  1. So he needs 3 MVP awards before being elite?
  2. Exactly right. He spends the entirety of the game dinking and dunking, with hopes of setting the defense up for a big play - but if those big plays are missed, the offense isn't scoring. It's like a boxer who spends the majority of 10 rounds getting beat up, waiting for his opportunity to counter-punch to deliver a knockout blow. Sure, that's a strategy, but if you swing and miss, you're going to lose the fight on points 10 times out of 10.
  3. I've been traveling and out of action, so excuse me if this has been discussed already. But I just rewatched every Sam Darnold completion from week 1 to see if it was as bad as I remember, from a schematic standpoint, and my god, I can't believe this is what "offensive genius" Adam Gase has drawn up for today's NFL. A breakdown of Sam's 28 completions: Completions: Behind the line of scrimmage: 8 Within 0-5 yards of the line of scrimmage: 16 Between 5-10 yards of the line of scrimmage: 2 Longer than 10 yards: 2 (let the record show, the two longest completions were throw that traveled 11 yards past the line of scrimmage). I know the protection sucks and all that, but how about drawing up some rollouts or getting Sam on the move to buy receivers time to get downfield? Jeremy Bates looks like Bill Walsh when comparing his offense to Gase's, and Jeremy Bates is a granola eating loser who is rightfully out of the NFL. I know it's early, but I have exactly zero faith in Gase and I've seen no evidence that he's an offensive guru who will get the best out of Darnold. I don't care that he's playing with backup QBs. His week one game plan blew donkey balls, and the tape below proves that.
  4. True, but Slater played ~70% of his team's special teams snaps to Cannon's 30%. So while I appreciate the comparison and understand your point, I'm not sure it's an apples to apples comparison. Cannon is good at one specific niche within the niche that is special teams: and that is being a gunner. He doesn't return kicks or punts, which limits his contributions. If he was on the field for the majority of the ST snaps, I'd understand his place on the roster....but to be a crappy RB and only be on the field for 30% of ST plays seems like a bad use of a roster spot.
  5. I'm not really sure why you felt the need to state the number of special teams snaps the team had, when Trenton Cannon was on the field for 151 of those snaps. Let's not pretend that he's not replaceable simply because of his ability to run in a straight line fast.
  6. https://nflstream.io/ -- this is the best site for streaming. Reliable, free, and has tons of sports.
  7. This is around the time of the year when kicking competitions are won/lost, so we should see a good amount of talent shaking free in the next week or so. With that being said, Maccagnan should still be whipped in the nuts w/ a car antenna for letting Meyers walk in FA.
  8. The main takeaway I took from this article is that the Cardinals sixth round DT/DE has been way more productive than our #3 overall pick, Leonard Williams.
  9. Agreed. I understand what the market rate is for shleps like Nick Foles/Dak Prescott....But I'd rather have Brooks Bollinger at $1.5mm/year than either of those guys at $22.5mm/year, let alone the $30mm that Prescott turned down.
  10. Of course I am not, which is why I said "I wouldn't" and not "I will not." But thank you for reminding me that I am not, in fact, Jerry Jones.
  11. I wouldn't pay Dak $20 million/year, and yes, I am serious.
  12. There's a lag between when this is filmed and when it's published. Mo wasn't suspended at the time of filming.
