    I've been reading this board for nearly 10 years. Sorry, but I have to ask you: why do you ALWAYS seem distort, exaggerate or inaccuratley restate what someone else says? You freaking do it all the time dude. Why would anyone here would even want to converse with you when it is almost a sure bet you will distort what the other person says in your zest to argue? Never fails. Just so you know... when you do that, it is extremely obvious and you lose any shred of credibility you might have once had.

    OBJ/Landry/Chubb/Hunt/Duke/Njoku. That is 100% the best skill position team in the NFL, not even close.

    Since the discussion moved here... In addition to the Huddle News and AB tweets, Rotoworld had some info. If he is just going to play petulant child and refuse to play for teams so he can dictate his new team, the Steelers should just tell him "screw you, you're a Steeler and you'll sit on the bench.Go play baby on Twitter" I hope this ends horribly for him, he deserves it.

    Rosen will never be elite but he'll be serviceable - I really do compare him to Eli. He won't single-handedly win a ton of games but he won't lose a lot either. Having Barkley and Engram will be a QBs best friend. If Shepherd pans out and Tate plays above average, they draft a WR early this year, that offense will rival some of the NFLs best for the next few years. They're really not that far off which is what (to me) makes Rosen intriguing in that offense. They need to capitalize now in order to take advantage of low $$ at skill positions, not wait to draft and develop a rookie QB next year.. Only to be stuck with having to pay $$ to keep Barkley, Engram and Shepherd. (if they choose to). Traded away OBJ for say Rosen, Metcalf/Harry, a 3rd rounder and Peppers, yeah - Giants won that trade!!

    People crack me up when they generalize NFL players like they're all the same. On any given day, there are approximately 1,696 players on rosters and because of a few incidents a year the players are generalized to be "abusers, thugs, pimps, etc." 99.9% of the league appears to stay out of legal trouble, but people like to focus on that .1%.

    I have faith in Shanahan. It is impossible to predict who will be fantasy relevant but there is potential for fantasy gold with Shanahan at the helm. 9ers players are the perfect lottery tickets in the 13th-18th rounds of the fantasy draft.

    I think you are overthinking this. Mayfield has a gunslinger mentality. OBJ can beat anyone in a jump ball type scenario, and frequently he can beat any two guys in those scenarios. What's the point of having an all-world WR if your QB is too gun shy to let him make a play (think Brock Osweiler's impact on DeAndre Hopkins). This marriage is closer to perfect than you've led on. The only argument you've really made here is that Mayfield is too short to throw slants and such over the middle, but Drew Brees is shorter than Mayfield and manages just fine with those routes. Again, I just think you've gotten too microscopic in the analysis.

    I saw that was gonna happen last night and saw that it did this morning. Being in those 32 team leagues has made me aware of Harris. Glad to have him

    Stupid. He's going to prove, just like Demarco Murray did, that the RB isn't all about talent. It's the system that makes the RB. He went to a horrible spot. I for sure won't touch him in fantasy next year. No way, Jose! Or is it HoZay?

    The Bucs had 4 quality wide receivers and 2 quality tight ends last year. Howard wasn't competing for snaps and targets with stiffs. Most teams don't have 3 quality receiving options much less 6. Howard might have also been the victim of poor coaching strategy. He is a beast. And you're probably right that he should have been featured more regardless of competition. He still was the 6th highest scoring fantasy tight end when he went on IR after week 11. And he had the second highest PFF grade for a tight end on the season mainly due to his 90.1 receiving grade (after an abysmal 61.4 overall grade his rookie year). Leftwich doesn't have much of a track record but Arians definitely didn't feature a tight end during his time in Arizona. But it was maybe just because he didn't have a quality tight end to feature. The Cardinals did use a 2nd round pick on receiving tight end Troy Niklas in 2014 which would indicate that Arians did want to feature a tight end in the passing game in Arizona. Any good coach is flexible in philosophy according to the players on the roster. Howard's best case scenario is that Arians will utilize him but want to cut/trade Brate (there has been a lot of chatter that Brate will be gone before his 2019 salary fully guarantees on March 17th). Over his entire career, Winston has been extremely effective throwing to tight ends (probably has something to do with his sidearm delivery). His stats are equal to any quarterback in the league when targeting tight ends. I think Howard is in line for a monster year.

