  1. Not sure if you get it. You are costing us cap space with these moves. Trading Quinnen Williams accelerates his bonus and we would be on the hook for like $16.5M for 2020, to save his like $4M in salary. Clearing Bell's salary probably costs us cap, but I am not sure if his guarantees are salary/roster bonus (which will net less in a deal) or signing bonus which will eat 2020 cap. Who is Beach? Beachum? You aren't going to save salary there because 1. you can't cut someone that isn't under contract, and 2. whatever below average LT you sign is going to cost considerably more.
  2. I think the key to much of this is how these guys get along. Do they respect one another? Do they speak the same language? Can the coach understand what it takes to make the QB thrive? Some QBs will never truly thrive. <cough><cough> Mark Sanchez. Some need more specific help than others, but the relationship is often more important than the plays.
  3. To be fair, you could argue that he made the guys he lost too. Andre Roberts was in the league a long time before Boyer got him to a pro bowl and the kicker was on the street last August.
  4. Those moves aren't clearing salary. They are probably raising it. Bell, Williams and Adams all had bonuses that would accelerate if you move them. It's going to cost money in the short term.
  5. It is a nice fantasy. Not the same as I had when I was 13, but I digress. The one thing I will say is that Ozzie Newsome has already cemented himself as one of the greats at least twice. I doubt he could be bothered to do it again.
  6. This mythical President of Football Operations position is just a way for you guys to find a position to bring that fat ******* carpetbagger back. Never mind that he rubber stamped Tannenbaum, Sparano for OC, and Todd Bowles. It is a position only taken by guys to old and past it to remain as coach or GM. No thank you. Pick one of those that isn't an idiot and do away with the middle man.
  7. Ozzie Newsome is still under contract with the Ravens. I believe that Bisciotti called him the highest paid consultant in the NFL. He still sat at the head of the table in the draft room with DeCosta on his right. They are buds. The whole step down thing was because Ozzie was getting older and wanted to wind down and they didn't want DeCosta to get poached. Can't see why Ozzie would taint his legacy, and even the interview would taint him.
  8. I have always liked Jordan Jenkins. I got on the pick early in his career because of his lack of speed, but physically he has generally been fine and his measurables aren't actually bad. Yesterday though. Yeesh. He could not even sniff setting an edge against Jackson. I get that is a tough job, but he looked like an old lady with knee braces on trotting after Jackson. Even worse was the offsides/personal foul combo which I think got him benched. Burgess was too small to hold up on the edge, Jenkins too slow.
  9. False. The ball came loose and he tried to pin it against his leg. That isn't possession. It spit out when he rolled over, but he didn't have that ball. I will give you the ball hitting the blocker on the punt and the interference with Anderson. Turning point? I think the turning point was going 3 and out and then having the ball fed to us on the first drive. The Smith play isn't so much a fault thing, as a same page thing. FWIW, Smith is the guy that blocked the guy into getting hit with the punt. He may have value if he shows on specials. I don't think he is the most natural receiver, but he looked like he might belong out there.
  10. I get saying that their WRs aren't super great, but TE? Andrews and Hurst were both top TEs coming out in 2018. Hollywood was the first WR taken this year and I took Boykin in the same slot for the Ravens 3rd in the JN mock. I am not a huge fan of Snead or Roberts, but Snead's numbers in NO shouldn't be discounted by a guy who loves to tout Robby Anderson. Their skill position players are pretty good, counting Ingram and Tottenville Pirate Gus Edwards.
  11. I just think that means double digits isn't that big of a deal. My point was just that close losses were meaningless. The Jets had plenty of opportunities to make the score closer that would have given them less of a chance to win. I am happier this way... rephrase: I am slightly less miserable this way.
  12. Why do they have to be wrong? Jackson was always a high ceiling, low floor guy. The fact that he hit does not change that.
  13. Calling that a drop by Robby Anderson is ridiculous. What Crowder did was a drop.
  14. Apparently, Matt Stypulkoski Idzik took over in 2013. It is at most 7 years of Mac and Idzik. 6 1/2 really. If I don't feel good about the 2021 roster it is a very bad sign. If I feel bad about them and I am not proven obviously wrong, they've got to go. That is a nice season, but 29/7 > 32/16. O'Brien, O'Donnell, Pennington and Fitzpatrick all had better seasons by that criteria. Some more than once. sh*t, Uncle Josh was 2 to 1 in 2017.
  15. Our first is going to be awfully high. His attitude is disastrous. His catch rate is atrocious. He is locked up long term at $15M per, with no dead money, but he is just the kind of guy that would retire in the middle of his deal out of spite. Taking him on is like taking a shot on Antonio Brown. Maybe it is worth it. Giving up a top 10 pick for privilege is total insanity.
  16. Are your glasses rosy or green? The ******* guy fumbled.
  17. That game was never anything near close. We got blown out of the building from kickoff. The fact that the score wasn't that lopsided for a few minutes doesn't mean anything. I will agree that they seemed to play hard, and kept trying to score until the very end, but closer than the score? First of all, what does that mean? It felt like a 20 point loss instead of 21? Second, No. They were crushed.
  18. I am not a Gase fan, but we have been begging for this. We don't really deserve to get to complain. The Ravens demolished us last night. From the first two drives on, but Gase kept trying to win the game. Calling for an onside kick with 12 minutes left? We can argue the intelligence (I would have called it off after the Ravens took the TO) of the move, but quitting in the 3rd quarter is something we killed Bowles for and not doing it probably has causes us to lose by double digits more often. Defensive coaches play things close and eat clock. Throwing all over the field extends the game, but gives these superior teams more clock to pound us. Those close losses with Rex and Bowles counted the same in the W/L column.
  19. He gets in the end zone. He is seriously fast and quick and has decent size. I don't get where you get slow from, but the eye test is the eye test. Never heard of a slow jet sweep before. Especially not a successful one. I am also surprised that he stuck, but I thought it would be his inconsistent hands that did him in.
  20. Whoa. That guy is rawest of the raw. Didn't really see the light of day even in preseason. I picked him in the mock because his measurables are sick and he scored a TD something like every 6th touch. Former QB. I'm psyched. Go #1!
  21. I get the Falk thing, but the Steelers have only started 3 QBs. Who is the 4th string? I didn't figure the advanced numbers, but I think they are around 20 ppg discounting those 3 games. I'm not sure if I figured that before or after the Dolphin game, but those 22 points aren't going to skew the number much. I think it around 22nd in the league. Just behind Kingsbury and the Cardinals.
