  1. I had heard some second-hand rumors from someone I trust a while ago, saying that the situation was pretty ****** and that they may have to play some games in the dome, which seemed crazy at the time. I wasn't sure how reliable that was, but then, sure enough, they announced they were keeping the Dome there just in case, and delayed it further. I wouldn't be surprised if there are a couple of games in the dome. That was a while ago though, and I guarantee Arthur is pressuring some people to get the **** thing built like they rebuilt the I-85 bridge in a couple of months.
  2. All jokes aside...this is awesome. Love to keep seeing how a lot of our guys are working their ***** off this offseason. That one-handed catch by Jalen was nasty.
  3. I thought this was going to be about Kelvin Benjamin
  4. I don't think you know how much a 5th year option costs for a top 10 pick. He's getting paid high-end tackle money for that 5th year. I'm honestly one who would like to see him take another step before committing big money, but come on with the health stuff, he's only missed one game in his career.
  5. Haha, they're battling each other hard over Benjamin at the Carolina Huddle board. I was just reading over there for some laughs, and this ad came up that might help out...
  6. Ishmael is at LB now too.
  7. This is Twinkles btw. I think he's actually on this forum, but I can't remember his screen name...
  8. I don't know...you can always just sit a guy on the bench for that game. I could see teams waiting until final cuts in order to try to hide their targeted PS players better in the massive amount of cuts league-wide.
  9. Did you guys know that Matt Ryan has a cat named Twinkles? Imagine that. The ******* MVP of a league of football-playing men with a ******* cat named Twinkles. Disgraceful.
  10. My dog's name is Champ, because I'm an Atlanta sports fan, and we're always champs, right? Right? (please kill me)
  11. It was barely publicized, but they did actually do a spring league this year, and apparently, it got some guys an invite for mini-camp tryouts. It didn't get it to where it could/should be on that, but it was a step in the right direction.
  12. Yeah, I agree. But with how Quinn likes to experiment with players at different positions and give unproven players a chance of playing time, I think it could be even more of a positive than it might be on some teams.
  13. Getting rid of the 75-man cutdown is interesting. More time to evaluate players in the preseason seems like a positive for a Quinn-led team.
  14. Well, if sportsmasher.com doesn't approve of this, I'm sold
  15. I think you can throw the charts out near the top of the draft. The best way I've heard this put is that when you're trading up that high in the draft, you're trading for a player, not the pick. It's a big reason why the trade-up from #6 to #2 for RGIII cost a fortune, while a trade-up from #12 to #3 for Dion Jordan didn't cost anywhere close to that much. Beyond that, I agree that it is usually a fairly accurate guideline.
  16. I get the Freeman love, but you guys acting the cap doesn't even matter...it does. The whole "TD is a cap genius" isn't a thing...we haven't been in cap trouble because we haven't had many players worth paying big money in a while until recently. It doesn't take a genius to manage that. There are a lot of tricks he's yet to use, but you've got to be careful with those. We're not close to being in cap trouble, but we need to spend our money wisely from here. He's done a good job with contracts, but let's see how he handles these upcoming big contracts before we proclaim him a genius.
  17. I've definitely been on the "division games to end the season doesn't bother me" train, and this does reinforce that, but I do think the division should be better this year. Regardless, while the numbers might not look as pretty, I don't see how anyone else is close to where we should be at. They might be good, but if the defense continues to build on the steps they took into the playoffs, watch out.
  18. You're right, and that is important context. I actually didn't remember that Tamme was hurt for that many games. I definitely agree that Toilolo was quite an important piece though.
  19. And the other side feels that a deal could make the team weaker. Honestly, many on the Freeman side have me feeling fine with it, but I still think it is worth discussing. Your opinion is just your opinion....no more valid than anyone else on here.
  20. Nothing wrong with a differing opinion. I feel like some people just want an echo chamber on here sometimes.
  21. Auntie Bee, where have you been? I emailed you yesterday on Yahoo to let you know that your thread had a lot of replies. Please check your email or we can't help keep you up to date.
