  1. I like it also, it's one of those things i may not have even noticed if you didn't point it out, but am happy to see that it's there. question on that sample page, the related articles section doesn't actually have a "more on Hockenson" area. Can I expect that, as a norm going forward, it will feature other articles on the player being discussed? Or is the other topic more of a AI decision as to what is most relevant, so it may or may not have such a link on the player himself?
  2. thx for the sanity posts DJax. is it irony that FBG.DJax is spreading common sense about real.DJax doing something stupid?
  3. my jaw literally dropped reading that. also, a 10 year contract in the NFL??? NFL owners getting silly with their money, this can't end well. err, it will for Patrick, not for the team or the league. All this does is move the scale and get marginal talents paid way more than they deserve. okay, i'm done being a hater. good for Patrick.
  4. a couple of questions please, first is an obvious one I guess, this will be a weekly feature and so not updated daily? second, will the "why it matters" comments be different than the "our take" comments in the news blogger? I use the news blogger every chance I get throughout the season and look for those comments from the staff already, so can I expect this feature will add more takes or just broader coverage than what's there already?
  5. me too, it eliminates a single winner scenario if there isn't a 16 game season plus still rewards teams that made playoffs. i like it.
  6. What I like about the subscription, in no particular order: Draft Dominator (the classic, still getting use to the new version) The weekly upgrade/downgrade article is always my go to and the only article i read religiously through the season. The new MyFBG app, which saved my season a few times when I got too busy to read up on the news Subscriber contest I don't think I've had too many complaints about the content throughout the times I subscribed and I started doing so to support the site and the crew more so than content. I think all of the content, though, or actually the way the content is presented on this site needs an update. I know you guys are trying to keep development in house to keep cost down. The new MyFBG is a good step in the right direction imo, so looking forward to more of that type of new dev. Us statheads need more cool apps.
  7. For myself personally, I agree with those who said this is your service and your forum, Joe, I don't have any problems with your social and political commentary on any of the services from FBG. If I don't agree, I know to skip over it and move on. Buuuuuuut.... I don't think this thread is the best way to gauge how your audience feels about this. Are all FBG subscribers regular posters on the board? Probably not and I'd imagine the actual % of people here that we're all familiar with is the minority in that number. Over the years I've actually gotten to know a lot of people here, most of whom I have never interacted with directly on messages or otherwise. So I can get past their, and your, opinions that I don't agree with, with a grain of salt. But if I didn't have that history, then I'd say such a statement in the email goes too far. I gave you my email address to send me football information. Anything socially or politically motivated like this should at least be separated to its own email, which I think I would accept more than having it tied to the normal emails. In this mad times, I actually appreciate everyone's perspectives and welcome it. But I'd like to separate the social and political from the football element like you've done in the FFA forums, which was a great move to keep things from just burning down.
  8. love this post. i bought into a narrative posted a few times during the last season that the whole scheme looked off and that is most likely because Nagy couldn't make the transition from Trub-centric offense to Montgomery-centric offense. Whether that was what he wanted, or if his hand was forced because Trub was just that bad, i have no idea. but forget in-game adjustments, it was painful watching the in-season adjustment. So i think it's fair to give Monty a mulligan for last season. I'm not all that high on Montgomery's talent, last year or now, and his projected ceiling imo is the same as last season. his improved situation offsets the shortfalls that we saw in him regardless of whether you blame the offensive line and play calling for that or not. Maybe I'd raise his floor a bit.
  9. and KC (with Seattle) seeing as how those are two of the top home field advantage teams in the league for many years now and that includes pre-Mahomes and pre-Andy.
  10. thanks for posting these. Just one context addition to this one above, Doug didn't bring this up. A media guy asked the specific comparison question to the Saints and Howie deferred it to Doug. Howie later brought up the Flacco/Lamar comp from the context of having two QB's with differing talents on the field together. But this doesn't seem to have been a focus for them deciding to pick Hurts. It really sounded like BPA pick and Howie really really loves QB's. He did say o-line and d-line are critical, and that they still have 4 picks to go and that there are still lots of talent on the board. He sounded very high on Reager and said he wishes his enthusiasm showed more yesterday. He pointed out they looked at trading up but the price was too high and they are very happy with Reager at that spot.
  11. I was thinking this exactly. please someone post a link or a video that makes us feel better about this one. a slight positive, not getting Mims seem to be a good thing, he's falling
  12. of those Chinn looks intriguing. looking like Mims should be there for us too. i mean, dallas takes another WR? no way, right?
  13. Not the kind of night i was hoping for, but not terrible. I hope you're wrong DJax lol, but in sentiment I'm with you. He's an Eagle now, like it or not you'll be rooting for him too. Back for round 2 tomorrow! Thanks gents.
  14. u're right, assumption is the wrong word. it was the collective desire of most of us on this thread today.
  15. having become a Reager expert over the past hour the actual point of what is being shared on Reager is how bad his QB and the offense around him has been as compared to the other receivers expected to get drafted as top 10 receivers in this draft prior to draft starting. I saw one stat that in his Jr year he was open 73% of targets, but of those less than 40% was actually catchable. So there is quite a bit of apologist type analysis on his sub 1000 yd stats. So not exactly a reach, though it could be read that way.
  16. okay, read up on Reager and I like this pick better than I did 10 minutes ago. cautiously optimistic as a Desean1.0 clone in speed and potential usage, not the older, recent model.
  17. he just said they'll host the 2020 draft...
