  1. Miami Dolphins 2019 Outlook

    Fun fact: Noone from the Belichick coaching tree has ever won a playoff game. I'm thinking the pattern continues with this hire.
  2. We are the Champions!

    About 9 months worth of bragging rights.
  3. DeVante Parker 2018 Outlook

    Not a good route runner. No suddenness to his game. Rounds off his cuts. Very good straight line speed. High points the ball very well. Always hurt. A poor man's Alvin Harper...when healthy.
  4. Anyone have 2019 rankings?

    Bell to the Colts? Hunt to the Eagles? Ingram to the Chiefs? That would add some spice to this list.
  5. We are the Champions!

    League champion in my one and only money league 15 years running. Great group of friends and family. 3rd championship: 2004, 2013, 2018. Tip of the cap to all you champions out there.
  6. 2018 "Cool Story, Bro!" Thread

    Lost Hunt, OBJ and Gordon. Had Ingram out for 4 weeks on suspension Mixon out for 2 weeks with knee surgery Hilton out 2 weeks with hammy Michel out 2 weeks with knee sprain Had to endure a couple of Winston/Fitz benches Numerous in game injuries Traded away Conner for Hilton before week 1 Most rewarding championship ever.
  7. Joe Mixon 2018 Outlook

    He has all the skills in the world. What he needs is a new head coach or at the very least a new offensive coordinator. Bill Lazor is terrible for running backs. He was a late 3rd round pick for me in standard. Should go early 2nd in standard redrafts next year.
  8. Titans vs. Skins Gameday 12/22

    Just wow. I apologize to the entire state of Tennessee and every little league team called the Titans.
  9. Titans vs. Skins Gameday 12/22

    Tennessee reading and reacting on defense. Not forcing the issue.
  10. Titans vs. Skins Gameday 12/22

    Should have went with the Colts D.
  11. Titans vs. Skins Gameday 12/22

    How in the world did this defense stop Saquan last week?
  12. Titans vs. Skins Gameday 12/22

    A blitz vs a 4th string QB. What a novel concept.
  13. JuJu Smith-Schuster 2018 Outlook

    I'd be more hopeful if Juju was a QB, but he is not. Aaron will not be required to sprint, cut, jump and land in awkward positions while making contested catches.

    Groin Injury Recovery Timeline A relatively minor groin injury might require just three weeks of rest, while a more severe injury could require four to six weeks. A complete rupture of a groin muscle could require surgery, which comes with a recovery period of up to three months. Resting after a groin strain is critical to a successful recovery. Returning to activity too quickly could worsen the injury and will certainly extend the groin injury recovery period.
  15. C.J. Anderson 2018 Outlook

    https://www.therams.com/news/c-j-anderson-i-know-i-m-going-to-do-everything-that-i-possibly-can-this-week-to- The Rams made a late-season transaction this week, picking up veteran running back C.J. Anderson ahead of the final two games and playoffs. Anderson joins the Rams after spending five seasons with the Broncos, having signed with the club as an undrafted free agent back in 2013. The veteran back most recently touted the rock for the Panthers in 2018 — playing in nine games and taking 24 carries for 104 yards. All indications point to head coach Sean McVay looking to Anderson as the first back off the bench behind running back Todd Gurley. And despite his comments on expecting Gurley to be ready for Arizona, the head coach says Anderson can make an immediate impact. “You can see him playing a role as early as this week,” McVay said. “Really impressed just being around him in the initial 24 hours, or whatever it's been.” McVay said his system is not that different from the running back’s previous experiences, and Anderson agreed, sitting in front of his brand-new locker at the Rams practice facility in Thousand Oaks, Calif. “Kind of knowing McVay, his background, where he came from, you know the Gruden’s and the Shanahan's, things like that,” Anderson said, explaining his tie to McVay’s style. “Obviously I was with [former Broncos head coach] Gary Kubiak for two years, so some crossover over there and what they do — just a little bit different.” While the terminology and a few adjustments here or there may take some getting used to as a member of the 11-3 NFC West Champions, Anderson says he’s ready to fill whatever role he’s expected to. “Whatever they need me to do,” Anderson said. “I know I’m going to do everything that I possibly can this week to be ready to play. McVay and teammates and everybody can feel comfortable with me out there if that opportunity presents itself. But until then I’m just going to keep my head down and keep pushing.” Anderson provides some seasoned insurance in the second running back spot for McVay’s offense, as Gurley is dealing with inflammation in his left knee and second-year back Justin Davis is day to day after injuring his shoulder in Week 15 against the Eagles. Anderson’s former teammate in Denver and fellow Super Bowl 50 champion, cornerback Aqib Talib, spoke on Wednesday about what the newest Ram has to offer. “He’s a real smart player,” Talib said foremost. “Just him being there with [former Broncos quarterback] Peyton [Manning] — Peyton ain’t playing about no protection and stuff, so he’ll definitely on his P’s and Q’s as far as protections and all that. He’s a tough tackle, a real tough tackle, I’ve seen him break a lot of tackles especially at this time of the season.” Talib alluded to Anderson’s postseason experience, which might come as an added bonus to back’s support of Gurley and special attention to pass protection. “It’s huge,” Anderson said of joining a team with playoff aspirations. “These players and coaching staff and what they’ve done over the last few years — definitely have the opportunity — and I’m not saying I’m the missing piece, over the hump, I’m not saying none of that at all. But they definitely got the opportunity and to contribute any way possibly that I can is always going to be special.”
