#3276998 NFL Free Agency Update Thread

Posted by Boltergeist on 11 March 2015 - 11:06 AM

Looks like the Iggles are getting Ryan Matthews. What a flip job they've done. 


QB: Sam Bradford

RB: Ryan Matthews / Sproles

WR: Jordan Matthews / Huff


That has to be the most confused fanbase in the league right now. 


I can't wait for the inevitable play where Bradford and Mathews both go down for the year on a botched handoff

per the U-T's Michael Gehlken, the Flowers deal is 4 yr/36M - kind of surprised it wasn't more given the Maxwell deal in place with PHI

#3248265 One Tackle Off the Market -- Dunlap Re-signs with Chargers

Posted by Boltergeist on 21 February 2015 - 08:54 AM

Dunlap was re-signing priority one - I'm pleasantly surprised that it's not more than 7M/year. Hopefully with Dunlap now in the fold, Telesco can work on getting Flowers to stay as well

#3230738 The Katy Perry Halftime Show

Katy looked like a flying 'The More You Know' logo.


it was fitting since she did basically educate a good percentage of those under 25 of who Missy Elliott is.

#3205690 'Coaching Carousel' passes the halfway point

Posted by Boltergeist on 15 January 2015 - 12:28 AM

Think Gase would fit here? Not asking if I think he'll land here, just could he do good things if he were here.

I like that he's young and that would give Cam some new blood (life/creativity). Other than that, don't know much about him.


Gase could end up as Fox or Del Rio's OC, there's also a chance he could rejoin old buddy Mike McCoy as well (not as OC, but in some type of asst position, like we did for Chud after CLE canned him as OC).

She has some...uh...interesting qualities.




(I get the feeling Biscuit would approve)


But aside from that, her Twitter really does have some good stuff.  It's worth reading.


... and she's also refuting the report that Joe Barry got hired as the DC in DC

Looks like no Rex Ryan in the NFCS - the Bills look like Ryan's destination

I can't figure out how the Keep Gruden and Griffin III in Washington another year.  I thought those bridges were burned. 


I thought I might see Philbin gone after losing to NYJ.  Thought they had high hopes in Miami.


With Washington, when Snyder's involved I guess nothing's ever out of play



And as far as Miami's concerned - I guess Ross didn't want to go back on that he's returning speech from the Vikings postgame locker room

Ben Tate is getting a look-see in PIT today. He may go from out of a job to starting a playoff game.

What do you guys think the chances of Smith or Rivera getting axed tomorrow are, if they are on the losing side today?


Atlanta hired a search firm - that pretty much seems to say it all about Smith's hopes of keeping his job if they lose today.

#3150340 Our game just got bumped to 4:25

Posted by Boltergeist on 23 December 2014 - 12:17 AM

Americas game of the week won't be a west coast game?


DEN-OAK was the only late CBS game. I imagine they would've moved the NE game late had HFA been still in play.


So now on Sunday - early CBS will be the 6 seed race (SD-KC, JAX-HOU, BAL-CLE), early Fox is bye Felicia games.

Late CBS will have the NFCS, late Fox will be NFCN and the race for seedings.

#3148356 Most NFL media people are predicting Panthers/Falcons will be flexed to SNF

Posted by Boltergeist on 21 December 2014 - 10:06 PM

Isn't there a limit on # of Primetime games you can play? Maybe GB has hit the limit.


I think week 17 is an exempt - I'm guessing DET-GB was moved to a late game so the race for the #1 seed in the NFC would play out simultaneously

#3148168 Most NFL media people are predicting Panthers/Falcons will be flexed to SNF

Posted by Boltergeist on 21 December 2014 - 09:03 PM

I remember Rams and Seahawks a few years back in Seattle when the winner (7-9) made the playoffs was the flex final game of the year


they also took 8-7 DEN vs 7-8 SD in 08.

#3141752 Bears benching Cutler, starting Clausen

Posted by Boltergeist on 18 December 2014 - 12:18 PM

Tweet of the day (re: Clausen): With win Sunday Jimmy Clausen would tie Mark Vlasic for most victories (2) by NFL QB named for a brand of pickle.



And as for the Cutler trade, it's interesting to see some of the names that got eventually got drafted in some slots that the Broncos traded away:


First in 09 Denver got Robert Ayers with the 18th pick, used the 84 (Mike Wallace) in a package to trade up to 64 and got Richard Quinn. The Bears used 140 that year to select Johnny Knox.


The 2010 pick Denver played ping pong first trading 11 (Anthony Davis: non unibrow edition) to SF for 13 and 113. Then 13 (Brandon Graham) went to PHI for 24, 70, and 87. DEN then trades 24 and 113 (Aaron Hernandez) to NE for 22 (also NE trades out of 24 to DAL who took Dez Bryant). With the 87 pick, DEN took Decker. That 70 pick (Ed Dickson), it got shipped to BAL along with 43 (originally received in the Marshall trade to MIA - which BAL used on Sergio Kindle), and 114 (Dennis Pitta) for none other than The Golden Calf of Bristol.
