  1. Me too. I wanted him out of college. Injuries have set him back but if he is back at 100% I think he could be a stud.... But he has to prove it to make the 53.
  2. Advantage regardless. You either go to him or use him to shift the coverage to allow a secondary target to get open. The more attention he can demand, the more it helps the rest.
  3. A lot of good info. Should WR be avg of 5.25 instead of the 5.75?
  4. I'm not saying he's going to get cut, but wasn't Henry Anderson and Jonathan Hankins part of the town hall event the year they were shipped out of town? So I don't think this series will have any bearing on football decisions. That being said I think Cain will make an impact on our offense this year, but I wouldn't be surprised if it takes a few weeks to get is legs under him. I'm rooting for the kid.
  5. And I totally agree with that from a productivity view point. I have had to pick up my share of slack in nursing left by nurses with years more of experience than myself. All the while they are making much more money. So in that manner I would be more valuable/important to the unit/floor I was working, but the experience they brought when hired in made them a more valuable/worth more to the company and so started at a higher salary than I did.... And I agree it is a apples to oranges comparison. But if even an average orange costs $15-20 million while the best apple on the market can be had for $12million. Then the market dictates that apples are more valuable than oranges. Even if an apple a day keeps the doctor away and in that way would be more valuable to your health lol.
  6. I was referring to definition of valuable being: Webster's a: having monetary value b: worth a good price. You are right in there being other definitions as well when speaking of worth and value. But I do feel that pay is an important marker for how important a employer feels that you are. But definitely not the only factor. I only brought in compensation as evidence that could be considered. Other than that it's just a matter of opinion. And the only way one could prove it is for one to have more success without the other. Same as with Tom and Bill. Would they have won all those SBs without one over the other? We will never know. Maybe without Bill, Tom never gets a shot and is out of the league after a few years as a back-up. Maybe without Tom, Bill is ran out of town after a few disappointing seasons and neither become the legends they are today. There is no way of knowing for sure. So to me it's just a matter of opinion. But if you don't feel money is a factor that is fine with me. We all have different ways of looking at things, if we didn't this would be a pretty boring forum to visit. As with Luck and Ballard, I hope it is a long time before we have to find out which one is more important. But it is a fun question to consider.
  7. Webster's dictionary defines worth as -monetary value. Cambridge dictionary defines worth as -having a particular value, especially in money. So again by definition, Brady is worth more than Belichick. That does not mean that I think he is more important to the team. Importance and impact to the team are not the sole determinants to value/worth . Value/worth is also determined by the market of the position. That's why average QBs are worth more on the open market than star RBs. Doesn't mean the star RB is less important to the team. Just means he's not worth $20 million a year. I don't think we are in the disagreement that you feel we are. Just believe we are using different definitions to worth and value.
  8. You sure about that? https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwivwdqdiariAhVM0KwKHUCwBi0QzPwBegQIARAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Ftouchdownwire.usatoday.com%2F2018%2F05%2F04%2Fnfl-highest-paid-coaches-salary%2F&psig=AOvVaw3TNNhOBubherV4ASTWetn-&ust=1558440452170899&cshid=1558354551946 https://www.sportscasting.com/nfl/highest-paid-nfl-coaches-in-2018-plus-how-compare-to-college-football-coaches/
  9. Depends on your definition of valuable... the #1 definition of valuable is being worth a lot of money... So by definition Luck would be more valuable... I believe both are of great importance to the team and that both would be very hard to replace. Short term success I would say Luck helps more... Long term success I would say Ballard has a bigger impact simply based on the potential career length and role with the team... I would not say that one is more important than the other, but being more valuable? Money talks.
  10. The best way I can think of to see the value any employee has to their employer is by their pay....
  11. When I listened earlier i thought it was Green that they said they messed around with at LB and said he is going to be a DE, not Banogu. But i may be mistaken. .. I thought in yesterday's presser Ballard compared Banogu to Jamie Collins and will play a little bit of everything.
  12. http://www.nfl.com/videos/next-gen-stats/0ap3000001028469/Next-Gen-Stats-Top-edge-defenders-final-draft-score Next Gen Stats had em at 90 and 91 edge ratings. Have Banogu right in the mix tied for 5th best in the draft.
  13. not sure if already posted but I saw this a while back on the NFL app.. next gen stats edge rating of 90. Putting him at a tie for 5th in the draft. http://www.nfl.com/videos/next-gen-stats/0ap3000001028469/Next-Gen-Stats-Top-edge-defenders-final-draft-score
