  1. The irony is that for ps players it matter much less to the team if they are not vaccinated. Five days out for a close encounter, so what as they are not playing anyway. 

    That said, if i was a coach in my sixties there is no way I would accept that extra risk for myself, even if I was vaccinated, for a play that far down the roster.

  2. Small market, 1PM slot games, unknown guy, bad team (until proven otherwise), "does not impact every play".

    A lot of factors not in his favor. This is a decent bet for money you don't need because you want it to happen. It is not a good bet for a serious long term betting strategy (then again, high odds almost never is).

  3. I think Burns will be an absolute awesome player for us, still the competition at pass rusher right now will keep him out. He'll be hurt by the "Yes, lots of sacks but a one trick pony" argument. Voter loves those blow up the tackle highlight guys, not the use technic to accomplish the same guys.

    CMC can get in if his body hold up and he can put together a long second carrier as at slot receiver.

    Chinn is too early to tell, but he certainly has the wow factor.

  4. Suspended prayers does not count towards the 53 roster spots. So in a twisted kind of way this might actual help him. 

    If he stinks he stinks and are gone regardless. If he is close there is really no reason not the to let him stick around until he is back from the suspension, giving him a full preseason to prove himself and spots might open up due to injuries.

  5. It was a nice story. It was worth a shot at almost no cost. But everyone saw last year he is simply not up for it. Time to move on or just live with him as a poor backup.

    And as Grier could not push Walker for reps, he is at most a clipboard holder at this point. His upside is lasting his rookie contract without seeing the field.

    Let's put our focus on Sam, he is our only chance this year.

  6. He is an interesting case study.

    Never worked hard and simply out talented his surroundings. I would guess the structure and lack of cash in college had more to do with him keeping his weight within reason in the off seasons than anything else. Enters the pro and he basically takes six months vacation every year.

    He did get his weight in order one year, losing like 30 pounds over summer, and looks in shape. Of course with his size and natural explosiveness he should had worked his knees every day or he was an ACL tear waiting to happen. He made himself injury prone.

    I wish him all the best, if he has matured enough to put in the work he should have a shot.

  7. So 32 seconds in the narrator "forget the numbers and watch the tape" while Darnald completes a contested catch 7 yards deep.

    What the tape actually shows is the another receiver had both the safety and the corner beat deep and Sam picked up the dink and dunk yards instead. 

    I love for this to work, I want us the win now!, But this did not help my fate.

    What is the best course of action to take regarding Teddy? 

    (1) Trade him for very little before the season and eat a large portion of his contract (Avoid distractions- Free up a little Cap Space- choose a back up that is all-in).

    (2) Keep him to back-up Sam and pay him all of his huge contract for sitting (maybe trade him later for something, have him available if something happens to Sam)

    (3) Cut him (free him to find his own way- Free up a little Cap Space, but eat a lot of dead money)

    You miss the main reason to cut him. You are not alone, everyone misses this.

    The base salary is $17M, only $10M is guaranteed right now. So cutting him saves the $7M difference. Not sure if I would only call that "a little Cap Space".

    This is also what makes him close to untradable. Even if we convert the full $10M to a bonus and eat it today. The trade bait is Teddy at $7M. I'll be very surprised if anyone want this, and we get no cap saving over a cut so we need value to do it.

  9. What about Denver? If we can make them believe we have a partner ready to move ahead of them we can easily pick up a fourth and still get our guy at 9.

    But given the fact that the easiest way to keep your job is to draft a quarterback and get a new grace period, all qbs will probably be gone.

  10. I want Ricardo Allen, smart players outperforming his athletic ability that should come on the cheap. We could get more creative with Chinn with a guy the coaches really trust behind him.

    Granted, there are hard knocks bais in this. 

  11. The basic idea here is that this guarantees Hill is a free agent next year.

    Hill is doing the team a solid for cap relief, had they just tucked on the years at current rate of $12M he might actually outplay it. And with that losing a lot of money in those years. Could happen if he turns into a starter at QB, not a large chance but player tend to believe they are the best ever.

    So this way he is free at test the market next year, or in the off chance of him turning into the second coming of Elway either play for the ridiculous number or get a really good longer deal. Without it he could be tagged at a relative bargain.

    And he gets more up front cash as a kicker.

    What the saints actually gives up is the change to resign him as a mid pack qb starter deal. So they probably no longer think he can be that.

  12. We just got proof that looking at the day to day numbers are useless as China just revised to Wuhan death toll with 50% (about 1250 new deaths). 

    I'm Swedish and even though there are plenty of reasons, other than the soft shut down, our death numbers are high like larger part older population compared to our neighbors and reporting death at nursery homes, there is simply no idea of knowing if we are doing the right thing right now. 

    And if soft shut down leads to less death in the long run compared to hard, that is actually only sad as while good for us it means a lot more deaths on a global scale. So I'm conflicted at that too. 

    Let's hope for the best regardless of method and try to stay safe everyone!

    Probably at least another 100k cases out there and not reported.  I still think like I did way back, like 50 or 60 pages ago, that if we know who this affects, then quarantine them, and stop trying to lockdown the country.  It has not worked anywhere.  We are locking down the entire economy to protect certain vulnerable groups.  Make the guidelines for everyone, but sooooo many people who cough a day or two and are over it.  Others 50%, have no symptoms at all.  Getting the test out there to see who has had it would be helpful.  Let them go back to work, volunteer, etc.  Would ease the burden on every sector of society.  Not sure what the rush to test everyone will accomplish in the end. 

    You are missing the fact that a lot of infected "no risk group" survived thanks to treatment. And no country in the world has capacity to treat even a fraction of the sever cases if we just let it run lose. 

    Your point assumes it is safe for everyone in non risk groups without treatment. Do you want to risk the lives of tens or even hundreds of thousands on that assumption?

    Big weakness in 2014 on defense was buffalo nickel. Enter Shaq Thompson, new prototype for Buffalo Nickel. 

    Sorry, I'm not buying. And while Star was a great need, he fell from a projected top ten due to the reported heart condition, so one could easily argue that he was in fact bpa. 

    Even with Benjamin there is just not enough evidence for your case (not bpa in the first) yet. 

    That being said, I would love a TE as well.

    The great thing about the NFL draft is the incoming talent pool is typically deep enough that, aside from a need at QB (which they don't have, despite what some on there think) there's no such thing as "no man's land" for a draft pick.

    Star -14th, Short - 2nd round, Benjamin - 28th, Thompson - 25th, etc.

    The problem is their drafts from about the 2012 NFCCG season on are reminiscent of the drafts at the end of Hurney's tenure, and once the veterans from those teams left, that drafting got exposed.

    In many ways it's a carbon copy of the Panthers' post-2008 era, let's just hope that if they move on from Ryan they don't find their Cam, and when they move on from Dimitroff they don't find their Gettleman.

    Quinn has final say on roster moves so dimitroff is basically a figurehead already. 

    I am not to worried about them turning it around. Ryans window is closed, but he will be good enough to keep them out any potential franchise qb pick. All while wasting Julios window, as one of the best, as well.  

  16. Not to be rude but this isn't even a good joke anymore. Jags fans bring more heat than Panthers fans before and during a home game. We have so much work to do to protect BoA that we aren't in position to mock any other fan base. 

    If I had to watch a pool full of huddlers in my home stadium I would be screaming too :)
