  1. I'm not gonna go game by game, because it's so hard to predict what the teams will look like in month from now, let alone at the end of the season. But I think the Jets win on Sunday and I think the Packers may be in trouble this year. The thing that concerns me the most about them are their lines. The Falcons had horrible lines last year and we saw how they got dominated. You can have all the skill positions you want but if the QB doesn't have the time and the Dline gets dominated by other team's offensive lines it is going to be very difficult to win.
  2. Didn't wayne hunter say the same thing? How's his nfl career going since we got rid of him? Yea must be the media...nothing to do with how they played.
  3. So excited, especially since we have football to talk about instead of stoic complaining!
  4. If it's bad I can see Idzik just cutting bait and cutting him off the Practice Squad. It's pretty clear that Idzik isn't messing around anymore, you make the team look bad you gone.
  5. We have to resign Snacks before Richardson, he's a free agent after this year. He'll demand a large payday.
  6. Why we got $20 million rolling over from this year's cap? I'm assuming this is the main reason that Idzik left so much cap space available.
  7. Nothing like a good QB controversy to get Rich going!
  8. JJ Watt becomes the highest paid defensive player in the league. Curious to how everyone thinks this will affect us with Wilkerson. Also I didn't realize this but Snacks is a free agent after this season as well. Big money will likely be spent next year on our Dline. The Houston Texans and defensive end J.J. Watt have reached agreement on a new six-year extension that could pay him $100 million, league sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen. The deal, which affects the final two seasons of his current contract and keeps him with the Texans through the 2021 season, will pay Watt a guaranteed $51.8 million, the most for a defensive player in the history of the NFL. The $16.6 million annual value also is the highest for a defensive player. [+] Enlarge Scott Halleran/Getty ImagesJ.J. Watt's new deal will pay him a guaranteed $51.8 million, the most for a defensive player in the history of the NFL. Watt, the 11th selection in the 2011 draft and the 2012 defensive player of the year, has 36.5 sacks in his first three seasons. He said in August that he hoped he had earned a new contract. "With the new [collective bargaining agreement], I think one of the goals was to make guys earn their pay," Watt said. "No more big paydays up front. Make guys go out there and play, show that they've earned it. "So I think when a team gives a big contract after the third year, they're saying, 'Listen, we think you've earned this.' I don't know if [the Texans] feel that way or not, but I sure hope I've put in all the work, and I've put in everything I can do to hopefully earn it." Also in August, Texans owner Bob McNair said the team would redo Watt's deal early only if it made sense for the team. "It's going to be a big contract," McNair said at the time. "If we can do something with him that makes sense for the team to do it early, we'll certainly do it." The Texans picked up a fifth-year option on Watt's contract in May that locked him in at a salary of $6.969 million for the 2015 season. The sides had some preliminary discussions before the team picked up the option. The Houston Chronicle first reported the parties had reached agreement Monday night. More from ESPN.com J.J. Watt isn't replaceable. The Texans would not have risked going into the 2014 season -- or any other season, for that matter -- without arguably the league's best defensive player, Tania Ganguli writes. Story Watt, one of the best defensive linemen in the NFL and perhaps the best interior lineman in a 3-4 system, said last month that he wouldn't hold out to force the Texans to renegotiate his contract. "That would cause me to miss time with my teammates," Watt said. "Right now, I want to practice. I want to be out here with these young guys. I want to teach them things that I know. I want to better myself. And it hasn't really come to that. I want to be a Houston Texan. I want to play football, I want to be the best I can be. I can't do that by sitting on my couch. I want to come out here and help my team. "The business side of things is the business side. Right now I'm in football mode, so I worry about that. If the time comes that I need to get involved in the business side, I will." Both sides wanted Watt in Houston for as long as possible. "I sure would like to be," Watt said previously. "I love the fans that we have. I love the relationship we have. The city is so great. The way that they've treated myself and my family, I couldn't ask for a better place to play." "We want him here for a long time," McNair said.
  9. I just think he never had confidence in his hands. I remember this preseason against the bengals Geno threw him a pass at his head. He jumped to body catch it instead of catching with his hands. When he landed he got laid out and dropped the pass. If he caught with his hands he could have just braced for the hit. Its a subtle thing but it makes a huge difference in the NFL. To me being a hands catcher and precise route runner are the most important traits of a WR. They are more important to me than speed and height because they show an understanding of how to play the position. Stephen hill was fast and tall, but he never really knew how to play WR. It's like a pitcher who throws hard but doesn't know how to pitch. There is a big difference between a pitcher and thrower. Just like there is a difference between a big fast guy and a precise WR. Decker is a precise WR, Hill is a runner. I think that was why he got cut. The coaching staff realized he was never going to be precise and other than being a WR he brought nothing to the team...it wasn't enough
  10. Would never bet on Jets game but like this number. Rex kills all rookie QBs, Raiders are horrible on opening day in the last decade, and Rex has 1 loss opening day I believe (Ravens game) since he has been the Jets head coach. They'll be ready...and frankly they desperately need to win based on their schedule. But regardless I like the line.
