  1. Which is why we draft BPA to improve that, and spend a few dollars in FA. They're really young, a lot of prospective talent, there were a ton of injuries.
  2. Give me an NFL quarterback that hasn't left a game or missed one with an injury. Not gonna be a long list, if you can even produce one.
  3. I'm actually a huge fan of getting either Carr or Stafford, both are proven playmakers. This team is built to win now, with Andrew we would have been a SB contender. I say get one of those guys at QB and draft BPA to build around them.
  4. Never missed a game, yet he's injury prone lol. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.montgomeryadvertiser.com/amp/4064454002
  5. When? Tua hadn't missed a collegiate game til this year. Yeah, him staying definitely isn't the prudent move but it seems likely. That's more reason imo to forego QB this year and trade back in an effort to get as much draft capital as possible to make our run next year at Lawrence, Fields, or Tua.
  6. I like the idea of Stafford or Carr a lot actually. It allows us to spend all of our picks (3 in the top 45) on BPA players to fill need, and also spend some draft cap on a few difference makers and hopefully make a run these next 4-5 years.
  7. Well, I know he's like 195 right now, but he's 6'1 with a solid frame so I'd assume he will play closer to 205 in the NFL. That's something that can be taught, all of his other intangibles (the ones that make him elite) can't be taught. He's the most athletically gifted WR since Amari imo, and a ton of others. McShay says he's the best WR he's ever scouted, same with Daniel Jeremiah. Dude is gonna be a HOFer.
  8. Them everybody in football is injury prone. He has played every game of his life until this season, it's football people get hurt. Why does everyone keep saying that, I swear you guys just hear stuff then just keep regurgitating it with no actual research. C'mon.
  9. That's pretty accurate imo. I wouldn't even attempt to go up and get Joe Burrow, price is just too astronomical and Ballard will never spend that kind of cap. Tua I'd be willing to give up the latter 2nd and a future 1st, I'm certain he's one of the best to come out in the last few years. Herbert I wouldn't trade up for, but if he made it to 13 then so be it. I'm not sold on him. With Love, I'd wanna make the pick at 13 (BPA) and trade back in to grab him, essentially soending both 2nds.
  10. Alright, let's get technical then. We would actually have to trade with the Giants at 4 because both the Fins and Chargers are likely to take QB's. I'd be willing to pay that cost for Tua, but not Herbert.
  11. I wouldn't take Fromm at 234. He's basically Jacoby Brissett, but I honestly think Jacoby is better. Game managers. He's had incredible talent around him at Georgia and still hasn't been able to put up impressive numbers, the best thing about him is that he just doesn't turn the ball over...sound familiar?
  12. Top 5? Nah. Burrow and Tua will likely go in the top 5, but most mocks have Herbert going between 6-11, which is definitely within striking distance.
  13. No, that's not really how it works. A RT is a RT regardless of the quarterbacks preference. They've generally been playing that position most of their lives, and while the switch from one position on the line to another isn't like a WR going to RB, it's still difficult. If they do land Tua, maybe they can sign Conklin in FA and draft some guys (WRs) from a loaded pool in 2020. I'm all in on Tua, kid is the best QB in this class and it isn't particularly close for me. I just hope that he slides far enough for us to have a chance.
  14. Where did you hear that? Just curious, cuz I've read tons of info and don't recall seeing anything about that.
  15. The opinion is that he's one of, if not the best RB in the class, and that's saying quite a bit because this class of RB's is talented and deep. Personally, I think he's the best pure runner in the class, reminds me a lot of Lev Bell at Michigan State. He has that patience for things to develop and seems to find holes that shouldn't be there. JT is faster than Lev but Lev is a better pass catcher, even tho JT23 has shown major improvement this year in that area. I'd put Jonathan Taylor, D'Andre Swift, and Travis Etienne in their own tier, the really elite guys.
  16. Jerry Jeudy is a monster of a player, I wouldn't be upset one bit if he made it us at 13. There's really no chance, but a man can dream.
  17. Dude, it's all about variance and having the right players and game stacked. It's tough, but you don't have to win to make money, generally in larger formats you win money thru the 4000's or so (out of 100-150 thousand). Like, say the Texans played the Chiefs (use an easy one for the example), you'd wanna stack players from both teams in this game (called a game stack) because of the strong likelihood that it's gonna be a shootout, which in turn produces tons of fantasy points. So, you'd stack Mahomes with Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, while also having Will Fuller and DHop in as
  18. If 87 TD's to 11 INT's for 7,400 yards with a 190+ QB Rating is bad, I'd hate to see what good is. In the SEC, no less. QB's take hits, they get injured because they take the most violent hits (blindside). He hadn't missed a game up until this season, and was actually even playing thru that (ankle) injury, which is ultimately what likely caused the hip injury. He's gonna be better than Burrow, and probably anyone that came out in 2019. I believe that so much, I'd wager a decent amount of money on it. This is what I do man, I study this crap like it's my job, because in
  19. Because he got injured once? By those standards, essentially everyone in the league is glass. He hadn't missed a single game due to injury prior to this year.
  20. This. It would be much cheaper to grab Tua, if it would even require moving at all. I feel like he's gonna be the better pro after it's all said and done anyways. Would actually be willing to bet money on that.
  21. Name's that stand out to me are Austin Hooper, he would be a significant upgrade to Eric Ebron imo. Jack Conklin, even if Castonzo decides not to retire. Can never have too much quality oline depth and the kid is good. Any of the edge defenders that may hit FA, tho that's the least likely position, probably along with QB. Robby Anderson would be a great field stretcher opposite TY Hilton. It would be really hard for teams to defend TY and Robby mid-to-deep while Campbell, Doyle, and Hooper wreaked havoc underneath.
  22. It's football man, how many QB's don't miss time due to injury? Very few. Tua actually hadn't missed a game due to injury up to this year, he had the ankle injury around the Tennessee game and really the hip was probably due to limited mobility from the ankle injury, he wouldn't have been playing if the stakes weren't so high. People need to realize that with the type of injury Tua sustained (the hip injury) as long as corrective measures were taken within 6 hours -and they were- the chances of them effecting him going forward are around 5% (according to specialists). I hope teams
  23. How are people not sold on Tua? Lol what? Go study that film or do a Google search for anyone that does study film (for a living) and you see nothing but high praise. There was a reason that he's been the consensus #1 pick in this year's draft for the last 18 months. The only thing keeping him from being neck and neck with Joe Burrow for the #1 overall pick is his injury. That alone should tell you how dynamic a player he is, Joe Burrow is playing out of his mind right now, and has for the entire season basically, but Tua has been doing this for years. It's not like he has done it in the Pac-1
  24. Lose fans? Not real ones. Anybody with half a brain would understand the obvious payoff, I would happily take 1 single year on the chin for another generational quarterback. That would mean 15 more years of playoffs and SB contention...and the cost is one really bad year? C'mon.
