  1. No, two totally different things. Tanking has nothing to do with having class. It is a method of rebuilding the team. Just because it does not reach the highest ideals of the sport it can not be compared to fining a player who wants to have surgery. Now I can understand fining a player for having surgery during the season, when the team advised him to get the surgery during the off season, and the player made the decision to try to let it heal on its own. This coming from a team, whose team doctor led the nfl coverup on concussions, I would think the jets were to be more aware of the public reaction on this issue.
  2. NE signs DB / ST ace Justin Bethel

    But if you trade him you lose the 4th rd comp pick. Nobody was going to give a 4th for him.
  3. NE signs DB / ST ace Justin Bethel

    he is a 4 year vet and not subject to waiver wire. How much more is a team going to give him for the last 8 games than the pats are. He is already getting his salary from the Ravens already correct? He was on the opening day roster so his salary is guaranteed. If I was going to sign somewhere, I would go with the team with a great shot at the SB
  4. Is the NFL rigged?

    and that is a reason to let the game to be the way it is, because BB is smart, he is smart now, and he will be smart no matter how they change rules. Besides an inadvertent whistle there is nothing that should not be able to be challenged and it should not affect your time outs. If it was patently obvious that you are challenging a call just to try to get an extra time out, the refs could then dock you a time out.
  5. Browns trade C Austin Corbett to Rams for 2021 Day 3 pick

    you don't understand why I only picked on name out of three? why would it even matter what name I picked? the scenario I painted was valid. If you don't sign a Free agent and he walks the deal is a good deal for the Ravens. If he returns to play like he did for the for KC his first three years, you get a real good to great deal. If he plays like the last two years and you sign him for 10 mill you get a bad deal. I like peters, he is skilled, but he is just too grabby and with the way they call PI now, he is just not as effective.
  6. Browns trade C Austin Corbett to Rams for 2021 Day 3 pick

    you will be getting 2 good comp picks but you would have gotten a 3rd but you signed thomas, would it have made you feel any better if I said you were not getting a pick for brown or smith instead of mosley.
  7. Is the NFL rigged?

    just do what bb wanted, every coach has three challenges per game, all plays/calls can be challenged.
  8. Browns trade C Austin Corbett to Rams for 2021 Day 3 pick

    Well, as you know the comp pick is contingent, as you wont get a pick for mosely as you signed thomas. but yeah, it could work out great.
  9. Browns trade C Austin Corbett to Rams for 2021 Day 3 pick

    I thought the kid the Ravens traded was going to be a good fit for them. Speccialy with Mosley moving on
  10. Browns trade C Austin Corbett to Rams for 2021 Day 3 pick

    you have peters for 10 games, they have corbett for 42 games.
  11. Jalen Ramsey traded to the Rams

    I don't think there a re a sho in to make the playoffs. They are #15 now and in 3rd place in thier division. I see him as an upgrade to peters, but they just lost Talib for the year.
  12. Jalen Ramsey traded to the Rams

    That is a lot of draft capital. They better hit on thier late rd picks. Next year they have 100mill in just 4 guys. Before paying him, even with the first year low, I cant see how they keep a team together. .
  13. Trent Williams to report to Redskins?

    he played the position very well when He looked real solid out there before he got hurt He stoned the steelers and Dolphind
  14. Trent Williams to report to Redskins?

    And Wynn is coming back after 3 more weeks.. It was only turf toe. They only put him on IR so they could save a roster spot. And if you look at the sacks most of them are him going down before the hit.
  15. Trent Williams to report to Redskins?

    Why are the pats desperate? Wynn is able to return to the roster by week 11 which is the week after thier bye. They have games against the skins, jets, giants without Barkley and the ravens along with the browns, I think the pats will be favored by at least ten points in the first three and will be a small favorite in the Ravens and Browns games.
  16. I don't know what cap space has to do with signing a kicker that is out of a job. What do you think Mike Nugent would expect 1 mill pro rated so it is 750,000.
  17. Jalen Ramsey requests trade from Jaguars

    Not to single you out, but this 1st and a 3rd could be an overpay or could be considered by others robbery of the Jags. Is the first a top 10 or the pats pick? Kind of a wide range there don't you think? he bears are having all sorts of trouble offensively. They might not make the playoffs, a Mid 1st say pick 16-18. has a lot more value that what will likely be a very late 1st from the Ravens. say pick 26-28. I would think to move up 10 spots would be a 2nd.
  18. It’s times for Danny Dimes!

    Lets see if this Giants FO can do better putting a team around him than they did for Eli. I don't expect much from him this year as his weapons are sub par.
  19. This hurts in the Mahones will get hit more often and that takes it toll as the year goes on.
  20. Taking helmets off penalty

    This rule should be scrapped and players encouraged to take the helmets off after big plays. I think marketing the game will be well served. Plus delay of game penalties while players struggle to get thier helmets on would be fun to watch after a sack .
  21. turf toe is a major injury? He is only going on IR because they need the roster spot. With two olinman down, you can keep somebody on the roster for 4 weeks and not have him play.
  22. it will be 6 numbers and one of them will be a different color, and all the numbers will be between 1 and 69 and the powerball number will be 1-26. again, when you make the trade you make it with taking in consideration the wide range of where the pick will be. Having just a 20% possibility of being pick 5 to most fans here skewers the trade in favor of the fins. Like said in an earlier post, I may have made the Trade saturday, but I would not have made in Monday.
  23. Jalen Ramsey requests trade from Jaguars

    Why do you figure a late first as worth a 2nd? Hell if that was the case BB would never pick in the 2nd he would just trade it for a 1st the next year. I see the jump in a 3rd for a 2nd but even then it seems like it is not the pats trading pick 96 to the bucs for pick 36 the next year. I just think the jags would want to see Balt pick the year when they have to go against a manned Pitt squad and give Cleveland more time to mature and maybe in 2020 the Ravens don't have as good of a shot for the playoffs as they do this year with Ben out and Mayfield still growing
  24. Taking helmets off penalty

    yes it was, guys like Mark Gastinieu, Steve Michaels, Andre Tippett, would all do it for sacks. Deion Sanders, The fun bunch, The redskins smurfs, In the 80s and early 90s it was common.
  25. Taking helmets off penalty

    At one time players did it all the time. When the league decided to try to take some flamboyance out of the league as part of the "no fun league" campaign this rule was added. The marketing of players have been hurt due to the public not even knowing what some all pros look like. IMO The league made this change with an eye to minimizing players and maximizing laundry. I think the league should take a page out of the NBA and BB and market players more.
