884 Pro Bowl
  1. Cowboys sign K Greg Zuerlein

    Remember who the best rookie kicker that year was? None other than Blair Walsh. Legatron, Blair Walsh, and Justin Tucker entered the league the same year, and it looked like we were going to see the best kicking class of all-time, with Walsh headlining.
  2. DT Austin Johnson signs with Giants

    Apparently, he went to a rival high school the same time I was in high school. I guarantee you I know some guys who know him. Small world.
  3. Wow, that sucks for the Ravens. They let Pierce walk and traded Wormley partly because they were getting Brockers. What's their plan for DT now?
  4. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Honestly, same for grocery store employees, fast food workers, gas station attendants, construction workers, and others I'm sure I'm missing.
  5. Notable Stats and Observations

    Mike Shula gets a lot of guff, but I always thought he did a very good job designing an offense tailored around the strengths of Cam and whoever he had to work with.
  6. Everything Free Agency (Rumors, notes and news)

    PFF has gone full Nate Silver recently. They have become much more subjective overall, which not only undermines their whole reason for existing, but the personalities they have are awful. Skippy is right about one thing- their WAR rankings are garbage because their WAR stat is garbage. No one has been able to get an NFLWAR right yet, and it is probably because it is near impossible. There are way, way too many factors that contribute to the effectiveness of any one play, and nobody doing these breakdowns knows every player's individual responsibility on every play or has enough time to breakdown every game if they did know. I started a thread a while ago about an NFLWAR stat. Conversation here wasn't very sizable, but I did a bunch of research before making it and no one has figured this out yet.
  7. How Much Would You Pay Saquon?

    I'd pay whatever we need to to keep him, which probably means making him the highest paid RB in the league. I'm totally fine with that. However, one big caveat- I would not do it before he has played out his entire rookie contract and, ideally, the franchise tag for a year. If he refuses to play under the tag, then you have to sign him then, but I'd see if I could get him for the tag for a year. We've seen RBs flame out in year 5 recently. Have to make sure that doesn't happen with Saquon before giving him money.
  8. XFL-to-NFL FA News (Tracker included)

    Giants signed that corner from the Guardians who threw a flag back at the ref.
  9. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    ...I did not even consider that. My gym is closed, obviously, so I've been setting up my barbell in the backyard. If my shoulder gets messed up again, I'd be SOL. Don't want to overcrowd a hospital for a slap tear and risk coming into contact with the virus. Maybe I'll go lighter on the weights for the time being.
  10. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    I heard that term for the first time a few weeks ago. My fiancee works in OT for extremely young kids- between 6 months and 2 years. She, and all the other OTs, are trying to figure out how best to do this, whether it be instruct on how to do exercises over some sort of video chat or just consultations over the phone. Good news is these families already don't pay for anything out of pocket. Bad news is these kids need this help, and they can't get it in person for the time being.
  11. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Mine is going right to my wedding venue. Helps even out the fact that my job has delayed merit bonuses, even though we are still working as usual. Hell, I've been working overtime the past few weeks. Meanwhile, my fiancee got temporarily laid off while they try to figure out how to proceed with telehealth, so she needs the check she will be getting. I have a lot of comments on this bill I won't express here, but it is better than nothing and seems that at least the UI changes will help some people who absolutely need it.
  12. 2020 NFL Offseason

    Also, he's finally buying into the rebuild. No long term deals, all money upfront, no big time money signings, and building through the draft (minus the Leonard Williams trade, which he has botched. Him playing on the tag this year would be the worst result of that trade by far. He either needs to be let go or signed long term). We aren't going to be good this year, but we need to be competitive and show improvement. Then, the following year is make or break- DJ's 2nd full year starting, #4 pick with a year under his belt, Saquon in his 4th year.
  13. Panthers releasing QB Cam Newton

    Would reunite him with Mike Shula.
  14. Dion Lewis signs with the gmen

    We grabbed Buck Allen midseason and he was solid. Everyone else was bad, especially rookie Jon Hilliman. #2 RB was a big need for us. Hopefully Lewis can still play.
  15. Seattle trades for db Dunbar

    Dunbar and Frederick out of the division in the same day. Happy day!
