    First Round NFL Mock?

    I still think the right move is to draft an OT to finish the rebuild of the O line. then draft a QB next year. its a deeper draft for QB's so they may well get an equally good (or better) QB without having to trade up to do it.

    First Round NFL Mock?

    Hey, for those of you who like to speculate on what's going to happen in the draft, this is the thread for you. I"m gonna lay out some speculation now. 1) do the Cards really have an interest in Kyler Murray? They already have Josh Rosen. for me, there are two possible considerations: 1) they are pretending to have interest in a QB. maybe they will interview or work out another one or two before draft day. The reality is this team has a lot of holes they need to fix. one of them is the O line. PFF rated the cards O line as dead last in the NFL. Maybe the smart move is to trade down, get a couple extra picks and retool that line. I know Rosen didnt have a great rookie season, but I dont see a lot of rookie QB's who would perform behind that line. Drafting a new QB wont fix that problem. Even if Rosen is not the guy, a poor O line is a good way to ruin your rookie QB prospects. They need to fix it. Based on that rationale, I am predicting they trade down if a decent offer comes along, then they grab an O lineman (or possibly two O linemen) and set themselves up that way. 2) the other possibility is that they actually are interested in Kyler Murray. That being the case, they may trade Rosen for a player or a pick. Hopefully they get help for that O line one way or another. I dont see Murray performing behind that terrible line either. see the problem? not addressing the O line just leads to more problems. This is why I dont think they pick a QB here. 2) Are the Giants truly committed to Eli Manning? I think the answer to this is actually yes. A year ago they were in the same place the Cards were in terms of their O line problems. They signed Solder and drafted Hernandez and completely rebuilt half the line. While Solder is now 30, they have to realize this is likely a 3 year fix. They should draft his replacement now, and let him play at RT until he is able to take over at LT. I think they take Jaywaan Taylor or Johah Williams here. The other reason I think the Giants do this: Manning quietly had a good season last year. he quietly threw for 4300 yards. I also think having a top O line when Eli retires means that Eli's replacement can play with protection. I think this is an important thing for a rookie. If it turns out I'm wrong, and Eli stinks the joint out, they will be able to draft a top QB in a far better class and put him into a position to succeed immediately. There's really no downside here. The other newly acquired first round pick and their second round pick can address the defensive issues which I feel are substantial. anyhow, I've addressed two of the teams drafting near the top this year. I welcome discussion on these or any of the other projected high draft picks.

    Fitzmagic in Miami

    Generally, Fitz usually is good news for at least one receiver on the roster. sometimes two. he generally puts up lots of yards and can, (at times) put up lots of TD's. the problem is that he also throws a lot of INT's. The good news is that receivers do not get punished when the QB throws an INT. So I'd bet there is at least one WR on this team that will be worth owning.
  4. make no mistake, its still a problem in some leagues. My office league is like that (which led to my leaving that league) People there vote against any deal they dont like. in general, these situations generally get better with time. as the fantasy football players become more knowledgeable and sophisticated, it eventually will get to a point where vetos are, for the most part, not necessary.

    Tyreek in trouble

    it feels more serious to me. maybe it's the recency bias. hard to say....

    Is Full PPR Too Much Nowadays?

    honestly, its really about what the individual players in the league prefer. by adjusting PPR to 1/2 PPR or no PPR (or whatever) all you are doing is adjusting the order you rank the players. in the end it really does not matter. what matters is your analysis on said players to maximize your points in whatever format you choose to use as a league.

    Krafty move

    my question is... how would you prove someone received such services without having a camera in the room the supposed services took place in. I find it hard to believe a judge would grant anyone a warrant to put a camera inside any establishment (even this type of establishment). If I were a betting man I"d guess they have video evidence of him going in, paying for services, then leaving to a private room. I cannot see him accepting this kind of deal..... but perhaps if there was a gag order on info released to the public to keep his name clean he may choose to accept it. I have enough lawyer friends who have talked about this (over a beer because the topic is interesting) and they all claim proving this sort of thing is actually very difficult unless someone actually walks in on you while you are in the process of receiving said 'services' either way, the story is interesting to say the least, but I would expect Kraft would not accept such a deal without making modifications to the deal.

    Odell Beckham Jr. traded to Cleveland

    without a doubt. Players like Odell are coach killers. Elite player calling out poor coaching/managment. usually that's a good way to find your way out of an organization. or to get the coach fired. this works the same in real life.... call out your boss in a public way on a stupid decision they made.... good way to get yourself fired in a hurry.

    This could be a weird question

    he is most likely done. guys who play his style take and give a lot of hits. That concussion problem is a killer for people with his playing style. https://www.cincyjungle.com/2018/12/27/18157728/nfl-injury-news-concussion-vontaze-burfict-bengals-career 7 concussions. That's a lot. and there may be some undocumented ones in there too. There is the chance he may even have a hard time passing a medical. I dont know that I'd wanna take a chance on this. the smart move for him is to hang em up while he still is able to function as a human being.

    Fitzmagic in Miami

    yeah, Fitz is a middling starter with some decent character. that wont win you a superbowl unless you have an elite Defense. An elite defense allows you to be far more conservative on your offensive play calls. You can run the ball a lot more, and generally not take those chances that lead to turnovers. in general, if you have the best defense in the NFL you can get by with an average offense that does not turn the ball over. Thing about Fitz, I dont think hes a game manager. Hes a high risk, high reward type of QB. fun to watch, but not effective enough to get you a championship.

    well, you cant argue on Team chemistry. I loved it when Fitzy showed up to the press conference with Desean Jackson's Bling. it was pretty funny, and I think it loosened things up in the dressing room. I'm pretty sure his team loved it too.

    or they are gearing up to select one next year and want to give the impression they are not actually trying to tank the season.
  13. for hurting his 3 year old child? not yet. but the story just broke, so there is time for something to happen there.

    Ingram

    No offense, but Dixon may not be the best indicator... dude only played 13% of the offensive snaps. I'd suggest Dixon's lack of catches is likely because he didnt play enough. not because of any gameplan the team had in place. so in my opinion, this stat does not tell us anything. I'd expect Ingram will be playing upward of 60% of the teams offensive snaps, and so we are looking at a completely different comparison
  15. done worse? than beating a defenseless 3 year old child? certainly there are worse things out there, but I cannot think of many things short of murder and rape that top that. I'd say it's pretty high up on the list man.
