  1. Media pundits started mocking Fields to us because of reports that "Tepper wants Fields" and we all saw how that turned out.
  2. All these guys saw the stacked team that TB immediately put around Rodgers and started looking at their organizations and going 'why didn't we do that since you had, you know, me!"
  3. I have no issue with this statement. Iconic pairing ended too soon.
  4. I watched ESPN this year because of Greenie hosting. I've been a fan of his for a while. I thought he did a pretty good job.
  5. I worried Nagy's lack of job security could cause him to throw Justin out there before he's ready. If Justin shows promise even later on in the season, it could save Nagy and Perez's jobs.
  6. Unfortunately, that's Darnold's number one problem and before you start typing 'Jets', it was also a chief weakness for him in college. He's the polar opposite of Teddy. He'll let it rip. Let's just hope the right team catches it.
  7. There are many factors that makes Week 1 unlike any other. You really shouldn't make any broad conclusions from the results-- good or bad.
  8. I think people are going to very pleasantly surprised with Dan Arnold. Granted that I only got to see one game (ARI @ PHI) but what I saw was encouraging.
  9. Could they gave felt Fontenot's absence so quickly?
  10. "I'm really excited to coach Cam Newton." I don't put a ton of stock in Rhule's public comments about the quarterbacks. By his actions, he'spushed all his chips in on Darnold. Let's hope that was the right decision.
  11. "The way personnel people see it, a three this year equates to a two next year, then we picked up a four next year, so basically the Same Darnold trade is paid off." - Matt Rhule at the Day 2 press conference All that maneuvering just so we can say that we got Sam Darnold for 'nothing'.
  12. Creed Humphey OC - Would solidify OC where Paradis has struggled. Spencer Brown OT - I'm intrigued by the size, but may be there in the 3rd.
  13. Perez and Nagy have essentially tied themselves to Fields. Their jobs ride on them showing they are developing him. He's got to play and probably will sooner than he should.
  14. They'll promote Sean Ryan and he'll run the same system.
  15. The reason to believe is Joe Burrow. Look at Burrow before Joe Brady got to LSU versus Burrow after Brady got to LSU. I submit that Brady was able to transform Burrow into something he hadn't been. (I really wanted the Panthers to draft Fields last night, but we didn't. Now, we have to hope that Brady can make Darnold into a great QB. )
  16. But he wasn't. You don't know what Fields or Lance or Jones or Wilson will look at the pro level. You've got three years of pro tape on Darnold. It was , to be generous, not great. And you're going to have to pay Darnold much more next year than you would any rookie out of this class.
  17. This scenario doesn't have GB trading their pick at all. They get #3 and #15. My thinking is GB wants to turn the QB position over the Love so they'd have no interest in JimmyG. NE does have an interest in JimmyG (though as Proudiddy points out its fair to ask if JimmyG would be worth a 1st rounder to NE). If SF acquires NE's pick for JimmyG it gives them a better offer to make to GB.
  18. I mean, just look at this tweet. Both Wingo and Silverstein cite their "sources", but their "sources" are saying completely contradictory things. i
