  1. Bronson Arroyo and Eric Milton were some of my favorites, unfortunate that they both played in a launching pad in Cinci.
  2. I'm actually impressed that this thread is still going on. I was in here roughly two years ago before the comeback against Atlanta and the argument was finished at that point for all intents and purposes. Manning was one of the best ever, unanimous HOFer. He beat Brady in 3 AFC title games that Tom will never get back. But Brady has been to more Super Bowls than any TEAM ever. Yada yada its a team sport, but QB is the most important position in sports. Are we going to discredit Jordan for his 6 titles because it's a team game and he had Pippen/Jackson? Of course not. Any GOAT will have great teammates and coaches around them, and sometimes those players and coaches are great BECAUSE the GOAT helped them become that. But at the end of the day this discussion can never be fact, only opinion, so dashoe and others will be able to have their own until the end of time, whether it's the minority opinion or not.
  3. When your options are Doug Martin and Cannon, not much choice. Byes and injuries have wrecked my RB position and I'm sure many others are in the same boat.
  4. Stephania Bell was talking about his injury and recovery a few weeks ago. She basically said that because he rebroke the same spot, the screw that's already in his foot from last year is acting as a stabilizer for the bone, allowing him to come back without the need for more surgery. They will need to go in during the off-season and do another procedure but because it's a 4 month recovery from that, there was no reason NOT to try having him just rest and come back, as doing another surgery would have ended his year. Is there a chance he reinjures his foot again this year? Of course, but there's also a chance he plays out the rest of the year and manages it fine. I think he will start practicing next week and we will see him for week 6.
  5. He has a bad game against the best defense in football and people are dropping him. I'm not advocating for him moving forward but it's a bit ridiculous that people are judging him based off of a game against Jacksonville.
  6. Mook took a ball between the numbers and also hit his knee into the catcher. Limped off but I'd guess he's ok.
  7. Beasting in limited opportunity. If Julio and/or Sano miss time he should get more touches.
  8. My favorite under the radar add for this week. He's got Ryan's trust and gets a decent target share even with Julio in there. And since we know Julio has a history of injuries, he has WR2 upside should that happen again.
  9. When he was coming back from the ACL tear in 2014, he started off very slow the first 4 games. It takes time for him to get back in playing shape after coming off of rehab. I would suspect by week 5 or so we see the same Gronk that we have come to expect. And ya, as stated above, if they don't over turn that TD nobody is saying a word.
  10. Unfortunate that Andrew Hawkins retired before the year, he would have been awesome as Brady's slot guy. As it stands now he doesn't have one unless they want to stick Cooks in there, and even then I don't think his skill set necessarily works in the slot, although I can't say I've done too much research on him. Amendola is likely looking at a couple week absence, though it benefits him that the game was played on Thursday, giving him added time off. Will be interesting to see if he's practicing at all next week. If he plays you have to start him in PPR at this point though, he's Brady's most trusted WR with Edelman out. Even if he leaves halfway through the game he can still put up serviceable numbers.
