    I’d say it’s unlikely he ever plays in the NFL again


    Ya, that's not how the NFL works.  They're all about letting PoS play again...err...second chances. 


    PLEASE NOTE: This is just a generalization about the NFL and how they've handle prized player's indiscretions in the past, and is not currently directed at Watson specifically.  

  2. Rotowhatever:



    Lawyer Tony Buzbee alleged that Deshaun Watson's misconduct happened "as recently as this month." 


    Watson is now facing seven confirmed lawsuits with five more expected to be filed shortly and another 10 women reportedly prepared to allege sexual misconduct during massage sessions. The Texans have yet to comment while the league continues to investigate these matters. As it stands, there are still "several" NFL teams — Panthers, Eagles, Jets, Dolphins, 49ers, and Broncos — that remain "extremely interested" in acquiring Watson. This case will likely extend throughout the spring.


    Still withholding judgement, but honestly not sure what to think if even more suits are filed. 


    Anyone seen that damn bear?  We might need some PSAs here.

    I'll be called a fair-weather fan, but whatever.  I'm not going to be paying much attention to the Bears this season or for the foreseeable future.  Not until they get competent management and field a team worth watching.


    At least with Trubisky there were some chances of him making some athletic plays and getting the ball downfield to A-Rob.  Now the Red Rocket is just going to get pummeled.  Sucks for guys like Kmet and Montgomery, who could have grown up a lot this coming year.


    If that's fair-weather, the entire city of Chicago is embracing it.  I keep telling my friends the Dolphins have young talent, cap space, and draft capital.



  4. Rotoworld (or whatever its called now):



    Four new lawsuits alleging sexual misconduct have been filed against Deshaun Watson.


    The Houston Chronicle reported the new batch of suits filed by women who claim Watson engaged in misconduct during massage sessions. One of the new lawsuits alleges that Watson assaulted the same massage therapist twice in fall 2020. Six of the lawsuits accuse Watson of inappropriately touching women with his penis. He allegedly resisted wearing towels to cover his naked body during the massage sessions. The NFL has said it is investigating the allegations made against Watson, who is seeking a trade out of Houston. The league has not punished players based on civil lawsuits. 


    Just gonna say, that's a lot of smoke...

    What is going on in Chicago? Pace & Nagy are dead men walking, why rebuild now?? 


    They're in cap hell.  Unsurprisingly they won't get a deal done with ARob so instead of a manageable number they're stuck having to pay the $28 mil they don't have for ARob and Dalt.  That means cutting or moving where they can regardless of talent. 


    It's not a rebuild, it's piss poor management.

    As a Packer fan: :D


    $10 million...


    It's bridge QB money.  Amount doesn't bother, the signing is not well liked though.  They'll draft a project after the 1st round and wing it this year, probably reset the GM/coach after the season and make another push for Wilson when the cap is more friendly and it won't cost Seattle so much to trade him. 

  7. This no longer a thing or is it just me?  Does a setting need to be changed somewhere that I haven't found?  Haven't been receiving emails when someone PMs me for a few weeks now and was previously.  Always found it pretty valuable for the BoTH leagues here.

    So if not Watson, what's the solution?  Darnold?  Foles?  Draft a QB?  


    I hated the Trubisky pick and what it took to get him, but I recognize that he was able to thrive a bit in the system.  


    The franchise is stuck in neutral, that's the problem.  Complete overhaul is needed.  But if they're not going to do that, I'd at least want a mobile/athletic QB.


    There may well be no correct answer to fix the problem at this time, but there are wrong ones.  With the state of things as they are Mitch is a wrong one.  He's already had his shot and failed, move on to something else or tank with what you have.  :shrug:

    If they don't land Watson, what else is there?  I'd rather have someone with some upside that knows the system.  Surround that guy with talent on the skill position side and a good OL and he could be decent.  Foles is fools' gold.  Darnold would be only a slight upgrade over Trubisky and doesn't know the system.  :shrug:  


    No offense but c'mon man that's like every NFL teams offensive goals, talent and line.  I can do this charade for Foles too, lets put some talent around him and give him a good OL and he can bring you a SB ring just like he did in Philly.  See?  It's a pipe dream.  Mitch doesn't work in this system, no matter what they do here he won't be good as long as it is in place.

