  1. A better deal would be hiring Eli to keep Dowell Loggains tied up in his basement next season...
  2. Historical? Yes. Iconic and landscape altering? No.
  3. I think where we're not seeing it the same is on what defines a HOF career. Statistically I agree with you and @slimjasi that Namath was marginal as a HOF level player. I respect your views. But try to think about living in the 60's before the AFL-NFL merger was completed. You just had the old school Packers demolish the Chiefs and Raiders in SB I and II. The country's falling apart over Vietnam, MLK, RFK. etc. You have this old school team the Giants playing in the same town sucking out all the oxygen (do you think the network would have ever cut away from a Giants game in progress to show a movie about some little Swiss girl?). And here comes Namath. Without him, IMO the AFL would have continued to be seen like a glorified USFL with the merger based more on trying to control the cost of signing players vs. a true merger of equals. I guess I just feel some of the historical things in his particular case are special...
  4. These Eli vs. Namath type comparisons grow old. It keeps going back to the same basic metric: on field statistics. I think it's generational. People now are wired to think about numbers and statistics because it's easier to grasp. What Namath did literally changed the product we watch today. It was historically significant. He's in the HOF as much for that as he is for wagging his finger in Miami that afternoon...
  5. One theory I see is Wentz (11) to Anderson (11) which makes sense since I know Robby wants to be the first NFL player to share a uniform number with a teammate...
  6. Thomas Hennessy tied for the NFL lead in tackles among long snappers with four. So there's that...
  7. I'd like to see JD resign Jenkins. He may not be an elite Edge but sometimes you have to reward your better players with a 2nd contract. And I don't fear he's going to pull a "Wilkerson" before the ink is dry...
  8. Good point. Some guys can coach technique and draw Xs and Os on a blackboard but can't manage the flow of a game and make adjustments.
  9. We need Demaryius Thomas from 5-6 years ago..
  10. If they draft another DL I would get my pilot's license...
  11. Woody and CJ need to get going having SD14 products pipelined thru Johnson and Johnson so Darnold can remain here long term working well below market...
  12. Brady, Edelman, Hollywood Henderson, Lyle Alzado, Steve Grogan, Ben Davidson, The Smurfs, Marino, Jason Taylor I thought LT was great even though I hated the Giants...
  13. I get the $18-20 million talk, but I'm trying to think of who has a worse WR corp than we do right now. Would seem to me, based on the competition, that Cooper would be a fit here and maybe the price won't be as crazy as everyone thinks...
  14. What is your position on resigning Jenkins?
  15. They went to 3 consecutive SBs after Kraft overruled him, maybe Kraft was the brains behind it after all. Fair point. Also they got Brady way below market due to the TB12 scam so it gave them alot of salary cap room keeping him over Garoppolo
  16. The highest certainty I have is that Belichick is done with Brady. Think he knew it years ago with Jimmy G and Kraft overruled him...
  17. Actually I could see him in Carolina if he doesn't retire. New Wall St Billionaire owner looking to make a splash...
  18. I wonder if a QB needy team like the Chargers or maybe the Panthers/Raiders might take a shot on a guy like Mariota via trade vs. looking to draft one?
  19. All the great ones, Montana, Favre, Namath, Unitas, etc. have a hard time admitting they're done. Wouldn't surprise me in the least to see Brady in a different uniform next year (Panthers? Bucs? Raiders?)
  20. Agree with most everyone that Gase's ego won't allow him to bring in a guy like Martz or Callahan. The guy who ultimately is going to help with Gase has to be Sam. No doubt Manning's success in Denver was aided by his ability to change plays and tempo on the fly. If Sam gets to that same mental level, I bet he'll be very successful with Gase.
  21. If Gase were honest with himself, he needs a new OC instead of a glorified clipboard holder. There's more to running an offense than just drawing up plays. His biggest weakness to me so far is in his play calling and in game adjustments. Gase could be really good at x's and o's and coaching technique, but still suck at play calling (which is why maybe Peyton Manning kept him from being exposed)
  22. I kinda agree with you here although what Garrett did to him on MNF was scary...
  23. +100 Is anybody looking at the Chiefs? They have an entire stable of talented WR's and didn't slow down at all when Tyreek Hill was out. There is no either/or here especially with what we hope is a franchise QB under center. #Weaponz
