  1. McCown’s winning percentage says nothing about his teaching abilities, which, by virtually all accounts, are highly regarded by all those who know him. Some of the best teachers in this league never even played in the NFL, so your argument makes no sense.

    Rotoworld: NFL's Best GM's 2018

    Tannenbaum and Terry Bradway (senior scout) making the personnel decisions for the Miami Dolphins delights me to a level I can't even describe. If only John Idzik could be hired as Buffalo GM. The description of Tannenbaum's failings was right on the mark, and it didn't even touch upon his Jets exploits, like the Tebow trade, the endless trading away of draft picks for no good reason, Santonio Holmes ("who's the smart guy who signed him!"), letting Danny Woodhead get plucked away from us by Belichick, the Sanchez extension, etc.
  3. This will be the first Hard Knocks season I watch since "Let's go eat a goddamn snack!"
  4. The idea this is going to go away and that Patricia will go on his merry way as Lions HC, in the post-Weinstein era, is nuts. The media is going to go ape-sh*t over this. Rest assured they'll dredge up the entire case, talking to the former prosecutors who handled the case, the police officers who responded, people who were employed at the hotel at the time and the victim herself if they can track her down. And guess what? That's what they should do. The victim backing out to avoid public scrutiny is entirely plausible. It's also plausible that the story was fiction. The point is that this news has created a whole lot of questions that no doubt will be pursued by a lot of interested parties.

    Josh Rosen: Huge A-Hole!

    The maturity/leadership questions are bullsh*t. The problem I have with him is that he has the elusiveness in the pocket of a tackling dummy. That and his slight build and injury history is a worrisome combination.
  6. Didn't know Terry Bradway was now senior scout for the Miam Dolphins. Thought he had just faded off into the sunset. I'm glad he ended up with a division rival. 😈

    I have to ask this question...

    Sanchez lacked the field vision, instincts, accuracy and ability to throw with anticipation that Darnold has clearly demonstrated.

    Nice Sammy D write-up

    Here's an other good analysis... Sam Darnold: Special in crunch time https://www.profootballfocus.com/news/draft-sam-darnold-special-in-crunch-time
  9. Rosen falls a little further and he’ll be in the Belichik zone.
  10. Arizona is gonna grab Rosen.
  11. DARNOLD!!!!!!!!!!!!! DO IT!!!!!!
  12. That would be a really dumb reason to pass on Darnold, but this is the Browns, so I guess that means it's true. The white board stuff is only because Darnold is lacking in experience. He's going to be 21 this year. Mayfield is going to be 23. By all accounts, Darnold is a sharp cookie. All Darnold needs is a little more time and the white board stuff won't matter at all.

    I'm Gonna get Killed for this But...

    Moving up to three in this draft was the best trade in franchise history. Now we just have to hope we get one of the three QBs who fulfills his potential, because after all the debate it really is just a crapshoot.

    First Round Falls in Our Lap

    Common sense would say you are correct. But Warner was just a mercenary QB for them for one season and he stunk. Replacing Eli is a whole different ballgame. Look at what happened last year when they benched him. Don't see them going down that road.

    First Round Falls in Our Lap

    I think the Giants would be nuts not to take Darnold if he falls to them. But I also think their situation is a little nuts, so I think it's entirely possible they pass on him. Here's why: 1. Giant ownership seems to be buying into the "Eli has three more productive years left" argument. After the embarrassing season they had, they want to make a playoff run in 2018-19. This is the part that's nuts. They should be rebuilding around a young QB, but hey, it's NY. 2. Darnold has a sky-high ceiling, but he needs refinement. He's 20 years old, doesn't have a lot of college starts under his belt and was generally considered the worst white-board guy among the Big Four. That makes him a bad fit for a win-now team. 3. The Giants know full well what the NY media is like. If they draft Darnold, they're going to be dealing with a giant media circus the first time Eli throws three interceptions in a game (and it won't take long for this to happen). It will be the Jets Tebow season multiplied by 100. Can't see them stepping into that. 4. Fielding a team with Barkley and Beckham is going to be too tempting for them to pass up, even with the drawback that they're going to have to devote a large chunk of their salary to a RB right out of the gate.
