  1. Lung capacity is just one of many factors that makes up conditioning or endurance as it pertains to an NFL running back. Another factor is the efficiency in which your muscle cells can produce and utilize energy, while also ridding itself of the metabolic byproducts (lactic acid.) This is effected by quality of nutrition. Cutting out processed sugar from the diet CAN have a positive impact on overall performance in general, and endurance specifically.
  2. The lungs are organs, not muscles. They improve in performance via the optimization of gas exchange in order to oxygenate the blood. You've completely generalized the body without understanding cellular metabolism (IE energy production). What you put inside your body matters as to how the body will convert it into usable energy for work, or in this case conditioning/endurance. Consuming highly processed sugar - the absolute lowest quality form of fuel known to human biology - WILL impact the capabilities of the mitochondria within the cells to produce ATP (cellular energy), and further, WILL increase reactive oxygen species production within the cells which causes inflammation and from an athletic perspective, decreases tissue quality and performance. Just cause you see dudes drinking gatorade on the sidelines and they still have a ripped six pack doesn't mean their bodies are functioning optimally. A guy who is taking the time to fuel his body properly is someone trying to stack the deck as much in his favor as possible - as he should (see Tom Brady, TB12 etc.) Whether all this has the desired, quantifiable impact Aaron Jones is looking for remains to be seen, but a blanket statement that your dietary intake doesn't effect athletic performance is patently incorrect, regardless of what your Phys Ed teacher might have told you 30 years ago.
  3. I know nothing about him, but a friend is mentioning him for the same reason. And I counter with: what respectable GM candidate who is in a successful position with a stable franchise and can wait it out and pick their opportunity in the near future, decide to come to this a**backward dumpster fire, knowing full well he'll probably be looking for a new job in 2-3 years himself? These stupid moves have resonating impacts across the league. It's this type of BS as to why we can also never find a half decent offensive coordinator either.
  4. This is a good point, and logic I used to apply when considering what happened to Tannenbaum as a GM when we all loved him under the Mangini year(s?) because he brought in a good core of players...versus the Rex years when we were drafting the likes Kyle Wilson, Quinton Coples, Dee Miliner and Calvin Pryor with our 1sts. I guess there really is something to be said about a coach having a quasi-duel role as a GM. Maybe/hopefully Gase's experience with personnel decisions (albeit something he didn't want) in Miami will help in the form of input he has in this draft. We can only hope given that it's starting to look like Mac has to be saved from himself right now.
  5. From a gambling perspective - I pray Conor somehow talks his way into a rematch. His trash bag mouth will talk the public (again) into thinking he has a chance (see: Mayweather, Khabib 1) and we will see something like -400 or better. At which point you sell everything you own and bet Khabib for the easier ROI ever.
  6. He has the feel of a "Bowles guy" who isn't going to thrive under what isn't going to be a particularly player friendly environment run by Gase/Williams.
  7. That's kind of where I felt when I made the offer. I'm in more of a win now, he could definitely use a bit of a restock. Cooper becomes my 2B behind Hopkins and Cooks. He had also drafted Pettis last year (flipped him in a move that landed him Kelce) so I was hoping the sentimentality was still there as well. Cooper was his best roster player besides Kelce and Michel.
  8. That's the nature of having to build your roster in FA. Every year, the "best" available player at quite a few positions becomes the highest paid player at position X ever. Just the way the league and cap inflates. Happy to give an extra few mill to guys that were identified as needs and major upgrades because we actually had the ability to do so without hamstringing the rest of the offseason.
  9. Realize this isn't the best place to ask, but with the looming likelihood of Quest Dynasty Leagues going ponzi, I'm about to lose 2/4 dynasty leagues. Does anybody know of any good management companies left out there besides FFPC?
  10. Maybe this clears the path for Mac to get fired and Peyton to take over as President of Football Ops next year....
