*UPDATED* Tyreek Hill traded to Miami


Recommended Posts

I figured this would happen at some point.  The Chiefs are going to find it hard to avoid all of the stars that they've produced in the last few years -- especially as the big dollars on Mahomes' contract kick in.

 

Hill can command a lot of capital in a trade.  I can see where the Chiefs figure they might be better off getting some players and picks than trying to afford the kind of extension he's been seeking.

Wow. Not without merit, there're wides in this class.

 

 

The money these receivers are getting is mind boggling. WR's are going to start being like QB's where you can only maintain a team when they're on rookie contracts.

The money the WR position is getting paid, and the assets surrendered to trade for them, is going to be looked on as a massive, massive, mistake in a few years.

 

This year, next year, and probably every year thereafter....there will be a plethora of easily available WR options in the draft ....year in, year out.  Why am I so sure of this?

 

Look at College, and even HS ball.  The offenses are less and less run centered.... It's all about slinging it around and gaudy stats.  Even in HS, you have hundreds of 1000 yd WR. In any given year.  It's now THE high dollar, glamour position second to QB.  

 

This means talented athletes will always look to see if they can play at WR before other positions....the demand for them is high, and the game, glory, and stats are equally inflated now. 

 

The flashy, productive, wr will be as easy to find as a serviceable RB.  Maybe even as early as this draft....and continuing for the foreseeable future.... The glut of WR means they are going to soon be a dime a dozen.... As such, I see, (so does CB I'm sure) zero reason to pay premium prices in terms of assets, not $$ to obtain and retain WR.

Miami Dolphins have Waddle and Hill. Good young TE in Gesicki too.

 

Meanwhile Ballard will continue to undervalue the WR position.

 

Pittman Jr. and Hill would have been insane to watch.

While I might agree with overall what you mean, I think Hill worth that money, there are fast, very fast and him with ever improving catching ability

But yeah, you aren’t wrong

Now, if I am Ballard, I make a call to get DaVante Parker for a 4th rounder.

WR are soon to be RBs.... Sure there will be Jonathan Taylor's.... But for every one of him, there's gonna be 100 of the Marlon Macks of the WR world.  

 

Miami will end up looking like * yet again for this trade.

But yet the Dolphins have an average QB so none of it matters. They won't even make the playoffs. Bills and Pats both are better in their division. We have a good QB and we will win our division with Matt Ryan.

Probably. But, this helps our chance in the AFC. We need the Dolphins to beat the Patriots once & to win some of the conference games to give us a chance at a better seed/wild-card with the AFC being as loaded as it is

Good point but I truly believe we will win our division now that we got Matt Ryan. He is clearly better than Ryan Tannehill where Wentz wasn't, that was pretty even. Tennessee won a lot of close games last year and we lost several close games. That could easily turn around. I think we split with Tennessee this year as well. Henry and Taylor are pretty equal at this point too. Pittman IMO will be good if not very good this upcoming year. Hines is our ace in the hole, he will benefit from having Matt at QB. I can see him having a huge year receiving wise. On the defensive side, adding that pass rusher from the Raiders was a nice move and we create more turnovers than anyone. Leonard will come in healthy which he wasn't last year. We need to add a good TE and a better LT and CB. Draft is coming up so it will be interesting.

Welp.. that's one less team in the AFC.. just wow. 

 

Massive QB contracts do that. Chiefs window was open and they blew it. Just like Seattle.. 

 

 

After a year or two, they might be better for it. The NFL can be won by guys like Tyreek but the bread and butter has been the intermediate game since NFL Ds have gotten better at rolling coverages towards guys like Hill and Hill might slow down in a couple of years. I just do not think the Chiefs got enough in return though they got more than the Packers got for DaVante Adams, technically speaking.

