  1. Good call, I could totally see the Rams making that sort of move...and talk about the rich getting richer.
  2. Agree that AB will probably still be playing 5 years from now, and likely at a high level still. But biggest difference compared to a TO or Moss situation, is that Brown would be eating up MAJOR cap space and will require high draft capital to obtain. TO or Moss didn't when they were shipped around. If someone trades for him, they better have the cap and coaching/locker room to handle him. That's a big combo and a big risk, given a team will have to part ways with major draft capital
  3. I was offering 1:1 before, so I agree awesome value

    How long to close the competitive gap?

    I think most would be lying if they say they didn't want Mario to sign with us several years ago. And yes, he had several really good to great seasons. Rex coming in didn't help his career, that s for sure. But he might have been on the decline anyhow, and battling through injuries. The unfortunate part, is that we shelled out a MASSIVE signing bonus and guaranteed money to get him...which then was amortized several seasons out and backloaded his contract. So by the time he was on the decline, we were stuck with so much dead cap. Smart, rationale contracts and proper cap management are things that I think Beane will do, and has already implemented. So yeah, we might make a big signing, but i don't think we'll backload contracts as heavy as prior regimes

    How long to close the competitive gap?

    Improving our record, making the playoffs, or closing the gap on contending teams, all hinges on Allen and his progress. I think that's a simple fact that most of us can agree on. Putting talent around him is step 1. Beane and McDermott already have a nice core on defense. We have the money and draft capital to pull off a similar transition to what the Bears just did....minus the Mack trade perhaps. From there, we can all just hope that Allen takes a big step forward in 2019 and continue his late year progression. I don't think anyone is resting on mediocrity. I for one am just being realistic that Allen might take a little more time to progress, given he had quite a few tendencies to correct and was very raw coming into the league. Kid works hard, he'll eventually get there, and we shouldn't be ready to jump ship after his 2nd year...thats what some of us are saying

    You must have missed teef and Scott discussing this, or it would make sense

    You mean the stuff that they didn't buy, but inherited?
  8. Good post! I agree about Allen, I think he has the upside to be very successful. Nobody will ever know what Mahomes would be doing if on another team, Bills or anyone else. We can debate it, but it's all about what this team does with current players and future opportunities

    He is not looking good, timid...but that defense is getting gashed all over
  11. No doubt Mahomes is a great Qb, perhaps the best in the NFL already. But it's easy look in the rearview mirror and say woulda coulda shoulda. Kudos to you if you thought Mahomes was going to turn out like this! If so, id like to know who you think are the premier guys in this upcoming draft

    NFC Divisional playoff: Cowboys at Rams 8:15pm Fox

    Rams dominating the run game...should we start a thread about Vander Esch being overrated? All.kidding aside, I haven't watched many cowboy games this year, but am noticing Smith calling the defensive duties at LB. Remarkable that Edmunds handled that this year, at his age
  13. I was only kidding about a college team beating an Nfl team... regarding Shaq, id still take the current Clemson defensive ends over him. An NFL off-season or two has never fixed Shaqs lack of quickness or pass rush skills. Edge setting, Shaq perhaps would be the run down man....3rd downs tho (money down), i would prefer those Clemson guys

    Is Malik Jackson worth a look?

    Adding a top tier defensive end (draft) and Malik at the 3 technique would be a very nice start to rebuilding the d line. Malik's biggest issue is effort and staying in good shape. Jacksonville's entire team disappointed this year, so a new start might do the trick. We definitely need a penetrating/pass rushing 3 technique. Harrison is more of a 'tweener', Star is Star, and hopefully Phillips is back. But we need to fill some talent gaps in free agency and Malik is certainly plenty talented
  15. Can't agree more with your last sentence. Hard to think the Steelers were at home watching week 1 of the playoffs with all their talent
