  1. The Athletic is a quality pay site. They've found a home for number quality writers, that do a nice job.
  2. Same here, not paying for that. Oh...and our opinions here have as much merit and probability of being right as his. Too many variables to start this stuff now.
  3. At first all I noticed was red. But, as long as were going down the apparel path, what's with a shirt with a pocket and the button down collar with a suit? In a pinch go to Neiman's or Nordstroms, any one of their people in the men's department could have helped him out. Guy is a stud though, and his date makes up for any of his fashion faux pas. I guess just an extension of his "I don't give a F attitude".
  4. And how many of these guys make a NFL roster? My guess is 10 - 15%, tops. They're now ranking meaningless crap like this? Enough already.
  5. After the draft, what's the point of tearing these kids down? You can disagree with the value, position or spots they were picked, but go after the GM. My only caveat would be is if they are so low on character and have a track record of being a trash human being (think Mr. Crab legs, Hill, Mixon ect..) These kids have plenty of time as a pro to get criticized or called out moving forward. Once they start collecting a check they're fair game.
  6. I'm always a little surprised that people still listen to this crap, or watch it on ESPN. So much better content is available now to all of us, with hosts/journalist/entertainers/ex-atheletes that are rational and grounded in sound thought. There primary objective isn't to polarize half their listeners. These entertainment sports networks are all cloaked in a veneer substance. No different than what is being passed off as news, when it's really just inexpensive opinion content that changes with the wind.
  7. With the influx of young talent on offense, why would/should this team keep McCoy? He's done after this year. I know you could say the same about Gore, but for some reason they obviously feel he's a good option to help develop the younger guys. A guy like Gore has earned the right to say when he's done. He didn't sign here thinking he could be a camp casualty. Plus he's really inexpensive. At this stage McCoy isn't going to bring anything special to the table. Obviously he's expensive, too, but throw that out. Good to great teams seem to grow together at the core positions. Faulk was much better than McCoy has ever been and the Colts were willing cut the cord.
  8. Lots of really solid talent on the board. I know they won't draft him, but I'm still a little disappointed Miles Sanders won't be a Bill. He's not that far off from the talent level Barkley brought to the Giants. Very happy with Oliver, it's all good whatever they do from here out.
  9. His talent vs headache quotient has tilted in area of he's not worth it. He's a documented idiot.
  10. When your not a premier destination in the NFL you have to do the little things right. When you lose the battle of location, location, location, you'd think they'd want to do anything they could to show themselves being committed to doing the very best they can for their players. That includes sports science, amenities and staff. This all is very important to organizational philosophy and culture. Why would the Bills not add funds to what Erie County is spending and not purchase peer reviewed high quality surface?
  11. Time to show MeSean the door. Way better in his own head than he currently is.
  12. It's the going market for elite QB play. He's way more worthy than the guy in Minnesota. He's been the Seattle offense since his second year. He should have two rings.
  13. Show me a upper 1st round prospect with a bad highlight tape.
  14. You get it. I've been banging this drum the whole thread. Like a d!ck, got so frustrated I lashed out in a couple of posts. I think we have a fan base like others have stated; buy all the hype and BS the NFL sells us on these potential busts, chumps and jackoffs. We just have to hit the lotto on a couple of these players, that's all the draft is. Every year we have to hear from the talking heads how some guy is the next big thing. How often do these predictions come to fruition?
  15. You're a man obsessed. I give you credit for persistence. The production you're referencing isn't something that has just come along. TE isn't just becoming a premiere position! ANYONE WHO CATCHES THE BALL HAS SEEN AN INCREASE IN PRODUCTION IN THIS NFL!!! Any analyst willing to spend 5 minutes looking into things would see this has been ten years in the making, Look at the individual seasons going back 10 years to more recent that these players had. This isn't the second coming of Bill Walsh's philosophy and the WC offense. What you are saying is common knowledge amongst anyone who really watches the game. I though you'd find this interesting too: https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/04/08/nfl-non-mock-draft-first-round-fmia-peter-king/ 2007: Rk Player Team Pos Rec Yds Avg Yds/G Lng TD 20+ 40+ 1st 1st% FUM 1 Tony Gonzalez KC TE 99 1,172 11.8 73.2 31 5 14 0 59 59.6 0 2 Jason Witten DAL TE 96 1,145 11.9 71.6 53 7 12 2 56 58.3 1 3 Kellen Winslow CLE TE 82 1,106 13.5 69.1 49 5 17 1 56 68.3 2 4 Antonio Gates SD TE 75 984 13.1 61.5 49T 9 15 1 54 72.0 0 2009: Rk Player Team Pos Rec Yds Avg Yds/G Lng TD 20+ 40+ 1st 1st% FUM 1 Dallas Clark IND TE 100 1,106 11.1 69.1 80T 10 11 3 59 59.0 1 2 Jason Witten DAL TE 94 1,030 11.0 64.4 69 2 11 2 48 51.1 0 3 Tony Gonzalez ATL TE 83 867 10.4 54.2 27 6 4 0 54 65.1 0 4 Antonio Gates SD TE 79 1,157 14.6 72.3 56 8 18 1 61 77.2 1 2011: Rk Player Team Pos Rec Yds Avg Yds/G Lng TD 20+ 40+ 1st 1st% FUM 1 Jimmy Graham NO TE 99 1,310 13.2 81.9 59 11 18 2 74 74.7 1 2 Rob Gronkowski NE TE 90 1,327 14.7 82.9 52T 17 22 3 69 76.7 0 3 Brandon Pettigrew DET TE 83 777 9.4 48.6 27 5 7 0 37 44.6 0 4 Tony Gonzalez ATL TE 80 875 10.9 54.7 30 7 8 0 53 66.3 0 5 Aaron Hernandez NE TE 79 910 11.5 65.0 46 7 12 2 46 58.2 1 Top 10 in 2015: Rk Player Team Pos Rec Yds Avg Yds/G Lng TD 20+ 40+ 1st 1st% FUM 1 Delanie Walker TEN TE 94 1,088 11.6 72.5 61T 6 13 2 52 55.3 0 2 Jordan Reed WAS TE 87 952 10.9 68.0 32 11 14 0 54 62.1 3 3 Gary Barnidge CLE TE 79 1,043 13.2 65.2 40 9 16 1 52 65.8 0 4 Greg Olsen CAR TE 77 1,104 14.3 69.0 52 7 20 1 52 67.5 1 4 Jason Witten DAL TE 77 713 9.3 44.6 35 3 4 0 36 46.8 1 6 Zach Ertz PHI TE 75 853 11.4 56.9 60 2 11 2 39 52.0 1 7 Benjamin Watson NO TE 74 825 11.1 51.6 46 6 13 1 42 56.8 1 8 Rob Gronkowski NE TE 72 1,176 16.3 78.4 76T 11 22 5 52 72.2 0 8 Travis Kelce KC TE 72 875 12.2 54.7 42T 5 10 1 40 55.6 2 10 Heath Miller PIT TE 60 535 8.9 35.7 27 2 5 0 29 48.3 0
