  1. Don't really have a dog in this fight, and I owned Manning for about 1/3 of his career, so I certainly don't hate the guy. I just don't think he's a shoe in for the HOF, nor do I really think he belongs. Mostly average QB that compiled some respectable lifetime stats because of longevity. The Superbowls certainly add to his case, but honestly, was he at any point a top player at his position? Brady, Brees, Big Ben, Rodgers easily were better players and have better cases for HOF. Rivers was a better player too, his case isn't quite a complete.
  2. Am I not aware of a third option in calling offensive plays? There's Run/Pass and something else? They've gotta call something, and its pick your poison with the Bears D. They are weaker vs the pass than the run. Packers ran Jones and Williams 18 times for 39 yards. That's 2.16 yards/attempt. Less than half of the 4.7y/a they gained when calling pass plays.
  3. Every smart offensive coach out there will pass the ball far more than they run it vs the Bears. If the Bears D has a weakness, it's through the air. I wouldn't read very much into the numbers from this game. Here are my takeaways: The Bears Defense is really good, maybe better than last year with the development of Roquan Smith. The Packers Defense is good, maybe top 10. Mitch Trubisky was really bad. I don't think we can write him off completely yet, but unless his play improves dramatically, the Bears will be in the market for a QB next offseason.
  4. Rapoports tweet is deleted. May be premature on the NE signing.
  5. As for the Packers draft, I'd look at what we've seen from Gute to date. Priorities have been largely what analytics would tell you to be prioritized. Basically do everything you can to improve your passing game and limit the other teams passing game. TE has been essentially a black hole since Jermicheal Finley left. I'll be very surprised if they don't use one of their top 3 picks on one. There's obviously a ton of very good edge players coming out, and pass rushers are so valuable it wouldn't be a shock to see them go there even after signing the Smiths. Clearly the Oline needs to be restocked with some youth as well.
  6. Patriots sign Tate for 4 years 54 Million. Per Ian Rapport
  7. IMO Beckham is in line for a monster season. With Kitchens and Monken designing this offense, I think they will put up 500+ points this year. 172 Targets/109/1612/16
  8. What percentage of RBs miss at least 25% of the season? I honestly don't know, but if I were to venture a guess, I'd say 1/3. What is the health history of Breida, McKinnon and Coleman specifically? So lets say you a putting together a roster for the season, and you are flush with money under the cap. You are also coming off a season where your #1 RB missed the entire season, and the RB you went with missed all or most of 3 games, and has a reputation for consistently being dinged up. In FA a good RB you formerly coached becomes available and the price is modest. The commitment is 2 years. Do you sign him? This may not be good for any of the three as far as their values in FF, but as far as the 49ers go, it makes a ton of sense to have all three.
  9. Maybe I am missing something, but I just see this thread as way too optimistic for Chubb. A 6 game suspension may or may not happen, but I think Hunt can reasonably argue that he's already missed 5 games without pay due to this incident. I think people are deluding themselves if they believe Hunt will be a bit player once he comes back. He's legitimately a very good RB in his own right, and we really have no idea what Monken & Kitchens will decide to do with both as of yet. Also seems pretty doubtful they would take a young stud RB that they can control for 2 years VERY cheaply and use him as trade bait. Cleveland looks like the best team in the AFC North to me, and I don't think they'll be trading away young difference making players anytime soon.
  10. I don't think he's a 2019 first round FF pick. Hard to argue with his massive TD upside though. Back in 2004 Corey Dillon put up 345/1635/12 with 15/103/1 receiving for the Patriots. This year, if you toss out the five games that Michel was a bit player or got hurt (weeks 1-3 early season rookie + injury, weeks 7-10 injured) he put up 245/1152/12 in 12 games. That is a 326/1536/16 pace over a full season. I'm not gonna project that going into next year for him, but its definitely within his range of outcomes. White is phenomenal in his role as pass catching back. So I don't think 50 receptions is in the cards for Michel. However, Michel is a respectable pass catcher, even lining up in the slot in college at times. Just for the sake of keeping teams honest, you can see him getting 25-30 receptions next year.
  11. Per PFF, Aaron Jones was the 12th best RB in the league this year. He led the league in yards per attempt. Averaged 5.5 in 2017 and 2018. Packers roster is riddled with holes, especially on defense. I can't think of a position they need less than a RB.
  12. You can’t be serious about the Derrick Henry take. Guy averaged 3.7 yards per carry over his first 128 carries (12 games). Not only that, Henry had 18 carries in week 2 and again in week 3. Got 56 and 57 yards. 3.1 ypc. You are also assuming the OC is fully in charge of playing time decisions when the GM just paid Dion Lewis a big FA contract.
  13. Gotta say I'm a little surprised by this. Nearly every Packer fan was screaming for Jones to be the starter by week 3 or 4. (right after his 2 game suspension). He clearly was far more dynamic than Williams. McCarthy refused to start him until week 7. From week 7-14, when he was the starter, he was the #5 RB in the league and averaged nearly 19ppg in PPR. You also have to account for the fact that McCarthy was running one of the most stale offenses in the league. We don't know who the next coach is going to be just yet, but it sure looks like its going to be a forward thinking offensive mind. (Josh McDaniels has the inside track right now). If you believe a new coach can invigorate Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense (and I do), there is ample room for huge growth. Packers were 12th in yards, and 14th in scoring this year. They scored 376 points. Top offenses in KC, LA and NO, all scored between 504-565 points. Even if the Packers score 450 next year that's 10 more TDs to go around. That could push Jones into the 20-25ppg category.
  14. Jets run defense has collapsed (130+ yards plus 5 TDs in 4/5 games), and Jamaal Williams is going to get nearly 100% of the work. He's a quality start this week.
  15. I picked up Kelly and CJ. If Gurley is ruled out, and McVay names a starter between the two, it could absolutely be a Damien Williams week 15 redux. Cards are 29th vs the run and even though the Rams haven't been playing great, they should win this one easily. They are 16 point favorites with an implied team total of 30.
