  1. From earlier today: Falcons waived RB Ito Smith. Smith is being cut loose with one year remaining on his rookie contract. Considering the barren state of the Falcons' backfield, getting waived at this stage of the offseason bodes poorly for Smith's NFL future. Headed into what will be his age-26 campaign, Smith has never shown more than replacement-level running skills. The same is true for his pass catching, where he has averaged a woeful 5.7 yards per grab. Smith will hope to get a shot on someone's 90-man roster to grind for No. 3 duties during training camp.
  2. If we're continuing on with round #3, I'll pick for the "Phins again if OK with everyone else..
  3. Ex-Jets C Ryan Kalil believes new Panthers QB Sam Darnold did not have enough freedom playing under ex-Jets coach Adam Gase. Kalil, who is now retired, was one of Darnold's centers in 2019. “It was a system that didn’t allow a lot of individual freedom. It was very, ‘You do it this way and that’s it,’” Kalil said. “A lot of the scheme was pre-determined (plays) based on what they thought they were seeing from the sideline. It didn’t give Sam a lot of room to grow, in my opinion, to make decisions on the fly. ... It wasn’t a system that allowed him to evolve and make decisions on his
  4. That's not enough IMO. Either you get a king's ransom for #6, or you stay put and pick. You're the first person to post what I've been thinking all along. However, what if Tua busts or gets hurt again and the 'Phins are back to having a right handed QB long term? Point being, I still think Sewell is a viable option at #6 (if Pitts and Chase are both already gone). But yeah, your point is valid.
  5. Man, that's just wrong GoHawks. Once you see it, you can't un-see it.
  6. Thanks for your patience guys. Typical Moanday morning so far. Ugh... And before I select for the Dolphins, I just want to say that looking back at my last pick (while I did admit at the time it was probably a bit early for a RB) I now KNOW it was. Etienne (or Harris) at #36 would make a LOT more sense. So, to those that were a little critical of it, I just want to say thank you for your feedback and your candor. Truth is I did wrestle with the pick before making it. But, I still believe in taking Etienne earlier than he's projected because I believe in the talent. Sometimes you have to r
  7. If I'm the G/M for the Dolphins, and this is the board that falls to me, my first choice is to try and trade out of the pick. But, based on having to pick at #18, MY pick is RB Travis Etienne. Best pass receiving back in the draft IMO, and he's a threat to house it every time he has the ball in his hands. He gives Tua a check down, which is going to work to both of their strengths IMO. I could see Etienne easily getting 50-60 targets as a rookie, assuming he wins the starter's job (not a high bar) and gets plenty of PT. Perhaps a little early for a RB to come off the board based on histor
  8. Y'all letting me pick for the 'Phins for pick #18? I assumed fachowski had dibs on both picks? Anyway, if it's on me then I will be back with my pick shortly.
  9. Bummed I missed out on staking a claim on my 'Phins, but I would've made the same pick with what was available. Great job fachowski!
  10. Bears head coach Matt Nagy said he will call offensive plays in 2021. Nagy, an Andy Reid protege, called Chicago's offensive plays in 2018, when he won Coach of the Year on his way to a 12-4 season. He gave up play-calling duties to offensive coordinator Bill Lazor last November with the team in an offensive quagmire. The Bears were 29th in scoring and offensive yardage when Nagy relinquished play calling to Lazor. They finished the season 26th in yardage and 22nd in scoring. Nagy will look to rediscover the formula that made him one of the NFL's premiere up-and-coming head coaches t
  11. Joe Burrow faced pressure on 32.3 percent of his drop backs in 2020, the 15th highest rate in the NFL. Burrow has reportedly lobbied the Bengals front office to take LSU wideout Ja'Marr Chase with the fifth pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, forgoing on a top offensive lineman who could bolster protection for Burrow. In his rookie campaign, Burrow didn't face nearly as much pressure as QBs like Russell Wilson, Daniel Jones, and Kirk Cousins. Pass volume meant Burrow absorbed the second most sacks (31) before his season ended in Week 10 with a brutal Week 10 ACL injury. Burrow wasn't par
  12. While I think Parsons is in the conversation, I think they are targeting a weapon for Tua at #6. Pitts, Chase, Smith and Waddle in that order for me. Sewell I don't think it making it to #6. But, if he does, he's gotta be a consideration IMO. They may not feel that way, but I sure as hell do. Keep in mind, they could still move back, or back up again because one thing is for sure. They're shown they will maneuver the draft to accumulate as many current and future picks as possible.
  13. Love this kid. Will definitely be targeting him. Just hoping a healthier Kittle and Deebo don't sap up too many targets.
  14. No, I wouldn't say depressed. Just a little disappointed (in the Tua pick). Herbert was my guy coming out, so it was more than a little frustrating to watch him go off in year one in LA. As for Tua, safe to say he had a more up 'n down rookie campaign. We'll see what he does in year #2. I know you're a believer because of where he went to school, but my fear is he was propped up there by the talent around him, and/or will never be what he once was due to that hip injury. Only time will tell, so we'll just have to wait and see. I think your spot on. The move back up from #12 to
  15. Welp, much as Philly is with Hurts, it appears my Dolphins are in fact all in on Tua. Will be interesting to see what pieces they add to build around him. WR & RB seems rather obvious. As would be shoring up the Oline. They certainly have the draft capital to make it happen. Let's see what they do and who they pick, but everything is in place for the FO to build a solid core of young players for 2021 and beyond. Fins Up?!
