  1. Agree. Just watch some of the GB playoff losses over Rodgers career…. Multiple onside kicks, blocked kicks, blocked punts, onside kicks, etc. They possibly would have been to another 2-3 Super Bowls in the last 11 years with good special teams. It certainly matters in the modern NFL.
  2. Not concerned yet. Rookie CBs take their lumps. That’s going to be compounded by learning on the fly against Diggs. Heck, even Gilmore looked like garbage his first four games in NE and he was a top 5-10 corner already.
  3. Is he just trying to get paid, or does he want contract security in case the Browns end up making more poor cap choices? With Watson potentially suspended Hunt has more leverage now than he’ll have later….. especially after Watson starts playing and Hunts numbers drop.
  4. It’s not. However, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Elam have a similar rookie season to Eric Stokes (GA) last year…. Looked bad in preseason trying to guard Davante Adams, looked better against lesser competition, got burned bad a few times by top WRs but displayed talent, everything started to come together by the last third of the season. It takes a season for a lot of these corners to round into form. As Fans we often want instant success, but displayed talent and trending upwards with experience is the more realistic expectation.
  5. Makes perfect sense…. That touch of extra relief and joy that we saw with Cubs fans a few years ago…. That.
  6. It’s all wild. Rice’s 2002 season was playing beside Tim Brown who was coming off of 9 consecutive 1000 yard seasons. Reggie White played with both Clyde Simmons and Paup who each topped out with 19 and 17.5 sacks in a season (respectively). Very hard to figure out who’s actually overrated, but the discussion is entertaining. Over Epenesa for sure.
  7. Bryce Paup…. He never had more than 7.5 sacks in a season when he wasn’t playing with Bruce Smith or Reggie White. 🤷‍♂️
  8. That average goes up if you factor in that he missed half of 2020 after being IR’d with a knee injury he tried playing with for four games, and he missed a game or two last year with Covid.
  9. It’ll be interesting to see how Dorsey uses all of the weapons. I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if he utilizes TEs in his game plans a lot more than Daboll. Dorsey certainly benefited from throwing to Jeremy Shockey and Kellen Winslow in college… not to mention handing off to Gore, Portis, and McGahee. Football has certainly changed in the last 20 years, but there might be some interesting things that carry over from his playing experience.
  10. Because it would be freaking hilarious if a QB they passed on in the draft for Mayfield became their franchise QB going forward…. It would also make the Dolphins and Cardinals look bad too if Rosen looks good. Personally, IDC…. But laughing at Haslam is always a good time.
  11. I don’t think anyone other than Titans or Ohio State fans consider George a generational talent. He was a very good back, but not the best of his time…. Kind of like Ricky Williams or Jamal Anderson. There were a lot of “hall of very good” running backs during that stretch. That said, keep in mind that the rules and defenses were built differently twenty plus years ago. Run and stop the run we’re much more prolific philosophies. Thurman Thomas only averaged 4.2 y/a. A lot of the guys we remember as actual freaks often only had 3 or maybe 5 dominant years ( a la Earl Campbell)…. Which is why Barry Sanders averaging 5 y/a over his career is insanely impressive. It’s also why I do give Curtis Martin and Frank Gore some props…. They just maintained that yardage and Y/A every single year no matter what for an extended period on several teams. That’s impressive…. HoF impressive? IDK, but it’s impressive none the less.
