  1. Police investigating Antonio Brown for possible battery

    is it just a matter of time before he finally hurts someone really bad and finally gets some years in a jumpsuit? What will stop all this, because we know it won't be the nfl, that's never happening again.
  2. NFL to try new onside kick rule for pro bowl

    I think the QB deserves some blame here. I could have made that play . btw, I never knew about this either, what a low point for the black hole
  3. Mariota

    I would opt to keep the players we have at QB and spend elsewhere. It sounds as though they will keep Dupree, so that will be it for UFA this offseason since there isn't much cap left anyways.
  4. from espn Like Mike Tomlin, Art Rooney II also wants Bud Dupree to return next season, and securing the OLB is a top priority. Dupree, an unrestricted free agent, is eligible to be franchise tagged, but the Steelers will have to balance a tight cap to get it done. "We'd like to have Bud back, no question about it," Rooney II said. "And we'll do our best to figure out how to make it happen. But we'd like to have him back, and I'll stay optimistic that we'll be able to figure out how to make that happen."
  5. Offseason Work to do

    Green has the injury concern. Saved cap space as it the cap used to sign players on top of the existing team total cap as it stands. They might have $20M to spend's, or less considering rookies. The colts will have around $90M, somehow some teams have all this cap remaining every year. I was surprised because I thought every team would almost max out their cap annually.
  6. Offseason Work to do

    considering how many teams have lots of cap space, I expect Dupree and Hargrave to get deals in UFA from other teams that the steelers won't match. With the would be cap space from a Dupree signing, would you let Ola and Skipper play out this season (maybe draft player too) and sign a player in the $15M range? This would be similar to what some expected Dupree to sign for, so would you sign say AJ Green instead? Or an OL? Maybe a slot CB or a CB and move Nelson to the slot. JJSS not staying healthy was a concern moving forward, especially since it's his knee. I see a new WR on the team either in UFA or a higher draft pick. Not AB either, he will be in jail by then
  7. Mariota

    What would Mariota price be anyways? I don't think he starts anywhere, but as a reserve, what cap value would you expect? I wouldn't sign him, if ben returns, just keep Duck and Mason. This team has other needs everywhere once UFA takes players from the roster. There are many teams that have cap space to sign UFA's, as a result I expect Dupree and Hargrave to get deals in UFA.

    it appears they have $21M, and if they remove watkins they will have more. They will make him the highest paid, but will it affect them 4 years from now? spotrac Adjusted Salary Cap $222,426,001 All Contracts $118,269,682 $45,731,837 $21,348,030 - $2,901,500 $4,705,416 - $192,956,465 Top 51 Contracts $118,269,682 $45,731,837 $21,348,030 - $2,901,500 $4,705,416 - $192,956,465 Dead Money - $8,174,041 - - - - - $8,174,041 Total (All) $118,269,682 $53,905,878 $21,348,030 - $2,901,500 $4,705,416 - $201,130,506 Total (w/Top 51) $118,269,682 $53,905,878 $21,348,030 - $2,901,500 $4,705,416 - $201,130,506 Cap Space (w/All) $21,295,495 Cap Space (w/Top 51) $21,295,495
  9. good point, the TO battle could decide the game. JG had these last few week easy, but will most likely have to throw a bit more in the SB.
  10. All 32 Starting QB's Next Season

    how does Elway decide he wants to sign a QB that his team defeated in the SB ? This is also now after Cam has the injury history to go with that SB loss . Thats quite a risk, unless it's a 1 year prove it deal
  11. Want To Win A Super Bowl? Don't Pay Your QB.

    If it's a really rainy game, then I pick the 49ers. If not, I pick the chiefs despite me preferring the 49ers style of play. I just think Mahomes is too much especially since his OL has been good at pass pro and he is mobile . It should be close and around 75 points . It should be a classic where strength meets strength, no history of cheating, and both teams are new to the SB.
  12. Want To Win A Super Bowl? Don't Pay Your QB.

    A separate QB cap, don't include it with the rest of the teams cap. That was strange how the top picks in the draft were also some of the highest paid players in the league. A major flaw they finally fixed. Now we will see what they have learned over the last 10 years on what to fix when the new deal is signed

  14. I watched this game, that's when I knew the 49ers were legit. In the dome and they matched offensive scoring with the saints. This SB should be great, hopefully the refs/weather don't ruin it . KC did get a few penalties in recent games on defence that, if repeated could be costly.
  15. Ruin could be part of the coaching to blame, and the problems with some players like AB, Bell and even ben, but of course ben is the QB so he gets do do whatever he wants. His drafting while overpaying his own offensive draft picks never helped the defence. The defence was a problem for a while, even with Shazier (I never liked hearing that excuse, the team still had no secondary) . At least last offseason he addressed the defence, finally. Re: QB eating 1/6 of cap - this is the one that whines about his OC, has to have everything his way and then doesn't play as good as his contract. Thats another problem, not all colbert, but when he signs a player to such a deal, they should play really good. When a Team has this high priced HOF QB and WR and don't make the playoffs, there are issues elsewhere. Last year without either they had the same end season result, so at least there were improvements, which occurred on defence. Ruin isn't always making the team a bottom 5 of the league, but it's wasting a talented core that went from should be SB contender to not even making the playoffs. After playing our game at home watching and hoping the browns win in order to get into the playoffs - something wrong with that . Ruin might be harsh, but it's considering the talent that was there, many said they were the most talented for a while. I liked the team this year, but too many injuries and the OC ruined the offence. The loss of Munchak was a serious loss but that's not on colbert or tomlin because Munchak wanted to go. The replacement however is, and what a drop in OL play we saw in one season. If they slide even more, they better replace the OL coach or get new players.
