  1. I acquired AP in one of my keeper leagues last year, so now I have the option of keeping him. It'll obviously depend on where he goes, should be an interesting offseason.
  2. If Doug even stays in Tampa, his guaranteed $7M for next year is null and void. I could see Licht renegotiating the terms into a smaller amount of money, otherwise see ya to the Druggernaut. Having said that, I'd love to see what Doug can do when he's healthy and not having drug issues, and if he can remain healthy, but not for $7M and the risk of him relapsing and losing $7M.
  3. As far as T.O. goes... I'm torn. Numbers, he should be automatic for HOF, arguably the 2nd best WR of all time. HOWEVER... his extreme divisiveness tore up the locker rooms of 3 teams, including being sent home away from the team with Philly. That stuff affects play on the field, and as Belichick has said, you're not necessarily looking for the best players, but for the best team. T.O. continually showed his presence would ruin teams, not lift them up. I think those antics are causing his wait, and I think Moss will get in ahead of him next year, but I think Owens will get in.
  4. Cannot STAND that Jerry Jones got into the damn Hall of Fame; his inclusion, to me, reduces the importance of the HOF. He's rich and owns a team, and is a loudmouth.... And? People parrot that he "orchestrated" 3 Super Bowl victories, but how many since Jimmy Johnson (the real orchestrator) left? S'what I thought. Meanwhile, reports come out that the new HOFer had to be restrained by his son so he didn't draft Johnny Manziel. Whatever. I agree with TD, Warner, and LT. Do NOT agree with Anderson (he played 'til he was collecting Social Security, of course he had the most points, but he never had an impactful kick that I'm aware of, complete crap he made it into the HOF) and Jason Taylor (only credential is he won DPOY once... and? He had, what, 5 seasons of double-digit sacks? Meh. Hall of Really Good, but remind me of ONE impactful big moment where Taylor came through... did he push his team through to the playoffs? Have a good play in an AFC title game? Play in a Super Bowl? No, no, and no.) Frustrated that Lynch didn't get in. Per Dungy, the orchestrator of that defense, Lynch had the most responsibilities as the safety, and was renowned as a safety who could lay the wood as well as intercept (most of his interceptions came in the 4th Q). Huge interception against Washington in 1999 or 2000 playoffs, and spiked the ball in front of the Buc offense and screamed "DO SOMETHING" that helped propel them to a 14-13 win over Washington. Called the Raiders play "It was Sluggo C, wasn't it!!!" and directed the secondary to FIVE interceptions, 3 returned for TDs, against the reigning OPOY IN THE SUPER BOWL. Named to TWO team's Ring of Honors, even though he was only a Bronco for 4 years.
  5. True, but it wasn't just Deion's vehemence, but LaDainian's non-arguing that sold it for me... he seemed, nonverbally, to acknowledge that Deion was right in what he was saying, which I found interesting.
  6. I have seen a complete dearth of this being talked about: Pre-game, NFL Network, Deion Sanders was arguing with LaDainian Tomlinson about the impact of Spygate on the Patriots' historical standing when, suddenly, Deion said something I'd never heard. He said the Colts were stealing the defensive signals of the opposing team routinely, and while LaDainian said they weren't recorded so it wasn't illegal, Deion again hammered that they'd just tell Peyton what the defense was doing and they "did this for years." LaDainian didn't say a word against it, which just bolstered Deion's argument and comments. I feel like I imagined it because NO ONE said anything else about it either on TV or in writing, that I've found. Just thought it was really interesting. Yes it's not illegal without recording equipment, but Deion seemed to hint that something unsportsman or illegal was going on.
  7. Brady himself today, at the MVP presentation, said White should have been MVP. Having said that, I agree Brady deserved it. QB has the ball in his hands every play, he made correct decisions and calls to get them back into the game in the 3rd Q, and while White set records and kicked butt, he didn't blow the doors off with his playmaking ability or anything, his stats were compiled because Brady used him to get them back in the game. (Blount's fumble probably helped White's play time). So while White had better stats, Brady deserved the MVP. that said, I wouldn't have argued if White had won it. Regardless, as a Buc fan I'm delirious over the Falcons' loss and future SB hangover next year! Losing their OC, losing the SB, and already griping about contracts DURING SB week (!!!!) will all contribute to them not reaching the SB again IMO.
  8. This is exactly what I was thinking. You've basically got no choice because of Osweiler, and it almost has to be Gordon.
  9. Agree with going to GB might be the best destination for him; good 0-line, and great QB to give him 7-8 men in the box. Wow. No to the Giants, they have their young RB (Paul Perkins seemed to do better as the year went on), and I can't see him playing there, IMO. No to Houston, they have a good young RB. Tampa? As a Buc fan, I was immediately giddy at the thought... but then I thought some more, and I'm not sure. RB is such a fungible position, and this draft is chock full of them. NO WAY does anyone pay $18M for AP, think it all depends on how much he really wants, and how much he really wants to win over getting another major payday (i.e. Green Bay).
  10. I see it's standard scoring, but can you play 2 QBs? If not, then I'd keep Gordon. If you can play 2 QBs, Rodgers is far too valuable to let go IMO.
  11. Not to hijack this thread, because I do feel that Hester should be a HOFer eventually as the best Punt/Kickoff Returner of all time and leads both categories in all-time TDs.... but THANK YOU for mentioning this about Bettis. Yes he had a boatload of yards, but he wasn't a HOFer to me.
  12. I think that's a good deal; you figure Murray's touches will eventually be parsed out to Derrick Henry. Only pause I would have is the Colts don't seem proficient at actually surrounding Luck with talent at OL to protect him, but it's a gamble worth taking IMO.
  13. Yeah I wonder about Fournette. Tons of talent, but I suspect he'll need an offensive line to allow him to get going... i.e. he doesn't seem to have a lot of wiggle to avoid tacklers before he gets up a head of steam. He could be amazing, or he could suck, depending on where he lands, IMO. And yeah, Dalvin Cook is the whole package at RB. He would definitely blow up if Indy drafts him, although I'm secretly hoping my Buccaneers draft him... we'll see. We need a speedy WR to complement Evans, a couple of upgrades on our o-line (center and RT), and another edge rusher, so who knows.
  14. Obviously Fournette and Dalvin Cook come to mind. And yes, much will depend on where they get drafted, but assuming a player gets drafted into a good situation, who will you be looking to draft next year? I don't watch much college football, so while I'm doing research for next year, sometimes seeing is believing.
