  1. 2018 Dallas Cowboys Season Outlook

    Cowboys' 2018 Schedule Week 1: at Carolina Panthers on Sept. 9 at 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox Week 2: vs. New York Giants on Sept. 16 at 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC Week 3: at Seattle Seahawks on Sept. 23 at 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox Week 4: vs. Detroit Lions on Sept. 30 at 1 p.m. ET on Fox Week 5: at Houston Texans on Oct. 7 at 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC Week 6: vs. Jacksonville Jaguars on Oct. 14 at 4:25 p.m. ET on CBS Week 7: at Washington Redskins on Oct. 21 at 4:25 p.m. ET on CBS Week 8: BYE Week 9: vs. Tennessee Titans on Nov. 5 (Monday) at 8:15 p.m. ET on ESPN Week 10: at Philadelphia Eagles on Nov. 11 at 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC Week 11: at Atlanta Falcons on Nov. 18 at 1 p.m. ET on Fox Week 12: vs. Washington Redskins on Nov. 22 (Thanksgiving) at 4:30 p.m. ET on Fox Week 13: vs. New Orleans Saints on Nov. 29 (Thursday) at 8:20 p.m. ET on Fox/NFL Network Week 14: vs. Philadelphia Eagles on Dec. 9 at 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox Week 15: at Indianapolis Colts on Dec. 16 at 1 p.m. ET on Fox Week 16: vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Dec. 23 at 1 p.m. ET on Fox Week 17: at New York Giants on Dec. 30 at 1 p.m. ET on Fox I do appreciate the NFL finally not opening with Cowboys vs Giants here lol. Gotta love ending the season in NY though. Also, If by some chance Dez ends up in NY, that week 2 game in Arlington under the big lights could be a cool story line to watch. Should be a really good early divisional game either way though. IMO, this to me looks like a pretty tough schedule for the Cowboys in 2018. Its a year to year game so who knows, but a good amount of playoff teams from the previous season on this list. NFC South will be tough and the AFC South could be a handful all its own as well. The stretch run after the bye will be interesting, but i do like that there are only two divisional games before the bye week for Dallas. Bye week mid season is nice as well, IMO I think the games that peek my interest the most are: @Carolina, @Houston, @ATL, vs. Jags and Then Brees coming to town after Turkey week. Once again the Cowboys as usual get the back to back Thursday games. I have a gut feeling on the record for the season, but i will hold off until after the draft and into camp before i truly make up my mind.
  2. New York Giants 2018 Season Outlook

    after reading this it struck me that this sounds a lot like what Walter Football wrote about Mixon this time last year. He didn't compare him to Barry Sanders but many of the Bolded items you have here are similar. I do think Saquon is a better prospect and athlete, but if NYG pull Saquon's card in this draft, to me its going to feel a lot like CINCY pulling Mixon's last year. If the Giants draft Barkely with that early first, they will have to hit on their next few picks in a big way especially at OL for Saquon to have any sort of consistent success as a rookie or possibly in whatever window Eli has left. I do agree, this draft is very good for Center and Guard, so that is does work in NY's favor. Its awful at OT though, FWIW. Can you see the similarities in the idea of Mixon to Cincy vs Saquon to NYG?

    ridiculous and sickening, no doubt. Should have fired JG's butt
  4. Dez Bryant 2018 Season Outlook

    So far, Dez wants the Giants from what I'm seeing/reading. Sounds like he's trying to will his way to NY. Giants publicly haven't shown interest(unless i've totally missed it) and i do agree and i said it yesterday, i think its wasting money to bring in Dez. They don't need him, IMO. He's not going to be a guy that get NYG over the hump to turn the corner to a title, so i would view it as wasting cash and tip toeing with the idea of another volatile locker room, possibly.
  5. 2018 Dallas Cowboys Season Outlook

