  1. Rivers has like 12 kids, I don’t think there’s a problem there.
  2. Not digging it much. He’s been good but not second best to Aaron Donald good in his career. This is a lot of money/draft capital when we don’t have our QB. I reckon we could have gotten Chris Jones on his franchise tag for the same price for a better player.
  3. I do think Brady stays with New England but I think it happens after free agency starts. He wants to be courted a little bit but he knows it’s in his best interest to stay. If Tennessee plans to go in on him they won’t bother keeping Tannehill. I think they ultimately lose out on both and end up making a desperate move like signing Bridgewater or something.
  4. Of all the free agent QBs this offseason, I’m starting to lean towards him being the one that makes the most sense. If the Titans plan on going in on the Brady sweepstakes then they obviously wouldn’t keep Tannehill. He’s still young and had the highest QB rating in the league. With so many people hyping up Rivers as the bridge QB and willing to spend 20 million on him, I’m curious as to why he isn’t getting more attention and don’t feel he’d get much more than that. I assume part of it is that people think he’s a one year wonder and had one of the best rushing attacks on the year but ours was
  5. True, to be fair though, Elliott isn’t worth an Elliott. Paying RBs is an exercise in futility.
  6. That’s a surprisingly reasonable deal for possibly the best receiving back in the league. I would be okay with that for Mack but I think he’ll get more.
  7. I assume they mock Becton to the Giants because the Giants love bad oline play. PFF has not been favorable to him in their grades but they have him going fourth overall, very interesting.
  8. It would such a waste of money to sign a run stopper in this era of passing.
  9. One reason is, as you said, he’s too big. There aren’t very many guys who are that big who have panned out; only Ogden and McKinney come to mind. Then the frequency he gets beat while playing a very limited number of true pass blocking sets really scares me. Oline is notoriously hard to project from college to the pros with how college play so much run and shoot, uptempo offense. I think he’ll be overdrafted like Greg Robinson just based on measurables. Not that he’ll go second overall like Robinson, but wherever he goes it just has all the makings of a bust. Thomas is so much better
  10. I like Wirfs and think he's the second best tackle to Thomas, but minor nitpick, 4.85 isn't the record; Armstead had a stupidly fast 4.71 a few years ago. Wirfs combine has been impressive though. I think it's a very strong tackle class at the top; Thomas, Wirfs, Wills, and Jones, don't like Becton but people seem to be high on him, so I'm hoping there's a run of them and it helps us get our QB.
  11. Becton is going to be the biggest bust of the draft if he goes top 15
  12. Now now, let’s be honest, you wouldn’t have drafted CMC in the top ten either, and you would be extremely right to not do so. Although I would disagree if you put CMC over Barkley, but it’s very close. Barkley is the better runner and the reason he doesn’t have the same receiving impact is only because the Giants didn’t live and die entirely by their RB coming out of the backfield. I’m pretty sure CMC was their first, second, and third read on every pass in their game against us.
  13. Stitches is 100% right. Mack is a good back but backs are so replaceable now that it’s a joke to overpay for one. ‘Taking care of your own’ doesn’t mean ‘spending frivolously at the expense of your team’. When guys like Raheem Mostert, Aaron Jones, and Phillip Lindsay can come in and be bell cows on rookie deals, it practically makes the position obsolete. Wilkins and Williams each would have had the same production as Mack and it’s not like Mack has lit it up in the passing game anyway, the one area that makes all the difference in RB play.
  14. It didn’t end like we hoped but it was still entertaining. We were still playing for the division with three weeks left and beat the Super Bowl champs in their own house. Considering our franchise quarterback retired two weeks before the season I’d hardly consider that a horrible season.
  15. Well we’ve definitely got some incredibly smart and trustworthy football guys at the helm right now, plus an owner who lives, eats, and breathes Colts. Whoever they decide is the guy, I don’t think they’ll struggle to give him a convincing pitch to rock the ‘shoe. I don’t particularly want to get into the whole back and forth among us fans over who is and isn’t he right guy to lead this team in the next era, but I am not sold on a single one. I know there’s an answer out there but I really would not be disappointed if we go this offseason without drafting one of the early ones. My be
  16. Conklin’s really only had two decent years, both bookending his time in Nashville. He’s going to be an example of a guy getting paid way too much after a contract year breakout. I’m assuming he sets the new bar on RTs salary this offseason, not getting paid as much as Solder did a couple years ago, but at least matching him as a free agency bust. Plus he’s only played RT in his NFL career so I certainly wouldn’t look at him as Castonzo’s replacement.
  17. Player A Yards per pass attempt: 8.4 Completion percentage: 69.1 QB rating: 102.0 Average time to throw: 2.65 seconds Player B Yards per pass attempt: 6.6 Completion percentage: 60.8 QB rating: 88.0 Average time to throw: 2.93 seconds OP They’re the same player
  18. That’s essentially what I’m saying. Alignment is less important than assignment. Wade has always had a one gap 3-4. I don’t think we’d need as much overhaul on the front seven as you’re thinking but the back end might need a little with Wade’s man coverage tendencies. I would prefer him over Eberflus but the chances of it happening are non existent.
  19. Not that there’s even a chance of it happening, but the 4-3/3-4 debate is so dated in this era. Aaron Donald was scientifically engineered in a lab to play UT in a 4-3 and he’s playing in Wade’s 3-4. Base defensive alignment doesn’t matter, and it matters even less since you’re playing nickel at least 60% of the time. What you ask your linemen to do matters far more, and Wade has always had an attacking line, rather than read and react. Same philosophy as Eberflus.
  20. Big league thread @EastStreet. QB is obviously the biggest need on this team and I would prefer going the young and malleable route in the draft. I’m all for betting the farm and moving up for the guy but we’ll see how it plays out. Interior Dline is the next weakest spot but I see a number of guys approaching free agency that I would love to target and I’m sure a couple have to be available in March. These are the two most important positions on the team and fixing them is easier said than done, but it is something that they’ve got to get to work on this offseason or we’re going to squander t
  21. Always with the either/or proposition for fans. It is possible to have a dominant defense and a highly paid/elite QB.
  22. Long post warning This dude is a certifiable stud and his career will be utterly wasted in Cincinnati. I would go all in on trading up for the first overall pick to land this guy. Our team almost made the playoffs with a bottom tier QB and an old kicker that lost a couple games on his own. Frank Reich is a damn good coach and carried this team admirably with what he had. Ballard has made a lot of great moves and while I don’t always agree with his moves, his vision and philosophy is exactly what you want from your GM. This team has the roster and leadership in place to really buil
  23. Y’all just jealous. My man made about a million dollars for every route he ran. I’d kill for that job. I definitely feel for him though, not monetarily, but because he definitely came here to win and play with Luck and neither of those things played out.