    There you go again... Nobody here said or implied that "lying is worse than abusing a child". Your responses always are manipulative like that. Let's be clear.... KC fired Hunt because he lied through his teeth in a meeting.. right to the GM's and HC's face. Maybe the Chefs would have dumped Hunt anyway, even if he were truthful in that meeting, maybe not.. but I'll tell you this... If one of my employees lies to my face about violating the law, "team" rules or other act that is detrimental to the company and the people associated with it... he is out of here. That in no way says or implies that domestic/child abuse is more acceptable than lying. How in God's name did you distort what he wrote into that manure anyway? geez

    The problem wasn't CMC obviously it seemed to be the passing game. I don't know if Cam lacks weapons or if Cam is is just not accurate enough. Or both. Gurley makes me a little nervous. I think I'd be taking Zeke #2. Im hoping to grab Chubb or Kerryon sometime in the draft. Mixon too. I think all three of those will have good years.

    there was an HBO real sports segment not too long ago where demaurice smith got grilled pretty hard and basically accused of not taking the best deal for the players...I work for a DOD contractor and their is a union presense where I work....I think its foolish to think that all who work on behalf of the union always have "john q union worker's" best interest in mind all of the time....its not crazy to think a briefcase or two fo cash cant be handed over in order for the union to make concessions the company wants and mask it by saying "well we got this though"=something the company doesn't really care about but can be made to look beneficial listen...managing/owning an nfl team and keeping it successful is as difficult as its ever been....players wanting raises...players finding raises somewhere else and having to replace them...having to satisfy star players while managing money and not crippling the overall health of the team...its tough...its not the nba with 12 guys...or mlb with 25.....its hard to keep a team competitive....its more difficult than ever.....I understand the management/ownership side....and I get it I also get the players side of the coin...and I'm not going to go over that again and rehash it...you know their beef....so its only natural that both sides, with solid points, are going to clash....and that's what were seeing but...its probably going to have to be the owners who are going to have to give something up to make things better.....and those guys don't like to do that...they don't like losing if you are going to make a big budget action movie...and you love the director you have....the script/plot...and you have a 125 million dollar budget...you think this film will bring in 325 mil at the box office if its done right.....you gonna go out and pay some up and comer, 25 year old, actor to star in it? pay him 3-4 million? "hey I think this guy is a breakout waiting to happen...this picture can launch him".....maybe.....but most guys are gonna go out and get the rock or Wahlberg and pay them 15-20 mil yeah conner did well....but the steelers didn't make the playoffs......and now brown got out and its probably going to be more difficult for them to make the playoffs....bell might have lost a few bucks but I bet it was just as personal...about respect....for a guy helping the steelers win while putting himself on the line 400x a year.......its probably worth it to him I still stand by what I said about the system being out of whack in the nfl...at the very least the franchise tag is outdated and needs to be done away with

    I was in the dark as usual, if I'm not on here or another sports site I'm on I miss a lot of news. Don't get any feeds or stuff on the phone. Was home and watching stuff on my DVR and Youtube, then watched 11PM news and was like Total shock, was not a fan of trying to acquire him last year when there was talk about him, and the price is pretty steep but it makes them a serious contender now and for years to come. With rest of AFCN in decline the future is bright. Now if we could just get Brady/Bill to retire. PS Good point on Calloway, the RB/WR/TE group is amazing. OL is strong, Baker is going to have a field day with this team.

    I am over the top elated with this signing. I was a tad bit down on also giving up Peppers but he's an up and coming, not an already there. If we sign Earl Thomas, great. I bet we go LB in the 2nd now, if we don't trade back into the 1st. S and CB will need addressed this draft as well. I can't remember when I was so excited to watch this team. I saw the disgust in Giants fans tweets...they didn't get enough. They got what the could to remove him, like the Steelers and AB, which makes the signing of OBJ last year all the more head scratching. Mayfield's mobility will help the playmaking ability of OBJ, not hinder it. 4400 yds and 33 TDs for him this season. When you can strip down your team to an over-the-hill QB and a stud RB, you do it, apparently.

    Jets or jet-skis!!! I'm sure bell knew at some point he wasnt getting that lost money back...I'm sure he was prepared for just about every scenario As I always say...fans look at stuff from a different perspective... completely different...alot of players and former players are congratulating him...it's about the system and pushing back on the owners who have it really good...the system is a hit screwed up and the owners love it There's a good portion of people that are rooting against bell and brown...probably alot...most civilian fans who work alot for a modest living ...but there's some people who are happy for brown and bell...most guys who have sacrificed their bodies and heads for these owners to make money hand over fist....those guys seem to be happy for bell and brown...they understand the game and business better than us I'm sure somewhere bell is smiling and happy knowing he and brown are gone and the Steelers have to go on without two stars....maybe the Steelers weather it just fine and don't skip a beat....but maybe they don't ...and if.they don't make the playoffs or win a playoff game over the next couple of years people will always have to wonder The nfl needs to do something about salaries and structure...the franchise tag system is outdated now and the whole thing is a mess

    Well, I'm not passing on him at #1. Metcalf is a physical beast. A 4.33 (40) is SICK at his size. He's not going to make the HOF running "hitch" routes. He's a vertical threat who will dominate physically. He ran his 3-cone drills and 20-yard shuttle after his 40 and long/vertical jumps and it skewed his results. MANY other WR's didn't even do these drills that day because of this. He also benched 27 reps. A man among boys in this combine. Of course.....JMHO

    Exactly what he wants. He wants to make it clear he ain't going back bit ain't going where they want to send him. He wants to be released and that is not happening
