  1. At the end of the day, the draft is all about acquiring talent and roster building...period. When you look past all the window dressing and debates, the bottom line is: did you add talent and make the team better? In his first draft, JRob brought in three guys who became top-notch starters (Conklin, Henry, Byard) and three solid depth/rotational players (Johnson, Sims, Sharpe). Granted, he started with a ton of draft capital......but that’s a damn good draft class, period. It’s unfortunate that only two of those six players are still on the roster...but that’s life in the NFL. You can’t keep everyone. JRob has already shown that he can build a strong, competitive roster. Now we find out whether he can maintain it.
  2. Every time I glance at this thread title, I see it as “Anyone hearing anything about Titans sightings?” As if the Titans are big TMZ celebrities or some rare animal species.
  3. This is going to be a death-blow for small, locally-owned businesses. A lot of big corporations will take a beating, lose tons of revenue, and have massive layoffs and restructures.....but with deep pockets and huge financial reserves, they'll find ways to withstand the storm and eventually come out the other side. But most mom-and-pop businesses are just regular working-class people working to stay afloat and make a living.....and they're looking at a total loss of revenue for several weeks or months. Most Americans can't afford to go 2-3 months without a paycheck....the same applies to small businesses. My fear is that most of the small businesses that are forced to close temporarily will never open their doors again.....and when the smoke eventually clears, the Wal-Marts and McDonalds of the world will be the only brick-and-mortar businesses left standing.
  4. We already know Vrabel and Clowney go way back. I kinda figured this deal would come down to either Seattle or Tennessee, barring any surprise dark horses. I'm sure Clowney sees himself as a $20M+/year guy, and he probably thought teams would be lined up to throw money at him....but it sounds like NFL GMs didn't get the memo. I don't see him as an elite game-wrecker....but he's a very good player, and I'd have no problem with $15M/year. But with his history of injuries and inconsistency, I'd have anything beyond that tied to performance incentives.
  5. I seem to recall either Reese or Fisher laying it out in an interview a couple years ago: Both Reese and Fisher wanted Cutler. Chow was banging the table for Leinart. But of course, Bud trumped them all.
  6. I don’t know about the Chiefs...but with the Colts, I’d keep the defense on the field as much as possible and give Rivers every opportunity to throw the game away.
  7. My thoughts exactly. The NFL has a saying: "It's better to part ways with a player a year too soon than to keep him a year too long". Casey is still an impact player and obviously made his presence felt last year.....but he wasn't as much of a force as he had been in previous years. I imagine Jurrell still has at least a couple good years ahead of him...but as one of the higher-paid DL in the league, it's fair to question whether his level of play will continue to justify his salary. For months, this forum has been discussing the various contracts that were expiring and the salary cap implications. We knew JRob would have some difficult decisions to make; no matter what happened, the team would have to part ways with some talented, popular players. Most of the moves we've seen thus far were fully anticipated; trading Casey for peanuts is the first move that really wasn't expected. It's a double-edged sword for fans: on one hand, JRob is showing that he's 100% focused on the big picture and making decisions based on the team's long-term interests. But by the same token, there will be tough decisions to make every single year....and noone is untouchable.
  8. An all-too-rare classy move by the league.
  9. Y'know, son.....back when I was a boy, $54M really meant something. Back then, folks thought $54M was real money.
  10. This trade is absolutely mind-boggling. If BoB's goal is strip the Texans' roster of their best talent and leadership this offseason, he's off to a tremendous start.
  11. Correa is a solid rotational pass rusher. Not a guy you break the bank for, but maybe $3-4M/year.
  12. Giving up the the #13 overall pick *and* paying the guy $21M/year? I could see doing one or the other....but both?
  13. The 5th year option for Davis isn't even a consideration. That would pay him around $16-17M in 2021....which is ridiculous. I could see them making him an offer for $5-6M/year.....but I doubt he'd take it at this point. I'm guessing he plays this year with the intention of testing the market next year; maybe another team is willing to pay way more than he's worth.
  14. Drunken, incoherent ramblings of a madman.
  15. Man, this is just SO wrong. 😂
