  1. If we were to actually make a trade, I doubt it would be anything more than GB sending a conditional 7th round pick for him, where the condition is that he has to make their 53-man roster.
  2. The Giants are not trading Saquon Barkley. Even if they were, it wouldn’t be for a late 2nd round pick. Please stop.
  3. I think John Brown still has value and can be an asset to a new team. I don't think anyone is trading a 3rd round pick for the right to pick up his contract. I believe Brown will end up being cut by the Bills for the cap savings, and that he will be signed by a new team fairly quickly at a more reasonable contract.
  4. Great work going through all of this. I think it's a really beneficial exercise to help give fans a realistic perspective, and to understand that you can't just re-sign everyone. One minor point that I disagreed with was the value of John Brown in the trade market. You said yourself that he has age, injury history, and a cap hit that are all against him. I find it extremely unlikely that a team would trade a pick as high as a 3rd rounder for him. I also believe D.J. Chark is definitely a better player going into the 2021-2022 season. You could also argue that Laviska Shenault is going to be better than Brown for the next season as well. I will always like John Brown for his contributions over the past two seasons, but there's no way someone is trading anything significant for him at this point in his career, and with his demonstrated history of not being healthy much of the time. Regardless of my difference of opinion on that one item, nicely done!
  5. If anyone actually watched Zach Ertz play this year, you would see that he's not the same player. He's more "name" than anything else at this point. He's also still under contract for 2021 and is not currently a free agent. Sure, the Eagles will likely cut him, but until that happens, I'm not sure why we are speculating about signing him. This is like that thread the other day where someone suggested signing Kareem Hunt even though he is under contract through the 2022 season. Does no one bother to do a tiny bit of research before throwing ideas out there? Regarding Saquon, there is no point talking about it. The proposed trade doesn't make any sense and the Giants would never do that. I don't even think Madden would allow that.
  6. I've only used fresh wings, not frozen. I'm lucky enough to have a Wegmans nearby and they always have fresh pre-cut wings available. I rinse them all in the sink first and then pat them dry. Then I cook them in the air fryer (necessary times and temps can really vary depending on the model). You have to be careful to not put too many in at once if your air fryer isn't big enough. It's key that you allow for air to circulate all around the wing to get the crispiness, so sometimes I just make two batches back-to-back to ensure that I only have one layer of wings in the fryer basket at once. I also always make sure to flip them halfway through.
  7. I strongly recommend investing in an air fryer. No one has good wings around me where I live now, so I make my own, and they turn out awesome. Just buy pre-cut chicken wings, air fry them up to be nice and crispy on the outside, and toss them in mixture of Original Franks and butter. Dip in blue cheese and wash down with some Blue. Problem solved.
  8. I know a few people have already stated this, but just to be clear - Kareem Hunt is under contract through 2022, and Nick Chubb is under contract through 2021, so neither of them are available to sign this offseason. If we are talking Free Agent RBs for this offseason, it isn't pretty. The best of the bunch is probably Kenyan Drake. Other guys who are currently slated to be free agents include Le'Veon Bell, Todd Gurley, Leonard Fournette, Tevin Coleman, James White, Mike Davis, Matt Breida, and a bunch of other guys who aren't upgrades. With Singletary and Moss under contract for the foreseeable future, I don't know that we are going to bring someone in. You typically want your 3rd RB contributing on special teams. If you really want an upgrade, you're going to need to look to the first couple rounds of the draft.
  9. I like having the variety of playing four different NFC teams every year. Especially as someone who no longer lives in Buffalo, it would suck to know that the Bills are only going to play in a given NFC stadium once every 30 years (each NFC team is played once every 15 years, and assuming home field is alternated).
  10. If C.J. Spiller, exactly as he was coming out of college, was in the 2020 draft, I'd expect him to go sometime in the 2nd or early 3rd round (given some of the other talented RBs available in this class). If we are looking at a generic draft occurring now compared to 10 years ago, I'd say he'd have a chance to go late 1st. In the 2018 draft, if guys like Rashaad Penny and Sony Michel were late 1st round picks given who they were as prospects at the time, I think C.J. Spiller would've been right up there in that discussion if he was also part of that draft class.
  11. I was really aiming that response to those who are advocating for drafting a back. It's not necessarily what I would do. In fact, if we did receive a 3rd rounder (the likelihood of it being a 3rd is rightly up for debate), I'd be an advocate for using that pick on a different position. I wouldn't feel the need to draft an RB at all if we had Singletary and David Johnson.
  12. David Johnson is 28 years old, and doesn't turn 29 until December. While I agree that he is past his prime, even last year he was still a pretty good receiving option. I'm completely on board with the trade if we can get an extra 3rd round pick plus a veteran receiving back in DJ to backup Singletary for the cost of some cap space. For those who would rather draft a back, why not do both? What if we used the 3rd rounder acquired in the trade to draft a cost-controlled RB for the next four years?
  13. It was hilarious. Loved it. Why do people keep saying it was the playbook or a playsheet? It's pretty clearly just the pictures that get taken of each play during the game and get reviewed on the sideline. I guess it helps get clicks.
  14. If you bet $100, you will win $500 in profit, so you'll get back $600 when you cash your winning ticket. Put another way, you'll get 5x your initial bet in profit.
