  1. Then why on earth give a 29yo bit-part gimmick player $21m with $16m guaranteed rather than let him play on his tender? Who are they bidding against? And in what galaxy is he comparable to the league MVP?
  2. Serious question: if the NFL was being re-drafted tomorrow, would you take Cam Newton or Derek Carr first? They won't do it as they don't have the cap space, and it would mutiny the locker room, but I'd probably take Cam.
  3. So why only pay him $21m over 2 years? If he's *that* good, should be on $35m+. Unless he's not a bigger Lamar Jackson. Which would make sense, as his current body of work makes him qualified to do up Lamar's boots.
  4. If you're on this train when Carroll finally decides to #freerussellwilson, hold on for the ride. He still remains criminally under-used.
  5. You mean like the BBC, which is owned by the British Government? Or wait, are they communists too? There was a time when calling out "are you a communist?" was cool. It was the 1940's/50's. This record you're playing is beyond broken. You speak in hyperbole, you throw lots of adjectives around, there's lots of FEAR and CONTROL and BIG CAPITAL LETTERS but there is little to no coherent argument or FACT.
  6. If you're looking at me as "remain on lockdown" sector, the point has always been that the spread of COVID was out-stripping the ability to treat it, and that social distancing alone was not going to be enough of a measure in the short term to stop it. Additional measures were going to be required to slow it down - hence the lockdown. Now that there has been restriction of people movement (and hopefully R <1), the restrictions can be removed if there exists the ability to contact-trace and test anybody who wants it (i.e. try and determine a life R-value as best as possible). If the R-value starts to spiral out of control again, the restrictions return. It's never been about killing jobs or economies, it's been about getting the fire under control. Nobody - and I mean, nobody - wants to see people out of jobs, in economic ruin, in blind panic. Our (my?) concern was that the alternate was worse. Lockdown sucks balls. Massive, giant hairy man-balls. If the testing is there, and the contact-tracing is there, and people can be trusted (!) to behave in a responsible manner, let's get back to it.
  7. When did Russian bots take such an interest in fantasy football? Is this how the 2020 election is going to be influenced? It's certainly a creative approach. I bet they don't even know what they're getting outraged at anymore, just that the MO this morning was "outrage!" and that whatever happens, it's my fault.
  8. There's multiple parts to this essentially. He is the victim of: 1) Bad timing in free agency with teams being unable to evaluate him and his injury history 2) A large number of QB's drafted in the last three years enlisted as teams' starters now: since 2017 that list reads Trubisky, Watson, Mahomes, Mayfield, Darnold, Allen, Jackson, Murray, Jones, Haskins, Lock, Stidham, Minshew. Over a third of the league has guys playing on rookie deals. This year has included Burrow, Tagovailoa, Herbert 3) Arguably an increased appreciation of the salary cap and how you're better placed to win on a rookie deal, or by paying an above-average QB, but not paying the mediocre one. Not that Cam is mediocre but if he isn't back to above-average starting health and talent his contract will never justify it 4) The few open spots this year got taken quickly by guys with better bodies of work: Rivers in Indianapolis, Brady in Tampa. Should Chicago have gone for him instead? Perhaps, but the timing again got awful with them trading for Foles before he was released. So at this junction I don't see where Cam fits. He's too talented and expensive to be a backup, and his CV doesn't lend well to a Jameis Winston-type contract. Does Jerry Jones bring him in for a visit? I don't know the internet could handle that.
  9. Probably never. BB probably wants to see what he has in Stidham, and won't be crushingly unhappy if they bottom-out and take Trevor Lawrence followed by a treasure-trove of comp picks to move around the board next year. Reload and reset. I don't see how Cam fits into those plans. Nobody wants to commit $$$ to him until they can put him through a physical and see what they're buying.
  10. The more comprehensive analysis to do this year is whether RB's in rounds 3-6 this year are on-par with their WR colleagues. In previous years I have gone WR heavy in those spots and RB's towards the back end; with so many new backfields and new QBs this year I might re-think that approach. Which other backfields do you want a part of? I remember a few years ago the Doug Martin/Peyton Barber approach to locking up TB's backfield took a 5th and 8th-round pick I think when Martin had a few game suspension. If I could take Marlon Mack and Jonathan Taylor with similar picks, or Mostert and someone else in SF, these would be ideal.
  11. Ok. What part of the graph is incorrect? Critically evaluate it for me. Be specific.
  12. Happy to take some more time if you'd like? Is there some kind of parallel reality you're from where facts don't matter and you can keep making outlandish accusations I have to keep addressing?
