  1. Saints are the new Colts. Brees is the new Manning (Peyton, obviously). Great in the regular season, choke in the playoffs,
  2. In the last 10 years the #11 pick has mainly been OT or CB / DB. One NT (Dontari Poe) and one DE (some guy named Watt) are the exceptions.
  3. Has any game ever ended 0-0 before? Could be a first!
  4. And we all know how useless and inaccurate those stormtroopers are ...
  5. Stephen Hill First game - 5 catches, 89 yards, 17.8 average, 2 TDs Average for next 22 games - 1.8 catches, 23 yards, 12.6 average, 0.09 TDs
  6. You'd better be careful, posting the word "cracker" after the whole AB thread.
  7. The wine looks great on the website, when it turns up at your door, and while sat on your wine rack / in your cupboard. You get really excited about how great it's going to be. All the reviews rave about it. You can't wait. The excitement builds. Finally you open it and pour, it smells great, looks the part. You feel it's pretty good for the first few mouthfuls, and you're waiting for the big pay off. Then you realize it actually tastes like crap and you've got 15 more bottles of the stuff to get through.
  8. Typical that the Patsies find a way to trade ANOTHER TEAM'S draft picks for the players they want.
  9. Plus we have a plethora of RB and TE options that can line up in the slot. And the NE guy we picked up too.
  10. 10 against Miami's putrid O Line ... where are the other 2 coming from?
  11. Sad to see Burnett gone. Maybe a PS candidate??
  12. Based on this, we should re-hire Macc ... ... so we can fire him again - firing him once wasn't enough! 🤬
  13. It's the time of year, and it's all teams. On NFL.com today: How RG3 reckons the Ravens offense will surprise opponents How Will Hernandez is key to Giants improvement How the Bengals are all buying in to their new coach ... and so on. Ignore it if you don't like it; find another hobby till September because there'll be little else. Other than arrests and injuries, which no-one wants.
  14. Offset language is usually a sticking point ... so if the team cuts the player and he then signs elsewhere, the team that drafted him wants to be able offset the new deal against their original deal. The player, naturally, wants to be paid in full for both.
  15. I'm perfectly happy for the Browns to be getting the media attention and all the plaudits from the writers. The talking up of a team in the off season as contenders does add a bit of expectation / pressure when the pads go on, if that goes elsewhere and leaves our team alone to quietly go about their business, so much the better. I reckon the Ravens may also suffer a bit of this too, and if they start off slow there'll be a lot of chatter about the league having "figured them out", which can create some negativity around the team.
  16. The coaching last year did likely set back the stats for both the RBs; once Crowell went down they just tried to use McGuire / Cannon in the same way as Crowell it seemed, despite them being different types of back. The resigning of Powell does lead me to believe that it's not a simple either / or between McGuire and Cannon; if he's healthy he gives the option to cut both.
  17. Fans react a lot to first impressions. They stick in the memory and are brought up ad nauseum. Cannon has a fumbling problem ... based on first impressions. Joe McKnight threw up in one of his first practices and it was still being mentioned years later that he was unfit, not prepared to work etc. No logic for it, these things just stick in the memory. (So glad it didn't happen on Darnold when his first career pass was a pick-6). I guess my concern on Cannon then is, if he's mainly a ST player but can't return kicks / punts ... can we afford a roster spot for a guy who is only a gunner on punt returns? Isn't there a guy out there who can be a gunner AND offer something more, either at RB, WR, KR, PR etc. Peake is also a good gunner, but doesn't offer much beyond that. As one trick ponies go, it's not the most compelling trick to have.
  18. 3 fumbles in preseason (1 lost, Game 3 vs NYG) None in regular season, but that may be because they stopped having him return punts? He averaged 3 yards per carry and 8.5 yards per catch in the regular season, with 1 TD.
  19. Wesco strikes me as the sort of guy who you'll occasionally throw to out of a goal-line offense set ... everyone expects him to be an extra blocker and suddenly he's spiking the ball and the PAT Team are heading onto the field.
  20. When did he even get hurt? There's no mention of this in the article, only that he was held out of mini camp due to injury.
