  1. Around The League V.2

    Carr said on twitter that a lot of the check downs he made where by design. If this is true then it could be a reason why Coop was unhappy this past season, he knew he was going to be getting very many looks as is.

    To be fair discreet and Al don’t really go together.

    I’m sure this question wasn’t directed to me but i still would like to put in my two cents. Personally i think it’s a risk due to his size. D-line men the have 6-9 inches on him and 70-100 lbs are going to be a factor. I personally don’t like running QBs because the have a smaller shelf life because when they slow down they are going to be super ineffective.

    Honestly I’m tired of hearing about the Patriots and Brady leading into the Super Bowl. Like they’ve been to the super bowl 3 of the last 4 years! I’ll take KC because it’s finally a team that doesn’t have Brady or Manning on it. I mean it’s been what 6 years since the Ravens went to the Super Bowl? Obviously I’m going for a NFC team but i certainly don’t want the patriots in it at all.

    I don’t have the numbers but i believe that if Pittsburgh where to trade him away they’d have to pay 5m leaving only 15m for his new team to pay. I believe his salary from that point on would be 10-12m. Not bad for a top end WR. But i think the diva mindset is something teams are going to have to weigh. That’s the rub. At 31 he’s still elite and i personally think he’ll be elite for another 3-4 years or the length of his contract. He hasn’t had any crazy injuries so he won’t be slowed by that but his me first mentality might not be what this team needs.

    Does anyone think Hurst would have been worth the 10th pick? I know everyone has argued ad nuasem about how the raiders should have taken James over miller but i wanted to know what everyone’s thoughts are because many also wanted hurst early.

    He looked small behind his line. He’s going to be very small in the nfl.

    I saw a tweet the other day that said his contract would 15 million and less after the trade because the Steelers are supposed to cover 5 million next season no matter what.

    No. Guenther faltered early in the season, but he also thought he was going to have the best DE in the league. Things had to change fast. Also Williams defenses have a shelf life to them of about 2-3 seasons after that they seem to bottom out. It’s probably because of his rah rah mentality, that wears on people after awhile.

    Doesn’t he still have a year until he’s eligible? It’s a nice sentiment but it doesn’t mean much for the draft especially if he’s coming out next year. No one can project players that far out, except biff tannen.

    See here’s the weird thing about the Carr/Mack thing. lets say that the raiders extended Mack, if Carr had a bad season or if you didn’t believe in him then you cut Carr with no cap hit. You’d still have Carr and then you could do the SEA/PHI/LA things with a strong defense and a young QB. They bet on Carr so now they gotta roll with him.

    Enter Kubiak. If nothing else the Broncos are going to be like when they had Kubiak and Phillips. They’re going to run the ball and crush teams on defense. It doesn’t matter what palooka they got at QB. Kubiak is one of the better OCs in the league.

    Being a mobile QB is great short term because eventually your body will break down and you won’t be able to run as well. Then you’ll have to fall back on being a passer and if you’re bad and the passing portion of being a QB then you’re going to suck. I am not a long term believer in dak prescott, heck I’m not even a short term believer. The reason is that he isn’t accurate nor does he have a cannon. Heck Jason Garret right now is more accurate than dak. Now Baker is going to succeed because he’s accurate and smart. He can make plays with his feet but he’ll kill you through the air too. The Browns totally made the right choice there. Remember a QBs job is first and foremost to throw the ball if they can’t do it they are going to get wrecked.

    This. Projecting players this this far out is asinine. Sure they have potential but there’s tons of variables like talent, injuries, schemes. I still have some football mags that would project the next year’s top players almost every time they were wrong.
  15. Random Raider Stuff

    People need to stop bringing up Carr’s 40 time, sure he can run fast but he’s not a smooth runner at all. Wilson Watson Jackson...besides all having “son” at the end of their names, they are all smooth runners who can go from 0-100 like nothing. Even when Carr had that 50 yard run against the Texans it was designed and if there was anybody remotely close to him he wouldn’t have gone as far. Carr is a pocket passer and he should play as such. That being said he needs to watch tape of Brady in the pocket and work on his pocket movement.
