  1. Lost in most of this conversation is the fact he is still not @ 100% so the fact he isn't used as much in the passing or short yardage pkgs is expected. While it may continue it is also a possibility that especially his passing game role may increase. Short yardage likely won't due to the success of Venus & Serena with their thicker trunks plowing into the pile. Shady could be on the field more in the 2 min drill offense or comeback mode as his health & endurance increases. Borderline RB1/ RB 2 ROS
  2. You're way too young … The original was Csonka & Mercury Morris (plus Kiick) unless you want to go to college with Blanchard & Davis when college was bigger than the NFL
  3. Axe Elf wouldn't belittle himself to offer his insights for a mere $200
  4. Once again we have no clue what info the NFL has or how they will respond to the public potential outcry if they go lightly on Tyreek. That's the main reason I suspect he will get a significant suspension of a minimum 6 games. Way back in the day Paul Hornung & Alex Karras got full year suspensions without a legal guilty verdict. Recently the league did likewise to Zeke and a couple of others to protect their brand. Regardless of actual proof of guilt Hill will get a suspension for conduct unbecoming . The NFLPA gave "THE SHIELD" the power to do so. Ergo there's little recourse for Tyreek or the Union to overturn any ruling. Interesting part will be how the Chiefs approach a future contract . Will Tyreek hold a grudge if he is innocent and the Chiefs didn't show public support or do Hill & Reid have a good enough relationship that Tyreek is thankful that the Chiefs gave him his opportunity when almost no one else was willing ? This is better than Keeping Up with the Kardashians reading the comments where some think they have definitive knowledge of the situation to support their own biases. Seems the masses love drama ! I prefer to wait until the details come public before professing innocence or guilt . Truth be told there is probably way more gray areas than black & white answers here.
  5. Terelle Pryor after signing with Washington add The Great Dayne from just about any of his early years
  6. I'd bet he's not a set it & forget it guy... which is what Tyreek was ! So yes , Mecole is a guy you'd want to have in case he has growth or a good matchup on your starters bye week or injuries. Be surprised if you started 3 or more times in a 12 team or less league. Only in a return yardage lg. is he a pretty sure starter
  7. I remember what a hard time Kyler had finding Hollywood Brown 😅
  8. Tyreek was a extremely physical guy with a RB vision & mentality. Had the strength to fight through jamming by big DB's and quicks to leave you in the dust if you whiffed. Could bully the smaller speed cover guys. Unfortunately used those traits off the field too . Hardman is a Santana Moss lite type. Great threat to take the top off and can be moved around on sweeps & bubble screens but not a go - to guy that can be dominant like Hill became with a full route tree. Beating teams on out routes and skinny posts / slants across the middle. Takes a rare talent combined with toughness to survive at smaller stature running routes in traffic. Will Fuller that is better in the return game. Worth rostering but not going to be the next Cheetah
  9. Rumors surfacing that the Colts are thinking about bringing in Swag Kelly … Probably be 3rd in camp behind Brissett to save on Luck's arm but it's a chance to show something. How long before he ends up on da' Raidahs ?
  10. Damien Williams I'm guessing in KC
  11. Chad Kelly resurfaces to play NFL Football … (on a strangers couch in a game of Madden with a kid) 💥
  12. Hopefully it isn't Caitlyn (not really a Kardashian,I know)
  13. Agreed, Coach Pistachio is molding team in his image to show what a defensive genius he is. Protecting his precious image by dumbing down the offense worked at times but in today's games to beat the elite teams you have to be able to put points on the board. Look at thee teams that consistently win they have to have very good if not great play from their qb come playoffs. Pistachio probably thinks he was integral in the Patriots championships when actually his defenses got torched Bevell seems content to try and win games 17-14 or less but not holding out much hope that will be the case in Detroit. Boring game plans vs Vikes & Bears will get the leos playing from behind which turns loose the pass rush & pressure on Stafford. Not a recipe for success.
  14. Said that a long time ago that rb position isn't where the Chiefs are going to invest much capital with the production they've been getting from cheaper options. So there is a REAL GOOD chance the job is DW's to lose
  15. Goes back to Favre days but as a hometown Lions fan what kind of offensive should we expect from a D.B. / Patricia union ?
