  1. That Ravens DLine is going against the worst OLine in the NFL this week. Finley will be throwing against a much improved pass defense as the Ravens now sport a secondary featuring Marcus Peters and Jimmy Smith at corner. This should be a slaughterhouse. Now with no AJ Green. Doubt he would have made a difference.
  2. He got a 3-yr deal with $29 mil guaranteed which, for a receiver like him, is roughly 2 years guaranteed.
  3. Apparently. Saints wanted him but seems weren't willing to part with the draft capital. Would anyone give any 31 yr old receiver more than 2 years guaranteed?
  4. Finley is not the same type of QB. He's more accurate but has way less arm. Will he throw it farther than 10-15 yards?
  5. Jameis had 11 interceptions in his first 5 games last year and then had 3 the rest of the year.
  6. Finley is a game manager and doesn't have the arm Dalton has. This is likely to be dink and dump city.
  7. Home run hitter in an offense geared towards setting up those shots. What's not to like?
  8. 4.) A running back who has a pretty good run schedule ROW.
  9. Not sure how relevant this is but maybe he shouldn't be playing in this offense. A study was done in 2015 that shows pretty clearly that offensive players in the West Coast offense have a significantly higher rate of concussions than other offenses. Cooks plays in a West Coast offense and has had 4 concussions in 2 years.
  10. Even if Amari's wide open, Dak won't see him. Gallup was open all day in Washington and Dak always seemed to be looking somewhere else. Its going to be cold this winter in Dallas and no 1st round pick next year.
  11. Well this is going just as I suspected. From a fantasy perspective, a big game for Beckham in any game isn't impossible but less and less likely. As this season wears on, I think my point will become clearer and clearer. The question now becomes, will he wear out his welcome this year before they draft their QB of the future next year albeit in an apparently thin class.
  12. You've got a $20 million dollar/year uber-talented receiver with a noodle armed QB and an oline that isn't in sync and just lost their starting center. They can't even pick up basic stunts. By the time the oline gets it together they might be 0-6.
  13. I guess he's lucky the video was short. He's been suspended and fined for blowing up on the field which may have cost them the division and that had nothing to do with Norman. I respect your opinion Chaka but I don't feel that $19 million on Beckham is smart for the Giants. He can't make enough difference when they don't have a QB or a defense. I also feel he's shown enough erratic behaviour to question whether he will be a problem in a rebuilding situation which they are sure to face.
  14. Just think he's got some kind of issues. Don't know if its anger or egoism or what. I feel strongly that its not smart to sink so much money into a WR like him. I can see where people think he's worth the money, but I think its not smart. Dez showed up and wanted to win but, in the end, he was a cancer. A me-ist. I think OBJ is similar and there will be a similar end.
  15. The most prominent memory I have of OBJ is him banging his head into the practice net on the sidelines. That isn't really a good memory considering what this guy is now getting paid. There is also the video posted online of him which won't get him suspended but is a precursor to what we might expect of him with all this new money. The guy is a primadonna self-absorbed,egotistical me-ist and that rarely works in the NFL. Let's go thru the roster of NFL greats. How many act like this and are key cogs of a Super Bowl team? Sell tickets while you can until this guy self-destructs. Fantasy-wise? Go for it I guess. But franchise-wise? I wouldn't do it. I'd pay AB or Julio whatever they ask. They do everything and never hear a peep. But this guy rubs me the wrong way.
  16. I can't argue with your logic. You are a learned poster but I pose it will be an offense without OBJ because he will self destruct. I don't think (overpaid) primadonnas belong in team sports and the last few Super Bowls prove my point sans Brady. OBJ imho is poison and he will show why this year or next. That's why its stupid money.
  17. Good points and thoughtfully presented. Although one player isn't going to keep players in the stands. Ultimately it will be a winning team. I hate the idea of putting so much money into one player and a player with questionable behavior at that. I feel very strongly that this contract will become a problem for the Giants that they will need to expunge in the near term. Mad money is what I'd call it. Julio and Gronk have capable QBs for the foreseeable future. NYG does not. If I'm rebuilding a franchise I do not do it with a max contract on a WR. I spend on defense until I find a QB worth my time.
  18. I don't see OBJ booning anyone. Is he one of the best WR's in the league? Sober yes. Will he stay sober on that contract? Time will tell but we'll see. The guy was a head case on his rookie contract.
  19. Is that what its all about? Or are the building a team? It's still a team game right? It's insane to waste this kind of money when you don't even have a prospect capable of throwing him the ball. It seems like a move that comes from fear rather than intelligence and knowledge of the game. Manning has one left year if that. What kind of year is that going to be? Who's throwing him the ball after that? WR's don't make NFL franchises. QB's and defense do.
  20. Congrats Giant fans. Your team just sealed its fate wrapping up all that money into this head case. Why would you pay someone $19 million/year who isn't Tom Brady or Peyton Manning or even Drew Brees? The other Manning can barely chuck the ball downfield anymore and if you don't find someone else to throw him the ball, you've got nothing. Literally nothing. Bad, bad move.
  21. I don't disagree but, in cases like this, when the play results in a penalty and reviews show clear violation, and the guy you hit is out. You're out too. Only fair. It's not fair otherwise and if you don't do this, it seems to encourage you to knock players out.
  22. Its helmet to helmet clearly. Whats to stop the hitman mentality when you know you knock the opposing team's star player out?
  23. Yes they do. Only fair. Too many guys go out on that type of play.
  24. They need to institute a rule where if you concuss a guy on a defenseless penalized hit like that you are gone too. Too easy to knock opposing players out of games. Happened to KC this year in the playoffs as well. Same as NBA's flagrant rule.
