  1. Honestly I think I lot of these old guys have sour grapes because they played baseball too early and didn’t have a chance to get filthy stinking rich off it.
  2. I was at the Nats game in Baltimore when Asher pitched. He looked different than all the other pitchers that day. Just appeared very comfortable on the mound, poised and confident. Good size and frame too. Could be a find.
  3. They really don’t. The average attendees of a MLB game could not tell you what OPS even stands for.
  4. Players like Mancini are a dime a dozen. Players like Means are not.
  5. 1 pick for unsigned 1st rounder last year, 2 for losing Pollock and Corbin, 2 competitive balance picks, 1 via trade.
  6. Thought it would be fun to go back and look at how 3rd round pass rushers performed their rookie seasons. 2016 - Yannick Ngakoue (8.0 sacks) 2015 - Danielle Hunter (6.0 sacks) 2011 - Justin Houston (5.5 sacks) 2008 - Cliff Avril (5.0 sacks) 2001 - Derrick Burgess (6.0 sacks) 1997 - Jason Taylor (5.0 sacks) Your'e right, 1st year success isn't commonplace with pass rushers in the 3rd round. There were other guys that had great careers but not starting until their 2nd-4th season usually. Probably a guy or two that I missed, but the vast majority of 3rd round pass rushers drafted are guys that never made it or guys that had 1-3 sacks their rookie season.
  7. Don’t get this one. Even if they wanted insurance behind Lamar and RG3, this guy seems pretty underwhelming and likely could have been gotten as a UDFA I see some suggesting he could be our Taysom Hill but Hill has a lot more size and physicality.
  8. Browns got Mack Wilson so we’ll have a first hand look at him
  9. Seen some speculation that Marshall could be more of a safety at the NFL level.
  10. Buffalo, NYJ ,and SF are all games that should be winnable but are late in the year and probably go either way. Like Camden said I usually just split divisional games when trying to predict record. Houston, Seattle, LA, NE are all very tough games. We likely win 1 or 2 of those but could easily go 0-4. I think they end up with somewhere between 7 and 10 wins, we'll see what happens with the draft and the pre season.

    2019 NFL Draft

    The main knock on Metcalf is his route running which has certainly killed the careers of former R1-R2 WRs and has helped late round guys like Antonio Brown as of late to excel beyond their draft position. Metcalf's combine metrics compare to Stephen Hill and Alshon Jeffrey to give a range of NFL potential. Hill was highly touted due to his athleticism and size with also a 4.3 40 yd dash at similar size. He was a bust due in large part to his inability to grasp the professional route running tree. The main difference between Metcalf and these guys is that he is a lot stronger. He had about 10-12 more reps than these guys on the bench press.
  12. Came here looking for mention of Merandy Gonzalez. We should be all over him.
  13. Clears 7.5M in cap space according to Spotrac
  14. Daniel Jeremiah, who used to be a scout for the Ravens, has us picking Nasir Adderley, safety out of Delaware, with our first pick in his first mock draft. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001011490/article/daniel-jeremiah-mock-draft-10-kyler-murray-lands-with-patriots
  15. Of course not, as I said I want the focus to be on the game and the players. This whole season has been mired in officiating ineptness, more so than usual, which has taken away from that. In fact, I wanted the Patriots to win but I also wanted to see Mahomes get a chance to respond in OT. OT has always been incredibly anti-climactic and not resembling real football. I would greatly prefer the teams to play a full quarter of actual football. Even if another full 15 minutes is too much, a 10 minute period or something would suffice as long as it is a set amount of time. I realize this is all a long shot but if people don't complain about what they don't like about the ruleset we will be stuck with the antiquated and monolithic rules of the NFL until real competition comes along and forces change.
