    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.

    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.

    No surprise here. Good for him. This also removes the torture of him being available in the 3rd/4th rounds of drafts and losing my mind on taking the risk.

    It's not going to be comparable in the least. People making 500k from a non athletic related job have a totally different life than athletes, particularly those in a violent sport.

    Having Rosen as the starting quarterback would be a good way to tank without appearing to be intentionally tanking.

    I disagree with Elway's assessment. I think it'll be another 3 or 4 years before Flacco really hits his stride.

    maybe, maybe not. It all depends on whether the Steelers have a net loss, net gain, or neither in the number of Qualified Unrestricted Free Agents it acquires vs the number of Qualified Unrestricted Free Agents it loses. If they acquire a greater number of UFA's than they lose, or if it's a wash, then there will be no comp pick no matter what the new salaries were for the players lost and acquired. If they lose more than they gain, then the Bell salary comes into play and Steelers would get a 3rd most likely.

    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

    Bell took a year off, lost 14.5 mil, lost the chance at making 18 mil more overall, lost the chance to be the greatest Steeler RB in history and be a sure fire hall of famer with his childhood team, his mom's team, all to gain 2 mil more guaranteed upfront. The steelers offer also an additional 15 mil in rolling guarantees whatever that means...In the case of New York..... more is less.... his tax bracket more than doubled so he’s likely to take home less than he would have with the Steelers offer.... even with more “guaranteed”. Idiot. Oh well at least he had time to produce his new album

    Fun fact The Steelers will be paying more in dead cap space, than any other team will be paying any WR on their respective roster... Rumor from Florio...Big Ben said "Me or him...l will retire"

    He is better than what he has shown in games with slants and go routes but Rivers does not trust him and his arm ain't what it used to be. Not that it was big to begin with. Rivers has under thrown him plenty in practice and games. Taking TWill is not as much as a gamble as it seems ..IF...He ends up on a good team with a QB that can throw it where it needs to be.

    Not dysfunctional really. Just appears that way because of 2 players neither of which are the doing of the organization. Not sure what they coud have done to prevent Bells situation. It was u unprecedented. They offered Bell a ridiculous contract, the richest at the position and it wasnt enough and he himself created a circus by not communicating with the team. Ben has always done what Ben does, has had a radio show. The narrative out there is that he throws his teammates under the bus constantly. Its BS. He takes a lot of personal responsibility. Its never been an issue before and Mr BIG chest can't handle criticism, and cant handle that JUJU won MVP now he's creating a circus. What I will agree on is that Mr big chest should have been disciplined long ago. I don't think we are going to see to much nonsense allowed to continue after all this is over. TOMLIN no doubt has been told to shape up and is on the hot seat overall.

    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
