  1. The UFC wants Joanna on the undercard for Rousey, and Gadelha is injured and won't be ready for Nov. 14th. UFC probably doesn't think Joanna is enough of a draw to put on the Jan 2nd cards as a co-main to Lawler-Condit.
  2. Some combination of Rubio or Bush and Walker stand the best chance to win the election. Guessing the party will start to push that combo at some point in the near future. However, I think the Republicans have really underestimated Trump. The networks love him because of ratings but they actually let him into the room and Trump actually thinks he has a chance. Trump isn't stupid, he very much saw Fox News turn on him. If he feels slighted by the Republican Party and is willing to go down swinging, that is a big problem for the GOP.
  3. What is the rumor?I don't remember the exact details, but it was something like:Foles + 2015 1st, 2nd, 3rd 2016 1st, 2nd 2017 1st traded to TB for #1 overall + WR Mike Evans. Think I saw that rumor on this board, but I'm not sure. Don't think that was a real rumor, more like someone guessing at a deal they thought made sense. I see a lot of people OK with moving multiple picks like this for a player, but IMO that represents a fantasy metality where he with the most studs usually wins. The NFL is not like that. Studs still matter, but positions 20-40 on the depth chart matter just as much, and moving multiple high picks in several straight years for just one or two players makes it awfully difficult to adequately stock the middle of the depth chart. DEPTH MATTERS IN THE NFL. The big problem with making moves like that is not so much that depth matters, it is that scouting generally sucks in the NFL and the bust rate is high for even top draft picks. There are very few actual difference makers in NFL and getting those guys is really important.
  4. Payton lies to reporters for the sake of lying to reporters. I'm pretty worried as a Graham owner as I was told by a friend of a friend, reliable I know, that Jimmy bought a bunch of beginner music equipment at a local shop and said that he'll "have a lot of free time now."
  5. Not sure about this. He was comparable, if not better than, Arian Foster the past few years in Houston. No he wasn't. Yeah, Tate was definitely not better than Foster the past few years. 2013: Foster with better YPC and Success Rate (4.5 vs 4.3, 38.5% vs 37.8) 2012: Tate with better YPC & Success Rate (4.2 vs 4.1 & 46.8% vs 38%) 2011: Tate with better YPC & Success Rate (5.3 vs 4.6 & 45.2& vs 41.8%)

  7. Of course. I, any many other Sankey owners, hope that he'll eventually utilize him or that he'll be forced to use him due to injury. I'm a more than a little skeptical of someone's ability to assess a player's ability and progression based on a few carries in the preseason. Rare exceptions I can think of are cases where someone is comically bad or does things that are eye opening amazing and neither appears to be the case with Sankey.
  8. The Strawman argument yet again? Who is calling him a bust? Check the title of the thread. This was supposed to be a homage to the best RB in the 2014 draft. Early on we had numerous favorable comparisons of Sankey to McCoy, Rice, and a healthy Best. He was supposed to be a locked-in starter and bell cow RB. Some were assuring us he was a bonafide stud and that his 4th/5th round draft slot was a steal. Lately there have been direct comparisons to Murray.What has he shown in the NFL to date that supports any of that? And from what we have seen of him so far is spot on with the more objective scouting reports - he isn't good between the tackles, doesn't push the pile, goes down easily on first contact, doesn't have vision and imagination, and looks like part of a RBBC. That's not to say he can't play in the NFL. He has a place as a valuable cog. But stud bell cow? Not remotely close right now. . But you're doing exactly what you're trying to call out, right? He *can* be the best RB in the draft and not have an opportunity yet. . By that logic, any RB in this draft class "can" be the best RB in this draft. I'm basing my judgment from what we have seen so far in his play against NFL players, both on his team in how he gets an opportunity and opponents with what he does with the opportunity. It's not wishful thinking or imagination. We've seen him in 5 games against NFL caliber defenses so far. His weaknesses are real, just as his strengths are real. It's almost amusing hearing him compared to proven NFL prime RB1s by the same people who say Greene sucks - and yet Sankey can't carve out a meaningful role. How exactly does one rationalize that? Preseason numbers are quite meaningless. Determining that a guy sucks after less than 10 carries of regular season work is a stretch. It seems like you are deferring to the coaching staff, but I, and a lot of people in this thread, have little respect for the Wiz's intelligence and/or player evaluation skills.
  9. I can't see him having much value with the current coaching staff. He's a non-traditional NFL WR playing for an HC and OC who weren't innovative 15 years ago.
  10. Greene just isn't that good, and the Jets gave him every opportunity. Fantasy-wise you could pencil him in for 7 points every week, with an occasional big game that padded his year-end stats. He'll get snaps with the Titans, but if you start him on your fantasy team, don't expect much. so why should we own Sankey hoping that he will take Greene's job and not own Greene who has the job? Because Green is terrible and we are projecting Sankey to be better than terrible and for the coaching staff to actually figure this out in the near future.
  11. Having watched them both pllay I'd say Hill is an upgrade. He's not the LT solution, but when they find a way to get rid of the albatross that is Bradford's contract there should be much rejoicing in St Louis. It will be figuratively and literally liberating to take the cap hit and move forward.I doubt many Rams fans view it as such ATM, but this season ending injury has the potential to be a defining moment in the turnaround of the franchise. Rams fans are probably the most likely to see it as that.
  12. As your #3 RB I don't see a problem. He'll be a lot more involved as the season goes on. I agree. His situation is very similar to Doug Martin in his rookie year.
  13. He's not officially the starter now, but it seems unlikely that he won't start in a few weeks. Green and Mccluster are pretty poor runners, Green got dineged and fumbled in preseason, and the team did invest a 2nd rounder on him and took an tackle in the first on a good OL to begin with. Imo, RB in fantasy football is less about a players ability and more about situation. Sankey, if the starter, would go to one off the best situations in the league, good OL, mobile qb, and a coach who wants to run,throw to RBS, and prob doesn't trust his qb to throw in red zone.
  14. He better have a hard shell because while Philly loves him now, let him fail on a crucial/unconventional 4&1 and there will be bombs coming from every direction. Yes of course - that's one of the reasons so many coaches are wimps (they're not all just dumb I don't think). It'll be interesting to see how steadfast he is in his approach after that does happen. There are zero fans blaming Doug Marrone for punting on 4th&1 so the wrong/bad % play is definitely a good way to keep your job longer. There are however fans complaining about not huddling with 5:50 left and a 1pt lead because ya know, Tom Brady might've run out of time if he only had 3minutes to get in FG range. My God, football fans are the worst. It isn't because they would face criticism, they mostly make bad decisions because they really are just dumb, imo. Most coaches make similar, bad choices regularly in situations where they wouldn't face such criticism.
