    Dak

    Yeah, zero pressure. he was only touched twice the entire game. mark rypien looked like a god under those circumstances. it's great that he did well, but let's see what he does against a middle-of-the-pack defense before breaking out the anointing oils.

    Dak

    NYG def isn't very good, but there's no question that Dak is seeing the field better and throwing the football better. moore's playcalling has something to do with it also. it's important not to overreact though.

    Ezekiel Elliott planning to holdout???

    that was pre-cap. nowadays, paying emmitt means a lot of your team depth walks.

    Ezekiel Elliott planning to holdout???

    Cowherd is a knownothing jackass, and it pains me that his idiocy is attached to the Cowboys. Never, ever agree with him. If he's actually right about something, it's an accident.

    Ezekiel Elliott planning to holdout???

    In a massive turnabout, the whole city of Dallas came to love Alf after he came here from WAS. Just a cool dude who did everything that was asked of him, and never once complained.

    Cowboys Defense

    Sack totals have been slowly creeping up for the last few years, but takeaways are still low. problematic ball skills for the CBs, with lots of PBUs but few INTs. x woods looks to have a breakout year, but i'll need to see before i buy. and it has been a while since the return game was productive. i think they're going to be a very good real-football defense, but probably not a great D/ST.

    Zeke, might hold out........

    Zeke is smart to force DAL's hand here--he has info on how DeMarco was handled. But at the end of the day, Dak is getting his (30M+), and Amari is getting his (16M+). You can't look at it year-to-year--it has to be on a multi-year timescale. What it turns into is Zeke vs. Jaylon/Byron, with Jaylon vs. LVE as a sub-analysis. I wish I had an answer. DAL can't continue to put 70% of the cap into the offense unless the offense is utterly dominant. And think about this: that 70% number is before any increase for Dak, Amari, or Zeke, who are demanding at least an additional $40M per year. DAL is doomed.

    2019 NFL Draft - Round 1

    I am pleased with the giants pick.

    First Round NFL Mock?

    absolutely, but that doesn't help when everyone else is having fun for draft season and your team doesn't have a 1st rounder.

    First Round NFL Mock?

    i keep telling myself that everything is ok because DAL's 1st round pick was amari and there's nothing to be sad about. but i know i'm lying.

    OBJ

    passer rating differential is the stat that is the most closely correlated with winning. there are different ways to get there. having a great QB is one way. having a transcendent pass rush or coverage unit is another. a strong run game influences the stat, as does receiver quality. but you can't have gold-plated everything, so a team has to make strategic choices as to how to pursue a positive passer rating differential. IMO, the giants have the least important pieces. if they could swap OBJ for a top pass rusher like mack, they would instantly get closer to playoff caliber. but i don't think they're going to be capable of doing it with eli. he was good enough to ride brilliant defensive play to 2 rings when he was in his prime, but he's too decrepit now to stay in the saddle.

    Will you take mahomes #1 overall next year

    as a quantitative analyst, it irritates me that positional draft value question hasn't been deeply modeled. yes there are variables, but there should be strong, reliable correlations. if i could find the time, like to sit down in R and do a monte carlo simulation of the last few seasons for positional value maximization.
