  1. I actually think this opening point by Beddingfield is a really good one and something that's so hard for fans to actually know. He said "The top front offices will gauge the differences in free agency and the strength of the draft and use this to their advantage to not overpay for high-priced free agents but acquire younger less expensive players of similar skill." So often as fans, it seems like we think of FA and the draft as 2 completely separate pieces, but in reality, the strength of one vs the other should play a huge part in how teams actually approach each one. Of course, it requires a healthy balance. Beddingfield believes we're set at the following positions, and simply need to fill out their depth through cheap FAs or the draft: QB, RB, OT, ILB, and CB. He rates our top positions of need as follows: 1) Pass rush This can be interior DL or OLB. Need both starters and depth at OLB. 2) WR We all know how he feels about Davis. He says we need an immediate starter and should sign one in FA. He says we lack playmakers here and although we can improve, he doesn't see a true gamechanger being available in FA or the draft. 3) S It was interesting to see him rate safety so high. His reasoning is that Byard needs to be re-signed, Cyprien is making too much, and Vaccaro will likely be out of our price range as a result of Eric Reid's deal (BB believes Vaccaro is better than Reid). 4) iOL Beddingfield likes Spain and admits he pushed for them to sign him as a UDFA. He doesn't expect them to re-sign him though. Sounds like he believes we should draft a G to develop, move Conklin to OG, and start Kelly at RT. 5) TE Pretty much what we all know here. Walker isn't going to last forever. Beddingfield says he would draft one that is going to be a future starter. 6) NT Would look for a mid-late pick to upgrade here. Would also look closely at the top heap of UDFAs. More, including what Beddingfield would do with our own FAs, in the article here: https://www.paulkuharsky.com/news/scout-s-take-where-the-titans-need-to-upgrade
  2. Nintendo's upcoming NX will be a portable, handheld console with detachable controllers, a number of sources have confirmed to Eurogamer. On the move, NX will function as a high-powered handheld console with its own display. So far so normal - but here's the twist: we've heard the screen is bookended by two controller sections on either side, which can be attached or detached as required. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2016-07-26-nx-is-a-portable-console-with-detachable-controllers
  3. I feel like this "debate" comes up every single year despite pretty much everybody saying the exact same thing.
  4. What’s the over/under on him playing more than, say, 8 games? Even if JRob thinks he’s the best SS in the league, it’s foolish to ignore the injury history.
  5. Are there any day 1 starters at SS in this draft? I hadn’t thought about it much, but Beddingfield’s article made me think more about it. Byard is in line for a monster deal so it would be nice if our SS was on a rookie deal.
  6. I wouldn’t say that, but the window of the AFC South being weak is over. We can still have success. Some of our best years came when 18 was leading the Colts.
  7. Pretty sure he agree with your first comment. Did you see the quote? "The top front offices will gauge the differences in free agency and the strength of the draft and use this to their advantage to not overpay for high-priced free agents but acquire younger less expensive players of similar skill." The QB situation is what it is. Beddingfield is a big believer in Mariota.
  8. Sounds like the Colts beat writers expect them to go after Collins. Makes sense because they have Hooker on a cheap deal at FS. Indy is going to have a monster offseason. We might as well brace for it now.
  9. I posted a separate thread on it, but Beddingfield is also suggesting we should move Conklin to G and start Kelly at RT.
  10. Wait, why does Switch go against PC lobbies? If you're doing solos, I'm pretty sure it's Switch players only.
  11. Kiper's new mock has us going with Christian Wilkins, DT from Clemson.
  12. The names PK says he would target are these guys and in this order: 1) Tyrod Taylor 2) Case Keenum 3) Ryan Tannehill 4) Blake Bortles
  13. I'm saying no way on this, but I'll go ahead and post since it's Titans related speculation.
  14. You mean season 8? Next to nothing has been leaked for this one. Season 7 had quite a few leaks though beforehand. The place you'd want to look is here: https://www.reddit.com/r/freefolk/ They had what was essentially the full plot before last season. Very little at all has been revealed this season though. All they have are a few set reports, who was filming at what location, and when. A few fake leaks here and there. So far, it seems like HBO has things locked down for the final season.
