  1. Tarik Cohen 2018 Season Outlook

    Actually you intimated that I looked up the numbers and they didn't support my assumption which case they did. Just not as drastically as I assumed. But that's another semantic battle as "quite a few" is a subjective number.
  2. Pierre Garcon 2018 Season Outlook

    Sniped him in a trade where we gave up Marvin Jones Jr. to mitigate the loss. Actually think he could equal Jones Jr this year but age bias in dynasty made it easy to get Pierre included in deal. For a contender like ours needing a solid 3rd / 4th / 5th option behind our big two we are ecstatic.
  3. Tarik Cohen 2018 Season Outlook

    Actually not, but since I'm piqued to know the exact number now it turns out quite the opposite of what you supposed. The numbers support my assumption. Although not quite as strongly as I initially thought. KC avg 61.1 which is lower than assumed. However Chicago was abysmal (as suspected) @ 58.4 . Down the stretch it was more pronounced @ 64 - 58 as the season went on . Where it was really bad was the Bears were the only team to avg under 60 plays @ home. Get this ... 53 & change . That's what I'm remembering some ridiculous play calling . Three plays a game isn't major but I sure expect the Bears to run at least ten more plays a game @ home this year. Therefore I expect to see an increase by Cohen even if they didn't totally change the offense. By the way, I would expect the Chiefs to run more plays too as they finished 28th overall. Would've guessed middle of the pack without looking (which this time I did )

    Actually when I say " Without looking" that's exactly what I do...I don't look. But since you seem so concerned what did you find out ? Was I right or was I wrong ?
  5. Dez Bryant 2018 Season Outlook

    Seattle for me is best for Dez & team fit. Pains me to say as a Darboh supporter . Losing their only red zone go to guy in Graham opens an opportunity for a big bully receiver to get prime end zone looks.
  6. Tarik Cohen 2018 Season Outlook

    Just don't bring in cherry picked ones like here. What were the teams total plays run ? What ratio of run/pass ? W/o looking I'm going to guess KC ran quite a few more plays and yet the Bears still had more rushing attempts. Anybody that watched both teams in '17 wouldn't confuse the two with their approach to offensive game planning.
  7. Dez Bryant 2018 Season Outlook

    Is Dez any more diva-ish than B. Marshall ? That was the plan last year under the previous regime. Just a question of chemistry because as a player he makes perfect sense. Come in on a cheaper one year deal. Win a title, be a good soldier for a year then get a new deal. Also puts a little pressure on Obj to behave because they have another clutch guy if you want to act a fool. Can sit his arse down and have him watch Dez get the spotlight.
  8. Pierre Garcon 2018 Season Outlook

    Executed that exact scenario. Was trying to find a replacement for Marvin in a trade. Baldwin owner wanted first rd prices and got Garcon basically as a throw in . Actually believe Garcon might match or exceed Jones,Jr by himself but got (2) 2nd rds in the deal also. A '18 2.11 and likely late 2nd in '19. Ended up with a top rookie TE ,Garcon & next year 2nd. Happy to have Pierre ...unless Dez comes strolling in

    Look @ Andy Reid disciples use of RB's in the passing game (Ricky Watters, Brian Westbrook, McCoy,etc...) and 64-80 receptions isn't out of the question.
  10. Tarik Cohen 2018 Season Outlook

    We already knew what it took the Bears longer to learn... Fox & Loggains had no clue how to run a modern offense. Definitely didn't know how to utilize one of their most dangerous weapons . Those wingnuts were into running the winged T or the Flying wedge instead of the spread offense. They ran an offense for the '80s...the 1880's !
  11. Tarik Cohen 2018 Season Outlook

    Nobody is confusing The Human Joystick with Ironhead Heyward. Just saying he is a good enough runner to handle running inside at times if the Bears want to try and keep defenses honest. Others have done it @ well below avg size with degrees of success. No, up the gut behind two TE's isn't a recipe for success for Cohen. Yes Tarik tried bouncing to often his rookie year looking for the Big play too often. Experience will break him of that habit. Learn to take the 2-3 yd and hope to pop the Big play coming out the other side where play is designed to go. Not expecting 20 carries but 10 or so with 4-5 catches gets him into RB2 range in PPR.
  12. Tarik Cohen 2018 Season Outlook

    I think Cohen is a much better runner than being given credit for but we will see. I see more Brian Westbrook than Tyreek in Tarik.
  13. Tarik Cohen 2018 Season Outlook

    Nobody should reasonably think he's ever going to be a workhorse RB but 7-10 carries on designed draws, reverses, mixed off tackle runs is certainly within his potential outcomes. Add 4-5 receptions and you cold have 75-80 yds per game plus TD's. Not top 6-8 but 1200- 1300+ yds plus 6 or so TD's puts you in the top 15 ish PPR format @ the position. Maybe We can start a Jordan Howard thread where we can spend 75% of the time discussing Tarik Cohen
  14. Royce Freeman 2018 Season Outlook

    Guice will be long gone. Tough call on the other two. Like Detroit offense much more than Denver's. Blount and I still think Ameer Abdullah can carry the load if they get any kind of blocking. Freeman I think has the clearer path to a bellcow role so I guess I'd go Rolls Royce-ing
  15. Chad Kelly 2018 Season Outlook

    Don't take it or make it a personal thing. You just were wrong about your knowledge of NFL talent . In particular the Denver Broncos and Chad Kelly. I'm not even a Broncos fan @ all. Really think Elway is not a good GM. I just evaluate players talent and situation. Then give an opinion. Offered to wager on our difference of opinion. You don't handle being wrong very well. Try letting it go and admit that this one didn't go the way you thought it would. Blame it on Elway. I think some point down the line Kelly starts . If not it still was a pretty good call on the last player taken in the draft. I've held him and will continue to do so for at least this year into next. And no I don't care if the Broncos had a GREAT draft. And I sure don't get as EXCITABLE as you. I think Warren Zevon wrote a song about you. https://youtu.be/Z4-pexSVWzM
