  1. I think Jerrah deserves a lot of credit. He has built the premier offensive line in the NFL. And I'm not sure there is anything to figure out by other general managers. Prior to 2011, Dallas hadn't drafted an offensive lineman in the first round since 1981. Between 2011 and 2014, Dallas drafted 3 offensive linemen in the 1st round. So if team did want to "copycat" Dallas, they could use their 1st round picks in the next 4 years on offensive linemen and a stud running back. But even then there would be no guarantee that all 4 players would pan out.
  2. Philosophies and strategies can be copycatted. You can't copycat talent. I don't think any team can copycat 5 probowl level offensive linemen with a probowl level running back. It's the same as the early 90's Cowboys. Their run game was successful because of the talent, not the philosophy, Good luck trying to acquire 5 probowl level linemen and a probowl level runnning back.
  3. I hope at least Taz told Stewart in person that they are through. It would be really sad if Stewart had to find out from the internet or the media.
  4. I didn't understand how Starks got the 2-year/$6 million contract in 2016. He seemed like a veteran minimum guy last year. I bet if they Packers don't bring back Lacy that they'll sign Starks. Incidentally, I tried looking up Starks contract from last year on Spotrac and it was only available with a "premium" membership which costs $30 a year.
  5. What is it you like? Being nose deep in his rectum?
  6. I have no idea what is legal or illegal when it comes to sign stealing. But if stealing signs without taping isn't illegal, then what is the issue? Also, there might be no person whose opinion I trust less than Deion's opinion. Accusations are easy.
  7. And in the 2015 season, there were 109 throws from the 1 yard line in the NFL and zero interceptions until Wilson's. Also, the Seahawks had to pass the ball on either 2nd or 3rd down in order to get 3 more plays. If they had run it on both 2nd and 3rd down, there would have been no 4th down. But arguing these points on this board is impossible. No one will listen to big picture analysis. People here believe it was the one yard line therefore you should run it. These are the same people who constantly criticize offensive coordinators for poor play calling.
  8. When people say that Brady, Montana, or Rice are the best ever, I can't help but think a lot of their success is due to their coach. Peyton Manning, on the other hand, did it all himself. If Manning had been on the Patriots, I bet he'd have 5 rings, too.
  9. Matt Cassel was thoroughly mediocre the year he started for New England. The year before, the Patriots had possibly the best passing offense in the history of the league up to that point. Brady had 4,806 yards, 50 touchdowns, 8 interceptions and a 117.2 passer rating. With essentially the same offense, Cassel had 3,693 yards, 21 touchdowns, 11 interceptions and a 89.2 passer rating. While Garoppolo hasn't proven much, Cassel had shown he was probably nothing more than mediocre. Garoppolo looked good in both of his starts. In his 94 career throws, he has a 106.2 quarterback rating. Clearly it's a small sample size. But Belichick thought highly enough of Garoppolo to draft him in the second round when he had the best quarterback in football. Quarterback is an important enough position that I wouldn't hesitate trading a first round pick for him. It's high risk/very high reward. I'd rather trade a draft pick for Garoppolo than use a draft pick on an also unproven college player. At least with Garoppolo you won't have to wait for him to develop to know if you have the real deal or not.
  10. No setup is perfect. But there are plenty of commissioners who believe they have devised the perfect league. All setups have advantages and disadvantages with none being correct or perfect. Personally, I believe a 12 man roster is way too small regardless of league size. A 12 man roster punishes owners who build a team with good depth. And it makes bye weeks excruciating since quality players have to be dropped. I like the idea of leagues with more owners. The number of players in the NFL who are starter worthy is higher than ever. 10 or 15 years ago several teams would have to start chumps at wide receiver. Now it seems every team has 4-5 starter quality receivers. Even running back is deeper since the stats that a workhorse would have put up are now being split. The depth of 14 or 16 team league of today looks like the depth of a 12 team league from 15 years ago.
  11. Yep, my bad
  12. PFF still publicly shares some stats or rankings, but not a comprehensive list of every defender: https://www.profootballfocus.com/pro-top-25-nfl-cornerbacks-this-season/ https://www.profootballfocus.com/pro-ranking-all-32-nfl-secondaries-this-season/ https://www.profootballfocus.com/about/pff-signature-stats/#Coverage
  13. Mrs Palmer is 9 months pregnant and they have 3 other school age kids. I doubt they are going on "family adventures".
  14. He certainly seems done in Arizona. But if he is going to play next year, he might already have a deal in place with another team. Carson is from California, he and his wife went to USC, and they spend their off-seasons in San Diego. Carson going to the LA Rams would be a perfect fit. A franchise establishing itself in a new city wants to win. Losing too much might make fans lose interest or become Chargers fans.
  15. It worked out nicely with Elway
