  1. I mean, I love Brown-he was a major component to me winning our league last year. But to do the above he would literally need to repeat last night's performance every single week. Dude is a stud, but he's not finishing the year with 140/1700/16. 115/1400/12 would still be monstrous, btw. I would have said something similar last year had some clueless, pie-in-the-sky sort come in and said Brown was going to put up 129 receptions, 1698 receiving yards, and 14 total TD's.
  2. That game was never in doubt. If the Steelers had converted a few of those ops, the Pats wouldn't have taken their foot off the gas, and the garbage time TD probably isn't even part of the equation. I doubt you were trolling anything, but it was still a bad call, and had no chance of coming through. The Pats NEVER take the foot off the gas pedal. Sorry, but it was Lewis, the utterly incompetent Bolden, and prevent D the last three+ drives. Downfield almost exclusively to get out of poor field position, then cruise control. 35-14 or 42-14 is the final score if the Pats want it to be. PIT had absolutely no answers to their ABC gameplan.
  3. Before or after Tebow and Manziel?
  4. Last year was the first year he was even remotely draftable. (Emerged as a starter partway through the previous season, after a career of utter irrelevance.) He rewarded those who gambled on him by putting up worse numbers in every category, for an ultimately mediocre campaign as a bottom-end WR2. For this, he's been rewarded by having his draft stock rise beyond his production because people like little white receivers to an irrational degree. This is underrated? If anything, he's overrated. But by all means, buy high after a night when he didn't have to play against any professional defenders. You're not underrated when you're being drafted at your ceiling. This is just guppy overreaction to a shiny week one statline.

  6. that's a good point. Dion is out there wearing Kevin Faulk's #33 - Belichick loves to have a guy play that role - it was almost Fred Jackson after BUF... but picking up the blitz and blocking is critical there. I did not notice Dion's blocking (good or bad) last night. Dion was electric in space - great receiving - but based on what I saw, he doesn't look like he can be an every down back - he looks like a guy that fills that Faulk/Vereen/Woodhead role for NE and maybe be more explosive than any of those previous guys were. He'll be a nice option for them to fall back on once Blount starts mailing it in. Can't see him retaining motivation past the bye.
  7. Not keeping his toes in bounds. My lord he's a pro. You think Brown would have made that mistake? Whoops or was that Bey? oof Ok and I was the only one drinking during the game? lol well I can confirm that you were most definitely not the only one drinking during that game. x2, but that was classic DHB. always almost enough... There's no such thing as "classic DHB" that resulted in him actually catching a ball.
  8. People are crazy. Yeah, anybody could outscore anybody, but bets don't get much safer than Rodgers against the Bears. Or much riskier than Bradford against the Falcons in Quinn's first game -- fresh off a stint with the best defense in the NFL, and looking to make a statement about the perceived tissue-like nature of his current squad. I like Bradford to do well, but I also expect him to face a pretty amped up and aggressive Falcons squad. i like the new falcons staff but they inherited a legit terribad roster. it doesn't get perceived like that because of ryan-to-julio and the ghost of roddy, but literally every position on their roster is thin or outright bad. the seconday in particular has one decent young guy and maaaaybe drafted another. they'll be better by mid year than they were last season but this could be ugly to start, especially with as much as they'll be on the field with the eagles d line ripping the falcons pocket over and over i'd play bradford over anyone but rodgers I'm not suggesting they're not bad on D. Indeed, I think they are. But I think Quinn's going to have a chip on his shoulder about that -- and about proving that he's the guy who can milk the most D out of this sad group -- and to that end, he's going to come out with the guns blazing a little bit. He's said he's tailoring to what he's got, and he doesn't have the horses to play the strict lockdown Cover 3 stuff any more. So I see him trying to be aggressive out of the gate. And really, it only takes one play.

  10. Of course not. Free agent K Nick Novak will work out for the Saints on Tuesday. Novak, 34, was surprisingly cut by the Chargers in favor of UDFA Josh Lambo. The Saints currently have inexperienced Zach Hocker as their kicker.No kicker without a job is ever going to be worth holding onto. Novak still doesn't.
  11. i'd start rodgers on the basis that there's at least a 10% chance bradford doesn't make it through the game.The same percentage Rodgers has of not making it through the game. Same as pretty much any player. It's the NFL. Everyone faces a chance. No, every player does not face the same chance. Sam comes in with a reputation as a guy who -- at this stage of his career -- is immobile, fragile, oblivious to pressure, and prone to taking bad hits. Teams will be game planning to attack him in ways they don't for every other QB. Especially because history has shown pretty conclusively it's an effective plan. Sam's gonna see a ton of Suggs style hits this year, and if he survives them, he'll have earned it.
  12. If they haven't already started making them, be ready for inevitable Eric Dickerson comparisons. People see the weight difference and think it's too big a gap to be apples to apples, but ED was the size of the linebackers he was playing against in college, so in terms of on-field dynamics, I think it's something to look at. The height and stride made me think ED right away.
  13. Josh Brown's been converting around 90% for years now, and that offense going into year two with a better roster of weapons AND no defense is going to be silly prolific. I've been pretty much auto-selecting him any time circumstance has led me to wait till the last round on a K. There seems to be no market for him in FF, and I see no reason he shouldn't be in the top third of K producers week-in, week-out.
