  1. I didn't own mixon.....and I can say I probably watched all of 5 minutes of bengals games last year(they might have been on defense)...I know, I know I'm a terrible football fan but I need to know a couple of things 1 just how awful was their offensive line? and are the additions of glenn and price enough to help fix it? 2. is there a glimmer of hope? how did he run? did he show decent vision when given the opportunity to display it? did he flash enough to think that, if the offensive line improves, he can be something? I'm looking at this guy and thinking "the talent is supposed to be there....and theres a potential 3rd round price tag on him...and he has a good schedule against the run this year according to the SOS tool I use" basically I'm looking for someone to tell me hes not trent richardson anyone?
  2. joe mixon(insight needed from those who watched/followed him last year)

    good stuff....and ya....depending on your draft he could be anywhere from mid 2nd to early 3rd.....that's a pretty decent floor if it holds true I'm really looking at guys like him and cook in the 2nd....both have top 10 schedules against the run according to my tool......in fact 3 of the 2nd year backs have top 10 schedules against the run imo....fournette, cook and mixon....fournette scares me because of the reoccurring injury stuff....cooks was more of a freak thing
  3. Brandin Cooks traded to the Rams

    some stuff from tom curran about the trade...last paragraph most telling imo Cooks was good and, at 24, he’s bound to get better. But he wasn’t a seamless fit with the Patriots. He’s a vertical, downfield, outside-the-numbers receiver and the Patriots are not a vertical offense, they are a horizontal offense. Cooks was meant to be a complement for this team, a field-stretcher who would help take middle-of-the-field heat off of Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski. When Edelman got hurt, the Patriots’ 2017 offensive approach changed a bit. Nobody could replicate Edelman’s ability to uncover in short spaces so Brady was suddenly tasked with holding the ball a beat or two longer and throwing outside. And Brady took a ton of punishment in the early part of the season as a result. When more was asked of Cooks in terms of working the middle of the field, he and Brady had a hard time getting on the same wavelength. The Patriots’ offense is a nuanced one that relies on option routes and the ability to be almost telepathic. Cooks didn’t pick it up to Brady’s satisfaction and the frustration was sometimes apparent. It was a misfire to Cooks by Brady that led to the sideline dustup between Brady and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.
  4. Brandin Cooks traded to the Rams

    decent move here by the pats IMO 1 year left on his deal now they get to grab someone who they can control for years at less money(whether receiver or another position) I thought cooks started to come on late and looked like more of a fit....BUT...I remember after one of the last few regular season games troy brown said in a post game show he thought cooks just looked like he didn't fit and that he didn't think he would be back with the team.....looks like he was right I like Christian kirk a lot...and I know the pats are taking a hard look...he can also return kicks...although they did get Patterson for that....kirk reminds me a lot of golden tate...the pats aren't really in dire need of a slot guy, which kirk is, but I just really like him and think they can find a way to make it work
  5. Trey Burton

    burton was on everyones radar(at least those who really follow football) even last year and before that....hes always been an intriguing prospect...he sort of followed the jordan reed path going to florida as a qb and then moving around.....i think burton actually played as a qb where reed never actually did at florida...but they both moved at the same time where reed went right to TE and burton kind of did the TE/H-back sort of thing....but i think there are alot of similarities
  6. Jets Trade up

    that is alot but you also have to consider going from 3 to 15 is a big difference than only dropping to 6.......the colts might be looking at a couple of guys and feel comfortable at 6 that they can get 1 of em....at 15 its a different ball game
  7. Jets Trade up

    they aren't necessarily much smarter than us but you have to want that life...first you must be willing to work for free for awhile...then peanuts......and work ridiculous hours.....that's how a lot of those guys got there
  8. Jets Trade up

    if scouts/front offices were always right than the guys in kc and jax would have had lane Johnson instead of joeckel and fischer......or the rams would have had deandre instead of tavon austin bottom line is that these guys don't always know what theyre doing/do the smart thing what the jets certainly accomplished is driving up the price for any team that wants that #2.....the perception that this draft it strong and has 3-4 franchise qbs could easily be dismissed 4-5 years from now the jets are starved and desperate...that's what this looks like to me.....watching sanchez fizzle out and wasted picks on petty, geno and hackenberg have driven them to this it very well might turn out to be a great deal for them in time also.....if they miss on this one though it will hurt
  9. Jets Trade up

    "strong draft/weak draft" is just perception until you've had 5 years to look back and evaluate......which we can now do with that class....but the dolphins thought Jordan was going to be elite or else they wouldn't have made the move drafting and evaluating is an inexact science...or else guys like bell and Kelce wouldn't have gone in the 2nd and 3rd rounds of that draft we could argue about this all day.....but IMO the jets gave up too much and the colts got a score for a team that needs a bunch of talent infused into it
  10. Jets Trade up

    seems fair for mike redd btw...you see the PFT article about the fins trading from 12 to 3 in 2013 for dion Jordan? all they gave up was the 42nd pick
  11. Jets Trade up

    havent analyzed the griffin deal....would need the particulars and of course you dont know ahead of time what the picks are going to turn out as...im just telling you what they did turn out as....it didnt turn out to be anything GREAT for cleveland.....especially anything compared to what indy does know they are going to get..... i think there are a bunch of guys at qb and no one is really seperating themselves....thus no one is really willing to go crazy....but i dunno.....i do think rosen is the most ready and has the best floor.....
  12. Jets Trade up