    Little doubt in my mind AROD leads them back to victory lol. Hell, he's done it to the Cowboys every chance he gets so why not
  6. Dez Bryant 2018 Season Outlook

    i'd say the only real possibility that is in the Giants best interest is one that is stated in that article you posted. The league minimum for Dez. Its a low risk win for the Giants to take. Given that Dez is getting paid to leave Dallas, maybe its just "crazy" enough for Dez to consider, who knows
  7. 2018 Dallas Cowboys Season Outlook

    we would have to dive a bit deeper on this overall regarding the future cap and the details of who needs to get paid in Dallas, but my main concern with Earl is the possible extension required and all that comes with that. I HATE the idea of giving up substantial draft picks for one year rental safety that hasn't played a full season the past two seasons. His injury list isn't great either (broken leg)and its one that even had him contemplating retirement publicly at one point. He would be a great mentor to a young Dallas secondary, but i don't like the red flags here with Earl, especially given the Cowboys cap situation looks to be shaping up some for 2019. Lawrence, Martin, maybe Irving, Zeke eventually, and possibly Dak all will need cash sooner then later. So overall I'm having a hard time balancing out the idea of adding Earl and if its truly worth the risk/money. Im conflicted. I want Earl and i'd like to see him here past one season, but i don't like the money i think its going to take to extend him. It could further jeapardize Dallas future Side Note: if I'm Dallas i'd be checking in on the price of Tre Boston. He's no Earl Thomas but he's a fine player, good age, with decent experience. Still currently a UFA
  8. Dez Bryant 2018 Season Outlook

    yep. So i'd make dang sure the culture within has changed in full and its moving forward. GMEN don't need a guy like Dez, IMO
  9. Dez Bryant 2018 Season Outlook

    for a team that just absolutely imploded last season, mostly due to locker room instability and poor coaching. This makes zero sense for the Giants, IMO. They are better served moving forward with what they have and this draft ahead. EDIT: Def still cut Marshalls butt though, i should have added. They don't need him. There is a ton of decent looking WR's in this draft ahead that could be a very nice add for your GMEN.
  10. Dez Bryant 2018 Season Outlook

    Dez was hoping in the back of his mind that his boy Jerry would save him after swinging and missing on SammyW. Sounds like Dez was either in denial or just to dumb to follow the tea leaves. I'd side with thinking its a bit of both. I think Dez and his agent thought they had the Cowboys pinned in a bit of a corner and that ultimately Jerry would side with bringing him back since they have been so close over the years. This is also Prob the first time Dez hasn't been treated as a star football player in his entire life as well(his actions in interviews/ twitter prove me right by the minute i believe, he's butthurt). So i think Its a refreshing wake up call for all parties involved here. FWIW, i appreciate Dez for his time in Dallas. He was a fun player to watch when healthy. This may be a situation that leads to a tough road to hoe in 2018 for Dak and his WR's but i believe its the right move and in the best interest of the Cowboys now, and moving forward. Its a move that helps the Cowboys in 2019 as well with their cap situation. I wish him well with his next team.
  11. Dez Bryant 2018 Season Outlook

    Seattle its a team i've thought all along makes a ton of sense for Dez. That or the Redskins. Maybe Niners, we know they have cash
  12. New York Giants 2018 Season Outlook

    what does your source say if CLE doesn't pick Darnold? GMEN go Darnold at 2 and the Bills trade is a no go? EDIT for a follow up: Or what if CLE picks Saquon and Allen/Darnold are still there for the Giants?? You have any indication as to what the Giants would do then?
  13. New York Giants 2018 Season Outlook

    the first two picks and Marino? IDK i've always never viewed Elway as that talented but i've seen many argue that.
  14. Dynasty, McKinnon or Henry? WHIR

    my first thought was, i'd wait and see what happens during the NFL draft ahead at the end of this month. It would not shock me at all to see SF snag an RB in this draft ahead, which is fairly deep this year. They clearly like McKinnon based off the money they paid him but i also don't think he's a three down work horse type RB. Or at least to this point he's not been given that opportunity to show case it, i should say. A player like Guice, Michel etc could really make McKinnon's situation interesting and possibly cap his upside and use a bit. My opinion is i'd hold out until after the NFL draft if possible.
  15. George Kittle or Trey Burton? WHIR

    i've invested in both TE's here across a few dynasty leagues and i like their upside a good bit. Its really hard to ever predict how these drafts go but my gut feeling is you should see both of these players available at 2.4. Possibly..........3.3 but i doubt both are still there by then. I think as of right now i like Burton in CHI just slightly more then Kittle. I think the scheme Nagy will implement for Burton should be one that fits his skill set well, and i think he could be a nice safety valve for a still developing Trubisky. That being said, it would not shock me at all to see Kittle become a go to option for Jimmy G in SF. I'd like to see what SF does in this draft ahead as far as pass catchers as well. Kittle has the more polished QB so i think that gives him a boost. Im just unsure of Kittles overall use heading into this season. If both were there for me today and i had to pick, I'm leaning Burton slightly over Kittle. But i'd be pretty thrilled to land either, TBH Best of luck
