  1. The QB Thread: Everything Carr, Mariota and beyond

    "Cut him for Jamis, Fitztrash, Taylor or Foles", "The losses are all Carr's fault" and "trade him for a 2nd" are some of my favorites I'll remember for years LOL
  2. Around The League V.2

    I agree and he knows his career depends on this year. His success is contingent on his health (arm strength and mobility) and if those things are not affected he will have a very good year despite his terrible weapons. The Pats are serious playoff contenders with Cam at the helm and in reality he doesn't have to do too much to take them there, just like Brady last year. Don't turn the ball over and rely on the D to keep it close and they will win 10 games easily.
  3. Around The League V.2

    Anyone who thinks this needs to have their head examined. No one who understands football and talent can really believe that Mariota is better then Cam... 90 percent Cam is better than 100 percent Mariota and his noodle arm. Cam had a bozooka and was pretty efficient, granted his mobility allowed him to appear to be a better passer than if he was regulated to the pocket.
  4. Around The League V.2

    Cam is only 31 and yes his mobility has been a major part in his game but I find it hard to believe that he can't return to 90 percent of what he was. Granted I don't know the extent of his injuries but to say that Newton is not much better than Stidham is borderline insane unless you have some info regarding his injuries that the rest of us are not provided with. The Pats are a playoff team with a Cam who is 90 percent of what he was. I think you'r grossly underestimating the greatness of BB.
  5. Around The League V.2

    Exactly, I wouldn't want them to land TL but even with Sidtham they are still a 5 win team considering they have a top tier D. If Cam is 90 percent of what he was before that will be scary and they should be a playoff team. On a 1 year deal you know BB will likely run him into the ground.
  6. Around The League V.2

    Newton is only 31 and his body should be fresh if the injuries he has are not long term. I figure either way it's a win/win for both Cam and the Pats. If Cam is healthy and balls out he will ink a long term deal with either the Pats or a Qb needy team for more money. If he is still injured and falters in NE his career will be over. Bills fans thought they were the frontrunners in the division but now you have to give it back to the Pats.

    They just became legit playoff contenders again. Good move if he is healthy!
  8. Recapping the first Las Vegas Raiders Draft

    I am fascinated to see how BB and Brady do this season. As I think BB is a football genius and Brady is one of the greatest of all time. They were great together but I have always said if Brady was drafted by the Browns, he would not be the player that we know. BB on the other hand would have had success without Brady. I don't know about the 6 SB's but his system can make bums like Matt Cassel look like good players. I am truly fascinated to see how the Pats do this year. Brady didn't do much last season and the Pats were a playoff team so Stidham does have a chance to be successful. Let's say that Stidham starts out the season poorly and the Pats look terrible. I could see BB rolling with him all season in an attempt to land the 1st pick and draft TL. That would be a bold move but BB having TL as his QB for the next 15 years would certainly be worth 1 terrible season. Just some food for thought and we all know that BB has a massive ego so who knows if he can handle 1 horrible year.
  9. Recapping the first Las Vegas Raiders Draft

    Exactly, just look at the Pats. When they "reach" on players and yes they do, the talking head TV stooges never really question the pick too much like they have done in the past with teams like us. The Pats have earned that respect and their drafting philosophy is obviously superior to the talking head TV stooges, hence the 6 rings. They haven't really drafted many studs early in drafts over the last few years but whatever they have been doing works. Unfortunately we have not yet earned that respect but I have noticed it has gotten better since we landed Mayock. The Arnette pick has been bashed pretty hard but the the best way to shut the stooges up.... Go out there and ball, which I hope Arnette can do!

    I disagree with this assessment. Sherman is old and I would only sign a CB who is in their prime (25-27) to a large deal like that. Sherman has extended his career and has looked good because the 9ers have had a top tier pass rush which has masked his loss of speed.
  11. 2021 NFL Draft Thread

    Exactly right. He is one of the best in the NFL but no safety is worth DE money. It's not an impact position.
  12. 2021 NFL Draft Thread

    While I agree with this statement we currently don't know if we have anything more than 1 "good" CB. My point was if Arnette turns out to be average or Mullin regresses or both, would going after a proven CB who is still in their prime be worth allocating 15 plus million too?
  13. 2021 NFL Draft Thread

    Either Clark or Chris Jones would be a solid addition but both will cost around 15mil to land. I assume we will let Prince A. walk after this season and most likely release Joyner. Do you think we make a play for a CB like Adoree Jackson, Marlon Humphrey or Awuzie if they hit the FA market or is it too early to tell? I know we have invested a lot of draft capital in the CB position over the last 2 years (Mullin, Arnette, Robinson, Johnson) but clearly none of those players have proven to be true lockdown #1's. Having a lockdown CB is critical and CB depth is critical over the course of a season.
  14. 2021 NFL Draft Thread

    You pretty much nailed it. Hard pass on Adams at 17 per and giving up draft capital for a player at a non impact position. Is Adams a stud, yes there is no denying that but he is not a player who puts us over the edge. Having a great safety is a luxury but not a necessity and that 17 million will go a long way in next years FA class. This team needs to add depth and stud at a more impactful position (3T) which will cost much less than the 17 for Adams. This was my stance on the Mack trade from day 1. Mack is a stud but we were so far off from contention that paying him all of that cash would be foolish considering he would be on the downside of his career by they time we would be in contention
  15. Around The League V.2

    Haha keep telling yourself that but that is far from the truth. Jacobs isn't a bum, Waller isn't a bum, Hudson isn't a bum, Incognito isn't a bum. I really like the additions of Littleton and Kwik and I think getting Abrams back will bolster this D. On paper this is the best team we have fielded in the last 10 years and I believe with Mayock at the helm the future will only be brighter. If you think the talent we have had on our teams over the last 10 years have been anything less than a joke I don't know what to tell you other than to learn how to evaluate football talent. Hence the article I posted stating that our D has been the worst in the NFL over the last 10 years LOL Absolute trash just like I have said all along.
