  1. Doug Baldwin 2018 Season Outlook

    The facts are he violated the league drug policy multiple times, no one had as many chances to get his act together and lesser talented players would have been out of the league forever. So the commish and the Browns went above and beyond because he is that talented.

    JOSH GORDON please forgive the unforgiveable typing error
  3. Doug Baldwin 2018 Season Outlook

    Josh Brown is a game changing WR. Do you think Goddell and the Browns would have kept bending over backwards, sideways and everyway for a player who was not game changing?

    Only two 1st rd rb's have a SB ring since 2000, reggie bush and marshawn lynch(traded to seahawks). The every down rb is a luxury whereas the franchise QB is a neccessity. Tyrod is not viewed as a franchise QB so you need to spend a top pick to get the best of the litter this draft. I would also take chubb over barkley because the edge rusher position is more valued than the rb position. The guy who can disrupt the function of an offense is worth his weight in gold over years. Too many times it is shown weekly in todays pass happy protect the QB at all costs rules and refereeing, the way you beat a QB and the offense is to hit the QB get in his face or move him out of position. I think cle and the giants are blowing smoke about Barkley, it's QB for both then chubb. Chubb is more valuable to those teams than barkley.

    orst case scenario for browns is Dorsey was smart enough to sign Tyrod insurance; if the Browns have a winning record or if they do something amazing such as make a playoff run fans will not be calling for a rookie to take over this year or next

    The economics of the NFL with salary caps and contracts dictate u spend your high draft capital on a potential franchise QB if you don't have one. NE has mastered the art of salary cap management with the franchise QB in place which is why they can rebuild SB caliber teams with spare parts every season. Too little credit is given to hoodie about this aspect of his success and too much emphasis is given to Brady being a GOAT.
  7. Cleveland Browns 2018 Season Outlook

    Fair point to make however I think if a team really wants a so-called 'generational talent' they find a way to trade up for them. He has traded up to get mahommes. Still your point is valid.
  8. Cleveland Browns 2018 Season Outlook

    Dorsey has never taken a rb in the 1st rd the highest he has drafted a rb was kareem hunt and that worked outperfectly. I don't see his incentive for drafting barkley with Hyde and duke and rb talent goes deep in the draft. I would rather he does something completely insane like drafting 2 qb than draft a rb in the 1st 4 picks.
  9. Cleveland Browns 2018 Season Outlook

    I think that'sall a bunch of smoke. They don't need a rb. You have Duke+Hyde who are relatively cheap as a tandem. As much as everyone loves a stud do it all rb, the fact is teams are winning SB's with multiple rb's in the lineup
  10. Cleveland Browns 2018 Season Outlook

    I will agree there, not the most prudent cap guy when measured against the pats and packers but then again most teams are terrible at cap management
  11. Cleveland Browns 2018 Season Outlook

    If the Browns have tyrod who is by the way a QB who took his crappy team to the playoffs with less money and talent than kirk cousins. I don't understand why if the franchise think the best prospect for their future is a development guy they shouldnt go with him. Is the purpose of the draft to take the consensus favorite or the guy you think is the best player for your team? The browns have the luxury of putting 2yrs into the rookie knowing they have him on a cheap contract for 5yrs. So time does play into their favor. The question is will the owner be patient with that development process? The fact that many people have a view on which QB is the best prospect given specific scenarios tells me that there is no lock as to who will be the best. 5yr rookie contract #1 vs #4 will be semantics in a year, except for the team that selected a total bust.
  12. Willie Snead 2018 Season Outlook

    I can't honestly remember the last time I looked at a matchup where i saw my opponent with a Ravens player in his lineup and I thought I may lose against that player.
  13. New York Giants 2018 Season Outlook

    I'm not obsessed with you, I'm infatuated with you. There is a difference. I find your preseason contributions to be quite entertaining.
  14. Dez Bryant 2018 Season Outlook

    Can you imagine Dez catching long bombs in tight windows from AJM making the crowds go wild? Can you imagine that?
  15. Willie Snead 2018 Season Outlook

    He's worth a waiver flyer as is the rest of the Ravens wr group which ahs been a complete waste of draft capital last couple of seasons.
  16. New York Giants 2018 Season Outlook

    Does anyone have a theory as to why @CyberneticGhostOfXMasPast NYG's insider "sources" are always reporting what has already reported and discussed by bloggers, tweeter,analysts and beat writers? Don't 'sources" tell you something that is about to happen or that no one else is reporting?
  17. Cleveland Browns 2018 Season Outlook

    Now you guys are going to force me to go find clips on jeff to see if he was really that good
  18. New York Giants 2018 Season Outlook

    if I had to speculate i would take a shot on the rb position but I'll let you do the research on this one. You may actually learn something and share some facts with us rather than merely stating your opinion as fact.
  19. New York Giants 2018 Season Outlook

    let's extend this one a bit. . .he didnt play a SINGLE SNAP last season. The HC benched the franchise QB who had the longest current streak of NFL starts with Geno Smith and the owner signed off on it. The kid didnt get a single snap even in blowouts and meaningless games.
  20. New York Giants 2018 Season Outlook

    Answer this question that i will rephrase with your last point. Name a top 5 drafted RB who started and won any of the last 23 SB's?
  21. New York Giants 2018 Season Outlook

    No you are making an irrelevant technical point in order to make a nonsensical argument. Swapping a #1 vs 4 pick on draft day to get the QB you want does not change the point that you drafted a top 5 and pick who won you a SB. Eli was the #1 pick of the draft and if the Giants loved Rivers more they would have never traded him on draft day. They wanted Eli and traded up to get him because they didnt have the #1 pick going into draft night. So stop trying to 'win' a debate or be 'right' by obfuscating facts and belaboring pointless technicalities. The Giants traded up to get the #1 pick Eli and gave up the #4 pick and some other picks to get him on draft day. Eli won 2 SB's. Focusing on whether they called his name at the podium as their selection is irrelevant. they got the #1 pick on draft day. I'll cut you some slack, how about the the following: The Giants won 2 SB's with the #1 pick of the draft QB Eli manning.
  22. New York Giants 2018 Season Outlook

    So how does that measure up to Reggie bush being the only RB since 2000 taken in the 1st rd who has a SB ring with the team who drafted him? I would say a team is smarter if they spend ZERO 1st rd picks on a rb and can still make it to the SB
  23. New York Giants 2018 Season Outlook

    You traded a top 4 draft pick for a top 4 draft pick on draft day, stop trying to be clever about it. Rivers not winning a SB is irrelevant. Eli won 2.. Who cares if it took Simms 6yrs he still won a SB. Fact: Two of your SB winning QB's were 1st rd draft picks. Stop it!
  24. New York Giants 2018 Season Outlook

    So let's cut through all of your opinion and focus on the economics of the situation 1. Eli is a UFA in 2020 2. Webb is on year 2 of his 4yr rookie contract UFA 2021 3. 1st rd QB rookie contract is 5yrs Webb should be taking over from Eli this season if he is really talented. So if you want to see what you have with Webb he has to play this year or next at the latest because the contract becomes an issue and u may also have a QB controversey with Eli. You take a rookie you have 5yrs to figure it out and he can take over from Eli in 2020 and u will have him cheap contract for a couple of years after that. if none of the options work out then you have to sign a vet FA for big $$$ or you can try to find oil in the later rounds of the draft next 2yrs
  25. New York Giants 2018 Season Outlook

    Amazing how you have to explain to guys the value of a franchise QB and that drafting a QB in the 1st rd gives u a higher probability of securing a franchise QB. Obviously all of these teams who have been drafting QB's in the 1st round for decades are stupid right?
