  1. We had already signed Tevi and Davenport before the draft. Those signings were for depth, and they had NO bearing on how the draft/Fisher situation went down. If we had drafted a LT that needed time to develop, and wasn't ready by week one, we'd be in the same situation. No draft pick is a sure thing (Quentin Nelson was as close as you can get, but even HE had negatives in the draft process).
  2. I'll be completely honest here: Favorite - Malik Hooker I bought in to the hype about him being the next coming of Ed Reed. Least favorite - Darius Leonard and Braden Smith There were players still in the board that I wanted. I've never been more happy to be wrong than my knee-jerk reaction to these picks.
  3. Stewart. I'm gonna make a distinction here that he's the most underrated but not the most underpaid. Anyone who can dominate a SOLID Tennessee line and stop Derrick Henry single handedly at the goal line deserves to be known. Buckner taking the double teams has allowed Grover to take his game to the next level.
  4. My post was saying that he proved TJ Carrie's point that the game mattered. I don't get what you're arguing here.
  5. I think you actually proved his point. The thought was that resting for the game was more important than winning that particular game, but the game of rest mattered greatly.
  6. I'm going with: Trade in the first: Yes Round 1: A: Teven Jenkins - OT Oklahoma State B: Gregory Rousseau - DE Miami C: Caleb Farley - CB Virginia Tech' Round 2: A: Samuel Cosmi - OT Texas B: Carlos Basham - DE Wake Forest C: Pat Freiermuth - TE Penn State Round 4: A: Walker Little - OT Stanford B: Amon-Ra St Brown - WR USC C: Josh Palmer - WR Tennessee Round 5: A; Pauson Adebo - CB Stanford B: Ifeatu Melifonwu - CB Syracuse C: Payton Turner - DE Houston Round 6: A: Nico Collins - WR Michigan B: Elerson Smith - DE Northern Iowa C: Adrian Ealy - OT Oklahoma Round 7: A: T.J. Vasher - WR Texas Tech B: Chauncey Golston - DE Iowa C: Matt Bushman - TE BYU
  7. Starting with close to $46mil in cap space, the first priority is setting $18-21mil aside to extend Leonard, Smith, Nelson, and Hines. That leaves us with only $25mil to play with. Restructures: I believe we have been waiting until we could make our trade final in order to restructure Carson Wentz's deal. Over the Cap says we can regain $18mil in space from that move alone. That brings us to $43mil in space. Resign: Mo Allie-Cox RFA: $2.2mil this year - Developing nicely and worth keeping around Zach Pascal RFA: $2.2mil this year - Good depth and borderline starter George Odum RFA: $2.2mil this year - Special teams demon TJ Carrie UFA: $1.4mil this year - Earned at least one more year Xavier Rhodes UFA: $7mil this year - Worth bringing back. I think the low cap for this year allows us to bring him back for less than expected. Al-Quadin Muhammed UFA: $2mil this year - Quality snaps for cheap Leave us with $24mil in cap space Sign: Tyus Bowser OLB: $5mil this year - Steps into the strong side linebacker role allowing Okereke to move to middle (which should be his natural position). His versatility is exactly what Flus wanted with Ben Banogu. He can cover when necessary, is great at setting the edge, and can move to DE and rush the passer on passing downs. Mitchell Schwartz OT: $12mil this year - Tackle with flexibility. Starts at left tackle for now. Chad Kelly QB: $two hot dogs - I think having three QBs on the roster is going to be standard from here on out That leaves $7mil heading into the draft and allows Ballard to have his cushion for the season. Draft: 1. Gregory Rousseau DE Miami - We want to trade back here, but Rousseau is too tempting to pass up 2. Walker Little OT Stanford - Seems to be a board favorite. Develops for a year or two and 4. Josh Palmer WR Tennessee - Fits the mold for what Ballard wants in a WR and could do well with better QB play 5. Quintin Morris TE Bowling Green - Receiving TE to match with the good blocking already on the roster 6. Jay Lenard S San Jose State - Safety and special teams depth 7. Charles Williams RB UNLV - RB depth Roster: QB: Carson Wentz, Jacob Eason, Chad Kelly RB: Jonathan Taylor, Nyheim Hines, Jordan Wilkins, Charles Williams WR1: Michael Pittman Jr, Josh Palmer TE: Jack Doyle, Mo Allie-Cox, Quintin Morris, Noah Togiai LT: Mitchell Schwartz, Walker Little LG: Quenton Nelson C: Ryan Kelly, Joey Hunt RG: Mark Glowinski, Danny Pinter RT: Braden Smith, Chaz Green WR2: Parris Campbell, Zach Pascal, Dezmon Patmon DE: Gregory Rousseau, Kemoko Turay DT: Deforest Buckner, Robert Windsor DT: Grover Stewart, Taylor Stallworth DE: Tyquan Lewis, Al-Quadin Muhammed, Ben Banogu SLB: Tyus Bowser, Matthew Adams MLB: Bobby Okereke, Skai Moore WLB: Darius Leonard, EJ Speed, Jordan Glasgow CB1: Xavier Rhodes, TJ Carrie CB2: Rock Ya-Sin, Marvell Tell CBS: Kenny Moore, Isaiah Rodgers S1: Khari Willis, Tavon Wilson, Jay Lenard S2: Julian Blackmon, George Odum Special Teams unaffected. The alternate path is to bring back Justin Houston instead of Xavier Rhodes and draft Greg Newsome instead of Gregory Rousseau.
