  1. DeShone Kizer 2017 Season Outlook

    I'm sure they will. Kizer's numbers have been Ryan Leaf/Akili Smith-like, especially considering how much more passing-friendly the NFL is now compared to the late 90s and early 2000s. The Browns are going 1-15 or 0-16 this season, so will likely pick #1 or #2. Rosen or Darnold will be there if the Browns want one of them.

    Losing EE hurts, but the Indians can plug in Brantley at DH. Nice to have a hitter of Brantley's quality in reserve.
  3. 10/4 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Rodney is going to be the Achilles' heel for Arizona. No way you can trust him in a one run game with command that erratic. Bradley's confidence can't be real high after giving up missiles all over the yard tonight either. He was lucky not to give up a homer to Valaika as well.
  4. LA Chargers 2017 Season Outlook

    I wasn't talking about this season specifically. In the past several years, the Chargers have lost a lot of close games. Rivers is a very good QB, but there are times when his complete lack of mobility (he's probably the slowest QB in the NFL, even moreso than Brady) is a negative in close situations at the end of games. In close situations at end of games, in obvious passing situations, he is unable to extend plays at all. Rivers is not even terribly mobile in the pocket, like Brady or Brees. Rivers' o-line has let him down on many occasions, which can be traced back to this team having constant injuries on the line, disrupting any kind of continuity. But Rivers is a very good QB that most teams would love to have, but his play at times is one of many factors as to why this team struggles so consistently to win close games.
  5. LA Chargers 2017 Season Outlook

    The Raiders would have fared best because there are Raider fans everywhere. A lot of people root for the Raiders because of what that franchise has historically represented (outlaw culture, non-conformity, etc.). A lot of their fans haven't even been to Oakland or the Bay Area. The Chargers are just a bland franchise that a lot of people in SD didn't even pay much mind. LA is a horrible place for non-glamour franchises (i.e. the Clippers before Lob City). The Dodgers and Lakers do well because they're two of the biggest glamour franchises in sports. I've been to so many "holy s**t, can you believe we lost?" Charger games in recent years. The Saints loss last year, the game where they let Ray Rice pick up 4th and 28 on a checkdown, the game where Tebow beat them when they had unlimited chances to win. All the people in attendance were saying, "Damn, watching Tebow in person makes you realize how bad he is." The Browns have been torturing their fanbase with flat-out ineptitude, while the Chargers lose in far more creative ways. But Dean Spanos deserves this. Guy is a silver-spoon, selfish, moronic pr**k.
  6. LA Chargers 2017 Season Outlook

    For sure. Rivers has problems making plays in big moments. His insane lack of mobility is also a big issue.
  7. LA Chargers 2017 Season Outlook

    They lose more winnable games than any team in NFL history, I swear to god. Rivers must be a tortured man at this point, enduring so many absurd losses. I attended probably 50 Charger games with my dad from the early 90s to last year. The move to LA has been a nightmare scenario, as expected. People in SD hate the Spanos family, so at least 80% of the fanbase abandoned the team. They have zero presence in LA, whereas the Rams at least had a small built-in fanbase for the move. This team has been hellish to follow for the last 5-6 years because they have talent, but NEVER make big plays to win games. Their games are like the Bill Murray film "Groundhog Day". I feel bad for the players because most of them didn't want the move and they don't have many fans anymore. It's a brutal situation for these guys. They have so much more talent than the rest of the league dregs (Rivers, Gordon, Allen, Williams, Henry, Bosa, Ingram, Jatavis Brown, Casey Hayward are all studs), but they can't do anything right in crucial moments. Lynn has been brutal so far, makes McCoy look like Belichick.
  8. Deshaun Watson 2017 Season Outlook

    His footwork in the pocket is like that of a 5 or 6 year vet. It's really impressive. Combine that with his mobility and he has a chance to be really special. I have no idea where this idea his arm isn't strong enough came from. I heard that all throughout the pre-draft process. Dude was throwing missiles all over the field today.
  9. San Francisco 49ers 2017 Season Outlook

    Probably kicking themselves for not taking Watson, as are the Browns, Jets, and Jags.
  10. Philip Rivers 2017 Season Outlook

    He's entered the phase where Favre was late in his Packers' career, but without Favre's mobility or cannon for an arm. He's an INT machine who makes a ton of risky throws. He will put up a lot of yards, but probably throw 20+ ints. It doesn't help that he's clearly frustrated with the state of the Chargers' franchise. They've moved to LA, have almost zero fans anymore, and are headed to their third straight double digit loss season.
  11. Larry Fitzgerald 2017 Outlook

    Fortunately, their division sucks. If they hang around .500, which I expect them to, they'll be in the hunt for that division. Seattle's o-line will continue to make them inconsistent and the Rams are improving, but have a tough schedule the rest of the way. Those three teams will all be around 7-9 wins IMO.
  12. Bruce isn't a numbers guy. He's a footbaw guy.
  13. Seahawks, Cardinals, Giants, Bengals have the worst o-lines in the league and they're pretty far out in front of anyone else. The Cardinals' o-line was pathetic in the 4th quarter. If you give Palmer time to throw, he's still an above average QB.
  14. Joe Mixon 2017 Outlook

    In the little that I do watch college football, I know that the Big 12 has notoriously atrocious defenses. Defenders for schools like Texas Tech, Baylor, West Virginia, Oklahoma State, Kansas, and, sadly, UT-Austin, might as well be tackling dummies. I've watched a few Mixon highlight tapes and he really doesn't look that explosive IMO if you take away the Big 12 factor. Mixon looks like the type of dude that can be a 6.0 YPC guy in the Big 12, but could be pretty ordinary in the NFL. I've watched the vast majority of his carries the past two weeks and I see nothing that stands out. I haven't seen one play where he's really done anything out of the ordinary. Hopefully, he can transcend the o-line play because I do own him in a couple leagues. Given how people were super high on the guy given his legal issues, I expected him to look like Kareem Hunt does now or rookie AP. Not in terms of results, just explosiveness. It's important to remember how many guys look god-like in college highlight videos. Beanie Wells looks like Walter Payton and Earl Campbell rolled into one in his OSU highlights.
  15. Joe Mixon 2017 Outlook

    It's odd, I expected this dude to be super-explosive, transcendent even, considering he knocked a woman cold and there was talk about him going first round. I have to admit, I don't give a s**t about college football, so I never watched him at Oklahoma, but he looks like a somewhat solid, if unspectacular, back so far. Clearly better than Jeremy Hill and far more built to handle a full workload than Gio Bernard. Obviously, the line sucks, but he looks just perfectly decent. I expected him to explode upon NFL defenses the way his fist explodes upon a woman's face given the hype I heard, but I haven't seen that factor so far.
