  1. QB USC Sam Darnold's play at Rose bowl

    Looking forward to winning a meaningless week 17 game next season and missing out on Darnold because of it
  2. Are we watching the same game? Feet were clearly in bounds, only question was if he bobbled it which I don't think he did.
  3. Then don't you think maybe they should've, I don't know, not agreed to give him that power in the CBA? Like the 2nd Circuit has already said? Instead of continuing to waste the taxpayers money trying to get out of a term of the agreement that they negotiated for months?
  4. I understand your point, but couldn't it be said that as the league continues to be more and more pass friendly the value of players with this skillset has risen, along with their draft stock? Knowing what we know about how these types of players have transitioned and been hugely successful in today's NFL, it's definitely quite possible the guys listed would have been graded and selected higher had they come out of college today as opposed to a few years ago.
  5. By 3 to 13 pounds, with the benefit of multiple years in a professional strength and conditioning program. Lee ran a 4.47 at 232 pounds, he can very easily tack on a few more pounds of muscle without losing his athletic ability.
  6. First link I went to: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000641197/article/daniel-jeremiahs-top-50-prospects-for-2016-nfl-draft Ranked 11, 8, 25, and 17 on all four draft guys' big boards.
  7. This. I can't see the Supreme Court granting cert on this nonsense. I'd at least hope they'd have more important cases to hear with their time.
  8. Perhaps weighted is the wrong term, more like non-adjusted for great disparities in volume. DYAR seems like a stat which does make that adjustment and he ranks top 10 in that. Regardless, I have a hard time believing that there's many receivers out there that, substituted for Marshall, would make this offense more efficient.
  9. Understood, just seems to me that DVOA by itself isn't the best indicator at certain positions without adjusting for volume, roles, etc.
  10. Yeah I get it. Still don't get why you've been using DVOA to bash Marshall. It's clearly weighted against players who receive a larger volume of targets or snaps (Tyler Lockett is number 2, Rishard Matthews is 3, etc.). DYAR seems like a much more accurate portrayal of value, though obviously not perfect, and Marshall ranks 10th in that category. So I might as well ask again, are you so negative on Marshall solely based on DVOA and if not what are the other factors.
  11. Enlightening. The team/unit numbers seem a much better indicator than the individual ones, especially WR. I don't know how anyone can honestly say that there's 5 receivers in the league more valuable than beckham, let alone 23.
  12. Don't understand your reliance on these numbers. Are there 23 WRs better than Odell Beckham? 37 receivers better than both Deandre Hopkins and Julio Jones? Those guys are all top 5 at the position, the idea that theres that many people more valuable than them on a per play basis is crazy. You'd really take Seth Roberts or Marquess Wilson over Brandon Marshall? I guess I'm just struggling to understand why you aren't a fan of Marshall; are you basing it on DVOA?
  13. Love their train of thought on this. Most of the time when a team tries to throw a game they don't do it by calling flea flickers and double reverses, continuously going for it on 4th down, or keeping their golden boy QB in the game to get constantly chased around by 300 lb. defensive linemen (when they would have been completely justified in sitting him on the bench). But what do I know, Bellichick is the genius here so I'm not going to question his game-throwing strategies. After all, it did work out in the end.
