  1. QB 2 in 2020?

    I meant this as "that" and "fat" combined. Doesn't have the genes for either.

    I hope the judge lets me decide which one of you I get to live with when this is all over.

    You can try and bend it any number of ways, but that cap number for that position will just not fit into how Berry is going to construct this roster. In my mock offseason, I signed Brian Bulaga to a $11M aav contract. I think that might even be more than they're willing to spend, but in my mind I justified it as a 1-2 year bridge to a rookie taking over. Committing many millions of guaranteed dollars to RT on a multi year free agent deal is just not how I see this team operating.

    There were some good decisions, no doubt. The problem was that those decisions were not frequent enough given the opportunities, and that the bad decisions really held the team back. Being overtly dismissive of the work of other people in the building didn't help matters.
  5. QB 2 in 2020?

    The same Case Keenum who signed a $4M deal last year and was given the opportunity to start? He did not do much to show he was worth more than that or deserved a shot at starting. I would bet Dalton gets $12M and a starting job. Keenum ain't ever getting fhat.
  6. Trade Chubb?

    Please don't use the word "analytics" to blame this bad idea on. Analytics, as the nerds explained in the plainest of language, is merely using data to help make a decision. Fortunately, common sense is so overwhelmingly in favor of keeping him around, no data is needed to come to that conclusion. He makes the offense go. You pay him what he's worth and figure the rest out later.

    Y'all got to be outcho minds talmbout spending $17M on a Right Tackle.

    And yet there are people who still don't understand why Dorsey was fired.

    Depends where he gets drafted.

    We ain't getting Clowney.

    Sacks are not the only way to measure a player's worth. Also, TJ Carrie got $8M on the open market. Oliver Vernon would get at least $12M, no doubt about it.
  12. QB 2 in 2020?

    Reminds me of an anecdote I heard about Tom Moore, former Indianapolis Offensive Coordinator when Manning was there. Someone asked him why the backup never gets reps in practice. He said, "If 18 goes down, we're ****ed. And we don't practice ****ed". Given that, I choose Keenum for all the things he can do for Baker off the field.
  13. You know who wasn't open or honest about the incident from the start, or ever? Everyone associated with the Steelers. Especially Mike Tomlin. Still can't believe nobody has asked him why his QB was dropping back to pass on 3rd and forever, down two scores, with 15 seconds left. Accountability starts at the top, Mike.

    Not happening. He would get 12-14M annually in this market, so there's no reason to take a pay cut for him. He is on a 1 year deal. There is no scenario where he can be replaced by a comparable player on a 1 year deal. Everybody counting on him getting cut should prepare themselves for disappointment.
