  1. Speaking from experience here: Everything past 34 is a blur, it all feels the same in your knees, ankles, shoulders...
  2. Is Mike Thomas A 'Tier 1' Wide Receiver?

    Huh? You mean his rookie season where he was a #2 behind Andre Johnson? That's the only time Hopkins worked with Matt Schaub. Andre posted a 109/1,407/5 stat line during the 2013 season, so yes - Hopkins was the #2 that year.
  3. Well, that's random. Guess the Seahawks need an athletic backup to Wilson.
  4. Ironically, the same guy who gave Rice a go at 35. So...if he trades for AB, then we can think about it before saying "probably not".
  5. Morey-ball

    I think we'd see something similar (not necessarily the SAME) if teams collectively went for it on 4th and short (< 3 yards) vs punting it. I'd like to see the analytics on extending a drive vs flipping the field on a punt.
  6. 2019 FA TALK!!!

    It's the "buy low" aspect for me. In this scenario, we're paying big bucks to both Jadevion Clowney and JJ Watt, so low pricetag/high upside trumps actual production. I'm not advocating a bidding war for his services, just thinking cost effectiveness in a spot where you'll have to think about having two defensive player getting as much as Watt/Clowney.

    Not really, but welcome to the 4,500+ club!
  8. 2019 FA TALK!!!

    NFL.com lists Panthers OT Daryl Williams as the top T on the market. Missed last season with a knee injury, but was 2nd team All Pro two years ago. I know nothing about him and don't trust guys coming off of injury, but wouldn't say no.
  9. NFL General Random Thoughts Thread

    Yeah. Yeah, that sounds better. Derek Anderson. Hue's gotta be the Nate Pinterman of HCs, right?
  10. NFL General Random Thoughts Thread

    He can at least win a playoff game against a QB who isn't Connor Cook. I'd say he's the Matt Stafford of HCs.
  11. NFL General Random Thoughts Thread

    Bill O'Brien is the Blake Bortles of head coaches. Amiright?
  12. At his current rate, DeAndre Hopkins is also in the discussion... ...this being said, the record is less about the ability of each guy and more about longevity. Jerry Rice was putting up 1,000+ yard seasons at 40. In todays' NFL, even productive WRs are put out to pasture at 35. Guys like Rice, Fitzgerald are exceptions, not the rule of law. Nobody is catching up to Rice because nobody is going to look at keeping a 35+ WR to be a #1. Everyone gets replaced, nobody is going to put in the seasons to catch these numbers.
  13. Is Mike Thomas A 'Tier 1' Wide Receiver?

    100% yes. He's not the fastest guy, but he's incredibly strong when going for the ball, has some great hands and is physical all through the play. He reminds me of a stronger Reggie Wayne.
  14. Last few pages...hmm.
  15. Jaguars hire John DeFilippo as OC

    ...Bill O'Brien is still our HC and OC, so the happiness dies very quickly.
  16. 1. Aaron Colvin (top 10 salary). A FA signing last off-season, he's been hurt most of the time. When he was heathly, he wasn't special, couldn't play boundary CB and really didn't look special at slot CB. 2. Zach Fulton (top 10 salary). Another FA from last off-season, Fulton was better that Senio Kelemete, but he was still pretty bad in his own right. He's also injury prone as well. As far as the rest... 1. Kevin Johnson (concussion risk, generally bad CB). 2. Demaryius Thomas (significant injury at 32, losing him would save $4.5mm towards the cap). 3. Ryan Griffin (Slight cap savings, and the Jordans' are better). 4. Senio Kelemete (Injured all the time and simply not good. New G will be needed on both sides). 5. Buddy Howell (roster fodder) 6. Brandon Weeden (simply to upgrade the backup QB spot).
  17. Survivor III: Winners Versus Losers

    Oh. Hmm. Well, I withdraw my inquiry. I wish you well.
  18. Survivor III: Winners Versus Losers

    What about everyone else?
  19. Survivor III: Winners Versus Losers

    Which games did they post? I actually had a different game idea: Identity Theft: - Step one: Give me your Credit Cards, Debit Cards (along with PIN, zip code and three digits on back of card) SSNs, Mother's Maiden names, Checking account and routing numbers. The more the better! - I pick a person at random, and they win a prize!
  20. Survivor III: Winners Versus Losers

    So...does this mean I win!?
  21. Wish I could say the same about you, but your football and non-football takes are a dumpster fire...
  22. Ohhhhh...yup, that's a big one. Kubiak brought in Kyle Shanahan as a favor to his old boss Mike (he was a wunderkind so it wasn't ALL bad) but insisted on Rick Dennison as OC afterwards. The defense was so bad under Kubiak cronies Richard Smith and Frank Bush - so bad that Bob McNair forced Wade Phillips onto Kubiak to break up the monotony (which worked out, actually). It was also evident on the roster - guys like David Anderson, Shelley Smith, Joel Dreessen, Garrett Graham? Colorado State Alums... and friends with former CSU FS/QB coach Klint Kubiak (I think DA was Klint's roommate in college). It was a major issue here during Kubiak's tenure.
