  1. Rashaad Penny

    I see it the other way. Penny is a rookie and has to earn bellcow status. If he struggles in pass protection, he almost certainly won't be a 3 down back. I'm guessing the hope from the coaching staff is that Penny is in for 66% to 75% of the RB workload come halfway through the season.
  2. Dez Bryant

    Why is it taking so long for a no doubt tier 1 WR to get a contract?
  3. Rashaad Penny

    Sounds like you've certainly done some research that I haven't. Finding a way to get yards after initial contact, however, is an attribute that the Hawks admire. I also read that Penny had some pretty good games outside the Mountain West and forced 80 missed tackles in 2017 while gaining more than 1,200 yards after contact. Heck, I was surprised the Hawks didn't trade down again. But apparently they were willing to pick him at 1.18.
  4. Rashaad Penny

    According to this article, Penny was the best RB in the draft class for getting yards after contact when hit at or behind the line of scrimmage. https://www.profootballfocus.com/news/draft-san-diego-state-rb-rashaad-penny-a-first-round-talent
  5. Rashaad Penny

    He is poorly rated as a pass blocker and valued as a run blocker. This thread is about a running back.

    Their starting tackle was lost during preseason last year and should be good to go this year. They also signed Dickson and drafted Dissly who is described as a 5th lineman specialist in the TE position. Who knows how much and how fast the running game improves, but it will be a substantially different scheme and staff compared to last year.
  7. Chargers Tell Gates They Don't Want Him

    Taz didn't become a bandwagon Rams fan because they got good; it's because the Chargers are releasing a 70 year old tight end!
  8. Chargers Tell Gates They Don't Want Him

    Gates is an antique. The Chargers already exercised their loyalty by keeping him on the roster the last 2 years.
  9. The 2018 NFL Draft

    Hawks got Duane Brown fairly late last season via trade. They picked up Fluker and replaced Jimmy Graham with Dickson. Offensive staff replaced to focus on the run. It's not the optimal situation for a rookie RB, but it may get decent fairly quickly.
  10. Dez Bryant

    I had a friend was a big baseball player Back in high school He could throw that speedball by you Make you look like a fool boy Saw him the other night at this roadside bar I was walking in, he was walking out We went back inside sat down had a few drinks But all he kept talking about was Glory days, well, they'll pass you by Glory days, in the wink of a young girl's eye Glory days, glory day
  11. Dez Bryant cut

    If Dez wasn't up for a pay cut, it's a bit odd that they didn't have the courtesy to cut him before free agency started. Those things matter to future free agents when they are deciding what team to sign with.
  12. Dez Bryant

    All is you need is one Lord Dopie to take on his contract. But the only Update?
  13. Brandin Cooks traded to the Rams

    I think there is enough resume, statistically and eye test wise, that shows Beckham has been elite and a solid tier above Cooks. But, it's hard to argue with what the Rams are doing, kind of. It seems like an all out strategy for 2018. If Goff plays well again this season, he will be in line for a massive contract the following season and major cap restructure will need to happen. Of course, if the season pays off with a SB win, then it really doesn't matter. The Rams were already good before acquiring Suh and Cooks. They should be the amongst the favorites to win the SB. But, I can't help but remember the 2000 Redskins and 2011 Eagles "Dream Teams" and how things worked out for them after beefing up on the free agent market. Despite the Rams impressive roster talent, it's still largely a body of management, coaching, and players with one winning season and no playoff success. The potential for disappointment with longer term salary cap consequences seems plausible.
  14. Dez Bryant

    He'll almost certainly get an opportunity to prove that somewhere.
  15. Dez Bryant

    He's a soon to be 30 year old malcontent on a decline with a 16 mill cap hit. The plausible scenarios for a trade would either involve salary dump for salary dump or Dallas substantially sweetening a package deal to make the cap hit bearable. Most likely he's cut and signs a 1 or maybe 2 year guaranteed deal.