  8. I thought so as well, but I wasn't sure. I thought it was Cam Heyward twice and Jurell Casey once?
  9. That'd be a LOOOONG list. I still believe in giving credit where credit is due, though. If they got past Big Q, they might be worth looking into if they become free agents. The way Q holds grudges, he could probably tell you the three off the top of his head.
  10. Does anyone know who got the three sacks? I seem to remember Cam Heyward for Pitt getting the better of him at least once. I think he gave one up against Ten once as well? Anyone have the list?
  11. There are only 20 names listed. We didn't pick in the top 20 picks. This should not be a surprise.
  12. Anyone else hoping we take a look at recently released guard Christian Westerman?
  13. Conditional does not necessarily mean it will go away if he doesn't make the roster. It just means that it can change under certain conditions. Like: It's a round 5 UNLESS he doesn't make the team; THEN it's a round 6. or It's a round 6 UNLESS he starts 10+ games; THEN it's a round 4.
  14. 1. I think CLE will have the advantage inside unless Autry can continue his current form. He's been handling Nelson pretty well in camp so far. The edges should be anyone's guess. Houston will probably win a few snaps, but outside of him both teams are pretty young. Turray and Banogu show promise, but they're both still raw. Extremely raw. 2. You'll be disappointed looking for this. I doubt we'll do much man coverage against Njoku, and it'll probably be Quincy Wilson or a safety covering him if we go man. Reich keeps it pretty vanilla in preseason. 3. Once again, I think Reich's vanilla coverage schemes should give CLE (especially Landry) a clear advantage here against the Indy defense. The CLE corners versus Indy WRs should be a lot of fun to watch, though (even with Campbell out). I expect Hilton to put on a decent show; and Cain, Johnson, and Fountain should be the names to look out for against the CLE backups.
  15. As good as Vontae Davis as he is right now? Too early to tell, but probably. As good as Vontae Davis was in his prime? Too early to tell, but doubtful.
  16. Besides the upcoming suspension (that seems more of an accident than a malicious attempt to cheat), has Lewan been suspended before? I never thought of him as a player with "issues."
  17. To all those wondering about the players who dropped in ratings, the Madden team mentioned that they were "expanding" their rating system. Where it pretty much used to be 99 to 60 (ish), it'll now be 99 to 30 (ish). I'm not saying our LBs aren't rated lower than they should be, but there will be plenty of teams with starters in the 60s this year.
  18. I stand corrected. Maybe they weren’t attributed to bad play on his part (batted at the line or knocked in the air by the receiver)?
  19. Are you referring to Manning's performances in the article? The article is about single-game grades, and Manning didn't throw a single INT in either game.
  20. Thanks! So we're practicing against two free safeties. That might actually be good practice if there's no tackling going on, but I think we're going to want more of a traditional SS by the time the pads are being put on.
  21. I don't think this is entirely about Geathers. I think it's a combination of Geathers and Farley both sitting out. Who do we have starting at SS in practices with both of them out?
  22. Not until he tosses The Duke!
  23. His proposed NASCAR package isn't too far away from our starting four last year who did an AMAZING job stopping the run.