Tennessee went 12-5 last year without Henry for a large portion of the year. They won't be as easy to beat in the division as you think. Urban Meyer was also an awful coach for the Jags, and after reading recent reports about his time in Jax, I believe he is 100% responsible for Trevor Lawrence's struggles, as Lawrence seemed to pick it up a bit at the end of the year after Meyer was fired. With Doug Pederson in charge, a big FA period, the no1 overall pick, and a second year for Trevor Lawrence, they aren't a terrible team IMO as in previous years. Texans are the Texans for now, but the return for Deshaun Watson will help them catch up in the division a bit if they hit on even 3 or 4 of the six 1st round picks in the next 3 years. 

 

I still think at this point, even with Matt Ryan, we are the 2nd best team in the division by a longshot. Additional moves may change my mind, but we are running out of time.

Tennessee swept us last year and we dug a 0-3 hole, with Matt it won't happen. Wentz gave away that 2nd Tennessee game which made it impossible for us to win the division. We won't lose at Jacks either with a QB like Matt. I hope everyone remembers what I am posting because when we win the division I will be doing this Snoop Dogg Dancing GIF by Romy

Dolphins would be happy with a Robert Woods like trade for a 6th, I get the feeling. Behind Hill, Waddle, Gesicki, Edmonds, Parker might be No.5 in the feeding chain and unless they run 3 WR sets and they have Cedric Wilson too, he may not see the field. What is the most they will say for a 6th? No, or ask for a 5th?

Tyree Hill is now  like 40 minutes away from me taking my very young granddaughter to see. We'll be seeing a Turquoise blur running by defenders. Lol ....can Tua throw it deep enough downfield to him? 

 

KC is not as good today as they were yesterday. KC will draft a wr to take his place BUT Tyreek is not someone you can replace. I don't think I've ever seen someone so much faster than DB's.

Wow what speed!

 

But the chiefs will be ok because they still have Mahomes & Reid. 

 

I'm taking my Emma to see Marlins games too. :)

Yep absolutely zero reason to start writing the obituary. They have been in 2 of the last 3 super bowls, were in the afccg last year and Mahomes is so incredibly dangerous it seems like there is no deficit he cannot overcome.

A big part of it is Tyreek Hill though and the attention he garners. A quick hitter across the field and he takes it to the house. He is like Antonio Brown was in his prime, no single guy could keep up with him.

The draft is stacked with receivers this year. KC ought to be able to find a guy who can be elevated by Mahomes.

 

Makes one wonder why they let Pringle walk if they knew this was a likelihood. Mecole, Juju, draft WR, Kelce.....they'll be fine, the triggerman is still there.

Calvin Austin III of Memphis and Danny Gray of SMU are both YAC specimens with terrific speed.

 

Yeah, it does make you wonder about Pringle who had the speed as well. Denarius Robinson is gone too.

You wanted the Colts to give up that haul and that contract for Hill?

Not Hill. He mayb the most explosive wr ever. He's a game changer. He's one of a kind and it probably killed the Chiefs to let him go.

