the pocket when necessary, making good throws under pressure. The list goes on. My affinity for Darnold goes back to the preseason. To be honest with you and all Bears fans I watched the Bears/Cards game on DAZN last night. He looked a lot better compared to the Seahawks game. Speaking of poise, he did look more poised then from what I've seen from him in the past. The jury is still out on him. I don't want you guys to think I've written him off completely already. It'll be interesting to watch him as the season progresses.

    In a perfect world Bradford remains competent for 16 games and Rosen can take the season to digest the playbook and adapt to the NFL before being thrusted into the fire. I’m sure Wilks was hoping Bradford would of lasted longer than 3 weeks. The more time you can buy for your rookie QB the better.
  13. Week 3 Bengals @ Panthers

    I actually think Kirkpatrick has been playing well all things considered. He's not getting torched by any means and always finds himself in good positions but has just been extremely unlucky. He should have a couple picks like you said, and a play like John Brown's touchdown on TNF Kirkpatrick was in perfect position he just somehow made the play. Hopefully he get's some more bounces his way.

    Whatever you say. You're the "expert".

    Because 2016's defense is really relevant week 3 2018. That makes sense. They've been excellent this year. This isn't news to anybody. https://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2018/9/20/17874498/cleveland-browns-defense-win-myles-garrett-how Darnold's windup is fine. It is a non-issue. His accuracy and ball placement is also a non-issue. He's going to be a very good QB. He's a rookie QB who is taking his lumps. This is completely normal.
