Saints Raiders MNF


Recommended Posts

I think it would be good to see them get a W in their new digs but.......I gotta go with the team with the better roster, and that team resides in New Orleans.  Thomas being out will hurt, but it's not like they don't have anybody else on offense and that defense is not exactly chopped liver.  I see something like 34-27 Saints.

I'm taking the team with Josh Jacobs.

Saints are pretty good vs the run. It will be impressive if Jacobs gets 100+. IMO, Carr will need to do his share if da Raidas come out on top.

Does the new Raiders joint look like a roomba

it's a badazz stadium. The floating natural grass that is moved outdoors during the week is mind blowing.

 

The eternal flame is a bit much though...

I really don't like the fake crowd noise. It's ridiculous with an empty stadium to be honest. 

I don't mind the noise.  I just think there's too much of it.  Way too loud.  Can barely understand the announcers.

In my week 2 score prediction, I had the Raiders upsetting the Saints. Lets see if it holds up and they pull off the upset.

Well with calls like I just saw, safe to say NFL really wants Vegas to win it’s opener.

We drafted the Raiders Kicker Daniel Carlson in the 5th round a few years ago. Zimmer cut him after he missed 3 FGs in his first or second game. He was picked up by the Raiders and has been great!

My post did not age well.   Congrats to the Raiders, they looked pretty good.  Got the W in their new stadium.

 

I still don't know what is what in this league yet.

So, the Saints are not that elite team that Brady and the Bucs lost to?? Hmmm...:scratch:

LOL. No kidding. Week one major over-reaction. What has become clear is if the Saints continue to struggle with Brees' decline, the NFC South will be a worse division than the AFC East this year. Now how did that happen right when Brady landed there??? O.o

    • By now most should realize the Colts prefer to retain their own as much as possible.  The defense is much improved with the signing in place but always room for improvement at key positions.  Below is my FA/resign list have already put together mid-season.   Colts FA ~58m: QB Jacoby Brissett 21.3 WR T.Y. Hilton 14.5 TE Jack Doyle 8.5 RDE Denico Autry 5.7 ILB Anthony Walker 2.2 S Tavon Wilson 750k DB Tremon Smith 750k (keeper?) WR Marcus Johnson 582k (practice squad) S Malik Hooker 4m WR Ashton Dulin 542k   Resign ~ 90m QB Philip Rivers 26.3m (probably will drop) DE Justin Houston 11m (3-4 good years left like Mathis and Freeny) DB Xavier Rhodes 8m RG Mark Glowinski 6.9 (improved game this year) RDT Grover Stewart 7.5m (most improved player on defense) DE Al-Quadin Muhammad 3m OL Le’Raven Clark 1.2m DB T.J. Carrie 1.2m (special teamer) TE Trey Burton 4.5m S George Odum 1.25 TE Mo Alie-Cox (RFA) – 6.25m DT Taylor Stallworth 1m (otc hit 4.8m in 1 game) LT Chaz Green 850k (special teams) WR Zach Pascal 7m RB Marlon Mack 4m (when healthy proved to be lead back) C Joey Hunt 300k RG Jake Eldrenkamp 200k (special teamer) Edge Cassius Marsh 250k (special teamer) TE Farrod Green 200k (practice squad) S Ibraheim Campbell 200k (special teamer)
    • Originally was thinking we would be closer to 100 mil in cap space but sounds more like 75 mil.  Kind of why for this example only budgeted ~40 mil for FAs after calculating ~95 mil to resign players while leaving a minimum of 20 mil to sign draftees.  This should still allow discretionary cap space for the Club to do as needed short-term.
    • I still have Patrick Jones II at the top of my early 2021 NFL Draft Board.  Would be happy to acquire either Weaver or Jones.  Other top names have seen but truthfully haven't been impressed with them as have been with these two players at RDE.
    • No one gets stoned anymore in civilized societies!   Wait, that didn't sound right...
    • We will need to hire a crime scene cleaning company to extract all the Titans' blood from the field turf at Lucas Oil Stadium
