  1. Jags are the NFL version of the longest yard movie ... Only this will be titled "The Longest Season" It will a season long tryout period for guys to see if any of them have the makings of a football player a the NFL level. They hope to just not get embarrassed by too much. Minshew may shine in his audition as they do have some talent in the passing game but if they have a **** @ Lawrence he's toast. RBs are auditioning to be backups for the FA the Jags sign next year but if you need an insurance policy for injury/bye week this year J. Rob might be worth a stab. Just don't fool yourse
  2. Oh nooo, it's C.Mike train returning to get in on the action
  3. Bill is a solid bet for the over on cheating scandals @ 2 1/2
  4. Brady narrative that he doesn't support a deep downfield oversized wr is because he rarely ever had one ... but he did alright with big bodied guys like Gronk and faired pretty well with Moss who left Rds with talk that he was on the downhill slope until hooking up with Tom Terrific
  5. Lost in most of this conversation is the fact he is still not @ 100% so the fact he isn't used as much in the passing or short yardage pkgs is expected. While it may continue it is also a possibility that especially his passing game role may increase. Short yardage likely won't due to the success of Venus & Serena with their thicker trunks plowing into the pile. Shady could be on the field more in the 2 min drill offense or comeback mode as his health & endurance increases. Borderline RB1/ RB 2 ROS
  6. You're way too young … The original was Csonka & Mercury Morris (plus Kiick) unless you want to go to college with Blanchard & Davis when college was bigger than the NFL
  7. Axe Elf wouldn't belittle himself to offer his insights for a mere $200
  8. Once again we have no clue what info the NFL has or how they will respond to the public potential outcry if they go lightly on Tyreek. That's the main reason I suspect he will get a significant suspension of a minimum 6 games. Way back in the day Paul Hornung & Alex Karras got full year suspensions without a legal guilty verdict. Recently the league did likewise to Zeke and a couple of others to protect their brand. Regardless of actual proof of guilt Hill will get a suspension for conduct unbecoming . The NFLPA gave "THE SHIELD" the power to do so. Ergo there's little recourse for Tyreek
  9. Terelle Pryor after signing with Washington add The Great Dayne from just about any of his early years
  10. I'd bet he's not a set it & forget it guy... which is what Tyreek was ! So yes , Mecole is a guy you'd want to have in case he has growth or a good matchup on your starters bye week or injuries. Be surprised if you started 3 or more times in a 12 team or less league. Only in a return yardage lg. is he a pretty sure starter
  11. I remember what a hard time Kyler had finding Hollywood Brown 😅
  12. Tyreek was a extremely physical guy with a RB vision & mentality. Had the strength to fight through jamming by big DB's and quicks to leave you in the dust if you whiffed. Could bully the smaller speed cover guys. Unfortunately used those traits off the field too . Hardman is a Santana Moss lite type. Great threat to take the top off and can be moved around on sweeps & bubble screens but not a go - to guy that can be dominant like Hill became with a full route tree. Beating teams on out routes and skinny posts / slants across the middle. Takes a rare talent combined with toughnes
  13. Rumors surfacing that the Colts are thinking about bringing in Swag Kelly … Probably be 3rd in camp behind Brissett to save on Luck's arm but it's a chance to show something. How long before he ends up on da' Raidahs ?
  14. Chad Kelly resurfaces to play NFL Football … (on a strangers couch in a game of Madden with a kid) 💥
  15. Hopefully it isn't Caitlyn (not really a Kardashian,I know)
  16. Agreed, Coach Pistachio is molding team in his image to show what a defensive genius he is. Protecting his precious image by dumbing down the offense worked at times but in today's games to beat the elite teams you have to be able to put points on the board. Look at thee teams that consistently win they have to have very good if not great play from their qb come playoffs. Pistachio probably thinks he was integral in the Patriots championships when actually his defenses got torched Bevell seems content to try and win games 17-14 or less but not holding out much hope that will be th
  17. Said that a long time ago that rb position isn't where the Chiefs are going to invest much capital with the production they've been getting from cheaper options. So there is a REAL GOOD chance the job is DW's to lose
  18. Goes back to Favre days but as a hometown Lions fan what kind of offensive should we expect from a D.B. / Patricia union ?
  19. Once again you grossly miss the point, Things change , not their age was the point. Fits had 2-3 bad years then got moved almost exclusively to a slot receiver under Arians with Palmer. It was like Larry found the fountain of youth No, his surroundings changed to his benefit. Like Larry when Stefanski took over (and under Zimmer's edict I'm guessing) they went in a different direction. Thielen got less targets on the outside and they were longer throws as he wasn't running majority of the slot routes. Cousins isn't a strong armed sidelines kinda guy. Likes the easier t
  20. Wasn't comparing totals, referring to style. Spreading out the formation is trusting Trubisky to read blitzes & coverage which he's still learning . Maybe he just never will. agree that Nagy is like the current wave of coaches trying too hard to be a genius and be confounding to the other team . Usually just end up out smarting themselves. Guess they want it to be more about them.
  21. My biggest concern is the development of Trubisky to manipulate the defense with his eyes. Stares down his receivers and it rarely seems to me that the games I watched he audibles into advantageous mismatches pre-snap. Of course that's just my opinion but I haven't heard much praise about his cerebral part of the game. Relies on his athletic ability to get him out of bad situations . Hit or miss results with that approach so far. Made some big plays but threw a lot of questionable balls killing drives. Giving him the benefit of the doubt because he hasn't gotten the game experience even in col
  22. Yea, ask Larry Fitz owners how that works out. Couple of years ago he had a couple of great seasons but what we need to do is project. Not give a history lesson and assume nothing ever changes. Not calling for as precipitous fall for the Vikings offense but also don't see Thielen being the focus of offense or the passing game as he has been the last two years. Do you think he will get 143 or 153 targets again next season ? I'd peg him in the 125 or so range, 85-90 catches , just over 1,000 yards, 7-8 TD's . Somewhere around 230-240 in full PPR . That would put you in the mid teens over the las
  23. Worse yet rumor has it Darrell Loggains is coming with him as O-coordinator
