  1. As much as I would love a high draft pick, I just can't pull for the team to lose. I tried last season but was excited for every meaningless win we got down the stretch!
  2. I second this. I was really hoping for the return of the red helmet. I don't care for the 2 toned jersey, but it could grow on me. Other than those minor items I like them. Not sure why so much hate?
  3. As much as I hate it, Brady is the GOAT. He will not make the mistakes that Winston made constantly. Bruce Arians is a great offensive coach. Great offense no matter where he has been. However, I just don't see this as a good fit. Aside from a couple of seasons with Randy Moss (when Brady was in his prime), Brady has always been a quick read dink and dunk QB that just never makes mistakes. And it has worked - historically so! But he will be 43 when the season starts. And that style of play doesn't fit Arians "no risk it, no biscuit" offense. I don't see Brady being able to wai
  4. He gets this deal just for having a great 10 game stretch last season out of an 8 year career. And the Cowboys still don't want to pay Dak. And Falcons fans still want to complain that Ryan is overpaid. Crazy!!
  5. I like Hooper, but he's not a game changer like the upper tier TE's (the guys in the Super Bowl). But he will get paid like those guys though, and that alone will make it hard for the Falcons to keep him. I think he'll get avg $10M per year. I hope they let him walk. Not because he's not good, but because he will just demand too much on the open market. I don't see him signing a one sided deal for the Falcons, and I hope we don't pay him like a top TE. I hope 100% let him walk, but reality is probably 70/30 let him walk.
  6. I would also say never give a RB a 2nd contract. just continue to draft mid to late round RB's so you always have depth at the position. Granted, you won't hit on every RB drafted, but at least you will have cap space to make the lines better. That's just the analytics side of it, but you also have to worry about how your players are going to react and how the next RB is going to feel about being drafted by you, given that he knows you're never going to pay him.
  7. Tim Dwight. Return specialist. Returned a kickoff for TD in the SB against the Broncos. We lost him to the Chargers in the trade to draft Vick
  8. I've gone back and forth on this. I was pretty much done with him after the dud against the Bucs and the loss on Thanksgiving to the Saints. But this team has not quit! There is a lot to be said for that. There are definitely reasons to fire him, but if they win the remaining 2 games it's gonna be a hard decision for Blank. At some point you gotta stick with a guy because switching coaches every 4 years is no plan for success, Blank just has to decide if Quinn is that guy.
  9. I feel your pain with Evans. I would definitely go for Perriman over Gage. The Bucs have a much easier matchup this week and they throw the ball a ton (not more than the Falcons, but still a ton). And Matty spreads the ball around a lot more than Jameis. I would go for Gage over Anderson as a safer play. Anderson has the higher ceiling, but also the lower floor. Depending on your league size, there may be other players available like Mecole Hardman, Larry Fitgerald or a Philly guy since all their WR's are injured
  10. My bar is set as low as 6-10, provided the team is competitive in EVERY game. And I don't mean just the final score (like the Seahawks game). I want to see coaches have a good game plan, players execute the game plan and not look like trash like they did to start the season.
  11. I am on the side of NEVER give a RB a huge contract. In general, they are just too easy to replace. Even the ones that are "special" have too much risk of injury to tie up that much cap space. Use the money to build the O-line and just keep drafting mid to late round RB's. I'm even OK with drafting a RB later in the 1st round, just don't give him a 2nd contract.
  12. Just read a few posts in this 7 page thread to see the division that this player causes. No way an NFL team wants to bring in someone who will cause that kind of division among its fanbase...unless he is supremely talented. Which Kap is NOT. Yes he had a couple of really good years, but overall he is average at best. If he was a great QB, he would have a job. If Patrick Mahomes or Russell Wilson did took a knee during the anthem, they would absolutely still be in the league. Talent overrides behavior. Players have done FAR worse things and been welcomed back and cheered on by fans. Ray
  13. Josh McDaniels. Then he better bring a great DC with him.
