  1. I don't think he has anything to worry about. He's a 24 year old with an MVP and Super Bowl championship under his belt. If the Chiefs don't/can't pay him $35-40 mil a year, some other team will. Regardless, he's going to get paid.
  2. Plenty of threads on this topic
  3. They act like Ballard gave him a 6 year deal with a huge cap hit. It's a 1 year deal. If it works out, great. If it doesn't, both sides move on. In my opinion, it's low risk, high reward
  4. The same way a guy can play at an elite level and not get a Pro Bowl nod, like Darius Leonard in 2018. The Pro Bowl is more just a popularity contest based on name recognition. I like to use All Pro nods as the more reliable indicator of a guy's play. Aaron Rodgers made the Pro Bowl last year even though his numbers were nothing special (barely hit 4000 yards, didn't hit 30 TDs).
  5. Pro Bowl nods don't real mean anything anymore, so I wouldn't really use that as a basis of how well a player is playing. As for Rhodes, this is just a 1 year deal. If he comes in and is awful, we don't re-sign him next year and we move on. At the very least, he's a veteran with plenty of success, so he can mentor guys like Rock Ya-Sin and Marvell Tell. Yes, he was awful last year. But he'll be 30 when the season starts, so still plenty of football left in him and plenty of opportunity for him to regain form
  6. The Eagles would give up a 3rd round pick and a starting receiver only to pick up later round picks? It's usually picks + player for earlier picks, not later.
  7. I think it's the coronavirus holding things up. I believe that was the issue with Brady and the Bucs as well. Physicals are required for nearly every contract, and teams like to conduct those with their own doctors, but with travel restrictions and all that, it makes things more difficult. This was a topic on the Pat McAfee Show the other day.
  8. I agree. I think he's better than his reputation, especially on here. A healthy Cam utilized properly by coaches is still a dangerous weapon, in my opinion. I think teams are just waiting for the dust to settle, so to speak. The first dominoes have fallen (Rivers, Brady, Brees, etc.), so now it's time for teams to re-organize their priorities and time for that second tier of QBs to find a home, like Dalton, Cam, and Jameis. Another factor as to why he doesn't have a team yet is probably because there are so many available options and not that many jobs.
  9. If they wanna pinch pennies, 4 years/$118 mil/$62 mil guaranteed to Tannehill was insane. He played well for them, but almost $30 mil a year for a guy who doesn't even average 250 yards a game? I'm also not a cap expert, but I imagine they could have restructured Casey's deal to save some cap money. And if all that fails, they could still have gotten much better than a 7th round pick for him.
  10. I understand his cap hit is a little high, but he's 30 years old and can still play. And after the run they had in the playoffs, I'd imagine the Titans are in win-now mode, so getting rid of him doesn't fit in with that. On top of it all, they only got a 7th rounder back for him. Crazy
  11. I think he'd be a great fit in Chicago. They don't need an MVP level QB. They need someone who won't turn the ball over and won't cost them games while the defense suffocates opponents. Same goes for Minny.
  12. Buckner is 26. That was hardly a win-now move. I think it was more about adding great talent to the team
  13. Glad it's just for 1 year. I think a significant part of Rivers' role in Indy will also be mentoring whatever rookie QB they bring in, assuming they do so. In an ideal world, Love or Herbert fall to 34 and they sit for a year behind Rivers.
  14. Can't stand Diggs. I'm just glad he isn't anywhere near Indy
  15. And they signed Randall Cobb to replace him. This makes absolutely no sense. But as a Colts fan, I think BOB deserves a contract extension with Houston
  16. Sure, but that's not the measuring stick on how we stack up against the other contenders. It's great to beat the Knicks and Cavs, but what good is it if you go 1-3 against Toronto and 1-3 against Milwaukee?
  17. Interesting that you say this. NFL.com and Walter Football both say the opposite. NFL.com: Walter Football: At the same time, the video and NFL.com say he needs to improve his touch on his throws whereas Walter Football says "On top of power, Herbert shows a nice ability to loft in touch passes and throw receivers open" Three different sources say three different (sometimes contradictory) things about the same prospect. That's why evaluating prospects and scouting is so difficult and is more an art than a science. At the end of the day, the only important thing is how Ballard, the scouts, and the coaches feel about him.
  18. I'd say it's because they're underwhelming wins. A 4 game winning streak is nice, but the Pacers didn't beat a single playoff team in those 4 games. It's meaningless to beat up on weak teams. The last few times the Pacers played a playoff team, it was: -embarrassing blowout loss to Toronto -beat the Bucks who didn't have Giannis -lost to Brooklyn -lost to Toronto back to back -lost to Dallas -lost to Utah The next 5 games will be very telling. We've got the Bucks, Bulls, Mavs, Celtics, and 76ers coming up. Let's see how this team responds against some real competition
  19. Again, you don't pay a guy $20 mil a year and give him 30 mins a night so he can be the league leader in blocks. I understand his defense is elite, but that's not good enough at this level. He needs to do more
  20. One good performance doesn't negate a career of underwhelming performances. He's still averaging less than 12 points and 7 rebounds this year despite being a starting 6'11" C with nearly 30 mins a night. You don't pay a guy $20 mil a year and give him starter minutes so he can put up 12 and 7, have a PER of 14.5 (below league average), and have less rebounds than Kawhi Leonard, Russell Westbrook, Lonzo Ball, and James Harden. The Pacers are among the worst RPG teams in the league, and Turner has no excuse for his contribution to that. He's soft.
