  1. Agreed. Major issue with Chargers was an aging QB with no mobility. With Brady they'd be going to an even-older... Oh wait a minute. Maybe I don't agree so much.
  2. I am no fan of the Patriots, but I am a fan of greatness... and I think Brady should retire. He's got nowhere to go but (further) down. Nobody outside of Foxboro is going to listen to a 43-yr old system QB w/ diminishing skills yelling at them to "DO THEIR JOB"
  3. MVP race was over the night the Ravens plowed through the Patriots. Couple homer picks here/there for others, but this thing could be the most lopsided MVP vote ever.
  4. What would happen in other professional sports if a team was caught, clearly CHEATING for a THIRD time? What would happen in NCAA if a team was caught, clearly CHEATING for a THIRD time? What would happen on poker night if a player was caught, clearly CHEATING for a THIRD time? What happens at work if an employee gets caught, clearly CHEATING for a THIRD time? 3-time loser means lessons have not yet been learned... impeach and punish to the fullest extent of public opinion.
  5. America's #1 Patriots hater thinks banning the Pats from the play-offs is proper punishment for their latest cheat bust: article Excerpt: How about this: Kick them out of the 2019 NFL playoffs. Oh, I know. That looks ridiculous. I can hear talk-show idiots in Boston now, sending readers my way on Twitter and blasting me on the air, calling me obsessed with their team, missing the irony of their own obsession with me. But whatever. Idiots are going to idiot. Be Boston, Boston. Here, I’ll be real: Roger Goodell needs to hit the Patriots so hard, they never cheat again. I mean, this is getting ridiculous. All those fines haven’t done a thing to an NFL franchise printing money. All those docked draft picks haven’t deterred a team whose coach and quarterback are so good, they can plug-and-play anybody, anywhere, and keep rolling. No, at a minimum, it’s time to take games from the Patriots. At a maximum, it’s time to take the 2019 playoffs from them. What’s the alternative? Forcing Goodell to give Kraft the Vince Lombardi Trophy when they most likely win another Super Bowl in a few months? Please. Enough’s enough. It would be justice for Goodell to send the Patriots to bed without their playoff supper, and see if they’re still so naughty going forward. He won’t do it, and I realize that, so he might as well do this:
  6. Well, as a fantasy owner that has won championships on the arm of Tom Brady... I just wanted to come here and say "thanks for the memories" Wanted to get that in just in case he doesn't survive Saturday.
  7. Definitely not Allen... let me think about the other 3. 🤔
  8. Fact is the greatest dynasty in sports will be forever tainted with the smell of cheating. Credibility... much like virginity... once it is lost, well, ya know.
  9. Can't we all just agree on one "FF is 75% luck" thread?
  10. Maybe, but looks pretty simple to me... no Gronk... aging QB... double Edelman, spy White, done. I'm not afraid to bury them. Changing of the guard in the AFC East... FINALLY!
  11. Interesting... so I guess we just learned that Zac Taylor follows the Shark Pool.
  12. Not at all... now he can find his way bay to the Eagles, come in in relief and make the starter look bad, and then sign a big free agent deal somewhere else. Then he'll stink... Rinse, repeat.
  13. I think he meant that one of these supposedly "weak" AFC East teams that hands the Patriots 2 wins every year just went into Dallas and beat the doors off the Cowboys. Not to mention one of the others just knocked out the Iggles.
  14. Agreed, but that tendency graphic they threw up on the screen last night regarding percent passing when White's in the game vs Michel has to bother BB. Nobody wants to be any kind of predictable from a personnel standpoint. Right now the Patriots are looking about as easy to defend as I can remember... double Edelman, spy White, and patiently sack the Brady. That Bills game could be very interesting. Hard to see their offense clicking to the point where Michel plays a huge role like he did in 2018.
  15. Not a Cowboys fan, but this is the battle-cry of perennial "also-rans" that simply fill out the post season schedule on a rotating basis with other also-rans. The goal is to secure a 1st round bye and be home for the play-offs. That's (obviously) the easiest and quickest path to the Super Bowl. The list of Super Bowl champs that played 3 play-off games on the road to get there is pretty short. I'm sure the Cowboys fan base thought that they would be right in the thick of this pursuit... not hoping to back into the post-season as an 8-8 division champion with no quality wins.
  16. Redskins still with a shot to win the NFC East... hottest team in the division.
  17. Not tired of FF... one league... 27th season (redraft)... same guys. VERY TIRED of RF... real football. Emotion has been completely sucked out of the game putting big play moments on hold until replay officials tell us what we really saw. And now that the Pandora's Box of challenging penalties (or non-penalties) has begun... I'm out. Perfectly happy to just catch up on the stats later on.
  18. Got me curious, so I had a look at our archives... this would be RBs finishing top-5 in fantasy for 3 (or more) consecutive seasons, regular seasons (excludes fantasy playoffs), half-PPR, going back to 1993, in order: E. Smith - 4 yrs, B. Sanders - 3 yrs, Te. Davis - 3yrs, C. Martin - 3 yrs, M. Faulk - 4 yrs, P. Holmes - 4 yrs, L. Tomlinson - 6 yrs, T. Barber - 3 yrs, A. Peterson - 7 yrs, M. Jones-Drew - 3 yrs, A. Foster - 3yrs, D. Murray - 3 yrs. 2019 would have been Gurley's 3rd straight. 2020 McCaffrey can make his 3rd straight.
  19. Depends on your scoring system. In our league (half PPR) he nosed out Barkley in 2018 and Lev Bell in 2017 for the #1 spot. 2016 he finished RB18 (just behind Bilal Powell).
  20. Some elite RBs fall off the cliff (see Shaun Alexander)... others tail off slowly. History is on the side of Gurley never having another 2018.
  21. Not to set off a hijack, but i kind of raised this point in the Christian McCaffrey thread... folks eyeing him as the obvious #1 overall pick for 2020 redrafts. This would mean that you're banking on him being the first ever RB to follow up a peak year (he is in rare air in 2019) with an even higher peak in 2020. Overwhelming odds say he'll fall about 20% short of his 2019 season.
  22. Yes, our league winners over the past 27 years have overwhelmingly been the teams with the lowest PA total. Highest PA total dictates the losers as well. This year (so far) PA differential between "best" and "worst" teams is 424 pts... that's over 35 additional pts/game against that the "loser" has to deal with.
  23. On the topic of history (recent or other)... seems like elite RBs have a very wedge-shaped production curve... sharp rise with a distinct peak, and then a varying degree of downward slope until they're spent. I think we can all agree that 2018 was Gurley's peak, so only makes sense that he would - at the very least - have a major regression in 2019 and slow descent from here on. Not many "twin peaks" stories out there on franchise RBs.
