This is not a bring Em home thread but the way contract talks between Miller & Wilkerson are playing out, it's has my mind going. They could possibly make it FA. Denver is handcuffed with Miller, they either pay up or let Miller walk. Cox getting 63 mil guaranteed may have ruined it for Miller and the Broncos. I'm not what they're gonna do at this point. The ball is definetly in Millers court. New York isn't under the gun like Denver is with the talent on their DL but Cox getting 63 guaranteed didn't help their situation either. I'm not even sure if NY has made significant attempts to resign Mo Wilk from some of the comments he's made. Said he doesn't feel wanted & will play under the tag if he has to. It all brings me to his.. If either one of these 2 makes it to FA.. Would you guys approve of us going after one? If they make it to the market we're talking 100 mil 65+ guaranteed off the top. I know it would almost cripple resigning some of our own guys but would it be worth it? Both are game changers but I'm not sure if they'd be worth resigning our own. Thoughts ?
I just watched a recent press conference with Thomas Dimitroff and Dan Quinn, and at the start of the press conference one of the replies by Thomas D. he replied to Dan Quinn as "Q" around 2:29 or 2:30. What do you think about that? Is that a good thing? Bad thing? Who cares? I grew up a big Star Trek fan and "THE Q" was an all powerful being who could control everything. SO when someone says someone is the "Q" that's what it means to me. But it might have different meanings to others. Thoughts? http://www.atlantafalcons.com/news/article-1/5-Things-Quinn--Dimitroff-Pre-Draft-Presser/2d965c3c-b163-41d0-9baa-ced30975c72c Personally, I hate it when people try and create new catch phrases and symbolize someone doing such manners and things. I have a name and don't like it when somebody thinks it's okay to call me otherwise, it's disrespectful, and demeaning in my opinion. BTW: This is all in good fun and not some SERIOUS so let's get riled up about it Falcons fan's post. LOL!!!! First, post your thoughts on this, and second post a one word or letter name you feel that you would be replying to TD if he addressed you as a ONE LETTER PERSON.
Ok guys, I wanted to get your input here. Here is NFL.com's top team needs. I know there has been trade up/down talk but who would be a realistic trade partner for us? The more I look the less teams I see likely to jump into our spot. One thing I also see that may happen is Tampa trading up with St. Louis for Robinson or Matthews since their top need is OT/OG. The only teams I think that may be willing to trade into our spot would be the Lions, Titans, or Giants who all seem to be looking for the top CB on the board, or I could see the Titans trying to jump the Vikings for whatever QB may be available. Would it even be worth it to trade into the 11th spot, would the drop-off from the 6th best player available to the 11th be too drastic? Thoughts? http://www.nfl.com/n...or-all-32-teams 1. Houston Texans 2013 Record: 2-14 Team needs: QB, RT, OLB Analysis: The Texans have been relatively quiet in free agency and quarterback remains their top need. I'm not convinced Case Keenum is the long-term answer. I would be very surprised if they passed on the top signal-caller in this draft. 2. St. Louis Rams (from Redskins) 2013 Record: 7-9 (Redskins, 3-13) Team needs: WR, OL, S Analysis: Rodger Saffold's return will plug one hole on the offensive line and his versatility means the Rams could address either tackle or guard in a strong OL draft. They have drafted several wide receivers in the last few years, but they still need a true No. 1 wide receiver. Tavon Austin has a bright future in the slot, but they still need a go-to-guy on the outside. 3. Jacksonville Jaguars 2013 Record: 4-12 Team needs: QB, RB, OT Analysis: The Jaguars needed to upgrade their defensive front and they've done so with an aggressive free agency approach, by re-signing Jason Babin and adding Chris Clemons, Red Bryant and Ziggy Hood. Now, the clear draft focus has to be quarterback. 4. Cleveland Browns 2013 Record: 4-12 Team needs: QB, OG, RB Analysis: I will be very surprised if the Browns take any position other than a quarterback with their top pick, especially after releasing Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell during the first week of free agency. They are loaded with extra picks in this draft, and they could package a few of them to move up for a QB of their liking. 