wth are they doing? this is insane. God, I'm so happy we didn't get Gruden ... 

 

I don't understand what's wrong with this deal. Great LT hits the market, he's going to reset the market.

He has injury concerns yea, but when healthy hes a very good cover corner

Verrett has been San Diego’s slot nickel corner.  He’s small...  5’9” and about 185 or so.

 

And we have Kenny Moore. 

 

Its also not clear how much all those injuries have taken out of JV. 

 

Just some food for thought...

I dont know but I was thinking the same thing. Swinging for the fences in a hurry it looks like

Tampering started at noon, teams can agree to terms just not officially sign until 4pm Wednesday.

Got it. I get that, just a matter of whether he's actually good, not necessarily the investment in a LT.

I guess that's the OL market now. Though I never understood why SF traded him to move up a couple rounds in the draft. Seems like the type you would keep when you just got a shiny new franchise QB.

 

NE yet again scores a 3rd round comp pick. They moved back 50-60 spots from the end of the 3rd round...got Brown for a season to be their starting LT (and won the Super Bowl)...and now will collect a 3rd round comp pick. It's like these other teams want NE to win every year.

 

And there are so many Colts fans that don't want Ballard to trade picks.

Yeah... it's weird. LTs will get paid, but IMO they sold a MUCH better offensive lineman in Osemele for peanuts and paid Brown like he's a top 3 OT in the league... he's not... he's not close to being there.

They didn’t announce it.

 

Odds are this comes from the player’s agent.   He’s not obligated to keep it secret.   He wants the news out there.

There is also the question of Talent vs Scheme/Coaching

 

   Obviously Gruden thinks his scheme and OL coaches will mesh better than BB

Rumors that the Texans offered the Honey Badger a multi-year deal at $9.5M a year and he decided to test free agency instead since he believe he is worth more.

 

Going to be interesting to see how this Safety market shakes out and who the Colts end up with .

I got a chuckle at this.

1. Get a new good LT

2. Get a new good LG

3. Get a new good C

4. Get a new good RG

5. Get a new good RT

6. Build a new stadium that is not owned by TY Hilton

7. Try not to call TY Hilton a clown, a scrub or anything of the sort the week before the games.

The raiders are crazy. They are just throwing cash everywhere. They have three 1st rounders they need to build the team with the draft. They are trying to buy a SB.

    • You are the one forming a conclusion about Reich's performance.  So what is it, that he should have called more pass plays because we won last time by doing that and we lost this time when we called more run plays?   That's it?   About Williams, as I said, perhaps Williams can't do things in the passing game that Mack can, and can only run between the tackles well and not the edge.  I pointed out that we ran the same between the tackles run play about 8 times.  I assume Frank made those calls because that's about all the player who was available could do, at least at this point with the team...not to mention it was working.   If you want to use stats to form conclusions, fine by me.  But it would be less condescending and inflammatory if you would stop insinuating that others who don't use them much have inferior support for their conclusions.       
    • It's only funny because it's true.  
    • Look at this play. Only one receiver is looking back at the QB. JB was sacked on this play.    
    • Ballard has spent his entire time here rebuilding this team to where it is now very competitive and currently in a close division race.  Luck messed everything up but he traded for JB and gave him a new contract.  He might not be an all pro but he can win if he has a good supporting class.  I can see Ballard drafting a QB but trading up in the 1st rd to get one is something I can't envision.  Rookie QB's make rookie mistakes and rarely win out of the gate.  I think he thinks this team is very close right now and moving up to get a QB would be a risky maneuver that I don't see him making.  
    • You're arguing over the difference between a JAG 30 year old and a JAG 24 year old. It's inconsequential. Neither Inman nor Pascal make the offense better.     I agree, but which players?     My criticism isn't really about the amount of runs vs the amount of passes. It's about creating an opportunity for your offense to exploit the opposing defense.   And along those lines, if the conventional wisdom is you should establish the run to set up play action, then at what point was the run established last night? When was the Texans' defense primed for a play action fake? It makes me think that's not the strategy. They wanted to avoid throwing the ball as much as possible, is what I think.     Yeah, and maybe a big play or two from our offense would have resulted in a win.   And the bolded didn't hold true at the end of the game, did it? First and 10, run play, 2 yards. Next first and 10, run play, 2 yard. Next first and 10, run play, 0 yards. Situational play calling is way more important than yardage totals.
