  1. Fair enough. I stopped scrolling at 1978. So, it's been just under 50 years since a TE was drafted top 5. http://www.drafthistory.com/index.php/positions/te Vernon Davis was the most recent #6 and that was 15 years ago.
  2. There have been two TE's drafted top 10 in the last decade, and both were by the Lions. No TE has ever been drafted top 5. This seems unlikely.
  3. We can comprehend what you're trying to sell. The problem is, you're trying to explain his situation as to why he's the worst QB in the NFL, yet still has huge upside. This isn't a mediocre player who appears poised for a breakout, if he weren't routinely limited by those around him. This is a terrible player, who, frankly, is probably making his situation worse, rather than the opposite. Sam also played all of FO's bottom 6 defenses, including Miami twice, and a Bills team resting starters, on his way to his heroic 6-2 finish. That's why it's obvious he didn't regress, he just
  4. I'm not going to make you any list of names, because I'm not the one who needs comparisons to support my argument. I'm making the exceptionally simple point that apparently is hard to grasp, that the QB who was not good his junior year of college, that QBASE gave a high bust rate to, and who was not good for three seasons in the NFL, is in fact, not good. Mind blowing stuff, I know. You Darnold Stans are the ones doing the mental gymnastics and in need of huge reaches of logic to defend a guy who's been the NFL's worst QB for three years. If Darnold were good, we'd have seen it by now.
  5. This is how you draft Jamal Adams over Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson, of course. Also, I'd hardly call Chad Pennington going to the Dolphins and them introducing an offense the NFL had never seen before to mask his deficiencies and then him throwing 4 picks in one playoff game, coming back to bite the Jets.
  6. Can you name a player who was the worst QB in the league without elite talent, and then got better talent, and became great. Both Gates and Tomlinson were around before Brees's breakout year. So, maybe, just maybe, Brees was a talented QB who got better while Sam Darnold, who yes, doesn't have great talent around him, sucks anyway. You know he was a turnover machine at USC too, right?
  7. I'm shooting it down because they've already had the same amount of starts, and Brees was already good, and because Sam Darnold is the worsts QB in the league, for starts over the past 3 years, something Brees never was. Bringing up Drew Brees is just a desperate attempt at optimism about the leagues worst QB, who shares very few, if any, attributes with him.
  8. I would just think if a number of big institutions refuse to adopt, it may stall. I don't know a ton about it, but seems like there are going to be some major players invested in not letting bitcoin become an easily proliferated currency. No idea. And, if I can get back in cheaply, I will. What the **** do I know? It's been good to me so far.
  9. If there's a meaningful dip, I'll get back in and hold. I do however, have some reservations about believing BTC will become a meaningful tradable commodity. Too many people with lots of money who didn't get in early enough will fight that, no?
  10. I bought at 19K in Nov and sold this past weekend at 56K. Didn't become a bitcoin millionaire, but a nearly 3x multiple wasn't bad.
  11. I mean, sure - in this completely made up scenario that has no basis in reality he's Drew Brees. Unfortunately, on earth, Sam Darnold is, after starting 3 years and 38 games, the NFL's worst QB. I'd be happy to have the Brees/Rivers problem, which, may have gone very differently had Brees not gotten hurt, if you'll recall. And, frankly, still wasn't so bad a Rivers was a perennial top tier QB. Unfortunately, again, on earth, we're closer to the Christian Hackenberg problem, and you all want to draft Jamal Adams again.
  12. No, what changed is that draft order has been settled for two months.
  13. Lawrence is going #1 overall to the Jags. What exactly should be spoken about right now?
  14. What's your point? That we should be aggressive like the Chargers and draft another QB (after 27 starts) when the one you have has failed to demonstrate he can play? Rather than just give another year to the worst QB in the NFL over 38 starts? That sounds like a good idea.
  15. I am. Because, adding weapons does not mean a soon to be first ballot hall of famer is a good comparison to the leagues current worst QB.
  16. Nice googling. How does the analysis differentiate between age and number of starts, or total attempts, when arriving at its conclusion? How does the analysis control for the fact that only good QBs age? As, young QBs who don't improve don't stick around (unless you're a Jets QB, of course). Spoiler alert: It doesn't. In fact, it even offers: an "experience curve" looks roughly the same as an aging curve Unfortunately, there's no evidence to support a Sam Darnold improvement out of worst in the league vis-a-vis another birthday, despite your attempt to sell his ag
  17. In fairness, wouldn't Andy Dalton have been like the 2nd best QB in Jets history?
  18. What, specifically, about age suggests improvement at quarterback?
  19. Indeed. You can't be Brett Favre without Brett Favre's arm. And that's exactly what Sam Darnold is.
  20. I think this is fair. In sort of the same way I correctly predicted that no one named Mitchell would be a successful NFL Quarterback. Bears should have put me on the payroll.
  21. The Drew Brees comparison is so intellectually dishonest. Brees played very well in his fourth year in the league, but it was his 3rd year actually playing, and only 27 prior starts. Sam Darnold has played 3 years, was a disaster in year 3, and had a similar 26 prior starts leading into the year. So, after 26/27 starts, Brees went 11-4, throwing for 3100 yards, 65% completion, and 27 TDs to 7 INTs while Sam went 2-10 throwing for 2200 yards, 59% completion, and 9 TDs to 11 INTs, and is PFF's worst QB in the NFL and 2nd worst when removing throws under pressure.
  22. If Mahomes was going to be Mahomes, why didn't everyone trade up to #1 overall for him? If Brady was going to be Brady, why did he make it to the 6th round?