  10. Right on queue too...who the hell does this? Why the hell would you do that? 



    Bears signed K Cairo Santos to a five-year, $16 million contract. 


    As Over The Cap pointed out on Twitter, 29-year-old Santos has been cut five times since 2018. To say it's an aggressive move would be putting it mildly. The Bears were simply overjoyed by Santos' competent 2020 after years in the kicker wilderness. Santos converted 93.8 percent of his 2020 field goal tries, boosting his career mark to 83.1. Santos is not called on very often from 50-plus yards, making him an extra unlikely recipient of this kind of contract. There's a chance this deal could quickly become an albatross. 


  11. Ok I'm local in Chicago and simply put, (the really bad word) that.  Trubisky is utter dog manure and would rather suffer another year of Foles failing due to his lack of arm talent rather then watch Mitch fail due to sheer stupidity.  It's just not going to happen for him here.   


    Oh and I'm not even a fan.  All my local friends will pretty much burn down Halas Hall if Pace resigns him.  You cannot bring back all 3 of the failing components of this franchise (Mitch, Pacy, Nagy) for the last 4 years, just simply can't.  It would be one hell of a (the really bad word) you to the fanbase, and honestly don't think the fans will tolerate it anymore.  Bulls, Hawks, Sox all ascending and the Cubs will always be beloved as long as they play in Wrigley.  Why spend money/time on a team with one of the manuretiest stadiums in the league, that refuses to make any changes to any management despite 22 years of incompetence, and who's best QB historically is a guy who played possibly before their grandfather was even born. 


    If they did that Halas will burn, and at this point it would be the only goddamn riot I've ever supported.    


    (Yes, the hyperbole is thick I know...but hard not to listening to the locals though.)

  12. I'm not local so I can't say confidently.  Personally I think he's a JAG, does well against bad teams gets absolutely swallowed by good D's.  Did well catching out of the backfield last year but that may be more due to the lack of pass catching bodies on the field.  Hes not a game changer in my view. :2cents:

    Agree totally. That being said I'd much rather have Etienne or Harris over Jones at this point. 


    Well luckily it's not either hopefully management is smart enough to realize that.  They have burned me before though.  :unsure:

    The Dolphins can get Etienne or Najee Harris at 18. Why would they overpay for Aaron Jones? 


    Running backs are not worth 1st round picks.  They're also not worth the money Jones is probably looking for. 


    Churn and burn them.

    Not that it moves the needle much, but two things: one, you forgot Goff (as part of the Stafford move), and Mariota's contract is going to prove to be too cumbersome for him to move, I'm guessing.


    But yeah, it's going to be a busy off-season for QB movement and then once the draft happens, there are a handful of legit, day-one starters in this draft class.


    Didn't mention Goff cause he wasn't rumored available (that I'm aware of) or supposedly dangled in those talks, he was just part of the Stafford deal (and possibly being benched for an UDFA anyways, ugh).  Personally don't think Mariota's contract is a problem at all.  Even if it reaches all incentives (2-3 mil worth is doubtful to achieve) it's still reasonable and with it being the final year I'm sure it could be easily restructured as part of an extension to compensate if a team desired to. 


    Regardless point was I don't think it'll be a busy off season for the position as the rumor mill would like.  Wilson is not getting moved despite the talking heads speculation specially when that would weaken the market for themselves with Watson already out there.  Though I hate to say it, Watson is the better target due to his age and if he's dealt I expect the couple of teams that remain with the possible capital to deal will balk once they see the price tag.   


    As always, just my :2cents:

  16. I mean its great rumor bait for the offseason, but so far we've had Stafford, Watson, Donald, Wentz, Carr, Mariota, Rodgers, and Garoppolo in rumors to go along with Wilson and implications of Tua and Bridgewater being available as parts in these trade rumors.  I mean that's a lot.  Stafford and Wentz are obviously done, and I can see backup Mariota getting moved, but I'd be surprised if there's two more trades done for those remaining that were mentioned (Watson, Wilson, Donald, Carr, Rodgers, Garoppolo, Tua, Bridgewater).  Watson probably has the best chance out of that list but think that chance is a bit smaller then its current perception.  Four + starting QB trades would be simply unprecedented.
