Be sure to clean the Popeye's bag out of your car before you park at the stadium.

Do not trade away future #1 draft picks unless you are certain the Talent will be that good.

My reply was more targeted at the first post but I only added you cause you called them mostly reaches. Chill out.

I think a general rule is not to act like a troll and then tell someone to chill out for reacting to the tension you caused. I was calm, just slowly shaking my head at your need to disprove that which you did not understand.

In general, a team moves up to address one particular need (or to get a particular player they fell in love with) before someone else with a similar need picks. That is reaching, most of the time. By trading down, however, a team is willing to drop and usually takes the best player available at several positions. These teams usually has several needs, but not necessarily. These teams have gotten better value, historically--not better players---better value.

Even with your example, the Bucs took Barron very high (considered by many to be a mid to low first rounder, but the market for S caused them to reach above other teams--the Panthers included--who might have taken a Safety). ,Martin had a good year, but their need at RB caused them to reach in the draft to get him--most sources had him low first round, early second. The fact that he had a good year does not mean that the Bucs did not reach--it meant they got lucky. Value in the 2012 draft is not based on performance in the 2012 season. So, your point reveals 2 reaches.

Free Agents! Sign them, no not scrubs like Nakamura. I mean guys like Vincent Jackson, real players. Ofcourse, after the cap is fixed.

    • Sunday I was too annoyed and busy to post reasons he was wrong, by Monday he was telling everyone bye. Lol Honestly I think that was the most outraged I've ever gotten about anything on this forum. Even more than someone saying Jake Delorme sucks, back in 04 lol Its kind of mind-boggling someone who can read and write was truely blaming the girl for being rape. 
    • NFL Network is showing the Carolina / Giants game from our 2015 season.  I'm just watching the tail end where Beckham scored on Norman and it showed Cam's "I got this" nod. Man, what a great drive.  In 2015, we simply played with more urgency, hunger, and the drive to be the best. Cam had the confidence because everyone was playing as hard as they could.   Going into 2017, if this team can get hungry again, they are going to be fun to watch!  The more I think about it, the dominance of that team wasn't some kind of magic, but rather in will.  They would not be denied. The good news is that they can find the motivation again.  Nothing special.  I know we're all in draft mode, but I'm feeling pretty excited for the season.  I think our team will come back motivated!
