Blue Chips

27 July 2014 - 05:07 AM

I was having a conversation with some friends, and we were debating the "blue chip players" on each team, and were attempting to use that to predict how well they would do next season. We went through each teams and counted up how many players on that team could be legitimately argued for top 10 at their respective positions. The numbers might surprise you.
 
Nine blue chip players:
Seahawks
Panthers
 
Eight blue chip players:
Broncos
 
Seven blue chip players:
Patriots
49ers
Browns (!)
 
Six blue chip players:
Texans
Bears
Chiefs  
Saints
 
Five blue chip players:
Cowboys
Lions
Packers
Cardinals
 
Four blue chip players:
Bengals
Ravens 
Colts
Redskins
Buccaneers 
Rams
 
Three blue chip players:
Bills
Jets
Steelers
Titans
Chargers 
Eagles 
Giants 
Vikings 
 
Every other team ended up with two or less.
 
Of course, as you all know, stars can rise any day and become a blue chip player. Also, qb play can make a huge difference on if your blue chips count, but it is an interesting topic none the less.

Any word on re-signing Drayton Florence?

He was our best corner last year, but I have not heard any news about him lately. Chance he will just wait out camp?

Another reason to not be worried is amount of "Blue Chip" players we have on our roster, blue chip of course meaning, someone who can be argued top 10 in their position within reason, or at least, that is general argument.

 

We have a whopping seven blue chip players, SEVEN. Just for some perspective.

 

Atlanta: 2

New Orleans: 5

Tampa: 3

Denver: 9

Seattle: 8

New England: 4

San Francisco: 8

Packers: 5

 

It is going to be alright, we have a diverse core, CALM DOWN.


The last five super bowl winners

Signed a whopping two "big name players" in free agency (Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril) calm the fug down. Also keep in mind, it took a while after FA began to attain Bennett and Avril.
