  1. [dynasty] ... most under valued players?

  2. NFL draft 2018

    Most things I've heard so far sound like smokescreen. With so many blue chip quarterbacks available but no consensus number one pick, there is going to be more bs-ing than in most years. There is also bound to be a trade or two in those top picks. Personally, I don't think the Colts can pass on Saquon. Lately, teams have been hesitant to draft running backs early in the draft. But the last 5 running backs picked in the first round (Gurley, Gordon, Elliot, McCaffrey, and Fournette) have all panned out nicely. Any team would benefit from an improved running game but it'll be especially helpful to Luck since a legit run game will prevent defenses from teeing off on him. Saquon also has elite pass protection skills. He allowed zero quarterback hits and 4 hurries this last year. He is exactly what the Colts' offense and Andrew Luck needs.
  3. Bill Belichick to retire

    Gronk could just be posturing in order to get a new contract this summer. He is a bit underpaid at $8.9 million in 2018 and $10 million in 2019. The Patriots probably would like to wait a year before giving him a new mega-contract.

    I hope Belichick leaves and becomes a coach somewhere else. It'd be fun watching him build a program from the ground up.
  5. Alex Smith

    When was the last time a young, legitimate quarterback was on the free agent market? I can't remember any. Bidding for Kirk Cousins could get crazy high. And whatever he gets will affect what elite quarterbacks get paid henceforth.
  6. AFC Championship Game

    Most coaches in the NFL make bad strategic decisions. They make bad clock management decisions. They should go for it 4th down waaaaay more than they do (punting is a turnover). They aren't good at making on-the-spot decisions and they play with scared money. I think teams should have their general manager up in the skybox make a lot of those decisions. The general manager doesn't have to juggle 3 jobs at once during the game so he could focus on making the strategic decisions. It would let the coach focus on playcalling and coaching the players. Also, the general manager usually is smarter than the coach and can better understand game situation strategy.
  7. XFL 2.0

    https://www.cbssports.com/wwe/news/this-is-the-xfl-again-controversial-football-league-set-to-return-in-2020/ Will the new and improved XFL be a success?
  8. AFC Championship Game

    Not all division rivalries are the equal. I am a Packers fan but I would root for the Lions if they played the Patriots without a second thought. But I root against the Vikings or Bears in any circumstance. Actually, I would root for the Vikings or Bears if they played the Cowboys. A Packers fan's hate for the Cowboys is of a burning intensity. The wounds from our 3 straight playoff losses to Dallas in the 90's are fresher and deeper. Some wounds don't heal. A Packers fan's hate for the Bears is more tradition than anything else at this point.
  9. What is going on with the Browns?

    A lot of short quarterbacks on that list. At least half are 6'1" or shorter.
  10. What is going on with the Browns?

    After reading the speculation in this thread that Hue could be fired after 4 games into the season, I was curious which coach was fired quickest in NFL history. George Allen was fired after the LA Rams started 0-2 in the preseason of 1978. He hadn't even been the coach there the year before. He switched to the broadcast booth that season in a 3-man crew with Jim Brown and Vin Scully. The Rams proceeded to go 12-4 and made it to the NFC championship game.
  11. AFC Championship Game

    I think the Patriots have a tough road to win another Super Bowl. Their offense is not as dominant as in previous years. Their offensive line is not as good as in previous years. Jacksonville, Philadelphia, and Minnesota probably have the 3 best defenses in the NFL. Any of these defenses can beat the Patriots at the line of scrimmage. I won't be at all surprised if the Patriots only score 17 or 21 points this week or in the Super Bowl. Although the Patriots defense has also been playing extremely well over the last three-quarters of the season. So maybe the Patriots can pull out a win even if their offense falters. The truism has always been that defense wins championships. But that really hasn't been true for a long while. Over the last 20 years, having a dominant offense has been far more important than defense with only a couple of exceptions. But the NFL goes in cycles. It has been a long time since the final 4 teams have been as dominant on defense as these teams. Maybe this is the start of a new era where defense shines.
  12. AFC Championship Game

    I've been hearing rumors that Brady didn't really injure his hand in practice. He missed practice to have surgery to add a 6th finger so he has a finger for each ring.
  13. Don't threaten me with a good time! And I have watched football in a garage. On a 27" tv. Sadly, garage football watching might include a propane space heater but I've never been lucky enough to have cheese curds or brats in that setting. But maybe one day.
  14. AFC Championship Game

    I am all for an offense doing the opposite of what is expected. When people complain about play calling, they are usually complaining that the team didn't do what was predictable. But running a sweep on 4th and 1 is just stupid. It is so easy for a defense to tackle for a loss in space. Throwing a deep pass would have been better. And a quarterback sneak is predictable but still usually effective. Big Ben probably weighs 260. Does he have a history of being bad at quarterback sneaks?