  16. Once again you grossly miss the point, Things change , not their age was the point. Fits had 2-3 bad years then got moved almost exclusively to a slot receiver under Arians with Palmer. It was like Larry found the fountain of youth No, his surroundings changed to his benefit. Like Larry when Stefanski took over (and under Zimmer's edict I'm guessing) they went in a different direction. Thielen got less targets on the outside and they were longer throws as he wasn't running majority of the slot routes. Cousins isn't a strong armed sidelines kinda guy. Likes the easier throws in middle where he is more confident. If Adam stays mostly on the outside I'm not expecting top ten finish in '19. I could be wrong
  17. Wasn't comparing totals, referring to style. Spreading out the formation is trusting Trubisky to read blitzes & coverage which he's still learning . Maybe he just never will. agree that Nagy is like the current wave of coaches trying too hard to be a genius and be confounding to the other team . Usually just end up out smarting themselves. Guess they want it to be more about them.
  18. My biggest concern is the development of Trubisky to manipulate the defense with his eyes. Stares down his receivers and it rarely seems to me that the games I watched he audibles into advantageous mismatches pre-snap. Of course that's just my opinion but I haven't heard much praise about his cerebral part of the game. Relies on his athletic ability to get him out of bad situations . Hit or miss results with that approach so far. Made some big plays but threw a lot of questionable balls killing drives. Giving him the benefit of the doubt because he hasn't gotten the game experience even in college so he is still learning on the fly. 2nd offense in two years so as he gets more comfortable I'd expect the game to slow down for him now that he's seen a lot more looks from the defenses and watched his mistakes in film sessions. How does that relate to Cohen ? Nagy can open up the playbook once he has more trust. Cohen can be utilized in more ways a la Tyreek who also spends time dancing around behind the line on his runs looking for the home run. Cohen proved to be a capable runner but his value is in creating mismatches in space. Also I wonder if the Bears defense falls back a notch or two with the departure of Fangio. Might have to rely on the offense to put up more points.
  19. Please don't tell me the rumors are true that the Hackett nut job in Jacksonville is going to be the Lions new offensive coordinator. Never thought that so quickly I'd be leading the charge to bring back Jim Bob Cooter (and I thought he was horrible).What is it with these retreads getting opportunity after opportunity when sucking at their previous place(s) of employment. Same for Loggains & Gase to the Jets.
  20. Yea, ask Larry Fitz owners how that works out. Couple of years ago he had a couple of great seasons but what we need to do is project. Not give a history lesson and assume nothing ever changes. Not calling for as precipitous fall for the Vikings offense but also don't see Thielen being the focus of offense or the passing game as he has been the last two years. Do you think he will get 143 or 153 targets again next season ? I'd peg him in the 125 or so range, 85-90 catches , just over 1,000 yards, 7-8 TD's . Somewhere around 230-240 in full PPR . That would put you in the mid teens over the last 3 years. Definitely not top 5 !
  21. Worse yet rumor has it Darrell Loggains is coming with him as O-coordinator
  22. Easily Eight After week 10 Thielin was #26 in our 1.0 PPR format. Several aren't better but i'd put AT @ about #15 talent wise. A few like Golladay, Sutton, Landry, Woods arguably may pass him as thiey hone their craft which puts him around 20. Not so sure he is a lock @ a WR1
  23. Diggs owner here, best explanation is less slot routes run which coincided with Diggs increase in targets. Shorter throws for the dump down queen Cousins and poor offensive line play. Also relatable to switching of offensive coordinator mid season to Stefanski who was rehired replacing DeFillipo. Third Zimmer is a conservative ,protect his defense first Head Coach who will want a more run friendly game planning with a healthy Dalvin Cook. Palying with a lead also diminished the number of targets overall when Vikes got on a run. First glance I would expect more of the 2nd half type usage next with the rehire of Stefanski.looking for Zimmer to institute a run first philosophy. Diggs about the same overall (hopefully another year with Cousins provides a slight uptick) with Thielin fallling somewhere in between first/second half splits. Top 20 ish
  24. Which is more likely to be repeated.. Mahomes 50ish TD's Or R. Wilson 8-1 ration ???
  25. A score here and it is Super Joe Flacco time !
