    Logan Thomas is a poor man's Jason Croom who is a poor man's JAG.

    Charles Clay Released

    Who could possibly imagine that a HC or OC would bring in a new offense and tell the GM what players he wants that are best for his scheme?! And then the GM would get a guy they want! OMG, the outrage!!
  3. It was all over this afternoon, culled from officials of NFL teams who would know.

  5. The more money he settles for, the much stronger his case is for proving that the NFL is corrupt, which surely serves social justice.

    Charles Clay Released

    I didn't read the entire thread but it should be remembered that Clay was brought in for a specific reason and offense, the one being designed by Greg Roman, which featured exactly the kind of player Clay was. Injuries hurt Clay, and Roman and his offense didn't ever get off the ground or last all that long. But Clay surely did not do as well as he should have, even playing in other styles.
  7. Yep. That is why before every time I call jw a weasel, I first look for another person who agrees that he is a weasel, which doesn't take long. jw
  8. In lieu of the estimates of $60-80m that Kaep just got in settling the case against the NFL, it's pretty brilliant of him to be asking for $20m a season to the AAF. He can then argue if no one pays him that he could have signed for $15m, like he was making in the NFL and then get the kind of settlement he did. If some idiot agrees to pay him that, he has even more ammo against the NFL. I guarantee that was part of his representatives equation, and it was really shrewd.
  9. The $60-80m estimate came from officials of NFL teams, they would be in a position to know and have an educated guess. I would bet that number is pretty accurate.

    That is not mutually exclusive from what we were talking about and what I was saying. All I was responding to was the fact that Beane and McDermott "knew" none of these guys were good and yet signed, and played and put their prize draft pick with them knowing they all suck. There is not a chance that happened. They thought KB and Zay and Kerley and probably a couple other guys were legitimate NFL players that would produce enough to win some games with a solid defense.

    Not a chance they knew that. They thought some of those guys were very good and would produce, and they were wrong. The same way that McDermott thought Peterout was pretty good and would produce and was wrong.

    What do you want to see this offseason: DRAFT

    I have said this before but it needs repeating. Every round of every draft by every team in every sport is the exact same dynamic and decision. You look at the top 1-3 overall players on your board at that specific time, then weigh those 1-3 against the top 1-3 players at position of need, and see how much the BPA guys are better than the PON guys, and then take that equation against how many players are left in PONs on the board. There is no such thing EVER as just taking the best player available automatically and there is no such thing EVER as just taking a player based on need. Every GM everywhere every time does the exact same thing. They will come to different conclusions obviously, but there is no such thing as taking the best player available without considering him against those other players. I do agree with your theories on stars and playmakers though.

    Yep! And one of them was almost good!
