  1. Defensive Player of the Year odds

    Vegas may have made a penny, but possibly lost many pennies under that hypothesis from professional and even casual betters who saw a tilted board and avoided the board altogether. Newton's third law of motion certainly applies to futures odds, as Hardy's spot on the board affected others, including eventual winner Watt. Vegas DOES (usually) win in the end, but savvy bettors are constantly scouring the odds looking for value (which can be found for a variety of reasons), and the balance must constantly be kept while also trying to lure people in.
  2. Defensive Player of the Year odds

    Fwiw Hardy had 12-1 odds AFTER the incident with Holder (May) and kangaroo court (July) as this article (August) proves. Even VEGAS was fooled with the hypocritical tomfoolery!!!!!!!!!!!!!! https://www.sportsinsights.com/blog/2014-nfl-defensive-player-year-odds/
  3. http://www.oddsshark.com/nfl/nfl-defensive-player-year-betting-odds Entertainment only, but interesting. Luke at 10-1, KK at 33-1, Star and TD at 100-1. More represented than any other team. I would love to know the Hardy odds since Manziel was on the MVP odds board.

    Bruce Irvin is very noteworthy. He's no HOFer, but was a very unique X-factor for them given Cam's uniqueness. Replace him with a JAG in the 3 games we lost from 2012-14 with him and we win AT LEAST one of those with that simple change alone.

    I'd be remiss too if I didn't mention the 4 80 yard TD drives in the first game, a more impressive stats sheet (minus the three turnovers) the the playoff loss January 2015, etc.
  7. BR Ranks Top 10 Defenses of 2016

    The most underrated stat is zero 3 and outs in the 2nd half when we literally squeezed the butt cheeks out of our offense. ZERO 3 and outs.
  8. Good lord....

    They will start five new starters at each particular OL position. I truly think people are oblivious to how bad it appears on paper. Britt is their starting center as of now.
  9. Good lord....

    People, including myself, pooh pooh the Cowboys for many reasons, but the fact is that a gimp Cowboys lead by Matt Cassel nearly beat a healthy, capable Seahawks team with 10 days rest last year, and gobsmacked the Seahawks in Seattle in 2014.
  10. Good lord....

    Proves what YOU know, given that Clark was moved to LB.. http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2016/04/20/frank-clark-now-listed-as-a-linebacker-after-dropping-15-pounds/ Reed was drafted to replace Mebane as a run stuffing DT after we drafted their target Butler.
  11. Good lord....

    I said we were entering the greatest dynasty of the salary cap era and that I wouldn't trade Cam for anyone in the history of football after the 2013 Cardinals game and 1-3 start. I was also in BOA when DeAngelo fumbled in 2013, giving those guys (although we didn't know it at the time) HFA and the Super Bowl. THAT team had a bad OL, and it almost cost them games against the bottom of the barrel Texans, Bucs, and Rams. But as bad as THAT OL was (Carpenter, Giacomini, McQuistan, Sweezy, Okung, and Unger), it was LIGHT YEARS better than this year's on paper. That team also had not gone five years without a first round pick that contributed, and had lesser known key contributors (ex. Tony McDaniel (recovered the fumble)) that are long gone, and other guys that were in their prime (Clemons, Browner) who, in an act of living in the past desperation, they've resigned this offseason. For the love of Pete (pun intended or not) man, I've said they're a fringe playoff team, due to their strengths. But their MAJOR weaknesses will have them fighting again for a spot in January. Do not be surprised if their QB has been carted off the field or if they're on the outside looking in at the turn of the New Year.
  12. Good lord....

    If we can't base the future on the past, what can we base it on? We knew that our OL was SIGNIFICANTLY better at the end of 2014 than the beginning/middle of that year. The guys they're counting on have either showed NOTHING or are proven bums. GMan himself says it's not pixie dust or magic, big men allow you to compete, don't need to be Nostradamus.
  13. Good lord....

    Minnesota isn't a division rival and missed a chip shot for the win. We were 17-2, they were 11-7. You are what your record says you are, and they're a fringe playoff team who is decending based on blowing five years worth of first round picks, losing multiple key contributors, and having an all time bad OL on paper-which is what I said to start with.
  14. Good lord....

    Again, watch Case Kenum and the Rams IN Seattle, know they've lost their two best OL from THAT, and tell me if I'm wrong. I also don't know if there's even one other team that will have no first round pick from 2011-2015 that'll contribute in 2016.
  15. Good lord....

    Big men win games. They went 5 years without having a first round pick that'll contribute. They're yesterday's news.
