  1. Becton still looks like he's a bad weekend away from being 400 pounds. I know he's naturally a big dude, but working out and not eating like you're prepping for a season of "My 600-LB Life" is not that hard.
  2. Excuse my French, but who the f*ck is DJ and who still reads the Daily News?
  3. Optics matter. Becton is a typical 23 year old snowflake who get wildly offended because people have the audacity to hold him accountable for how he shows up to work. His job is arguably the most important on the field: protecting the blindside of your franchise QB from killers. And how did he show up to work last year? Fat and unmotivated. He was a human turnstile in training camp and was beat by a drum multiple times a day by Carl Lawson. He is unreliable, injury prone, and untrustworthy. Fool me once, shame on you - fool me twice, shame on me. The only two things I care about are availability and trustworthiness and Becton has done nothing to earn either of those things. He has no right to protect the QB's blindside. Get him off this roster for all I care and use a day two pick on an OT.
  4. Yes, absolutely. I love trading high draft picks for players with big contracts seven years after refusing to use a low draft pick on the same player who would have cost us the league minimum in salary.
  5. Fantastic write up, as usual. Great job, KRL and thank you!
  6. You don't trade for a four-win quarterback.
  7. Davonta Smith is a young, faster, more athletic version of Antonio Brown and is going to catch billion passes a year.
  8. Yes, god designed an offense that refuses to throw the ball past the line of scrimmage.
  9. If Kirk was an overweight 68 year-old man with diabetes, instead of a 32 year-old professional athlete in perfect health, I'd be impressed by his statement.
  10. You seriously think so? I really don't see why this is a big issue.
  11. A fair question to ask is, who gives a sh*t? The dude wasn't allowed to work, likely because he was contagious and they didn't want to risk the entire team getting sick. And being bored and alone, he decided to go bowling. Personally, I would have stayed home and cranked a few out, but to each their own I suppose. These writers need to get a life.
  12. All three are softer than Alize with a chaser.
  13. So he needs 3 MVP awards before being elite?
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. https://nflstream.io/ -- this is the best site for streaming. Reliable, free, and has tons of sports.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