  11. Isn't Rex undefeated or close to in his career of coaching against rookie QBs? I remember when Luck was a rookie we killed the Colts, and that was the year we went 6-10
  12. Ray Rice got lucky I guess. So that does that mean if he does it again he's kicked out of football?
  13. At what point is anyone like I need to put on this suit, my sunglasses, pose like I'm in playboy and take the picture of myself? Then on top of that feel the need to post it for the world to see.
  14. Ray Rice getting suspended two games is a joke for what he did. But comparing him to Gordon is unfair because the guy is a complete idiot and this was Rice's first run in with the law. Gordon however has been in trouble multiple times and has had a drug incident every year since he was in the 8th grade. Gordon was already suspended last year and this is essentially his third strike. At least Ray Rice was a man and had two press conferences and apologized. In his second press conference he seemed sincere in his apology and realized he made a humongous mistake. If he does it again then he should be treated as Gordon is being treated now. I'm not saying it is ok, but at least he manned up to it. Gordon on the otherhand has been a complete s**thead and continues to smoke and get DUIs. And I agree that fact that weed will cost this guy his season and probably millions of dollars is ridiculous, but to me it is more ridiculous that he can't give up smoking. Weed will be legal at some point, I'm sure, but to me this is an issue of Gordon being a complete idiot and not being a big enough adult to not break the rule of his employer. The NFL is still a private employer, so they can make their own rules. Just like the rest of us who maintain a job we have to follow the rules to keep our job no matter how stupid we might think the rule is.
  15. But it was second hand smoke!!!!! Yea ok. I'm glad he enjoys drugs more than making $10 million a year...seems like a solid life decision. This guys has not gone a full year without a drug incident since junior high and he still became the best WR in the NFL. Imagine if this guy could get his s**t together.
  16. Retirement may not be too far away for Gronk. I can see Gronk retiring before Brady
  17. I lol'd when I read this. And then I stopped, has anyone heard from goodson since he was cut? Maybe Idzik is one of those guys who tells his staffers to surprise him.
  18. DENVER -- Denver Broncos kicker Matt Prater will be suspended for the first four games of the regular season for a violation of the NFL's substance-abuse program, multiple team sources confirmed following the team's 18-17 preseason loss to the Houston Texans. Prater, who has been in the league's program since an August 2011 DUI arrest, acknowledged the suspension to the Broncos and confirmed the four games to The Denver Post on Saturday night before he left Sports Authority Field at Mile High. The suspension is alcohol-related, according to the newspaper. [+] Enlarge Justin Edmonds/Getty ImagesMatt Prater will be suspended for the first four games of the season and is not expected to appeal. A Broncos spokesman said the team would have no comment on the suspension "at this time.'' Prater and Broncos coach John Fox had a brief discussion in the locker room following the game. Prater played in Saturday night's game, making a 32-yard field goal and missing a 49-yard attempt. He has been subject to increased testing in the league's substance-abuse program since he was charged in August 2011 with driving under the influence and leaving the scene of a crash. At the time, Greenwood Village, Colorado, police said Prater's blood alcohol level was recorded at 0.142, or nearly twice Colorado's .08 limit. Team sources said Saturday that the latest test that prompted the suspension was conducted earlier this offseason. The team doesn't expect Prater to appeal the suspension. Prater made 25 of 26 field goal attempts (96.2 percent) last season, including an NFL-record 64-yarder in December against the Tennessee Titans. His career 82.9 percent success rate ranks first in franchise history, and he has made 51 of 54 career attempts in the fourth quarter or overtime. He also led the league in touchbacks on kickoffs in both 2012 and 2013. The Broncos will give the waiver wire a close look in the coming days and do have a rookie in training camp, Mitch Ewald. Ewald missed his only attempt Saturday night -- a 36-yarder that he pushed left. Prater's suspension is for four games, so, because of the Broncos' bye in Week 4, he wouldn't be eligible to return until the Monday before the Broncos face the New York Jets on Oct. 12 at MetLife Field. Prater would have to be formally reinstated by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. The Broncos also opened last season without one of their starters when linebacker Von Miller was suspended for six games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Considering the NFL has suspended Robert Mathis for taking a fertility drug and now suspended Prater for alcohol, doesn't their drug policy seem a little extreme?
  19. It was against Green Bay, on the field it was called that he got the first down and it was challenged and reversed. http://m.espn.go.com/general/story?storyId=5765350&city=newyork&src=desktop
  20. You're talking about the Green Bay game 4 years ago. It was 3rd and 7 and Westhoff told the ST unit that if they don't get the first down they were faking the punt. On 3rd down Sanchez got sacked and it became 4th and 15. Westhoff cancelled the fake punt but apparently Weatherford didn't get the message and went for it and almost got it anyway. Actually initially it was called a first down but was then reversed upon review. But that was a turning point for Weatherford and Westhoff's relationship because they exchanged words and blamed each other. They never got along for the rest of the season so when the season ended and he was a free agent the organization sided with Westhoff and let Weatherford go.
  21. Never been a fan of quigley. He always seems to have at least one punt a game and his avg distance is in the bottom half of the league. Lets find someone else