I think Hill elevated  Mahommes more then Mahommes elevated Hill

    • I’m old enough to remember the 2021 season. 
    • My top 15 would be: Based on eye test (except Graham, Starr, and Unitas as I was too young to watch them live but I have seen film on them), stats, MVP's, over all win shares, longevity, talent, and clutchness, etc..   1. Tom Brady - eventhough I feel weary putting him here because there have been a couple of cheating scandals. 7 SB wins, 5 SB MVP's, 3 League MVP's, and his stats are among the best ever. His longevity is so impressive as well. He didn't cheat when the Bucs won it all in 2020, so there is that.   2. Joe Montana - 4 SB wins, 3 SB MVP's, 2 League MVP's. He had 0 INT's in 4 SB games, that is unbelievable.    3. Peyton Manning - 2 SB wins, 1 SB MVP,  5 League MVP's - most ever by any NFL player in history. He holds the record for most Yards (5477) and TD's (55) in 1 season = 2013. He was 3-1 vs Brady in AFC Title Games. I would put him in my top 3 all day. He is Mr. 12 wins a year.   4. Johnny Unitas - 1 SB win (1970) as an older starter but 2 NFL Championships in 1958 and 1959. He put up great stats for a QB that played in the 50's and 60's. He actually won a League MVP in the SB era (1967).   5. John Elway - Could do it all. Run, had a cannon for an arm. Once he got a running game in 1997 it wasn't fair. Won SB's in 1997 and 1998. Won League MVP in 1987. Stats wise not too shabby either = 50,000 yards passing and 300 TD's.   6. Aaron Rodgers - 1 SB win, 1 SB MVP, 4 League MVP's. He wins 12 or 13 games every year it seems in his sleep     7. Otto Graham - In his era, he dominated. Won several Championships. He belongs here at worse. I know how great he was but I just feel the other 6 QB's were better.   8. Drew Brees - Stats king, 1 SB win, he would be higher but no League MVP's.   9. Brett Favre - 1 SB win, he is the only NFL player to win 3 straight League MVP's in a row = 1995-1997. He put up huge numbers as well and was an iron man. He would be higher on this list but his total INT's has him here. He is still top 10 and fun to watch.   10. Dan Marino - the only QB I have in my top 10 that didn't win a SB/Championship. By eye test and talent alone he was top 10. He lost to Montana in his only SB appearance (1984), won the League MVP that season in 1984. He set records with TD passes and yards in 1984 that were video game numbers. He never had a defense or run game in his entire career.   11. Terry Bradshaw - He helped the Steelers to 4 SB wins, his stats weren't elite but he did win 1 League MVP, unlike lets say a Ben Roethlisberger who never won a League MVP. He had a stacked team but 4 is 4.   12. Steve Young - As a starter won 1 SB, had it not been for the Cowboys he probably wins 3. He won 2 League MVP's, Aikman never won an League MVP.   13. Roger Staubach - I think he was better than Aikman by the eye test who was also a Cowboys QB. He did win 2 SB's and went to 4 like Peyton as a starter. He was like Steve Young, he could run and scramble really well.   14. Troy Aikman - He helped the Cowboys win 3 SB's. Like Bradshaw on stacked teams but in big games his accuracy was spot on. IMO Emmitt Smith was the best player on his teams but without Troy they don't win 3 SB's either.   15. Patrick Mahomes - as a starter, has made 4 straight AFC Championships games, has won a SB and been too 2. He has won a League MVP, SB MVP, and has had a season where he threw for 5000 yards and 50 TD's = 2018. He is the best QB over the last 4 seasons easily and going into 2022 I have him #1. Even without Hill, they will still win the AFC West IMO.      - Omissions, people will say where in the hell is Sammy Baugh? Sammy is top 20 = great QB, here is the deal with Sammy. He was known as a top 20 football player of all-time because of his defense and punting ability along with his QB play, just not for his QB play. Was he a great QB, hell yes but not better than my top 15. Overall player he is arguably top 10 because of his defensive play and Punting ability's.    Where is Bart Starr? I say Top 20. He wasn't better than Mahomes though IMO.
    • Yup, after I posted, I looked it up. Looks like Coutee only had 2 weeks on the 53 last year, which he needs 6 min for an accrued season.    If TY isn't resigned, I think Coutee stands a decent chance of sticking on the 53. We're over stocked on bigs, not so much on Z/slot types. That is, unless they start running 6-3+ guys from Z... 
    • I think Coutee has one more year to accrue.
    • Coutee was a late waive (last cut day) by Houston that surprised a lot of folks, and we jumped on him quickly (I think it was around the time we knew TY would miss time). I don't mean necessarily that someone will grab him for a starter roll, but he'll get grabbed by someone (PS or 53). He's been in the league 4 seasons, but not sure he's met the accrued 4 year stipulation (weeks on 53). Strachan and Patmon both have a little film out there which will interest teams. Patmon has a bit of a rep for not being a my-ball guy, so that likely hurts him. Strachan is seen as raw with a high ceiling so teams are more likely to romanticize lol. All three would at least make it to a team, 53 or PS. But I think Strachan is the most likely claimed for a 53 spot.
