    Antonio Brown WR - PIT

    I'm sure "regular" Le'veon would have helped but he didn't want to be there anymore and appeared to leave the team hanging. Not sure another bad attitude would benefit the club house. I imagine that both sides, if given the same opportunity, might play their cards differently. But, the fact remains he wasn't available. Attrition (for any reason) is a big part of the game. Teams have to find another option and Connor proved to be a very serviceable replacement.

    How do you know Bell isn't out in week one with a strained ego? If the Steelers can't beat the Raiders maybe they didn't deserve to be in the play-offs. And keep slapping yourself in the head until until the CTE kicks in.

    We've turned a potentially great thread into a pissing ground for tanking?

    Coop's Dynasty Rules Of Thumb

    There is an exception to every rule.. that is except the rule that says there is an exception to every rule. That has no exception. Wait a minute. I guess it does have an exception. So there is an exception to every rule, or is there? Yes, our track record and approach is very similar. One difference, however, is I put more value on rookie picks. Put more of an emphasis on quality than quantify when looking for prospects and you can also hold the younger player, who could prove more costly to acquire by trade tomorrow.

    Like I said, Bell didn't want to be there, at least not at a price the Steelers wanted to pay. Connor was a reasonable replacement; possibly an excellent one when you factor in salary and what that could mean at other positions. He wasn't the reason they missed the play-offs.
  6. Which reminds me of the seldom seen Fair Catch Free Kick: The fair catch kick is a rule at the professional and high school levels of American football that allows a team that has just made a fair catch to attempt a free kick[A] from the spot of the catch. The kick must be either a place kick or a drop kick, and if it passes over the crossbar and between the goalposts of the defensive team's goal, a field goal, worth three points, is awarded to the offensive team. The fair catch kick has its origins in rugby football. The rule is considered to be obscure and unusual, as most fair catches are made well out of field goal range, and in most cases a team that has a fair catch within theoretical range will attempt a normal drive to score a touchdown. The fair catch kick is generally used when a team has fair caught a ball within field goal range and there is insufficient time to score a touchdown. At the professional level, the last successful fair catch kick was made in 1976. If you watch a replay of the waning moments of regulation in the Falcons/Patriots Superbowl, Atlanta punted with very little time left. Prior to the punt, I remember seeing Edelman focusing on the Patriots' side line excessively. "There considering a Fair Catch Free Kick" I hollered. Of course, none of the drunks at this good sized gathering had any idea what I was talking about. You know Belichick was aware of the possibility. I believe Edelman fair caught the ball at the 35 - setting up the possibility of a 75 yard kick to end a Superbowl. That would have been an unbelievable moment for this rarity. It would have made the Tuck Rule look like a picnic. 75 yards is long but it is executed like a kick-off. Obviously, NE did not take the chance but I bet BB had a yard line in his mind to make the attempt.

    Will fuller dynasty and redraft prospect

    Sad thing is... I remember thinking how fluid and fast he looked earlier in that game.

    Again, just using the numbers to illustrate his productivity. As good a player as Bell is, he didn't want to be there. So you have to move on and its "next man up". Bell could have made some money last season. He also could have signed a deal earlier on. From I what I recall, the reported numbers weren't that bad. I think Bell's issue is that he feels like he played for a discount for years and wanted that rectified. So Bell has what he wanted - his health and freedom.

    Because there is a correlation with productivity? Maybe Connor wouldn't have seen many touches with Bell on the field. Maybe Bell would have pulled an AB if Connor got too much attention. Either way you roll it, Pittsburgh could roll with Connor and use the cap money somewhere else.

    Antonio Brown WR - PIT

    I agree that he has been a phenomenal player. But I also think his recent antics make it difficult to make the first class pro claim. The Steelers have done a remarkable job of finding WR talent. While it isn't easy to replace the NFL best players, AB turns 31 next summer and perhaps his best days are behind him. I do think there is a point - maybe when success completely goes to their head - that players lose their edge. What exactly is AB's problem anyway? Can he not feed his family on $1 million a game?
  12. Surprised more people weren't on the dump shady while you can bandwagon... I would have been.

    Connor was 6th overall in my league and was a factor in the receiving game. Throw in 12 TDs... Not bad at all when you consider he missed 3 games and played a tough schedule. Would Bell have done significantly better?

    Bell was replaced fairly easily... I understand these guys are talented but are they worth the other baggage?

    Rooney rule discussion

    You would think that would be the case. On a certain level, the RR seems to be a bizarre concept. If you had an organization adverse to a minority hiring, what do you gain my forcing a minority interview? It seems like more of a disservice to the minority candidate.
