  1. PSU AD: Two month lead time for CFB season

    If I were Clay Helton, I would be saying the earliest my team will be ready is 9/6. I'm using every excuse in the book to try and avoid the beating Alabama is about to throw down.

    The jobless claims were still relatively worse than projections. Goldman was one of the highest projections and they were short by ~600,000.
  3. Official 2020 QB Thread

    If playing quarterback was solely physical, you might have an argument. The problem is that isn’t the case. There is more to being a top QB prospect than just the physical. Lawrence has struggled at times with the other parts of it. That’s not to say he’s anything but a great prospect, he’s just not worlds away from Tua and Burrow.
  4. Official 2020 QB Thread

    Has Josh Dobbs found a way to enter next years draft? On your actual point, Burrow and Tua are as good of prospects at the QB position as you will find. Opting not to draft him because maybe Trevor Lawrence grades out 1% better on your board next year is just madness.
  5. New Day for the colts.

    I would like to officially motion for all news posts to include an embedded tweet with the info. Clicking on links is so 2008.
  6. Panthers releasing QB Cam Newton

    Extend Thuney and Hightower and cut/trade Sanu and one of Burkhead/White and they could easily free up 20 million for Cam and still have enough for draft picks.
  7. Goldfish Improves Your Teams

    Would love to see one for the Lions. My dream is to trade back from 3 and potentially up from 35 to the early 20s to add a top tier CB and DT or EDGE but I’d be really curious what you could do.

    The fact legislators can openly own individual stocks is truly another level of incompetence.

    The problem isn’t the trades. The problem is the timing of the trades. They received classified information that the general public did not have access to in the hours or days before the trades. Acting on that information is wrong and I’m not really sure how to defend it. That classified briefing likely had quite a bit of information and intelligence that is not common knowledge related to the spread and extent of the virus and the ability of the US to cope with it.
  10. Rams release RB Todd Gurley (Page 7)

    Am I the only one who thinks that Gurley’s contract isn’t that bad for someone trading for him? It basically becomes a 2 year, 22 million deal for whoever gets him. It’s not some albatross.
  11. Lions sign OL Halapoulivaati Vaitai (5 year, $50 M)

    Obvious caveats about player preferences in location apply, but the Lions are paying Vaitai, Williams, and Collins $25 million APY. Cory Littleton and Conklin are getting $26 million APY. They signed 3 very meh players so far when they could have gone after some actual difference makers.
  12. Lions sign DL Nicholas Williams

    We care because it is a way of comparing results achieved by GMs. If the Lions give $25 million APY to Collins, Williams, and Vaitai, it is worth considering who they could have signed instead.
  13. Lions sign DL Nicholas Williams

    Neither Spotrac or OTC have any details on the deal besides what has been tweeted out. I’d argue it is more likely that info just isn’t out yet than that a player signed a deal on Day 1 of FA with zero guaranteed money.
  14. Lions sign OL Halapoulivaati Vaitai (5 year, $50 M)

    I also think it’s worth pointing out that if everyone thought he was a stud, someone would have traded for him over the last few years. Someone would give a 3rd in a heartbeat if they saw a top-10 RT based on his film after he played a ton in 2017 on a rookie deal. Or the Eagles would have made a move to figure out how to get him more snaps. I just don’t see a relatively smart franchise in the Eagles wasting a potential top RT as a swing tackle for 4 years without getting more value.
  15. Lions sign DL Nicholas Williams

    Where are you seeing that there is no guaranteed money? I haven’t seen anything specifically saying that. It seems like the total amount and years is the only thing that’s been reported so far. I would be surprised if he doesn’t have $3-4 million guaranteed.