5. Oakland Raiders 2013 Record: 4-12 Team needs: QB, OL, WR Analysis: The Raiders, like three of the four teams drafting directly in front of them, are unsettled at quarterback. They could also use a legitimate No. 1 wide receiver. The free-agent additions of DE Justin Tuck and OLB LaMarr Woodley filled some needs. They are high on second-year OT Menelik Watson and newly acquired OT Austin Howard. However, they could use a talent upgrade at the guard spots and someone to push their two starting tackles. 6. Atlanta Falcons 2013 Record: 4-12 Team needs: OLB, OT, TE Analysis: The Falcons got much bigger on defense with the free-agent additions of DE Tyson Jackson and DT Paul Soliai, but they are still in dire need of a dynamic edge rusher. An offensive tackle like Jake Matthews would also make a lot of sense with the top pick. It's a good tight end crop to find a replacement for Tony Gonzalez. 7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2013 Record: 4-12 Needs: OT, OG, CB Analysis: New GM Jason Licht was ultra aggressive in free agency but the Buccaneers could still use another guard and tackle (Michigan's Taylor Lewan would be a good fit with top pick) as well as more depth at corner. I wouldn't be shocked either if the Bucs used their top pick on a quarterback even after signing Josh McCown in free agency. 8. Minnesota Vikings 2013 Record: 5-10-1 Team needs: QB, OG, S Analysis: In free agency, the Vikings kept their young pass rusher (Everson Griffen) and made additions to the cornerback spot. However, I don't believe Matt Cassel is the answer at QB, a position that will likely be addressed early in the draft. 9. Buffalo Bills 2013 Record: 6-10 Team needs: RT, LB, WR Analysis: The Bills are set at one tackle spot with Cordy Glenn but they could use an upgrade on the opposite side. They added Keith Rivers in free agency but he's never lived up to his first-round billing, so LB still remains a position of need. If Sammy Watkins would somehow fall to No. 9, it would be difficult for Buffalo to pass. 10. Detroit Lions 2013 Record: 7-9 Team needs: S, CB, OT Analysis: The Lions lack a playmaking safety and could also use an upgrade at cornerback, where it might be smart for them to draft more than one in the early rounds. Golden Tate was a nice pickup in free agency and eases the WR need a bit. 11. Tennessee Titans 2013 Record: 7-9 Team needs: QB, CB, RB Analysis: The Titans are a sleeper team to select a quarterback in the first round, and if not, they will likely address it somewhere because of Jake Locker's inability to stay healthy. Also, they must replace Pro Bowl cornerback Alterraun Verner. 12. New York Giants 2013 Record: 7-9 Team needs: DT, WR, CB Analysis: The Giants have been busy in free agency, adding depth to the offensive line and securing a power running back. They did suffer a couple losses along the defensive line, including DE Justin Tuck and DT Linval Joseph, that could be addressed early in the draft. They are also in need of some more speed and athleticism in the secondary. 13. St. Louis Rams 2013 Record: 7-9 Team needs: WR, OL, S Analysis: If the Rams want to upgrade the safety position, they could easily slide down the board, collect some extra picks and still land one of the two elite safety prospects in this draft. They could address their need at wide receiver -- a position of strength and depth in this draft -- in the later rounds. 14. Chicago Bears 2013 Record: 8-8 Team needs: S, CB, DT Analysis: Lamarr Houston was a nice addition to this defensive front but they still have plenty of issues on that side of the ball that need to be addressed in the draft. 15. Pittsburgh Steelers 2013 Record: 8-8 Team needs: CB, DL, WR Analysis: The Steelers brought in safety help (Mike Mitchell) during the early portion of the free agency period but they need to add some youth to the cornerback spot. 16. Dallas Cowboys 2013 Record: 8-8 Team needs: DT, DE, S Analysis: The Cowboys must replace DE DeMarcus Ware and DT Jason Hatcher and they are desperate for an impact safety. The safety position has been an issue for the past few years and it wouldn't be a surprise if they decided to address that problem with their first-round pick. 17. Baltimore Ravens 2013 Record: 8-8 Team needs: C, RT, S Analysis: The Ravens locked up OT Eugene Monroe to play the left side but they need to replace Michael Oher on the right side. They also need to land a starting safety to play alongside Matt Elam, last year's top pick. 18. New York Jets 2013 Record: 8-8 Team needs: OG, WR, CB Analysis: The Jets added Eric Decker in free agency but they could use another playmaker at wide receiver. Fortunately, this draft is loaded at the position and they could address other needs in the first round. 