    under the 2018 trade value chart the colts came out ahead +810 if we go with the assumption that next years jets 2nd rounder is a top 10 in the round now lets use the updated chart(even though the wentz trade took place 2 years ago) to see how that deal went....pick 2 overall is worth 2600....pick 8 is worth 1400......thats a 1200 point difference....the 12th pick cleveland got in the 2017 first round is valued at 1200 today...making up the difference and basically putting us at 0 now.....a top 10 pick in the 3rd round is about 240 points and a top 10 pick in the 4th is worth about 80-82 points.......that pick cleveland is getting from philly in this years 2nd is the last pick in the round valued at 270....putting clevelands value at around +592 or so...give or take a few....... now if somehow the jets turn it around quick and that next years 2nd round pick lowers the value we figured in they will still come out ahead better than cleveland did in the wentz trade
  13. Jets Trade up

    its not cheap....its a good deal for the colts pick 3 is worth 2200 on the trade value chart.....pick 6 is worth 1600...37 is worth 510 and 49 is worth 410...for the sake of argument im going to assume the jets 2nd rounder next year is in the top 10 of the round making that worth at least 500 points other teams may have been more desperate and paid more in years prior...but its a good deal for the colts and a no brainer for a team that needs to add alot of talent to its roster
  14. Jets Trade up

    just a great deal for indy....you could take one of those 2nd rounders out of it and its still a great deal.....nice work by ballard
  15. Allen Robinson to sign with da' Bears

    im kind of high on trubisky as an upside backup qb next year....was before this signing.....this sort of helps me feel a bit more comfortable in that....plus i think this points to them drafting nelson if hes available...which will also help that offense
  16. Tyrod Taylor traded to Cleveland

    have to agree with this
  17. Cleveland trades Danny Shelton to Patriots

    me likey sheltons ankles are probably bigger than my thighs.....guy is like yokozuna
  18. Is Tom Brady the GOAT of all sports?

    i always seem to forget the cowboys were pretty good in the early 80s and late 70s.....a little before my time...but ya ur right
  19. Bill Belichick to retire

    gronk has been struggling with back problems since well before his NFL career...its basically the reason he slid into the 2nd...and hes been all types of banged up since he got here..... of course the word around is he basically hasn't spent a dime of his actual nfl salary money...that he lives of endorsements and appearance fees....but no one really knows.....it really would be nothing for this guy to walk out and still earn a healthy buck.....im sure the wrestling company would be glad to have him around for awhile....guy will always be in demand for club appearances and tv appearances but I agree...I think he sticks around....but its got to be increasingly tough to get through the grind and always being hurt doing it.....but he did link up with guerrero recently and was available save for that suspension....
  20. Is Tom Brady the GOAT of all sports?

    49ers/cowboys was the steve young era though was it not? it wasn't montana and the cowboys slugging it out was it? speaking of steve young...didn't that guy win a SB and make the HOF? how come that isn't some proof of a "system" and held against montana? but somehow jimmy g winning a couple of game is ...and cassel winning some games, with a team brady was within a play of going 19-0 with, is? did montana ever have to worry about his starting TE or receiver going out in the 1st half of an NFC title game or superbowl after taking a hit to the helmet? I'm not knocking joe at all...just showing if you want to make arguments about eras, or whatever, you can really go tit for tat
  21. Is Tom Brady the GOAT of all sports?

    nah...i think everyone is entitled to their opinion but if you are going to go tit for tat on advantages...i think it can be done both ways....so those things really cancel each other out imo
  22. Is Tom Brady the GOAT of all sports?

    every time you can point out some advantage brady has that montana didn't have I can easily play tit for tat and do the same.....it makes no difference.....they cancel each out IMO
  23. Is Tom Brady the GOAT of all sports?

    so lemme get this straight....montana hasn't played a down of football since like 94 or 95? was surpassed....yet somehow has now leapfrogged back in front of a guy that just threw for 505 yards 3 tds and no picks? seems logical.....either that or the guy is trying to stir a pot
  24. Is Tom Brady the GOAT of all sports?

    cool....lol
  25. Patricia to the Lions, McDaniels to the Colts

    last night there was a picture circulating locally of kraft and belichick dining together at a restaurant(which I frequent) adjacent to the stadium....now I cant be certain it wasn't an older pic....but looked legit to me......what that means nobody knows why wouldn't belichick let mcdaniels walk? hes 41 now and hes had more experience...hes prob as ready as he will ever be for a HC job.....I don't think bill would ever honestly stand in someones way if he felt they were ready....that was his problem before...he didn't think he was ready.......... so I don't see the mcdaniels situation as kraft getting in the way of a belichick decision......at all...in fact...I think you are making that something you want it to be....its an assistant getting a blessing for a HC gig and the owner sweetning the pot for that guy to stay......if mcdaniels had said "i don't want a HC job Id rather stay here" all along that belichick would force him out the door and demand he take a HC gig? I don't think so......this is NOT a kraft intervening situation......for the time being mcdaniels remains in his role we still don't know that jimmy g was a kraft move......so at best you have one possible scenario of kraft getting in the way....but still nothing tangible.......and if belichick had to be told to move jimmy g than id say his time is just about up here anyway......did you not see what tom did on sunday? I'm not really concerned....most of this is icing on very wonderful cake.....the only people who want to be concerned are those who want it all to come crashing down.......eventually it will die out.....everything ends badly otherwise it wouldn't end right? sure id like to see sustained excellence but I'm not counting on it...... until further notice the pats are still amongst SB favorites for next year....that SHOULD concern everyone else
