  1. Psht - why not week to week? reductio ad absurdum. Precedents are dangerous. I don't see any other way outside of hardball; particularly with all the young talent on the team right now.
  2. Trade him to the Browns for 2 1sts, a 2nd and 2 4th round picks.
  3. I'm just here to say that I don't have strong feelings about this.
  4. I did think he looked pretty good last PS, and I think a year of NFL development can do a lot for those guys who were in 3rd rate programs without a lot of top tier development from their coaches - particularly from DQ. But I was mixing this thread up with the bold predictions thread, and as such was kidding - or about 60% kidding.
  5. J'Terius Jones will get more sacks than either McKinley or Beasley, with the 3 of them combining for 36.5 sacks.
  6. Believe it or not.
  7. Except that we're fans of the Falcons, so it would have to be increased by some multiplier.
  8. From the dark end of the roster. Glad they are still churning...
  9. This sounds like the conversation in the off-season between 2015 and 2016. I'm not calling Sarkisian and Shannahan the same, but this issue was pretty similar. For that reason alone, I'm expecting a pretty big jump this year. On the other hand, being a fan, I can convince myself endlessly that we're going to be 19-0. But I'm never right about that.
  10. It looked like a bad bunt attempt.
  11. To be fair, the results look like she probably got a Groupon deal.
  12. Agreed, but it's Sanu who would need to go down in order for Hardy to really get looks. I think he's the kind of receiver who can catch while taking a lick across the middle.
  13. Even if you don't think so, you must be able to understand how someone would take a look at Freeman's 1200ish combined yards (and 8 TDs), and then look at Gurley's 2100ish combined yards (and 19 TDs) in 2017, and disagree with you.
  14. Yeah, but looking at our 2017 production, I can see where he's coming from. We had an actual Super Bowl hang over. Ryan was off last year, and had bad luck with drops and tips leading to interceptions. Gurley is better than Freeman head to head, and less than 1,200 total combined yards is solid, but not special. Julio is better than Cooks by any measure, but still he -astoundingly - only had 3 scores last year. As a fan, I see us bouncing back next year, but I absolutely see how he'd have a couple of trios ahead of ours.
  15. I wouldn't count them out. IMO, the players you mentioned are all better football players than Freeman. Of course in saying that, I'm comparing apples to oranges...
