  1. Ball Velocity: Does It Matter?

    One off readings don't mean a whole lot. I'd be more interested in seeing how a QB's arm-strength changes as the game goes on.
  2. Odell Beckham Jr 2018 Season Outlook

    Are you vicariously living through him?
  3. Odell Beckham Jr 2018 Season Outlook

    To be fair to Beckham, if you look at the first 3 seasons instead of 4, he was 2nd all time in total rec yards. 4th all time total TDs. The leader, is obviously Randy Moss (GOAT). But it's not the most objective statistic, since many great WRs didn't start with 3 full seasons - i.e. Antonio Brown, Calvin Johnson, to name a few. Is Beckham at 26 more talented than Antonio Brown (or Calvin Johnson) was at the same age? Maybe, but he'll have to prove it by putting up a 1600+ yard season. Saying something like, "best start ever by a receiver" isn't as meaningful as one would think. Teams don't even pay for past performance, they pay for whatever they think you can do in the future. Nice company to be in though, and it makes for a good headline. That said, never in a million years would ANY team trade 2 firsts (let alone a 1.01 and 1.04!!!!!!!!!) for Beckham.
  4. New York Jets 2018 Season Outlook

    Jets won't offer $30 million to begin with. They'll low-ball and work their way up, as they should. Save every million you can. Try to sell him the franchise. These rumours are simply a game of cat and mouse, fake signaling between franchise and agent.
  5. Doug Martin 2018 Season Outlook

    He is a good back, but very o-line dependent. Since the Bucs never fixed the interior of the offensive line, Martin couldn't run effectively between the tackles. I don't think his game has changed a great deal.
  6. New York Jets 2018 Season Outlook

    Browns are out of the race. Bookies aren't even giving odds on Cousins to the Browns. Today we had Joe Thomas confirm what everyone was thinking:
  7. New York Jets 2018 Season Outlook

    They appointed Bates to OC with a view to luring Cousins. QBs enjoy familiarity, and this has to be a major consideration for Cousins if he is to sign with the Jets.
  8. Rob Gronkowski 2018 Season Outlook

    Not only that, but his family is well off; his brothers have played in the NFL, dad has a successful gym equipment business. There is zero reason for him to stick around. Only thing left for him is his legacy. He's probably the greatest tight end of all time, or at least top 3. So it really comes down to whether he wants another superbowl. Or hall of fame credentials. My guess is, he'll go when Tom Brady does. When that happens, nobody knows. Brady wants another Superbowl, and he won't get one without Gronk.
  9. Travis Kelce 2018 Season Outlook

    Shouldn't see a huge difference if Mahomes runs the same offense. Andy Reid's tight end fetish is well established. Kelce isn't an average tight end either, he gets separation like a WR. QB's best friend.
  10. Dion Lewis 2018 Season Outlook

    Does Dion know what he's worth? If he low-balls himself, its not an issue. Most players are happy to sacrifice a few million just to stay on the same team. The Patriots expect their players to choose a stable, winning environment over marginally greater financial reward. Dion was a nobody before the Patriots picked him up, and i'd be surprised if he chooses to go elsewhere. He wouldn't be the same player on another offense.
  11. Question about titles

    It's based on your reputation.
  12. XFL IS BACK BABY!!!!!!

    Goddell thinks the NFL has maxed out its growth in the United States. He might be thinking that football can't possibly evolve further than it has, that we've sort of hit the summit. In the absence of any real competition, it is the undisputed king of American sport, after all. Foreign soil is the next frontier. Is he right? Is there any way to continue growing NFL in the United States?
  13. XFL IS BACK BABY!!!!!!

    NFL is a pan-American obsession. The ratings drop is insignificant when you consider football's complete domination over all other televised sports. Ratings of Thursday Night games probably match the NBA finals. The league will dominate for a long time. It might change a bit as time goes on, but its undoubtedly the king of professional sports. Vince will have to aim for a niche market; his league will be the TNA to the NFL's WWE.

  15. Arizona Cardinals 2018 Outlook

    Easy gig for any QB. You basically run just 2 plays: 1. Check down to David Johnson 2. Fake check down to David Johnson, pass to Fitzgerald in addition to just handing off to David Johnson 30 times a game. This job shouldn't pay more than $10 million.