19. Miami Dolphins 2013 Record: 8-8 Team needs: RT, OG, RB Analysis: Offensive tackle Branden Albert was a nice addition in free agency, but there's still plenty of work to be done with the offensive line. The Dolphins also need to find a three-down running back. 20. Arizona Cardinals 2013 Record: 10-6 Team needs: CB, S, QB Analysis: The Cardinals already addressed their biggest need when they signed LT Jared Veldheer in free agency. With Carson Palmer 34 years old, they need to start thinking about his eventual replacement. 21. Green Bay Packers 2013 Record: 8-7-1 Team needs: DL, S, WR Analysis: The Packers paid top dollar to keep CB Sam Shields but they have some work to do in their defensive front, although bringing back B.J. Raji helps. Green Bay will also need to find TE Jermichael Finley's replacement. 22. Philadelphia Eagles 2013 Record: 10-6 Team needs: S, OLB, DL Analysis: The Eagles added one safety in free agency (Malcolm Jenkins) but they still need another one. 23. Kansas City Chiefs 2013 Record: 11-5 Team needs: WR, OG, S Analysis: The Chiefs lost two solid offensive guards in free agency (Jon Asamoah and Geoff Schwartz) and didn't land an impact wide receiver. Both areas should be addressed in the draft. 24. Cincinnati Bengals 2013 Record: 11-5 Team needs: DE, OL, CB Analysis: The Bengals must replace DE Michael Johnson and OT Anthony Collins, and they need to add some young talent to the cornerback position. 25. San Diego Chargers 2013 Record: 9-7 Team needs: CB, NT, WR Analysis: The Chargers need to upgrade the cornerback position and they need another young receiver to complement rising star Keenan Allen. 26. Cleveland Browns (from Colts) 2013 Record: 4-12 (Colts, 11-5) Team needs: QB, OG, RB Analysis: If the Browns pass on a quarterback with the fourth pick, they could grab one at 26, the pick they acquired from the Colts in the Trent Richardson trade. There are plenty of needs on offense. 27. New Orleans Saints 2013 Record: 11-5 Team needs: CB, OL, OLB Analysis: The addition of Jairus Byrd gives the Saints one of the top safety tandems in the league. However, they still need to add an edge rusher and must upgrade the offensive line, especially at tackle. With all of the young, talented quarterbacks in the NFC, you can never have enough corners. 28. Carolina Panthers 2013 Record: 12-4 Team needs: OT, DB, WR Analysis: The Panthers need to give Cam Newton more weapons on the outside, especially now with Steve Smith and Ted Ginn gone. They also must address the free agency losses of FS Mike Mitchell and CB Captain Munnerlyn in the secondary. 29. New England Patriots 2013 Record: 12-4 Team needs: DL, C, WR Analysis: The Patriots need to get younger and more explosive in their defensive line. They have some promising young wideouts but they lack someone with the potential to be a true No. 1 receiver. 30. San Francisco 49ers 2013 Record: 12-4 Team needs: WR, C, DL Analysis: The 49ers have tremendous talent on their roster but they could use an explosive wide receiver and more depth along the defensive front. Daniel Kilgore was re-signed to man the center position but it wouldn't hurt to bring in some competition. 31. Denver Broncos 2013 Record: 13-3 Team needs: CB, WR, LB Analysis: The Broncos hit several home runs in free agency but they need more depth at the three spots mentioned above. 32. Seattle Seahawks 2013 Record: 13-3 Team needs: WR, TE, DL Analysis: The Seahawks are loaded in the secondary and have plenty of pass rushers. However, they could use a big body up front to replace Red Bryant and a new weapon in the passing game for Russell Wilson to replace Golden Tate.
I just noticed that the game opened up with the Dolphins being favored by 1, now I know this is due in part to the fact that we have a ton of injuries, but I honestly can't see us losing this game. A lot of young players who want to get in and show what they got and prove something to Nolan. Snelling I think will get bulk of the carries (whatever that is) and I think the line will continue to improve. I often go and look at the discussion on NFL.com under the game and today I went to look and lots of Dolphins fans predicting a blowout, with scores like 31-6 or 42-17. What are your guys thoughts ? Do you think we have the chance to get blown out ? Do you think that the Dolphins can keep up ? ALSO, I think we win the game by a score of 34-21.
